New Blog

I will no longer be using this blog, as the title, "The 3 Bantas" is not very fitting. Who came up with that name in the first place! Honestly! Anyway, you can visit us now at www.bantajoys.blogspot.com Enjoy!

Cheyenne Frontier Days!

Last week, we enjoyed the Events at Cheyenne Frontier Days! Taysen and Milly loved all of the cowboys, cowgirls, horses, cows, and western stuff. Grandpa and Grandma Banta joined us for part of the week, and we had a great time.

Happy 4th of July!

We had a great 4th of July. We surprised my family and went to Star Valley for the 4 day weekend. My Dad turned 50 years old on the 2nd, so it was a great weekend to spend time with everyone and celebrate his birthday and the 4th of July. Taysen and Amilya were so excited of course when they found out the day we were leaving that we were going to Nana and Papa's for the weekend! They love visiting Nana and Papa, Jacob, Emily, Jaden, and Abby!
Taysen is obsessed with the farm! He follows Uncle Jaden around and helps him milk the cows, feed the cows, and this time, Taysen got to ride on the tractor! Amilya loves to play with Aunt Abby and play in the playhouse, and jump on the trampoline. They both love to ride the four-wheeler and ride horses!

Wow! It has been a long time since I have posted. Yes, I take pictures of my kids, Yes we always have something exciting going on, Yes, my kids say the cutest things, and Yes, I would love to post every week, but man does life get busy and the weeks fly by. We are all doing great, though. Tyler has one year of his Air Force enlistment left, thanks to the Lord for placing an awesome home business in our life, we are planning on getting out of the Air Force next spring. We are very excited about our life and our future. Enough about us, though. I am actually posting today for my brother! He is part of an amazing band in Utah, and they are trying to get voted in the top selection of music groups to play in the Stadium of Fire at BYU for the 4th of July, so I am asking you all to visit the website below and vote for Kindle Creek! Thank you! http://www.freedomfestival.org/events/stadium-of-fire-talent-search/

It's been a while!



I'm not very good at blogging, but when I do post a blog, it is always long overdue and I feel like a just accomplished something huge, so I am about to accomplish something huge.

Where do I begin? Summer was great, but then I topped it off by getting reconstructive surgery on my ankle and was off my feet for 4 weeks and in a walking boot for 3 weeks. Amidst all of this, Milly started preschool, and Taysen gets smarter and busier everyday. I recovered pretty quickly for the nature of the surgery, and now life is back to normal and we are enjoying beautiful Fall in Cheyenne, and looking forward to Christmas. I have so much to be grateful for in my life. I am amazed at the grace and mercy from my Heavenly Father as each experience in this life only makes me better and stronger. I am grateful for a wonderful Husband who works hard, is kind and loving, righteous, and patient. I am grateful for two beautiful children that make me smile each day and bring me so much joy. I am grateful for a beautiful home, health and strength, and the abundance of knowledge and blessings I am given.

Summer Fun So Far







I can't believe how fast this summer is going. This summer has been busy for us, seeing family and traveling. We went to Mount Rushmore with my family, spent the 4th of July weekend in Preston, Idaho with Tyler's family, lots of other things, and to top it off, the kids and I leave tomorrow to spend 3 weeks in Star Valley with my family. We are so excited, especially Amilya!

Happy Birthday Taysen!!




Taysen turned one year old this last week! It's amazing how fast time has gone by this year has gone by. Taysen has been walking since for 2 months now and is constantly on the go. He is so fun, though. His favorite things are going outside, taking everything out of drawers and cupboards, unraveling toilet paper, pulling hair, and playing with balls of all colors and sizes. He now says "Uh-Oh." It is so cute.
