We went to Disneyland in April with all 3 of my sisters and family. We got to eat lunch at the famous "Club 33," where Walt Disney used to eat. It was very good food with a buffet and filet mignon!
Hiking with Marissa and her cute girl. You can almost see the ocean behind us.
We had a 9 year roommate reunion in San Luis! It was totally awesome, and there were 7 of us! We got to talk, go downtown, kayak, body board at the beach, go to dinner, go in the jacuzzi, watch "A Walk to Remember," go to Montano de Oro, and eat a lot! I am so glad we could all get together. These are such fun girls!
Andrea and me at the beach
Cute cousins waiting to skype with Grandma and Grandpa
Walking along the cliffs near Pismo and Avila beach.
I got to visit my sister and brother-in-law while Dave was in China. They live in Orange County, so we got to go to a fun park that had a train ride that the boys just loved.
My sister, Melinda, teaching me how to cake decorate. It is hard to eat the cake after you spend so much time decorating, but we managed to eat it all:)
Train ride in Irvine, CA
4th of July at Pismo Beach. Notice the thousands of people camped out on the beach waiting for the fireworks!
I got to go up to Utah and visit family while Dave was in China. My nieces and nephews took me to this fun new water park near their house.
Going on a mountain bike ride in Alpine with my brother-in-law and nephew. It was beautiful, but it was killer!
Meeting Great Grandpa for the first time.
Hanging out with my awesome friend Na and her to kids before she heads off to Singapore for at least a few years! Going to miss her!
So Dave went to China with his MBA class of about 30 students. It was a two week trip where they toured several factories and businesses. He loved it, and I hope to go back there someday with him. Some people aren't that interested in traveling to Asia, but it has always been a dream of mine. Here he is on the Great Wall! He also was quoted in two newspaper articles in San Luis about their trip!
The English translations of the food were very interesting. This meat (whatever it is) is translated as an "extremely handheld device." :)
The Bund in Shanghai. Dave said it is a very modern and nice city. 25 million people live in Shanghai! Crazy because I think about 32 million live in the whole state of California!
He got to go up the 3rd tallest building in the world, and go to the tallest observation deck in the world! So I guess it the highest anyone can go in a building.
Forbidden City in Beijing
Enjoying the lights of Shanghai
Hiking Stewart Falls in Utah. He loved the backpack, but he is definitely getting heavier!
Buffalo in Grand Teton National Park. I forgot how huge these beasts are!
His fun cousin and aunt!
4 generations. Family reunion in Island Park. We played tennis, went tubing down the river, played games, roasted hot dogs and smores, etc!
Old Faithful Geyser at Yellowstone National Park
Grand Teton National Park. This was absolutely spectacualar.
So you may wonder why I have a picture of a huge ice cream. I have been pretty much off of dairy products because of problems with nursing. I decided one day that I was going to get an ice cream and see how the nursing went. I decided to go for the largest size I could get! I think his stomach has matured to handle some dairy, but he still definitely doesn't love it. Man, I have never enjoyed an ice cream that much!
Learning how to crawl! He started on our 5 year anniversary! He is so proud of himself. He is into everything now.
Hanging out with his cousin that is only 3 weeks younger! They have a lot of fun together.
Soaking it all in at the BYU Football practice with Daddy. Dave is starting him young I guess.:)
