Oh the summer

So it has been a long time. I am a horrible blogger, but I guess things have been kind of busy. I haven't written since March, so I guess I can do an update month by month because a lot of things have happened.
Let's start with April
Samuel's parents came to visit the first week of April because Steve (Samuel's step dad)'s son Trevor and his wife had a beautiful baby girl, Abagail. We got to spend a lot of time with them. Jolene, Katie and I had girls' night during the priesthood session of conference and we ate at Goodwood and went to see The Knowing. It was really fun. My play for New Play Project also showed that week. The whole family came opening night and we went out for pie afterwards. We had some family dinners and that was nice. Samuel and I both finished up finals for winter semester and we were excited for a fun summer and a nice little break. We also found out that I was pregnant, and not doing too good, so April was a rough month for us.
In May, we moved to Samuel's Grandpa Bezzant's basement. We love it here. It is beautiful. I celebrated my 20th birthday and had a little get together and that was really fun. We haven't done too much this month except work a lot and have some family get togethers. One of the many good things about living at grandpa's is that we get to see the family a lot and that is really nice. At the end of the month, we went to the doctor and heard the heart beat of the baby and that was pretty exciting. We also got ready for our trip to Texas for Chris' graduation from high school.
June started with our trip to Texas. We loved being there. We did a lot. One of the high lights of the trip was the No Doubt concert. They played with Paramore and I love both of them. I have been a fan of No Doubt for a very long time and I wanted to see them in Utah, but things didn't work, so it was sweet getting to see them at home. They put on an awesome show. We saw a lot of friends and family and that was fun. We ate at some sweet restaurants since Utah Valley doesn't really have too much. It's sad actually. There are so many things they are missing out on without the restaurants. Graduation was fun. I can't believe my little brother is 18 and done with high school. It seems weird. But it is also weird that I have been married almost a year and I am pregnant. Man, how things change. On the way home, we were told that Samuel's cousin Kristan had died, so that slightly dampened our trip home. But we were still excited because we knew that Jolene was here because Katie was at EFY this week. Despite the rough circumstances, we still did a lot with Jolene. She bought us a ton of stuff for food storage and that was way sweet. We are really excited about that. I got to meet people in the family that I had yet to meet. The viewing was Friday night and Saturday morning and then Saturday at noon was funeral. The viewing was hard for me; I don't do too good with things like that. But the funeral was very beautiful. The spirit was there to help ease the pain and start the grieving process. It was very nice. It was nice having family here. We had a full house for a little bit. Next week, I go to the doctor for another baby check-up, so more news to come.
But that's a good update for now.
