Spring Activities

(Ty = top of the screen)
Ty had a fantastic track season.  He started off the season
by placing in all four of his events (100 and 200 meter,
and the 4 X 100 and 4 X 400 relays as anchor) during a meet held
specifically for the top runners in the Stanislaus District.
He concluded the season by qualifying to race in two events
during the Masters Track Meet...section finals 
which take place prior to sending individuals to State.  

Coldplay concert!

While Anne Marie was home for a three and a half
week break, we crammed in as much fun as we could.
Coldplay put on an awesome show.

We went to the Oakland Temple one day.  Kylie
went through the temple for the first time prior
to serving a four month 'Performing Artist'
mission this summer in Nauvoo.
Beautiful women.

Several women in my family attended the 'Spring Event'
hosted by Teresa Andersen.  She, Ruth Fortado, and Sandi
Pittson prepared an entire year for this special event.
There were vendors, lunch, classes, and lovely
things to see in every direction!  
Except for the fact that we needed a larger
frame...this is a fun photo of us!

We all take different paths in life,
but no matter where we go, we take a
little of each other everywhere.

I purchased one of these wall plaques. It states:

Do not spoil what you have by desiring
what you have not; But remember that what
you now have was once among the
things you only hoped for.

Following lunch, everyone took 
home a vase of flowers.

Bev and her mother, Donna Thompson.

Anne Marie has a little love affair going on 
with pigs.  She bought 'this little piggy.'

Strawberry dipping.

Karin and Molly

Mindy Gledhill performed.

Anne Marie and I snuck away to Cambria
for a couple of days.

Playing around with the recent eclipse.
Little moon reflecting off of Ty's
camera onto Chase's shirt.

Lots of little shadows on Ty's
shirt casting between the
leaves on the trees.

Call was one of the groomsmen in the wedding
of his good friend, Erik Arakelian.  While home,
the Falke's treated us to a super fun
day at the lake.

Kristy and Brad

I'm so disappointed because I tried to upload
a couple more little video clips of a few memorable/funny
moments from the day, but I can't get them
to work.  Sorry Call and Anne Marie!

Abby and Ty being Abby and Ty.

Almost all of our children!  We were missing
our lovely daughter-in-law, Whitney!

We just had a blast being together.
Such a fun day.  We were so grateful to
the Falke's for providing a fun venue for
all of us to be together to laugh,
eat, and just enjoy being together.



Anne Marie and Ty one morning before Church.
...always fun to have your children come home.
