Easter 2013

We had a lovely Easter this year! We always do, so it was no surprise. :)
I started off the day by hearing all about the gifts in the kiddos baskets (which I already knew all about because I played the Easter bunny this year!). I forgot to take a picture of the baskets but they were very cute! Kian got some candy, Spider-Man beyblades, a plant kit, bubbles, a coloring book, cars cup, a hot wheels car, and a cute stuffed animal turtle. He was so excited! Ella got, a coloring book, candy, lip balm, bubbles, a Disney book, nail polish, a plant kit, a princess cup, and a stuffed animal dog. She love it! As for me, the Easter bunny (aka me) got me a book, an avengers cup, the Jane Eyre movie, candy, and some cute notepads. Never shopped for my own basket before, that was a first! Mom had a late night gig so it became my responsibility, and I think I did well! I also sang in church and got a lot of compliments and enjoyed doing it. We then headed to grandma's house and had a late lunch and hunted for eggs! I love my family! Happy Easter, everyone!

It's almost time!

It's almost time for me to head up to Rexburg! I am really excited to go back to college and start fresh. I'm really scared that I will be really home sick too though! I'm going to miss my family so much. I can't wait to be with Cami though too and to get back to learning!

Spontaneous Iowa Trip

My friend Abby texted me at 9 pm on Saturday night and asked me if I wanted to take a road trip to Iowa with her. She was going to meet her parents to watch her old college basketball team play in the NAIA championships. We left early Sunday morning and it took us 12 hours to get to Iowa. It was only supposed to take about 9 hours to get there, but there was some snow and when we got to Nebraska, they shut down I-80! So we had to take a different way through 30 and because of the blowing snow, it took us a while! When we finally got to Iowa we got all of our stuff into the hotel and chatted with some parents of the girl's on the team. They were all SO NICE. I had such a great time getting to know them. We stayed in a great hotel that was super cozy. I wanted to stay there for the whole week!

We watched the girls of the Davenport team practice and then play for a spot in the championships. It was really fun and they won! It was cool to see all the family and friends there get so excited.

When they played the next day in the championship game, they lost, unfortunately. But it was still a lot of fun! They had a great season!
After the game, Abby and I drove back to Denver through the night. It was so hard to stay awake, but I took a huge nap when I got home!

Yesterday I took the boys I nanny to the zoo. My Mom and sister came with us, which was really fun! We had a great time looking at all the animals and walking around together! We visited the new asian elephant area and it was so cool! We rode the train and the carousel and the boys loved both rides! Especially baby Ryan. It was so cute to sit on the carousel with him and watch his face. I love spending time with my Mom and sister, and I'm glad they got to come!
