Beck in Concert!

Last night Shawn and I went to a Beck concert - it was fun to see Beck live and even more fun to have a Monday night date night. They were awesome. They don't dance around and have ton of pyrotechnics or anything - they just did their thing - I've added some songs to the playlist. I had a few people would say "Who's Beck?"
Who's Beck?! Here's Beck!

Passing along the information

I was at Shawn's cousin's blog and she had a great post about the importance of preventing gay marriage. It's one of those things that can easily be written off as it doesn't effect me, what do I care what they do, why not - I really like Ellen DeGeneres...
The truth is, it does effect us and we have the ability to help keep the sanctity of marriage as Heavenly Father intended, between a man and a woman. Arizona has this issue on the ballot this election- Proposition 102 - Voting yes says we want marriage in Arizona to be recognized only as union of one man and one woman.
I am including the link on Whitney's blog to the Divine Institution of Marriage from the Newsroom at lds.org.
I encourage you to read it and pass it along. It may help open your eyes on how this issue really can effect us.

Where have we been?

It has been way too long since my last blog - especially since we've had so much going on!

First Shawn turned the big 3-0!
We are way too young to be that old (lucky me, I still have time)!

Then, Joss, Jackson and I went to Montana to visit family and crash the O'Leary Family Reunion. Jackson is a Man's Man - he loved being with the guys - Pat Fleming couldn't put him down if he wanted to!

Poor Grampa Bear hurt his knee, but that didn't stop him from teaching Joss some soccer.

Then in Seattle, we had so much fun. Paige, aka Ampy Paige, was able to spend more time with us than we thought, so we made the most of it. We tried to do everything Seattle could offer, the zoo, the market, picking fresh blueberries:
