Want a Ride?

Today we went to Balboa Penninsula and took a nice walk along the beach. We stopped for lunch near the pier and then headed back. It was a beautiful day and it reminded me that I really need to take advantage of the beach more often.

Cracker got lazy and tired on our walk back so we loaded him up in the stroller with Isaac. We got lots of smiles from people passing by.

Utah Trip

We try to make it up to Utah at least once a year, but it seems that every time we go it is always such a short trip, with so much to do, and so many people to see, that it ends up just being a crazy jam packed weekend. Our recent trip was no exception. We decided to go to Utah for Labor Day weekend so that we could be there for the baby blessing of our newest niece. It was an exhausting trip, but it was nice to be able to see so many people while we were there. Here is a few things that we got to do while we were there:
  • Visit with my sister Lisa and see our new niece Katie
  • Drove to Price to spend 24 hours with Charlie's brother Chris and his family
  • Dinner with Lisa's family, Grandma, Aunt Shirly, Mom & Wendy
  • A quick shopping trip to Dillards (they always have a nice selection of modest dresses)
  • Attend the baby blessing at church (and by some miracle I was able to keep Isaac quiet long enough to stay in the chapel and hear the blessing!)
  • Attend the family gathering afterwards and visit with aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.
  • Shopped at Deseret Book and the LDS Distribution Center
  • Ate at Cracker Barrel twice
  • Ate at Cafe Rio
  • Made four stops for Sonic drinks - their Diet Cherry Limeade Slush is my absolute favorite and there are no Sonic's nearby at home
  • Had breakfast with Charlie's friend Amber and her family
  • Met up with a few of my old roommates and their families
  • Walked around BYU campus (in the rain) and got a little BYU t-shirt for Isaac at the bookstore
  • Stopped by my grandparent's house on the way to the airport to say goodbye
  • Stayed up past 12:00 every single night because Isaac refused to go to sleep! And he also woke up screaming multiple times throughout the night. Way to go Isaac. Let's just see if we take you on anymore trips after that disaster!

We had a good time, but were pretty exhausted by the time we left (mostly due to lack of sleep). I kept forgetting to take out my camera, so I have almost no pictures of what we did or who we saw. I guess we will just have to go back. :)
