a little trip to delta....

My dad, Brooklin and I headed to Delta, UT yesterday to watch Kasey's playoff game... It was a long 2 1/2 hour drive with a whole lot of nothing to look at!!! Unfortunetly his team lost by 10 but they had plenty of chances to pull ahead. We were hoping they'd win since the State tourney is in St. George this year. I really enjoyed watching the few games I saw and watching Kasey coach. He's so good at it and he really gets into the games!!! I'll have to take my video camera next time....

go bears!


Wrestling has come to an end for Mason...
He has really enjoyed it and he has
improved from the first of the season!
He has been practicing 2-3 times a week
for the last few months.
It's been really fun watching him and
seeing him catch on to all the moves.
I'm still holding out for him to play
basketball but if he ends up wrestling -
I'll be there to cheer him on!!!
Great Job Mason!

this pic cracks me up!!!

good stance

happy {heart} day

Valentine's Day was pretty low key at our house...
The kiddos had pink, heart pancakes for breakfast
and got a little treat (lots of treats from gma)!
Nick was running to St. George so I told him he could
buy me lunch at Cafe Rio if I went up with him...
It was perfect!!!!
For dinner Brooklin and I made pizza's,
one with a heart and one with XO!
We also dipped strawberries which
were delicious!!! 

3 corners...

It's been such nice weather that we finally took advantage and went 4 wheeling with the Harris'. We headed out to 3 corners and it was the perfect day! We had a lot of fun and got dirty!

lunch with my fav boy

I had to run to Vegas today and ended up being there much longer than planned. I think the best part of the day was In and Out with Mason!!!

needed this coke today :)

Skipper of the School

Brooklin wanted to go to Salt Lake so badly but when she found out she made the finals to compete for the Skipper of the School she decided to stay home. I left Nick with strict instruction to take video and snap a few pics - he did a great job! And so did Brooklin... she's been practicing for a few weeks now and I'm so proud of her. She ended up taking 5th out of 35 1st graders and she jumped for 5-5 1/2 mins (not sure on the exact time). Brooklin was just happy she won a Powerade drink!!!!

such concentration

great job!!!

friends lunch

I was lucky enough to meet up with
some of my long lost friends for
lunch on Saturday too!
We met at Iggy's and had a great lunch
full of laughs and plenty of talk!!!
Thanks for the good times
Magaan and Amber!

funeral weekend/basketball/sister fun

Mason and I headed north with my parents for Uncle Don's funeral. It was such a nice service and a great tribute to him. He was such a happy guy and whenever I'd see him he'd insist on a hug and kiss and usually say, "How ya doin' hun or sweetheart?" He will be missed greatly.
It was also nice to see all of our extended family. Unfortunely for us the only time we usually see everyone is at a funeral since we're unable to make it up for all the other family functions. I enjoyed visiting with all my 2nd cousins (we seriously need to plan a trip)!!!!

so awesome to have the fire fighters there!

After the funeral, we headed back to Grandma Winters for some lunch and some down time. We were going to head to Morgan to watch Kasey coach his team!!!! Well they played a great 1st qtr and tried to fight back but they came up short.... It was still fun to see Kasey in his element - he can't sit still and is always pacing.
After the game was over my parents and Mason headed to Tremonton to play for the rest of the weekend and see their new house. I opted to stay in Salt Lake with Kirstin and have some sister time!!! We didn't do much but I did get a new SMART phone and we walked around at the Gateway and saw a movie.. Thanks for the fun weekend Kirst - love ya :)

look at those sweet brown eyes

silly addi bug

what a cute cheerleader!

Balloon Lighting

I'm so behind!!!
Anyhow, we went and checked out
the hot air balloon lighting from
Falcon Ridge Hotel.
It was the perfect view and the kids
thought it was pretty cool!
Too bad it wasn't a better weekend for the balloons,
it was really windy!
