Let me just start out by saying I LOVE MY IN-LAWS.
I could hang out with my brother-in-laws all day everyday and laugh the whole time.
And they open doors for me and call me "sis" and invite me everywhere all the time and I just love them to pieces.
I GOT SO LUCKY IN THE IN-LAW DEPARTMENT.
I know, I know. I've told you a thousand times.
But I'm going to keep telling you.
And also, my father-in-law is the ultimate best.
I feel better about my decisions and thoughts after I discuss them with him.
He literally is my second father.
And my mother-in-law is the prettiest.
And HI. I finally have a sister after 20 years of living. No explanation needed there of how much I love having a sister-in-law.
OK. I'm done ranting about how great my in-laws are.
Tonight Cole had school until late.
So I went to the Provo Beach Resort with my in-laws.
My aunt-and-uncle-and-cousins-in-laws(?) rented out the "flow-riding" section, and I've never laughed harder in my life.
Also, can I just tell you how much I love my aunt-in-law?
Ok. Seriously? Aunt-in-law? This is getting out of hand. WHAT DO I CALL PEOPLE?
Anyway. I have no idea where this is going.
Shoutout to Page for being the cutest!

It is a child's paradise. AKA Amanda's and Cole's paradise.
Cole FINALLY got done with school, and met us at the resort!
Mike McCoy (Cole's stepbrother/friend/policebuddy) gave us a giftcard to the PBR, (THANK YOU MIKEYMIKE), so we seriously spent $50.00 tonight solely on arcade games. I'm just a kid who married a kid, guys, and I just absolutely EAT IT UP.
Let me tell ya. If the game has to do with "luck," I suck at it. Always. I wasn't born with a lucky bone in my body, I'm sure of it. I mean, my mom cried when I was born because I had such a GIANT conehead. And she thought I was going to be ugly forever, because she had never had a baby before and didn't know that all newborns look like they just fell from the freaking planet Mars. Sooooo pretty much I've had terrible luck from the get-go.
K. What does that even mean, by-the-way? The GET-GO? I don't even know sometimes.
Ally and I got matching rings. :)
Anyway, I just can't believe how well I get along with my in-laws.
I just can't believe ANY of it sometimes.
A year ago I decided to change my life.
A year ago I decided to give my whole self to God; not just the parts that were easy for me to give to Him.
And ever since then, I feel like He has been "rewarding" me.
He gave me a bishop who knew EXACTLY how to heal my mind.
He gave a calling to my dad in the Single's Ward that would end up saving his daughter.
He gave me a husband who I am desperately in love with.
He gave me in-laws who I could be around all the time.
And he gave me the Provo Beach Resort. (Haha. I just love it OK? Just let it go.)
Sometimes I don't feel like I deserve any of it.
But I guess all I can do is continue living my life in a way that shows Him how truly GRATEFUL I am for all these undeserved blessings.
I will end with a Cole-Quote-Of-The-Night.
I started my diet today, and I have to drink 80 oz. of water a day, and I HATE peeing that much.
So I was complaining about it.
Me: "It was terrible, I had to pee like 99 times."
Cole: "I got 99 problems, and they all pisses."
