We were both born and raised in Utah, and love the country way of life. Though we love living in a smaller community, we are still right by the city. We are lucky to have all of our family close by.
We met 7 years ago when Brittany was teaching 2nd grade at a school in Ty's hometown. We were introduced not long after her starting there and we started dating right away, instantly becoming the best of friends. After six months of dating we were engaged, and a few months later, on June 23, 2011, we were married. We are lucky to both come from families that we have very strong relationships with, and we are excited to add a child to ours!
Family is something that is very important to us. It truly is one of life's greatest blessings. We pray each and every day for the day to come that we get to welcome a precious child into our home. We promise that we will love our little one with everything we've got.
THINGS THAT WE LOVE
It really doesn't matter what we do, as long as we get to do it together. Some of these things include:
-Spending time in the mountains, whether it's a camping trip with family, friends, or just each other, or going to our favorite ma and pa hamburger shop and coming back over the mountains to look for wildlife.
-We love to go golfing, even though we are both just learning.
-We love riding the horses.
-We love rodeos, amusement parks with the family, swimming, sporting events, fishing, and going for snow cones or milkshakes.
-We love to take walks or go for bike rides on our town trail that follows the river.
-We love getting together with our family and playing games, or just hanging out.
-One of our favorite Friday night date nights is to just get take-out, get in our comfy's, and watch Dateline.
-We love barbecuing and are both suckers for a good steak, baked potato, and grilled corn on the cob.
-We love to travel and see new places.
We could go on and on about the things we love to do, but every time we are out and about we always say, "We can't wait to share these experiences with our children." One thing we know for sure is that even though we love to do these things, and many others together, we can't wait until we have a little one, or little ones, to join us and love all the things that we love to do!
We love the place that we live! We live in a cute, three bedroom home, with a spacious front and back yard that provides plenty of room to play and run around. We live in an area in Utah that gives you a small town feel, but has the convenience of everything close by. We live in a quaint little community, and love being a part of it. We have great neighbors, and live around lots of children. We are close to great schools, a lot of fun parks, and a beautiful walking trail. We are also so lucky to live close to a lot of family!

Brittany will be the absolute best mother! There is nothing else she desires more than to be called Mom. There are many traditions such as going camping, attending rodeos, and family parties that Brittany longs to share with her future children. I can't wait to see her shine in this role!
Brittany is the most thoughtful and selfless person. She is always so willing to serve everyone around her without hesitation. She goes above and beyond to make sure that everyone else's needs are met. Without a doubt, her children and their needs will always be placed above her own.
Brittany is patient. As a special education teacher, she exemplifies great patience when working with her students. She believes in all her students and knows how to bring out the best in them. She has changed many lives for the better because of her patience. I know that her quality of patience will be shown towards her children as she teaches them and helps them become successful in their own lives.
Brittany is a beacon of Christ-like love. She cares deeply for her friends and family. She develops loving relationships with each of them. Brittany is a great example of faith when life's challenges occur, and she always strives to find the positive in life. I know that she will share her love and faith in Christ with our children.

Ty will be the best dad! He will love our kids and support them in all that they do. Ty grew up in a small town, and is all boy. I often joke that I fear the day when our children follow in their daddy's footstep. I have heard many stories of him breaking out windows with an accidental rock or what not, and causing innocent mischief as a young boy. But really, I dream of the day when we have little ones to follow in their dad's footsteps. He will be someone they look up to and admire, and will love, teach, and protect them. He is a wonderful man, who is willing to serve anyone.
Ty is very active and loves everything outdoors as well as just about any sport. His biggest passion is his horses. He loves to ride and rope, and takes any opportunity to do so, and it is something that I love to watch him do. If Ty's not in the arena, you are sure to find him up the mountains camping, hunting, or on a trail ride.
Ty teaches elementary school, and is good at what he does. He is loved by everyone he has ever met. I know he makes an impact on those he is around. He is currently working on his Masters in Education Administration so that he can provide better opportunities for our family. He is a hard worker.
One of my most favorite things about Ty is that he has a strong faith in God and puts his faith and our family first. He is solid in his faith in God. He lives a Christ-like life and is a great example to those around him. There is no one I would rather be on this so called journey of life with.
FAVORITE PLACE: The mountains
CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT: His horses & a rope
BEST DAY: Spending time in the mountains with his wife and family
