Our Adventures

Matt and I went to Hawaii for our anniversary (Sept 1st-8th) and ever since we got back, It has been nonstop GO, GO, GO..... I just posted pictures from our trip that we went on over a month ago. We have had to catch-up on work from vacation, we had to finalize everything so we could close on our new house, we had softball games 3 nights a week (The Rally Monkeys took first place again), we’ve had to pack boxes, clean, move and unpack boxes. It’s all good but, I am ready for a vacation again!! But that won’t be happening anytime soon since we just purchased our first house.

THANKS A MILLION to all our family and friends who could help us with our move!!! WE REALLY APPRECIATE ALL THE HELP!!!
Both my mom and mother in-law (Janice) have been tremendous help also!! They have taken extra time to come help us clean, unpack boxes, bring in meals for us or whatever else we needed. We are so grateful for your help and we love you both very much!!

I will post some pictures of our new house soon.

For our second anniversary we went to Hawaii, Matt lived in Kihei on Maui with his cousin Kris ten years ago. It was my first time to Hawaii. We had so much fun seeing some of the places he hung out, we even saw one of his friends from back then! Maui is absolutely beautiful!! We stayed in Wailea for five days then went over to Hana for two days. The Hana coast has amazing and had endless tropical scenery but, we liked Wailea better. We went to Hamoa beach in Hana to go bodysurfing and while Matt was bodysurfing he lost his wedding ring in the ocean. We tried to find it but, never did. We both weren’t too happy after that…. These are a few of the pictures from the trip and a silde show with the rest.

Today is our 2 year Anniversary!

Two years ago today I was married to the most amazing man I've ever met. I am the luckiest woman in the world to be with Matt and spend forever with him. We have a great marriage and a lot of that is due to Matt being a great communicator. I have met few men so kind, generous, and genuine as Matt. He is such a hard worker and always wants to make our family better. Matt brings out the best in me and makes me want to be a better person, wife, friend and future mother.

Thank you Matt for the 2 amazing years! I'm excited for the next 60+ years, I am privileged to spend with you! You are my best friend and I am grateful everyday, to be married to you! I love you with all my heart babe!!

August 2008
I have been a slacker blogger lately. August was a busy month for us.

This is what we have been up to lately:

(Aug 1st-8th)
My brother Zack, his wife Bethany and our nephew Jack came in town to visit from Indiana. They had a busy schedule while they were in town, Matt and I were only able to see them a couple of times. The family got together and had a BBQ/swim party at our place for my mom’s birthday. It was so good to see my brother and his family again! Our nephew Jack is so adorable and growing up to fast!! I hope they can move back home (Utah) soon!!

Mom's Birthday
It was my Mom’s birthday last Friday, August 1st. I took her to the Martina McBride concert for her birthday. Melissa and her mom went with us too. It was at the Usana Amphitheatre that is the best place for concerts, I love that its outdoors! We all went to dinner before the concert at Chili’s (I love their chips and salsa, Yum). Martina sounded GREAT live!! I had a blast(Thanks Girls)!! I love you Mom, You're the BEST!!!

Another Fun Summer BBQ
Our friends Cody and Kaysi had a BBQ for their sister Nicole’s birthday. Matt and I went and had a fun time with everyone….
