Spring Football Clinic

We just got back from the BYU spring football clinic and scrimmage. It was a fun time the kids had fun being on the field and meeting their favorite players. We got autographs and pictures from Jake Heaps (the new QB from Washington) and Harvey Unga, mine and Rilee's favorite player. It was cool to see them up close and for the kids to meet them. then we got to watch some practice and a scrimmage. It was fun to slightly quench my football cravings and enjoy the gorgeous spring day.

DC / New York in February.....Why not?!?!

Here are some pics from our last trip to DC and New york. We went to DC for our annual Chick-fil-a seminar and since we were right there we jumped a flight to New York and met Cass and Danielle for a fun couple of wintery New York days. I loved DC and my favorite 2 things were the Lincoln memorial and the Star Spangled banner exhibit. Both had quite a reverent feel to them and I had to reflect on my love of our country and the blessings we have because of the forefathers and the patriots that gave so much that we can have our freedoms today. I wish we had more time in DC to sight see and I hope to get to go back some day to see more.

New York was next and we arrived to a blizzard and cold! It was cool to see the sights. We saw Ground Zero, FAO Schwartz toy store, the Statue of Liberty, Time Square, The subway (Where we treated to a pole dance by Cass and Danielle!), the Smithsonian, Central Park and many other places. We saw 2 shows, Billy Elliot and Mary Poppins. I liked Mary Poppins believe it or not! The trip was a success and although I could live without another trip to New York, Becky Loved it there and wants to go back for sure. Maybe next time I can sneak in a football game to make it funner for me!! enjoy the picks.
