Las Vegas Vacation

Watching the Belagio Fountains

The whole Rees gang at the fountains

On the really high, really windy bridge above the Hoover Dam (only a little freaky!)

Scaring mom to death

Fun boating/jet skiing day at Lake Mead. Here are some cousins hanging out and snacking with Grandma.

James' mom playing a Minute to Win It game

Doing under-doggies

Just a cute swing picture

James played like he was on vacation

Jimmer loved jumping in the pool over and over again

So fun!

We took family pictures with the whole Rees clan. I don't have the big family picture yet, but here is the one we took of just James, Jimmer and I. It's our most recent family picture.

In July we spent a week long reunion in Las Vegas with James' whole family. We had 42 people altogether and we stayed in one really big house. We had a lot of fun!! We enjoyed swimming, cooking and eating together, playing Minute to Win It games, shopping(girls)/basketball(boys), touring the Hoover Dam, boating, visiting the Belagio fountains, playing with cousins, and doing skits. We love spending time with whole family and wish we could see everyone more often.

Seeley's Graduation

Farish Family

Seeley and Hope getting sprayed with silly string

My sister, Seeley, graduated from MATC (Mountainland Applied Technology College) and got her cosmetology license back in June 2011. She works at a salon and unfortunately for her, she has earned the privilege of doing my hair for as long as she lives in Utah. :) I have been majorly slacking on this blog, so I wanted to put these few pictures up now. James was at the graduation too, he just took all these pictures. Good work Seeley!

Side Job

Can you find James?

I went to one day and saw James (holding his red flag) on the homepage.

My dad has been a volleyball referee for years and years. I used to go to college games with him and sit in the stands by myself and just watch. My dad liked me to come with him so he could drive in the carpool lane in CA and I loved to go and watch awesome players like Misty May at Long Beach State. Anyway...since my parents moved up to Utah, my dad has coached (or coaxed??) James into becoming a line judge. So James has been lining some BYU and University of Utah games these past few seasons. Although I hate that most of the games are on Friday and Saturday nights, I do like to spend the extra moola! Thanks for working so hard James (and Dad)!

P.S. - See told you I'd post! More to come. I promise. After posts like this, I know you're excited.

P.P.S - Do you like the new look of the blog? I couldn't go back to sleep after Jimmer woke up at 3am asking for soda. What the heck? Are the new fonts showing up?

I will post.

Come on Michelle. You can do it!
