Newport Beach!




Little, old men relaxing at the beach (:


Little Owey!!

Girls Night Out! Our Last time all together, LoLo leaves on her Mission to Copenhagen on Wednesday!!!!! We Love her!

LoLo...we are going to miss this fun, sweet girl...I mean Sister Brown.

Happy 28th Jeff!! Lauren Made this adorable motorcycle cake for him...so nice of her!

The little boys were so excited to give Jeff Candy...mostly just so they could eat it!


WALLE!! They were so excited to see this cute movie


Every year my family meets up for our family vacation in Newport Beach. We had so much fun going to the pool, beach, hanging out together, eating good food, and just relaxing. My parents are so generous to provide such a fun vacation! Thanks so much MOM and DAD!! We loved being there with you! It was also Jeffs Birthday while we were there. We had a fund day having a yummy breakfast at RUBY's DINER, seeing WALLE, hanging out at the pool, and then having yummy steaks and a cute cake made by Lauren. Happy Birthday Jeff! YOu are such a great brother and friend. I love ya tons! This is also a bitter sweet time cause it was our last time being together as a whole family. My sister Lauren (LoLo) is leaving on her Mission to Copenhagen, Denmark on Wednesday! We are going to miss her so much but we know that she is going to be a wonderful sister missionary. She has such a strong testimony and has such a go getter attitude. The people will love her bubbly, loving, caring, friendly personality. We Love you so much Lauren!! We will be thinking of you on Wednesday when you go into the MTC!! WAHOO for SISTER BROWN!!!

Such cute pics of your adorable family!! And so exciting for your sister. My brother just left the MTC this morning for Denmark!! It is so cool that your sis and my bro are in the same mission! :) My bro has loved learning the Danish language and from his phone call today I can tell he has already gotten a good understanding of it and speaks it quite well for only spending 9 weeks learning it! Yay for Denmark!!! :)
