So many new things going on for our little family. We moved to Sandy, nice to have a house with too much space and an amazing view of the Salt Lake valley!

Athena just finished her Basketball season with Murray Varsity Basketball! She played so well- right up until she got got a concussion in the OREM game, and sat at the last 3 games! (next year #45!!) Ty also played Jr. Jazz this season- so fun to watch that age group play!! He surprised me!! He got game!! MAD D!! MAD!!

We just got back from a quick trip to Boise for Baby Theo's 1st Birthday!! he is soo stinkin CUTE!! I finally met Baby BRYSON!! omg!! you just want to pinch his fat face 24/7!! Miss my family SO much, makes me want to move back to be with them.....

As for me... just working- made the decision to stop procrastinating, and get back to school- I go back for REAL this Fall @ the U! It will be hectic- but worth it!! We are going to VEGAS next weekend for Ty's late Birthday- Planning our trip to Hawaii...lots on my to-do list! That is the short version of our life the last couple of months!

***Athena finished her first song, and has her video on youtube!!***
Check out her link, it is amazing.. made my cry! She is self taught, and bought that BLUE guitar with her own money a few years ago....and NOW.. wow! all I have to say.. very proud of her- words can not explain how blessed I am to have her in my life.

Ready to let go of things that have been holding me back-

Forgiveness and Love- the hardest lessons to learn.

~Silverstrand Vacation~

I had the best time ever in California with the kids. JD lives right on the beach, so it was awesome!
Coffee early in the morning, sitting on the beach watching the sunrise~ um....can't top that.
I missed the kids so BAD! We had the best time just hangin' out- They took me to all of the hot spots fun! Athena on the beach-cruiser and Ty riding' the John Deer tractor! Chillin on the BEACH!! I love the ocean~
Maybe we will move to Silverstrand.........?? ha ha
Really- it was great! trip to the airport down PCH in the Porche wasn't too bad either:)
