Cupcakes and Smarty Pants

We hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! We had a lot of fun-here's a quick breakdown.

Saturday: We did a little shopping looking for all those Memorial Day sales. We didn't do quite as good as we had hoped, but that's ok. That night we hiked the Y with Reed's old roommate, Craig and his fiance, Heidi. We enjoyed the great view from the top and had some much deserved Frosty's after!

Sunday: We were the keynote speakers in sacrament meeting at church and then hurried home for the best French toast with fresh strawberries and whipped cream on cinnamon raisin bread! It was so good! We ended our night by making and frosting some cupcakes! Our frosting wasn't quite the right consistency as you can tell from the picture!

Monday: Reed took me to the park to play tennis for the first time. It was pretty ugly, but we had fun and are excited to get better. The highlight of the day was trying a new recipe for dinner. We made Kung Pao chicken and I'm so impressed how well it turned out! It was really good!

Today we found out that Reed made the MPSF All-Academic Team! He was one of only four BYU players to make it. Way to go Reed, keep it up!

I'll Go Where You Want Me To Go...

Just wanted to say congrats to my little brother, Bryant, who just got his mission call to Lansing, Michigan! He reports to the MTC on September 3, so he'll get to Michigan just in time for one of their wonderful winters! We are so proud of Bryant and couldn't be more excited for him! Good luck Mr. B!!!!

Now What?

So now that volleyball season is over, I really don't know what to post about! Penn State ended up beating Pepperdine for the National Championship, which we weren't too happy about. Oh well. Ohio State made it to the Final Four so it was fun to get to watch Reed's teammate from high school, Brett Versen, get to play in the semis. He did great!

Reed has started spring term-surveying and chem! Woo hoo! And he's also excited to be working with his volleyball buddies cleaning on-campus student housing! And I just keep on working.

We were sad to have to say bye to Reed's brother and his family yesterday. We've had so much fun getting to spend time with them the past few weeks. We hope they make it back to Virginia safely and that we get to see them again soon!

And here's a very cold and windy graduation pic just for fun!
