Sister Reunion

I feel like I have been SO BUSY with Family stuff the last week I kind of forgot about the blog for a minute. Which I think is good sometimes.
If you've been following my blog for the last 6 months you know my little sister Natalie AKA Fatalie has been living in Hawaii for school. She came home this past Friday & I was absolutely sick to my stomach the whole previous week because I was so excited. Like.. kid on Christmas morning excited. I thought I was going to throw up at the airport because I was so anxious for her to come down the escalator!
Waiting at the airport with my mom
I'm pretty sure I screamed "MY SISTER!" when I saw her.
She also brought her boyfriend Tanner home to meet the fam. Tanner is an incredible surfer from San Clemente, California- he and my sister met in Hawaii 6 months and have basically been inseparable ever since.
(Tanner also just got his mission call to the Philippines! SO EXCITED!)
I had waited for this day for SIX MONTHS!
Friday Night
Natalie and Tanner made the rounds to see family & Spencer and I went to Tim McGraw!
The $10.00 Nachos and $5.00 Soft drinks were TOTALLY worth it. Good ol' Timmy put on an awesome show!!
(Thanks for the Anniversary Present Babe!)

Saturday night
we had a HUGE family & Friends BBQ to welcome home Natty & Tanner!

At the BBQ Nat said she had an announcement..
Sorry I didn't catch the whole thing on video. And ignore my hideous voice trying to sing..
SO Happy my little munchkin is going to serve a full time mission!

After the BBQ we went to the Superman movie, whatever it's called. I didn't love it. And I didn't have time to get popcorn so I basically got jipped.

Natalie spoke in church about Fathers & did an awesome job. We went up the canyon to Taggart's for dinner and celebrated Daddy-o for Father's Day!

Whenever we go to Taggart's, it's tradition that we take one normal family photo, and one awkward family photo. We all have a slight obsession with awkward family photos.


Here are the photos from THIS YEAR! awesome..

Happy Father's Day to the best dad in the world!

It felt SO GOOD having all of my family home.
Fire pit, BBQ's, puppy loves & warm weather.

This weekend, life was perfect.

  1. You have the most gorgeous little family! And it is definitely okay to forget about the blogging world for a little while in favor of the real world.

  2. What a fabulous time :) I am going to see Tim McGraw this weekend!! I am so glad you got time with your sister!!!

  3. ok i have been dying to say it just me or could tanner and spencer be twins! wtf?! so cute! what a fun weekend! LOVE YOU!

    1. HAHA I totally thought that seeing them side by side as well. Great minds think alike lady. I love you!!

  4. Full time mission? I'm confused haha what does that mean?

    1. Erin- thanks for leaving a comment on today's post! In our church our youth can decide to go "on a mission" Boys give up two years of their lives and girls give up 18 months.. and are sent all over the world to teach other people about our church!

      We believe that doing in doing so, they (and their families) Receive blessings for such a large sacrifice.

      I hope that kind of makes sense! If you have any other questions let me know I'd love to explain it to you!

  5. I love your blog!

    New follower!

  6. So fun! Your whole family (and the spouse & boyfriend) are all so good looking! So blessed :) I would love to see Tim McGraw sometime!

    Xo, Kelsey

    1. Kelsey- thank you so much, that's so sweet of you!
