Thaddeus and I have been quite busy over the last few months. My job has really picked up and we have been hiring people like crazy (good sign for the Ogden economy). Thaddeus also decided to join up with one of his friends from undergrad and another friend to form a law firm. He moved his office to Kaysville (a bummer since it was so close to our house but great so they can get business from Ogden and Salt Lake) and they joined together. This has been very busy but also very exciting. He has been able to maintain all his previous clients plus continue to add more. We are so thankful to family and friends for all of the referrals. He is now a partner in Garn, Feller & Wendt, LLC. Has a nice ring to it.

Leentje's go group!

Some of you may know I have been helping out with Leentje's go group from church(a group of just newly seventh grade girls). They decided before they went back to school they would like to have a camp out in my backyard. Here a lot of them all crammed in one tent. It was a lot of fun to have a campfire, scavenger hunt and sleeping under the stars!A view from my porch.

Although I think they were up until 3 in the morning(hopefully they were far enough down there that my neighbors didn't here). It was really a lot of fun. Some of the girls had never been camping before so it was fun to give them a small taste of what it is like. We roasted hot dogs and smore on the fire and told stories!!!
And yes, I slept in a tent as well

Beach House

I know it has been awhile. I decided I would try to catch up on some of the last couple months. The beginning of August we were able to have a family reuinion at the beach in Newport/Balboa Beach California. It was a ton of fun and a great relaxing vacation. I took loads of pictures so I though I could share a few. Below is my grandma and my cousin's daughter Leentje. It was really nice while we in Cali to be able to see Thaddeus' sister Mary Beth and her daughter Sanali, we were able to stay a night at their house and then she came up and stayed a night with us at the beach.

The beach and the pier at night.

We were also able to visit Disneyland one day while we were there which was a blast. Here is my sister and I in line for Thunder Mountain.

We were really excited to ride Space Mountin. This is when we were in line for that.

This is a picture of my fam on the pier!

Thaddeus and his best bud Cole, my cousin's son(with Leentje's stylish glasses on).

We are definitely considering getting another beach house for next year and hopefully some of our friends can join us!!!!
