The Hustle Monkeys...Yes that is our team name!


Top row: Joy(sometimes April), Me
Bottome row: April(sometimes Joy), Kelli, Angie, Amy
The reason for the sometimes is....I am a ditz and would call them the wrong name. :)

Last night was the final night of our volleyball league in Layton. We lost our second game in tournament play so it dropped us down into the loser bracket, which meant if we wanted to win the tournament we basically had to play all night long. We played 5 total matches. We started at 6:30 p.m. and finally finished at 11:00 p.m. with only a few minutes in between games. Can I just say my back, feet, legs....ok my whole body was hurting by the time we played our final game. We ended up playing the team that beat us in the beginning of the tournament (The Jazzettes) for the championship game. It was a good match but we ended up beating them in 3 games (best out of five games). Since they hadn't lost a game yet, we had to play them again right after that game. It is called the IF game. Instead of the best of 5 games it was the best of 3. So we had to come out playing. (Listen to me...it sounds like I am back in college again and the National Championship is on the line.) :) We were so tired!!! We had brought fruit with us to keep our energy up, but that wasn't quite doing it anymore. We ended up winning the first game and then losing the second. Third game......yes!!!! We won! We played 15 games winning 14. We got our very expensive t-shirts that we had worked our fannies off for and went directly to the bench and literally collapsed. (ok...maybe not all of us....but I did) We stayed there until they started turning off the lights and kicked us out the the gym. I came straight home and hobbled to my hot shower! I had a horrible night sleep because my feet and back were hurting and as of this minute....it is 11:30 a.m. I am still in my pajamas and I just want to go back to sleep. :) But....even though I feel this way... IT WAS A GREAT SEASON AND I HAD SO MUCH FUN! We have an awesome team and we had so much fun playing together. We are taking a season off and will be back in the fall! I will miss it and look forward to good times in August again! Go Hustle Monkeys!!!

Easter Morning




We had a wonderful Easter Sunday. The kids woke up to their Easter baskets. We don't do a whole lot, but they did get some candy with the movie Enchanted. I love this movie....so cute! I definitely recommend it for your family! We also had a easter egg hunt around the house. The kids really have a fun time with it. So what do you think of Cambrie's blue glasses? She is quite proud of them. She bought them with her own money when we went to Park City and she has had them on ever since.

The kids got out of their church clothes before I could get a cute picture of them all, but I did catch Kenna. Doesn't she look cute! I will get one next week of them all together and post it.




Grandma Linda gave the kids bubbles and Parker had a ball in the backyard.


Cael loved his fruit snacks!




Spring Break....!

Don't we love Spring Break!! After a quick trip to Park City with my Mom, Cambrie and Mykenna, we met up with Rob, Parker, and Cael at the bowling alley. My Mom was treating us to a game of bowling. My brother Ken and his friend Kevin came in for the weekend so they joined us a well as Kevin, Karee and Matt. It was so much fun! I actually ended up with the best score...ok...so I was on the same lane as the kids with the bumber rails, but I hardly ever used them...ok...so one of my strikes did bounce off the rail. Everyone had a great time! Thanks Mom!

Cael loved watching everyone bowl!
Pizza and pop with Uncle Ken.
Kenna and Parker were a lot of help with the balls.
Cael and Uncle Ken. Hope to see you again soon Uncle Ken!

Yummy Easter Cookies!!


While Cambrie and Parker were at school and while Cael was taking a nap, Mykenna and I decided to make some Easter sugar cookies. It was so much fun! Mykenna got completely covered in flour. Here she is rolling out the dough. I love how she tells me that she is going to cut out the cookies in 3 days and that her favorite cookie cutter is the temple. She had just been to her music class so that is why she is wearing her cute crown. Fun Times!!

Non-toxic?...I hope..


Mykenna was coloring with her markers today and Cael got a hold of one and bit the tip of it off. Good thing they are non-toxic. I hope...

Natural Blondes?


I can't believe I am posting this picture, but I guess the secret had to come out sometime....yes...I am not a natural blonde. I know, I know...you can't believe it, but yes it is true. My sister Karee stayed with us for few days and we decided to save some money and highlight each others hair. It was a good time!
