Our Style

Welcome. We are Mike and Kim Simmons. We have 2 adorable children that rule our home, and we're ok with that.

Remember when...

Remember when I used to blog and then I stopped for a year and then decided I was going to do it again?
That was a funny joke, huh?
It's been 10 days why of 2 years since my last post. I have a daughter now. She's adorable. She's almost a full year. Jeremy is 3, almost 4 and starts Pre-K next week. Whoa, right?!
I'm a photographer now. People are actually paying me to take their pictures, it's kind of super, actually!
I took big family photos of my family and Mike's family. What a great looking bunch of people we are, don't you agree?!

Jer had a date.

Jer is just 12 days shy of being two and this week he had an official play-date with his girlfriend Reese. These two have had eyes for each other since the day the met at church over a year ago. Reese is just a month younger than her main squeeze, Jet, and she may have him wrapped around her little finger by next week in nursery.

Just look at the two of them, can you blame them for being so smitten with each other? Their babies will  be beautiful.

Our little family is growing....Up!

Let's pretend it's Friday and call this flash back Friday, or I guess we could call it Slippin' back Saturday? We'll see! Anyway, we got family pictures done with the Simmons clan in July, we also got family pictures taken with just our little family last September when Jer turned 1 (oh yea he's almost 2 now so I will need to do a flash back birthday post...noted.)
Moving on, because we have 3 family pictures roughly 2 years apart I thought it would be fun to post them so we can all see how our little family, err...Jer, is growing up! It really does blow my mind. It's like he's 5 now. But not really. He doesn't know about Santa yet. 

Here is a picture from the day we blessed him! 
(look how young Mikey looks...so crazy! He's growing up too! I was just post pregnancy "swollen"!)

Then we have last year when Jer turned one, he wasn't even walking!
(He didn't walk until he was almost 16 months)

{Oh my dear heavens I love my boys!!}

And now we have this little monkey that RUNS everywhere and let's be real, he runs the show. 

Seriously, could he look any sweeter?

  His face kills me ^ such a nut...

I really married into a great family!

Flash Back Friday

Flash back Friday is going to be fun for me, especially posts like this one about Jer. Seeing how much he has grown over this last year is so exciting, yet also kind of sad at the same time! While serving as the Laurel Adviser in the YW we took the girls on a hike up to Cecret Lake. Jer did awesome, he just hung around on my back!
                                               Look at Jer's little smile with only about 4-6 teeth!
                                                     {let's ignore how completely unattractive I was last summer}


                                                    Jer with no hair! (or at least not much!)

Not a great shot of the lake itself but there we were!

                       If you look close enough you can see the start of Jer's little curls just above his ears!

Wolf Creek and Jackson Fork Inn

The weekend after the 4th of July we ventured up North and a tad East over through Ogden Canyon to Pineview Reservoir. This was our Simmons Family Vacation! Half of us stayed at the Wolf Creek Worldmark condos and half of us stayed at this charming old barn known as the Jackson Fork Inn. Mike and I were part of the Jackson Fork Inn...since we found it! It's older but it has a sweet charm and the people were so warm and welcoming. They even have a sweet dog to greet you, Lady Blue. Wish we snapped a picture of her!

The whole Simmons gang made it up but I only got pictures of our little family. No worries, we did family pictures a week later that I will get around to posting some other day :-)

We enjoyed quality time with our family playing catch, chasing the kiddos, swimming, and rolling down grassy hills and one little flash hail storm! {What's a family vacay without a little storm, eh?}

Our stay was just for the weekend but we had a nice time. Pineview Reservoir is absolutely beautiful and I would love waking up to those views each morning. Some day we'll go back! Jer loves the water and so did we.

                                                                See what I mean?
                                      Our attempt at a family picture {the "good" one is in the last post}

                                             Such posers...I'm thankful he puts up with me

                                                                       The End.

Back from Break

Well that was a nice break, don't you think? I went one full year without blogging. Truth be told I can't say I really missed all that much, however I don't want to have regrets and I feel that this is my best way to journal my life. While life is a fairly open book via Facebook, I don't exactly keep a journal full of memories that I can later print off in a book form. I did that for the first 2 years. So while most of my pictures and daily/weekly thoughts might show up on Facebook, I will also start posting and back-posting, spectacular events worth having in a book one day. Like when I get my hair done. Joking. Or maybe not! I'm considering doing a Flash Back Friday type of post to help me do my back pedaling. Feel free to follow us again here and leave comments if you so feel the desire but I'm mostly doing this for journal purposes, in case I didn't make that point! :@)

So hold on tight all your blog stalkers....the Simmons are back...

I have a private one with just videos of Jer for fam and anyone that might want the link, but that's all it will be soooo thanks for reading our blog over the years, it's just time to call it quits! I will still be checking all of yours though :)
