Mom, Dad and Landon came to visit! It was really nice to have them here. On Pioneer Day we went to the Mormon Battalion Center in Old Town and Jeff, Lisa and Marc came along. That was really cool. They just remodeled the whole place and it's really nice, fun and interesting. It was very interactive. They had pictures that talked and told the stories. It was kind Disneyland-ish. They had an outside area where you could pan for gold and play the fiddle. Landon and I partook in that. After that we ate some Mexican food in Old Town and went to an old fashion candy shop. On Monday Landon and I went to the beach. It was really overcast, but we laid out and played with the sand a bit. Then we decided to give the cold water a try. It was cold. We had a lot of fun getting in and and playing in the waves though. The waves were breaking right on the beach so it was really easy to get taken out by them even in knee deep water. We body surfed in the shallow water for a while. We got a little bruised from that but we had a ton of fun laughing our heads off. Can't wait until they come again!

Looks like we would have made a great addition to the Mormon Battalion!

Hello. I've been around. I've been in Portland. I've been in Provo. I've been in Logandale. I've been to the Cabin. I went and worked in Portland for two weeks. It rained a lot. I went to visit family and friends in Utah. Tibi and I went swimming all week with cousins while we were there. It was really fun. I went to the MOA and the french bakery in Provo with Nicole and Yosh. We also went to SLC to listen to Floyd and Von sing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. That was really great. In Logandale I had fun with people in the ward and went to activities. Mostly went swimming everyday because it was too hot to do anything else. I went night fishing on the lake also. That was really enjoyable. Now I'm back in good old Carlsbad... Tender Mercies. :)

In other news, I am trying to learn the guitar. Trying.
