Okay, so my last post was of my Oregon cost trip, So lets start there. The reason I went to OR was to help my sister plan (and of course celebrate) my niece Maisie 1st birthday. I was there a year ago for the birth and now I got to see her growing up, and turning one years old. I'm going to post a few photos, but my Sister documented the event ( and the little life of Maisie) on her blog over at Sugar & Spice and Everything Nice. Its a good read.

On June 19th was Fathers Day! I love my father like nobody business. Him and I are so alike with our humor and interest. Its not hard to see how close we are. Anyone that knows us can tell we are a father daughter duo right away. I always take it was a complement. I think my dad is one of the funniest, handiest, hardworking people that I know. He will offer his help to anyone. I couldn't have asked for a better Dad. He's always looking out for me and he will do anything for me. I love the time him and I share together and I'm glad that I get to call him my Father.

My baby cat Elliott, turned 2 on June 2nd. Isn't she so cute?
June 17th was Sammie and Austins 2nd anniversary. I can't believe that it's been two years! I'm so happy for them and the fact they had my little niece. They are such a great couple. I have known Austin since I was 14 years old. Him and I did choir together in high school. I swear, that if it wasn't for him, I wouldn't have had so much fun my last year at Sprague. I couldn't have thought of a better person for my best friend, and sister. Congrats you two and thanks for letting me be apart of you biggest moments in life so far, I am truly honored. I miss you three so much and I hope that I'll see ya soon.

The Forth Of July growing up was always a big event at our place. Being that we lived in Oregon, we could actually buy real fireworks. Being that Washington was so close, we could get bad ass firework. Some how, my dad would find a way to Washington and bring home roman candles and mortars. (right on Dad!) Our driveway was always full of family and friends, grilling up hamburgers and hot dogs and of course s'mores. Now that I'm older, and living in AZ, (real) fireworks aren't really something that I can have. You can buy some very crappy one at the store but that's not the 4th to me. Go big or go home I guess. So I watched the ballpark down the street from my house have there show. To be honest, it was pretty darn good. I was close enough to smell them. All my photos were on my phone which is getting fixed so this photo will have to do.
As for me, I have been trying to stay cool this summer, and believe it or not, the summer is flying by. Though I am glad that fall is right around the corner. Kolby and I are wanted to head to California here soon for some relaxing time at the beach. He just got off probation (the first 90 days) from his new job so we can actually go somewhere. We haven't really done anything this summer so I hope we can fit something in now that is job is secure.
