Happy Anniversay!

We were married March 22, 2003 in the Bountiful, UT LDS Temple. It's hard to believe it's been 6 years and then again it's hard to imagine my life without Troy. To celebrate we had some sweet friends watch Landon all day on Saturday so we could go to NYC for the day and attend the Temple in Manhattan. That was such a neat experience for us and are so glad it was able to work out for us to go. The Juilliard School is right across the street from the temple so we attended a viola recital which was also really neat. Then we had a nice dinner at Sarabeth's Restaurant and headed home.

Our actual anniversary was Sunday and the Chiapelli's invited us over for dinner. After dinner we played circus and yoga. Doesn't Troy's headstand look great? And Carrie is 8 months pregnant doing that balancing pose. We had planned to have Chocolate Fondue so we took that over to their house and had a great time and ate everything!

Kids' Castle

Isn't this an awesome park? It is called Kids Castle and is about 20 minutes from us. I thought the story behind the park was really neat so I'll share it. Kids' Castle was designed and named by children of the community through an art contest in 1996. A committe was put together to turn their art into a reality and a year later was assembled in 12 days! The main castle is 35' and is quite the maze inside. We had a great time and can't wait until the weather keeps getting warmer so we can go back.

Happy St. Patty's Day

Our St. Patrick's Day was very uneventful. I went to a Body Pump class at the YMCA and when we came home it was beautiful outside so we stayed outside for a while. There's nothing better than bubbles! At the end of the day I realized that I never got a picture with us in our green so we took a quick snapshot before bathtime. Troy was in his blue scrubs so he was our photographer......like I said, very uneventful.

Peace Valley Park

The other day the weather was so nice that Troy broke out his shorts and rollerblades! We went on a picnic to a nice lake that will be beautiful scenery when all the leaves come back on the trees.

Peddler's Village

This was one more activity we did during Spring Break. Peddler's Village is this cute little shopping village. We had some yummy Mexican hot chocolate and then played in this kids place called Giggleberry Fair.

Snow on Spring Break?

This is the tail end of the snow that we got while Troy was on Spring Break. It was fun that he could go out and play with Landon because usually the snow is pretty much melted before he comes home. Hopefully this is the last big storm of the year and we can look forward to "real" Spring Break weather.

Spring Break

Troy had Spring Break a few weeks ago and we went to Hershey, PA for an overnight with another family in Troy's class. It was so cold. It's never fun when you start Spring Break with a major snow storm. We still had a good time and it was nice to have Troy around.

The tour is a ride and since no one was there that day we got to stay on and ride a few times.

On the tour you meet these singing cows.

Landon got to be a factory worker and push a button that lets Hershey Kisses fall out.

Can you see the chocolate oozing out his mouth?

Then they have the kids do a little shake it up dance.

After he was a factory worker he found the goodies!

Landon loves cookies. Cookie has been one of his first words.
