Spring Break

St. George was great this last week. We were able to get away for Braydon's birthday and spring break. We had a great time going rock hunting by the power plant and at Crystal mountain. We also went to Mountain Meadow Massacre, and to the Jacob Hamlin home. We drove through Snow Canyon and went hiking. The kids went frog hunting with my sister and brother in law. We also went to Johnson's farm and saw the dinosaur tracks. It was a busy and lazy couple of days with playing card and having fun thrown in. Now for the many many pictures.

Crystal Mountain. You can't tell but when we pulled up the whole mountain glittered like broken glass was every where.

My Sister

Today is Courtney's birthday! When I was little I hated this day, mostly because my birthday is just 4 days later. I was a brat and so mean to her. Well now that has all changed (Good thing I am a little old).

Courtney is one of my best friends! We have been partners in crime for as long as I can remember. She has been the best little sister anyone could ever want. When we get together we can be crazy!

Some of my favorite memories are:
The week before I was married we made the best cooking video EVER!
Laying in the back of the boat and just talking and making up constellations!!
Godfathers Pizza!
Gas Stations!
Playing Church!

I love you Court! Thanks for being the best! I don't know what I would do without you!


Grand Concert PGJH 2011

Holy Cow!! The grand concert was amazing! I absolutely loved the final song! The Choir, Orchestra, and of course Band all preformed "When you believe" from the Prince of Egypt. I had cold chills, it was so touching and amazing!

I am so proud of Sidney she worked so hard to get all the pieces down. She played in the jazz band, the symphonic band and also the big group. Why to go Sid!! You did awesome!

One Good Sandwich

When Sidney was a baby we would go to this cute little sandwich shop that was just a little hole in the wall. One of the best things they had was a vegetarian sandwich. Well the shop has long ago closed but we still make those sandwiches on our own. This weekend Eric and I took the sandwich to the extreme. It really isn't a vegetarian sandwich here because we toasted cheese and a thin layer of turkey onto the sandwich then we put all the veggies. Yummy!!!
