Fabulous Fourth!


This was such a fun 4th of July! I have the best news! My little brother Austin came for a visit with his girlfriend Dayna and....(drum roll please!).........

He proposed!!!!! He got on one knee at a beautiful spot on the beach, told her how much he loves her and gave her a beautiful rock! Doesn't get much better than that! :) They are such a darling and happy couple - so in love - and we are simply thrilled for them!

We had such a fun weekend having Austin and Dayna here! While we did several activities together, our favorite times were spent hanging around the house talking and laughing. These are some pictures of us at Point Loma (one of the fun things we did) and it was so foggy! We could hardly see the tide pools. Kind of cool looking though!




We also had a fun date night (dinner and a movie without kiddos), had a BBQ in the backyard, and on another night took pizza to the park.

Dayna had a little shadow the whole time she was here! Addison LOVES Dayna and had so much fun with her. Every morning she'd wake up in her crib shouting "Daya Austie...Daya Austie...Daya Austie!!!!" Then she'd run to Dayna as soon as she was out of bed and wouldn't leave her side!

Dayna was darling with both of my girls...and so was Uncle Austie!



Austin and Dayna - congratulations again on your engagement! You make a darling couple and we are so thrilled for you both. You will have a wonderful life together! Thanks for sharing your engagement with us and for the fabulous weekend. We love you guys!

YAY!! Congratulations Auzzie and Dayna!! Usually I dread the winter, but this year I can't wait for November to roll around!! You make a perfect couple and compliment each other so well. I'm so glad you were in California when you got engaged because Ken and Erin could dole out some seriously good marital advice - they've been at it for 10 years now and should know a thing or two! I'll be down next weekend and can't wait to see that rock in person! HOORAY!

Tell Austin Congratulations! I had heard the big news and I knew I could count on you to have some pictures :-) I can't believe he didn't take her to the reunion and make her memorize the names of the original twelve. They look very happy and I am excited for them. I already put the date on my calendar and I am looking forward to having a fun little vacation with my favorite cousins--it has definitely been too long!

Amber said...
