today after church we walked out and i though hmmm. what a perfect (tiny bit hot) fall day! let's take pictures. so we went up to muller park canyon and a darling building by our house and took some fun family fall pictures. (literally fall) after all our fun lexi took a spill and landed in the tire rim. ouch and funny thing i didn't even mean to take this picture! she was all black from the grease, but all is well now.

we just got back from an amazing trip to newport coast, California. we were there for 8 days. we stay in the Marriot resort just right off the ocean. I need to thank Brandon's parents for the opportunity to stay with them every 6 months in their time share. without them we wouldn't get to do our fun cali trips that often. Next i have to thank my mom for the 4 airplane tickets. we were so lucky to be able to fly for free, and not have to drive the 10 hours. (didn't sound fun being prego) plus any chance payton and lexi can fly on gami's airplanes we'll take 'em! they love to fly. and last but of course not least i need to thank my brothers brock and tyson, and sister megan for sharing time with us to make our cali trip even better,and jon and jin we miss seeing all you guys! we were able to go and visit tyson and megan and their kids aiden and liam at their house and eat a very very DELISOUS cake megan made! then they invited us for a fun cali beach bon-fire! thanks so much everyone for everything what an amazing and relaxing trip!
we were able to go to disneyland for the whole day and california adventure. what a fun time that was. we were there from open to close and the kids enjoyed every minute of it! i was so tired by the time we got back to the condo, but it was worth every smile and laugh! oh and lexi didn't like the characters very much she was terrified, but minney was a good sport and hurry and got a picture with us even though lexi was screaming at the top of her lungs!
we also went to the beach 2 full days and went boogie boarding and body surfing. and yes i did it too even though i'm giant pregnant! we built sand castles and barried uncle chris in the sand, we are a total beach family so any time the chance comes up for us to be beach bums we'll take it! one day we also went to Korea town in L.A. our sister in law is from Korea so we went there to enjoy a fabulous Korean BBQ. Yummy! if you've never had korean bbq you need to try it!
the rest of the time we just enjoyed each other's company and the pool. serious it was a much need vacation for all of us. and now were back in beautiful cold snowy utah. here are some pictures to help you get a small glimps of our trip. we sure are spoiled!
It's for sure football season! Brandon coaches 2 of our nephew's little league football team. He loves getting back in the game. (as much as you can as a coach) it's so fun to watch him coach and seeing all the little guys looking up to him. My favorite part is hearing the funny stories and things the little boys say! oh man they are halarious! payton goes to every practice with brandon and just loves his football time with daddy. he even comes home doing the drills and chants the boys do at practice! oh and don't let me forget Lexi! is she ever a football girl. wow she would rather watch college football on saturday mornings with her daddy then watch cartoons. she loves going to games with him to and will follow brandon all over the feild. I'm not a super football fan, but i love watching the kids and their daddy.
