Vacation

Our trip to California was very fun!! We only wish it could have lasted longer. Being there made us realize that we want to move back to California. We like Utah a lot and we will miss the friends we have made if we move, but we really enjoy California. Even if it's not at the end of this year, we would still like to move back there when Scott graduates. Anyway, we had a lot of fun on our trip. After looking through my pictures, though, I realized I didn't get pictures of everyone. I wish I would have gotten pictures of Kerrie, David and Jill, Stacy and her family, more of Grandpa Greg and Grandma Julia, and more of Grandma and Grandpa Price. Next time we will have to get more pictures of ya'll. Anyway, here are a few of my favorite pictures from our trip. The first day we got there we played with Kerrie and Allie, mostly in my mom's backyard. She has a beautiful backyard that you could get lost in.
Scott and Allie!
Allie pushing Hannah in the swing. Allie loved to be around Hannah!! It was so cute.
The second day we were there, we took Hannah in my mom's pool for the first time. I think the cold water scared her at first but she eventually got used to it.

The third day we went to New Hogan Lake with Scott's parents, his brother David, and my dad and Vickie to try out the new boat. Hannah wore a life vest, just in case. She seemed to like riding on the boat and even fell asleep for a little while.
This is Scott's brother, David, knee boarding. He was the only one brave enough to do it.
Scott and my dad battling it out on the tubes.

On Sunday we went to visit Great Grandpa Sprague (aka, Scott's grandpa). It was his first time meeting Hannah.
Monday we went shopping with Grandma Julia and fed the ducks at Elk Grove Park. The geese kind of scare me, though, because they can be violent when it comes to getting food.
That night we had a nice meal prepared for us by my mom and Dave, in celebration of our 3rd year anniversary.
We tried to take some family pictures in my mom's backyard, so here is one of them.
All I have to say is "what a cutie!"
Hannah feeding the ducks (and yes, she is too small for that stroller). Yesterday we drove home back to boring old Utah. Hannah actually did very well in the car. We might have to make these trips more often:) Today we are unpacking and Scott and I start up school again. We're already counting down the days until our next vacation.

Cute pictures! Who took the family portrait? It looks great. Anyway, we miss ya already. We hope you can go to CA again in August.

PS I'm so jealous about boating. I wish I could have stayed another day. Looks like you had a great time.

Adorable pictures! I can't believe we didn't take pictures of Hannah and Montana together!!! Oh well, guess you'll just have to come back and visit...or better yet, come back for good! Sure, you'll miss your friends, but you'll have us to hang out with! :)
It was so good to see you...Hannah is gorgeous and its so fun to look at our lives and how far we've come. I love that even though life has changed and time has gone by, we can still keep in touch!
Love ya,
Stacy

It looks like you guys had a lot of fun! I wish I could've been there! I love the family picture too. Hannah is so pretty- I love her eyes. Can't wait to see her again. I think we're coming to Utah for the 4th of July- hope you guys are in town.

Hi Sprague Familia,

How's everyone doing. I LOVE the pictures especially the family portrait. Your mom's backyard is beautiful! I'm glad to hear that you all had a great vacation. Maran, thanks to you, I was able to get Madison some clothes at the childrens place and received them yesterday. I sometimes shop in the store but never bothered to shop on-line. I bought her 7 items and I paid less than $35.00. I was able to apply a coupon, too. Thanks, again. I was laughing at the picture of Hannah in her stroller b/c she's too small and Maddie is too BIG!! :0) I tried her in one b/c both her strollers are big but it didn't work. ha,ha! I'm really going to send you all some more pictures this weekend. I'm so busy w/patients all day and all my time is dedicated to Madison when I get home, I seem to forget alot of things. Congrats on winning the weight contest. Take care. Talk to you all soon.

Maran,

One more thing, I have some more coupons to the children's place, so if you want to do more shopping, let me know and I'll give you the online coupon code.

Love,
Teresa & Madison

I would have loved to play with your adorable baby in beautiful CA...but I chose to do some calculus and statistics instead. And I'd chose it again if given the same opportunity.

OK, not really---sarcasm is extremely hard to portray in written words. You need funny faces and uni-brow (me, not you Scott).
