some reception pictures

so here are a few of the best of our reception pictures. our photographer, Robin, was great. she took almost 800 pictures and really did a great job capturing all the fun and all the details. I am really excited to finally have a few really good family group photos.

As for other news, we are almost finished moving. Our camping trip was amazing (pictures to come soon). Hailey got a little bored; three days of camping is probably a little bit too much for such a young kid, especially with no other kids around. She did however make friends with the group of UCLA students taking a trip before their masters program starts. By the time we left Arizona hot springs, they all knew her name. The beach was filled with a chorus of "Bye Hailey! Have a good trip Hailey!" etc, etc. it was cute. She is definitely an extrovert.

Recently I took this Career Discovery Series training class at work where we talked about different personality types and what career paths go along with those well. We took the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator personality test. I came out as an INFP, which pretty much fit me to a T, I was impressed. It was a very interesting opportunity for personal exploration, and I am very excited to continue doing career research and start setting goals to help me move in the direction I want to go. Time to figure out what I want to be when I grow up...

checking in

so it seems im not so good at this whole blogging thing...i just never remember that i want to write stuff down. so to check in, it has been an extremely busy month for us and its only the 18th. our reception was great, we had a lot of people turn out and it seemed that everyone had a really fun time. thank you dennis and gloria. (still waiting on pictures) then we started moving last weekend. not so sure yet how i feel about living with mike's parents for the next few months, but i think that the end result will be well worth it. mike may move to the day shift soon, which would be an amazing turn of events for our family. friday night we will drive out to nevada for our second canoeing trip to black canyon (we went for our honeymoon and now we are taking hailey with us on the same trip) super excited for that. hailey is too, she started trying to pack this morning, it was cute. then next weekend is hailey's 8th birthday, still dont know what we are doing for her, but we'll figure out something fun. so thats its for us so far...until the next time i am procrastinating...
