An Amazing Trip

We got back from one of the better weeks of my life a few weeks ago and I am just getting around to blogging about it - but sent the camera with all the photos of it with Trey to TAIWAN- a whole nother story...
Trey and I left the kids with my sister for a week and went on a cruise to MEXICO! It was the most freeing, relaxing, fun week I have. It was the first holiday we have had where I was not pregnant, recovering and without kids since before we had kids and it is one of those situations where you don't know how good you've got it till it's gone.
Don't get me wrong, I love my children - hopefully that is obvious from my blog, but as my sister who just had a baby just pointed out, having children is like learning how to be handicapped. learning how to do everything with just one hand, not being able to just jump out of the car and go into the store without a whole ordeal, basically being hindered in 90% of your activities in some way. It is also completely consuming - which takes away from some of the romance in marriage if you know what I mean! At the same time, after being away from it, and experiencing the joy of being around the most wonderful and adorable.
Unfortunately, for now the only photos I have are the ones of the day we got HOME and raced to my dear friend and MTC roommate's wedding in SanDiego. (Got there with 7 minutes to spare might I add!)

My Mission Sistas!

Proof that our photographer (and MY MAN!) was there with us - in fact he was the hit of the reception on that dance floor!

Here is a photo with the beautiful bride!
Adrienne looked amazing. So glad we could all be there! I love weddings

Blog-worthy Photos

she is so cute!

My BFF from since I was a baby Kel came to Utah! I love being around her!

I helped our babysitter with her biology project - Cake Marshmallow Fondant is useful in so many ways!

Our New Game

Trey and our soon-to-be brother in law, Christopher came up with this hilarious flying game.
I guess pictures say a thousand words...

I even tried it (:
Now, whenever friends come over, we set up the couches and start flying (:

USU's Brianna Harris Honored As WAC Women's Tennis Player Of The Week

March 2, 2011

LOGAN, Utah - Utah State junior Brianna Harris was honored by the Western Athletic Conference for her perfect, 5-0, week and was named the Verizon Women's Tennis Player of the Week award. The conference office selected the award and announced it on Tuesday.

Harris, a junior from Calgary, Canada (Bishop Carroll HS), went 5-0 in singles play during the week, helping Utah State to a 4-1 record in the process. Harris was able to start the week well as she defeated Eastern Washington's Rocio Norena, 6-0, 6-2. In the lone Utah State loss, at North Texas, 6-1, Harris managed the lone point for USU, as she defeated Carolina Barboza, 6-3, 0-6, 6-2. Harris wouldn't drop a set in her next three matches to close out the week by defeating Temple College's Valentina Kecman (6-0, 6-0), Seminole College's Ashley Coleman (6-0, 6-0), and Collin County Community College's Regan Perma (6-0, 6-0).

Harris is the second women's player from USU to capture the WAC honor, as senior Hailey Swenson was honored on Feb. 8 for her early season performance.

Harris and the Utah State women's tennis will not see the court again for over three weeks when the team travels to the West Coast for a two-match road trip. The Aggies will take on San Francisco on Thursday, March 24, followed with a bout against conference foe San Jose State on Friday, March 25.

I'm so proud of her!
