Five Years!

Mike and I celebrated five years of marriage last weekend. So much has changed in my life during that time! My parents came to stay with the kids. Mike and I went on a nearly 14 mile hike and then out to dinner, and then we stayed at a wonderful hotel here called Destinations Inn. If you are ever anywhere close, consider staying there. We stayed in the Rio De Janeiro room, and it was awesome! The kids went to the zoo with Grandma and Grandpa, so I don't have those pics. Then my parents spent the rest of the weekend with us, which was great. We walked around the temple, did yard work, tried to race monster trucks, and just had a good time relaxing. Thanks for coming, Mom and Dad! Here are a few pictures from our weekend.

Wii Love It!

This was fun! I just realized that Grandma is in most of these, so sorry Mom. But they sure are entertaining to watch.

Fun with Family

We took an overdue trip to see my family last weekend. It had been nearly six months since I'd seen my dad or my sister and her family, so it was great to visit. Dean even stopped by for the weekend. on Saturday, Rachel had a book signing for her new novel By Love or By Sea, so Dad, Dean, Mike, and I took her kids and mine swimming. We had a great time! Too many pictures to choose from, and my camera's not so great at taking pictures anyway, but here they all are anyway. After swimming, we stopped by some sort of kid safety fair the rec center was having, and we saw Spiderman. Carson was so excited to get his picture taken with him, though you can't really tell from this picture.
