as of late

So far April has kept us pretty busy. But busy in a really great way.

We went on Trek with the Focus program at the beginning of the month. Well, I went for a couple of days and then came home for work. Lucas was the King of Trek, and stayed the whole week. I have to say, I love going on Trek with him. I really enjoy regular camping, but seeing him with those kids is another story. He is totally in his element. Wilderness + bossing kids around (for their safety). Pure genius. I took a bunch of pictures, but they're still on my little camera ... maybe you'll get a separate post on just the camping trip.

Right after coming back from Trek, we headed to the airport - two of my very favorites came to visit! Well, four of my favorites. Ellen and baby Sophi came last Thursday, then Blaine and Olli showed up Friday. We had the best weekend!

We did a little shopping at the new City Creek Mall, had a lovely lunch in Park City with my sister, visited Temple Square (even saw the Mo-Tab live!), and a million other things. It was the best time.

I didn't take nearly enough pictures, but here are a few from a sunny day at Temple Square.

Wow, that's a lot. Sorry, it's just so pretty.

1. Mormon Tabernacle Choir - Music & The Spoken Word
2. from the roof of the Conference Center
3. won't he be a cute dad someday?
4. it's like we're newlyweds
5. cute friends with cute babies
6. temple
7. temple
8. temple

Also, Luke's softball league started last night! He's playing on a team of Journey employees ... they're pretty good.

And one more thing. I don't want to brag, but the greatest thing happened this week. Background: our kids go to group therapy each night for 3 hours ... 2 90-minute groups of varying topics. This week the therapist who teaches Family Therapy told Lucas about a great compliment she heard this week. She had asked the kids about marriage and love and one of the clients said he didn't believe in love. He'd never seen a happy relationship and didn't believe it was possible. Mo spoke up and said that he used to feel the same, but he was really glad he got placed with us because now he knows what love looks like and he thinks he can have a happy marriage.

Ha! We're winning!

PS Thanks Ellen & Blaine for coming, and Blaine gets a double thank-you for bringing a sick baby (who was such a trooper). We love you guys! Come back soon!
