On July 28, 2010 Grandpa Murray Allen passed away. We were so sad to see him go but know he is so happy where he is now. Jeff was really close to his grandpa and over the years jeff and I have been married I got to know him too. Jeff was named after his grandpa Murray, (Jefferson Murray allen). So he had that special little bond with his grandpa. When I met murray for the first time, the first thing he asked was how to spell murray, I spelled it for him and he replied you know that his Jeff's middle name right? :) we loved his stories and his big smile. He was such an example to us and we will miss him lots.

While Jeff and I were in California we wanted to go to the New Port Beach Temple and do a session there. The Temple was beautiful. It was nice to get away for those few hours and be in such a beautiful temple. I am so thankful that we have place that we can go and reflect and get away from the world.
This Picture has a funny story. So we had totally planed on going to the temple while in cali, we even packed our temple bags to make sure we go. Well the morning we are getting up to go Jeff realizes he doesn't have church clothes. So This is jeff in my dad's shirt, tie, and slacks along with his awesome tennis shoes! It makes for a good memory.
In July we got an invitation to go to cali with my mom and dad. My dad was going for work so he said if we wanted we could tag along and we would go to disneyland for a few days. For those of you who know me well, know that I would never pass up disneyland so of course we went. So Jeff and I made the drive down there and met up with my parents a day later. The first hotel we stayed in made our feet black so luckily we only stayed there one night. I guess the saying is true, you get what you pay for. The next day we met up with my parents and had a good breakfast and Denny's then went to disneyland. We had a lot of fun but it was july which means its super crowed and super hot. One of the days we were there we slept in and then hung out at the pool while my dad and mom worked. Later that night we went and had a crab dinner. Now when I say we I mean my mom, dad and jeff had crab and I had steak :) My dad Also rented a mustang so it was a lot of fun driving around cali in that. It was a pretty relaxed trip, we went to the beach and the temple. I was happy to spend time with my mom, dad, and my husband. Here are some pictures from our trip.
First off, we had a Great 4th of July. I ran the Freedom run 10k this year. I was so proud of my self, I finished in 1 hour in 2 min. And as usual I had a blast running with my dad. Right after I went down to the parade route to watch the parade with my family. I have never been much of a parade person but its tradition in Jeff's family so I enjoy being there with everyone. After the parade every year we go to my Grandma Herbert's house to have fried chicken and homemade root beer. I look forward to this every year. Then later in the afternoon we go and have a picnic in the park with the carter family. But we ended up at Nate and Tiffany's swimming and eating, which was loads of fun. Here are a few pictures:
