Meet Marlee...

 Meet my newest niece, Marlee Tenney.  She was born on August 19th.  She is absolutely beautiful and a perfect piece of Heaven.  Congrats to Ben and guys do good work!!(I think you should have at least 5 more:)

 I love this one cause she looking at know she's thinking 'there is that crazy aunt I was warned about!'

Quick California Trip...

 I was invited over to California to do some wedding photography for a cousins son's wedding. I knew Maron would be going with me since she was the only one not in school full I got this wild hair and decided to invite Maron's two BFF's to come along.  We had SOOOO much fun!!

On the way there I told the girls our first stop was at a castle made for special princesses.    I had a cousin getting sealed that day in the Sad Diego Temple and my mom wanted to go to it so we dropped her off at the amazing castle.  The girls had a great time walking around it and taking pictures.  It was perfect because we got to see two princesses that had just gotten married in this beautiful castle.  The girls were in heaven!!

While in California we got to go take beach wedding shots of Jordan and Danielle.  They were so good to these girls...making them feel special for being there.  They especially loved Princess Danielle.
They loved playing on the beach

I loved spending time with my beautiful cousin, Sara aka Seb

While my mom spent time with her sister, my aunt Donna, I got to spend extra time with the 3 princesses.  We had so much fun going shopping, to a movie, swimming, and hanging out!!
They loved being at the reception and they loved to hear 'Aunt Sara' sing like a princess.

This was the morning we had to leave to come home and none of the girls wanted to leave.  They wanted to stay in California forever!!:)

Jace & Mary get hitched...

 The week after the Porter reunion me, my mom, and our 4 girls drove back up to Utah to Jace and Mary's wedding.  We left on  Monday afternoon and got to Provo about midnight, went to their wedding at 9:30 the next morning, and headed home.  We would have stayed for another day and gone to the reception but Grandma Sue had passed away and it was the first day of school so I felt like we needed to get home.  Their sealing was amazing and it was great to see the Johnson family.  We couldn't be happier for these two!! Thanks Jace and Mary for letting us be a part of your wonderful day!! We love you both!

 I Love the look on their faces!!
 My Maron was in Heaven!
 Princess Mary was so good to these girls...letting them follow her around holding her dress.
We loved being there!!!

Family Vaca + Porter Reunion = Lots of fun!

 This year we decided to spend our Family Vacation in St. Goerge, Utah in conjunction with the Porter Reunion.  Mom and Dad Martineau came and spent 3+ days with us at our timeshare and then we changed resorts and spent another 3 days at the Porter Reunion.  We had a lot of fun and it was well worth the chaos and the heat!!

 Chillin at the pool...we love swimming!!
Grandma and Grandpa Martineau watched the younger kids while we took our oldest 5 to do baptisms at the St. George Temple.  I love being able to take our kids to the temple!!

The Porter Reunion was put on by the Jack & Val Porter family.  They did a fabulous job and it was great getting to see everybody!!
