Foo Fighters

A stop at Smashburger before a RADICAL concert is our idea of a perfect night! Foo Fighters were amazing! Such talent. We had the best time!


This kid is one of a kind. Our family has more than enjoyed the time we get to spend with him. There is something he brings into our home that can't be described. Of course he sees my kids acting crazy or Bryan and I getting on each other's nerves. But there is a Spirit in our home that is more present when he is around. He has made us want to be better people. He has the kindest heart of anyone I've ever met. The other day he came up to me in the morning and said "I'd like to do some service today. Is there anyone you know who could use a visit today?" I made some cookies and we went out and visited the sick and old. It was a special experience. I learn so much from him. And feel so grateful that we get to experience his Christlike attributes.

Julian, CA

The most fun day trip! We love going every year and almost every year we hope for a cool fall day and end up sweating in the heat. The kids could not have had more fun! We made apple cider, dipped candles, mined for gold, played with animals at the petting zoo, took a hay ride and most importantly... ate LOTS of yummy food! Until next year favorite little apple town!

We just got back from a fun little getaway to Pasadena. It was perfect fall weather! We ate at Pinkberry, Le Grande Orange, Marston's and Jake's Burgers. We shopped Colorado Blvd. and did the Rose Bowl Flea Market again (really it's like a dream)! I got the girl's Christmas dresses and even did a little bit of Christmas shopping. Very fun time and a needed mini break!

There will be a day in the very near future when these girls will not want to dress up anymore. And the thought of that just makes me sad.

Conference Weekend in PS

A quick trip out to the desert for conference weekend consisted of Jcrew outlet, Sonic Run, dinner at El Galleto, Priesthood session for the guys while the moms and kids took a boat ride and saw the flamingos at the Marriott, treats, TJ maxx run, late night jacuzzi, SNL, pancake breakfast, pool, conference and a traditional stop at Old Spaghetti Factory on the way home. It was a fun, fun time!
*sadly I keep forgetting my camera places and I am realizing that I need to get the new iphone for that purpose.
