Lots of Updates

So, the past few weeks have been a little busy... sorry for not posting in a while. We were in Salt Lake this past weekend for Steve's brothers wedding. The wedding was beautiful and it was so much fun to see family and friends. A few days prior to leaving Steve and I went to the zoo and aquarium... it's been forever since I went to the zoo. For St. Patrick's day I cooked a green dinner. I always thought the whole green food on St. Patrick's day was kind of weird, but I really had fun with it. Here are some pics/videos from the past few weeks:

This is my niece Emma... she is soooo much fun!

The kids love to jump on the tramp. I love how their stands on end because of the static.It's so hard to get kids to look at the camera at the same time.

This is a video of my nephew Jacob... he is so adorable. He loves to talk, but it is all nonsense... I love it!

The kids love their uncle Steve.

This is Jacob in his jumping swing. He loves jumping around.

My dad with Jacob.

This is my sister Abby. She has an incredible musical talent. She made up this song about the 5 food groups for her nutrition class... it's pretty funny.

Here is Steve's brother, Richard, with his beautiful wife Shannon. They got married in the Salt Lake Temple this past weekend. We are so happy for them!

Before going up to Salt Lake, Steve and I went to the zoo. Here are a few pics:For St. Patrick's day, I made this green dinner. Although it looked kind of strange, I think it tasted pretty good.

Disneyland Getaway

So, it had been a while since Steve and I had a trip to Disneyland (we were both in high school). Since this destination is only 5 1/2 hours away, we thought it would be a fun trip since Steve is on his spring break right now. We stayed at the Anaheim Marriot... it was beautiful, but it's too bad that nice hotels don't have a continental breakfast ( I think an omlet was nearly $13 !). We spent 3 days there. On Saturday we met up with some of our friends, Kristin & Brian and John & Liz.What is a Disney trip without a classic picture with Mickey Mouse?Lightning McQueen...Me with my 3D bug eye glasses... quite the fashion statement.Steve playing the organ at Mickey's house... he had way to much fun with this picture.

This was at "Minnie's House" in Toon Town. One of my favorite rides is the Tower of Terror. About a year ago my sister Abby went to Disneyland and recorded a video on her phone of the ride... it was so funny to hear her scream. I decided to do the same. I had no idea a screamed this much... maybe I was just nervous about losing my camera on the ride. (warning: you may want to turn down the volume on your speakers if you view the 2nd video.)

This picture was taken while waiting in line for Midway Mania... it was so much fun (one of Steve's favorites).The only downside to the whole trip was the expensive food. Can you believe this, $5.99 for a peanut butter and jelly sandwhich!
