our dessert in march: family visitors.

our cousins from southern cali spent a few days with us earlier this month. we played blokus {our fave family board game!} + played rook + stayed up till the wee hours of the morning + engaged in soul-searching conversations + went skiing + visited the bean museum + stopped by the byu bookstore for candy + spent the afternoon at the provo beach resort + ate at malawi’s + ordered pizza + cheered for myla at futsol + made a big taco bar at home with our fave starter sauce + ordered in indian food + gained a few pounds in just a few days…

a very good investment in the bank of life.

then… aunt sue & uncle irv from alaska washington, came to visit for five days + brought our first dog-house-guest. once again, we played blokus (a LOT!} + played sorry + sela helped aunt sue knit + took the dog on lots of walks + ate at communal + had a family reunion at the mayan + sunday morning at starbucks {did you know they have cake pops & mini donuts now?!?} + more board games + smashburger + pirate island + aunt sue & uncle irv are roped into helping with homework + arm wrestling + they are on their way to the grand canyon now… {we miss you! but not the dog. xo!!!}

…and there you have it. the dessert of life.

  2. I'm lovin' your hair in those first few photos, so beautiful! A hair challenged girl like myself would love to see you do a post on how you get it to look like that someday.

    Glad you had some great family time.
