May 2014

On May 9-10 KC finally got a night to ourselves to celebrate our 24th Anniversary. We went to dinner at Christopher's Steak House and then to Park City for the night.

Christopher's is so fancy and the food is delicious!

We stayed at the Park City Peaks Hotel.

This was our room 

with this beautiful bathtub! 

We went and took a stroll around Park City. And we had breakfast at Blue Iguana. We also went to see the 2002 Winter Olympics Museum and ended up our date at NPS :)

The next day was Mother's Day. Here's a good quote I found in the Ensign:

KC made us a yummy dessert of homemade ice cream with fresh fruit in a waffle cone.

Zildy, my mom, and me :) 

The 5 reason why I love being a mom: (C had strep and was really sick but I was happy she was there!)

CR has been a part of the Student Government at the school for two years and this was the final banquet. 

KC and Jhett ran their first marathon on May 17th! They were both awesome! How anyone can run for that long is something that I just can't comprehend??? But I admire all those that can do it!


For Memorial Day we went on the Heber Creeper for a Wild West train ride. The kids loved it! And we had been wanting to go for a long time so it was good. It's a one in every 10 years experience. Before going on the train ride we went to fix K's car cause it woudn't start. KC and CR changed the starter and it took a few hours, when they got done they realized that all it needed was some cleaning of cables or something like that. And the new starter was bad! So we went on the train ride and had to go back to change the starter again! Aghh!!! Oh well, the car worked in the end. KC and CR are AWESOME!

CJH Awards night. CR was recognized for his high GPA and got the award for NAL. He was the highest scoring player in the district!

S and the class of 2014 from DHS.

Creative gift from Aunt Zildy... the money kept coming and coming and coming!

April 2014

For Spring Break this year we decided to go south to Mesquite and hang out with counsins. We headed down on Sunday afternoon and came back on Wednesday.  We just hung out by the pool or in the hot tub since the pool wasn't so warm.

We went bowling.

We went to visit Tuachan.

We had fun in the sand dunes. Beautiful soft sand just no water :( In the heat of the summer this place wouldn't be as fun but we had beatiful weather in the 70's.

We even had David Hasselhoff take a picture with these girls.
It was a short but fun Spring Break!

K participated in Provo Fashion Week. She designed a few outfits. One of the models was our one and only C. K is an awesome designer! We look forward to more of her designs!

G loves Buster so much! Buster loves her too but has to put up with G smothering him all the time.

S ballet class did a small performance for parents at the studio. S is a beautiful dancer and I'm excited that she will continue dancing at the university level. This is a picture with Clytie and the company class.

Easter egg hunt at Smith's. We have a tradition of doing this one because since the kids were little it was great to go and get some candy inside. They pretty much just throw a bunch of candy on the floor. They also have some eggs with prizes in them. They can usually fill a basket full of candy in 2 minutes or less.

Afterwards we went to an actual Easter Egg Hunt outside. We talked CR into participating. Why not?

G Easter dress.

Our beautiful family and CR. What we would do without our boy?

Cute Zuri on a the turle. What would a post be without cute Zuri in it???

S was one of the Moonlight Dancers. We went and watched her for the 3rd time in her high school career. 
This is a picture of the senior's dance:

This is the only picture I have of the swing dance: 

The three April birthday kids.

And that's April in a nutshell!
