Alec's 4th grade Program was so fun! He did such a great job at being Jim Bridger! He sang lots of fun songs about the settling of Utah. His favorite song was called "Wheels" about the railroad and Promentory Point and cross continental Railroad meeting in Utah. I am so proud of him and love him alot!

Katie's Dance Recital was awesome! She was so beautiful and it was really fun to watch her on her 17th birthday doing what she loves best, dancing! She is such a beautiful dancer and can really get some air! I wanted to show how high she can get. The picture is a little blurry but you get the idea!
They did 4 dances. The first one, "Vogue" has taken 1st place at every competition that they entered. The second one, "White and Nerdy" is the one she is wearing her dad's old scout shirt and Alec's hat was a big hit! It is HILARIOUS! The 3rd one, "Hear Comes the Sun" was a beautiful lyrical. The last one was the final number that Katie's best friend and dance partner Camarie Madsen sang beautifully. This is Katie's 14th year at Showcase!
This month has been a great one! I have had the opportunity to go to 2 conferences where we finished up by doing a day of service. The top 2 pictures are of me at the VISTA conference for my project that I work on. We painted parking lot lines at the Community Center in Logan. The Last one is of me at the Lieutenant Governor's Conference for Volunteers in Utah. There were about 500 volunteers from the state that participated. We made packets for the soldiers that are deploying for the 2nd and 3rd times. We finished up by writing Thankyou letters to them. It was a great experience!
What a happy Mothers Day I had this year. My first grandchild was born the night before Mothers Day. Josh and his girlfriend Renata Mizuni had a beautiful baby boy. He was born on May 9th at 8:15 p.m.. He was 5 lbs. 12 oz. and 18 1/2 inches long. He has dark brown hair and beautiful blue eyes (just like his daddy)! He is such a sweet baby and we are so grateful that his mom has worked so hard to keep him growing. It has been a week and 4 days since he was born and he is already getting little chubby cheeks. His mom says that it's because he eats every hour and half to two hours. We are so proud of him and wanted to share him with you all!
