Utah trip

Us at Zion

Half of the grandkids and below is my beautiful new niece Brynn.

We just had a very fun week in Utah visiting friends and family. We spent 3 days with our good friends the Ellingons. They took us to Zion National Park which was so fun and beautiful. The kids had so much fun going on the hikes and seeing waterfalls. Then we headed to Springville and spent the rest of our trip with my brother Andy. He had a baby girl on leap day so we were there for her blessing. It was so nice to be able to spend some time with his family. My dad came up too so we had half of the grandkids there at once. Here are some pics from our trip.


A few weeks ago I took the kids to Disneyland with my dad, his wife, my sister, and all her kids. We had so much fun. Lexi went on every ride I went on including Space Mountain. Alli's favorite ride was the Matterhorn. She keeps asking me when we can go on it again. We spent one day at Disneyland and one day at California Adventure. There wasn't as much stuff for my kids to do at CA, but the electric parade made up for it. I think my sister and I were the most excited about that. We would get all excited and giddy if the princesses looked our way. My kids are terrified of people dressed as characters by the way. This was the only picture I could get of them with anyone.

Isaac loves me

He loves me so much that I finally got new appliances. Pay no attention to the white hood above the stove. We still have to replace that. I have been bugging him for years and he finally gave in. So far the fingerprints aren't bothering me, but we'll see how it goes. The only downside to these appliances is that Isaac and I did it all ourselves. We moved out the old and put in the new. I was fine until Isaac made me lift our old refrigerator. It was pretty heavy and I thought I broke my collar bone, but luckily I only got a cut.
