I took Ashley to the Orthodontist today, and they were prepared to put braces on her today, But i said. hold it, let me talk to hubby about the cost. It about flipped me over when they told me how much it would cost.. UMMM!!! :-)

I was able to find a payment plan that we could work's like a car payment! Yikes! But in the long run.. Ashley will have beautiful straight teeth!

I was finally able to sleep in for the 1st time today snice it's the first day of summer vacation.. if you guys have any fun and cheap ideas please let me know... :-)

A friend has just invited our family camping next weekend to San Clemente State Beach.. so that should be fun! We are just starting to meet people here. I guess it's a matter of time and patience to get to know people. It was so easy iun Santa Rosa where I knew lots of people.

Today, the orthodontist had a form for me to fill out, and asked about our previous address, and I had to dig deep to remember our old address!! It was scary to see that I'm starting to forget.. Getting old huh??

We went to see the San Diego Temple together as a family a while back, it was beautiful! I can't wait until we can go back again.

We are planning on going to Utah the last week of June to see people and tour SLC with the kids, so that should be fun.

Here's a pic of the San Diego Temple at sunset..

Here's another picture with the lights on.. Cool huh??

What is happening!!! These were washed ashore... Take a look!

Of Course, I had to take a picture of it. There were quite a few washed ashore... Interesting!

We went to the pier where there were a lot of people fishing. It was a nice evening.

Thanks Emily and Chris for helping us set this blog up! Hope I dont get too addicted.. Maybe this will be a good way to chronicle our lives.. and be able to look back at what silly or fun things we've done.

I decided that it'd be cool to have our own blog so that family and friends can check and see what we're up to these days! Seems like life has been a whirlwind.. so wanted to keep connected with our loved ones. Emily and Chris, (Andrew's sister and hubby) were here for a long weekend vacation..We had lots of fun with them. They have a blog, so they helped us get started with this one... Happy reading!!

Here we are shivering on the pier in Newport Beach....
