How we live and love and what we have to say about it, from Mommy Mumblings to Daddy Discourses
Stan and I first met in BYU's weight room. We've been married since Dec. of 2000. 11 years later we're still madly in love and so happy to have each other. We've earned 4 degrees: 2 BS's, 1 MS and 1 PhD. We've lived in UT, VA, MS, and now CA. We love rock climbing, yoga, exercising, reading, writing, making each other laugh, and our 4 beautiful children.
While Camping at Crystal Hot Springs Israel found this huge tree stump (new word he just learned) and had to climb it. I did help him a little but he did most of the work himself. When he was up there a sudden commotion came from the tree as a large bird flew out of the tree. Israel, not even phased looked at the hole the bird came out of and said there were eggs. Hence I passed the camera and he took this impressive photo. The eggs are about the size of the eggs you'd find in the grocery store- pretty big.
While Israel still had the camera he took probably over 20 pictures. This self-portrait is one of my favorites.
