So last weekend we had small get together with some of us Upland High Schoolers that still live in the area. We had a great time catching up and meeting everyone's families. Below are a few pictures. This is Natalie Karyn and I. We have known each other since we were 12. We like to think we have not aged a bit.
Here is a picture of all of the Uplanders.
All the husbands had a great time playing Rock Band. I love that Keith is so in to his singing that he has to plug his ear so he can hear better. Very Professional. I expect to see them go on tour soon. We had a great Evening. Thanks Natalie and Jerry for letting us come to your house.
Hello all! Well we have safely made it to Southern California. We are settled into our apartment and are still looking for a house. Life here is good. The weather is great. Today is our 6th Wedding Anniversary. I can't believe we have been married for 6 wonderful years. I love you babe. So to celebrate we went with my Sister Stacey and her Husband Adam to a nice steak house in Beverly Hills called Wolfgang's. The place is beautiful. The food was fantastic. They even had a remote control for their toilets. It was a little intimidating at first. You walk in and the toilet seat lifts up on its own and the seats were heated. It was a toilet/boudette (Spelling). Anyways long story short it was interesting. Then to top the evening off Larry King came and sat at the table next to us. He looks exactly the same in real life. It was fun to pretend we were rich for a evening. Below are a few pictures of the restaurant and Larry King in case you don't know who he is.
We had our 1st annual Hatch family reunion this year. We rented a house up in Zion's canyon for a week. We had a blast. Below are a few pictures. We did a ton of things but I was to busy relaxing and forgot to take a lot of pictures. So here is what I did take. I bought a package of 700 water balloons. Who would have thought that would not last us the whole vacation. I think the husbands had more fun that the little kids. But that might be because the husbands were hogging the balloon launchers. Sadie was digging the noddles but who wouldn't. Ashlyn loved the big kids. She followed the boys around all week. Luckily they didn't mind. She is such a tom boy. Molly and Mark you are going to have your hands full. They had a really nice swimming pool at this resort. We spent most of our days soaking up the sun. ok I hate this picture of me. But Evie and I were twins this day so we had to have our picture taken.
So one day we sent all of the boys off to go shooting for the day. Some how this picture came back on my camera. I was a little concerned. That is a lot of White bellies. Anyways we had a wonderful week. We had I believe 36 people staying in one house. And we all still loved each other by the end. Amazing. We did miss Cooper who is on his mission in Texas and Molly's husband Mark who was starting a new job. Hopefully they can make it next time.
I have a little catching up to do. I have not blogged in a while. It has been a crazy couple of weeks. So a few weeks ago we invited a few friends up to Keith's parents house to camp. We camped in the yard (well everyone did but keith and I we cheated and slepted inside all of our camping stuff is in storage) and watched a movie outside on a big sheet. We had a great time. Below are a few pictures.
This is a picture of the kids watching the movie. Keith had a great idea of tying glow sticks around the kids necks so that we did not loose them at night. They loved it. This is a picture of Jada after she stole 2 hot dogs and a hamburger from the little kids. You would think that she would learn her lesson but she never does.
It has been a whirlwind of a week. As most of you know we have been building a new home hear in Vancouver Washington. The day before we were scheduled to close on the new house we decided to accept a Job offer that will take us to Southern California. So in the words of LL Cool J I'm goin back to Cali! Wish us Luck!!!!!!
My camera broke and I had to go and get a new one so I am a little behind in posting house pictures. A lot has changed in the last couple of weeks. The outside of the house is painted. Sorry I could not get a good picture of it. Either way I took the picture I got either the honey bucket or the workers van. I will try and get a better picture next time. Plus we have kitchen cabinets and tiles and our wood floors have been laid but not stained yet. This is the view from our back windows
