Our Hike and Washington

A couple weeks ago, Justin took me hiking up to the Timpanogos Caves. It was really fun. I have never been there before, and I would say its a nice little hike. The caves themselves were awesome. Really cold in there, but its crazy what nature does over the years! ANyway, the pictures aren't too great, but go there in person and its really pretty inside. ANyways, it was nice to just take some time in the day and hang out with my best bud! Oh, while we were hiking up, the signs say that if you hear falling rocks to run... well we heard what sounded like was a huge boulder falling right on top of us, and did we run? No, not really, we just kinda stood there looking up like a cartoon, waiting for it to fall on us, anyway we finally saw it and stepped out of the way just in time.. it wasnt quite a boulder but it was a very big rock coming at a very fast pace :)
Wednesday morning at like 4:00 a.m. Justin took Laci and my sis-in-law Kara and Me to the airport. He dropped us off and we were headed to Washington to go to our friend Jana's wedding and to hang out with my fam. I was super sad Justin wasnt coming and I was about to be gone for 10 days. That was the first time we ever were away from each other overnight, so it was really weird and lonely and I missed him. ANyway, so we rode the Airplane and my dad picked us up. Then Ashley met up with us and we took the ferry over to Seattle for the day.
Yeah so we rode the ferry over to Seattle, walked around, shopped a little, and then Ran back to the ferry but who cares cause we missed it, so we waited and waited for the next one. After we got home I dont even remember what we did cause we were all so tired. Pretty sure we fell asleep. The next morning we woke up and got ready and went to the Seattle Temple for Jana and Nate's wedding! IT was AWeSOMe! SHe looked so pretty and they are so happy!

SO everything was great! Her reception was on a lake and they rode off on a boat to their hotel that was on the water~! Awesome huh?! So then we just went home and to sleep again. The rest of the trip was kind of a blurr but fun. WE walked around old POrt Orchard where I live and went to a park and looked at all the boats and antique shops and stuff.
Sunday, I took Laci to the airport and then hung out with my little sis Larisa! I love her... and cant wait for her to come down to school next year!
So I think my family all felt sorry for me and realized how much I was bummin' around the house without Justin, so they decided to suprise me and flew him out for the rest of the 5 days there! I was SOOOOOO happy! It really didnt turn into a suprise because, well, nobody in my family is good at keeping a secret, but they tried and thats all that matters!
WE just hung out, went on drives, went to Old TOwn Gig Harbor and ate lunch and walked around and had some ice cream. My Aunt Tara and her family came and so did my Grandma and Grandpa the last day we were there! IT was fun to see them. WE went and watched a 12 stake Dance Festival that my mom was very busy with all year! Turned out great! Like 2500 youth all dancing together! Crazy maddness but it was awesome! Now it's good to be home. Everything with the baby is going swell. We can't wait for her to come out!

Its been a While...

SO it has been a while since I've updated this. The rest of June was fun and finally summer outside. Justin and I traveled down to St. George to go to Justin's old mission companion and roommate, John's Wedding. The St George Temple is awesome! We have just been working and playing since then. Justin also got 2 of the 3 pins out of his finger from his surgery.... wahoo. Now his nail is just falling off and it looks even more painful then it ever did, but apparently thats not the case so thats good. The 4th of July weekend was fun, relaxing, and just spent the day with the Wirigs, then we watched the Thanksgiving Point Fireworks. Oh Micheal, Justin's youngest brother, got his mission call to Denmark!!! We are way excited for him, just feel bad he has to wait all the way until November to report to the MTC... eventhough we are VERY NOT sad he will be around that much longer... we love that he always is willing to go swimming, play games, or just whatever with us! On monday I had my Ultrasound to find out what I was having... I mean obviously it was a baby, just didn't know if it was a boy or a girl. So 20 weeks now, we know. Justin and I were sure it was a boy going in there, but then we were wrong. We are having a little baby GIRL!!! YIPPEEEE. I love girls.. I mean I love boys too, but I'm really excited its a girl. So, now its more real. I feel her moving everyday... and she tap dances on my bladder.... so I spend about 90% of my time in our pretty bathroom :) Everything is healthy and its the COOLEST thing to see your baby right there on the tv. I can't wait until November! Anyway, thats about it. I know it has arms, but they arent to be found in ANY of the pictures... I should have asked the lady
