Easter was a wonderful time of faith, family and fun...we watched our Church's General Conference on TV, then got together for dinner and birthday celebrations for Cache, Missy and Kip. We had to have an egg hunt for anyone who wanted to participate...bunny Bailey hid the eggs then cheered and directed the fun.

We went to Orlando to join Missy, Kip and McKena for a fun-filled vacation. We stayed at the Reunion Resort, which was our base for 4 very different daily excursions. We had never been to Florida, so we wanted to see as much as our limited time would allow. SO, first stop was EPCOT...

I wanted to give Cache some space here...he has played on a club basketball team for the past 2 years, the Boise Slam. It takes a huge commitment from him and his family to keep him practicing during the week, and playing in tournaments on weekends. We love to watch him play...he is a hard worker, unselfish with the basketball, a great rebounder, has a nice outside shot and can drive to the hoop. He has a great instinct for where the ball is going to be and he gets himself there! We had him one weekend when Eden, Dan and Brooklyn went to Cedar City, UT for Dan's induction into the Southern Utah University Hall of Fame with his basketball team from 2000-2001. (The only team from SUU to play in the NCAA tournament) So, on my watch, Cache ends up with an injury!! Poor guy, there wasn't an ice cube, or first aid kit, or even a paper towel in the whole middle school in which they were playing...going clean and green with only automatic hand dryers can leave a question of how to clean up blood spatter...he was a mess!
When I found out that Bob Seger was touring again, and he would be playing in Las Vegas, it was time to go!! I first saw Bob, in person, in Columbia, MO in 1969. My college roommate was friends with him and some members of his band...she suggested we walk over to Mizzou and look for them. We ended up spending the day with them as they set up equipment for their concert that night. We got front row seats, and Bob asked me what song I would like to hear. I said, "Heavy Music!" That evening, Bob dedicated the song to me. A MOMENT in my life that I will never forget. It has been 46 years, and I was ready to rock again. We arrived in Las Vegas on Thursday...Eden and Dan flew in on Saturday to attend the concert with us. So, here is a recap of our adventures in LV.

Happy Valentine's Day!! I subbed today...reading specialist...such a fun day for kids in school; decorating boxes, delivering Valentines, yummy treats. I had so many offers of candy (trying not to do sugar), and the teachers' lounge was filled with delicious temptations. Ha! I resisted and feel victorious! And then...I came home to my sweetie, who bestowed a beautiful bouquet upon me.
