Blast from the Past

I have been collecting old pictures for our slideshow we want to present at the wedding, and i thought I would give a guys a little sneak peak of what is to come. :D
Haven't changed too much. 

Picnic in the front yard. Those were the days. Nina! those are the red juice BOXES i was telling you about! haha
I did NOT (and still dont) like disney costume characters. Briana on the other hand could not have been happier!
probably content watching sesame street 

My mom made a lot of our clothes

me and chloe!!

62 more days!

I figured it was finally appropriate to start counting down the days. :D I actually have lots of pictures to show of our accomplishments throughout the whole process, but i think i want to keep everything a surprise until the big day. After that i will unleash all of my secrets and clutter my blog with pictures of everything.

"Can I show you how well i ride my bike?"

Lunch with the duckies and Cherry on Top

Yesterday, I met up with Nina and the girlies for lunch at Tiwinkle park. Let me just tell you..those "waterfowl" are bold! These 'half-breed ducks' (as we called them) came right up to our blanket and at one point surrounded us, waiting for our food to be surrendered. They were not even slightly scared of "shew! go away!" followed by a swipe of the hand, so i casually mentioned that (in the future) we could use a magazine i had in my bag to shew them away with if they got to close. The next thing we knew, Nevaeh got up from the blanket and boldly began chasing these birds away, demanding that they leave our food alone. (it was really cute)

Last night, after Josh's bible study (which was AMAZING by the way!) the whole group went out for frozen yogurt afterwards! We had a great time of fellowship, and its something that we should definitely do more often. Kat made a friend at winter camp who lived in Colorado. Apparently, she just moved back to California two days ago (didnt know anyone) and happened to go to the Monday night study at Calvary to check it out. On her way in, Kat recognized her and asked if she wanted to join us for our little study. Her name is Cambria (how cool?!) and she is really sweet. Our study got moved around quite a few times yesterday, and we ended up in the Refuge office.. It was totally the Lord leading us in there (even tho at the time the circumstance seemed a little frustrating and completely out of our hands) If we hadn't met in there last night, Kat definitely wouldnt have run into Cambria last night, and she wouldnt have had the opportunity to make so many freinds! we told her about the high school group on wednesday nights and she sounded really excited to start coming. God works in mysterious ways.

Let me start out by saying..none of these pictures were posed!! (except for the first one..kind of.) Josh's dogs are precious. Always under foot, but so in love with and loyal to their master. Since they got their newest addition, Abby, she has been attached to Janice (Josh's mom), always following her around and making sure she is safe. :) Last Sunday, Josh and I played a game of croquet with his mom! We had a really good time, enjoying the sun and each others company. 

There she is. Always watching out for someone. She kept sitting right at Janice's feet (and occasionally in front of Josh, as shown here) each time it was her turn to hit the croquet ball! No amount of nudging could make her move! She is such a crack up.

Girls night

I love that the sun doesn't go down until like 8pm now! So much extra time to spend out doors after work. With a few extra hours of sun i feel like my day wasn't completely waisted sitting behind a desk..even tho it was. haha. 

Watching some kids play football in the street (Nevaeh wishing she could join them)

She kept having to adjust her hat so she could see! But insisted that she must wear it non the less.
