Trevor's birthday (32nd if you are counting) was this past Sunday. It is kind of hard planning a big birthday - day when he had an Elders Quorum meeting, church, and home teaching...but the kids weren't letting him get away without a party (they were definitely looking forward to it all week! They didn't quite understand I don't do 'goodie bags' and 'party games' for a 32 year old...). We managed to squeeze in a BBQ and 2 of his favorite desserts: Angel Food Cake (with the works: strawberries, blueberries, whipped cream) and Banana Cream pie. We also hit the Indiana Jones movie the night before (a 'no kids date night'...much needed by me too!). Trevor always does such a great job with my birthdays, it is hard to compete, but I think he felt loved and not too worried about being another year older (and hopefully wiser!). His work commitments have been really challenging lately, but I really appreciate how he always manages to fit time in for the fam somehow. He knew his own birthday was a bigger deal for the kids than for him, and he really came through!
And, a bonus perk...he got a new computer for his birthday...or should I say his 'own' computer. It was becoming quite the battle in the evenings over our home desktop, aka MY computer. So, it definitely was a gift for me too :-) I am a tad bit jealous of his far superior laptop, but he deserves it! (But, stealing it every once in awhile is okay, right?)

Ah, the joys of a sprinkler and a back yard on a warm day!

At the end of April and beginning of May we headed to Utah for two family events:
Beckett Grange's baby blessing! What a sweet little nephew we have! The kids were in awe at this little life so precious and perfect. So crazy that Dan and Anne are actually in our old BYU married-student ward: the BYU 93rd ward...same chapel and everything (except, fortunately, there was no one still attending that we knew 10 years ago!). A bit of deja vu though. During testimony meeting it made me think back to those college days when you have all these huge life decisions to make as a young, married couple. It was challenging and great at the same time!
Of course we managed to squeeze in tons of activities---the zoo, children's museum, visit to Pine Valley, bridal shower, etc., etc. Here are a couple pictures with the cousins! We don't see them often enough!
