Glacier National Park

 Other then the fact that we are pumpkin orange this was the beginning of our Glacier National Park trip!  This was the beautiful drive on Going-to-the-Sun-Road.

 Our first stop on the trip was Logan Pass where we got to see Goats, coyotes, Marmots, even a grizzly bear way far up the mountain.  In fact, the only animals we didn't get to see on the trip were Moose(although we heard them), and Mountain goats.

Baby Henly's very first hike. 6 weeks old and he slept for most of the trip, just what we were hoping he would do, little angel.

Here we see Spencer and Henly Fitting in with the other tourists.

Then we headed on over to Many Glacier Region.  This is the first area we explored while looking for moose and bears, I swear every person we passed got to see the animals but we missed them by a hair

 This is the trail to Glacier Lake...Absolutely Stunning Hike.

This is on the way back, we did get to see a bear.  It was about twenty feet away from us, just off the trail and we would have gotten a picture of it but sadly our survival instincts were stronger and we just sped by as quickly as possible, I will always remember it in my mind though.  To bad you can't see into my mind.

We had a game to see how many Subaru Outbacks we could spot, 
and let me tell you about half of the cars occupying Montana
 are Subaru Outbacks.

This is the beautiful Red Rock/Mosquito Infestation Lake, 
it really was beautiful though.

Grinnell Lake, this is where we heard some moose calls, but didn't see any moose:(.

a chunky squirrel we found at Grinnell

Baby Brown

After my 34 hour labor getting kick started by food poisoning from kneaders, I headed to the provo hospital to deliver our little Henly.  When I arrived I was 3 1/2 centimeters dilated, and having crazy painful contractions, after an hour or so I gave in for an epidural so I could maybe rest a little before having to push, but for the next three hours I jumped a centimeter an hour, after hitting six and a half centimeters it only took and hour and I was ready to push, I pushed for 18 minutes and got to watch in the mirror when little Henly's head was crowning, what a neat experience!  
Baby Henly Lewis Brown Was Born June 4, 2014 @ 7:30pm
He was 7 lbs 1 oz & 19 1/2 inches
We were so excited when we heard the nurse say he has lots of hair!

Baby Shower #2

After moving back to Utah only a few days before I had my second baby shower.  This one had a  s'mores theme and we roasted all kinds of yummy s'mores over the fire.  I had my friends and family from Utah come over and we played games like what was mommy wearing and baby breaking the water.  I haven't seen these people for around a year and it was fun to get together with everyone again before I became a mommy, just a few days later!
me and brandi comparing bellies, she is only a few months behind me:)

Baby shower #1

My sweet boss and co-worker threw me a wonderful baby shower on May 10 in San Marcos.  
The theme was whales!  We played games, ate some yummy lunch, and I opened presents, 
many of which had whales on them!  It was so fun and and I got to enjoy the day
 with all of my California friends and family.

Gender Reveal Party!

It's a boy!

What a fun day!  We had a great turnout, there was snacks and cupcakes for everyone, and most surprisingly we had enough balloons for everyone!
Laura and me, she is almost due!

The 3 little 6 month olds.

Everyone got their own balloon to pop and see what the gender would be!
