It's a BOY!!!

Yes, it is a Boy! Our new German Short haired pointer! Kaiser! He is so much fun. As of today he is 12 weeks old. We got him on July 30, 2008. He was 8 weeks ol at the time. It is so funny because even though we have only had him for four weeks he has gotten a lot bigger. This picture to the right was right after we got him!

Here is Kaiser slepping! On the floor at our house. Thankfully we didn't find him chewing Mike's shoes he soon discovered that a few weeks later!

Kaiser and I at the park! This is my favorite picture of him! His tounge is so long! ha ha lol
Kaiser again! Posing for the camera

Mike and Kaiser sleeping on Sunday before church. And, no we do not let him sleep in our bed with us. Even though it looks like it in the picture. He is only allowed on the couch or bed by invetation. He is doing pretty well with understanding invite only rule.

Family Reunion!

Michael and I in Utah! This picture is actually on the way
home. My father in-law Kris was really sweet and stopped
so I could get a picture of the river. I think I easily took over
100 pictures on our trip. : )

Yes, it is offical Eric and my amazing sister in-law Rachael are ENGAGED!!!

So, I think all of the Horn's would have to agree with me that this is the best picture of the whole trip. We were all hanging out in Grandma and Grampa Burton's backyard Sunday afternoon. When Eric (the soon to be brother in-law) was sitting on the grass with his legs crossed with a piece of the grass sticking out of his mouth. When my adorable niece Chealsea picked a piece of grass stuck it in her mouth and sat just like Eric on the grass. It was so cute. She imitated him for at least 10 minutes it was great! Michael and I adore our nieces Chealsea and Aubriana.

Michael and I at Rachael's Birthday party!

Aubriana and Chealsea looking at the flowers after we were all done eating! They are so cute!

Burton Family Reunion

Mike and Chealsea hanging out on Grampa Burton's hammock!

Michael and I at the top of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saint's headquaters. We had such a fun time. It was really neat to look over the Salt Lake valley and find different landmarks and buildings we knew of!

We had the opporrunity of meeting Eric's wonderful family in the middle of the week before we headed up to Bear Lake. His parents home is absolutly gorgeous. they live on the mountain in Salt Lake and their home is shaded by tons of beautiful trees, shrubs, and is surrounded by lush green grass. The neatest thing about their home is Eric's dad designed it himself and his mothers art work just lights up the home. We had a really nice time and Eric and Rachael prepared a delicious meal.

Wyoming??? Yeah that is what we said! Well, during the reunion we had a competition called the amazing race. So, our cousin's and Michael and I decided to load up in Aunt Eva's car and drive to all the designated destinations. Well, we were in the lead until we took the wrong Junction 89 and ended up in Wyoming. It was pretty funny actually we were so sure that "Tom Tom" (Mike and I's handy GPS?) was right. But, come to find out Andy our cousing was smarter than the Tom Tom he origionally told us to go the opposite direction and we all choose to listen to a GPS! It was worth the detour. Now we can all say we have been to Wyoming! And, in the process we were able to dodge 3 crazy squirells that ran across the highway!
Aubriana, Aunt Erin, Chealsea!
