The Happiest Place On Earth

I love Disneyland, I grew up in California and we went all the time. I have always loved it and it never gets old. The grounds are immaculate and every kid there is in heaven. Yes, the lines are long, but it is always worth it. Especially now that there is Ride Max. Quite a timesaver. This was Indie's first time at Disneyland and she loved every minute. I don't think she would have left but her mom and dad were done. It was a great way to spend a day.

Indie got her first princess dress from the Bibbidy Bobbidy Boutique, (totally adorable) she went with Sleeping Beauty after much deliberation and stress over choosing. She was so adorable we were dying. I bought her costume and then we went right outside and put it on. Meanwhile Brittanie was buying her shoes and a purse. So, I got her costume on and then she looks up and pulls out her bows and says, "Bows out, crown in."

She is only two and the complete Disney indoctrination is complete. So, we promptly went back in and bought the crown, of course. How can you say no to that face?


We were in California for Samantha's 11 th birthday and we spent it at Disneyland. It was a great day because all of our family was together. Mandy came from Utah for two days and Britt and Marki and Indie loo was there too. We all loved it and Sammy had a great day at Disneyland. She wore a birthday sticker and small hat ( ha ha) all day and every disney employee told her Happy Birthday. She has never had so many birthday wishes.

Happy Anniversary

Greg and I celebrated our anniversary when we were in Utah. We rented a Harley and drove through the Uintah mountains and went to Park City. It was breathtakingly gorgeous and the weather could not have been more perfect. One of our best anniversary's ever. Greg would say any day on a motorcycle is perfect and it was. Happy Anniversary, Love ya more.

July 4th

We spent the sizzling fourth of July, at the parade and the water park and then the fireworks show at Market street. The pictures speak for themselves, sweaty and oppressive but fun.

Finally an Update

Wow, summer 2009 has been a crazy one. Sorry for the lengthy absence. We just got home from being gone for a month, it was great but we are all very happy to be home. To recap the summer, Greg and I spent all of June and I do mean all of it working on our Stake Youth Conference. We planned and executed 2 1/2 days worth of events for 200 teenagers. It was great and generally it all turned out well. Thanks to all of our many friends who didn't ignore my phone calls and pleas for help.

Here are a few of the highlights, yes everyone is sweating profusely the whole time. It was a record breaking June in Houston, lucky for us!! Our weekend included two dances, the first one was at our church but the a/c was broken. Hot but we survived on the chapels a/c blowing into our gym. We worked at the Houston Food Bank, it was great! The last day we had awesome speakers and our "Night In Galilee" It was worth all of the planning and efforts. Thanks everyone!!!
