Long Beach!

This is my husband, aren't you jealous??? hahaha, well here I am, updating after FOREVER of not updating. Sorry! So last weekend, 3/19-3/22, Rob was able to go to Long Beach, CA (I joined friday night) for a National Aeronautics and Astronautics Conference. He is a member of AIAA (The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics). He originally signed up through BYU and then got to go to this pretty cool convention, all expenses paid, with wife invitation :) So he headed up with 7 others from his school in a big van on Thursday morning at 6. Poor guy, haha. Then went to some conventions that had some really big words and long explenations, that if you are interested you can ask him because I can't remember at all... But he thought it was pretty cool. I was able to join him by Flying JetBlue (Thanks Mom!) and got in Friday night about 8:30. We stayed at the Marriott right next to the airport, really really nice place btw.
So Saturday came and we decided we wanted to go out and do something. After about an hour of trying to figure out wat ot do, we got on the bus and headed to Long Beach Downtown. We were just hoping we got on the right bus haha.
As you can see, we made it okay :) We found this really cute little strip mall (behind Rob) and that led us to the Aquarium and Queen Mary.

You can see in inbetween us in the distance, apparently Queen Mary gave it to us because she wanted a NEW vacation ship, apparently this one wasn't big enough or goo enough!!!!

SO then we went to the Aquarium, we decided that we needed to go somewhere and spend some money... ouch... but well it's pretty cool :)

We got to touch GIANT Stingray, see the sharks, the jelly fish, and the playful seals. It was fun, Rob was a little disapionted because he thought it was Sea World, but I broke the news to him and then he understood why he couldn't find REALLY big fish.

Over all it was a really fun, almost free, mini vacation :) We drove back in that aweful van on Sunday and arrived about 7:30pm... I am proud to say that compared to who Rob went with, Rob is like a Jock hahaha, those guys were beyond the nerd scale! I mean one of them wears goggles when he bike rides through campus so that he doesn't get stuff in his eyes hahaha, sorry but that was really funny to me :)

So today is the day that I sent Rob's immigration papers!!!!! YAY!!!! Now we just wait. But it's so great to know that we have officially started the process and will hopefully be hearing from the USCIS office soon :) Everyone please pray for us to get this done quickly!
I was sick yesterday with the stomach flu from 5 in the morning to 3 in the afternoon, so naturally I didn't go to work. Yeah well when I got there EVERYONE was joking that I was pregnant!!! NO... If you hear these rumors, they are just rumors, one of our kids in Primary was sick, so the little darling passed it to me... I love those kids haha, jk I really do. Today I am feeling awesome and am NOT pregnant... Don't think though that it didn't cross our minds for a couple of scarry moments. :)
Anyways, Rob is going to the AeroSpace Conference in Long Beach, CA this weekend and hopefully if flights allow it, I'll be able to join him and maybe visit Natalie, Brian, and their beautiful babies :)
Happy St. Patrick's Day!

It's about time haha

I know, it's about time! it's been a whole month! but it sure has been a busy one, and yes I have pictures :) so totally worth the wait!

This may look like a regular
piece of garlic but it's not, it has a plant
growing out of it :) We don't even have to water it.
Easiest plant on the earth haha

So this is a picture of the Peter Brienholt concert we went to at BYU, this guy is hilarious! It was so much fun! It's was nice to get out of the apartment and really do something in a town that there is nothing to do.

This is Rob and I working on Rob's airplane for his ME Mechanical Engineering class, it's pretty sweet, the things you see are the wings :)

This is us at the Y on the mountain :) We took
this hike on the 21st for the need of doing
something fun and none lazy
So that's what's been going on in a nut shell, and now it is time to say goodnight :)
