Havasupai and San Diego

Last weekend Robert went with some of his friends to Havasu Falls near the Grand Canyon, so Julia and I took off for the weekend too and visited my cousin in San Diego. We had so much fun with my cousin Katrina and her husband Bret and little one year old girl Ali. Ali was especially excited to see us every morning. She loved looking at Julia and figuring out what Julia was all about. I guess that's a good thing since she is going to have a little brother in a couple months. Anyway, so we visited the temple grounds, saw the beach at Torrey Pines, saw the beach at La Jolla Cove, went to the beach at Coronado Island (cool jets), ate lunch and flew a kite at the beach at Mission Bay (all on different days)...sensing a theme ? It was awesome!
All Robert's pictures were so beautiful, I had a hard time picking which ones to post. I don't think it's possible to take a bad picture at Havasupai. Sounds like they had a great time hiking all over the canyon. There is no road down to the bottom of the canyon, so you either have to backpack or ride horses in for ten miles to the campground, or pay for a helicopter ride in. After you get to the campground you hike around to see all the waterfalls too. It looks like it's worth it though. I hope I can go and see it all someday too!

Finally, she rolls!

Julia rolled over yesterday! I had just finished feeding her so I laid her down on her back instead of her tummy so she wouldn't spit up everything she had just eaten. Then I looked away for a minute, and heard her making muffled noises like she does when she is on her tummy and is putting her face down. "Wait a minute, but I just put her down on her back!" I looked at her again and sure enough she had rolled over while I wasn't watching. So I flipped her over on her back again and she rolled onto her tummy again for me (then I made her do it again and again and again).

You can hear me talking to Robert on the phone telling him about it. I called him right away because I was just so excited she finally flipped. She's been getting pretty mobile lately, reaching for toys on her side and moving around by kicking her legs (she just needs to start using her arms and she might actually get somewhere), so I had been expecting the roll any day.

Collage Crazy

Last night after Julia went to bed I figured put how to make collages with my pictures and went a little crazy with them.











The collages are of our wedding five years ago, Seattle vacation last month, and Julia through the months
