What a nice surprise it was to have Bean call me and ask if she and the girls could come see me! We had a yummy lunch at Qdoba and Eire’ was in true form when she asked if she could have hot sauce in her soup. She is hilarious! She has hot sauce on just about everything… just like her mama! She also turned into a picture model! She even posed herself with the flower!

We met Marilyn about a month ago. The missionaries asked us if we would sit in on her lessons. Of course we said YES! Our first lesson with her we could tell she was special. She is a young mother who wants the best things for her family. She knew the Gospel would not only save her but her two little boys and her marriage too. Marilyn committed herself to change her lifestyle and set a baptism date. We continued attending the lessons with her and felt like we became quick friends. We were honored when she asked us to participate in her baptism and confirmation. It was a beautiful day. The room was packed with her friends and family who were all there to support her and her decision. Marilyn was already glowing and beaming with excitement for what was to come. She was ready for this day. She is a sweet sweet girl and we love getting to know her and her two cute little boys, Zane and Bryson.

There was just something about the day… all I wanted to do was go hiking. I convinced Spencer and Hunter to go with me for company and so they could get a workout too! It was a nice cool and breezy evening with an amazing sunset.
Awesome sunset! Nice pic Spencer!
And big shout out to Cristina and Nova on their
4 year anniversary! Love you guys!
On our way out of town we took a short walk up to Provo Canyon. It was so green and pretty. There were cool falls from the snow run-off.

We took a road trip up to Utah for the weekend to go to a couple weddings. Friday morning we went to the Bountiful Temple for Spencer’s cousin Becca’s wedding to her husband Jon. The sealer performed a beautiful ceremony and gave the couple a great start for their new life together. We walked around the grounds for a little bit with Tyler and Casey and enjoyed the sweet Spirit on the Temple grounds.
Then we headed down to the Draper Temple for our friends Steve and Jenna’s wedding. The Draper Temple is brand new and totally beautiful. It’s tucked back in the mountains and is the stone is a gorgeous grey color. It started to get cloudy as we pulled up. During the sealing we could hear the thunder and down pour of rain outside. It was a cool sound. The sealing was amazing and once again a fabulous reminder to us of the covenants we’ve made and how powerful and important temple marriages are.

Spencer and I got a call on Sunday to come in to meet with Bishop. We couldn’t for the life of us figure out what the meeting was for. We were only in Primary for 5 months and none of the kids were baptized yet… so they couldn’t be releasing us. Maybe they just needed help with something. We went in and they asked how our class was doing… they told us how well our class has been since we were called, but then they said, you’re doing such a great job now we need to move you. We were shocked! We will miss our sweet class. We have learned a lot about how to teach children, a lot about patience, and how to make church and bible stories fun. We had a great class and those kids will be amazing adults someday!
Spencer was called to be in the Young Men’s Presidency and I was called to be the ward activities leader! Fun!! Spencer gets to help out and help motivate the young men and I get to plan the events… sounds like the perfect callings for us. So stay tuned for posts from camping trips, high adventure activities and all the ward events we’ll be part of now!
Spencer and some of his work buddies took a half day off work to go bike riding in Prescott. Here are some of the pics Spencer took with the NEW camera! He was excited to be the first one to try it out!
... all six inches of it!
Both of our cameras decided to crap out on us so we were camera-less for a few months… pretty annoying because we missed out on some fun pics of our bike trip, Ariana’s kindergarten graduation and a fun weekend up in Williams with the family. But no more! Spencer had a list of specs he wanted and we found the perfect camera at Costco… who doesn’t love Costco?!
