New Job

Sooo everyone is pretty lame at this. Leave it up to me to rejuvenate it... Again. So BYU is in full swing so that's keeping me busy, as well as my new job! I got a job as a mentor at a boys' ranch for troubled youth. The boys are 13-17 and have become my family away from family. I love going into work and helping these guys become better men. Other than this stuff nothing is really new, still living with the ever-entertaining great grandparents (yes I'm taking care of them settle down) and doin my thing!

Keep (start) blogging!!

Brady at BYU

Well, our family has said goodbye to our eldest. :( I spent most of this week with Brady in Utah. We had dinner with Michelle and Matt, saw Lisa's sister, and hung out with Kevin and Angie and kids. We saw Grandma and 3 (about a 10 minute conversation), and one of the highlights was running errands and pounding grub at the Training Table with Kyle. It was hard to say goodbye in Brady's dorm room--the tears started flowing as I thought of how much Brady has meant to our family. I know he's not dead, but it still feels weird. :) Anyway, we're excited for him to be on his own and begin his college career. Love to everyone on this crazy blog.

Newport Beach Festivities

So another successfull year at the beach! Here are some fun pics of everyone having a good time in the water and sand in good ol' Newport Beach! Everyone had a good time and of course memories were created that will last a lifetime. Sorry to all those who couldn't make it, you missed a good time! We got to all hang out, see Cade play at a little Mexican restaurant, and the adults had a fun night of the Newlywed Game. The entire photo album is up on my (Kyle's) facebook so if you wanna check those out feel free!! Love to all! Keep blogging!!

I don't really have anything exciting to say except that I'm getting married! Just kidding but I do have a date with a guy (who let's just say I'm not sure he likes girls) tomorrow so that seems pretty promising. I probably shouldn't be posting that in a blog in case he reads it - oh well it's not like he knows about this blog. I'm not sure which is worse a gay guy or a pill popper.
I decided to join our stake choir and I am so excited because one of the songs we are singing is Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing (the same arrangement the Mo Tab sings). It gives me chills. And we just found out that a general authority will be there because our stake presidency is getting re-organized. So it will be an amazing experience!
I love the picture of Tanner at the MTC. It's crazy. He's a young man. I know he will be a great missionary. I told him that when he got back I would be married and would have 1 kid. I best!
I'm still looking to buy a house but I really want to stay in my ward so I'm trying to be patient. I found one that I love but an investor swooped it up so hopefully it will be back on the market in the next 30 days.
I can't believe Edge is a dad. Little Chase is so cute! I'm so excited to be his aunt!
I can't wait for the beach! No work for over a week, just relaxing, and laughing. I wish everyone could be there.
Love ya,

Kids with Luke's family in Newport

Luke took the kids to newport with his family and left me and Max home alone. Ahh it was heaven and by heaven I mean silent.  Kids had fun, I had fun with Alison and Natalie visiting.

Quick Recap!!

Ok everybody let's get back on track with this thing, it's always been fun! I'll start us off in the right foot with these three pics... First is one of our four precious little girls that Lily gave birth to on my dad's bday (June 30th people). The second pic is Mason after he got his braces off. You're probably thinking what I'm thinking, and yes I have warned the dads in our area to safeguard
their 15-20 year old daughters. The last picture is the best picture because for those of you who haven't has the pleasure (which is most) of meeting Chelsea, there's a picture so you can put a gorgeous face to the name... I'm excited for everyone to meet her at the beach house! (oh ps she's coming to the beach house if you didn't know). Well Elder (Tanner) Garrett is about to embark on his journey to Florida so pray he doesn't get eaten by an alligator!! Keep blogging everyone!! Much love!!

Honda's New Walking Device

This contraption is hilarious. I would love to spend the day having something in my crotch to
help me walk and take even more exercise away from me. At least it looks sexy. I guess it could
be worn by men as a joke so that we could quip, "It's for extra support." Then simultaneously do a finger gun, wink, and make that click sound at the person who asked us about it.

Pokie and Squancho!

A little late, but worth it . . .

This was Dad's stance when the infamous fart, laughter, and subsequent death of the tiny European took place. Then Dad's face after the fart - this is the face where we laugh, but at the same time wonder if Dad is going to die of a heart attack.
Look at this sweet view - this was from the coolest lookout in all of Yosemite.

Dad's hair- yeahboyeee.

Tree huggers. Get it? - Tree hugger 'cause we're actually hugging a tree!! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ho ho ha ha
Greg and Grant re-kindling their childhood relationship - making me insanely jealous!

Oh What?! Stache's and such . . . .

If I had to crown a winner in the 'stache-off, I would actually say it was Greg. Considering it was a contest for the filthiest 'stache, Greg wins. His Asian facial hair comes as no coincidence when considering he served his mission in Taiwan - that was where he was taught the art of Asian-staching.

Yosemite was great and when Dad let that mudflapper go, we were all crying. The small European dude was actually excited by the fart as he wafted it toward himself and his girlfriend.

Post Yosemite "stache-off." Well, we spent a few weeks trying to grow a Russ Garrett worthy stache. These sweet photos were taken after our week at Yosemite, and appropriately enough, we were with Lisa at "Fats" in Folsom. :) No, we don't need to be on diets. HELLO!!! Clearly, I won the stache-off.

Dad at Yosemite--see explanation for face below

Hi all,
I thought I'd better get some Yosemite/guys trip photos up before the girls upload their NY pics. So, in this photo, we were at a scenic lookout point, and dad had his leg up on a stone wall, supporting my massive binoculars. Standing very close to him was a European guy and his lady. At that exact moment, dad let go one of the loudest farts I've ever heard! People a few miles away on Half Dome almost fell. The euro guy muttered something like, "Damned Americans," and he and his girl left. This was a priceless moment Greg, Adam, and I won't soon forget!
