Where to start.. Tayven thrives on the chase, he is outgoing and usually can be found in things he should not be in. As crazy as this little guy is I actually love that he keeps us on our toes and mostly that he and Brax are so different. The other night we were up the canyon after a couple rain storms and Tayven found what he likes to call Chocate Water...It was so fun to watch him charge through the mud puddles with a grin on his face. It was all i could do to get him to the next puddle so we could keep moving..It was not until we were about ready to go that Brax decided maybe it looked a little fun. Brax asked if he could try it and he proceeded to tiptoe in with caution. (I loved it!) this small experience showed a tee both of their personalities. Tay a little more adventurous and Brax cautious and putting thought into each adventure.

Tayven's talking is so fun and makes me remember how fun his age is. Although love you mommy is probably my favorite, he can  not help but pick up the naughty words like stupid mommy...(this morning when I was singing to him.) He also is 100% if not more boy.. Shooting bears, Motorcycles and dirt are among many of the boy things that he loves!! He is really easy going and good at sharing. I am happy this wild yet sweet boy is a part of our family. We love and enjoy him very much.


It is crazy to think that I have a three and half year old. Especially because at times I feel like I have a teenager already! Braxton is so funny he likes being big, he is really smart and kind of sassy. Honestly I would say Brax is most like me..including some of my weaknesses, which can make him hard to reason with. He also keeps us laughing with some of the stuff that he comes up with. Some of the most recent things that I can think of are: One night we were at dinner and Brax needed to go potty. Ryan took him in the bathroom and held him up to his first urinal. Brax thought that this was pretty cool and said "Wow Dad, look at me go!" Ryan was not sure what to say but we had a good laugh about it later. Brax is a big movie guy. I love that I get to finally see movies like Star Wars and Transformers. He has such a big imagination and even in our night prayers we can not forget to mention we are thankful for the universe, aliens and bats?? Sometimes I wish I knew what went on in his little mind.

Braxton is about to embark on one of his biggest adventures yet: Preschool! It is funny how so many mixed emotions can go into it. I hope that he learns alot and that he enjoys learning. Mom is feeling stressed, excited and also a little like keeping him here in our home with me :) I am so proud of my handsome, smart little boy.

The Summerset's Maiden Voyage

 So we bought us our first campin' trailer! I could not be more excited.. It has been hard tenting our camping trips or flat our not going with the boys. We took it on our first adventure to Arizonia. It was a lot of fun and as you can see the boys are in heaven! Dirt, Food and more Dirt! Looking forward to many more summers in the mountains.
