We hiked 1.2 miles to Emerald Pools and back. It was nice and shaded and just beautiful.
We loved being able to see so many family and friends along the way. On our way to CA, we stopped in Vegas and stayed with one of David's old roommates, Parker, and his wife, Stephanie. It was just so nice to be able to break up the trip with so many stops.
Still a happy camper, even at the end!

Fun with the cousins!
Golf pros in the making.
We also got to see Ayami and Dave and their new little one, Casey!
Adam looks a little mischievous with this water balloon.
Last year, when we went to visit Lauren and Trevor in Ohio, we started this little tradition of a crawling race between Adam and Bryce. We figured this would be the perfect time to continue the tradition one year later. What are they going to do when they are 15 and we say, "Okay, it's time for our annual tradition!! Get down on your hands and knees!" Our poor kids:)
And the winner is...
Just for memory's sake, we thought we would place the original crawling race video on for comparison. It is crazy to think they have grown up so much in just one year! Adam will get Bryce one of these days, just you wait!!

David surprised me with tickets to the 2009 American Idol Concert at the E-Center. I was so excited. We had watched the whole season, so were pretty big fans. (I guess not quite as big of fans as the 10-12 year old girls sitting behind us though, who screamed to their hearts content. That was pretty funny). It really was amazing to be there in concert live though. All of the performers had improved so much from the show and just seemed so much more at ease. It was a lot of fun and so sweet of David to plan.
We posted a couple of my favorite songs from the season that they luckily preformed that night as well. The video is pretty poor quality, but it is fun to at least hear the song and feel of the atmosphere! Don't get too dizzy watching.
