D+J wedding

Dustin and joy are finally married and we're so happy for them! Here are some pics that I got of the wedding, it was absolutely gorgeous and the couple looked so happy! (the pictures will be out of order since blogger on my phone jumbles them and I don't know how to reorganize them!)

We got tickets to go to the jazz game last night!! Woot woot! It was a sold out game so we were so lucky when randy called us to see if we wanted tickets.

I was even going to call into the radio station yesterday morning to try and win tickets but I forgot the number... Haha so thank you randy for hooking us up!

The game was so intense and close but we won and (I think) this now means we are in the playoffs?! I don't follow basketball well enough but I think that's what everyone has been saying :) I'm still learning.

Coolest part of the night: Tyler managed to snag a free ball!

I love my food network magazine subscription that the hubs got me. Especially when it gives me a nifty key with 50 different colors of frosting you can make with only the basic 4 color food coloring package.
I decided to make cupcakes just to try out the colors and I was so excited I tried 4 different colors!
Other things going on include:
Watching jake and Haley's cats
My cousin Dani's farewell, she is leaving on her mission to Taiwan and we will miss her!
Preparations for Dustin and joys wedding and then off to Cali!!

We had one of the best Easters this year. We started off our day at church with my momma, such wonderful talks were given. It was the perfect way to start Easter Sunday. I was reminded how grateful I am for the savior and for
His sacrifice that allows me to be with my family forever.

We then came home to a yummy breakfast and some fun game playing before we dashed off to Tyler's family picnic at the park.

The picnic was a blast! Such yummy food and tons of frisbee and football games. We were even lucky enough to have the Chrastil family stop by and hang out with us for a bit.

The big event at the park is the tossing of hard boiled eggs to the seagulls. Tyler's family does it every year, and though I still have my huge fear of birds, I managed to throw one egg very very far away from me to the birds:).

After many hours at the park and getting sunburned (it was such a beautiful day!) we headed home to have Tyler study some more for his series 65 test.

Well all that studying has paid off because... Dum da da dum!!!!! Tyler passed the test!!!!! I can not tell you how proud I am of him and i am so grateful that I'm married to such a hard working person.
I'm especially glad that he passed because now we don't have to go every night with him studying his hardest while I'm trying my best not to distract him :) Congrats baby!

Birthdays and Conference

This weekend was a special one, it being both Linda and Randy's birthdays! I got just a few pictures of Linda's party and her super cute garden cake that Amy got her. We are so grateful for Linda and Randy. They do so much for our family!
Sweet little Addyson playing with my phone :)
I also was able to plant this pride and joy here. I am so excited about it! This is my first pot of succulent plants and so I'm hoping that they will go well for me. The craziest thing about these plants is that I got them at Ikea! Who would have thought that Ikea has plants too, they just have everything!

Another thing that made the weekend special was it being General Conference weekend. Tyler and I are usually so busy on these weekends, but luckily for us we got to listen to most of the sessions. One of my favorite quotes from this conference was,

"Would you ask someone who is drowning, 'let me know how I can help you', or would you jump in there and save them?" (Elder Rasband)

Gosh was that a mind blower for me! I often find myself saying that exact thing to people, "Let me know if I can help you," and I need to stop doing that and just get in there and help! This is my new goal for now.
