Pee Wee Wrestling...

You gotta LOVE pee wee wrestling!! This year it was extra fun because cousins wrestled against each other and so did brothers! It's a good thing they are all still friends!

Better Late than Never...

I know this is an extremely late post...but I still have to post about it.

The end of July we headed to Shelton, WA to visit Brandon's parents...and YES we took ALL of the kids!! It took us 3 days to get there and by the time we got there I was going crazy wanting out of the car (and it had nothing to do with my kids driving me crazy...they were actually REALLY good!) We did have a blast on our way up though getting to drive through the Redwoods, getting to visit with the Sulzer family, and getting to drive along the coast!! We saw some beautiful country!!

The kids being good in the car!

The kids playing dress up at the Sulzer's house!

We had a blast at Brandon's sister's house and enjoyed where they lived.

The kids had so much fun with Grandpa's animals

While we were there we got to go to their ward party which was held at Zions Camp. It's owned by the church and was absolutely AMAZING!!!

We of course had to go to the beach at least one of the days while we were there. I thought the beach was suppose to be sunny and warm...but boy was I WRONG...but that still didn't keep the kids out of the water!

One of my favorite parts of the trip was getting to meet up with my long lost brother, Aron Johnson. Aron lived with my family for 3 years back in high school and I haven't seen him since he got home from his mission like 13 years ago. It was good to see him and meet one of his daughters!!

Aron, Abigail, and I

Of course one of the main reasons we went on our trip was for Brandon's sister Penny's wedding. We were glad to be a part of it all!! We love you Penney and Brian!

Another highlight of the trip was getting to be there for Rich's (Brandon's brother-in-law) Baptism. We are so excited for Their family!!

We had a great time and made lots of memories!!! We love and miss Brandon's family that lives so far away!!!!
