Recent Events

It feels like Spencer and I have been really busy lately with school and errands and family festivities. Both Saturday and Sunday we ate two dinners at different peoples homes. Luckily we snuck in a visit to the gym Saturday morning. Saturday we went out to Spencer's cousins farm in Payson and had a huge Easter egg hunt. The odor of all the animals reminded me exactly of the Calgary Stampede petting zoo. The lawn was covered with tiny candy bars and (boiled) eggs. All the kids went for only the eggs and were really disappointed when they found out that there was no candy inside. They ended up smashing the eggs on the front porch. I'm sure their uncle is really pleased. After a late lunch with some cousins we stopped in Springville on our way back to Provo for a class BBQ that one of Spencers teachers put on. The food there was really good too. She had a pasta salad that I have been craving for a long time but have just been too lazy to make myself. Our Sunday sacrament meeting was filled with lots of musical numbers. One in particular was really funny. A mom of 3 got up to play the violin and after she was done her little 2 year old yelled "TAKE A BOW!" shaping her little hands into a trumpet like shape. Her grandpa quickly smothered her face but apparently not very well because she broke free and yelled it again "TAKE A BOW!" The mom just smiled and sat down. After church we went over to my cousin Emily (Salmon) & Mike Kinghorn's house where Aunt Lori, Spencer, Kathryn (and boys), Robert & Amber and little baby Pepper were. We had a big Easter dinner and visited for a long time until we headed off to yet ANOTHER dinner. At Spencers house his mom had just laid out the clues for the Easter egg hunt. We lined up on the stairs for a quick snapshot before running off in different directions in search of the Easter baskets. It was the only picture we took all weekend. We got lots of puzzles for Easter that I am really excited to start working on. As soon as we finish up some schoolwork I'm going to bust open the puzzles and get to work.
