I'm an idiot

There was a casualty at our house this week. Who knew an iPod couldn't survive a run through the washer. Even worse - I was the one who stuck it in my shorts after running. Killing the iPod wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't Kevin's and if he hadn't won it in a drawing (which was his only hope of owning an iPod). Despite what some may say, I do have a heart and will be replacing the iPod for Kev....sorry love.

Excursions Summary

The past couple weeks have been filled with family time and good eating, two of our favorite things! Here is a quick recap of why Ry and I are so bored and a tad bit lonely at home now:

Made a trip to Idaho for Kev's spring break (ah - the perks of still being students!). While there we went to Kev's parents' retirement/mission party, relaxed with lots of family, and enjoyed an actual date (I'm talking the whole works, lunch, movie, and no Ry).

The following week Ry and I went on a trip with my fam to visit the area where my baby bro. served his mission. I wish I could say he served in Hawaii or somewhere with a warm beach, but it was actually cool to go to the Independence, Missouri mission. Lots of church history sites: Adam-Ondi-Ahman, Independence, and Nauvoo.

Finally, just this past weekend, my brother, sister-in-law, and their little girl made a pit stop at our house on their way to Minnesota. Originally they planned to stay two nights, but after some persuasion and a convenient snow storm, they stayed an extra two nights! Of course lots of delicious food was involved thanks to my bro. who is a fantastic cook and the dim sum restaurant we discovered in a ghetto part of Denver. I miss you guys!
