Rylee has turned into such a fish this summer!
She likes to refer to herself as being a

This is Rylee's 26th month
straight of swimming lessons and all the work and time
has really paid off. She is currently working
really hard on mastering the butterfly
stroke (mermaid or dolphin)
She has the motion and breathing just needs
to add in the arms.
Rylee is doing a fantastic job at the
freestyle stroke
She can also do the breaststroke while floating
on her back.

Its so fun and rewarding to see her improvement.
she is such a show off;)
Next year she is hoping to be apart of the
swim team and compete with other 5 year olds

Grandma Walkers 80th b-day celebration!

Last week we packed up and
went to St. George to celebrate
with the whole Walker family
Grandma's 80th Birthday!!!
It was such a fun weekend filled
with family, food, and a day in
Pioche, NV on the family ranch.

These pictures are all about our day in Pioche.
Grandma had so much fun taking us
all over town. We went to the museum,
the million dollar courthouse,
the house my dad grew up in...

We definitely doubled the population of little

This is main street...
this is just about all you see here;)

After exploring the town we went down to the
"ranch" and had a big lunch, went to the one room schoolhouse,
played, fed the horses, and BEST of all went to see
Grandpa Walker's grave. I have only been able to go back once
so this was really special for me.
Can't wait until grandma's 90th Birthday
so we can all get together and celebrate like this again!
