Family Movie: 4th of July 2016 in UTAH

I'm finally back to making my movies. I am still 2 behind (New York and Utah Fall). The problem is that I have a MacBook Air and my disk gets full so fast that I am constantly having to clean it up and put everything on my external hard drive before I load clips to make a new movie. It is a lot of work! 
But here is the family movie from our trip to Utah for the 4th of July!
Hopefully this week I can finish the girls trip to NYC one!

Casey's 33rd Birthday Getaway in San Diego!

For Casey's Birthday I took him away to San Diego for a night. We stayed at the Marriott Marquis downtown. It was perfect walking distance from everything. We left early in the afternoon so Casey could finish up some work calls from the hotel room. I went down to the pool to lay out and read. It was heavenly!

That night we went to the Padres Diamondbacks game. I loved that we could walk! It made it so much easier and plus they have this awesome boardwalk by the hotel. The best part about Padres games in Petco Park. They have such good food! Basically all the popular/famous spots in San Diego have a location in Petco Park. I had some really good BBQ and Case got a teriyaki bowl from Seaside Market. I scored again on StubHub and got us $40 tickets behind the dugout. The game was fun because they went into extra innings and won on a walk-off home run.

The next morning we kind of slept in and walked to this yummy cafe to get breakfast in the Gaslamp District. I had banana stuffed french toast :)
Then we headed back home! 
Thanks to my sisters Kenz and Becca for watching the boys!

End of Summer, Coldplay and Dodger Games

This is a little catch up from August!
Chase started preschool super early on August 16. He is doing two one day a week things. One at St. Andrew's by the Sea Church and another at Miss Julie's house. Next year I will put him in a three days a week program. It's just SO expensive here :(

We have been taking advantage of the beach since all the local kids are back in school! It is the best. And can you believe how many little friends my kids have!? That picture of all those kids at the beach is so crazy! And that is probably only half of the kids of all the LDS friends we have in San Clemente. 

We went to Coldplay at the Rosebowl last minute and it was so worth it! Hands down the best concert I have ever been to! We waited till the morning of and got $50 tickets on StubHub. We ended up sitting with my parents and their friends who had better seats and luckily some empty spots behind them. I was obsessed with Coldplay in high school and am still a loyal fan so I have always wanted to see them live!

Our Disneyland blackout dates stopped so we have been going again! We love to go Monday mornings with my sister Becca (her day-off). And my mother-in-law Christy came down to visit. We attempted the trolley ride again in Laguna and it was full when it came to our stop. Chase was so sad he almost cried. There is always next year!

We went to the Dodger game with our friends the Schmutzs. Casey's best friend Mason just moved out here from Texas and will be here for a year doing a Ophthalmology Fellowship. So we have been trying to hang out with them as much as possible!
