Kurt and I had the opportunity to spend the weekend (a couple weeks ago) in Baltimore!!! We were so glad we went cause we had such a great time. We spent the weekend with family and enjoyed spending time with our niece and nephews. We were able to go to the Ravens game and Conor (Kurt's little bro) met us from Philly to come see the game too. It was a last minute venture but worth every minute!

Ash and I couldn't resist wearing our matching 86 shirts:)

Kurt, me and Conor

Conor just had to make fun of us!

Major update cont. . .

So after California we had a week to get settled and then off to Montana we went for the vacation of a lifetime. As we flew out of the small airport in Queen Creek, Arizona our expectations were high of what we were going to be experiencing over the next week. We had heard all about the "Flathead", wake surfing (which we both had never tried) and how this would be the best vacation of our lives. Well. . . . . . . . . . . they were right. Rocky and Krystal definitely showed us a good time and many fond memories were made at Flathead Lake. Krystal summed up the trip pretty well in her blog post and I would just have to say ditto:) We had such an awesome time, surfing, canoeing, hot tubbing, boating, playing dominoes, BOGGLE! (Krystal hurry back to Arizona so we can play again!), making pizzas, picking rocks, papa Don's, video arcades, huckleberry ice cream (Liz, is it okay if we have some?) ping pong, DDR, reading by the lakeside, biking in the rain, picking cherries, Glacier National Park, the friendly mountain goat, trying to make cool noises that sounded like a band in the car but it didn't really work, being roommates with Liz again(well actually just sharing a bathroom with her again:), spending a whole week with my babe, living in a swimsuit, making new friends, eating great breakfasts, playing with Tate, SUNSETS, three sixes, 3:10 to Yuma, frisbee golf, golfing, jet skiing, tubing (Kurt and Rocky, we will get you back), almost sinking the boat, the tragic occurrence with Kent, Ben and the deer and the list could probably go on and on. We had the most amazing time and just want to say "thank you" to Rocky and Krystal (and the Tanner Family) for making it all happen. Here are just a few pictures that don't even do justice to how beautiful it is there.

Major update. . .

Here is a much needed update of the lives of Kurt and Carli. Now that we are back and settled in Arizona I can finally sit down and re-cap the month of August and what's been going on in September. The last week of our adventure in California ended with a bang. My mom came out to California for her birthday and spent a couple days with Alyssa and Kurt and I. We went shopping down at the fabric district, had a wonderful baby shower for Alyssa, ate delicious food, laughed til we cried, and last but definitely not least saw "WICKED"!!!! The show was amazing and definitely is on my list to see again. (Kurt is still undecided whether or not he will come next time, however, he did enjoy it:)) Here are a few pictures of our last weekend in California.

Go D'backs!!!

Don't ask me why I wore a Dodgers sweatshirt to a D'backs game. . . I am truly trying to be a good wife and be a Dodgers fan but when they play the Diamondbacks and lose I have to stick with my home team.

Los Angeles Temple & The Apple Pan

Kurt's family has a tradition of going to the Apple Pan after attending the LA Temple. After going there last night I have decided that is one tradition I would like to carry on. The temple session was amazing and it was great to go through another one of the beautiful temples we are blessed to live near.

Time flies. . . and I don't like it!

Well four months have gone by and I am just now updating the blog. So much has happened so I will just post a few pics of what we have been up to.

My little brother Greg left on his mission this week! It was a sad farewell for me but I am so excited to write letters and hear about his experiences. I will post pics when I get them from my Mom.

Also, We leave in a week for California!! Kurt is doing an internship with an architecture firm in LA and I get to go with him. We will be there for about 6 weeks so if you are in the LA area give me a call!!! Since I won't be working I will try my best to keep up with this blog.

I turned 23! Well almost a month ago. We love birthdays and of course I dragged mine out for about 2 weeks! It was awesome. . .

Date night at Oregano's . . . of course - oo lala

May 11, 2008 - Happy 1 Year Anniversary!! Kurt proposed at Gainey Ranch and we went to Bandera's after the proposal so we decided to relive that night for our one year. Life has been so wonderful and I couldn't ask for a better husband. I love you babe!

Check out the creepy gondolier- he definitely interrupted the romantic atmosphere with his obnoxiously loud singing and his stench.

B'd turned 16 woo hoo!!!!

D-backs Game!
