Catch-Up Photos and The Puke is Over!

#1's birthday was last Monday:

My parents came to visit last week, and on Friday, my sister came down from SLC with her boys to join the fun. Luckily, #4 only puked once on Friday. Unfortunately, it was right when we arrived at the park --all over his car seat. Yuck. We thought the worst was over, but while we were at Chili's for dinner, he had diarrhea about 4 times. I was so tired of the sickness! He had been puking/pooping for 4 days straight, but I knew it was a virus because his fever didn't last. So I asked Brandon, my dad, and BIL to give #4 a blessing. It was hard for him to sit still and he wasn't sure why they were touching his head, but it worked, dear reader. All the sickness stopped and hasn't returned. That just solidified my testimony of the Priesthood. I am so grateful to have it in my home!
Here are some pictures of the Park (there were hundreds of tulips in bloom; it was such a nice surprise!):

Oh my gosh, those tulips are GORGEOUS! I love it. The last of mine died out about 2 weeks ago. Ah well, the roses are in now.

Yeah for priesthood blessings!

Those tulips are amazing. What a fun looking park. I'm sorry about the puke, I hope it's all gone. There's nothing worse than the stomach flu.

That is the one thing I miss most about Utah (besides our family) is the tulips! We just can't really get them to grow here in this hot desert.

Beautiful tulips!

When I first looked at the picture of your sister I thought, "Did Cheryl dye her hair and not tell us?" But then I realized it was your sister. You guys look a lot alike.

Sorry about the puke...puke on carseats is the worst! Glad the Priesthood blessing worked. I love the Priesthood.

You know I am sucker for tulip pics. Those are beautiful! I love the pic of your dad on the slide. Classic. Your daughters look quite different. They are beautiful. It looks like a wonderful day at the park. I'm glad you had fun!

Happy birthday to your oldest!

Hurray for the end of puke!

Great pics--beautiful tulips and family!

Those tulips make me happy. Here in Cache Valley we haven't seen any yet. I had the opportunity to plant about 50 bulbs from my neighbor's flower bed in the fall and I let the darn things rot away in a grocery bag. Sad. They were all yellow, though, so maybe I subconsciously wanted to wait till I could get several colors???? No, probably just procrastination.

Your family looks just wonderful. I can only imagine how fun it would be to have the 'rents come stay for several days! What fun!

I know! They are just divine. I was so happy to see them as we rounded the corner...

Agreed. There really is nothing worse than stomach flu!

But the desert has other beauties, right...? I'm trying to think of one... :)

Jamie J-
Thanks! I think she's gorgeous, so I take that as a compliment. I should dye my hair like that. It would look a lot better, for sure...

I know --people comment about how my girls look nothing alike. It's true, but you know how that's not important; family is family is family! :)

Thank you! We are beautiful, arent' we? Ha! :)

I have committed to plant bulbs next year! We can encourage each other to remember, okay?
