The End of Year at DaVinci

Awards Assembly

The almost graduated seniors 

So we got the yearbooks in and no previewed them until the day before. Well there were some quotes in the book that were a little offensive so we had make some changes and cover them up. So we got our awesome team together, got to school early, had an assembly line and we got it done.  

Some of the staff ready for graduation. 

The salutatorian. He's been my budy for a few years. I'm going to miss him. 

Lining up for the graduation prosession. It's my job to read the graduate's names so I was at the front of the line. 

After graduation it's tradition to go to McCools with the staff to celebrate. 

Since various people are changing offices around. I traded my little desk with Simon's big desk. It helped me clean up and now I'm better organized and have more room.  

This is the end of my 3rd year a DaVinci. I really love the the school and the people I work with!
Congratualtions Class of 2015!

End of May

On Monday May 11, it was time to head home. We had to drive back to New York City to catch our flight and return our van but on our way we had one more stop. Yale University. It is such a beautiful and historic campus. We followed a tour for a little while but we didn't have time to finish the tour so we left.

The whole school was so Harry Potter Howarts looking!

We were a little stressed getting to the airport because there was a lot of traffic. We barely made it so that our luggage could still go on the flight with us. Phew! Another close one! We got home at about 11pm. The next day would be hard! Back to school and work after a nice long vacation!

On Monday May 18 we ran a 5K put on by the Davis School District. Sidney and I almost didn't run it because it looked like it was going to rain but we decided to do it anyways. Well at start of the race it was raining so hard! But we still did it and completed it in a good time! But afterwards we were freezing and so so so wet! But it felt good to complete it and challenging ourselves!

Jonas' birthday was May 2 but we didn't celebrate it until later in the month cause we were gone and then we saw each other in Boston. We love Jonas! This is the fancy chocolate turtle cake that I made.

At DaVinci every year the seniors pull a prank. It's tradition! This year they made the school look like Christmas! There was snow and Christmas decorations everywhere! Not too bad of a prank I'd say! Actually I thought this was a pretty good one. No damage done!

Kailee decided to go through the temple! We are so proud of her for making this choice. It is a bigger commitment but one that I believe she is ready for. It was a beautiful day for all of us!!!

This is the group that was there for this special day for Kailee. Minus my parents cause they had to hurry and leave before we got a picture.

Mother's Day 2015

I couldn't resist this cute picture of the three girls sleeping.

We went to church and then came home and had dinner made by the dads. 

Because we all have a hard time sitting still for very long... we decided to go somewhere but as usual it took us a few hours to decide where to go, we finally decided to go for a drive. We dropped Trevar off at the Boston airport on the way because that's all the time we had. This was the last time that we would see him for two years. We are so glad he came to spend this time with us. Good luck to Trevar in Brazil! 

After missing our exit and driving around for a while we drove to Winthrop and enjoyed the beautiful sceanery. 

Hanging out with the enders. Missing Julio :( 

Happy Mother's Day to the best mom in the world!!! She's always there for me and is the best example of a Christlike person. Thank you for being my mami! 

The annual picture with my kids. I woudn't be a mom without them! I love being a mother! Not always easy but I love my children no matter what!

And then the crazy pictures... 

This is a movie trailer that Carina made with the cousins at Winthrop:

Courtlex Wedding in Boston (May 8-9, 2015)

We got up the next morning and we had to get things ready for the wedding.

A trip to the grocery store: 

Sleeping arrangements for the kids: 

After the ceremony outside of the Boston Temple 

We were on a roll with the selfies. Why stop now? 

And there's the happy couple. Alex and Courtney. 

The new Boston Fajardo's. 

The handsome groom: 

After the temple they had a ring ceremony followed by dinner and dancing.

We were so happy to have Trevar come up and join us for the wedding. He has been at BYU for two semester but he was leaving on his mission soon so we got to hang out one last time. He is so fun to have around! 

 We stepped outside to get some family pictures. I thought they turned out well for being quick.

Oh boy... like father, like grandfather! 

What a beautiful day for these two. They are so cute together. Congratualtions Alex and Courtney!!!
