Graduation Party Weekend

While in AZ we went to multiple graduation parties. Christine Min also had her promotion party from 8th grade to high school. It was a weekend of running around, eating, and visiting. It was a long, fun, but tiring weekend.

Nicole's Graduation from High School

Nicole graduated from Desert Mountain High School on May 26, 2010. I still can't believe it. This is the same school I graduated from 11 years ago. We all went to the graduation on the school's football field. It was a great ceremony. We had her party 2 nights later and had it all decorated in maroon and silver for the DMHS colors. We had great Maggiano's Italian and had fun catching up with old friends.

Hanging out with my friends and my new Nephew

While I was in AZ I was able to meet up with some of my friends and go out to dinner. We went to yummy Olive Garden. I also got to meet my nephew Will for the first time. He was absolutely gorgeous. He has these beautiful big blue eyes. It was great seeing them again and spending time catching up. Hope to see them all again soon.

Glee Live Concert

So, we went to the Glee Live Concert at the Gibson Amphitheatre today. It was an amazing show. Here are some pics. The one of the dancers is the number they did from Lady GaGa. I would recommend everyone going to see the show, it was great.

Scrapbook Night

Last night was our monthly Stampin Up party at Chris's house. We tried out these new papers which were a lot of fun, but it took a long time to put together. Here are some pics of how my pages came out. I love them!

Huntington Beach Dog Beach

Frosty and Gunny's first trip to the dog beach in Huntington Beach. There were a ton of dogs around there. They both had a lot of fun. Frosty however did not like the ocean so much. He was much happier running around the sand and wanting to chase the other dogs. Here are some pictures and a video from today.

Even Gunny liked the beach

Frosty had found a new friend.

Time for a recap...

So, things have been crazy, lots of things going on. First off, last week I just finished another semester of my graduate program. Then we got no break and I started back for summer school yesterday for a full semester. I'm still waiting on grades, but hopefully all will be good.

Lately, we've been trying to go on a hike somewhere each weekend. This past weekend we went up to Mt. Rubidoux. It was gorgeous. It was a 2 mile hike up and then 1 mile hike down the steeper trail. There's a cross at the top of it all, that is supposedly the spot of the first sunrise Easter mass. So, Brayton, my mom, Robert, Charles and I all hiked to the top. Then to get to the actual cross you need to climb up these monster concrete/rock steps. Charles, Robert and I did this part. Big mistake my thighs are killing me from it. But, the view was amazing of the city. I would definitely try this hike again.

Then, it was mother's day. I spent the afternoon with my mom at a friends campground in Yucaipa while Brayton was at work. We had good BBQ and Frosty came so he got to see his sister Abby again. Frosty had a great time running around. He did get a boo boo from another dog and he got a swollen eye. But he's doing much better now. Then when Brayton got off of work we met him at a yummy Mexican resteraunt Casa Trejo for dinner. Here are some pics from Mother's Day!

It's been a long time...

Well, lets start back with Easter weekend. Family from AZ and NY came out to visit. We took the NY family to Rodeo Drive and Hollywood for the day. We all had a lot of fun. We ate at resteraunt Nate n Al's which Larry King eats at every morning in Beverly Hills. It was quite yummy.
