We love weddings! Drinks all around!

Darrell's sister, Janae, got married this week, and it was a beautiful day! Her husband, Nate, is a great guy, and it was just so much fun to be able to be in the temple with them, and enjoy the day with family!!
Here is the happy bride and groom with all of the Cropper Grandchildren! Our latest attempt at a family photo!! We love it...:) It was very windy at the temple! Jake and Emily getting as close to the water as they could, without playing in it:) Kaleb, after getting caught. I am working on my photography skills....Steven seemed to cooperate somewhat! :) Being so cute in front of the waterfalls Looking cute and curious! This one is my favorite ever! Steven was playing Pat-a-Cake, and just being so darn cute. And who cares if his shirt and tie are too big! This is him in the process of throwing his pat-a-cake into the air. I love taking different perspective shots of wedding cakes....
The happy bride and groom The lovely bridesmaids and flowergirls. :) Emily and Steven havin' some fun! By the end of the night, we were a little bit tired..and crazy....(When aren't we??)

Time for Steven to be tagged!!

I'm excited that Colton tagged Steven. Seeing as he is the center of ours lives. :) and he is sure cute
Some things you may or may not know about lil Steven:
1. His favorite show is "Music and the Spoken Word" with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. It's true it's one of the only things I let him watch, but he absolutely loves it!
2. A lot of times when we ask Steven a question,
he gets a big grin on his face and starts to shake his head vigorously.
3. He absolutely loves books! He will sit on our laps in Sacrament Meeting, and open and close the hymn book for quite a while.
4. He is very ticklish on his neck and armpits. He has the cutest little giggle!
5. He moves all over the room by rolling. He's fast, and sneaky!
6. He absolutely loves seeing pictures of himself. He will smile and wave any time he sees them.
7. His favorite book is his scrapbook, because it's full of pictures of himself.
8. He loves to dance when his dad plays the piano
9. After his nap, he peeks under the bumper pad to see if he can find me.
10. He's basically the cutest thing ever, and we absolutely love him!
Now Steven tags Cambree and Makenzie...I can't think of any more

Cake face

Sunday we went to dinner in Nephi at my brother, Greg's, house. Since Jay's birthday is today (Monday) he got to blow out a candle. His blowing out the candle face was adorable!

Take Me Out to the Ballgame

Our awesome neighbors, Ryan and Kara, invited us to go to a Bees game with them on Saturday. It was so much fun! I'd never been to a baseball game, and I got to fulfill my dream of eating a hot dog at a baseball game. Now, to eat a hot dog in Fenway Park....:)Steven riding on Dads shoulders Hanging out on the lawn Ryan and Kara having fun in the sun! Darrell and Ryan with their "hats" (they almost got to a home run ball with those mitts!) Since the first time he's seen her, Steven has absolutely LOVED Kara. He always ditches me for her at ward softball games. Ah, fer tender I got a pedicure with my sis-in-laws and mom-in-law on Saturday....here are my pretty toes! Steven and the mitt Yay we won!

to scoot or to roll?

Steven is starting to figure out how to scoot. His main method of transportation lately has been to roll, but he's been having some fun! video

Tagerooni of Threes!

I got this tag from Jamie
So I get to list three joys, three fears, three goals, three current obsessions or collections and three surprising facts about myself. Then I get to tag five of you!
Joys
#1 - Getting lost in a book
#2 - Sleeping In
#3 - Laughing with friends
Fears
#1 - Someone breaking into our apartment
#2 - Needles
#3 - Teaching Sunday School. (hooray for my new calling...)
Goals
#1 - Keep off the weight I've lost this year
#2 - Finish School
#3 - Make Lehi feel like home!
Current Obsessions
#1 - Scrapbooking
#2 - Teaching my son how to say "mama"
#3 - Kickboxing every morning
Surprising Facts
#1 - I have a scar on my left foot that looks like a spider. I've had it since my senior year of high school when I had a stick cut out of my foot.
#2 - I feel like the heat is more unbearable this summer than last summer when I was in my third trimester of my pregnancy with Steven.
#3 - I still have a ticket stub from Peter Pan on Ice from 1991
I'm not going to tag anyone, since it took me literally over 10 minutes to figure out stuff for this. So....if you have not been tagged yet, tag, you're it!

Happy Fathers Day Darrell!

Steven had fun helping Darrell open his card and presents.
Here he is checking out Mr. Incredible on Daddy's card. Playing with the wrapping paper. Dad's awesome new orange polo shirt! Yay for bows to demolish!

Hanging with the cute kid!

I left the room the other day, and came back to see Steven had rolled across the floor and was trying to type, just like he sees me doing :) Steven's cute new hat for the summer time. Complimented by the cheerio on his chin. Steven's favorite book is his scrapbook. He loves pictures of himself! Our new trick: Shoving the whole rattle end in our mouth. I gave Steven another hair cut on Saturday...thought I'd have some fun afterwards.

Steven's New Car

I finally found something to help Steven stand up without my help. Ah man, it's great! I love the D.I. what can I say more! Steven loves this car so much. It even has rearview mirrors, which he admires himself in all the time!

Our Apartment!

I would like to thank Spitty for this idea! Here is our home! :) video
