BYU v. Utah - Miles' First BYU Game

Last weekend we took Miles to his first BYU football game,
and it just happened to be the BYU v. Utah rivalry game.
It really didn't feel like a rivalry game, but that's another topic for another day.

It was so fun to see how Miles reacted to the crowd and all of the noise.
The night was a good night to remember, too bad the game was LAME.
BYU lost the game, I forget the score...54 to something. It's not important.

Here's a little taste of little Miles' first night in Provo

The field-sized American Flag for the National Anthem. Pretty cool.

It got a little chilly... there is a baby in there

Miles with Megan right before kickoff.
He didn't like how the guy over my shoulder was looking at him, I guess.

Thanks to Aunt Kate for this great photo with the crew

The life on the mountainside

 There are many perks to living in a home on the mountain. A beautiful view, a great sledding hill in the winter time, and a front row seat to ALL of the firework shows shown across the valley. Alec and I love sitting on our balcony at night to watch the green aura the lighting makes after striking a transformer in the valley. One of our families favorite past times is turning out all of the lights in our home on a cold winter night and watch all of the cars sliding sideways down our snowy steep hill. However, it's not so fun when the tables turn and YOUR car is the car sliding down the hill playing bumper pool with all of the other cars! While I have loved my "home sweet home," lets face it, sometimes it aint so "sweet."
While its cool to see a moose walking down the middle of your street like its a fashion runway, it's not so cool knowing that it can charge you at any moment. While I love the 5-8 deer we have prancing around in our backyard all of the time, its not so fun to look up from your television show to see that the deer is staring into the window at you and into your soul. Scary! Oh and I also Love seeing and
stepping in all of the "evidence" the deer leave behind. I love waking
up in the middle of the night to the racoons fighting just outside my window. I love hearing that my cousin (who lives right down the street from us) has a mountain lion in their yard, or the fact that she stepped on a snake and a rat. I soooo love opening the front or back door at night to let my dog out just knowing that there is something creepy lurking out there. Once it was a snake, and just the other day it was a bat. Yikes! And not kidding, last week it was a tarantula! Yuck! What is going on here people?! I love that I am a girl and I don't have to do the brave stuff like checking scary noises, or collecting spiders around the house with a vacuum or toilet paper.  And I sooo love that I wasn't the one outside with a broomstick drop kicking the tarantula across our yard and off into the drop off. Thanks Alec! The highlight however was seeing your hee-bee-geebie dance. Haha

Join Alec

I found this website the other day, and it kinda freaked me out.
We don't endorse any political anything at all ever on this blog thanks.

Now that you've all become familiar with the American Legislative Exchange Council and know where to send your "donations" - here are some pictures of Miles from the past couple of months since we've received several complaints that nobody knows what he looks like anymore.

First day of church

After his first day of church
Just kidding! Just a random yawn

Miles love his sling time with Megan

His paranoid look

A nurse in the hospital gave us the idea of taking
his picture once a week with an object, and to use the same
object every time.
Someday we'll post the whole group of them from a few months or so.

Listening intently to his mother

The happy family on Miles' blessing day

Don't forget to Join ALEC!
Whatever that is?
