I arrived on my sister's 16th birthday.. some kids get cars for their birthday but this gal wanted this darling beach cruisin' bike.. you can't tell but it's got these cute little red flower details on the bike
The next day one of my best friends got married... the beautiful Mandi Winterton to the handsome Quinn Beisinger. You can't tell in the pic but both these lovelies have AMAZING hair- their kids are going to have rockin' do's.
the happy couple.. I love seeing them right after they come out of the temple.. so blissful!
It was my first time coming back to the SLC temple after Harold and I got married. It was great to be at my friend's wedding and remember my special day as well. Such wonderful feelings here.
Got to be reunited with some friends at the wedding festivities and had such a good time being with them. Harold and I don't exactly have a lot of friends in Florida yet (unless you count the missionaries that live in the same apartment complex as us) so I was especially ecstatic to hang with my pals.
I also got to meet this handsome little fella for the first time, little Ezra Paul Cook (My newest newphew- more on him later..)
..and of course hanging out with the other little guys. My nephew Beckham has the chubbiest thighs I've ever seen. He's absolutely adorable and completely squeezable.
I took these cute boys (brothers to the above chubby baby) and the little princess below to the new Winnie the Pooh movie. Precious movie- (although at times the little ones thought it was funner to run up and down the aisles of the movie theater..)
Got to enjoy a nice outdoor sunday dinner with my big family. Harold and I talk about how it is one of the things we miss most about being away from Utah.
Also got to meet up with some other friends who are recent, fellow newlyweds. And not to mention indulge in some yummy yogurtland.. havent been to/found any good frozen yogurt shops in P-Cola yet so this was a nice treat.
..And this random picture shows our preparation for Lake Powell this Saturday. Big family reunion = a lot of food. and soda.
That's about sums up what I have been up to so far.. wedding festivities, friends, babies and family- couldn't ask for a better combo. Looking forward to Powell this weekend and then back home to my man that I've missed.
