Traveling to Utah

 Form California to Vegas now onto Utah! Utah was such a great trip for Mike and I. I got their two days before Mike came. He has been working so very hard for Vivint so he gave himself a break for 4 days to come up for his brothers wedding. There were tons of activities going on that week.
The first picture says it all. If you know Mike he Loves to hear KSL Radio and listen to the Night Side Project with Ethan Millard and Alex Kirry. For his Little sisters Birthday He Begged everyone to go to Costa Vida for dinner cause these peeps were going to be their. (Side note: Mike has tweeted these guys ever since we have been married so when he finally saw them in person he gave them both Chocolate covered Macadamia Nuts) That's my man right there!
We Love our Schoneman Fam! 
 On July 21st Michael's Brother Steven Married his Sweet companion Mitzi for Time and all Eternity in the Bountiful Utah Temple! It was absolutely Gorgeous and a HOT day!

 I don't know what it is but whenever Michael and Scott get together it is always a party. The become inseparable! Best Buds For LIFE!

 Mike and I had the Chance to Visit our dear friend Julia & Matt Brown! They just got married in June. I was so happy to finally meet Julia's husband and we had a blast visiting and eating with them. We gave them some treats from the Island as well as a wedding gift. 

 Here are some other peoples we got to visit while we were in Utah...Paul and Deborah and their sweet Children!                                                            Stetson

By this time Michael had left Utah to go back and Sell and I stayed an extra day to celebrate Katie and Paul and their Baby Boy Garrett in their baby shower. All of those clothes that are hanging were Paul's when he was a little baby.
                                                            Can't wait to meet him!
Over all it was such a wonderful trip and we had a great time! We sure miss our family's while we are an ocean away! Come and Visit us!

California Trip

Since this summer has been a little different with Mike working so much and hardly seeing him and one of our cars broken down and being stranded in Hauula for two weeks while Mike was on the other part of the island for 12 or more hours a day I needed a little vacation. Mike said, "If you find a good price for a ticket you can go home." I was stoked! I had found a great one way ticket to LAX for over $240. BOOM!
When I got to California My sister Emily & her family was visiting from Tuscon, AZ. I haven't seen them since December so that was a great treat! I did a little photoshoot with them on their last day of vacation! Miss you guys!
 When i was about 6 years old there is a picture just like the one below of all my sisters surrounding my mom and now 15 years later doing the same picture!
 On the 10 of July it was my parents 39th Anniversary! They are more in love with each other than the day they met in their 3rd grade class! These two people are the best examples I know and I have learned so many wise and great things from them. I am so glad that they are my parents and that they waited to have me as their 7th child!
               I liked seeing Carrie's lil baby bump! I can't wait to meet Baby Van Patrick in November!
                          There was a ton of Carrie and Pat time and having Jamming sessions

I got to see this big guy! I can't believe Jason is 12 and will be a teenager in October! Man time has gone by so fast.
                                There was a ton of Ham time and a lot of sleeping and snoring.
                                                     Miss all of you guys already!

Independence Day 2012

I just wanted to document our 4th this year. Mike had the day off of work for Vivint this 4th of July but he ended up selling until 4PM. That was okay because while he was selling I went with Katie, Brent & their family to Pupukea (Sharks Cove) to enjoy the day in the Sun! Katie's Cousin's were there Zack & Zaira and they were so much fun to hang out with.
Once Mike got off from work he met us at the beach... Little did we know we had to get to Turtle Bay before the fireworks started. I met the whole Vivint crew and they are such wonderful people. Funny story: So We met up with Brent and Katie at Turtle Bay with the kiddoes and about 5 minutes before the fireworks show was happening we could see sheets of rain coming our way. Thank goodness we brought a huge blanket because mike and I acted as a tent around B, K, the kids and Zack and Zaira. We stood over them for about another 5 minutes and then we heard the announcer countdown from 10... (it had stopped raining then) so we flipped over the blanket, set it down as fast as we could and everyone enjoyed the Show.
 It was a great day to spend some time with my hunny since he works 80 hour weeks!
