Now that Summer has come and gone... here's what we were up to:
(Forgive me for the insanely long "catch-up" post. Feel free to break it up into several days of viewing)
This is our summer in Reverse. :)
Spent good old pioneer day in SLC. Campfire with yummy tin-foil dinners. Then maybe some not-so-exciting sparkler-fest...but is sure looked like we were having the time of our lives right?
Went to a cousin's wedding at Draper Temple, Kelsey looked beautiful and we danced the night away at the reception.
Porter's Mom and brother came out to visit to soak up the FREEEEZING Bay Area weather. Despite the cold we were so excited to have them, and we were Jam Packed busy for 3 days. We spent a day in San Francisco. Ghirardelli, Fishermans warf for some delicious seafood, De Young Museum, more seafood, shopping, trolleys...the works.
We also spent a morning in Muir Woods...so beautiful.
And we spent a whole day in Santa Cruz/Capitola enjoying a little warmer weather, board-walk, mystery spot, enough taffy to make you puke, and ended the day delicious Pizza My Heart picnic on the beach.
So fun to have family come visit. We love you guys!
Over the summer we spent a ton of time by Grandma's pool with the littles. Here's big man WES in is sweet "swim-safe" contraption designed by his mama. Needless to say he looked amazing.
Had the Taylor Family Reunion in Southern California. It was a great success. Spent most of the time in Disneyland but also had a beach day full of body surfing and picking sand out of every inch of your body for the next 3 days. Another day of touring disney studios where we got to walk on to sets and view new movies being made.
Here's a picture of most of the gang..I believe there was about 65 of us in total.
Carter's favorite ride...so cute.
Porter is screamin' over California..Get it?
Thanks to our Disney Uncle who organized the whole reunion we had VIP service the entire week. And I mean serious VIP status. We stayed at the Grand Californian Hotel inside the park, got to the front of lines, private/reserved seating for all the shows, meet the cast, and as shown in this picture below we were let into the park earlier than the early admission guests. Nikki and I are pointing to all the pissed off guests behind the rope :) Thanks Brig, it was an amazing trip.
Who's the Favorite Aunt??
Here's Aunt Nikki Trying to sneak through the parade past the Disneyland Worker...It didn't go too well. The Hardcore worker actually shoved the rope in her face multiple times (almost on the verge of violently) while she was trying to dodge it.
Spooky Haunted House
Micky's quite the ladies man
The babies on "lock-down" in their strollers

To celebrate our 2nd & 3rd year of blissful Marriage us and our BFF's the Bowens went on a Mexican Riviera Cruise. We lived it up Mexi style visiting; Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta.
Eight crazy days of: fun, sun, food, and soft serve.
So Here is to two successful Marriages. Don't be confused with the spouse swapping, everyone needs a change of scenery at times right?
Port and I put a serious Slip n' Slide together for the kiddies.
Lake Tahoe College Roommate Reunion Trip. Fun.
And don't forget Summer Concerts!
All and All we had a fantastic summer of family and friends. Now it's back to school and work. Wish us luck!
