Tonz of Fun in the Sun!

Well hello! It has been a long time yet again! :) Whoopsie. But I promise to make this a nice long post! Alot has been going on, I have been thinking about our blog alot but I just haven't gotten enough time! Dangit. But here is what's been going on in our part of town! :) Michael's brother Johnny and his wife Kelly came for a visit this summer! (They have lived the last year in Texas!) It was the first time in awhile the fam has been together! It was so much fun to spend time and have the whole family there!

Michael took the camera and then asked if I WANTED ONE! (While holding the baby) He just happened to get my death look on film.
This is a pic of all of the grandkids. It took so much time to get them to hold still long enough!
This is Gavin! He is such a doll. He will put Dustin's binky in his mouth but if no one is watching he will just take it out (even if Dustin is crying) until someone was watching! :) So funny.
Gavin. Such a cutie.
This is Tiana. She is such a beautiful girl. She has such a spunky personality!
This is the Original Fam!
Dustin. It was so fun to be around a little baby!...Hint Hint to two specific girls named Brittany. :)
I'm sure by now you guys know Juliette! :)

I wasn't joking about the binkie!
Holdin Dustin!
As most of you probably know, my family takes turns cooking on Sundays! It has made for many a wonderful meal! Michael and I made one of my absolute favorites! Kabobs! Not just any kabobs, steak, chicken, and shrimp! Yum!
Dad displaying the goods.
I know right. Amazing.
Mom at dinner. We also grilled pineapple! Dad had the idea to roll it in brown sugar so we did half and half. Michael and I decided from now on we will always roll it in brown sugar! Mmm Good!
And then we made Mint Brownies with Andee's Mint Chunks! Let's just say we all gained like 30 pounds after that day!
Michael has been on this crazy eating healthy phase. I guess it is a good thing. He found this halibut recipe online that was supposed to be really healthy and really wanted to make it. By the time we both got home and started making it we realized it had to marinade for 2 hours. Poor Michael had his little heart set on making his good healthy dinner so we just snacked and had a way late dinner so he could still make it!
Britt A and I have made a goal to make time to re kindle our friendship! So I went up on day and we laid out and chatted! It was so much fun. There is nothing better than a good friend and some nice warm sun!
Michael and Dallin joined us for some donut falls hiking!
We figured we probably burned like 10 calories on our hike so we needed to get our blood sugar back up.....LEATHERBY'S! Dallin may have gone a bit overboard! He really did eat almost all of that! CRAZY!
Michael and I shared a brownie thing. It was pretty good...but Michael was still hungry! Luckily, Dallin had a few bites he shared with him!
24th OF JULY!
We weren't sure if Michael was going to be able to make it! :)
Luckily he did!
We played some hilarious games of Volleyball! That is like my new favorite thing! If anyone ever wants to play just say the word! :) We had so much fun and laughed so hard!

For fireworks after we all grabbed chairs to bring down to the street...What do ya know. Here comes dad rolling down the driveway in Zsa's chair! Silly dad. We all had a good laugh about it. He had Todd Tolbert convinced he was seriously injured!
Yay for America!
Me and Britters!
So Britt and I had plans to do anothe session of laying out but we had to cancel our plans. It ended up being amazing though because instead I got to go watch her and Dal take wakeboarding lessons from a pro! Getting a tan is way better in a boat!:) Thanks for letting me tag along. It really was alot of fun.
Before we headed out!
So I got to give a little shout out to my work buddy Scott! Whoot whoot! Michael and I were in Bountiful getting my Mazda worked on and we got some hunger pains! Luckily I remembered Scott and Tina always talking about an amazing Mexican Restaurant in Bountiful! Let me just tell you people...AMAZING! I think it was called Loreana's! It was SO good. Better than Red Iguana, better than any Mexican Restaurant. And the best part was that it was way inexpensive! It was like $6 and that was almost the most expensive thing on the menu!
The 2nd Best thing! The Size of the plates!

Just a little tidbit in case you didn't notice! Almost all of our pics were the right way this time! I might be getting the hang of this after all! :)

Alot has been going on in our lives! It has been full of excitement, fun, and tonz of laughter! I am so blessed to have such amazing family and friends!

20th Birthday!
1 Year Anniversary!

Until Next Time...
