We just returned from Spring break in Boise. It was relaxing and a fun change of scenery. The big attraction on the trip was my nephew Charlie. All the kids took turns feeding, changing and playing with him. He is so cute!

So what might one do while in Boise? These are the regular attractions:

1. A morning walk on the greenbelt by the Boise river which happens to be in my parent's back yard.

2. Catch a movie. The boys went with my Dad to see Avatar.

3. Mongolian BBQ! The best things with a big group. Grab your bowl, fill it up with what you want and watch them cook it while you wait. (This time the gumball machine had 50 cent false teeth that were good for about 15 minutes of laughter for Jordan and me.)

4. A visit to my 97 year old Grandma's house where we pulled out the 40 year old Spyrograph and other games like Parchisee, and Hi-Q. She showed us old pictures and of course fed Ben some treats she had whipped up. We brought lunch and we talked for an hour of so.

5. Play several rounds of Scattergories. We played some with my B.F. Joni from High school and her cute girls.

6. Eat world famous Grandpa pancakes made from scratch with buttermilk. Sooooo delicious!

7. Take a shopping trip to the mall with Julie the most awesome Mom, and maybe some cheesecake at the Factory!

8. Have a relaxing evening dip in the hot tub, under the stars.

Sounds pretty good, doesn't it? It was fun. Thanks Mom and Dad! You're the best.

Hello everyone, I just returned from out Republican Party delegate meeting and guess who is the new 4th precinct state delegate? My awesome husband Tom. In fact all 3 state delegates are Mike Lee supporters! Wow this is going to be an exciting election. Kim

I am anxiously awaiting Jake's mission call. I think it will come next Wednesday. I am thinking Mexico or maybe somewhere in the eastern United States!

Josh had an awesome game tonight at the Flash Factory. He finally started shooting the ball and made 3 of his 6 shots.

Ben's Team is in the finals for Pleasant Grove Rec. 9th/10th grade team and it starts at 2:00! The same time as the BYU game! We have great seats and were going to miss most of the game because Tom is Ben's coach. I would way rather watch Ben's team play!

Danny has his last city league game Saturday. He got fouled last game and swooshed 2 free throws which my friend Kelsea texted to me because we were in Arizona.

Arizona by the way is fabulous! Wendy and Tom are pretty awesome too! We had such a good time with their family. Every kid in that family is so great! Love you guys!

Jordan's haircut is so fun and cute! I was never that brave! She looks darling! I am envious of the simplicity and style.

I want all my extended family to know I read your blogs at work all the time and love them! Kim

The new year brings new goals, cold weather and a lot of basketball! We have been going to 4-5 games a week between the boys and it is so much fun! Danny is playing and loving it! Josh is playing on a few teams and Ben is playing.
