Daily bike rides with Levi. I called him my "biking buddy" and we would bike around the big block for his exercise (one of his daily chores). I got to do this with him almost every morning of the summer.
Being able to share the beautiful sight of Crater Lake with my family.
Watching Spencer swim against 17 and 18 year old boys who looked like grown men and NOT being one bit afraid. His coach thought because he swam with the older group that he must be 12 so she signed him up to swim in the relays with boys 12-18. He is one brave boy!!
Watching a baseball game with my family, my mom, my sister and her girls and watching Sophie and Andrew do silly things to try to win a prize.
Having Andrew receive TWO awards at work because his is such a hard worker!!

Absolutely loving everything that Nathan did to make our home even more beautiful! I'm so in love with our house (and him)!!
Being a part of the Smith Family Reunion. I love being with these amazing, wonderful and fun family members!!
