The week following Newport Tyson and I decided to make a surprise visit to Utah. I don't think I have ever seen my mom more ecstatic. We came unknowingly at the perfect time. We arrived for the week of Heber Fair Days. This is my ultimate favorite week of summer. The first night we stopped by the park for free hot dogs, watermelon, and soda pop.

We walked over to the skate park to watch Josh and Tate show us their mad skills on their bikes. I have to say they were very impressive.

We were able to see all of my friends. Ben and Maggie joined us for dinner at Trio. This is one of our all time favorite restaurants, not to mention the location where Tyson took me on our first date.

Nick and Cortney's dog had the cutest puppy. I couldn't wait to see him in person. They named him hot chocolate and how fitting it is. Madison and hot chocolate entered the puppy contest. She ended up placing first. We were so happy we got to be there.

I couldn't stop laughing at this pair that entered the look a like contest.

We enjoyed the parade. It was fun to see Josh on the Wasatch High School Football team float. I can't believe he is going to be a sophomore. Watching the parade sure brought back my cheerleading days. I loved marching in the parade in my new cheer uniform.

Later that evening Tyson was able to attend his first rodeo! We had the best time eating corn on the cob and watching the fireworks. Earlier that night my mom made me a delicious birthday dinner and not mention a fantastic cheesecake. We had such a great time visiting friends and family. It was more difficult than I thought it would be to leave. Nothing beats summer nights in Utah. I am glad that Tyson was able to take part in just a few reasons why I LOVE UTAH!

When we arrived back in California it was time for Tyson to start work at James G. Parker Insurance. His sweet dad surprised him with a brief case. Since we don't have any kids starting school and being the cheesy wife that I am, I had to take a picture of his first day of work.

We celebrated my 25th Birthday. I can't believe how old I am. Tyson spoiled me and made my day oh so special. He made me a coupon book, gave me a gym bag full of new shoes and workout clothes, and surprised me with my favorite flowers.

He took me to my favorite restaurant in Fresno called Sukanya. We were completely stuffed but it was worth every bite. Thanks babe for the best birthday yet.

This past weekend Tyson's cousin Katie Cleveland, now Kenington was married in the Fresno Temple. It was neat to be there for Jake and Katie's sealing. It was wonderful to be reminded of the amazing promises.

They too had their reception at Fort Washington Country Club. It was nice this time to actually be able to eat the food. Her reception was beautiful and her cake was divine. We danced the night away with all of the cousins and grandpa Cleveland.

This month has been a crazy one but we feel so blessed to have been able to spend the time we did with my family.
