This Whirlwind Called Life!

I have been neglectful of my blog of late as I tend to instagram the pic of the moment and don't have/take the time to download photos and post... however, I NEED to blog for my friends and family who don't use instagram as well as the missionaries in the family who I print my blog off for to keep them up to date with this whirlwind we call LIFE!

On March 22, John's mom Barbra Tebbs celebrated her 80th birthday!  She wanted a birthday lunch at Robintino's.  The cousins love getting together and are always laughing about something...

Grayson had a fun experience participating on the WXHS JV basketball team in a recent AAU tournament.  He was able to show the coach what he can do with a few 3-point shots and awesome ball-handling skills. 

 General Conference weekend... We LOVE the girls' shopping trip (with money envelopes from Papa!) while the men attend the Priesthood Session.  We meet up with everyone for dinner at Olive Garden.  Hailey had fun with her beautiful little cuz Capri :)

We were so lucky to attend the Sunday morning session of Conference and enjoy Music & the Spoken Word prior to the session.  We loved it!!

I was able to participate in a fun service activity for the sister missionaries in the SLC Mission at their transfer meeting.  The ladies who participated are all missionary moms so it pulled a little on our heartstrings as we made/packed/served lunches to these missionaries.

Enjoyed attending gorgeous Ashlyn's baptism (the oldest great grandchild of my parents).  Ashlyn is Capri's big sister and a great helper and example.

 The highlight of this recent whirlwind of activities was going to the temple with Hailey.  It was such a beautiful day--inside and out--and I felt so blessed to be there with her.  It's one of those places in life where you reach it and you revel in the moment, knowing your child is one step closer on the path of returning to their Heavenly Father.  3 down, 1 to go...
