Love Letters

More fun from discoveries in the basement. Our love letters from 1993! We met in the summer of 1993 when I was home from BYU and he was home from UCM. The summer ended but fortunately our relationship didn't. We kept it alive with these letters and a long distance phone call every few weeks.

Basement flooding

We unexpectedly got to clean out the basement this weekend when the washing machine flooded the basement. Awesome. But silver lining is these gems we found. 

Back to Life. Back to Reality.

We had a mountain of laundry to do.  On the very last load, the washing machine malfunctioned and flooded the laundry room, then traveled through the duct work to the basement to flood 3 rooms in the basement.  Luckily, we have some great home teachers.  JJ called a friend and we made quick work of the cleanup. No permanent damage done.

Day 6: Hawaii Trip 2017

A bonus day for Jeremiah and Caleb who had afternoon flights.  They hiked Manoa Falls.  Then tried to hit up beaches, but the surf was high and the beaches were closed.  They spent a few minutes at Waikiki then headed for the airport.

Day 5: Hawaii Trip 2017

Day 5: Dole Plantation, paddle boarding, Waimea Valley and ended the day at Hukilau Beach. This has been a perfect week and I never want it to end. Tomorrow we go home. Ugh.

Day 4: Hawaii Trip 2017

Day 4: Sunrise hike at Diamond Head. Snorkeling at Hanauma Bay. Pearl Harbor, sunset at Waikiki Beach then burgers and shaved ice. Can someone please explain to me why can we not figure out shaved ice in the continental US? It's my new fave.

Day 3: Hawaii Trip 2017

Day 3: Church right next to the temple. A tour of the visitors center. Whale watching at Makapu'u Point (saw 3!) and dinner with Mikaylie Parco. Also, check out the great house we rented 1 block from the temple and 2 blocks from the beach. May have to use VRBO every single time from now on.
