So we have been in California visiting Matt's parents. Let me just tell you how wonderful it is to have in-laws that are serving a mission in the San Diego area. Its pretty wonderful. We always have such a wonderful time with them. I am really mad tho because I forgot my camera. But luckily my cute mother in law sent me a few that we took at the beach. Olivia didnt like the sand she hated that it got all over her feet. and then when she saw that it was all over her mom and dads feet she really didnt like that either. after that first day she got more used to it and we bought her a bucket and shovel and she really loved that. It was such a relaxing and enjoyable trip, when the time came to leave we were not ready, but hopefully we will get out there again in October. I also was able to see my cute friend brooke from my mission. It was so good to see her and her cute girls. Now that we are back we have to get serious about some projects around the house. I have been wanting to change the paint forever, but I can t make up my mind when it comes to paint. maybe I will put up some swatches and take a vote if I dont figure it out soon. Thank you Verne and Shirley for letting us stay. you are both so wonderful and we love you so, so, so much.
