Spring Break 2010

This is the first year that I've actually looked forward and counted down the days to spring break. After the laundry was done we got out of town. We decided to go and play with Grandma & Grandpa and the Browns in Utah. The drive down was uneventful. The next morning we woke up to this.The picture above was taken at a restaurant called "The Pie". We toured the University of Utah while we were in Utah. Two of my brothers went there. They texted Uncle Nate in CA to get the inside track of U of U. He told us we had to go to this place. It was in the basement of this building. People have signed the walls everywhere. The pizza was delicious. Aunt Dana said it was the best she had ever had. It was fabulous and now there is another "pro" in U of U column. Does Mason look good in red? Side note, I told Jordan to get ready to go and he texted back and said "if I go tour U of U can I get another BYU tshirt?"
April Fools Day: One of my childhood memories was coming home from school to a cake. Then we cut it to find a box. None of my other siblings have memories of this. Side note, my brother says that we did it to him. Nope. It was always dad playing the trick on us. This year Chelsea & Kassidy made the cake for Grandpa. This is him stabbing the cake. They licked the icing and it took just as long to make it as it did to destroy it. Perfect! Love ya, Dad!
Aunt Dana & I got on Family Fun and enjoyed playing with the kids. Doug says we are diabolical. We had cupcakes for dinner (meatloaf with colored mashed potatoes), sushi for dessert and juice (jello with a straw). The other fun thing was letting each kid pick a number. Uncle Eric had picked 16 different utensils and whatever number they had they had to use that utensil. (thus the ice cream scoop) One of the funniest was Max who got a mallet. He then mutilated the cupcake with a big smile on his face.

This is the day before we left. UCK! I'm done with winter!

The ride home was gross. It rained then snowed then rained then snowed (rinse, repeat) for the last 4 hours. But now it is General Conference Weekend and we have 2 days to recover from our Spring Break. It was very fun to be with my sisters and stay up too late.
Thanks Mom & Dad for letting us invade your space. We love coming home!
