FuN wEeKeNd!

My cute daughters in law called last week and said that the boys are going to be working in Yuma for the weekend and was wondering if I was busy or if it would be okay for them to come a couple of days early and play... (Yuma is only about 3 hours away) HECK, are you kidding me??? IF my daughters in law are coming to town I would drop everything anyway, busy...??? NOT me! COME ON DOWN!!! It was so fun to see them! They are just darling! I get to play mom to GIRLS!!! FUN!!! They got here Friday afternoon and we had a great time. I think the thing that we enjoyed the most was going to get froyo (frozen yogurt) every day! Well, every day except Sunday of course. There is a new place here in town that has 14 different flavors of frozen yogurt and tons of toppings to choose from including lots of yummy fresh fruits and then cookies, candies, and cereals, etc. You build your own and weigh it to pay! It is delicious!!!!

On Saturday Brad and I had a sealing to go to.
The kids did a little photo shoot outside the temple while waiting for us... Peace and Love! Chad looks like he is the same heigth as Diana. WAIT. Let's measure them... NOPE. Not quite.
After the sealing we went to lunch and then had a little scare!
Sunday Dallin graduated from Seminary! I had to speak... Dallin was 1 of only 2 Seniors that had perfect attendance for ALL 4 years! They were given a gift certificate so that they could buy new leather bound scriptures! CONGRATULATIONS Dallin and Aimee! Br. Kerr was the kids teacher this year... he was awesome, THANK YOU BR. KERR!!!
Monday the girls went shopping and the boys played golf! THEN, we had carne asada for dinner! YUMMY! I failed to mention that Brittany and Chad made us some deLicious banana bread!
And, of course with 5 boys at home there HAS to be a LITTLE rough housing... It was WONDERFUL having ALL the kids home, even if it was only for a couple of short days! I love my family!!!

Okeedokee, Alanna is here... we are going out for a little froyo, did I mention... I think I am addicted!

How fun! I love all the pics. We were just in UT and went to one of those yogurt places. We loved it and will now have to go there everytime we visit. And even though it wasn't on my diet, I just got a tiny bit of frozen yogurt (cake batter flavor - yum!) and then loaded my cup with fruit. It still was a treat without all the calories and sugar.

What a beautiful stage of life to have your children married and be building the bonds with your new children. Thanks for sharing the sweetness of it all and giving those of us who are over our heads in teens a glimpse of the brightness of our future!
Love reading about your life and your family! Really.

oh, and I love that your stake recognizes attendance. Ours will not, b/c they say they do not want kids who should stay home pushing it too much and coming.
I give out attendance awards in my class, but that is all.

Fun that you can drop whatever you're doing to play with the girls.
