March Madness

March Madness is a term that is used to describe our month. A brief synopsis of our month includes spring break in St. George(flying and baseball), Brittany's wedding, Simon visiting from New Zealand, Trev snowboarding, and going to a Blaze game.
Marc's friend Steve owns this plane. While we were in St. George, Marc got to take it up twice with the boys and their friends. First on Friday with Tye and Kesler, and then on Sunday with Trev and Daylor and Jordan.
So the whole reason we were in St. George was for Trevor's baseball tournament. He did great pitching and hit 2 homeruns (almost 5 if not for some great reaches over the fence). His team ended up going into the playoffs as the 8th seed, but came together and pulled off 3 big wins to win the whole thing.
Our kitty got to come along with us as well. He did pretty good on the ride down and back.
On Saturday, Marc was given tickets to the Blaze game from Delta. We got to sit in the Delta suite, which was pretty nice. The Blaze lost, cuz they aren't very good...0-4. Tye brought Tazz and Trev brought Daylor. Overall it was lots of fun.
Now that Trevor is off-track for 3 weeks, Marc is trying to take him snowboarding/skiing before the snow all melts. This last week they went to Brighton for night skiing and took Trev's friend Cody.
Next, Simon is here visiting from New Zealand for 2 weeks. He goes back on April 2. He wasn't able to bring Jetaime and the kids, but we will take what we can get. He has been helping my parents and visiting with everyone who misses him. We were able to have 2 family dinners to get to spend extra time with him.
So last, but not least....Brits wedding! Well lets just say that she is still getting married, but now it is May 28th instead of August 2nd. Of course those who know me well, know that I am not too thrilled to have it so soon, but will do the best I can to still make it a great day for Brit. They bought a house up in Ogden that Jake will be moving into soon. Brit also got accepted as an alternate into the nursing program at Weber State for the fall.

Happy 17th Birthday Tye...Boy did that go by fast!

And I don't just mean the last 17 years, I mean that little red car the cop just clocked at 53 mph in a 35 mph zone.(Who knew the sunbird could even go that fast. Maybe the cop has dyslexia 53..35) What a fun birthday gift for Tye. He was returning to school from lunch and apparently couldn't get there quick enough. Tye says he was really only going about 45 mph before he realized he was going so fast and began to break, so how he was ever at 53 mph he isn't quite sure. At least the cop was sort of nice and only wrote him up for 50 mph. If I was Tye I would have said hey it's my birthday, can I have just a warning?
Anyway, Tye is generally a good kid and we are sure glad he is a part of our family.
Happy Birthday Tye!
