Hello? Do you still check this?

Sorry about the delay...but we have been BUSY for the past few weeks. No time (or no internet connection) to blog. But here I redeem myself as a faithful blogger...sitting at Uncle Todd and Aunt Becky's house in Fargo, North Dakota to tell you all that we are indeed alive and well and are headed home to sunny CA tomorrow. I will update you on our travels then. We have had such an amazing time, first spending 9 days in Southern Alberta with my family, then meeting Nathan in WY and being there for brother Forrests mission homecoming, and finally on to North Dakota for the Allred (Nathan's moms) family reunion. We have had a blast, but after three weeks of being in all sorts of different beds Beckett is ready for his old schedule and his own crib. He has been a champ, however...I am amazed at how well he has handled our travels. Anyway...don't give up on us...I promise to post again soon!

Our Little Firecracker...

Happy Independence Day! We had a wonderful day yesterday and want to tell you all about it. We got up and headed to Westchester to enjoy the parade with Hunka Dan and Auntie P. Beckett was mesmerized by all of the people. Jules was dancing in the parade, so we were there representing.

We went to D&P’s for drinks and dogs, Uncle Dan set up the kiddy pool for Beckett. He loved it for a while, and then got tuckered out and we all found ourselves asleep in no time. We had a very relaxing afternoon.

Around 4:30 we made our way over to our church for a ward BBQ. We have so many great friends in LA and we love our ward. Check out all of the girls who who were pregnant at the same time. Crazy.

After dinner we came home to give Beckett a bath and then headed over to Culver City with another couple and their little boy (ours are the only ones who don’t go to bed before 9 o’clock at night) and Beckham (their little boy) and Beckett LOVED the fireworks. It was so much fun to see him take it all in. We had a wonderful 4th of July together.

Here's what we've been up to for the past week. First off, last Tuesday I was in a car accident...but no worries...everyone is fine. It was just Beckett and I-we were going to pick Nathan up from work, and a couple blocks from his work, a guy cut through traffic and ran into the side of us. More than anything it was just traumatizing because #1-I have NEVER been in an accident before and I didn't even know what to do, #2-I had a 5 month old baby in the back who started screaming and I didn't know if he was okay and #3-it was just scary...after initial impact, the guy ran into a fire hydrant and so there was lots of noise and water. It's sad cause we've been through a lot with that car. It was our first as a married couple, it's been to TN, Canada, WY, and CA, it was our college car, and we brought Beckett home in it. Sad to say goodbye.
On a lighter note...on Thursday Beckett and I went to a pool party with some of our good friends...
and on Saturday Nathan and I went down to the beach for a little while. It was so much fun to get some sun.Lastly, Nathan has decided to sell his Vmax Motorcycle. If anybody wants's going for cheap!
