Men in kilts and hawaiian shrits playing rock songs

So I can't get the video to loadand I'm so sad. My uncles name is Rob, I have no idea who Rod is and why I spent so much time talking about him... I just get so excited that's all.

Family, those who know you best and get your wierdness!

So what do you get when you cross Hawaiian shirts, Kilts, Sugar, and Fairies... The Hulse family reunion. I feel so bad for my poor husband, who was forced by me to come and witness the embarrassment of it all. So I'm used to this, so nothing was a surprise for me, but about half way through the night, Scott looked and me and said "Your family is so weired!" I don't think any of you would argue :) We had a lot of fun, and a lot of food. here are a few highlights I got on film

My uncle Rod, Chuck and Brian all wore Kilts and Hawaiian shirts, well Rod and Chuck wore the shirts, Brian was in full Scottish get-up, I didn't get a picture of him, these guys were funnier. Also trying to escape from this picture is my cousin Eric with his short hair, before this his hair was longer than mine.
My favorite cousin Christan came in from Cali. He is proudly showing his Dr. Pepper that my nephew kept trying to steal.
Scott and Hayden playing... something on the guitar. This was the highlight of my night because I like to show my husband off.
Don't my grandparents look thrilled, I think sugar has the opposite effect on them.

It's uncle Jay!! He hasn't been around for a while, and he is now a cowboy... Who got a little tipsy by the end of the night... I have really missed my uncles, and I know my dad does too, I mean these are his brothers after all. Sad, but my dad was unable to attend. He was in a really bad motorcycle accident, and was just getting home from the hospital. I went and saw him before the party, and he looked rough. He was out "treasure hunting" somewhere 5 hours from Bountiful, and fell off his bike. He's okay. He was knocked out and when he cam too he got his bike back to camp, loaded it in the trailer, packed up camp and drove 5 hours home!! My mom took him up to the hospital. He has 4 broken ribs, a broken collar bone, and a broken leg. Not to mention all the bumps and bruises all over his body. It's hard to see your father in that way, but he is in good spirits, and had a high tolerance for pain, that's for sure.
Anyway, below is a video of two Scottish/Polynesian men singing rock songs... Enjoy!
And if i can't get this video to upload, I'll post it seperate.

It's been so long since I'v e seen the ocean... guess I should.

Oregon was so much fun!! I really needed a vacation, as did Scott, and we had a lot of fun. Here are a few pictures that I chose to post because I liked them, there are more on my Facebook page if anyone is really interested. We stayed in a little tourist town called Seaside, and got to go to Tillamook, and Cannon Beach. It was a lot of fun. I'm very Grateful to Scott's parents for allowing us the awesome oppurtunity of being able to go!!

So we stopped at this look out along the Pacific coast, and there was this biker gang from Cananda headed to Orange county. I jumped out of the car and talked to them and got my picture with them. I think I made their day. Now if any of you mess with me... I got a biker gang to back me up!!
I've always wanted to do this, and I did.

Scott is so cool!!


This is one of my favorite pictures ever taken, I love the sunset behind us and we look so cute... Good times!!
So I loved Oregon, it was so laid back and calm, I loved the people, and the food, and the Salt water taffy. We had a really good time, and I think that I honestly could live there! Now I'm going to start my complaining, I must admit as much as I loved Oregon, I did not have the bests of times on this vacation. So I have a total of 5 people in my family, including me, and with in-laws and Nephews that total is now 9. We went to Oregon with 10 people, 10! I can't even think of 10 people that I actually like, let alone 10 people I'd want to travel with. Now planning for 10 people is hard, and I give Scott parents props for coming up with things to do for 10 people that met everyone needs. Even though we did so many fun things, some arguments still arose. Now in my family if you want your opinion, and desires to count you need to be part of the debate, so if you leave the debate, you are basically telling me that you don't care and your are going to do whatever the group decides. I still feel this is true. Apparently in Scotts family you can be there or not and still be an active voice, which is so weird to me. I also learned that traveling with 10 people no one is on time but me. I thought leaving at 9 o'clock meant being ready and leaving at 9 o'clock, clearly that means 10:20.
We shared a room with Scotts sisters and their husbands, which was nice, everyone was clean and we shared stuff, and we ate together, so I didn't mind that so much, but to end any arguments Scott and I chose to sleep on the Murphy bed in the middle of the main living room area, and give Scott's sisters and spouses the two bedrooms. Next time this will not be the case. I had no privacy, which being the only girl in my family I'm kinda used to. Now I wasn't terribly bugged by this, but it was hard when I was ready for bed and no one else was, and when I wanted snuggle with my husband I couldn't, and basically Scott and I got no privacy, and out of everyone we were the most recently wed. Scott kept telling me that next time we take a trip we were owed a room, and I'm going to push for that if we go next time. I'm glad that Scott was there, he helped me to understand his family better, but I just felt that often my needs weren't met, which is why people get upset and have problems, which is why I'm venting about this now on my blog. I'm glad I know this because I could vent to Scott at night when we were finally alone, and he would make me feel better. I'm so glad I have him, he calms me down so much and I think he really understands me.
Well, I left early to come home, I know it sounds like I gave up right, but I didn't, for my Birthday my best friend bought me tickets to the Kelly Clarkson concert and that happend to fall during our trip. So I flew home 2 days before everyone else drove home. I spent 2 1/2 days with out Scott and nearly died! Well not really, but in the two years that I've known my husband this is the longest time that we have been apart. We have spent everyday together for the last two years, no lie. Of course we work together, so even if we weren't hanging out or dating, we saw each other at work. I had no idea what to do with myself with out Scott. Luckily Shae and Laura are seriously the two greatest friends ever and helped me during my trying time. Alright enough for now, I'm sure I have better things to do.... nah!!!
