May Happenings

There have been a lot of great things happening for our family this month.  First Ethan GRADUATED from Law School!!!!  I am so proud of him for all his accomplishments and his dedication.  I've said this before but I really had no idea he would be so successful in law school.  That sounds mean but I really don't mean it that way.  His mom and I laugh about it because we both thought he would make it through and graduate but he definitely exceeded our expectations and truthfully I think he exceeded his own as well.  He received several awards at graduation including a dean's award, law clinic award, and of course an woody award for being in a bromance with some of his close friends!!  The second I heard the word bromance at the award ceremony I knew Ethan would be a part of it :)The picture below shows all the members of the bromance.   Trey and I are lucky to have him as a dad and husband.  The next exciting thing is that we moved to VEGAS!!!  Yay!  I can't express how happy I am to have so much family around not only for me but for Trey and my future kids.  I love that Trey is surrounded by cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents.  I was fortunate enough to grow up with a lot of family and I really had a great childhood because of that.  It's also nice to have baby sitters so Ethan and I can actually go out for the first time since before Trey was born.  I also love not missing out on weddings, babies, farewells, homecomings, blessings, barbeques, and all the other things that go on with my family.  I told Ethan I would be happy in Utah or Vegas but I just really wanted to be by one of our families and the job opportunity happened to be here.  We both feel blessed and thankful to have a job and be around family.  And last but definitely not least my sister found out she is having a BABY GIRL!!!!!  I'm so excited to have a second niece.  We've been doing a lot of shopping for this little miss already.  I can't wait to meet her in October.  In the meantime I'll be helping my sis work on the nursery.  To sum up...I LOVE this month!

Gateway Discovery

Ok so I'm way late posting about this but what's new.  Back in February Trey and I took a trip to Utah to visit my In-laws.  His Grandma Thomas can't go too long without seeing her only grandchild :)  While we were there we went on a play date with our good friends Crew and Ashley.  Ethan and Crew's dad Brad have been close friends for basically there whole lives so it was fun when we found out we were both having boys and they would only be 3 months apart.  Ashley knew some fun places to go in Utah and so she took us the Gateway Discovery Museum for kids.  It was a hit with the boys - so much to do and explore.  We loved it and can't wait to go again.
