Welcome baby Sydney!!!!

My brother Tommy and his wife Jaime welcomed a beautiful baby girl into their family on Monday, May 5th. She is so precious! She is a tiny little thing and never makes a sound. She has such a sweet face doesn't she?

This is the closest Joseph is ever going to get to having the baby sister he always wanted. Sorry Joseph looks like it's gonna be all bro's for you! He was so excited to hold her.

The whole group. Bryce was so excited to see his new baby sister. Jaime has cute pics of that on her camera. Congrats Tommy and Jaime, she is sooooo cute!

Womens Conference

We had such an amazing time at Womens Conference last week. I always love to visit Utah, but I especially love it when I go for this conference! It was so spiritual and uplifting. It was a great opportunity to rejuvinate an put things into perspective. In a later post I want to share some of the things I learned at Conference, but because of time I'll just tell you a little about the trip and show a few pictures. I went with my mom, my sister and my 2 cousins Emily and Amber. We had such a fun time eating out, shopping, going to the movies, going to the Temple and of course attending Conference. Here are a few pictures from our trip.

First stop....Cafe Rio of course!!!!

Here we are at Conference standing in front of the Marriot Center. Aunt Lynda joined us for the last day! Left to right: Emily, Amber, Kim, Mom, Me, Aunt Lynda.

I met up with my friend of 18 years, Malinda (Bradford) Barnes on Friday and we attended some classes together, went to dinner at Rubt River (YUM!) and attended the Thurday night concert with Hillary Weeks, Kenneth Cope, Michael Mclean and many others. I'm so glad we have kept in touch all these years we always have so much fun together.

My mom and her sister Aunt Lynda. Aren't they beautiful!!

Speaking of is a picture of some of the flowers on Temple Square. It was absolutely gorgeous this time of year!

The Temple is always so beautiful! This was just before we left for the airport to come home. I had such a great time, but I was soooo excited to see my hubby and my kids!

Any Ideas???

OK so our oven has been broken for about 2 months now and I am desperate for some good dinner recipes that don't involve an oven! Crock pot and stove is about all I've got! I have made the same spaghetti, roast, chicken gravy, crock pot chicken and cheeseburgers for the last month and I'm really tired of it. If you have any ideas please let me know!!!

I thought this was pretty cute. This weekend we had to stop by my office for about an hour and Brigham decided to write me a story while he waited for me. He left it on my desk and I found it this morning when I went in to the office. He wrote it in exactly the same format as the stories that he has to read for kindergarten. Also I just like how he sounded out the words phonetically. For those of you who don't read kindergartner I have translated for you below the picture. Brigham Brigham found a ladybug

Camping Trip

Last month Summer and I took the boys camping for the weekend. We went up to Lake Kaweah by Visalia. We camped for 3 nights and took the boys up to see the Giant Sequoia trees. Here are some pictures from our trip.
