Smith Cousin Music Video 2014

every year, our family travels to North Carolina for beach trip. and every year (since 2010) we have been making a music video. it's always so fun to film during our trip and, of course, watch it all together. this year we incorporated a color fight into the filming. my uncle brian, the producer/director of the video, bought 100 packets of colored chalk for us to play with. we had a blast! i mean, how could you not? when the light was almost gone, we ran our colorful bodies over to the ocean and all played around trying to get the color off as best we could. we didn't do a very good job but still decided going out for ice cream was a must. we were stared at the whole night because, well, 44 of us were all crammed into a tiny ice cream parlor plus we had colored skin and hair. we were quite the sight, i'm sure.
this tradition is one of my favorites. it is so fun to run around our little island, messing around, and making memories with my cousins. and without further ado, i introduce the smith cousin music video 2014

if you are interested in our past videos-2010-2011-2012-2013-be my guest and take a look! they are quite fun to watch over and over again, if you ask me;)


4th of july festivities

we had a fabulous holiday weekend. although we were missing our families, we still managed to have a great time! our festivities started on the 3rd with a private mindy gledhill concert!! it was so much fun and she is so good. we sat outside and enjoyed an hour and a half of her playing any song of our choice. then we ended the night with some fireworks. on the 4th, scott got to attend the provo parade with our friends while i had to work. i then made a ton of cupcakes for a bbq while scott had to work. that evening we met up with friends for a bbq and a concert on a rooftop in provo. the concert consisted of songs from the woodstock. it was a beautiful night and we had a great time listening to old songs. the concert ended just in time for us to hop in the car and steal a great spot for the firework show. like we were right under them, it was awesome. we ended the night with some sparklers and s'mores. we had the best time for our first 4th together as a couple!! 


The Bench Wedding

on june 21st, my best girl morgan married one of the best guys, mckay. it was a joyous event and we couldn't be happier for them! they were married in arizona and boy, it was hot but we still had the best time. there was a nice dinner the night before and then the wedding and reception the next day. we love weddings, especially when its a good friend.
^^its so fun when a girlfriend gets married, it means all of my closest friends from high school have an excuse to get together and catch up. its always so fun to all be together^^


Summer Band Series

We had a very quick and fun weekend getaway to Arizona for our best friend's wedding. Plenty more on that later, but we returned early Sunday morning slightly depressed and very sleep deprived. After a nice nap and a very disappointing soccer game (dang those extra minutes!!) we decided we needed something to lift our spirits. Every Sunday evening in June, there is a band that plays in a near by park and we decided to check it out. We loved it!! The park is shaded by these huge trees and with the weather being so nice in the evenings, it was nothing short of relaxing to just lay down and enjoy the moment.
