family, family, family!

I wanted to get better at blogging this summer and that hasn't exactly happened as planned. I've been really busy having a really fun time in Cedar! I've been working, taking summer classes and reading textbooks like a straight up FOOL! Let's ignore that part of my summer though. We've gone on hikes, played on the mountain, saw The Little Mermaid at Tuachaun, done photoshoots, went rollerskating, tie dyed, etc! We all like to "CRUISE & JAM" in Alex's car with her new sound system! Wooo! Your car loves my workout/remix/techno music just as much as you do, Alex! ;)   We have tons of random/wonderful games and adventures with all of the cousins every single day and I LOVE IT!! Nothing makes me more happy :)  

I've taken a bunch of pictures & here are some of my favorites!
Some of the cousins playing on Father's Day! After dancing and playing games in the front yard, we decided we would do a little family picture.
Overlooking the city with Greyson & Kenn
First house in Cedar to have electricity! My grandparents are celebs. 

Rollerskating/blading crew!
We're a loving family.. :) haha! 

But more exiting than all of this... 

Jenn got her mission call on June 9, 2011! She is going to Omaha, Nebraska and serving at the Winter Quarters Historical Site!! SOOO AWESOME!  She leaves in one month (July 20th) and I'll definitely be a sad lady. She is my best friend and I'd be okay keeping her for myself but dang, it blows my mind to think of how amazing she is going to be in the mission field!  She is the PERFECT balance of being fun, nice and goofy yet serious and very spiritual. I love it.  She's awesome.  I'll miss her. I'm really excited for her!! The end!     :)

This picture is four years old, but we still love dressing up and making up dances! (and dressing other people up...)

I'm definitely her #1 (and most obsessive) fan!
Love you Jenn, Janny, Janet, Genesis, Genevieve, Jennifer and last but not least.. JJTMS!!

oh so fab!

1. I'm in Cedar City, Utah and loving it. :)
2. My sister Alex is in Spain and loving it.
3. My brother Addison left to go to Indiana and then to Iraq yesterday..not sure if he is quite "loving it"
4. My sister Jenn will soon be going on a mission for our church for 1.5 years!! Eeeee!! SO KEWL!

Our family is quite adventurous lately! Here is what I have been up to lately...

I got to hang out with my good friend David Meeks before he left for the MTC to serve an LDS Mission in Colorado on June 1st! We met at EFY in 2007 and after four years,  I definitely consider him one of my best friends.  We did some go-karts with his family and then said goodbye for the next two years. He'll be a great missionary!

I got a new CTR ring and I'm obsessed.  It's so fun having something different to see on my finger and smile at! My friend Marcy had it and it was love at first sight. I know I might be a little bit too excited about it, but I just really like it! Yayyyy!!

 The sunrise was extremely good looking on the way to Provo to get Greyson from EFY!
   Happy to see each other!

 Provo Temple! 

 South Jordan Temple!

 The beeeautiful Kendra Battin! It was so great seeing her and catching up for a little bit!

 This is my big brother Addison. He left yesterday to start his journey to Iraq and we'll all miss him lots!! Everyone better appreciate the people fighting for our country or  I'll beat them up.  It was extremely sad seeing him and all the other men leave their families behind. It was a cry fest and isn't something I would want to repeat. Take care Troop 222!! <3

 Just having fun with some of my cousins! I'm loving spending time with my family in UT!! 

I'm getting a bit nervous/excited/anxious/EXCITED/scared/restless/excited for Jenn's mission call to come!! I just want to know where she is going!! I feel like it is me getting the call. hahaha! Like always, I'm sorry for being a really boring and dumb blog writer/poster/blogger. Even if Jenn is my only fan, it's well worth it. I love her.

ALSO-  I really love this song!! It is really fun to dance around to and I hope you challenge me on that! haha! Have a wonderful day!  SMILE! :)
