A few weeks ago some friends of ours decided we were all going to go down to Manti together since we hadn't been to a session there before. We woke up early on a Saturday got dressed up all pretty and hopped in the car with Chelsi and Mike for the drive. We devoured delicious cinnamon rolls and chocolate milk as we drove and we arrived to see the beautiful temple.
We walked up to the doors only to discover it was being remodeled and would be closed for another week and a half. So instead we walked around the temple.
It was a fun day.
Recently I got to do something I had wanted to do for some time.
I got to go to a Real Salt Lake Soccer game. This was made possible because of this beautiful person.
My friend Krystal.
Not to mention we had great seats right behind the goal which by the way, Salt Lake beat New York 2 to 0. Yea!
In other news Ben and I have finally completed painting the inside or our home. We're excited to be done and psyched with the results. Pictures will be forthcoming once we've had a chance to clean up. That's all for now.

If you notice I'm holding her in both pictures. That's the only way we could get her to stay still long enough to take the picture. She is one crazy little ball of energy.Here's Boston Dog looking as handsome as ever for the camera. He poses. This is his I'm curious why you're taking my picture but don't I look dignified? look. Of course he always has one ear that sticks up and one that flops over and yes he can control it. He's goofy.
Here are my pups playing you can see Eva is quite a bit smaller than Boston.
She may be little but she's a fierce little fighter when she wants something. I hope you enjoyed the pups, we sure do.
This was called Jaba the hut, That flowing rock is 12 feet deep.
After the excitement of the caves we call took a break and napped/ate/showered. Then we headed for Salt Lake to go to the Greek Festival in honor of the fact Christina is in fact Greek. Unfortunately I don't have pictures of that but I did eat way too much because all the food was sooo good,
After the stuffing of ourselves we headed over to Christina's sister Liz's apartment for cake with ice cream in the middle. It was good. Definitely an all day birthday celebration.
