Our Trip to Newport

So this is going to be the longest post ever. We just got back from a week in Newport Beach. It was so much fun! We got to spend the week with my family and loved every minute we had with them. I am going to tell about our week with pictures that we took.

This is me on our balcony. We had a great view of the ocean. It was beautiful and we loved the resort.

The boys enjoyed the cold water all week long. I only got in the ocean once. I enjoy being warm. They boogie boarded and body surfed all week long.

The kids buried Josh. They dug a huge hole and he climbed right in.

We were the frisbee golf champions! It came down to sudden death three times in a row but we came through and won!

This is my cousin Rachel with her baby Dylan. He is one of my boyfriends. I love him. He was the chubbiest, cutest, best little baby ever. He is always happy and is the yummiest babe in the world. I wish he was my baby.

This is my other boyfriend Jake. He is my little buddy and I hope our little boys are half as cool as he is. He is such a stud. He is only 21 months old and he can count to 10 in English and Spanish. He is so smart, he has the best vocabulary and remembers everyone's name. We played all week long. We dug for sand crabs, played catch, played catch and hunted for creepy crawly things. I love little Jakey so much!

Josh and Jake had a blast together. Jake makes Josh really excited to have sons. He will be the best dad.

My good friend from BYU, Pete, came to one of our family BBQ s. It was fun to see him again and to catch up after a couple of years.

Me and Mari playing at the pool.

This is kind of funny, we were all reading the first Twilight book. I am getting eager to finish the series.

My parents took us to Pageant of the Masters. I don't really know how to describe it so when I think of a way I'll tell you all about it. For now just know that it was really interesting.

Me and Josh at the beach.

We got to play on Balboa Island. My parents and Linds went on the never ending Ferris wheel ride. We shopped and enjoyed a beautiful night out.

We went on an evening harbor cruise. I really hope we can live in Newport one day. We saw some of the most AMAZING homes ever. These homes were right on the water with the huge multi-million dollar yachts parked in front of them. It made me quite jealous.

We played pool volleyball.

We had a ton of family BBQ s and made smores.

Here is Claire. She is so cute! She is always happy and always looks surprised. I want to squish her.

Lindsay and I at the beach.

Rachel said...

My favorite is the Twilight picture. That is awesome. And now my curiosity is piqued about the Pageant of the Masters! You'll have to tell us more...

Shari said...

Looks like so much fun!! It is great living so close to the beach-we really love it!! I love your family-it was fun to see all of them through your pics!!

Leslie said...

Your pictures are so cute! I'm only wishing I was in the kind of shape that you are... *sigh* Oh well. :)

Yes! I did get the flowers and they're FABULOUS! I love, love, love them! I got them the day after you put the comment on my blog about getting them.

Only thing I noticed that was an easy fix, is that the ribbon on the actual clip tends to fray a little and with little kids wearing them, they yank em out and pull on the little thread so it gets all unravelly (word?). I fixed it witha lighter though. Just running the ribbon through the flame to 'seal' it so it wouldn't come undone again. :) Easy enough. :) But Yes, I love them, and yes, I'll get pictures up with the girls wearing them! Thanks again!

Wow, darling kiddos!!! You are gonna be such a great mommy someday! I love it! Are you liking Twilight??? I just finished the series and am excited for #4 to come out. Not what you would call serious reading, but definitely fun!

Hey Courtney,
