Day 112 - Thursday, April 22

This is not a great picture because I had to take it on the sly...

the university that Jason will be attending in the fall had a dinner for incoming freshman in the area. It was great. They put all the kids at one table to get to know one another and then the parents and family sat at tables around the room. I was so impressed with this and happy to get the opportunity to meet some other parents with children going to JBU.

Day 107 - Saturday, April 17

At the Butterfly Festival
This was after the memorial ceremony in the pouring rain.
However, the rain did not dampen the meaning or the beauty of it!!

Mom letting a butterfly go for Aunt Mary Nelle

The butterflies represent New life and are a beautiful representation of our life in Christ. As our bodies on this earth die, those in Christ receive a new and more glorious body in heaven.

This was a very special day....I can't even begin to explain.

Day 100 - Saturday, April 10

What are vacations for than for relaxing and napping?

We saw the 12 tenors in the morning. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed them...that is until one of them grabbed me from the audience to dance...ugh! Maybe it was because I was the youngest lady in the room! ha!

Then in the evening we went to see Six....

These guys were AWESOME!!!!
they are brothers and all their music and instruments were made only with their voices..very cool! they were also a lot of fun. I think this was my favorite show!

Day 99 - Friday, April 9

We spent the morning lounging around and then sat through a sales presentation on time shares.....we were given 2 tickets to a show at the end and they were dismayed by our strength to say NO to the time share!! I'll sit through just about anything for free tickets! ha!
We toured Stonehill winery in the afternoon, this was taken while tasting wine at the end of the tour! yum! And then we spent the evening at the Dixie Stampede!

Steve bought me some Cali Lilies for Easter.
I love how when I water them, the water is drawn up into the plant and comes out the tip of the flower in a drop!!

I was telling my friend, Dena, that Steve and I went out to try Sushi the other night. However, we got to the restaurant and had no idea what to order.

So, she took me and 2 other friends out to "teach" us how to order sushi!!
I was surprised at how much I LOVED it!!

It was very fun sitting up at the sushi bar and watching him make it all.

I even loved the raw was delicious!!!
I am hooked!!!
