My Bike! And little Ali's engaged!

Ali looked out the window, and this is what she saw!
The little love birds
No, the basket was not included, but it comes in handy!  Even if it was made for a 5 year old...

On our way to Utah lake

Mom, this post is for you!  For my birthday this year, which isn't till June 22nd, all I have wanted is a bike.  So, my sweetheart mom let me pick out my present a little early so I could enjoy it for longer.  So I convinced my friends that they needed one too, and it has been so much fun!  By far the best birthday gift I could ask for!  Riding down the Provo trail has become our new favorite hobby!  And yes, we all 3 got matching yellow ones at Target (only 90 dollars so go get one!)  Mom keeps asking to see the beauty, so here it is!  And of course, I have to put up a few pictures of Ali's engagement.  I still cannot believe one of my best friends will soon be married!  

Spring is Here : )

Driving to a house out in Alpine to play volleyball, sit by the fire, and watch a movie on the projector with my roomies!

Yes, me Kristin and Garrett killed the other team.
Cute Shelby who is getting married Aug. 1st!

I cannot say enough how much I am loving Spring term up here!  The weather is absolutely perfect, everyone is more social, and school is much easier.  We go on lots of runs, bike rides, picnics, swims, and pretty much anything outside.  Sunday we had a fun little barbecue at a park down the street and had tons of fun eating and playing football.  Utah may struggle in the winter, but it is one of the most beautiful places this time of year!  So everyone, come visit me!  Trust me, its lots nicer that AZ right now!

Happy Mothers Day!

So I just wanted to give a little shout out to my mom today!  I'm sad I couldn't be there to celebrate!  But I have the best mom in the world!  I'm not kidding, I really do.  She does so much, and I know she's always there for me.  If I'm crying, she's the one I call.  If I'm extremely happy, she is the one who I call to tell everything.  If I need advice, she is always there.  My mom is always supporting me and trusting me in my decisions.  Not to mention, she keeps the cleanest house around and cooks better than anyone!  It has never been a question if my mom thought of our family as a priority.  I could go on and on, but I just want her to know how grateful I am for her, and how much I love her.  She has taught me everything I know, and I hope my kids will be able to feel the same way towards me as I feel towards her.  She is the greatest!  So thanks mom, love you!
