Family Love

My family took pictures yesterday.... they turned out so so cute I just had to post them. I love my family and I love love when we are all together!

Thank you to my brother's girlfriend Jaden for helping with my camera and taking the pictures that I had to be in!

Our lives have been taken over by the replay of the same day over and over again... there is always something to be done.

I wake up and go to the gym when Brett goes to work. He works all day while I workout, do various errands and things around the house and when Brett gets home we go to the gym together. After he is done doing weights and I'm done with my workout we usually sit in the hot tub for a bit then we head home. By that time it is getting later and we are tired so we relax on the couch for a bit, or on Wednesdays we drive to Layton for my volleyball games, then head up to bed. Then it starts all over again the next day exactly how it happened the day before.

I feel like each day is on replay. Which is ok for now but I know it will get old.

The Women in My Life

I didn't get a chance to do post for mothers day. I am so blessed to have such great women in my life.

Starting first with my mom- who has given me so much, who would do anything for me and taught me the value of independence. Who has become a great friend to me after I was not the best teenager. She is a great example of unconditional love.

My Aunties who have been there for me my entire life and helped mold me into the person I am today and who have also become some of my best friends. Who are some of the greatest examples of strong women, who I strive to be like everyday.

My Nana who I miss terribly every day and who taught me so much about love and life, Who was the most accepting and loving person I ever knew, and who taught me to keep fighting until the very end. I got so many of my good traits from her and I am lucky for that.

My mother in-law who opened her heart to me, who has been the greatest example of commitment and hard work that I have ever known and who approaches everything in life with grace and determination.

My sisters who are my best friends in the world and I share everything with. Who have been around to pick me up when I was down and wipe my tears when I was sad and also to celebrate with me in times of happiness. Who have taught me so much about myself- good and bad and help me better myself everyday. I don't laugh harder with anyone else. :)

To these women and all other other grandmothers, aunts, cousins, sisters in-laws and friends who are always there and love me for who I am- Thank you. I love you all so much!

Great America & Jelly Belly

The day after San Fransisco, we went to Great America amusement park. It was a lot of fun and we got a lot of sun.

The day after that we stopped by the Jelly Belly factory in Fairfield on our way out of town. We had the BEST vacation. I loved every minute of it!


San Fransisco

The day after the big wedding, me, Brett, Alyssa & Kellen left to go out to San Fransisco for the day. First, we went out to Alcatraz Island. It is an island in the middle of the bay that was used as a high security prison until the 1960's. It was really interesting to walk through and learn all about it.

After that we rode in a bike taxi :) from Pier 33 to Pier 39 where the sea lions are.
Then we went out to the Golden Gate Bridge. It was awesome. We walked 1/3 across it and the view was beautiful.

After San Fransisco, We drove south a bit to Half Moon Bay beach and played in the freezing water for a bit.


The Wedding!!

So this past weekend, I photographed my first wedding. I had so much fun doing it! My cousin Todd and Kelsey got married in the Sacramento Temple. It is a beautiful temple and I am so glad that I got to do their pictures.... here are a few.....
more are up on my photo blog.
