Family Time

My sister Emily is getting married on April 1st so we've had some excellent family time. We had their rehearsal dinner at Biaggi's because of their gluten free menu for my two glutard sisters. Very nice! Wedding pics are next:)

Our family is bursting with fun because we have the little girls here for Emily's wedding. We had a sleepover with them and my dad always makes colored pancakes for them, so we had to keep the tradition alive. It was excellent.

Birthday Blowout!

Brandon's mom is turning 50, so to celebrate we went down to St. George and Mesquite. We stayed at their house down there that is right by Snow Canyon, so our first day there we took a fabulous bike ride up around Tuacahn and up the canyon. We had an excellent time getting out of the cold.

Finally Some Sunshine for my Poor Pasty White Skin:)

My sweet dad invited me to come on a work trip with him on a Mexican Riviera Cruise. Best dad ever! We had such a great time together and did a super fun zipline adventure across a jungle forest. Plus, I don't look slightly albino anymore, which is always a plus.

California Here They Come!

My parents were called to be mission presidents in the Fresno California mission! They are super excited and are busy bees trying to get ready to go. They leave June 22 and will be gone for 3 years, which seems rather long, but a good reason to visit California. When I found out, first I googled how far it is to San Francisco. My dad was born and raised there until he went to college, so it's a favorite of my family. about 3 hrs. Perfect! Then I googled the distance to Disneyland. 3.5 hrs. Excellent. So...pretty great:)
