Family Vacation

We left on Wednesday to drive down to St. George, and then continue on on Thursday to California (since our flight plans didn't work out for us). We got to California and went out to dinner on Thursday at Bubba Gumps Shrimp Co. It was SO yummy!!! Wish that they had one closer to us, because it was the best shrimp I'd ever had. On Friday, we went to Disneyland ALL DAY!!! Here's my mamma and me, waiting for the shuttle to the Magic Kingdom.

Here's the whole gang together at Disneyland. Dad, Mom, Chantel, Phil, Brant, Shelene, Me, Adam, Cristl, Steve, McKayla, Parker, Brynlee and Sam (plus Wyatt!). Anticipation for the day was high, and we still had all of our energy :)

We went on lots of rides, of course, but since I had a "condition", I stayed with the little ones on a lot of the more thrilling rides. Here's Adam waiting for the Star Tours ride. So handsome.

Taking a break to sit down before the parade starts. McKayla got the "royal treatment" at the Princess Boutique, thanks to Brant. She was giddy for the rest of the day as everyone called her Princess and said how pretty she looked. A couple of Asian ladies even asked to get their picture taken with her :)

Riding the horses on the carousel. One of my favorite rides, always to calm and relaxing.

Here's half of the group on Splash Mountain. This is one of the rides I couldn't go on, so I got to take pictures instead :)

We stayed late at the park and even had a late dinner at the Blue Bayou, the resturant in the middle of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.

On Saturday, we went to Santa Monica beach to take in some sun.
Here's my view of the ocean :) Blocked just a little by my little guy!
Here we are at the beach, with Adam wearing his silly hat (his dad got it on the day Adam was born, so it's sentimental...can't do much about it). Nicely pale with fresh tan lines :)
Sam was so cute in his floaties :) He loved the beach, until he put it in his mouth!
We had so much fun in California, just spending time with our family and lots of laughs!

Long Time No See

Alright, alright. Here's a new post finally. It took me a few weeks to get some pictures together, and then another few weeks to not post them :) But this post is going to be random, and quick hopefully.

Yep, the belly. 26 weeks, 2 days. And that was almost two weeks ago! Yikes, getting big already!

Progress is being made on the backyard...finally. We (as in I mostly just had to watch) pulled up the sod where the pation was going and Adam tore down our flimsy deck. Now just waiting for concrete! Then we'll hopefully get the grass healthy again, since it's mostly crispy due to the lack of a good sprinkler system.
And Adam took a picture of Brody. Not really a puppy anymore. More like 65-70 lbs.

We went and saw Carrie Underwood at the Stadium of Fire with Kevin and Amber Smith. It was really really fun, and the fireworks were awesome!

This past weekend we went to the demo derby with Kev and Amber out in Riverton.
(don't gasp at my picture! It's hot, and I'm pregnant and tired!)
It was so funny to see the car crashing. I had no idea what was in store when I said I'd go to the demo derby, but it was a lot of fun. Smoky, but fun.
Well, that's all folks! Hopefully it won't be another month and a half before I post again, but who knows? If you want more details, you're just going to have to call me :)
