San Diego... LA

 Can I first just say that I LOVE how cheap Allegiant Air is :)
I was able to go to California last weekend for $100 ROUND TRIP!!

Last Thursday I dropped my boys off to Gordon's sister in ID and flew to LA.
I wasn't about to get a rental car and try to drive by myself so I took the train to San Diego...
It was awesome! I've never ridden a train before and I LOVED it.
Besides the huge reclining seats... the view was my favorite! 

 I got into San Diego around 7:30pm and went to dinner with some friends.
We ate at Ruth's Chris Steak House... AMAZING!!

That night I got to stay with one of my Best Friends!
The next morning we went to the Swap Meet and then had a yummy lunch.
So good to see Kate!!

 I had to steal this picture off facebook...
Look how cute her little girl London is!
Such a sweet face :)
Her smiles made my day...
From there I was back on the road to LA 
I had some meetings that night and then I went to dinner with some friends at a place called Big Wang's
One of the guys we were with and his cute daughter that worked there
After another great dinner I stayed the night with one of my friends from high school
Emily is a photographer in LA. It was fun to see her again and meet her boyfriend Sergio.
They are currently putting a Trailer together for a movie Emily is acting in and producing!!
So fun to see friends from High School doing great things :)
Saturday morning I got up early and headed to some meetings in LA.
Gord and his nephew Kaden flew in that morning and met me.
Yvette and her sweet mom. We love meeting new people :)
Saturday night we stayed with my cousin who also lives close to LA.
Her little girls are so cute! They were excited to have guests :)
Such a fun, fast paced weekend...
It was fun to see old friends and meet new ones.
Can't wait to go back!!


The Elephant Parade...

I think it has become tradition!

When the Circus comes to town they do an elephant parade through the Gateway Mall
downtown Salt Lake.
We went with our friends from West Jordan again this year.
Tydon loves holding the signs.
"There were really tall guys too" Tydon was telling Gord all about them at dinner last night
Cool cars...

and trucks.
Crazy clowns.
And of course...
The elephants!
Fun morning with the boys and some of our friends :)



Before we left we celebrated this little guy's birthday
He took his friends and family on a little tractor ride...
Such a cute boy! Happy Birthday VAN :)
On the way to Idaho we saw this...
Gord and I couldn't stop laughing.
{It took us about 20 min of riding the poor biker to finally get a good picture, but it was worth it}
The night before we left we got a phone call from my cousin telling us that Ashtyn had fallen off her horse and BROKEN HER FEMUR!!
She's real tough though and hasn't cried yet :)
I can't believe my brother is a Senior... makes me feel old
Football season is in full swing and he's playin great!
Happy 4th Birthday to this cutie!
She made a haul :)
Gord and his nephews played a friendly game of "Sting Pong" that results in this!
Braxton lost :)
And of course we couldn't come home without stopping at the Blackfoot Fair
Tydon was so excited to ride the rides.
He did chores last week to earn his tickets.

Gord even had fun!
Tydon loved having Briggs there too {he loves his cousins}
Henson was wore out!
Tydon is all about posing for pictures these days...
Every bite of food he takes lately makes his "muscles move"
 But the best part of the fair is seeing your friends :)
It's always fun to go home and see the fam!


From 9 to 10 months...

This cute face has officially turned into a little boy...
He's not our little baby anymore :(
In just 1 month he has gone from 2 teeth on the bottom to this...
He hasn't had any problems teething... luckily!
Still such a happy boy! He only gets whiny when it's time to eat or sleep.
He has his own sign language...
Happy or Excited!
His legs and his hands go crazy when he gets excited
And he loves to share... it's a fun game really. He gives it to you and then 
wants it back, then gives it to you again...
He loves to crawl around
and pull himself up on anything and everything.
He loves to come stand by me when I'm in the bathroom getting ready or in the kitchen cooking.
He crawls over and pulls himself up and just stands there by me, must make him feel like a big boy.
Our favorite is his "cheesball" grin. He wrinkles his nose.
He also loves to crawl over  and through things. Right before this he had crawled over the bottom bar on the stool and got high centered, but I couldn't get to my camera fast enough.
Who taught Tydon to flash signs when I take pictures of him?! He is ALL boy!
These two are so cute together. Glad they get along so well.
