Trip to Cali and Father's Day

Last week we went to California with our friends the Langs. We stayed in the Laguna area, which is our favorite spot in California. It was a quick trip, but we had a blast and beautiful weather. On Friday we went to Laguna Beach and spent the day on the beach. Hollyn loved jumping waves and playing in the sand. Paige had her first experience with the ocean. She wasn't too thrilled about the cold water, but she did love playing on the blanket and trying to eat sand. We had a great time playing on the beach and walking around the cute shops in downtown Laguna. That night we went to Spectrum mall for dinner and shopping. I will have to say this is one of my favorite malls. It has everything and it's outdoors.
Saturday we went to Venice to walk the crazy boardwalk and to play at the beach. Hollyn road the boogie board with me for the first time. She did so good. At first I had her do it by herself, but she kept falling off the board, so then we did it together. We caught some great waves. That night we went back to Spectrum for some more shopping and Wahoo Tacos. YUM! Dan also took Hollyn on the huge Farris Wheel. She was a little nervous, but ended up loving it. Sunday we celebrated Father's Day for Dan and then headed home.
A quick shout out to Dan. He is an incredible father. He loves our girls and would do anything for them. He lights up when he gets home from work or school and Hollyn is hiding for him and waiting for him to find her and give her loves and tickles. He wants the best for our girls and works hard to provide for them. He honors the priesthood and blesses our home with it. Most importantly he is my best friend. I can never stay mad at Dan because he can make me laugh no matter how hard I try not to. We love you Dan!

Hollyn's Musical Theater Performance

Arizona Fun

We have been in AZ for just about a month now and having a blast. I have been busy teaching swimming lessons and Dan is keeping busy with his clerkship. Hollyn has been having a blast spending time with cousins and friends. She is also taking lots of fun classes. Hollyn took an art class, she is taking a cooking class, hip hop class, tumbling class and just had a recital for her musical theater class with her friend Crew. The class was for two weeks Monday through Friday for an hour. She loved it! Hollyn loves to sing and dance around the house all day so it was nice to see her be able to do it on stage. Hopefully I can put on a part of her performance. She was so excited to perform and told my mom she wished she could do it everyday. We love you Hollyn! Thanks for all the family who came to support her.
Paige is growing up so fast. She is now pulling herself up and standing up on everything. Just last week I went to get her up from her nap and she was standing up in the pack-n-play. She has ceased to amaze me. Paige also loves to get into everything she shouldn't, but best of all she loves to smile. She really is a great baby.
