Craft Blogs

I love that people are becoming so crafty. A new hobby of mine is reading craft blogs and finding fun projects. Next I need to do the projects but I figure reading is a start. My friend Rachel from Vegas is very crafty and has started her own craft blogs. She has the cutest ideas. For a couple more days she is doing some really fun give aways. Visit her blog to see the fun new ideas and enter the give aways.

Newport Beach 2010

Ever since I was 6 weeks old my family has been going to Newport Beach, CA for a week every summer. I have always loved going and it is fun to see how the vacation changes as our family changes. This year was so fun for Brighton. He loved playing in the waves and sand everyday. It was pretty cold for most of th week, until Thursday and Friday. He would still get in the water and get completely soaked! He would run in with his dad towards the wave. After getting wet he would run back up to me with a huge smile on his face and arms open for a hug. Brighton also loved the sand, he threw it, tried to burry people, and destroy sand castles. We also went to Huntington Beach, Fasion Island, and the OC fair. Brighton will always be an early bird; and doesn't adjust to time changes which means he woke up between 6 and 630 every morning. My mother was so sweet to get up with us and we would walk to the peir and back. It became a very popular event for the mornings. Sometimes we were joined by Kherrington, Heather, and Amy. We missed Uncle Adam and hope he will be there with us next year. Thanks MOm and Dad for taking us!!

Oh Thank Heaven for 7/11

Wow! Two years! Chris and I both agree that it seems so much longer than that, maybe because we dated forever, and maybe because we have done sooooo many things in just two years! For our anniversary this year Kim and Alan got us a hotel stay in Park City. We left our little bugaboo with Amy & Woody and headed up Monday night. The place was beautiful. They had an adults only relaxation pool inside. It was so warm and like the name said, relaxing. We also went swimming in the outside pool that was filled with kids. For dinner we went to Bandits and Barbeque and Steak house. We both got all you could eat bbq ribs, steak, chicken, pulled pork... you name it. The food was great and we were pleased with the bill. We stopped by The Family Tree, a genealogy place in Park City. I showed Chris my Great Great Grandpa Earl on the large family tree right when you walk in. It shows the many famous people we are related to, Joseph Smith, President Bush. Earl's Grandson put the information together to see who is family was related to. A General Authority saw the tree and decided to publish it there. Pretty cool! The next day we went to the outlets. We hit the jackpot in Carter's for Bug, got Chris some new polo's and khaki shorts, both buy one get one free. I got some new shirts and a cool hat. Then we headed home to get our Bug who we had missed so much!!

Brighton did so well with Amy and Woody. He luckily slept the whole night through, ate a few things and played hard. If Amy would leave the room he would call "MA" after her. He watched some animal videos with Woody and enjoyed growling back at the animals. When Amy went to work Woody took him to their apartment in Provo. He ran around for a bit, then laid his little self on the floor and took a nap. It is still unbelievable to me that he did this even though I got there in time to witness his sleeping. Crazy kid!
