[ 2-7 !!!]

Casey just turned the big 2--7 a couple days ago! Crazy. My buddy is growing up into a real man. I feel bad because his birthday always falls at a time where we are out of town or our families are so he ends up not getting any much needed birthday attention. BUT this year we actually ended up being at home and were able to have a family sunday birthday dinner with the Kirklands and celebrate on our own with a dinner at Sundance. Oh and being the great wife that I am, I woke up at 6:30 am and headed to Magleby's to get him french toast before he had to leave to work. I rule.

I wish they had these shoes for women!!!!

I love these shoes!!!!! and KEDS decided to make them only for MEN. I searched online all last night for them and they don't exist in women's sizes. I am really bummed. If you are a woman with really big feet you should totally look into purchasing these lovely shoes. They also come in black and grey.

weekend trip to CA and Vegas

This post is kinda of overdue....oh well. In July my mother-in-law Christy and sister-in-law Kelly went to CA for a week to visit Alma (my father-in-law's mom) in Long Beach. I took advantage of the situation and flew down one way on Thursday to drive back with them on Saturday. I spent a great couple of days going to the Malibu (the waves were finally good to me), shopping, eating Dodger dogs and hanging out with my family. On Saturday we drove to Vegas, saw the Donny and Marie show, stayed at the Flamingo and took off the next morning. It was a great, needed mini vacation !

the NEW HOUSE! it's almost done.
We had the all you can eat tickets....

the GREAT outdoors

In the spirit of the summer season, Casey and I have taken a couple of short hikes up the canyon with Sir Charles. One time we even had a little picnic with some take-out thai food (our fav). Utah is soooooo beautiful in the summer. I love how green everything gets...if only it would last. Here are some pictures of us embracing the warm summer evenings !
