Date Night! Ryan and I went with Lara and Tyler and Mark and Debra to Jump On It to well...jump on it! It a crazy ghetto place made of trampolines where ADD kids come to give their parents an hour of relief. Cue the married people! The husbands were all about going crazy stunts and flips and the girls loved watching them fall all over the place. I decided to take some video and I have to say I was quite impressed by their jumping skills. We topped off the night by a crazy amount of Farrs ice cream and a $5 pizza and a movie. Gotta love Provo.
After an unsuccessful atempt to visit a new sister in the ward Megan and I sat down to work on the new Relief Society newsletter. I saw a great newsletter when I was home in Florida and after 8 months of being in my calling I finally feel like I can branch out and not just do the "have to" stuff. Insert newsletter! Megan is truly a genius on the computer so I have no doubt the newsletter is going to knock everyone's socks off! Relief Society is so much fun when you are surrounded by all of your friends and I couldn't have asked for better girlfriends.
Ah, work. You gotta love the 9-5 grind. As you can tell I work really hard all day. Hard enough that I can snap pictures of our pet skeleton totally beating me at a staring contest. The girls at work are very supportive of the blog idea so they had to be a part of one of the infamous posts. Can't say that I live for my job...more like I go to my job so Ryan and I can live, but you know, I am grateful for the good times in which I can snap a picture and have a good laugh with some of my good gal pals.
No Way :) -Ryan
After a nice walk on the beach with the Vorwallers we ate at Cantina. It was a fun meal catching up with Mom and Dad and if you look carefully above my Dad's head the ceiling is lined with surfboards! It was pretty sweet looking...Ryan said it was a waste of good surfboards. Spoken like a true surfer!
While up in Jacksonville we also stopped by Nanny's house where the whole family was having the traditional rice and black-eyed peas meal for New Years. We celebrated by having a chinese auction which was a lot of fun. We enjoyed seeing everyone opening up the different gifts and fighting over the good ones. We also brought gifts for Nanny, and Ryan and I got her books from the Twilight Series so she can continue to read about Bella and her crazy adventures. We had a great time seeing Nanny and the whole family.
