Keeping Busy

We went to a really cool restaurant called North Woods Inn. It was so fun to be with family and we had a babysitter for the little ones so we could eat in peace :) We love our little ones for sure, they just don't do the best in restaurants at this age.

We went to the LA Zoo. Jackson had a blast! His favorite animals were the giraffe and elephant.

Josh went to Yosemite with the Young Men. Josh hiked all the way up half dome, it was really cool. Jackson and I missed him a ton since it was the first time we were away from Josh for so long. Jackson survived the first couple of days, but the last 3 days he was asking for Daddy non stop. These pictures can't even really capture how beautiful the trip was for Josh. We hope to go back there soon as a family.

Carter & Don came down and we went to a Dodger game. It was awesome because we saw 2 home runs and a fight in the stands. It doesn't get any better than that!

Josh went surfing for the first time in his life! He was AWESOME!!! I couldn't believe how fast he caught on. We were told by a lifetime surfer that Josh is a natural. It was so fun to watch him. I couldn't hold Jackson back from the water for too long, he was constantly trying to get out there with Josh on the surf board. So Josh finally grabbed Jackson and let him do a little surfing. Jackson is fearless when it comes to water. He jumps off the diving board at his grandparents house and has no problem running into the wide open ocean.

Grandpa Alexander Clawson McMaster

Earlier this morning Jen and I received word that my maternal Grandfather was in the hospital--probably for the last time. Well this evening at 17:30, his nearly 92 years of life passed on leaving a legacy for his posterity. He is my hero and has been like a second father to me.

The brightest part of his passing, at least for him, is being reunited with his eternal companion, Grandma. I am sure they are having a joyous reunion; one that I hope I will be worthy to attend when time comes.

On the other hand, we morn his passing. We also pray for Grammie (Grandpa's second wife). She is an amazing grandma. I consider my self greatly blessed to have three wonderful Grandmas, since most only have two.

I have included the DVD slide show Jen and I made for Grandpa's 91st birthday.
God Bless!

Things that make Josh and I laugh :)

It Finally Happened:

Finally.... someone has been able to photograph the pot at the end of the rainbow.


I have been tagged by the sexiest South African I know, Leith Christensen.
I am suppose to write 6 random things about myself, so here it goes:

1. I could eat Japanese food every day for the rest of my life and be perfectly happy.

2. I knew the moment I met Josh I was going to marry him, but didn't tell him that for almost 2 years.

3. Jackson is the first blood relative I have ever known.

4. I didn't start wearing makeup till I was 23.

5. I was adopted

6. I have super curly, frizzy hair that I cannot stand to look at, so I always straighten it.

Nashville Star Finalists!

Josh, Jackson and I totally got hooked on Nashville Star. We are so happy that Melissa Lawson and Gabe Garcia made it to the final 2! Josh and I were leaning a little bit towards Gabe winning, but we are so happy for Melissa! I totally started crying when Melissa's husband and 5 little boys came on stage to celebrate with her. I am so happy America put Gabe and Melissa in the top 2! I cannot wait to hear their music on the radio!!
