St. George

Really, why do we go to St.George?  It is all about the swimming.  The pool, the pool, the pool.  The only real reason we go to St. George.  Thank goodness the weather was warm enough to swim and the kids had a blast.  I sat in the sun since--the water wasn't quite warm enough for me, and I am in no shape for swimming right now.  Caeden had the best time, she jumped and swam and could have cared less if anyone was with her and her water muscles or not. It was a little scary to watch her confidence grow and grow as the weekend went on.  She loves the water.  I can't wait until summer when we can just fill up the backyard pool and be warm in the sunshine.  If the sun ever decides to come out and stay awhile. 

A quick stop at the St George temple usually rounds out our trip. It was a really quick trip this time as one of the baseball coaches called and his car had broken down on the side of the road on his way out of town.  We quickly loaded up the kids and headed out to see if we could help him and his family.  We ended up with all 11 of us riding to Cedar City together in our van.  We piled in and cozied up.  They had some family there that helped them get fixed up and on their way. 

Just a little stop in the sun

Mi Tio

Mi Tio Es El Mas Bakan


So, Allan was so excited to send Caeden this shirt for her second birthday.  Only we couldn't really translate it--Bakan, was an unknown Spanish word to even Grandma Carol who speaks fluent Spanish. We pretty much guessed that it meant that my Uncle is the coolest or best, or something to that affect.  When Allan emailed me that next week he said that is is more of a gangster/slang word that is used only Chile and it basically means my Uncle is a Bad-A.

So, in a tribute to our favorite Elder Allan Measom, the Bad-A, we wear this shirt!  Here are some pictures of him working hard in the mission field--Love you Uncle Alli.

White girls can JUMP!!

Split Jump Extraordinare  *February  2011*
So proud to post this picture of Courtlyne
This was a picture of her at her first level six meet.
She is growing into quite a fine gymnast, if I do say so myself!!
I love that she is at the gym most of the time that I am there and that she loves this sport.
I am amazed at her talent and drive to compete--I know I did not have that competitive spirit at her age.
