2: Caribbean Cruise | f e b r u a r y 2 0 0 9 | ST. MARTINS, ARUBA, CURACOA, ST. JOHN | We went on the Royal Caribbean Cruise for our belated honey- moon. We went with Bart and Sheila, the Hansons, the Martineaus, the Pickets, and the Rowberrys. The port was out of Puerto Rico.
3: In Aruba we went on a tour of the island in a side-by-side. In Curacoa we decided to go to the aquarium. I was lucyenough to pet and feed the sting rays. I also volunteered to have starfish put on me, which was a once in a life time experience.
4: St. Johns was a heaven on earth, straight off a postcard. We got off the boat in St. Thomas and took a ferry to St. Johns. We laid out on the beach and got to go snorkeling. We go to see fish that were so bright and colorful. This was such a fun vacation, Blake and I decided that cruising was defiantly the way to travel.
5: Lake Powell | August 2009 | We went on Dave’s house boat in Lake Powell. We went wake boarding (a lot), wake surfing, knee boarding, tubing, and jet skiing.
6: Family Photos
7: BYU-I Basketball | 2009-2010 | Blake has played on a number of BYU-Idaho basketball teams. Some of which included; the eighty-eighters, the thunder, and the hurricanes. We loved being involved and made lots of “basketball friends”.
8: Mexican Riviera Cruise | m a y 2 0 1 0 | MAZALAN, CABO SAN LUCAS, PUERTO VALLARTA | JD Premium has blessed our lives in so many ways, but one of my favorite ways was the Mexican Riviera Cruise we won. We drove with 6 other people to Las Angeles; where the boat left port. In Mazatlan we played in the ocean and found a delicious place to eat lunch. In Cabo San Lucas Blake and the guys went golfing, while the girls and I went shopping and para-sailing. In Puerto Vallarta Blake and I got to swim with the dolphins; which was so amazing.
12: River Rafting | The Dirty Derby
13: It’s funny, after Blake and I were married we joked that now we date other couples. I’ll like the girl, but he won’t like the guy, or the other way around. So when we became friends with Kevin and Kimmie Jackson it was exciting for us. We started doing everything together. It was funny, because Blake and Kimmie were so similar, and Kevin and I were so similar. Kimmie and I loved doing crafts, cooking, working out (zumba), scratching each other’s backs and just talking. Blake and Kevin did manly things like: golfing, playing basketball, cooking shrimp, and watching games on tv. We are so grateful for their friendship and were so sad when they moved to Spokane. | Boche Ball | Peeling Shrimp

15: b a c h e l o r s o f s c i e n c e i n i n t e r i o r d e s i g n | a p r i l 2 0 1 1 I thought this day would never come. . . Graduation. I can remember applying for the program like it was yesterday, and now I’m going to be done. Being in the Interior Design program has been one of the most influencing experiences. I am so grateful for all of the support from Blake, my family, and especially my professors. Graduating is definitely bittersweet; I’m excited to not have homework ever again, but it’s sad that I won’t be seeing my classmates. These girls (and David) have been with me for four years, and it has been an amazing journey. | W. Harris, T.L. McRae, T. Julander, N. Parson
16: We went to Puerto Penasco, Mexico as a JD Premium business trip. We went miniature golfing, and snorkeling. While Blake went to a Jack Nicolson golf course I went shopping and got a massage with the girls. | Puerto Penasco, Mexico
18: o u r t r i p t o SPOKANE
19: We went to Spokane with Sam and Liz Weller to visit Kimmie and Kevin. The main reason we went, besides to visit the Jacksons, was so the boys could play in hoopfest. Hoopfest is the biggest 3-on-3 street basketball tournament on the planet. That means over 7,000 teams, 3,000 volunteers, 250,000 players and fans, 458 courts spanning 42 downtown city blocks.
20: McCoy Family Trip Through Montana Dillon, Glacier Peak, Logan Pass, Many Glaciers, Avalanche Pass, Kalispell, and Missoula.
22: Golfing with Granny D
23: Driving Truck | Blake left for a whole month to drive truck in North Dakota. Luckily he came home the day of our three year anniversary. It was tough, but it made us appreciate each other even more when he got home. | Meanwhile. . . The Primary Presidency was in charge of the Halloween party. This was the costume I came up with.
24: eight weeks | twenty weeks | thirty weeks | expecting
25: The day we heard the exciting news May 9, 2011 (the day after Mothers day) The baby was expected on January 7, 2012 I was very blessed with this pregnancy, I never threw up or felt very sick. I was just very tired the first 3 months. I remember thinking how do you do this with more than one baby. I defiantly took advantage of this one being the first one, and | I took naps whenever I could. I worked at Design and Home Décor up until I was 9 months along (till the beginning of December). You were such an active baby. I did not have very much room for you to move. Your dad and I loved to hold up my shirt and watch you stick out different body parts and roll around. I did not crave anything too weird with you, I just loved eating anything tart.
