delightful weekend

I just realized, as I sit here drinking my delicious chocolate milk (thought you'd like to know), that I always post after the weekend or about the weekend. Well here we go again. ha ha I guess that is when most of our fun happens. Well this weekend was a great busy weekend. All of the bros and their fams were in town for Chuck's farewell. He doesn't actually leave until the 24th of April but with all of the conferences and fast Sunday he had to have it now. The fun started on Friday when we were all able to go to the temple. It was such a neat experience to have our entire family in the Celestial room. Saturday we had an Easter egg hunt which was a blast. I got into it as much as the little kids. Sunday was the farewell, Chuck did awesome, it was pretty surreal when he was giving his talk. I can't believe he is old enough to go on a mission. Here is lil Scottie and his mama out getting some treats. Here are all the kids, it's crazy to see how big our family is getting. These kiddies are awesome. Now if any of you went to high school with me you probably remember my sweet car...okay maybe not. haha I drove a Mitsubishi Eclipse that had like 240,000 miles on it. Two of my brothers drilled holes into the muffler so that it sounded cool, loud, something. ha Also it had an awesome sound system. Anyways, all of us drove this car to high school. One brother is missing in the picture, but 6 kids, one car. And 5 of those drivers were boys so you can imagine how this car was treated. ha I still remember learning to drive it(it's a stick), thinking I was awesome with my sound system and shifting, being scared on big hills, killing it many a times, stuffing girls in there to go to games, the awesome beaded seat covers that my hair would get caught in, and trying to make out in this thing. (it's not a very roomy car.)haha Well the reason for this shout out is because my parents are getting rid of it since it is not needed. It's sad to see it go but I have so many awesome memories in this car, and well it's time. Anyways if you couldn't tell our weekend was awesome! Hope yours was too.

I remember watching Jade hit a bail of hay with that car in the high school parking lot... Why was there a bail of hay in the parking lot??? I have no idea.

I think your weekend might have topped ours!! Being around family is the best. We went to Moab to camp for 2 days and to hike all over Arches National Park... our weekend was a blast as well! Thank goodness for amazing weekends that get us through the tough weeks!
