Spring Break

We had a really great week. Mark's Brother Brian and his wife Amanda and their sweet baby Avery came and visited us for their spring break. It was so much fun to be with them - they are just a blast, and Avery is such a cute giggly guy. Boyce just loved having him around. We love having visitor too because we get to do all the tourist stuff all, so we took just a few pictures. :)

St. Paddy's Day & Baby Steps

Happy Spring everyone!! (well I guess officially it's the first day tomorrow) We are so happy it's here and it's nice to have a spring where the temperature is in the 80s! We had a fun St. Patrick's Day. Like every year, Mark made us green waffles that were delicious. Boyce and I went to story time at the library which is always a highlight during the week. We also enjoy the beautiful weather taking a walk to the park. oh yeah and guess who is walking (well kinda of)?!!?! Check out the video

New Baby


We have a beautiful new niece- Sybil Sue. We took a little trip to Arizona to see her get blessed. It was so fun being with our family, My mom and dad were there too. We went to see some ruins, went to the zoo and just had fun in the sun.

plans have changes

Mark saw this video and decided being a dentist is not for him.

the real reason

“Somewhere in your quest for spiritual knowledge, there is that ‘leap of faith,’ as the philosophers call it. It is the moment when you have gone to the edge of the light and step into the darkness to discover that the way is lighted ahead for just a footstep or two.”
President Boyd K. Packer

Mark and I felt strongly that we were supposed to moved to Vegas after graduation from BYU. We thought we were coming here to eventually go to dental school. Little did we know the Lord had different plans for us. It's a really long story and I want to spare you all the details, so suffice it to say, during the last two months numerous experiences and many people we have met have lead us to the conclusion that the Lord wants Mark to go into Nursing. So as often happens years of prepartion has leads us down an entirely different path then we have planned. We know the Lord led us to Las Vegas to meet the right people and have experiences to lead us the right way.
We are exicted to move forward and know what is right. We would tell you the details of our plans but they are subject to change. :) Stay tuned for more.
