My brother and his girlfriend kelsey got engaged when we were out in Newport. They are such a great couple and we are excited to have Kelsey in the family!

Newport Beach with the family!!!!

We took a wonderful trip to Newport with my family and had a blast. We did lots of fun things like run/walk on the beach, go for bike rides, boogie board, go out to eat, shop, go to knotts berry farm theme park, play games, and relax. I also got to see my wonderful friend Britney while I was there. She is such a sweetheart and I admire her very much. It was hard to return home. Thanks mom and dad for such a fun, and amazing trip.

Benltey after his bath. We got all the sand out of his toes and bum because dad buried him up to his chest in the sand. I got it on video and he actually really loved it, he was just really messy when Jon was done. I will have to figure out how to put the vido on here.

Cute cousin Belle Belle

My mom and all her grandkids. We were celebrating her birthday!

Two week old little baby chaddy. We were so glad Chad and Jess brought there family to see us. They decided last minute but we are glad they did!

My beautiful Mom on her birthday. She is so selfless and is always doing so much for our family. We love her so much. Bentley just seeks her out when she's in the room.

Amazing shot of the temple

Sweet Bentley!

One of our traditions when we go to Newport is visiting the temple there and having a picnic at the beautiful parks nearby. California does a great job at taking care of their parks and they are all so green. We ate lunch and played woofel ball, football, and the kids played on the playground. Here are also some family shots we took on the temple grounds.

Here are some pics of us on the beach after church and also at a beautiful park we went and had a picnic at.

Jon and I enjoying the beach together!

The boys went and caught starfish and crabs in the rocks. It was fun to examine them up close and then throw them back to there home in the ocean. Bentley sat in his bumbo chair or on my lap most of the time and loved every minute of the beach. He did take a nap on the beach a couple of times though and I think the ocean breeze calmed him. Heidi and my brothers went boogie boarding with Jon. They all had such a great time. Jon enjoyed laying out and of course the picture wouldn't be complete without him talking on his phone {:

Our first day on the beach with Bentley. He loved it. Bentley was mezmorized by the waves and loved squeezing the sand through his tiny toes. Jon got right in the water and started boogie boarding. It was his first time and he had a blast.

Getting ready for church

Bentley boy and I about to head to church. He is such a sweetheart and loves to laugh and giggle. He has started using his voice alot and screams really loud just for fun. It's funny except when we want him to be quiet at church. We will have to work with him on being reverent.

Rice Cereal and visit from cousin Jen

I have started feeding Bentley rice cereal and boy does he love it...... Not! He gags the cereal up and turns red in the face when I try and feed it to him. Hopefully he will start liking it soon because he stares at the food I eat and tries to pull and grab at it. Poor kid knows he is missing out and the good food, but until he can eat it he will have to get used to his rice cereal.
My cousin Jennifer came out to Arizona for a visit and she came to meet Bentley boy with her son Kyle. Kyle is one year older but they will make great buddies when they get older I just know it. Thanks for the visit Jen. I had so much fun.


One of my good friends Chelsea and her two kids finley and Goldie came to visit Bentley and I. Chelsea and I have been friends since we were kids. I enjoyed visiting with her and catching up. Her little daughter and Bentley are only a few days apart. They will make great play buddies. Thanks for everything Chelsea... it was so fun seeing you.... we will have to hang out more when you and Greg get back.

Pool Time!

Bentley loves hanging out by the pool. He loves splashing in the water and eating his hands. Jon also loves the water and enjoys bringing Bentley out to play.
