Well, I am taking a moment to share with you my most rescent accomplishment...I graduated Utah Valley University on Friday with a degree in Behavioral Science with an emphasis in Psychology! WooHoo!!! My mom sent out commencement announcements to our family which I would have posted, but forgot to bring it to work with me today so you just get boring text instead. Anyway, thats my big news for the week - I am so excited! Casey graduates next spring but he took the first summer semester off and we are going on a few excursions while it is still just the two of us. It should be fun!

The Melting Pot

My dad is visiting from Afghanistan and goes back tommorow. It has been so nice to spend some time with him. Last night Dad, my brother Sterling and I went to the Melting Pot for dinner and we were all in absolute HEAVEN, the food was divine! We had an appetizer with cheese fondue, then a yummy salad, then some meet and seafood and then my favorite part --- the chocolate fondue...yum, yum, yum! we had marshmellows, bananas, strawberries, cheesecake and more - it was soooooo good. Thanks dad for the fun and yummy night out!

I figured since it has been a week since Easter that I should put sme pictures up...so here are a few.... We had a good Easter weekend. Saturday morning we went over to my mother in laws home and ate lunch and then had an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids. She does this every year and all her grandkids just love it. In some of the hidden eggs there is "Bunny Money" they you can go buy stuff at her store with after the hunt - they love it!
Casey is a little old to participate in this eventful activity, So Sunday morning I made him breakfast and put this LITTLE Easter basket at his spot with some of his favorite things.

My mom and Alyssa were able to come this year too!
Pam and Kendall (my other mom and dad)
