April Activities

The Saturday before EASTER we had a family egg hunt and lunch at my parents home. All my brothers and their families were there except for Terrol & his family who live in Las Vegas. We had a fun time being together! The nieces and nephews enjoy being together and LOVED hunting for their eggs around the house. And of course everyone loved getting to hold Baby Laryssa and Baby Jaxon.

On Easter Sunday, Lindsay, Zach, Laryssa, and Scott's mom and dad came over for a ham and potatoes dinner. This is the fiist year since Scott and I have been married, that I fixed an Easter dinner for the family. We have always gone to Scott parents on Easter Sunday, but Scott's mom had hurt her back and was unable to cook for the whole famiily. So we invited them over to join us. It was so much fun!

YSA at Classic Fun Center

Another fun filled activity with our YSA group. This time we went roller blading/rollerskating or skooter riding at Classic Fun Center. Some of these YSA's are pretty good on blades, as for me, I still wobble on roller skates. LOL!! But, it's fun to hang out with these YSA's and get to know them and be young with them! :)

Dinner at LaCaille Restaurant

(anyone know the movie these "famous" front doors were in?)
It's so nice having a connection to have the opportunity to go to an amazing restaurant for an amazing price! With Lindsay teaching FACS (Family and Consumer Science) or for those of you who are my age....Home Economics; we were able to go with her Foods class to the LaCaille Restaurant. The school district and the LaCaille arrange for the youth to come to the restaurant (on their own dime) and learn etiquette. People from the LaCaille actually go to the school and teach the youth about etiquette in a fine restaurant prior to them going to the dinner. We ate Escargots Bourguignons, Sorbet, Hearts of Romaine with Roquefort Vinaigrette salad, chicken or salmon, then had a wonderful dessert called Banana Foster, it is a French vanilla ice cream flambéd with banana and Bacardi Silver Rum sauce.

The movie was "Dumb and Dumber"

Catching Up!!

WHAT A HIGHLIGHT FOR ME! Yesterday a group of us met up for breakfast at Golden Corral. This group was Young Women that I had a few years ago when I was the YW President. We all found each other thru blogging or facebook.
It was such an amazing morning for me to see how much these young women have grown. I just sat and listened to them each talk about their husbands, their jobs, their babies, their schooling!
Each of them have grown so much and are such amazing ladies! I am so thankful to know each of them and to have been able to be a part of their lives.
It brought back so many good memories of weekly activities, camps, spiritual firesides, the list goes on and on!

We are hoping to make this a monthly gathering with everyone and hope that our group expands! Thanks ladies for all the wonderful memories. I love you all!!! HUGSS!!!
