From Aspen...notice her cute picture of daddy...and her interpretation of her name (If you look closely you can see all the letters)!!
We decided to go out for lunch at Joe's Crab Shack with the kids. On our way out I realized I forgot my camera...and Joey's response was that my blogging would go on with out pictures of Father's Day! He just doesn't understand, so unfortunately I don't have any pictures from this day :( Anyways after lunch we headed over to my Dad's house to hang out for a while and then we went to Joey's parent's house for a BBQ.
I ordered Joey's medals for him that he received from his time in the Marine's. We had to order them and get them professionally mounted...so hopefully we will get them soon! I wasn't very prepared this year...so he didn't get to open up his gift :( We are making him a shadow box with his Marine memorabilia, and his medals will be a nice finishing touch!!
Joey is an awesome father and a wonderful husband! He does so much for our family and although I probably don't tell him often enough...I really appreciate all that he does! We love you Joey and hope that you had a Happy Father's Day!
Last Saturday the kids and I drove to Orem to see my friend Tara and her cute family! We also met up with our friend and college roommate Christine! It was so great to catch up with both of them!! It had been way too long since we had all been together. Orem was having a parade and fireworks for what they call their Summerfest. Tara's cute house was right on the parade route so we had front row seating! The kids had so much fun watching all the floats and catching all the candy! Aspen especially loved the "princess" floats!! Tara's little boy Aiden was so excited when he caught the toilet paper from the Costco truck! Her kids are so cute! Thanks again Tara...and we definitely need to get together again soon!

4. Post the 5th sentence on your blog.
I just started reading this book on Monday and I haven't been able to put it down. I'm hoping to finish it tonight!! I have to agree with most everyone that I thought it was very weird at first...it is so different than her Twilight Series. But after like the first 100 pages or so...I was totally hooked! If you haven't read it and you want to read a good love story, I highly suggest it!
I tag... Marcie, Autumn, Katie, Tara, Lis, Shauna and Melanee (I know that's more than 5 people) and anyone else who's interested!
