Monday Dallin and Kaitlin were studying when Kaitlin's mom called her and told her that they had gotten tickets to go see American Idol! Kaitlin half kidding said, "You should fly me home so I can go with you!" Well, sure enough mom gave in and flew her home! They decided to let her take her truck up to school.... but, they didn't want her to drive up alone so they decided to fly Dallin home to help her drive back up! He was SO excited! Anyway, Kaitlin flew home on Wed and then on Thurs morning she called Ricky and Mike and told them that she had a friend that was bringing them a package from her but that they needed to go out and meet her but to stay on the phone coz she wanted to hear their reaction when they got the package ~ YEP, she was standing there when they came out... They were SO excited to see her, then she told them that that was only 1/2 of the surprise. She told them to get their board shorts and towels... they all headed towards the beach but on the way she pulled into the Long Beach Airport with the 2nd part of the surprise (Dallin) waiting for them! Again, they were SO excited!!! They were all hugging and yelling and stuff when up walked Aimee!!! It was so fun because NO ONE knew she was coming ~ Kaitlin got a surprise herself!!! Dallin had gotten a ride up to Salt Lake City on Thurs morning and he and Aimee were eating breakfast (she was to take him to the airport in a couple of hours) Aimee said, "I wanna go too!!!" About that time her brother happened to walk up and told her to go pack, he would pay for her to go!!!! So, Aimee was able to get her shift covered for work and packed! They got on line to book her flight but it was so soon she couldn't book it on line! They hurried to the airport and Andrew bought her ticket and she got on the flight with Dallin!!! I have to tell you that these 6 kids have been Besties (Yeah, the boys would prob die that I used that word, but it is soooooooooooo true!!!) since middle school!!! They have been a great group of kids and a great support to each other!!!
Anyway, that was our FUN FUN FUN surprise this weekend!!!
It was fun as they got to go with us to the temple... here are some fun pics...
This is the group after coming out.... GREAT group of kids!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this calling!!!

Kailin, thank you for ALL the pics... the only bummer is... you are not in them!!! :(
Ricky has him mission call, he is going to Tegucigalpa Honduras, he reports on May 26th. Mike has his call, he is going to Tampa Florida speaking Haitian Creole! Dallin is finishing up this semester at BYU then we will be finding out where he will be serving!!! I am so proud of you boys, you are great young men!!!
After church getting ready to head back up to BYU... Dallin and Kaitlin are at BYU, Aimee is at LDS Business College, Ricky, Mike and Farryn are home working earning money for the mission!
As they were hugging, I reminded Kaitlin and Aimee that this would be the last time they could hug Mike for 2 years... and when they see him again they MIGHT be married and pregnant! HAHA.... yes, there were tears shed... As Dallin said... this is the last time we will ALL be together for 2+ years... and you know as well as I do... things change... and yes, the girls MIGHT be married!!! Best of luck to all of you, you will be so blessed for being the kids you are!
