Newport Pictures

Our Trip to Newport

We are back from our trip to Newport Beach. Each year we get to spend one week visiting with Matt’s grandpa. He has a great little place right on the beach. The kids just loved staying on the beach. We found that while Gabby enjoyed learning to boogie board in the water Jake enjoyed the new hot sport of sand bodysurfing. We would dig a hole and then he would body surf down the sides. (If I can figure this out I will post the video.) We took our annual trip over to Balboa Island and enjoyed nightly excursions for frozen chocolate covered bananas.
We were able to catch up with lots of friends while we were in town. We saw Jim and Katie Watkins with their cure baby boy, Roy and Cora (my brother and his wife), Kevin and Karsen and their beautiful daughters, and Matt’s friends Bethany and Rob with their kids. We were also able to overlap with Matt’s sister Emily and her family. Gabby and Jake loved playing with their cousins.
If the pictures posted above are not enough (if you have time to kill or you are related) here is the link to Matt’s web album:

Seriously, so blessed

OK, I had to add this to my list of blogs because it really is funny. Matt sent me an email with the link and two hours later I was still laughing. It is a spoof blog on married Mormon moms. You have to be able to laugh but it is the funniest thing that I have read in a long time.

So Enjoy!!!!!!!


For those who don't know SYTYCD is short (almost short) for So you think you can dance. I really don't watch reality TV but thanks to Emily E. I am completely addicted to this show. In fact for three years we have been trying to go to the SYTYCD tour and I think that this is the year! We will find out on Saturday if we can get tickets but I am pretty excited!!!
Just for Emily: my prediction of the winner....Twitch or Joshua!!
