big update

i'm not sure why i took a blogging break this summer but i want to get everything caught up.  i figured i'll just put everything important or that i can think of into one big post. we moved from virginia to las vegas for the summer.  nate is interning at a law firm. we have also made lots of trips to utah and had quite a few visitors.

 nate's 28th b-day.  we could not get a good pic. we went to bachi burger and coldstone plus a lot of my fam was in town so that was fun.

elin's 1 yr. old pics/family pics

i wanted someone to take pics of elin for her birthday and thought we would take a few with nate and i also.  we took them at the rotunda which is so charlottesville to me.  i didn't love our family pics but elin's turned out pretty cute.  i had a hard time narrowing them down.












gosh i love this girl so much. she is my life.

visitors and d.c.

my parents came to visit the beginning of april and we had such a great time. we were able to sightsee with them quite a bit but i wish we would of had more time in dc to see more.  there is so much to do there!
 monticello, thomas jefferson's home.
 the white house. we were able to visit everything on the mall and we did a few more things in dc.  we stayed right downtown, it was like a block and a half from the white house and it was so fun to be close to everything.

 tj statue

 i think my mom forgot what we really wanted in the background. haha
 i love the capitol building.
 founding farmers for breakfast.  i made our reservation 10 days in advance and there was only one time left! nate's french toast was above and beyond the best french toast i've ever had. 
time with grandpa
 my parents bought her a cupcake since they couldn't be there for her actual birthday. she loved it.
thanks mom and dad for such a fun trip!
