On Saturday I met up with my sister Heather, her husband Rob and three kids Aleksia, Cooper and Ella (three of the CUTEST kids in the world)!!!!! We watched a dinosaur movie in 3-d at Thanksgiving Point and it was a lot of fun. I enjoy spending time with my family because I feel like I've missed a lot in the years I've been in Texas. Hopefully one day they'll remember that I am their favorite aunt and would watch them whenever I could!!!!! This was a sandcastle that was there, nothing spectacular but just an excuse to get a picture with Aleksia and Cooper!!
On Sunday we had an awesome bbq at my parent's house and a lot of the family was able to come. Robbie's dad and grandparents were there and both sets of my grandparents were there and also my other grandma plus my sisters anyone else I forgot. I'm not sure what Aleksia was doing but she just sat way out on the grass with her baby just by herself!! Little kids can just entertain themselves so easily. Sometimes I wish I were that young again to not have to have a worry in the world!!
Isn't he sooo cute??? He's always so happy and always smiling and he gave me lots of good hugs while I was there! My sister and brother-in-law always have the cutest kids! They seriously could be on the cute kids competion and for sure win!!! I think they're eyes are gorgeous. They're like a dark dark brown! Anyways, I'm sure you don't want to hear my ramblings on my nieces and nephews!
After we ate a delicious meal we got an awesome game of volleyball going!! I think we played like 4 games. I think that we lost every game (does that have anything to do with me being on the team???) I sure hope not. But that's one of the things I wanted to do most was to make sure Robbie was able to experience a family volleyball game and enjoy it. There was a lot of laughter and jokes and just good times!!!
This is Ella. She's one of the happiest babies I've ever met. It was funny because when my brother Jeff would talk she would just light up and get a huge smile on her face. I don't know if it's cuz he has a deep voice or what but it was so cute.
So anyways, I had a good time with my family and Robbie's family. On Monday Robbie, his uncle Rich and me went fishing to a lake in Grantsville and didn't get one bite!! Man it was a bummer. I sure wish we would've caught something. Oh well. We drove up a canyon and they were both able to shoot a 22 for a little bit and I think Robbie really enjoyed that. I still just wish that we would've caught a fish!!
Later that day me, Robbie, Robbie's dad and my mom went and saw Ironman and it was better than I thought it would be. I still just really enjoy the chic flics and would prefer those over the action ones but oh well.
Then we went out that night with one of my mission companions and really good friend, Lisa. It was quite a fun night. I think overall the trip was exhausting. I don't know for sure why but it was. I think it took me like 2 minutes every night to fall asleep which was good. I love seeing family and hanging out with them. It was good to hang out with Robbie's family some more and get closer to them as well!!! I just wish that when you come back from vacation you have like a day or two to recoup!!! Oh well.
(Just a little sidenote.....Robbie and my anniversary is on Monday!!! That's just crazy to think that we've been married 2 years!!! Wow it seems just like yesterday that we got married. I'm sure people who have been married like 10 or 15 years are like 2 years is nothing....it just is kinda crazy!!!!)
