My Dad

Dear Dad,

I like playing with you and going on walks. I also like watching movies with you and when you tickle me. I like eating dinner, lunch and breakfast with you. I like helping you and watering the garden with you. And that's it. Happy (a little late) Father's Day!

new toy

This year for our anniversary, we decided it was time to get a new camera. Luckily we've been up to no good, so we've been able to test it out. Earlier this week we had a little visit by one of Andy's cousins. We went to the Santa Monica Pier and played for a bit.

This was the remains of our anniversary dinner. YUM! We were thrilled to learn that we now can go to Cafe Rio anytime, instead of waiting for a trip to Utah. We were able to share our delicious meal with our good friends...who became fast fans.

just toying around.

book review

A couple of years ago I decided I should read a classic novel. I found a copy of Gone With The Wind at a library book sale when we lived in Portland. But I didn't start reading it until we moved here. I can't remember exactly when I began reading it, but it sure took me long enough (the sucker is a little over 1000 pages). But I'm proud to say that I finally finished it a couple of weeks ago! And then to celebrate we watched the movie (which now I love and doesn't seem very long:)
I would recommend everyone to read this book (if you haven't already). This may seem weird, but I loved how the main character was not your typical normal, good-hearted, sweet girl. She was selfish, conceited, and hateful...someone that you love to hate. But in the end you can see how she gradually changed and learned to love others, but when it came time to declare her love...she was too late. You do feel a bit sorry for her, but you get the feeling that she'll turn out ok.
Now, what next shall I read? Any suggestions?
