We are updating! I know it’s only been two months, but we thought, “What the heck, let’s update early.” So we are! Here’s a run down of what we had going on, pictures included!
Kristen braved the two-day trip in a car out to Utah with Auston, Audrey and four of the five Noonans.
She stayed for over two weeks and was able to visit lots of family!
After Everyone arrived home safely, we visited Chicago. We spent some time on the shores of Lake Michigan and also went to the Harry Potter Exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry!
October didn’t slow down at all. Steve was interviewing in Chicago, Milwaukee, Grand Rapids, St. Louis and Indianapolis. We also spent a week in California.
In California, Grandpa and Grandma Ririe were in Newport for the first half, then Steve’s family came down for the last part to go to Disneyland.
With Grandpa and Grandma Ririe we went to Church and got to see the beautiful Newport Temple, we cruised around Balboa Island on a Duffy, walked along the ocean and went to Disneyland.
Yeah, the convertible was the only car the rental place had left!
We even found time to celebrate Steve’s Birthday.
When Steve’s Family Arrived it was more Disneyland, it really is the happiest place on Earth (until it’s naptime)!
The absolute cutest little Princesses Dancing! ( Audrey and her cousin Taylor)
The next day we just re-cooped at the beach, and did a little shopping in Downtown Disney!
Just three days after getting home, Steve had a Trial Team Tournament in NYC! Of course he didn’t take a camera, but he had a great time. He hasn’t found out his scores yet, but felt good about his performance. He and his teammate when to a Broadway play and got to spent a day with Minde, Tyler Chase and Riley.
Wheww! What a month, Steve was gone more days in October than he was home, and now it’s time to gear up for Finals (even though they aren’t until the second week in December). I guess that’s life, busy busy.
We’ll update soon with Halloween pictures, I promise, at least within a couple of months!
