Jazz Game

On January 27th we made a quick trip down to Utah to go to a Jazz game. I had gotten the tickets for Sean as an anniversary present last month. We left Idaho at around 11:30 AM leaving June with my Mom. It just so happened that my brother Preston's 19th birthday was that day too so we took down his birthday cake and presents. He goes to BYU in Provo so it worked out really well. We got to Provo at 3:30 PM and could only stay and chat at Auntie Em's for a little bit because we were on a tight schedule. We did get to stop and see my cousin's new baby boy Quinn who is so tiny and sweet. Then we were on the road again headed back to Salt Lake. We met up with Brett and Margaret and went to dinner at Macaroni Grill before the game started at 7:00 PM. It was really good food and we all got stuffed. Our tickets were extremely high up, but that was OK. It was our first Jazz game ever!!! The game was intense and we had a blast. The Jazz played the Spurs and it came down to the last minute. With twenty seconds to go the Jazz were only down by a basket, but sadly they did end up losing in the end. We had a great time though, so the final score didn't matter. We talked with Brett and Margaret for awhile back at their apartment and then left for home at around 10:30 PM. I drove back to Idaho and the roads were a dream until Malad. Then the snow started and it was blowing outside. I couldn't see the lines on the road most of the time so I just took it slow. We did make it safely back home at around 2:00 AM.
And what did my little June bug do while we were away? Played with Grandma and Rose!!! Which is one of her most favorite things to do.

Cat trip to Big Springs

A couple weeks ago we got to go on a Cat trip to Big Springs in Island Park. Our friends the Carson's invited my family to go with them. They had won this trip at the Scout auction, and we were just happy they wanted us to go with them. The Cat could hold about 15 people in it. It was a bumpy ride, but fun. June liked to walk in between me and my mom while it was moving.

This is what the Cat looks like. We got a few funny looks from the snowmobilers passing by because you don't usual see one of these on the trails.

It was a cold day, but very pretty. At Big Springs we got to see the huge fish swimming right off the bridge, and we even brought bread to feed the ducks that were there.

He's a Socoiologist

This is a little late in coming, but I wanted to document Sean's graduation from BYU-Idaho. He graduated back on December 12, but what with the holidays and our baby news I neglected to post any pictures. I am so proud of him. He worked very hard to earn his degree, and I know it wasn't easy for him working full time, taking care of his family, and going to school.
There were 1,163 graduates that night - the most ever at a winter graduation. President Clark and Elder Uchtdorf gave wonderful remarks. Sean was only allotted 4 tickets so me, Kim and Julie (Sean's parents), and my Dad got to be there.

The diplomas (I mean diploma cases) were presented at a separate ceremony within the differing colleges. Sean got his degree in Sociology. Congratulations Sean, we love you!!!

And I just had to end with a picture of my girl. Without her my life would be so insanely boring. I was doing laundry and she jumped in the empty basket and called it her boat. I love her hair in this shot, this is what it looks like when I don't pin her down to do something with it.
