Hawaii Day 2

Woke up at 6 and went to the gym, let me remind you that 6am HI time is 10am UT time :) My view was palm trees and ocean as I ran. Yup it was a great work out! We left then for the temple. We were all planning on doing baptisms, but if you have been endowed they won't let you unless you have your own names so Suzanne and I were workers. It was very neat to even be there so I didn't mind too much.
I had a very spiritual experience that I will never forget. Mike was able to baptize Adam and Amanda. I am having a hard time explaining this, but the pride and love I have for Mike grew. I am proud of him and so happy he was able to do that. I am glad he is a worthy priesthood holder. I am lucky to have him as my husband. I love you babe!

After that we went to the Visitors center, but it wasn't open yet. We decided to get some grub while we waited. We ate by an ice cream shop. I saw they had boba!!!!  One of my most favorite treats ever! I was in 7th heaven. I ordered my drink an…


Mike and I dropped Pey off the night before since our flight was early that next morning. I showed my mom the basics of Peys routine and put her down to sleep for the night. It wasn't hard till I had to walk out of the room and knew I wouldn't see her for 10 days. I shed a few tears, but I knew she'd be in good hands.

I could hardly sleep the excitement was too much. I felt like a kid on Christmas eve waiting for a big present! Ashton dropped us off at the airport and we were on our way! The flights were long and I don't like flying it makes me nervous. We flew to Denver on a tiny plane that scared me... Yes we went backwards to Denver to go to Hawaii. On the Denver to Hawaii flight I sat next to stinky! Some girl that Mike and I think pooped her pants. That was a long 7 hours.
 We arrived in Oahu and the second I stepped off the plane the air hit me. I love the smell of Hawaii! It really is such a beautiful place! We found Suzanne and Amanda and guess what they gave u…

Pretty Peyton

On Thursday we were at Lacey and Jeffs reception which was very beautiful! Lo and behold our friends Aubrey and Sam were their photographers. These two girl are AMAZING to say the least. They took a few of Pey that Mike and I absolutely love!!

There is no doubt about it, Pey loves sugar! They had snow cones at their wedding and Pey had her own.

Sunday: 5 Years after my accident. We hung out with our families of course. Just another emotional 24th for me. I always feel a little different every year on that day. I'm not sure how to explain it. I was sitting there getting Peyton ready for church and it hit me. I realized she is the reason I am still alive. I know there are so many other reasons. I really feel and felt in that moment looking at her and thinking SHE IS IT. I love that little girl more than I could ever imagine. I also though about a good friend of mine who passed away a few month ago and how very real death is.  I know that I have change, I never want to hurt any ones feelings, I never want to say goodbye to a loved one with out telling them how much I love them and care about them. I am grateful for my family, my home, my dog and my friends. Life couldn't get any better.
