spring showers

Our Easter Outfits
Today is a very rainy day in Provo Utah. The flowers and trees are in full bloom and as they say "April showers bring May flowers". Geoff and I have been out enjoying nature these days. One of our favorite things to do is throw the frisbee at the park a block from our house. The other day we actually brought the golf clubs, a frisbee, a basketball, baseball mits and a baseball. We then played with each of these sporting items! It was a blast and it felt good to be outside. I have my terrible allergies under control with the 24 hour pill called Zyrtec. It is saving my life! We love the spring time, it is our favorite time of the year!!

Good Friends, Good Times

the Beesons came down to Moab the second day we were there...

Melody and Erin

Ben and Geoff
The two main arches we saw were this arch, the Landscape Arch,
and the Delicate Arch. This is as close as we could get to the arch because
the middle of the arch continues to break off and it is getting thinner and thinner.
Who knows how much longer it will be I'm glad we were able
to see it before it's gone!

Moab: arches national park

balancing rock

Climbing through this narrow gap was scary, yet exciting!

Once I saw Geoff, Ben, and Melody all do it,
I knew I needed to as well!
Since visiting Arches National Park a few weeks ago I have come to appreciate my surroundings more fully. We are so blessed to live in a place that is beautiful and pleasing to the eye!
Taking time to stop and appreciate God's creations helps me to feel of his love for me. Spring has arrived here in Provo and the blossoming flowers and trees a quite a sight to see! Unfortunately, I have developed allergies to these blooming wonders and have been miserable for almost 3 weeks now! . . . itchy throat, runny nose at times, completely clogged nose at times, watery eyes. Luckily I have a very caring and thoughtful husband that made me a very very hot bath filled with vicks vapor rub. For a good two hours I could breathe through my nose again and it was glorious! I always took breathing for-granted until it has been very hard to do for not 1 or 2 days, but 3 weeks! I must simply try to enjoy the beauty and not think of the discomfort it is putting me through!
