Once there was a pig…

by Emily Honsvick 0 comments


Once there was a pig... and it was huge! And it was best friends with a kangaroo next door. True story! Last week we went to a super fun Pumpkin patch here in Utah. My friends told me that I was about to see the biggest pig ever, I didn't believe them until I saw it. That pig was crazy huge!!! Emma got such a kick out seeing the big Bertha of a pig. Paisley (The little girl I nanny for now) just kept laughing and pointing at it.

Although the pig was cool, my favorite by far was the Kangaroo! I am now trying to convince Jake that we need one when we finally have his hobby farm that he desires. I think it is a great compromise. He gets cows and chickens and I get a kangaroo and goats haha.

But seriously, have you ever petted a kangaroo? They are so soft and cuddly. I love it. This guy in particular LOVED to be petted. That little animal made my day!

Emma, I think, could have stayed at the pumpkin patch all day long! Between the huge slide they had and the corn pit, this girl was in heaven. Sadly though, Lizzy loved it until she got too cold (we happened to have picked the coldest day to go) So when the 11 month old screams  says it is time to go, its time to go haha. Here are a few pictures of our adventures.

P.S The corn pit was So. Much. Fun!!!

Big Changes

Big changes are happening around here. Life is certainly about to get more interesting! After 3 and a half years we are officially saying goodbye to California and moving to.... BYU Icon Thats right! We are going back to school. And by we, I mean Jake. We are so excited to take this next step and have Jake get his MBA. This is going to be our first time living in Provo and we are so excited! With family and old friends living close by it is guaranteed to be a good time! So if you see a place to rent think of us ;) While we looking forward to the big changes, it is definitely bittersweet. We have had so much fun in California. We have loved being close to Jake's family and a couple of my family members. We have met so many amazing people out here that it will be sad to say goodbye. But I know that there are adventures waiting for us in this next chapter of our life. Now I have to take a minute and just brag about my husband. Jacob.Honsvick.Print.003 He is just simply amazing. He has worked so hard to get here and pulled many long hours. But throughout it all, he has made sure to keep our family his number one priority. I am just so proud of him and so grateful to have him as my husband. So here to two years of craziness ahead of us. There is no place else I would rather be.

Perfect Beach Day

A couple of weeks ago my sister and brother-in-law came to visit. To say we had a blast is a understatement! While they were here we of course just had to go to the beach. And of course if we are going to the beach we have to invite Jared and Kashari along. The weather was perfect. But, seriously, it was better weather then we sometimes have in the summer. Gotta love California.

We started the morning attempting our hand at crabbing and fishing. We ended up catching a couple of crabs. Which were delicious to eat, just saying... anyways while we were crabbing we were able to find a star fish and tons of little crabs walking around the rocks. It was so cool! Emma was even brave enough to touch a star fish once.

There was this seal that was swimming around the jetty that we were on. He was our sworn enemy. All morning long he would dive at our crab pots trying to get either our bait or our crabs. Once he had a star off with Mark, haha, all because we took the crabs out of the water before he could get to them. Sadly that seal ended up getting us back... he tore off our bait and then gloated. You might think that I am joking when I say he gloated. But he did! It was pretty funny though...



When at the beach it is a necessity to have a picnic and play in the water. Emma and Easton had a blast! Pure joy!



This picture makes Jake and I laugh every time. Its like they are planning a great escape or daring each other to go "touch the butt."

Later in the day we tried clamming. And by try I mean we really just played in the sandy mud. Best.Day. Ever!

It really was the perfect day to spend on the beach. Best of all was that we were able to be with some of our amazing family. This was an adventure that will definitely need to be repeated!

Saying Goodbye

by Emily Honsvick 0 comments


Saying Goodbye has never been easy, especially if it is someone you love dearly. A week ago yesterday I said the toughest goodbye yet. I said goodbye to my Grampa for the last time. (null) We had gotten the news earlier that week that my Grampa was not doing very good. He was in the hospital and it looked like he would not be coming home. What went from having a few months left, quickly turned into any day would be his last. Jake and I decided to make a last minute trip to see my Grampa and to have him meet Lizzy. I will forever cherish the last moments I was able to spend with him. It was such a blessing to see him one last time. My Grampa died a few hours after I left him. I will miss him, but I know that I will see him again. (null) Until that day comes, I will think of him whenever I eat ice cream, play checkers, sing, or play a instrument (Grampa loved music) and eat sugary cereal :) I am so glad that he wrote down the stories that he use to tell us because now, whenever I miss him, I can go back and read what he wrote. (null) I love you Grampa! "may God be with you till we meet again"

On the Mend

by Emily Honsvick 0 comments


Life for us is finally starting to get back to normal since the holidays. We are slowly on the mend after being sick for the past couple of weeks. At least we all got our sickness over at the same time. IMG_7848 IMG_1712 IMG_1722IMG_1675 Haha it made for some interesting days. With Emma having a double ear infection, all of us having a nasty head cold, and I having pink eye on top of that, it makes me even more thankful for my health... and for my hearing. Have plugged ears for a couple of weeks is no fun, let me tell you. But amongst the sickness I have loved cuddling with my girls. They just make me so happy! So here is to a healthy rest of the year. I am so ready to play again! IMG_7860 (Pictures were from our holiday vacation when we were all healthy ; )
