A smattering of recent random photos that I enjoy.

 I have decided that what this here blog needs is a photopalooza. Because there are entirely too many wordy posts going on here. I pondered putting these photos into some sort of logical order, but after much thought, I've decided against it, because I am way too lazy for that nonsense. Without further ado:

 Me and my widdle bothers! They are so cute. I still can't believe little Rhino is on his mission!

 Here are some pictures of us in Florida! What a great time it was. There are my weirdo brothers on the beach. My dad got them all matching bright orange swimsuits. Unexpected bonus: they all had little combs attached to a tether in the back pocket. You never know when you're going to need to tame your luscious locks while in the surf.
 Scenes from the beach. Oh how I love the feeling of sand between my toes! I love it less in my ears and nostrils and swimsuit, but it's worth it. I want to move to the beach.
 Katie is so cute and pregnant! I am just having a food baby. I didn't want her to feel alone in her big bellied-ness. This picture is disturbing, but also amusing.
We like to dress up while on vacation.
 I'm on a horse.
 Off on our equine adventure! My horse kept biting Brent's horses' tail. And also I wanted to take all of the horses home with me. They can live in our spare bedroom.
 We were making Ryan into a missionary. But I decided that making him into a missionary was kind of boring. So I decided that he needed some, ahem, bonus features. I'm all about keeping it appropriate for the future missionary.
 Our final product. After this I sprinkled some sand over Ryan's nose, just because there was nothing he could do about it and I am mean. And it came to pass that it was hilarious.
 And now we're in Alabama! This is the genius invention of my cousin: Dock + carpet + plastic + soapy water= Most excellent Slip-N-Slide.
 Look at me go! I'm slaloming! I love it so.
 My little cousins are so cute and sassy. So unfair that none of them are cursed with awkward phases of my magnitude.
 Waterfall! Always a fun time. Except for two very large women who very nearly fell off the top of the waterfall while we were there. But that is a story for another time.
 Brent's calender shoot. My brothers are such goobers.
 And now for a random picture of Cary, holding Abby. He loves to pick her up and hold her like a baby. Her feelings on this remain unclear.
 Once upon a time, we were at Petsmart and I found this hilarious and precious calender of Lab Puppies. I made Cary buy it for me, and it hangs proudly in my kitchen. Now I just need a puppy sweater, puppy mouse pad, and puppy mug and my collection of embarrassing puppy items will be complete. I have been looking forward to August's puppy picture since January! I just want to take that soggy and pathetic looking puppy home with me!
 Sometimes, Cary has to take my car to work. He is always complaining about it, and I never understood why. Until one day I walked up to my car and noticed the "Ski Like A Girl" bumper sticker, and "Air Force Wife" license plate frame. Heh.
And finally, last August when my mom was driving out to Alabama with me, we stopped for the night at my uncle's house in Topeka, Kansas. When we woke up the next morning, my mom was super sick and thought she had appendicitis. I thought she had a case of hypochondria. But we took her to the hospital, and it turns out that yes indeed, her appendix was very angry. So she got an appendectomy, we stayed in Topeka for a couple of days, she flew home to Colorado and I drove the rest of the way to Alabama all by my onesie. So I decided that she needed a t-shirt to honor the memory. I giggled myself silly while making her "I left my (picture of appendix) in Topeka, KS" shirt.


I hope you enjoyed that little collection of pictures.  

Don't get used to it, seeing as I am now camera-less.


  1. The ski like a girl sticker is quite funny. Perhaps you should get him a matching sticker for his car :)

    And sometimes I push out my tummy to see how far my stomach will go before it starts stretching into ugliness stretch marks. I do have to wonder how big I will get. It scares me when I think about it :P

  2. For almost a year Tony had to drive my car (the only car we had at the time) which had an "Army Wife" License Plate (on the front). It was probably more embarrassing when he drove that to drill for the army than to his civilian job. Haha. But I love your "ski like a girl" bumper sticker. That's fantastic. Btw, I LOVE your blog posts. With or without pictures. =)

  3. seriously though. i need more pictures of your life.

    1. i'm glad other people have food babies like me. your dress is very cute in that picture though. i like it.
    2. i like your swimsuit.
    3. cary holding puppy is hilarious. and preciousness.
    4. buy a new camera. pronto. or have a baby, or do both so i can see pictures of the baby. pulleeez.

  4. I can't believe nobody else commented on that appendix shirt!! That was amazingly funny!! Or maybe I'm just easily entertained. Either way, thanks for giving me my giggle for the day. ;) Miss you Amy!!

  5. Amy, I want your Bama pictures! I love you, girl.
