Thanksgiving 2011

This Thanksgiving we were lucky enough to have two dinners. On Wednesday we went to Nathan and Sarah's house for dinner. Also there was Dan, Christina, Hunter, and Ayden. Sarah cooked a very yummy dinner and an awesome Turkey!

Ayden and Hunter. They are too cute!

On Thanksgiving day, we went to my Grandpa Dave's house. We got to see a lot of my cousins that I haven't seen in years and some Gabe haven't even met yet.

All of us!

These are pics of us attempting a Flash Mob at Red Rock in St. George.

The narrows. And no we didn't attempt going thru!

You can see the temple in the back ground.

The mom and me!

Scooby's Ouch

When we got back from Hawaii, I noticed that Scooby had an ouchy. Some how he cut a chuck off on his front leg. He is a clumsy dog! Since he is such a nervous licker, I had to wrap it up for a day so that it had a chance to heal. He wasn't very happy with that.

Hawaii Trip - Maui Day 8

Our last day in Maui. Our Flight didn't leave until 11pm. So we were able to get a late check out so we could shower and pack up to leave.

During the day we went back to Black Rock and hung out at the beach all day. There was a turtle that was almost on the shore eating pretty much all day long. It was pretty cool. We swam, tanned, and ate. Then we had to go back to get ready to leave.

Maui was an awesome island. I can't wait until I can go back.

Hawaii Trip - Maui Day 7

We had planned all week to do surfing lessons and finally got it scheduled. We woke up early to get the early morning waves.

Here we are getting our lessons before we set out.

Sarah opted out for surfing so she was our photographer.

I finally caught a good one and I got run over by another surfer. Nathan had a crash too.

Surfing was so much fun. I can't wait to get back on the board. In words from Blue Crush me and Gabe have "Surf Stoke." I seriously dream about it quite often.

After surfing we went to Black Rock. Everyone told us that when we went to Maui we had to go there. I wish we would have gotten there earlier. It was great.

Gabe and Nate jumped off the Block Rock. We were told it was 35 feet high.

Hawaii Trip - Maui Day 6

We had planned to do the Road to Hana, but Gabe had to do some work. So I went to the beach and laid out in the sun and read. Sarah and Nate went for a drive and ended up doing a helicopter ride.

After Gabe was done working we ate lunch and swam.

Late that night me and Sarah went down to the beach to watch the sunset. Nathan came down and we took some fun pics.

Hawaii Trip - Maui Day 5

We booked a snorkeling cruise to Molokini and Turtle Beach.

Molokini was fun to snorkel at. There were a lot of fish to see. It was a windy day so the water was a little murky, but we had a lot of fun taking pictures of each other under the water.

After Molokini the boat headed to Turtle Beach. Me and Sarah were cold so we stayed on the boat while the boys went and snorkeled. They say a turtle while out there. See below pic.

After snorkeling we had lunch on the boat. While eating a seal came by the boat really close. This certain kind of seal is an endangered specie. There is only 250 of the left. So it was pretty cool to see one.

After lunch, the boat cruised around showing us some cool places. Then we saw a family of dolphins with a little baby. The baby was so small.

On our way back to the condo we discovered some yummy Hawaiian Shave Ice. We ended up eating it a lot after that. I still crave it. :)

Hawaii Trip - Maui Day 4

Gabe and Nathan had work to do in the morning so me and Sarah went to the beach and snorkeled. We say a purple Octopus which was really cool. Probably the best sea creature we saw. Don't get me wrong the Sea Turtle's were really cool, but I suspected to see those and not an Octopus.
The boys came late and we all swam and had fun.

That afternoon we had Jet skis rented. So we went to Whalers Village and had lunch. Then off to jet ski.

At first I was really nervous and tentative, but then I got used to it and had a lot of fun. The boys were crazy on them. I'm surprised that Gabe didn't roll his.
