Junior Prom!

Wow! I can not believe that Julia is off at her Junior Prom. She looked absolutely beautiful! Her date, Tyson Oswald, was very polite and nice. They both looked so cute! He asked her just this week so we were frantically trying to find a dress. Her friend Tiffany let her borrow the one she is wearing and I think she looked amazing!

"What flavor of ice cream are you?"

Last week I took all the children to Salt Lake City to watch the Joseph Smith, Prophet of the Restoration movie at Temple Square. We had all seen it before but I wanted the boys in primary to see it again as the theme this month is on Joseph Smith. We all really enjoyed it, even Jack sat still the entire movie. I think the gigantic screen helped!:) We then walked around Temple Square for a minute before heading back to Logan. It was very relaxing.

On the way home I told the children I would stop and get them some ice cream. I decided to take them to Farr in Ogden. It is the original Farr ice cream shop. Tristan picked a flavor called "Playdough". It was different shades of blue, pink, yellows, red, green, and orange. I felt like I could have jumped into the ice cream and been a child again. It was fun to see Tristan indulge in the fruity blend of flavors and colors. Julia then made the comment that if she could be an ice cream flavor she would be "playdough". Alexis, AJ, Austin, and Tristan then proceeded to tell everyone what flavor they would be. AJ would want to be "peppermint stick", Austin would want to be "chocolate marshmallow", and Alexis and Tristan both said they would want to be "playdough". It was a great day!

Cache Valley is so great in the spring...NOT! Last night as a family we went to the Sports Academy so the children could swim. As we were leaving it was snowing so hard. Picture this... Austin and Tristan in shorts, t-shirt and flip flops with wet hair, Alexis in shorts and a t-shirt, Julia with wet hair and AJ had on jeans and a t-shirt with wet hair. It was a blizzard. We could barely see the road and it was accumulating quickly. Well this morning we woke up to 6-8 inches of snow. Yes, spring is here! Only in Cache Valley. I always say that it does not get warm here until July. In the last 5 years of living in Logan it has snowed every June. Why am I living here again?! Did I mention it is the children's Spring Break?! Snow, snow go away!
