Summer fun, Vacations, Birthdays and Mother's!

I know it has been awhile since I have blogged and yes I have a lot of catching up to do! So here is what's been going on for the last couple of weeks! Besides being super sick the sun has come out and it is feeling more like summer so I'm working on our patio to make it a little more approachable! Thanks to my cousin Carol-lyn she got us these really cute pots and chairs to help spice up our very boring patio. Its still a working progress, but I'll post more pictures if I ever get it finished!

The Babcocks invited us to go to the A's game with them the other day and we had so much fun! We had V.I.P seating and it was Colby's first baseball game, It was really exciting he got a game ball and made it on the jumbo screen!



You can't go to a baseball game and not get some nachos

Or pizza and a churro (to bad it was the grossest churro EVER)


We got very exciting news Last Thursday that we have been waiting FOREVER for! John and Brent passed their national boards! We were all so excited, a big weight is lifted off our shoulders! Good Job boys!

We've been planning a trip to So Cal for the last few weeks to attend a wedding for one of John's mission companions, the wedding was in San Diego and it worked out nicely we were able to visit Brianne and Brandon while we were there!
We had the best beach day ever!


John was able to surf for a couple of hours and I finally got a video of him.. Pretty hot stuff!

While I was with Bri we got a very unexpected package from Lester, Can you believe this.. our mother sent us a mothers day package! ha ha she is adorable! My mother is the best.. look how cute this package is..

It was full of yummy treats and very cute pair of earrings!

Later that night we stayed at the Hilton Hotel for a night, we were treated like kings! We were giving a wedding gift basket when we arrived and we had such a nice room!

This was the view from our room the swimming pool was awesome as well as tennis, golf, etc.


We just want to say Thank you to Adam's parents for treating us so nicely, the wedding was wonderful and we are so happy for Adam and Sheridan Paulson! We love you guys!

While we were in So. Cal we had many events take place, my sweet little baby girl Avery turned the BIG 1 years old! She is so sweet and we wish we could have been there to help her celebrate! We love you Avery Sue!


Another big event took place It was Mother's Day, and we just wanted to say how much we love our Mother's! My mom as well as John's mom has been so inspiring and such wonderful role models to both of us! We love our Mother's more then words could ever express! They are such great women and we would not be the people we are today without them! We hope you had a great day and just know how much we love and admire you! Thanks for everything you do for us, we can't thank you enough! We are so lucky to have such great mothers in our lives to always help us when we need them, as well as just to be there for a good laugh! We are truly blessed and once again we LOVE YOU!

It was Eli's birthday day as well as my Grandma's Birthday on Mother's day! So my family threw one massive party for Mother's day, Grandma, Eli and Avery's B-Day! Once again we just want to wish you a Happy Birthday and hope you had a great day! We love you guys so much and can't wait to see you all!
WE LOVE YOU!!
