So in January Jonathan and I took a week trip to Punta Cana in Dominican Repulic. It has been 7 years (since our honeymoon) since we had gone anywhere tropical - we were like little kids in a candy shop!!!
I don't think I could describe my happiness of being on this beach!
Jonathan was never without a virgin drink in his hands. Do you see the gorgeousness of this place...it was a dream come true!
White sand, aqua ocean!
We had way too much fun in the waves. I think we played everyday in them for like 5 hours straight!
Went for a walk along the beach and they have these neat little local shops that are so colorfull and all the locals saying what a beautiful couple you are so you MUST come by their stuff! Oh fun :)

Heading out for our first night
I had so much fun watching the dancing...this lady was the choreographer of all the shows...she was the best so I had to get a pic with her...
Kissy face :p
Look at that water - so amazing!

We were sunburnt, but loving it!

All the walk ways at night were lit up...it was really nice
More beach...and more silly pics of me :)

This was on one of our last nights and it was cloudier but it made such a cool atmosphere...like twilight or something cool...so we took tons of pictures.
Pretty neat...
Jonathan being so cute....I was posing like crazy and he was like, "what am I going to do, I can't pose all sexy..." so he did this =)
Love this one!

Look at the clouds and the water and the sand...just so beautiful!
Another before we go out shot...
That is my leg....it looks like it could have been photo shopped in....but nope I was there! So gorgeous!!
**more sighs**

Our last night watching the show

Their costumes were fun

So on our last night...how appropriate...they had a dance on the beach!! OH it was SO fun! I wish I wasn't so tired cause I would have stayed forever....but we sure had fun!
Jonathan busting a move! (p.s. don't mind the people in the background....yep, I guess everyone was having fun ;)) Anyway, we just loved our trip and getaway. It was such a nice break. I did miss our kids despratly...a little too much, I cried almost everyday. But it was so nice for Jonathan and I, and our kids were in good hands with my sister and their cousins. We were all so happy to see each other again :)

Part 2

Well...darn Blogspot, got it all confused. I did this huge long Part 2 blog...but on a different blog....don't even ask me how that is possible. I would redo it all...but I am barely good and doing one, so I don't think that will be happening. So if you do want to check it out, just click on this link below:


I am going to have to be way more thinking with my brain when I actually do this next time ;)

The BIG Catch up - Part 1

Ok so here we go....the first three are the last nice days of summer, we went to Riley park with Papa. I just love that place. Such memories and so fun! Now is our Anniversary. I suprised Jonathan and we went horse back riding and white water rafting!

So the white water rafting was the funnest and scareiest thing we have ever done. We actually got to go on a more advanced one then we signed up for, cause the other one was closed. So there was this huge wave we took on and everyone else before us were fine and after us...but oh no..our boat goes on it's side, and I thought we were gonner's no joke. Cause I had this huge undertoe right at my face and if we flipped I was sure we would have been stuck under. One guy did flip but he was ok and we rescued him. It was crazy...but cause we didn't fall in, it was SO fun! Then we went to this part callled the devil's toilet bowl where you get stuck and keep going round and round...it is actaully sooo fun. Anyway, it was a great way to celebrate our seven years! Love you hon!

Just too cute for words :)

So this was in September we went to Sycome lake. The kids had so much fun with their cousins.

Then it was off to Calaway for a few more times before the cold. The girls just LOVE it!

So not for me...

This one is soo fun...yah I know, I am a wimp!
Taylor hanging out

Ya, this is a ride the GIRLS went on....I couldn't believe it. I hate this ride. They loved it!

Oh now here is the most important part of my catch up. The girls first day of school!! I can't even believe I am saying this...of course it's just preschool and it was only 2 days a week in the afternoon. But it was sooo huge for me. Oh how have things changed in only a few months....that will have to be in the next post.
So these are all Brianna first. The girls were so cute...posing. I am posting alot of pictures. Because this is very special to me, and because no one reads this anymore, it is more for our records.

Now Elayna's turn :)

My two beautiful girls!

They got to have special ice cream after their first day!

I love these two...and they love each other more than words can say.

And Grandma and Papa Martin's house. Sporting their new outfits.

I was so lucky to be able to go to General Relief Society Meeting with my Sister and Mother!!! For so long I have gone without them. So special, and we had such a wonderful time.

My sweet Brianna, has just not good eyes and so now we have to do this patch over one eye to strengthen the other...but she won't even wear that now. She sure looks cute though!
