Summer Lovin'

Here you go Margo. :)
Summer summer summer. Where would I be without you? It's been a crazy, work-filled couple of months. Right now I'm in California, thank heavens. It's been a great break already.

Meet my cousins. They're so awesome! One of my favorite families of all time. We got here on Friday night. We went swimming with the cousins and had dinner at the pool. The next day, we went to the beach!

Can I just say how much I love the beach? It's fabulous. We spent the afternoon at the beach, then went to Cafe Rio for dinner.
Sunday we went to church, then hung out for a little while, ate lunch, packed up, and left! We got to Indio around 7. The fam got together for ping-pong. It was just Kyle (my little brother) and I with some of the extended family. Where did the other members of my family go, you may ask? Well, the answer is simple.
I found them watching the season finale of The Bachelorette with cousins.
Oh boy.
I've never seen The Bachelorette before, but let me tell you--it's a dramatic event with my family. For example:
Naturally, Sam was so distraught over the possibility that Emily MIGHT pick Arie over Jef that she had her knees to her chest in the fetal position. I think she was also on the verge of tears.
By the time I got to bed, Rachel had already shut and locked the door to the room we're sharing. Yes folks, I said locked. So naturally, I spent the night on the couch. For sleeping on the couch, it was actually a decent night's sleep. I highly recommend these couches to you, they're rather comfortable.
Anyway, today has been spent swimming, sweating like a pig while working out--can they keep the workout room ANY hotter?, swimming, relaxing, swimming, shopping, swimming, telling my mom happy birthday, swimming...we do a lot of swimming here! Of course, can you blame us? After all, look at the kind of paradise we're staying in.
Gorgeous, no? :)


  1. What is this?? You dedicate a post to Margo but not me? Rude.

  2. Haha she requested one! I never use my blog but she wanted me to actually start writing on it, so I dedicated it to her. :P

  3. I'm just glad you hadn't abandoned your blog. Have fun in Cali...and soak up all the west coast sun you can. It's the BESSSSST. Will you be home on Sunday? We are having a post-camp mtg at Pam's about 4:15 if you are back. :)

  4. I'll be back! Looking forward to it! :)
