Summer Randoms

Hola! Como estas? Thats all I got in Spanish really.. other than the occasional "0" I tap onto the end of words to make it sound as if I am a Spanish speaker myself. I did pretend to speak Spanish once at Nordstrom though when an older Spanish lady started talking in Spanish really fast.. and all I could do was nod and say "Si" in a very convincing manner as if I knew exactly what she was talking about. She then kind of figured out that I "El Speako no Spanish" (the "o" at the end of words totally works if you ask me) but she still kept speaking in her foreign tongue. So, I kept nodding and saying "Si". I wrecked my brain trying to remember Spanish words for different colors and was successful in the following: "negro and blanco." She seemed pretty impressed if you ask me and personally, I think I was quite convincing. I actually was asked the other day if I was Mexican (I'm telling you, I think it's the ever-so-convicing "o's" that I add on to words) but I have to admit, I was a little confused. Did my blonde hair give it away? I think it was probably the height.The sweet lady on the left is our Grandma (Matt's mom's mom) and she is celebrating her Birthday today!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDMA!! We love you!!

Our Sunday walks have resumed after a two week break. Here we are about to embark on a little adventure around the hood.

This is the trail behind our house that goes on for miles. Perhaps I will jog this trail one day with a little baby in a jogger.
My husband is pretty much amazingly awesome. He makes things go from this...

to this!!
Our computer desk took a little longer to put together but it was well worth it. Matt did great work!

Smarty pants over here puts himself in time out on a daily basis. Nevermind the doggy door to the right that he can go in and out of anytime he pleases, he will sit by the door (as pictured) and wait for you to give him permission to enter and exit. (Matt calls it something else in many different words but I call it clever and polite. Think what you want)

We went to Utah for a day for my grandpa's funeral a couple of weeks back. Here are my parents at the cemetery.

I love my whole family and I am so grateful for all that they do. I know that we will see my grandpa soon and I am so grateful for that knowledge!
