So I'm finally getting some pictures up from MS. We've been here for a month now and I'm getting used to it. There isn't that much to do which is hard when you have a child, because you want them to be outside, play and have fun and it's getting so hot out that it's hard for me to be at the park with Kaylee when it's 100 degrees not mentioning she is running around and getting hot too.
There is a children's museum not too far from our house and it's actually really neat. They have a lot for the kids to do there and opened up a splash area just a couple of days ago and oh boy I don't have to mention how much Kaylee loves water. So here is just a few pictures of her having a good time playing.

My daughter for sure

My mom sent me some pictures of me when I was about Kaylee's age and well, I can't help but think that we look like sisters in these. Don't you think so?

Last couple of weeks in Utah

We've been here in Mississippi for 2 weeks now, and I came across these pictures from Utah that I think are too cute not to post so here is WAY TOO MANY pics of my beautiful daughter. I'll get to posting about Mississippi soon. Have a great weekend!

We went to the park like always on a nice warm day

We played in the snow in April (only in Utah....)

We returned to the park when the sunshine came back

My BYU graduate

Ryan graduated BYU couple of weeks ago and you can only imagine what a happy day that was for all of us, but mostly for him.
I've seen him spend hours and hours a day writing papers, doing homework, working on presentations and studying for tests. He spend as much time with me and Kaylee as he possibly could after he came home from school and then had to make up for that time spent playing with Kaylee and being a husband to me by staying up until 3,4 or even 5 AM catching up on homework and studying.
And when the semester finally came to an end each year, he helped me pack all of our stuff, drove 2 days to wherever we were going to live for 4 months and worked harder than most people I know all summer long. And when each of those long hot summers were over, he started school again just couple of days after getting back to Provo. We never really had time for vacation between semesters.
I'm so proud of Ryan. I really don't know anybody who works harder than him almost all year round to make sure our family has everything we need and more.
I'm beyond grateful that I was able to stay home with our daughter and didn't have to leave her for hours each day to go to work. That's pretty impressive for a full time student, don't you think?
Now, I'm so happy this chapter of our life is over but I'm even more happy seeing these pictures of my handsome, hot husband in his cap and gown sm
iling and knowing that all of his hard work finally payed off.

Congratulations babe, you DID IT!!!!!!!!
