Our Little Swimmer

Another week flew by in Plantation, Florida and it was so much fun! It started off at the pool on Memorial Day and ended up at our new friends’ house for a BBQ and games! All I can say is THANK HEAVENS for the church! It is the neatest thing how you can feel so out of place one minute… then go to church where everything is so familiar and everyone there is so kind and welcoming. We have met so many fun new friends and they have taken us in already. Most are either out here for law, medical, dental, or optometry school so lots of them are from our neck of the woods… Utah. That means even when all of our adventures are done out here in Florida, we can STILL hang out and stay in touch. Lucky us! We love our ward and our new friends!

As for JD, things with football are going well. He’s still just taking in all the new stuff and trying to catch up on learning the defense and just the whole new scheme. He has positive things to say each day when he gets home though so that’s always good!

Jonnie girl is getting bigger and cuter by the minute. We usually head to the pool right when we wake up since it’s the rainy season and rains most afternoons. She loves kickin around in the water until she wears herself out for her morning nap on the lawn chair… under the umbrella of course.

Once we get back from the pool after about an hour or so, its bath time and then food network time! I never was that interested in cooking… but now I can’t wait to get out of this hotel and into a kitchen! All in all… we are loving our adventure out here and can’t wait to see what all’s in store for us! Miss you all back home!!


Mi to the Ami

We made it!! We actually aren't staying IN Miami... We're staying about 10 minutes or so away from Ft. Lauderdale in a place called Plantation. We really like it! JD actually has a lot more free time than we thought he would so it has been so nice to see so much of him! It has been storming here so Jonnie and I have only gone to the pool once and we haven't even made it to the beach yet. But we are having fun hanging out together!

JD is liking football pretty well... I guess all the vets are kinda punks but he likes the rookies a lot. Pretty much it's just like being a freshman all over again. Things are going well though! He gets this weekend AND Memorial Day off so we are gonna hopefully do some fun things... OUTDOORS if the storms go away. It's still warm here when it rains though so it's kinda fun... I'd go puddle jumping if Jonnie wasn't always in my arms!

Speaking of the little munchkin, I can't believe how big she is getting... seriously. She is all smiles and even giggles at least 3 or 4 times a day. Yesterday was her big TWO MONTH bday. JD loves standing her up on his tummy when he's laying down and watching her walk up his chest... it's adorable. They are so cute together! Well things are going well and we are having fun with our little family out here! I have to come down to the lobby to get free internet in this fancy hotel so my blogging will still be few and far between. I'll try to update at least once a week though! Here are some pictures of the latest... I don't have any of the journey out here cause we had our video camera out so we got all the action on there:]

View from the hotel window.

Jonnie super excited to hang out poolside.

She rules this King size bed! haha... she looks so miniature.

She sure misses being thrown over Uncle Dutcher's shoulder like a sack of potatoes!... no but she REALLY does... He could always stop her crying.

Jonnie in her blessing dress the morning of. This is the dress I was blessed in as well:]

Just hangin out in the room with Momma. Doin what we do best! R.E.L.A.X.I.N.


Journey Cross Country

I am a S.L.A.C.K.E.R.! I will post pictures once we get to Miami and I have a little more time... but just a quick update:

-My first Mother's Day was amazing! Spent it with both of our families since we had Jonnie's blessing that day... which was precious... JD is the BEST Daddy!

-I'm officially a COLLEGE GRAD! WOO!

-We bought a new truck! Much needed to drive across country in a reliable vehicle that had lots of room for all our STUFF that I packed for our first 2 month stay in Miami.

-Speaking of... we are currently in the process of driving across country... yesterday we took off from Centerville and ended up in Kearney Nebraska. Today we left from there and ended up in St. Louis Missouri.

--We traveled almost the entire day in a SEVERE STORM and once we got out it followed us to St. Louis and we are now in the middle of the same storm PLUS have a TORNADO watch. SCARY!

-We would have just made things easy and flown to Miami but since Jonnie and I will be hanging out while JD's at practice and workouts all day, I figured I NEEDED a vehicle out there or I would have gone stir crazy!

-Surprisingly, I'm loving the drive out here! It has been so fun to see how different all the states are.... Missouri is SO GREEN and PRETTY! Besides it being so scary with all the rain and hail, I loved the drive today!

-Tomorrow we are leaving St. Louis and ending up in Atlanta. I'm excited to see all the fun new stuff tomorrow!

-This adventure is so much fun already... I love my husband so much and my baby girl as well. She has been the best little traveler and she is growing up by the minute! I know our families are missing her like crazy already... and believe me.. she is missing YOU GUYS as well!! I cried my little eyes out when we left my parents' house on Thursday... I've never been so far away and gone for so long. But it also makes me really sad that our families have to miss these couple months of Jonnie growing up. Thank heavens for the Web Cam my Dad got me for Mother's Day!!

-Well.. there is an update as for now... NOTE TO OUR FAMILIES:
