Huntsman Cancer Foundation's sole purpose is to fund the mission of Huntsman Cancer Institute: to understand cancer from its beginnings, to use that knowledge in the creation and improvement of cancer treatments, to relieve the suffering of cancer patients, and to provide education about cancer risk, prevention, and care.
My friend works for a diamond company that donated to this event, so she got a table, and that is how I got to go . The theme was "Hope on the Range," cowboy themed held at the Grand America Hotel. It was so fun. There were people there that I never thought I would meet. People were donating left and right. It was amazing to see. I think they raised in one night over $500,000. There were 2 auctions. One a silent one and the other with a real auctioneer. You know, talking all fast. That was pretty cool to see. I met some great people. I met Elder Ballard, and Elder Scott. It was neat to see them in a normal setting and helping out with this cause. Here are so pics from the night.
Yes, we got to take the sweet center pieces home.
This was the Auctioneer. I couldn't even understand him when he did his thing...
What is a cowboy theme without Rodeo Queens? The thing I found amazing about them is they were sporting all leather. Yes their entire dresses were made out of real leather. Can we say hot and sticky.
We make such cute cowgirls.

I'm not excited for the winter months ahead, because I am to much of a baby to run in the snow. So its inside treadmill time again.
I am truly grateful that I can run.

What is a reunion without matching shirts??
Our first day in Newport I was so excited to get down to the beach but Garrett was still so tired from driving until 3 am the night before. So I tried to make it difficult for him to fall back asleep. :-)
Crystal Cove is turning into my favorite beach. The shake shack is good.
We ventured back to our old home, Huntington Beach. I miss living there. It is so pretty.
One day we went down to Dana Point. It was more of a cove so you can rent Kayaks and things. we had so much fun. The waves were a little challenging to get through.

I wanted to give Jaime a break so Brad and her could get some things done. I took Abbie and Lillie to this sweet river pond/splash pad thing. It was so fun. Then we met up with Scott and McCall and swam at their pool. Fun Summer day in the sun!
