Nie Nie is Back!!!

Oh my goodness.... So about 4 months ago my mom was telling me about this lady's blog that I HAVE TO READ! So I started reading it.... Her name is Stephanie Nielson and she lived in Arizona... this past August, her and her husband were in a plane crash and she was burned badly. She is in Salt Lake now doing physical Therapy and healing. Her family just moved up here too. It is The most Amazing blog ever! She has such a way with words! The way she talks about her husband is so romantic (she always calls him Mr. Nielson) and you can tell they have the most amazing relationship. She seems like the BEST mom. I feel like I know Stephanie and I admire her so much!
I'm sure tons of you have heard about her, but if you haven't check it out!! It's called Nie Nie Dialogues. My blog has a link to it, so CHECK IT OUT! It will make you smile, laugh and mostly cry.
Welcome Back Nie Nie!! I have missed you.

Our New Addition

So this was our family room 2 days ago.....

And here it is now.....

My parents got a new couch for their basement so we were lucky enough to get their old one! (Which is still pretty new and super nice!) Thank you so much Mom and Dad! We really appreciate all that you do for us! We love you so much!!!

So after cleaning the kitchen, picking up toys about a thousand times, vacuuming, doing laundry, and feeding Miss Bailie, I was a little bored! I got out my curling iron and played with B's hair. This is what it looks like.... (It's my first time doing this to her hair so it doesn't look GREAT, but I think it's adorable.)

The Johnson's

These are our friends that we got to visit in Las Vegas. Jeff, Cora, and Jaydee are such a cute family!

Our Trip!!

Deveren, Bailie and I went out to San Diego to visit a very good friend of ours. Amy moved out there for a great job opportunity and we really wanted to pay her a visit. We drove to Las Vegas on Wednesday and stayed with my friend Cora and her family. Then drove to San Diego Thursday afternoon.
Friday we drove to Oceanside to visit with Deveren's Grandma and Grandpa Borgia. Grandma made soup for us and Grandpa made 'Borgia Dads' (which is a sourdough pancake with either apple or cherry pie filling inside). We had a great time catching up and seeing the AMAZING view of the golf course! Thanks again Grandma and Grandpa! On our way back to Amy's apartment, we went to the San Diego Temple and took some pictures there. It is the most beautiful temple!!
On Saturday we went to the San Diego Zoo!! I have wanted to go there for so long and I think I was more excited than anyone! After the Zoo, we drove to La Jolla Beach.... OH MY GOODNESS! It was so beautiful there!! We have decided that when we retire (and are super rich) we will retire in San Diego.
On Sunday we had to say goodbye to Amy and head back to Cora's house in Vegas. We stayed the night and headed home Monday morning. We had so fun fun!! It was more driving than I would have liked, but it was so much fun seeing friends and family!

Here are some, ok A LOT, of pictures.... I will post pictures of the beach, lunch with Grandma and Grandpa, and pictures of Cora's family that I took later.

The Zoo

Some of Bailie's favorite animals at the zoo

Bailie loved the zoo, but I think I loved it more!

I was so sad because I dropped a big hunk of carmel corn

I love giraffe's

This is us after walking around the HUGE zoo all day long... We are so out of shape!!

Bailie and Daddy... and the Leopard

I like this picture... It's Amy and me in her sunglasses :)

Koala and the baby Koala... So cute
