Happy Anni to Us in Garmsich, Germany!

For our 2nd anniversary Sam booked us a couple of nights at Edelweiss Resort in Garmish (Germany). He totally surprised me. I thought we were going to go somewhere just for the day, but he had packed our suitcase, Londyn's suitcase, the pack n play, diapers... you name it and we were ready for a weekend away. I was especially surprised since we had been camping at the same place the weekend before. Turns out he even had this weekend booked before we ever went camping.

12 month check up!

I know it has been a while since I blogged! My laptop charger quit working, so I haven't had my laptop for over a week now. Totally hard for me... I am always doing something on my laptop. I decided to try and get caught up on blogging using Sam's laptop

On 9/7 Londyn had her 12 month check up. I had literally been dreading the day for... well, ever since I witnessed her 8 week shots. Pure torture for me. This post is mostly for me, because I want to remeber her precious-ness on this day. She is just so sweet and I was so proud of her for how well she did.

Austrian Adventure

Last Monday (Labor Day) when we drove home from Garmisch, we ended up having quite the adventure. We turned on the GPS and it showed 8 or 9 accidents on our route home, so we decided to take the alternate route which showed just a few minutes longer. We thought we were being really smart. 

Camping in Garmisch, Germany

Last weekend we had another four day weekend and so we decided we should do a little something. Especially since I was missing my little sister's wedding. Crazy, I know! We had to do something to get my mind off of the fact that the whole family was together, Jourdan and Josh were getting sealed in the Salt Lake Temple and they were going to throw a "Hawkes Party" for the reception.... and no one wants to miss one of those. 

So, we headed south to Garmisch, Germany, which is RIGHT at the base of the Alps, 10 minutes from Austria and honestly one of the most beautiful places I have seen. It was Labor Day and we went tent camping on an Army Post that has a beautiful and actually really nice resort. I am not sure how the Army secured real estate like that. We went with a few families from church, we cooked over the outdoor grill, made smores, watched fireworks, went swimming, etc. etc. It was an amazing weekend.

Last week, this guy got promoted! He is a warrant officer in the army and he flies helicopters. When he is not flying he has some odd and end type of things he does, but for the most part his unit seems to be goofing off when they aren't flying. They have lots of fun!
