Faith gets her funny faces from her father

the things we do to entertain our children while waiting in long lines

Tyson, Faith & Ethan

even Jaylee enjoyed the rides. Its a Small world was her favorite

Yesterday we went to Disneyland. It was a long day. We woke up early and drove about an hour and half we got there about 9:30am. I was really excited because I havent been there since I was eight or nine. It was better than I remembered. It was HOT and the lines were sooo long but it was worth it. I even road on the Indiana Jones ride and it was scary. I am such a chicken I never ever ride any rides. The last ride I was on was at Amazing Jakes pizza, the Frog Hopper. I screamed so loud for them to let me off that I freeked Faith out too and we were both screaming. They had to stop the ride and let us off. People were staring, not cool.Saturday my sister in law Heather and her two oldest kids Tyson and Ethan flew in from Utah to stay our last week. Faith had a blast with her cousins. We got home around 12:30am. The days are flying by now, I cant believe we leave on Sunday:(

Last week we toured the U.S.S. Midway a retired aircraft carrier. It was cool to see how our men live for months on end. The planes were really cool to see too.

Faith was so happy she was finally tall enough to ride this year

Yesterday we went to Sea World. It was HOT but the shows were great and we all had a good time.

MY Family Comes To Visit

Chance & Faith and their sand Sea Turtle

Ronnie's giant shell

Mariah, Chance, Faith & Jaylee dressed like pioneers at the Mormon Battalion

Every summer we come to Capri here in San Diego with Ronnie's family and his extended family probably 50+ people. Finally after all the years of coming and trying to talk my family into coming out too they finally did. They came for a short weekend trip. We had a lot of fun in one day. Faith had fun on the beach with her cousin Chance. While we were all in the ocean looking for sea shells to decorate their sea turtle's shell, Ronnie found a huge shell. Later we made my brave Aunt Coleen pry it open to see if there was a pearl inside. There wasn't, bummer. Later that evening we went to visit the Mormon Battalion in Old Town San Diego and then we ate yummy mexican food there. After that we drove to see the San Diego Temple. There is nothing like seeing this temple at night, my picture doesn't do it any justice either. It was a fun visit thanks for coming guys!

Today has been perfect beach weather, sunny and warm all day. It was Jaylee's first time ever at the beach and swimming and she loved both. She had so much fun splashing the water in the pool with her hands. Its so much fun watching your children experiance things for the first time, its almost as great as if I were living it again for the first time.

June Gloom

We made it to San Diego late Friday night. It has been cloudy every day except Sunday and we dont go down to the beach on Sundays:( Faith is dying to get down there. Thats the greatest thing about staying right on the beach, you can beach it as you please. I have enjoyed eating all my favorite places that I havent been too since last summer.Today Ronnie bought a month membership to a jiu jitsu place so he can train while were here. Thats about it for now, just enjoying the ocean...
