I love my dad because he is a great cook and I love his bean burritos. I love my dad because he likes to stay up late with his kids and watch movies. I love my dad because he likes to play sports with his kids. I love my dad because he can sing really well. I love my dad because I got great hair from him. I love my dad because he is an honorable priesthood holder. I love my dad because he cares so much for me and my siblings. I love my dad because he loves my mom.

My New Niece!

In the early morning of Thursday June 7th my sister Lindsay had her second daughter Brooklyn. Since I live in town I was invited to come to the festivities. Some think it is weird that I would want to see someone give birth but ever since I worked in the Labor and Delivery unit in Provo I have wanted to be a nurse. I am fascinated by how the whole process works. Anyway all went well and she delivered a beautiful baby girl. I am excited that there is a newborn baby for me to hold who lives close by. Then I can brainwash her that I am the favorite aunt. Madison is also beginning to love me more and more which is saying a lot. I love Madison and Brooklyn tons and glad they are nearby. Thanks to Lindsay and Colton for great kids!!! I love you guys too!

Below are pictures of Lindsay and Colton in excruciating labor pains, the final result Brooklyn, etc.

Wicked, The California Edition

This past weekend my mom and I went to see "Wicked" with the Brinks 3 in California. Erin had invited us a few months ago to come and go with her family because they had extra tickets. Of course we decided to go because we are always up for a trip away and to see "Wicked". For those who don't know my mom and I first saw the musical in 2004 on Broadway with the original cast. It was amazing! We also saw it in Denver and now California. The Pantages theatre was beautiful and it was a great show again!

We arrived Friday evening and went to Chili's with Matt and Erin. We then came home and watched a couple of Wonder Years episodes before we went to bed. Matt and Erin graciously gave us their bed and they attempted to sleep on an air mattress that quickly deflated and they ended up on the couch and the floor. Thanks again for the use of your bed Matt and Erin!!

Saturday was filled with a multitude of activities. Mom was anxious to hit the beach, Disneyland and Universal studios before the show but had to settle for other things. I convinced all parties to go to 24 hour fitness with me for the daily workout. Then we went home for some time at the pool with a lovely In and Out burger lunch. After this we cleaned up and went out for Pedicures and Manicures. Always a good time!!! Just a side note gas in Denver is the same price as gas in California. Crazy, huh? Well anyways, we went to BJ's for a lovely dinner before the show and then we were off. After the show we went to Cheesecake Factory to totally ruin our morning workout.

Sunday, we slept in and cleaned up and went to the airport. It was way fun to see Matt and Erin and happy to report they are doing very well. I am thankful for their hospitality!!

Ps: I ran the Bolder Boulder 10k on Memorial Day. It was the farthest I have ever run and did it in 1 hour 10 minutes. I don't think my time was that accurate though because I had to fight against walkers the whole way but it was a ton of fun. On a sad note though at mile 2 of the race an older gentleman was getting CPR and ended up dying. He was the first person to ever die at this race in 29 years. At least he went out making history I guess!
