August and September were those months that cost a lot of money on all types of normal home/car repairs. One day I had to take Danny to and from work because his car was in the shop. Well on the way to pick him up I noticed to the van started to smoke. Luckily it was right when I was getting Danny. He checked things out and couldn't find anything wrong so we decided to start going home, well it started up again. We stopped at Wendy's so I could feed the kids and Danny realized it had to do with the brakes. He messed around with it a bit and deemed it safe to drive but I didn't want to chance it with the kids so we called up our friends to come and pick us up. The Anderson's took the kids and I home and Danny drove the van using the emergency break. It turned out there were a few things wrong with the brakes all of which was not covered under our warranty, awesome sauce! But it is all fixed now and thank goodness for Dave Ramsey that we had the money to pay for it :) And now here are some pictures of the event... Lily and Mason loved watching dad jack up the van and of course Lily got "hands on helping" thus her super messy, greasy hands :)

Today Rick and I hiked Dromedary Peak which is located in the Wasatch Mountains outside of Salt Lake City, Utah. It took around ~8 hours round trip. We hiked through trees, rivers, rocks, peebles, boulders and snow on a hot day. Great trip!

Mason liked that his airplane matched the airplane on his suitcase :)
While we were waiting to get on our plane, they announced that some servicemen were coming off the plane so they got lots of flags and banners for us to hold and cheer them off the plane. It was really cool experience and totally made me teary eyed. Probably from being all pregnant and such :)
On the airplane:
And now in Utah at Grammy and Papa's house:
In the cabin at Bear Lake, these next 2 pictures are curtsey of Mason :) Rio was watched over and over and over much to Uncle Brigham's dismay! haha
Oh goodness, Miss Lily checking out my new bras hahahaha
Lily got into the nail polish by herself while were at Grandma Fitt's house. Luckily she made more of a mess on her toes than on the floor! Don't leave this girl alone for a second.
