I am the luckiest

This is what we are listening to, while we play Settlers of Catan. We meaning Jacob, Lydia, Jesse and I. This is kind of our thing :)

I HAVE SO MUCH TO UPDATE ABOUT!!!!! I dont know where to start.

I went home last weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!


It was a billion times better than my best expectations. I've been home before since I've been living on my own, and it's been great, but it was something COMPLETELY different to be home with my whole family this time. Albert has been on his mission for the last years and then he was at BYU-I when he came back, so this was the first time in 2 and a half years that we were all home together. It was different than when we were growing up, because we're all older now and there was a different dynamic in the house. It was just BETTER. Just AWESOME. SOOOO GOOD!

We went camping and canoeing, and had a HILARIOUS time being really sleepy in the tentgoofing off with our mama :) I discovered then where exactly I got all my goofiness from. I thought it was from my crazy father, but nay, it was from my silly mother. I am going to grow up to be just like her. Older in body than in spirit, vaguely normal in public but silly and happy at home. And I think I'm going to like being like her :)

We also took family pictures!!! They're already on facebook so most of you have potentially already seen them, but I'm going to post my favorites anyways!









Where it all started.

My family is incredible. I am so grateful to be with them for eternity. Cause seriously, they are awesome. Families are SO COOL.

Well, that might be it for now. I should start posting more often though!

peace, love, families,
Catherine

Now the neighbors can dance!


I think pineapples look really cool. If I were fruit, I'd be one too.



Tonight, Jesse and I took a walk when I got home from work and on the way back to his apartment there were sprinklers, but we were brave and walked through them, but halfway through Jesse took my hand and swung me around and around in them so I got all wet! It was a pleasant sort of damp though, I must say. I quite like sprinklers, especially with Jesse.

peace, love, water,
Catherine
