A Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday, Beth Ellen!!!!
We had so much fun the past few days in Utah! We surprised Beth Ellen (Paul's oldest sister) for her 40th birthday!!! Unfortunately she ended up getting sick but we were able to pack in some good fun before she crashed hard.

Happy Birthday, BE. Hope you are starting to feel better.

Thank you Aunt Rachael & Uncle Ben!!!

For Christmas, my brother and his wife got us ticket to the Philharmonic to see the performance, BLAST!!!
It was an absolute blast for sure.
You can watch their promo video here:

This was some serious entertainment and it was myself with Paul and Zane. Zane was GLUED the entire time. It was about an hour and a half with an intermission and he was so hooked! It was just as much fun watching his face as it was to watch the performance for me! So, Zane has been inspired, Aunt Rachael and Uncle Ben!!! He came home and the next day he sat down at his drum set which I had really thought he has lost interest in, and began playing like this next video. He will play like this now for a very LONG time. He is so focused and he has entirely picked this up from this show and this show only! It is awesome. We really wish that Ben and Rachael had been with us of course. They are so great about their gifts and are always trying to find performances like this one to gift us along the way. I swear, without them our culture and art exposure would be starved. (They are the ones who took us to Zane's first ever concert when he was about 7 months old and of course it is such a cool one to say is your "first concert"!!! It was Old Crow Medicine Show and if you don't know them... check em out for sure.) So a thank you show to Uncle Ben and Aunt Rachael... WE LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH!!!!
