fall time is here!

this weekend we went up to snow basin to see the fall leaves! 
YOU GUYS. if you haven't yet, get in your car and go for a drive and see them! 
it was so darn beautiful! 
couple of days before we went up, it snowed so the bottom of mountain was fall 
and the top was winter.  it was breathtaking. 
we spent a couple hours up there and i love how much we love mountains. 
andrew was right at home i tell ya!
^^i kept telling brandon my favorite was the pops of red and orange!^^ 
^^those blue eyes..... like what!^^
^^it was so foggy up top!^^
^^and this is why daddy is the fun one!^^
^^he would just start walking and go exploring. he loves the outdoors!^^
^^we rode the gondala and it was so worth it! this was right when we started going up and andrew wasn't so sure with what was happening! ha^^
^^and then he got comfortable and was all about it!^^
^^it was so pretty riding it! you could see for miles and got an extra good view of the colors!^^
^^just talking away!^^
^^this was up top. it was freezing! there was about a foot of snow and we saw people snowboarding and skiing. i will say that snow got me really excited for christmas ha!^^
^^baby in a winter coat... nothing cuter i tell ya!^^
^^I LOVE YOU SO MUCH ANDREW. and red nose from being up in the cold!^^

my 24th birthday!

my birthday was this last past week and it was great! 
i seriously LOVE birthdays but i really love mine. ha! 
husband took the day off this year so that was extra nice but what was one of the best part 
was that andrew slept like a champ that night and so did i! 
if andrew sleeps through the night i still wake up because brandon's alarm for work wakes me up 
or i have to pee! ha but on my birthday morning i heard andrew and i looked at the time and it said 6:30! it took me a minute to realized i slept solid through the night! ha ha i have not slept that great since before andrew was born. it was glorious! ha 
we woke up and open some presents and then went to wheeler historic farm. 
dang zoo for being closed! 
later we came home and andrew napped and we watched a movie and then went to dinner!
it was a great birthday!!
some photos of the day below! 
^^andrew's birthday card to me.... goodness i'm keeping this forever!^^

^^running away from all the ducks!^^
^^feeding a cow is pure delight to andrew!^^

^^he was seriously LOVING it. it was the cutest!^^
^^we went to dinner at the oaks and it was a little chilly but it was beautiful there!^^

a photography class!

in july i took a 3 day photography class from the amazing jessica haderlie
you guys. it was amazing. like over the moon amazing. 
i really wish i could put into words how thankful i am i did the class! 
i had already done a photography class in feb of 2015 and it didn't even compare to jessica's! 
having a 3 day class was great! 
that way we weren't shoving everything into one day. 
jessica's class went over shooting in manual, understand exposure and lighting, 
editing and how to organize your photos and so much more! 
every time i left the class i felt so inspired. 
jessica is one of those people who i adore. i think highly of her and i'm so grateful i know her! 
she really is such a doll! 
you guys if you ever wanted to learn to use your camera in manual this class if for YOU. 
trust me you won't be disappointed. 
thank you so much jessica for everything!
