Hey everyone. Its been a while. April is almost over and since i've been MIA this past month I thought i'd catch you up on whats been going on in our crazy fun lives. First off, can we talk about the blizzard that graced us last night? Come on Rexburg....you're killing me...
April 6th I celebrated my 21st birthday. David through me this grandios surprise party that I ruined by not showing up. Its a long epic/sad story that I can now laugh at but I don't really want to get into the details...haha. If you would like to know what happened we can talk in person ok?
After the surprise-party-drama we decided to lay low for a couple days and head out on our trip to AZ a day early. We stopped at McDonalds in IF to honor my big girl birthday status. It was the best McNuggets i've ever had. period.
That night we drove down to Utard and spent the next couple days apartment shopping and spending time with the in laws. My bro and sis in law Joe and Angie made me a scrumptious healthy birthday dinner of Turkey pot pie. IT WAS SOO GOOD!
We got up at 4am the next day to be at the airport.
Thank goodness the flight is super short from SLC to PHX because I was soooo excited to see my family!!! We spent the next week relaxing in the arizona sun, chillin with the sibs and enjoying the company of my family. Here is a bung-hole of photos from our trip.
My sister Jocelyn had Prom the night we got into town. Mom and all the sisters made a day of getting her all dolled up.
She looked sooo good!
While Jocelyn was dancing it up at Prom the rest of the family headed over to Rooster Roos a country saloon restaurant for my grandparents 60th wedding anniversary.
Momma bear loving my hubbys big biceps.
Welcoming in the sun! I almost forgot what it felt like.
David and I also started a love affair with the newest addition to the Wood family. Dolce!
Feeling fried crispy.
We went to Sophia's basketball banquet where she received her first trophy. She got the most sportsmanlike award.
The best part of the day was when dad pulled out his rem 223 and let the air out of a rock squirrel up on the hill. I was impressed at his shot! That squirrel didn't have a chance. As the body feel flat backwards the innards sprayed up in a "red mist". It was defiantly a father daughter bonding moment.
The next morning we got up early and prepped ourselves for the hike up the infamous Camelback Mt! It was 85 degrees at 8am.
We spent the last days lounging by the pool soaking up as much sun as we could.
It had been since the wedding that i'd seen my family last. AKA WAY TO LONG! It was so good to be with everyone again. I couldn't believe how much all the sibs had grown. I love my family sooo much. I cried when we left. We are already planning our next trip!!
