Here and There (April 2016)

Happy May everyone. I love the month of May because it always meant school was out and it was time for swimming, reading and playing in the sun. This year is a bit weird because Robert actually started school in May. Crazy, huh? Goodbye swimming for him.

April was a wonderful month because it was my birthday month. It also warmed up so we were able to do more things outside. The flowers were blooming and everyday we would check on our little flowers to see if they had bloomed yet.

And we had delicious food. I found this recipe for homemade green sauce. I usually buy the bottled stuff, but it has a bunch of things in it that I don’t want in my body like MSG and such. So I decided to make my own.

A Pink and Purple Baby Shower

A few weeks ago TeAnna and I threw our sister-in-law a baby shower. She has two boys and this baby is her first girl. This called for a very pink and a very purple baby shower. It is also completely okay in society to have more than one baby shower. I feel like celebrating a new life is one of the best celebrations.

In The Winter We Are Snowbirds

Mine and Roberts dream is to be snow birds at a young age. We will live someplace warm in the winter and in the summer we will live in Utah so we can still enjoy the beautiful mountains and hike and camp and play.

My grandma and grandpa are real snowbirds. They live in Yuma, Arizona from December to April. This year we went to visit them because hello, it was freezing here and it was 80 degrees there.

Spring Brings New Life

Our credit card company emailed us and said, We’ve noticed you travel a lot. Here’s how you can get more points.” Well that credit card email sums up our February and March to a T.

We went on our cruise at the beginning of February. You can read about our ports here and here. In the beginning of March we drove to Yuma, Arizona to hang out with my grandparents who are snowbirds. We stayed there a week. We got home and that weekend we went canyoneering in Moab. We got home on Saturday and on Monday we went to beaver to help Robert’s parents before they leave on their mission.

March is slightly a blur because of all of our “adventures”. Just kidding, I can’t call them adventures because we didn’t pan for any gold; I will call them trips.spring blossoms
