I have secretly wanted to spend the night in the WigWam hotel for about 3 years now (which is the same exact time as when I first laid eyes on it). It is located in Holbrook Arizona. John's family calls it the Cozy Cones because of the movie "Cars." Last night, John surprised me and we were able to stay there. I might have felt like a real live Indian!!! Anyway...there were like 15 WigWam rooms and around the parking lot, there were classic cars everywhere.
Here is a picture of the WigWam we stayed in...Aren't they adorable?

Here was my favorite car...

Here we are in front of a different classic car...

Here we are inside of the WigWam...pretty snazzy isn't it!!! I wish I had more pictures. All of the walls were slanted.

Beth's Wedding

Yesterday John and I had the privilege of attending a wedding for one of his cousins. It was held at the Snowflake Temple in Northern Arizona. It's always nice to go to the Temple. It is such a beautiful place. Here are some pictures.
John took a picture of the Angel Moroni that is on top of the Temple.

Here is Beth with her new husband. :)

Here is a picture of John and myself in front of the temple.

Silver Creek

John and I went to Silver Creek this weekend with his family. It was fun. I generally like to go because it's outdoors and the weather has been so nice lately. Little did I know that I was going to catch the only fish of the the very end of the day. Here are the stats: The fish was 22 inches long and it weighed about 8 pounds(dad...this is for you).
Here I am with fish that I caught...John somehow talked me into holding it by the mouth for a picture. The fish was still sort of alive and bit me. Needless to say...the fish was thrown...haha

Here is a picture of all of us who were at the fishing trip... the dogs kept trying to lick the fish...yuck!!!

Here is John holding up the fish. We had such a fun day yesterday. :)

Easter 2010

This year for Easter, we spent the holiday down in Tuscon. We had a great lunch with lots of great family.
Here is a pic of John and I eating Eater lunch on the back patio.

His is Sunshine (My parents new puppy). She is the cutest thing ever!!!

Here are the sisters with baby Elle. We can't wait to meet her soon. :)

Cheese Cake Factory

Who knew Tuscon had a Cheese Cake Factory? I had no clue, but I'm soooo excited that they do. While the boys were at Priesthood meeting last week, the girls went out to eat. It was a lot of fun!!!
Here is a pic of Kristen and I. Don't you love Kristen's maternity shirt? (I picked it out a while ago for her)

Here is a picture of mom and Alexis... sitting across from us...

Here is a picture of Kristen and I...clearly she is enjoying her food.

Sushine AKA Sunny

Last week my parents had to put their dog Gabby down, because she became really sick. This past week, my mom found Skye crying because she missed her friend Gabby. So... my dad decided that it would be a good idea to get another dog...and it was my job to find it. Obviously I love dogs and was up for the challenge. We found this couple who had just had a litter in Buckeye (it was the longest drive ever). There were 5 girl puppies to choose from and my dad picked out the cutest one! We named her in the car Sunny. Her real name is going to be Sunshine. Sunshine Shipley!!! Here are some pictures.
Here are Gabby and Skye. So long Gabby girl. :)
