Lyla is always escaping. If I am not paying attention she will go out the front door and down the street to either see our neighbors cat Tiger or a dog named Fender. They are her best friends and she wants to hold them like a stuff animal. She is the only one in our family that likes animals. She is very independent and loves to explore things on her own. This picture is at Bear Lake this summer. I didn't know where she went and found her outside relaxing under a tree.
Hello, we're the Bratsmans. We met at BYU and were married August 22, 2001 in the Salt Lake City Temple. We now live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and have three kids Bentley, Olivia and Lyla. Marc is a CPA and works for Grant Thornton and his client's include REI, BDA, TNXI and the PBA (bowling). Chanel is a stay at home mom, and runs a internet marketing business with Marc. Marc still likes to play basketball, wakesurf, wakeboard, snowboard, go to any sporting event, watch every Jazz game on TV, play rock band but most of all spend time with Chanel and hang out with friends. Chanel loves flowers and was a floral designer before she had kids. She also likes to snowboard, wakeboard, try to wakesurf, and spending time with family and friend. We both like going out to eat and unfortunately spend way too much money doing this, which is probably why our kids will go to community college. Bentley loves to be the "fastest" play games, make crafts (surprisingly), go swimming, and ride his bike. Olivia likes to go on walks, wear necklaces, give hugs and kisses, and push her dolls in her stroller. She is independent, and tries very hard to make mom and dad laugh.
