This is Why I Love Grandmama and Grandpapa's House.

Yesterday rocked my world.
But first, lets go to Sunday, which rocked it even harder.
After church, after dinner, we went walking along the most beautiful beaches in the California.
First, we went to Baby Beach, where I tried my hand at stand-up paddle boarding.
Grandpapa was kind enough to ask a man to let me try his board. It was amazingly fun.

Then, we made our way up to a new beach called Salt Creek. GORGEOUS.
It is the beach that numerous 6 million dollar lots and multi-million dollar homes overlook.
It is also those homes' backyards.
And it is the most beautiful beach I have ever seen.
We all had tons o' fun.

Our House, in the Middle of the Beach.

I'd Rather Be Sailing.

Happy Feet.

Grandpapa and Girls.

We kind of love each other.

They kind of love each other, too. Forever. Into the Sunset.

Camino Capistrano

Would you like to know my absolute, most favorite place to be?
Camino Capistrano.
Subcategory places include Grandma and Grandpa's House, Grandma and Grandpa's swimming pool, and Dana Point Harbor.
Dana Point Harbor is amazing. This is where I first fell in love with boats and sailing. From Dana Point, you also have a perfect view of the Pacific Ocean. It is gorgeous, especially right around the time the sun sets.

 One day, I will be a member of the Dana Point Yacht Club. This is also where I will be storing my Sailboat (Name Pending).

Last summer, I took the Dana Point Stroll with none other than the Sister Dano. This is what we saw last time:

Last night, Grandpapa, Papa, and I all took The Dana Point Stroll. 
It was so amazing.
I have been waiting for that walk since we were here last Summer.
It was even better than I remembered it. It always is.
You can't get better walking company than the Dennis Agles.
Unless, of course, you throw in a Grandmama, a Mama, a Smushy, and a Sister Dano.


It's that time of year again...
Time to pack your bags, pile in a car, and take a road trip down to California!!
The ride was a long one, but a fun one.
Included on the list of activities was singing loud, laughing hard and sleeping.
We were able to complete all of them.
Smushy took some time to make it so you, too, can feel part of the experience:

Can we pretend that airplanes...

Hey folks. Today is the day and I am so excited my heart might explode.
I can't wait to tell you all about it.

Last night was amazing.
Bree Lena came over and we watched the final episode of my favorite TV show, Heroes.
I must recommend this show to everyone. It is amazing.
It was what Bree Lena and I did on our Friday and Saturday nights. And sometimes Mondays. And sometimes Wednesdays.
It is just that amazing. I recommend it to the highest degree.

Also, it was dear Aria's last night in Utah AND there was a meteor shower.
So, Smushy, Bree Lena and I all crashed on Aria's lawn and watched the amazing night sky.
It was so beautiful and so incredible.
Nature is beautiful and Space is amazing.
Stars are fantastic and shooting stars are indescribable.
Wishes were made...

Oh Happy...

CELEBRATION!! With a stomach bug, but a celebration none the less.
I took my last final today so I am officially done with summer semester at BYU.
It was crazy. No. That is an understatement. It was slightly more than crazy.
But oh I am so happy...

Tomorrow, at this time, I will be listening to Jack Johnson.
I will be watching Jack Johnson.
I will be experiencing the best moment of my week.
Oh Jack Johnson, so happy...

Then, on Saturday, I will be on my way to the happiest place on the Earth.
The beach. Where I can be happy. And enjoy the sun, the sand and the ocean.
Those are some of my favorite things ever.
Maybe I will try my hand at surfing.
That would be a dream come true.
Oh so happy...

Please forgive me.
Let me introduce you to Jack Johnson, since I so rudely did not before.
THIS is him before.
THIS is him now. It also gives you a little biography.
THIS is his song "You and Your Heart".
He is surfing because that's what he does.
He is singing because that's what he does.
As you can see, that is why I am excited for Friday.
Please enjoy him. I hope as much as I do.

Look at this entry's title.
Now back to this entry.
Now back at the title.
Now back to this entry.
It pretty much sums up my day, the title does.
Thank goodness it is almost over.
It's finals week.
Even with only 2 classes, it is driving me more mad than FIT finals week did, and that is saying something.
Nana always says that everything is worse when you are tired, and guess what. I am tired.
So I have come up with a cure to these days:
1. Prayers
2. Sleep
3. Crying
4. (Most importantly) HUGS.
Heartfelt hugs are such an act of service.
Those hugs make my day sunny and beautiful.
I'm going to need many more of those in the coming days.
Thank goodness I have good hug-givers in my lilfe.

Happy Sunday

Happy Sunday, my friends.
Sadly, it is almost over.

Church was really good today.
It was testimony meeting and the spirit is always strong in the Springville branch.
I should actually say it was Yuba Testimony day.
Yuba Lake had a huge impact on everyone, not just me.
It is so amazing to see how much one activity with people being friendly and kind to others can have such a lasting effect on others.
I feel blessed to be part of such a great group of people.

Church was really good today.
Did I already say that?
Well, it was.
We walked down our Yuba Lake memory lane, swapped stories and giggled lots.
Also, getting to know good people is so fun.
I should try it more often.
It brings fun stories to the dinner table.
And there is nothing better than giggles at the dinner table.
