We had a great time in St George. Courtney's first 2 dances went really well. When they started the show routine things seem to be fine. When Courtney came out as the New York Yankees, she was swinging her bat and hit herself in the eye. Thankfully I was setting in the front row because she looked at me and she started tearing up. I mouth to Courtney that everything was OK and she started smiling really big to stop from crying. I was so proud of her. She was dancing and was having a really hard time seeing, but she finished out he dance. I told her after what a great job she did and than got her some cotton candy. She was happier after that. It was a really nice drive with just Courtney and I. We had some great chats.

Right when we got home we changed and jumped back in the car and drove to West Jordan, where Jake sister got married. (check out the pictures) It was a very small wedding, but that really doesn't matter because they are so happy. I got some really cute pictures of my family at the wedding.

Jake was great with the kids and I was impressed when the house was clean when I got home, well most of it anyway. The kids were even dressed for the wedding.


  1. Glad to hear you and Courtney had a good time! So sorry to hear she hit herself in the eye, hope it's better today and not all black and blue. Just looked at the recent photos you uploaded and everyone looks great and your trip looks like it was a blast! God bless you all.

  2. That shows how important it is to be WITH your kids. It just takes a Mom in the audience to make a little girl brave beyond measure, for that's what Courtney was getting on like this after a bad start. You really can be proud of her. And as a family you are a bunch of heros, you really, really are!
