Its time again for the annual Womens Conference trip. This year we decided to skip on the pre conference shopping and instead we went to the DI to pick out silly clothes to wear to dinner. We drew names and set off looking for the most embarrasing shirts ever. It was pretty fun and less stressful than shopping. After we got the clothes we went to the parking lot to reveal our wonderful choices. That was hilarious!!! The pictures will tell all. Soon after, we set off to Olive Garden. We got some crazy looks. Yet again it was super fun. We got to the hotel in Provo around elevin o'clock at night and then we started masages. Yes we have to get up early and sit in classes all day the next day and we decide to start masages at elevin. It was great but I had a very hard time staying awake in class. Sarah, Laura and I were training for the ogden half marathon at this time so we had to wake up at six thirty to run. I loved running with someone for once, I always run alone when I am at home. When we got back we got ready for the day and went to the opening session. I learn so much and love the spirit at Womens Conference, it is like nothing else in the world. I have to say that my favorite part is always the concert at the end of day one. This year was especially great, Hilary Weeks was the host (she is hilarious and my favorite singer ever), The fab five came (cloggers from America's got talent), and I cried at least once from the amazing spirit I felt. Music seems to bring that out in me easily. We went back to the hotel and did more masages, super great after a day of walking. The next day of classes was just as good as the first. I was in the same position though, I could not stay awake! Women's Conference always goes by way too fast and soon it was over. We went to aunt Shar's to buy some cute decorations that she makes, then we went to dinner. It was another late night but it was great to be back with my family so I could apply the things I learned at Conference. Thanks Laura for a wonderful time!!

Tom decided to take the kids to the fish farm for family night a little while ago. It was super fun! I have not been there since like second grade. Alyssa has always wanted to go fishing with daddy and catch a fish by herself so this was like a dream come true for her. It is hilarious to see all the fish squiggle around when you throw the food in the water. Alyssa was fearless too. She caught her first fish and just grabbed it without hesitation. Cody just sat in his stroller but he is happy just being outside so he had fun. I loved just watching my family, it is so fun to see my kids with Tom. I love my cute little family.

My sister Cortney had little baby Reegan on March 23rd 2010. We were not able to go see her because both of my kids were pretty sick so we had to wait. A few weeks later we were headed to the Planetarium in Salt Lake City and I decided we should stop in to see my new niece. She is adorable! Great job Cort! The Planetarium was fun as well. We rode the front runner to Salt Lake and I had never been on it before, it was pretty fun with my kids. Alyssa and Cody were so excited the whole ride there. Once we got there it was sort of a mad house because it was a Friday and apparently that is the day everyone decided to go to the Planetarium. It was pretty cool to see all of the displays. It was extra fun because Tom actually got to go somewhere with us! He is always working when we get to go fun places, it makes us sad. He is so cute with the kids and they love to have daddy around. After the Planetarium we decided to take the kids to see the temple. They loved to touch the door and take pictures by the fountain, its fun to see how much kids love the temple even though they don't quite understand what it is or why we have it. That to me just shows the truth of it all, if your kids can feel the importance without complete knowledge about it. When we got done there it was time to go home. All the kids and Grandma Mac fell asleep on the front runner. Alyssa actually laid her head on the man sitting across from me for a minute, I was a little embarrassed but it was cute. All in all it was a great day!

Such a beautiful baby girl!!
