Random Picts...

Here are some fun and random pictures from the past little while. Scarlett is getting so big and we just love her so much. She has the sweetest personality and is so smart!

This is one of her favorite things to do...crawl into laundry baskets...pull everything out...and crawl away!
Our sweet thing on the 24th of July...
This is what our summer has been...pool days! I just love taking her to the pool.
This was so funny...Scarlett was being quite so I walked around the corner and she was full on licking the lid of the Oreo ice cream carton!She was lovin it!
She was not happy when I took it away!
This is Scarlett and one of our good friends Chevy. He played basketball with Mike at Dixie College. (Look how long those legs are!)
Chevy is beautiful! He is from Brazil so him and Mike have a lot in common! Mike was basically his translator the first year he was here! Scarlett loves him!

I am finally getting to putting up pictures of our girls trip! We had SO MUCH FUN! It was the best weekend ever! We shopped, talked, ate, talked, shopped, fun! I seriously can't remember the last time I laughed so hard it hurt....or the last time I stayed up until like 5:30 in the morning:) It was great to see everyone again and see that really not much has changed..we're all still crazy! And to say the least, I feel SOOOO thankful to have such amazing friends! I just love these girls!

Outside of Notre Dame Cathedral. It was so amazing. I can't imagine the time that it took to build this. The artwork is so intricate and just stunning. Pictures don't do justice.
While we were outside of Notre Dame, a choir of college age boys were singing was so cool and made the experience so fun!
Mike outside Notre Dame...
Our FAVORITE thing to do...walk along the bridges of Paris in front of the Eiffel dusk came...
while watching the Eiffel Tower light up...
Paris...where do I even begin? When Mike flew into Frankfurt, I picked him up from the airport and we drove to Paris. It was about a 5 hour drive from Frankfurt. Miranda, Ian and Eli stayed home to get ready for their big move back to the USA. They were so kind to let us borrow their car...and more importantly their GPS! Paris was everything I expected. I definitely could have stayed another week there but we did accomplish a lot in the 3 days we were there. My friend Amber who did a study abroad in Paris compiled a list of things I needed to do, how to get there, what to see while there...etc... The list helped us tremendously! We saw so much! And just FYI...we found that French to be extremely kind people! Here's PARIS...

As you can see, Scarlett really enjoyed Paris! :) This happened in every city! This was after a long day in the Louvre...
This is how all the buildings are...
Yep...some Michelangelo...
Recognize this???
The Nike of Samothrace Winged Victory was the most incredible piece of art I have ever seen in my lifetime. It was seriously breathe taking! I could have stared at it for an hour-seriously!

Yep...Scarlett and THE Mona Lisa! It was tiny! So much smaller than what I thought. It was cool to see...but still nothing compared to...
Nope...Scarlett wasn't asleep. She just loved the Arch. jk. She was just sick of picts! Can you blame her?
