The reason I was slacking on my motherly duties.....

I had to go with Kurt on a little work trip. 

I had to watch movies with these two cuties on our way to Alabama, Tennessee and Florida.

I had to enjoy this beautiful view of the ocean from our hotel room.

And I had to enjoy time on this beautiful beach with my sweetie. 

It was really rough but i survived. 

The whole story is that Kurt and Sean (a friend on his media team at Vivint) were asked by the Pedersens to go back to where Andie grew up and do some filming for their family history. Andie asked if I would like to come along. It was so nice of them to have me. We really did have a fun time. All of the Pedersen kids are so sweet and fun to be with. It was so interesting to see where Andie grew up and meet so many of her family members. 

And....I learned that I could get used to flying on a private plane.

Apparently the boys had a little too much fun at the skate park on Indy's birthday...
 This is Finn's hand. 

He hurt it by falling on a rail. 
And, yes, we are still out of town.
 Mike Young was kind enough to x-ray it for us tonight. 
Surgery is scheduled for next week. Spring break plans never work out as planned do they?? 

Orem vs. Maple Mountain W 1-0

Happy 16th Indy!

It's this boy's birthday today and I feel like a bad mom to not be there celebrating with him. He, of course, preyed on my guilt and persuaded me to let him miss school. 
16 is a big birthday so here are 16 things I love about this boy:

1. he's pretty handsome!
2. he's totally in to clothes and what he wears
3. he is much smarter than he thinks he is
4. he knows what he wants and will do anything to get it
5. he always smells nice
6. he loves little kids
7. he's really athletic
8. he's a nice person
9. he's got a major sweet tooth (just like his mom)
10. he handles his diabetes pretty well considering it's still a new thing to him
11. he's very creative
12. he has very neat handwriting
13. he's not afraid to be a trend-setter
14. he has lots of friends 
15. he shares a love of all things zombie with Kurt
16. he is an all-around good person

I love you bud!

Orem vs. Timpanogos W 3-1

Nice goal Finn!

I love their reactions to a goal!

I don't like to miss games but I had to miss this one to go to the temple with Montana (good reason I'd say!). 
Timpanogos is one of Orem's bigger rivals so it always feels nice to come away with a win.

Endowment Day

Montana received her endowment tonight at the Mt. Timpanogos Temple. It was a great night to be with family. I think I was almost as nervous tonight as I was the first time I went through for myself! I kept glancing over at her wondering the thoughts she was having, how much she might be freaking out and hoping she was doing okay. It was nice to have her roommates Haley and Lizzie there with us. June 5 is coming way too fast!

Orem vs. Timpview W 3-0

you can tell this sign is outdated.....APX????

I was sad that I wasn't able to be at this game. We had 2 other big things going on last night----a retirement gala for Shawn Brenchley and Taryn Young's wedding reception. It's always fun to play at Timpview under the lights.  The boys played well and came up with a win!

Orem vs. Provo W 6-3

Finn heading one in.

This game was a pretty exciting one----high scoring obviously. Finn had 2 goals and a third attempt. He really wanted that hat trick!
