My cute daughter in law Annie will celebrate her birthday in April but we celebrated it with her this past Sunday at our family dinner because it seemed to be the only time we could get all our family together for it. We had a fun party. Annie, Andrew, and Warren.

We wish you the best in the coming year Annie. It should be a pretty eventful one for you!
We have been staying busy! We were so glad to have our dear friends the Muir's visit us from Texas while they were here on a ski trip. It was great to see them!
Alyse and her dad had a really fun Father-Daughter date last week with Kappa. The theme was western. They had a yummy dinner and played some fun relay races. What a cute couple they make! Time with Dad is always fun. Friday Annie got out of school a little early so we could head for St. George and be there in time for dinner. Once there we met up with my oldest daughters family and enjoyed dinner at Cracker Barrel. Below is Annie and Mr. M playing checkers. I'm not sure who won.
Dinner time fun! If you haven't tired their Chocolate Coca Cola Cake for desert we all recommend it.
The next morning bright and early Kim along with my daughter, her husband, and their oldest son headed off to the 10K race. The rest of us hurried along to see them come across the finish line. Joel was too fast for us though and we missed seeing him finish. Below are the spectators.
Here comes Kim!
Mr. M finished strong! I was so proud of him! I also thought it was so sweet how Mr. H ran in with all the family as they were finishing.
Here comes Jenn.
Joel and the kids at the finish line.
Our proud family.
That night dinner was Italian at the Olive Garden. Good food and good company.
Sunday after church we just had to take pictures in front of the beautiful temple there. Spring has come to St. George. The blossoms on the trees are in bloom, the tulips and daffodils are out. It was nice to enjoy some warmer temperatures for a few days.
An important event in Annie's life happened while in St. George. While Alyse and I were at the swimming pool with my oldest daughters family. Kim and Annie went looking for cars just for fun. But they found a deal to good to pass up so Annie is one happy girl to now have a car of her own. ( She did earn it) So we drove two cars home from St George in stead of one. Below is Annie with her new used car.
Last night for family night we celebrated Andrews Birthday which took place last week. I can not believe how fast the years go by so I thought I'd take a little walk down memory lane and share some fun photos of Andy growing up. He was the cutest, most full of energy little boy I have ever known!
Below is Andrew with his cute family celebrating his birthday last night.
Warren and Andy blow out the birthday candles.
All the family celebrating with him. It was a fun party!
Happy Birthday Andrew we wish you a wonderful year!
March came in like a lamb with temperature highs being 54 to 58 degrees all week. The Spring flowers are just starting to peek through the soil. So when I woke up this morning to this (the picture below) I was disappointed. What can I say, I'm ready for Spring!
Kim and Linda have been married since 1972. We have 5 children. Our 3 oldest are married and we have 8 cuter than cute grandchildren. We love spending time with our family. We love our kids, our in laws and our grandkids!
