I'm sure Colb now feels a little better to get that off his chest! I'm sure most of his last post came from our visit to SLC last week, and how he really does miss Cafe Rio and the fact that it was so fun to visit our ward there and family! It's going to be okay sweetie! We had a great time with our fam and friends and it was fun for Cici to play with her cute cousin's and aunty's and uncle's as well as her Grandpa's and Grandma's.

We also had a couple of new additions to our families! (Cute baby Sky, and cute baby Braxton!) One great thing about living away from fam and friends and Cafe Rio is that it really makes you appreciate them that much more, is I'm sure what Colb was trying to say! Right Babe?

Adopted from day one, this is Sky only a couple day's old! So cute!)

Chels and daddy Brian! Born in June at

1 lb 6 oz and got to come home finally

a couple of days ago weighing around 7 lbs!

Good job lil' rockstar!)

And here's a little bit more of what we've been up to!

Colb has been working a lot of course, but finds spare time to go to Jackson Lake and wake board with his friend Eric, or go fishing, or spend time with the dogs and Cici and I down at the river! Doesn't sound too bad now does it! He has also been spending a lot of time with his photography, and absolutely loves taking pics up here no matter what he says!!! I swear at least a couple 100 a day, and that's being conservative! he posted a few in the previous post.

Daddy giving Cici a Mani! (he's good at it, I still have a hard time cutting her little nails, cuz I'm afraid I'll cut her!)

Dad also always knows how to have fun, huh Ci!

Bella and Lola don't quite feel the same as Colb and they are convinced that they were born to live in Jackson, (a dog Mecca!) by now and can no longer make it through the day without a trip to the river or a near by hike sooo....

Cici and I trek out sometimes twice a day, in between naps of course, to go to the river and/or on a hike! We don't even have to repeat our trails too often due to the fact that they seem to be endless! Sometimes while we are exploring new places we find fun lil' things like this sign! They had them all over these back roads! Someone thought they were pretty funny...... and so did we!

(Is that even legal?)

And of course we can't leave without Lola's Ball, which made it's way into an interesting place the other day! Lola started getting all whiny by the bathroom so I went in there and found this

pretty sight! At first glance I had no idea then it hit me she was probably getting a drink but had mixed feelings about putting her ball down! It took a butter knife and a few min., but everything worked out in the end!

I love our days, although I'd be lying if I told you I would rather hike instead of bike these trails! Although I can't exactly attach lil' girl to the back of the mountain bike on these trail. So the goal for next year is to find a sitter every once in a while so we can take advantage of some of those fun things to do out here without a lil' one all the time!

I've also been doing a lot more cooking despite all this talk of Taco Bell and what not, and I am enjoying that too! We usually visit Colb most days at work, just down the street, and bring him lunch, (Love that he is so close now!) But if you have any fun recipes send them my way!

Love these pics, actually taken today! She was such a happy girl, after church of course!

We each had to have separate shots taken cuz Bell couldn't work the camera!

Cicily is now 7 months old and is now enjoying a lot of different foods, and has been gumming pretzels and fruits and crackers! (Sooooo messy, yet soooo cute!) She loves to eat her feet and has them in her mouth constantly with a big gummy smile, which I'll miss when she gets teeth (not yet by the way!). She is super close to crawling and I know we are in trouble when she can! She is still a very smiley happy baby most of the time and we just love her to pieces!!!!!!

Cic, slobbering on a pretzel as Lola gives very close supervision!

MILESTONES! (had to post these last pics from today!)

I said she is close to crawling here is a pic series of how practice usually goes!

(warm up with a couple of push-ups!)

Look at Mama to make sure she's watching!

Get up on all fours!

Throw self forward toward toys and bink and brace for fall!

Get the treasure, and give an "It's all good" smile!

She also today for the first time pulled herself from her belly to sitting! And not only did mom think it was pretty fancy but lil' girl thought she was pretty amazing herself!

Sorry if this last pic action was a lil' much for some peeps, but it's what we live for these day's and we think it's pretty great! Love ya all!
Also sorry about the formatting! It kind of sucks, but I was done!!!

Love the pics and the hillarious commentary! Pretty soon you're going to have more commentary on the potty, when little Ci get mobil. Watch out! Maren is kind of growing out of putting her fingers in there, ick!
