Family Night at the Temple and Family History Center

Our family night was planned so we could go to Deseret bookstore and get Ryan scriptures and go to the temple.  It was such a nice night.  We loved looking around the store and putting things on our wish list.  Evelyn put everything on her wishlist, haha.  Then we enjoyed walking around the temple grounds.

We decided to go to the Family History center because we'd never been.  It was such a delight.  There were some fun displays that showed where our ancestors are from.  

The kids got to go on a treasure hunt.

This was a cute little display where you could take a family picture.  I just didn't want to do it tonight with the nose splint so next time we'll get all of us in the pic.  

There were so many fun things to do.

The kids loved it so much and are already asking when we can go back.

A Beautiful Day!

This is one of our crazy cats.

It was such a beautiful day so Naomi and I took Ev and Jarom on a little walk.  I'm not a home body so it's been weird being cooped up for most of the week.  I love being outside.

Issaquah Fish Hatchery

After enjoying conference, we wanted to get outside and enjoy the great weather.  We went to the Issaquah Fish Hatchery.

Conference Weekend

I love conference weekend!  It's an amazing time to learn and get insight.  

So these are not our memories but we just thought it was so cool that some of the young men got to go to conference in Salt Lake City.  Plus these are the young men Tony has in scouts.  He would have gone too but he was busy taking care of me. ; )

A mission friend posted this recipe from the mission and I need to remember it and make it our conference breakfast tradition.

Walk-a-Thon 2017

I missed the walk-a-thon this year but Shannon took some pictures. :)

Look at these cute kids.

They were so excited to run!

My Nose Job!

Have you ever heard of celebrities being mocked for saying they didn't have a "nose job" they just had a deviated septum repaired?  Well, I really did have a septoplasty, not a rhinoplasty.  I have always had a problem breathing through my nose and I decided to do something about it finally.  So, my first surgery ever.  Recovery is going well.  Sometimes I feel cranky because it isn't fun being limited, but I know that I chose this and I'm lucky it's not a lot worse.  I can relate to how Tony felt just a teeny tiny bit after his facial reconstruction.  And I do mean, teeny tiny bit.  It's not fun having your face hurt, but his hurt in all kinds of ways.  So here is the before.  Scroll down for the afters.

Shell shocked the first night.

Just being goofy the day after.

Tony was home with me and has taken good care of me.  He even set his alarm to give me my pain meds every 4 hours at night the first night to stay ahead of the pain.  This is a cute pic of him playing with Evelyn.

You gotta document the wonky nose, the nasty hair and the silly daughter.  

We are currently on day 3 of recovery.  I get my splint off in 4 1/2 days.  We have great friends who have helped give the kids rides, bring meals, do play dates with the kids, etc.  We feel really blessed.
