One of the highlights of the week for me was the faith walk. I found much symbolism in it and I felt like I got a glimpse of what Wyatt may be watching as he sees his family go through life. We were blindfolded and had to go through a ropes course in the moutains. At the end of the faith walk we as leaders got to greet the girls with a "Welcome Home" and a big hug. I just had to think that is exactly what Wyatt is going to get to do with each of his family members. Such a lucky kid. All in all it was a good week. I was worn out when I got home and it's been nice to just chill at home for a few days. I don't have permission to post the pictures of the girls which I took lots of but I did take a few of the beautiful surroundings that I got to enjoy for a few days. There were also lots of butterflies there which gave me many Wyatt moments. Love that!

Summer for us means reunions. We went to another one last weekend on Derek's side of the family. We went camping at Red Canyon. Such a beautiful campsite by Bryce Canyon. Love the red rock. The kids had loads of fun playing with cousins. So grateful for family. Here are a few pictures from the weekend.

Miss this guy...will the ache ever go away? I don't think so. Not until he is in
my arms again which on most days seems like an eternity. But I will continue on,
hoping for that wonderful day when my arms will not ache anymore and will be
filled with my sweet Wyatt again.
And I got so many sweet and kind comments. It just reinforced to me how many wonderful people there are and what goodness there is in this world. The ache for Wyatt will never leave until that day when he is in my arms again. And I wouldn't want it any other way. Though the ache is beyond hard it continues to show me how much I love him and how much he is truly missed each and every second of the day. So as I said before I will continue on with hope for the day when my arms are filled with my sweet Wyatt. Until then I'm doing my best to enjoy this life and what it has to offer. Though it can be most difficult at times there is much good to be found especially when we look for those simple things to be grateful for.

I saw this idea here. Loved it and decided that we would do one for Emily's room. So, we went to DI to find a frame. Found this one for 3 dollars. Emily had a hard time seeing the vision of this frame. But I knew what a little white spray paint could do.

Here are some pictures taken on the 4th and 5th of July. Hayley was actually requesting that I take some of these pictures so I couldn't turn that down. So, yet again there are a ton of Hayley. I was able to get Tyler to sit for one picture which is a miracle.
We had a fun 4th and 5th of July. We were able to go up north and spend it with family. We had a bar-b-q at my parents house on the evening of the 4th and then did some backyard fireworks. Lots of fun! On the 5th we got together with some dear friends of ours and enjoyed a relaxing morning at the park. After that we were able to spend the rest of the afternoon with Derek's family celebrating his mom and dad's 50th anniversary(forgot the camera..my bad). We went to chuck a rama and to a movie. It's always a treat to spend time with family. It was a fun and eventful weekend and hopefully a memorable one for our kids.
