Where have we been? I'm glad you asked... We have had a very busy last couple of weeks. We started our summer by flying up to Redding... beautiful Redding where at this particular time of year the blue, blue skies were lit up with smoke and ash from the neighboring fires! It was pretty hot up there, but we had an awesome Fourth and were with our family so we had a blast. Every night we would stay up super late (the Jones' are night owls...) playing Scrabble, and I have come to two conclusions: 1) I need to brush up on my vocabulary, and 2) I can't play Scrabble with Matt anymore... he is seriously so good and I am a competitive person who hates to lose... a dangerous combination!
After that, Matt and I went to see Wicked. I LOVED it! It was our first endeavor into broadway together and I was so glad that Matt enjoyed it too! He even said that he got goose bumps after the first act! Matt got us the tickets for our two year anniversary (thanks Aubrey!) and it was so nice to have a little date night. A huge thanks goes out to our good friends Kori and Brad for watching Reese while we were out... you guys are the best!
Then it was up to Fresno to hang out with the Mortensen crew. Reese loves her cousin Evelyn so much. I can just see it in her eyes when they played together. She would follow Evelyn around and play with all of her toys. My favorite was their bath time together. As you can see Evelyn was a little freaked out sharing her tub with someone else, but Heidi and I were loving it.
When we came home, we had tickets to Coldplay that same night so despite being pretty tired from our travels we headed back up north to see them in L.A. Our second time seeing them and and we were not disappointed. An amazing show, awesome seats, and again another incredible date night with my honey (thank you Bex and Ammon for watching our little peanut). Matt teases me because the entire concert I was holding my phone checking to see if Becky was trying to get a hold of me needing something for Reese... so I'm a little attached to my daughter. You would be too if she were as cute as mine!
So we are having an incredible summer, and hope you are too!
