Happy Birthday to me!

I love to celebrate the birthdays of those I love and I also love to celebrate mine! I don’t focus so much on my age, but more on all of the amazing memories from the past year. Plus what girl doesn’t like to get spoiled once in a while?
The weekend before by birthday we had a family sushi date at RA. It was fabulous of course!
On my actual birthday Weston, London, and Greyson took me to lunch at Panera (Logan and Carson were in school.) Afterwards Weston took me shopping for a new purse! We also got some yummy gelato while we were there.
Later that night we enjoyed my birthday cake. A few friends dropped of cards, treats, and flowers also. I’ve got some great friends and family!
At the end of the week I had a girl’s night out with tons of ladies to celebrate my and another friend’s birthdays which are only a few days apart. We went to dinner at Pei Wei and later we saw “The Longest Ride.” Such a fun night out! This is a picture of my new purse…isn’t it cute??

SoCal Ragnar

At the beginning of April I had the opportunity to run in the SoCal Ragnar with some friends. This was my first Ragnar and I had a blast! Our team name was “Alice in Runderland” and I was the Cheshire Cat. I was so thankful for the opportunity! I even ran into an old friend of mine from Minnesota that I hadn’t seen for 10 years!

Happy Easter!


Some awesome ladies from my ward organized a super fun egg hunt at our local neighborhood park. The kids had a great time, even though Greyson’s face doesn’t show it!


Easter morning we did baskets and a quick egg hunt inside the house.


Later in the afternoon we dyed eggs.


Easter is one of my favorite holidays. I love spending time reflecting on Jesus Christ’s sacrifice for all of us. I also love that my older boys are at the age that they really understand what he did and how it affects each of us. Because He lives I can be with my family forever!

Easter Pageant

With Sandy and Larry in town for Easter weekend I thought it would be fun to take them to see the Easter Pageant at the Mesa Temple. We stopped at Costa Vida for dinner before (of course) and walked the gorgeous temple grounds to get some pictures. The production they put on is nothing short of amazing and it was the perfect way to start our Easter celebration!
