Our little rasta man

Look at that boy groove! If Michael were still alive, I think he just may have stolen some of these moves. :) (And yes, that is reggae playing in the background. Other favorites include hip hop and the Mickey Mouse clubhouse soundtrack)

California in Pictures

For our first vacation of the summer, we spent a jam packed, fun filled 3 days in Southern California. Here are some highlights of our trip:

Cooling off in the resort pool

Attending the Redlands temple with Ben as he received his endowments

Grandma enjoying having all 3 grandchildren together

Haylee enjoying her first boat ride on Big Bear Lake

Jacob loving it too

Having fun at Disneyland

These two boys LOVE their aunt Beka

Jacob meeting Mickey for the first time, probably the highlight of the trip!

And not much of this going on... except for JT who apparently can fall asleep in any position!

Cereal Night 2009


4th of July weekend we reunited with some of my high school buddies for "cereal night" like we used to do back in the day. Sunday's after firesides, etc. we all gathered at the Hopkinson's for well, cereal. :) Many of us live out in Utah now, and others were in town and Andrea was awesome enough to organize and host. It was so fun to catch up with old friends. I left feeling 10 years younger! My high school years living in Hawaii were some of the most memorable of my life... thanks for all the fun guys!

Snip Snip

I had been holding out for Jacob's first birthday to put him in the barber chair, but his hair just kept growing and growing and really starting to irritate him. So after lots of pressure and threats from Vaka that he would do it himself (yikes!), I succumbed.

The before shot of my terrified baby. So glad I captured this face!


And my handsome BOY after. This was what I was afraid of. He looks so much older! :(



A big thanks to Rach for the job well done with such a squirmy, uncooperative baby! This girl has been doing my hair since my Liberty Square days (has it really been 7 years!?!) and was the only one I would trust with my baby's first cut.
