Day at Lagoon

Ever since Ryan and I met, he's always talked about the theme park "Lagoon." Since we were going to be in Utah for his family reunion, we decided to stay an extra day so we could spend my b-day at the theme park.

We started the day off with lunch at a great Mexican food restaurant called "Javier's" where we got the most amazing dessert nachos. After stuffing ourselves even more with cake, we headed off to Lagoon where rode away the day on the park's roller coasters. After an afternoon at the park, we jetted off to the airport just in time to make our flight back home. Thank you to all of the McFarlane's for making my b-day so great!

Some of Ryan's siblings and cousins that joined us for our Lagoon adventure.

The boys were braver than the rest of us and decided to do the "Human Catapult." Right before they flung them into the air, we watched Ryan on the video camera saying, "I immediately regret this decision." ;-)


England Family Reunion '09

We spent the majority of the reunion at Ryan's cousin Kara's house just swimming, eating, and spending time with family. I say it all the time and I'll say it again...Ryan has an awesome family. We loved getting to spend time with them!

As always, Ryan's nephew and niece wore us out with their never-ending energy. (Hats off to the parents out there who chase their kids around all day long. Twenty minutes of repetitive activities pretty much did us in.)


Pioneer Days Rodeo

This last weekend we attended Ryan's family reunion up in Utah. When we got up there on Friday night we went to the Ogden Pioneer Days Rodeo with Ryan's family. It was fun getting to watch the bull riding and getting to do some good "people watching." Ryan's nephew and niece especially loved watching the horses and calves.

The Send-Off Party

This past weekend we had a send-off party for my little brother Hunter. I still can't believe that he leaves for the mission in only 2 more weeks. Although I didn't remember to whip out my camera until later in the evening, I was still able to get a few pictures of some family and friends that stopped by.

Finally Done!

It's been a long time coming but we FINALLY finished all of the major painting in our new house (at least for now). The master bathroom has been a thorn in our side for quite some time so we're glad to finally have it done. I think it's safe to say that we're ready to take a break from home projects for a while.

Stay Classy San Diego

For the 4th of July weekend, our friends James and Tiffany invited us to go with them on a trip to San Diego. They were invited to celebrate the holiday on a yacht with some friends and we were more than happy to tag along.

When we arrived at the yacht party, we were surprised to find 6 yachts pulled up next to each other with tons of blow-up toys out in front. The coolest toy was a huge 20 ft. iceberg you could slide down. Although the water was a little chilly, it was a total blast!

One of my favorite parts of the trip was getting to paddleboard. I've been wanting to try it for the longest time and absolutely loved it!

On Saturday we found a cool farmers market in downtown San Diego.

We finished off the trip with a ride around Coronado Island.

Thanks again James and Tiffany, we had a ton of fun!
