Good Weekend

We had another exciting weekend. We drove up to SLC to go to Courtney who was my best friend in high schools wedding. They got married in the Salt Lake temple so Owen and I got up there early and walked around temple square. I am always shocked how beautiful the temple grounds are and I am always searching for just one weed---just one. Her reception was beautiful and we had a great time.

We then drove back Saturday evening to make it back for Mother's Day. It's always nice that we can spend holidays with both of our families since they are both in Orderville. I am so grateful for my mom and everything she is constantly doing for us. I am also so grateful for a wonderful mother-in-law. It is so great to have such great examples in my life.

We were also able to talk to both of our brothers who are on missions right now. It was nice to talk to them and to hear more about their lives. We love them and are so proud of them. I can't believe how fast their time is going. Nick has 5 months left and Jacob has 10 more months. Nick's release date is October 8th and our baby is due October 9th. So the countdown is on. I am hoping I win this race...

Last weekend we went up to Salt Lake to Cayson our nephews 1st birthday. It was a quick trip but as always nice to get away and spend time with family.

Birthday Boy!

Taking the new scooter for a drive.
This last weekend Owen had to work so I went down to a family reunion by Mesquite with my Mom and Tyler. We had a good time it was at Warm Springs so we got to be in nice weather and spend time in the pool and warm river. Some how I volunteered to be the President over the next reunion. I am still unsure why this all happened but it will be fun I guess.
Just got out of the river. And a very unattractive picture of me....just showing that my belly is getting fat and its freakin me out!
We have been so busy these last few weeks. We have been driving back and forth to Orderville a lot to get all the windows done at the resort by Memorial Day so I feel like we haven't had two seconds to relax. Hopefully things will start to slow down for us but I think that it is just the beginning of a very busy but fun summer. But I welcome the busy summer....its the best time of year!
