Well, as you can see the month of July has been a very busy month for us so far. My last few posts were pretty depressing so I thought id brighten up the mood a little bit and let you all know what we've been up to lately. Since my doctor finally took me off bed rest Ive been able to get out and have fun with my cute hubby. We went to a Nationals professional baseball game, visited my brother and his family in Virginia Beach, went to DC on the 4th of July, had pool parties, etc. I love the month of July; its always my favorite and although its been a tough month for us, we've still managed to have a lot of fun!

Skyler and I at the Nationals game! lol, we lost but it was a cool experience. It was such a beautiful day and I was having no pain at all that day so we were both VERY happy!

Here's Skyler's office (well most of them) at the pool party! They did so well that week that Skyler gave them the day off so we had a pool day with everyone.

Me, Jamie, and Sara. "The Wives" hanging out by the pool watching our hubbies make a fool of themselves. lol

We were lucky enough to spend the fourth in our Nations Capital! We took the Metro to DC and spent the entire day there. There were concerts, parades, fireworks, you name it! There is nothing more patriotic than being in DC on the 4th of July, not to mention the fireworks there were phenomenal!

Waiting for the fireworks to start. :)

Whats cooler than watching fireworks over the Washington Monument?!

We were also able to visit my brother and his family in the Virginia Beach area. I hadn't been able to see my nephew James in years so it was so nice being able to play with him again! I'm sure he was confused when his so called "aunt" is hugging him and kissing him to death. haha but he was so sweet and hugged me right back like he remembered me all along! I just love this little boy so much and I wish they lived closer so I could see him every day! HE IS SUCH A CUTIE!!!

James loved Skyler. :)

I seriously have the cutest nephews ever...

I guess that pretty much sums it up! I go to Utah tomorrow to visit my friends and family. I am SO excited! I'm sure ill probably still be emotional, especially seeing my youngest nephew Emmett. I swear every time I see babies now I always cry. haha but I cannot wait to hold and kiss my nephews, it has been way too long and man have I missed them! My doctor prescribed me vicodin, so now that I'm drugged up I feel MUCH better!lol It's so nice feeling human again and not be in pain constantly. I went in this morning for more blood work and all the nurses were very sweet and of course they all know be my name since I'm always there. They said I look much better and healthier now, so that makes me feel better. It's good to know I don't look sickly anymore! haha Now i'm just hoping and praying my levels have gone down so I can officially be done with the drugs and on the road to recovery! YAY! Its been hard but at least I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!


  1. oh I am so gad you are doing so much better. you look gorgeous as always and DC looks like a lot of fun! Have fun with your family in Utah. Love you!

  2. I can't tell you how happy I am that you are doing so much better! Just remember that it's ok to cry and if you need to have a break down I'm only a phone call away! You are beautiful inside and out Bethany!
