So for now I don't have any pictures. The internet connection here is terrible and I just don't have the time to sit and update this thing! Overall we are having fun and we have realized how much we do miss this place! We have spent a lot of our time with our family and friends! Anyway, I will post pictures and more detailed information when we get home :)

Fun things in Life!

So here's an update of what has been going on in our lives! Brady and I are still crazy busy with homework...or I should say the homework that we SHOULD be doing :)

Poor Brady is always exhausted after work and he tries his hardest to do his homework...but sometimes it ends up like this! He's so cute!

So the Rexburg weather has been a bit depressing lately. Every once in awhile something beautiful will come out of a terrible day...take a look at this!

These rainbows were AMAZING! There were two of them, you can kind of see the second one to the left of the landscape picture. These rainbows also had the other end to them. The colors were amazing and the pictures don't show them very well. Overall, we were in awe over these rainbows!!

Another thing that's going on in our lives is BYU Idaho's Married Student Garden. I have attended one Saturday morning to help prepare the garden to plant. The deal is whoever helps with the garden will get free produce! We have a 1 acre piece of land to plant so there's a bunch of hard work involved! We also have the opportunity to attend seminars that teach the importance of different things in a garden! I am so excited to be apart of this experience. Here are some pictures!

We also had the chance to go bowling with a group of our friends! Brady and I did the worst out of everyone...I've actually never seen Brady do so bad. Oh well, it was still a lot of fun! There was a DJ that had everyone do silly things to win free stuff!

Another exciting thing is that Michael and Tia Saxton had their baby boy on June 9th!! He's such an adorable little guy! Everett (not sure on spelling) weighed 9 pounds 2 oz when he was born, measuring 20.5 inches long! Can you believe Tia went all natural?? Crazy woman!!

So that's all the exciting news in our lives!! Next up - MICHIGAN!!!

Ellis Update!

Yesterday was our 2 year WeDDiNg AnnIvErSArY!! We didn't do much since we both had so much homework to do...but we did go to Hard Hat for dinner (we had never been there before and we're not sure if we'll ever go back). Also, for Mother's Day, Brady got me a HUGE picture of Prairie Angels by Leon Parsons. My anniversary gift is to get it framed. We ended up not finding a frame that we liked so it'll be awhile before we finally get it framed. We also watched our wedding video and had fun watching our reactions to things that day.

Other than our wedding anniversary, we have been extremely busy. I would say the most busy we have been since we've been married. I have class 5 days a week and open labs 2 nights a week, tutoring atleast 1 day a week, quizzes and exams, papers, projects...everything is SO exhausting. Brady works full time, soccer 3-4 days a week (both games and practices), homework every day and exams. We are having a hard time managing our time and wanting a break. Our home is being neglected and we miss hanging out with our friends. We are so EXCITED for this semester to be over!

Saturday was Kayla's 20th Birthday!! We went to Brady's parents to celebrate on Sunday. Here are some pictures of Gabe!!
We also went to Salt Lake two weekends ago to see the newest addition to the family!! Eva Elizabeth Bleazard! She was born in the morning of May 8th. She weighed 7 lbs. 3 oz. and measured 21 inches long! She is AdORaBlE!!!
So that's all for now! Our upcoming events will be our trip to Michigan in 2 weeks, Father's Day, Tagg's Wedding, and Eva's blessing! So much to look forward to :)
