From Adventure Book

to infinity & beyond

Sorry that this post is far delayed, but better late than never 😉   When we got up to Payson, back in May, (click here for our little weekend recap), we discovered this cute cabin next door that looked like it was made of LINCOLN LOGS. It immediately made me think of Toy Story! Then…

swge celebration at home

Happy Opening Day, Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge!! Unfortunately, we aren’t at Disneyland today so we are celebrating at home. We read our favorite Star Wars books & played with some letters. (peep the tiny hand for this behind the scenes shot!) Probably going to teach Watson what Chewie says & act like we are partying…

weekend adventures in the mountains

  PAYSON, ARIZONA   It is always tough coming back home after a weekend adventure, but we LOVED our time in the mountains this last weekend!   We were going to go up on Friday, but it got later & later so we decided to head out early Saturday instead. I am so glad we did!…

our wild child – Watson’s birthday day

Being our wild child, we spent Watson’s birthday at the ZOO! Last year, we spent it at Disneyland (flashback here) & we decided to upkeep the tradition of experiences over presents. Watson has shown a lot of interest in animals lately… although Wats & I went to the zoo with a friend a little while back,…

may the fourth – star wars day!

HAPPY MAY THE FOURTH! I love Star Wars & love that my family puts up with all the geeking out that this day involves. Chad always made Watson “Yoda” when he was a tiny baby so, he tried to do it again today, but Wats is a little too big now! The jest of how…

hip hop – easter 2019

Easter is always amazing. Focusing on Christ, family, & fun times is my jam!! This year, we were lucky to have separate days for each side of the family (PRAISES!!). So, Saturday we had the Ruettinger side. We ended up egg hunting & eating Brazillian chocolates while chit chatting. Watson refers to anything sweet as…

Disneyland!!!

We got home from Utah & we were ready to head off to our next adventure! Food poisoning delayed us a couple days, but we headed out (later than scheduled) and we made it to sunny California! This was Watson’s birthday trip. We had it planned for so long because we knew we wanted to…

Temple Square & Heading Home – Utah Day Three

Hi friends! We come to day three of our Utah adventures. To be honest, we spent the majority of the day relaxing or driving so this is not a picture overload post. We were able to go to church, but it started at one. Our normal church time is 8 am so we were happy…

Utah – Day One

Hiiii Friends! The last seven days has been an ADVENTURE to say the least!! Several weeks ago after planning our California trip, my brother came to my family and asked if we all would like to go to Utah for his daughter’s baptism. UHHH YESSS!!!  It was a total blast. I try to convince Chad…
