It's always fun when Family comes!

I am completely lame and this is the only picture I have to prove that my family came to visit a few weeks ago. I am convinced a new camera would cure my problem of never taking pictures, but the Z-man is not so sure...I LOVE when my Family comes and am always SO sad to see them go. We had such a fun time and it made me want Christmas to come even faster! I can't wait to go home and play games, watch family home videos, and make fun of each other (mostly they all the just make fun of me...) and just party 24/7! Collin and Kendall have been working really hard in school. Zachary and I told them that if they got a 4.0 we would take them out to eat at any restaurant of their choosing or some other type of reward. Collin chose to eat at Tucanos while they were here which was delish as always! It was my Mom and Kendalls first experience and I think they loved it too. Kendall chose to get a manicure when I come home at Christmas- pictures of that to come. We spent our time relaxing, shopping, playing games, and of course eating. My family also got to come to my ward with me for the first time which I loved. Everyone loved meeting them and my Mom got to observe me in action with the Young Women- too funny!

Livin' it up in Las Vegas

Holy cow, I stink at updating this blog! It seems like time never slows down at the Johnson home, but we are partying like crazy and loving every minute of it! Last month Z-man's brother offered up their home down in St. George and we just couldn't pass up the opportunity for a little weekend getaway. We had a great time chatting in the car, watching movies, lounging by the pool and Visiting B and Tru in Las Vegas!
Of course we were there on Halloween when all the funnies come out. I was a little hesitant about going on Halloween, but it actually wasn't too bad. We definitely got some good laughs and good pics with all the crazies! Don't even worry that MJ was there, just chilling all night by himself. B didn't hesitate to get a shot with him!
We always take a picture by the fountains, it's tradition now.

LOVED cruising the streets of the Vegas with Britt and Tru- nothing better!

And our Las Vegas experience would not be complete without Z convincing us to eat a $6.00 steak and crab dinner at Jerry's Nugget and Casino- classy place. Of course I threw up later that night- I think it was the Ranch dressing that did me in.
We loved every minute of the warm weather and spending time together. We also ate at the Bear Paw Cafe in St. George for the first time, which was way good. I am stopping in there more often for sure!
