I know you're all sick of my face... But I will take this opportunity to be the first July post-er. We just got back from our week with the family at Newport Beach. It was truly relaxing and enjoyable. We both love love to be with the fam and we feel really lucky to have them forever!

It's true, Russ looks like a Euro-tourist.

We were so lucky to have our own personal photog, my sister Liz,
check out the full slide show at her blog.

Love of my life.

Beach bunny Avery.

On our way to B.J.'s pizza, mmmm.

Me, Bethany, Casey after a long hard day of shopping.

Balboa hippo cookies. For some reason the bakery only makes them in the shape of hippos?

We had lots of fun. I was glad to be home for Kim's wedding and of course Independence Day! I think we can all agree that no one does the 4th quite like Provo. I love it! We're hoping we can stick around for awhile but Russ has been wrestling with the urges to go to medical school for a couple of years and we finally got our answer. We both feel really peaceful about going through with it. So Russ will be wrapping up his undergrad, probably transferring to the U and then from there at least 4 more years of medical school. It's definitely daunting and scary, but when Russ puts his mind to something, he does it and excels at it. That also means that sadly, we will be selling our house in P.G. We plan to put it on the market by September, so if you know anyone who wants the cutest house EVER in a great neighborhood send them my way.

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday, and I hope to see your posts soon!
