home. sweet. home.

Warm. Green Grass. Love. May.

Isn't May wonderful?! It's the smell of fresh air through open windows, it's the birth month of my first two children, it has Mother's day and our anniversary. But I'd say mostly why I love it so's a farewell to winter and a welcome to those sunny, warm days! I have waited and waited for this month to come. This year feels like it's been slow coming, but it's just as wonderful as I remembered it would be. We had a great time in St. George/SLC. Shout out to Kari - we're coming to see you in 5 weeks, promise! We took the red eye Monday night and got into Las Vegas on a flight usually carrying 157 passengers, but including us only had 35. Felt like we had the whole plane to ourselves! We slept the whole way and before we knew it we were there. We stayed at a house a few doors down from my parents, it was really nice and although I love staying with my family, it was great to have our own space. We went to Salt Lake later in the week. Taylor had her photo shoot with Haylee. We met her downtown and then drove out to Antelope Island. We had her take our family picture and met her later in the day in Lehi (pictures to come...). Bryan and I met up with my super cool BFF from high school, April and her hubby Noah. Ate Thai food and had this great new froyo at Red Mango. We ran home and spent one more full 24 hours in St. G with a jam packed day fitting every last thing that we could. We swam, Bryan golfed, we played ultimate frisbee, went ice blocking, ate at the brand spankin' new In-n-Out Burger and visited with Bryan's younger brother Grant and his wife Heather. Whew!! We caught the red eye back and now...

I am so jealous that you were in SLC and St. George. I love those places! It sounds like you got a lot in and had a great time. How did your race go??
