Memorial Day

Addi and Les woke up early this morning and went fishing up at Payson Lakes. Addi caught two that were large enough to keep with her Hannah Montana fishing pole. While they were gone Payton and I took a flower basket to Quinn's grave. After we all got home we went had a picnic at Cedar Hills Memorial Park in Highland and took the girls for a walk around the Timpanogas temple. There are these droopy trees in front of the temple that Les and I had our photo taken under on our wedding day. We have that photo 11x14 in a frame in our front room and Addi always says how much she likes the tree. We showed the tree to her and she and Payton hugged it. It was so cute. Afterwards we took them miniature golfing at Trafalga. Such a fun but busy day!

This week I went to a Supplier Training in Atlanta, GA. I went to the airport Tuesday morning and got back around 10pm on Wednesday. I am really lucky that Les takes care of the children so well while I am out. I was less stressed this time knowing he has done a great job in the past. When I got home Wednesday night the house was clean, the laundry was done and they had even planted a garden. The trip itself was a good break and a good meeting, but I am always glad to be back.

Zoo and Hailey

Since Les mowed lawns yesterday we had a Saturday together as a family. Something that is rare once it gets warm. We decided to take a trip to the Hogle Zoo and then went to meet Les' new cousin Hailey. It turned out to be a perfectly wonderful day. When we arrived at Diane's house Jaron was on his new Slip N Slide, so we let Addi play along. She rode home in a pair of Jaron's old clothes that no longer fit him. She thought it was funny to have boy underwear on and a dinosaur shirt, but once her clothes were dry she sure didn't want to change out of them back to hers.

Mother's Day

For Mother's Day Les and the kids bought me a really nice camera (Cannon Rebel), so I took it with me to Vegas and Addi's recital this last week since they let me have it early. I also took it to my mom's tonight to get some photos of all of the kids. I even snuck a photo of my dad reading to Payton. She was so excited to see "Papa" after he had been gone for a week and a half to Alaska. I don't think he was any less excited to see her.

Vegas and Addi's Dance Recital

We had a blast this week! It started out with a trip to Vegas from Tuesday to Thursday and then we came home just in time to get Addi all dolled up for her dance recital.
We went swimming, took a walk down the Vegas strip, visited the Seigfried and Roy animal habitat, and lots more. The girls spent the second night at Grandma Jan's house and had a ball while Les and I played a couple slot machines and enjoyed a date night at a magic show and dinner. They were even really good in the car.
Addi did such a great job at her dance recital and she was darling dancing away. Thanks to those that were able to come watch.
