An eventful Week in Arizona and a week in California with Family!

I was lucky to go visit my family for a couple weeks. I spent a week in Arizona with them and a week in California. We did so much. I got there sunday and was able to celebrate Fathers Day and my moms birthday with them( even though her birthday was really Tuesday). On Tuesday my dad and I put up these cute signs with pictures of my moms head on funny bodies all around the neighborhood anouncing her special day. On Tuesday my brother Kyle also got home from his mission in Ecaudor. We hardly recognized him with his hat on and glasses. It was quite the reunion with funny stories and visiting. We were all together for the first time in two years. It was awesome having my whole family together again. Unfortunately Jon was the only missing one due to work. I know he would have loved to be there and everyone missed him. We had BBQ's, swam in the pool, and played games. Michael and Amber had us over for homemade butterfinger Ice cream and it was delicious. I was able to visit with my best friend Jade as well.
A couple days after kyle got home we left to Newport Beach Calfornia. We had such a blast playing in the sand, boogie boarding, playing games, going to the board walk, and visiting. We went to Knotts Berry Farm and had fun riding the rides there as well. We went to see the Newport Temple and it was so beautiful. I was able to visit two of my very good friends Brittany, and Corrine. They both live near Newport ( those lucky girls) and they came and picked me up. We went to eat at my favorite pizza place BJ's in Balboa and celebrated brittany's birthday. We loved catching up because we don't get to see eachother much anymore. Brittany also took me to get Sprinkles Cupcakes for us and my family. They were to die for. Sadly our trip came to an end. We had so much fun. Thanks mom and dad for such great trip and memories.
When we got home I got to stay for Kyles Homecoming talk. He did a great job. My plane left shortly after so I had to tell everyone goodbye. I miss them but I was glad to come home to my husband as well. Hopefully he will be able to come on the next trip!

I wondered why you hadn't been blogging. It is always nice to go home and visit. Even when you are 39. When do you guys come back to Spanish Fork?
