Here fishy, fishy

Do you see the fish? Neither do we but they will be coming soon. Jared's dad so kindly lent us his aquarium and we spent one night setting it up and buying lost of fun fish stuff. We plan to fill it full of fun and unique fish. So stay tunned :)

Go Margy go!!!

Jared and I saw Margy in action this summer.
She played soccer and did a great job.

SAY CHEESE! Mom and sister Lucy sit on the
side lines cheering Margy on!


While Jared’s family was visiting we hosted a pizza party. But this was not your ordinary pizza party…I made fresh pizza dough and everyone got to make a pizza of their choice. Here you can see Jared trying to toss the dough and the yummy pizza Margy made.

A rainy day at the zoo

Jared and Mom

Grandma and the kids

While Rachael and the kids were here visiting we went to the zoo in hopes that the sunshine would come out. But it didn't and the rain came down and the floods came up. The kids seemed to have a pretty good time seeing all the animals and running around in their ponchos. Even though it was cold and wet we made some good memories.

One of Jared's favorite past times is golfing. Jared, Jamason and I went to Sleepy Hollow golf course and I was the caddy. Here you can see just how good these two golfers are and me driving the cart. It was my first time on a golf course and I couldn't get over just how beautiful it was. No wonder people love to golf.

Silver Lake

Jared got a tent for his birthday and Jen and Beau got one for their what do you do with tents? YOU CAMP! The whole family got together and went to Silver Lake for the weekend. We went swimming and rafting in ice cold water, ate great camping food and tried to keep the bugs away. It was just like camping when we were kids but this time I got to sleep in my own tent with my husband.

Jenalee and Beau tied the knot on June 15, 2006. These two love birds met in high school and have been together ever since. Their wedding was beautiful and very special. We are so happy for them and excited to have another brother.

Tomatoes, Peppers, beans...


This summer Jared and I decided to start a garden. My grandmother has a place for a garden at her house but the land has not been used in years. Jared, my dad and brothers dug out the tiller and worked that dirt all night long. Soon after we planted tomatoes, pepper (hot and green), beans, an eggplant, radishes, carrots, cucumbers, and zucchini. Unfortunately we forgot that in Alpine it is very windy and that gardens need a lot of water. So we lost a few plants but have been able to keep some. Here are a few pics of our 1st garden!

Mexican Riviera

For our honeymoon Jared and I went on a cruise to Mexico. We spent one week on this HUGE ship with thousands other people and a lot of food. You could eat something at any time of the day. We had a great time and were able to see a lot of beautiful things. Here you can see our smiling faces on lover's beach.

This was take just before we got on the boat.

In Mazatlan Jared and I took a ride in what seemed like golf cart. This cute driver told us all about Mazatlan as he drove us from on side of the town to the other.

My favorite part of the cruise was at Puerto Vallarta. We did one of the shore excursions called Rhythms of the Night. You took a boat ride to a hideaway beach haven of Las Caletas. Where we were served dinner on the beach and ate by candle light. After dinner we moved to the outdoor amphitheater for stories of an ancient civilization revealed through music and dance.
I LOVED it!!!

We ran into the missionaries while walking on the beach and they were so excited to see us and took our picture for us.

At Puerto Vallarta Jared and I decided to walk up and down the beach. This cute boy followed us and asked us to buy something from his cigar box. We bought a package of Chiclet gum and he took a picture with Jared :)
