We took a little family vacation to Salt Lake in May. We all had a great time. We went to the farm at Thanksgiving Point, the aquariam in Sandy, and of course the Zoo. The girls loved the pony rides, swimming in the pool, and all the animals at the zoo. Touching the stingrays at the aquariam was super fun too!


In April, Nate and I got to go to Washington to visit Nate's brother and his family. Our nephew Jarren was baptized. It was a very quick trip (only a weekend), but we did get to see a few things while we were there. One of our favorite stops was the Columbia River Temple. It was beautiful! We weren't able to attend a session there beacause we stopped on a Sunday.

In April Nate and I celebrated our 6th anniversary. We dropped the kids off at my sister's house, and got a night to ourselves. We went to dinner at P.F. Chang's and stayed in Salt Lake. The next day we went to the tulip festival at Thanksgiving Point and Nate took me shopping. It was a great weekend! It has been a fabulous 6 years!


In April Ashlee graduated from preshcool. She was so excited. It was fun to watch her grow and learn so much this year. She now can't wait for kindergarten! We are so proud of her!

I can't believe our little girl turned 5 last week!! She is getting so big I can hardly believe it! She had such a fun birthday. The weekend of her birthday all of my family came down to visit. They got to come see me dance in the ballet "Cindrella" and celebrate Ashlee's birthday. We went to Melissa and Kelly's condo in St. George. It was great. We were wishing for a little warmer weather, but we still had a blast.

Ashlee happens to share a birthday with her cousin Genavieve, they were able to celebrate together as well.

A few days later we had Ashlee's first real birthday party. She was so excited! We had the girls dress up like princesses and took them to Evan hair college here in Cedar. They were treated just like princesses! They got to get their nails and hair done. All the girls LOVED it! Then we came home and had rainbow cupcakes and ice cream, played twister, and opened presents. Each girl got to leave with a little treat bag and a sugar cookie wand. It was a great party!
