This summer was a busy one for us. It went by so quick! The kids are back in school already!!!  Sheesh!  This summer we went to visit family, put in our yard and Nate and I got to go to New York. I have never been. New York is a pretty cool place. I can see why people want to live there.

Nate served his LDS mission there. Harlem is a different place than it was 15 years ago! We saw a white couple walking down the street with a baby stroller and Nate was speechless! He had the urge to run and stop them and ask them if they were lost because 15 years ago, you would not have seen a white person in Harlem, let alone a whole family!  They also happened to be members of our church!

We also had a long stay in Utah. We got to go swimming, visit my grandpa in Idaho, see Martin’s Cove, go through the new temple open house, have BBQ’s and sleepovers. We had a great time and we wish we had more time to do everything and see everyone. It was a great time!

So here are about a bazillion random photos from about May to Sept.  Click on the pictures to see them better!  Go on… do it now!

BTW, I don’t know what the deal is with that one photo with the ? mark.  Whateva…  Click on it and you can see it.

Brave or stupid?

We had a bit of goof up trying to get this posted.  We have the below story with pictures on this link here

“Back in the day, I always wanted to go skydiving. Nate remembered an opportunity I had to go and I turned it down because he came up to Logan to see me. He never forgot. 10 years later, he completely surprised me and gave me the chance to do it! Now that I’m alive and back on the ground, I can say, “Thanks Nate!” It was a once in a lifetime opportunity. Although, maybe I’ll do it again when I’m 90…”

More Vacation pictures

We went to Kualoa Ranch, where several movies have been made, including the very popular Very Brady Sequel. Did anyone know that there WAS another Brady Bunch movie made? Yeah, me neither!

We also went surfing at Waikiki Beach. It was really crowded so it was hard to get going because you didn’t want to run someone over! But it was a lot of fun! It was great exercise too! Poor Nate got major rash burns, even with his rash guard on. No pictures since we were taking a lesson together! Bummer!

We also did some snorkeling but we didn’t take pictures of that either. We were planning on visiting Hanauma Bay, which is fantastic for snorkeling but it was closed because of jellyfish! So we don’t have any pictures of snorkeling either!

We swam with sharks-IN A CAGE! It was so cool. Sharks are so menacing looking! It was creepy but amazing at the same time! We had a cheapy underwater camera for that so we’ll see how those turn out and I’ll scan ’em in later. So sweet!

Our plane was grounded due to some problems with the engine. We left 3 hours later at 1:00 am. We missed out flight out of San Fransisco so we had to wait another FOUR hours until another flight came up. We were late for Ethan’s birthday but managed to have dinner at a restaurant of his choice-Taco Bell-and open a few presents. Then to bed! Whew! My mom watched the kids the ENTIRE time! I know she loved every minute of it but she was definitely glad to have a good solid night’s rest when we came back! Thank you mom!!!

In all, it was a wonderful vacation! It was so nice to get away, I feel so spoiled. I was even more thankful to be back again and see my babies! Thank you Nate, for working so hard so we could go on this adventure together! It has been a crazy 10 years! Here’s to 10 more years of insanity! I love you!

Back to reality…

Ok, where do I start? Nate and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary this year! I know, where did that 10 years go?!? We decided to go to Hawaii! Reggie’s in-laws were so generous to let us stay at their place and borrow a car! We can’t thank them enough! It was really awesome! Below are some photos….

Alright, I’ll post some more later!

Time to update the wardrobe

The other day Mae dressed Asher for the day and he was wearing a button up shirt that was a nice blue and orange plaid.  He looked down and will poking his protubing tummy babbled “dadda dadda.”  The kids gone corporate already!
