Vacation: Swimming

Ruby went swimming for the first time while we were on vacation. She had so much fun! And can I tell you how cute she looked?

Vacation: The Somers'

We went to Draper to spend time with my family. Ruby met some more cousins and had fun hanging out with Ivy and Lilly, Annie and Jonathan's girls (who weren't even supposed to be there, but came up and surprised us! It was wonderful!)

They had fun taking baths together.

We also went to temple square to see an exhibit of the Salt Lake City temple. There was an amazing model of the temple and the rest of the exhibit was dedicated to the construction of the temple.

And Lilly loved looking at the flowers.

And Ruby just had fun spending time with aunts and uncles.

Vacation: The Berry's

We spent two weeks in Utah on vacation this summer and we had such a blast! I can't think of a better way to spend time off than having fun with family. We spent our first week in Logan with Bobby's mom and enjoyed time with her and with Xax and Shannon and their beautiful new girl, Hailey.

Bobby's mom fed us well and we had a great time talking, laughing and enjoying the cuteness of Ruby and Hailey.

And Ruby also met Great Grandma Somers for the first time.

We blessed Ruby while we were in Logan and we didn't take any pictures...yes, I'm a terrible mother. The day was so busy, Ruby was blessed and then we dashed off to Hailey's blessing and dinner, that it totally escaped my mind. But it was a beautiful experience and I'm so happy that I'm married to a wonderful man who makes a great father. And Ruby was an angel the entire day despite her frantic parents.

Shopping and Ice Cream

We took a little trip up to the outlets this week and bought some things for Ruby and Bobby. The weather was gorgeous and it was nice walking around. But the best part had to be stopping at Sarris Chocolates for ice cream...mmmm...ice cream. The sundaes are huge and sooo good! Bobby and I shared one and we were both feeling gluttonous and very full.

And Ruby watched intently...I think this girl is going to enjoy ice cream just as much as her mommy.

Softball Tournament

Our Stake had a softball tournament on Saturday, which Bobby played in and Ruby and I came to cheer our team on.

Our ward took 2nd place...granted only 3 or 4 wards showed up, but we were still proud of our victory.

Ruby had fun making new friends.

And took a little nap when the softball got too boring.

Ruby's been laughing pretty regularly the last few weeks. The problem is she has a finicky sense of humor: what's funny to her one day, or even one minute, isn't funny the next. So we don't have a sure fire way of making her giggle for us. And when she is laughing, as soon as she sees the camera coming, her obsession with that kicks in and the laughing stops. So one night I was talking to her in my highest pitched voice (that usually can elicit a few giggles from her) and tried to sneak the camera in and this is what we have:
