I know you're all thinking "What the Heck? How can THEY afford that?" It's true we can't. But wouldn't that be nice? The house is BEAUTIFUL! My brother Chad has been working on it. Anything wood is his handywork. It was amazing! Maybe we can talk Donald Trump into buying it for us.

My first signs of Spring


Open windows


No tv. Just music played WAY too loud.


Poor little neglected tulips popping up.


Flip Flips laying around in every room of the house.

BYU vs. Utah

Greg and I went to the BYU basketball game against Utah last week and watched one of the best games I've been to in a while. Air Force a couple of years ago brings up good memories of the entire family being there when Redick was probably 4 or 5 months old and screaming whenever the crowd got loud. He screamed a lot that game.

(for the record, possibly the best dunk I've ever seen at a BYU game happened that game)

Anyway, the line to get seats for the students wrapped around the building. There were probably a good 5,000 people in line to get a seat. For students, it's GA, so first-come, first-served. Greg went down early Saturday morning and got a place in line. We actually got pretty good seats.

I tried to take a picture of the line. The picture doesn't do it justice:



Here's the commotion before the game (a Utah fan getting kicked out of the BYU student section):



The first half was really boring and BYU was down by 2 at halftime. It really got exciting and loud about 4 minutes after the half when Jackson Emery hit a 3 to put BYU up by 2 (or 1, I can't remember). Then Lee Cummard stuffed 7'2" Neville and the place was rocking. I have never heard it so loud in my life. It was a fun game.

While I'm dressing...


My beloved baby (aka my terrible toddler) decided to make himself a yummy lunch while I was getting ready today. I was in the bathroom wondering why I could smell allspice. Now I know. What a squirt!



He emptied 4 bottles! Is he just destructive or do I have a budding chef?
