Quick Updates!

Last weekend I returned from Orlando playing in the USADB (USA deaf basketball) tournament. My team took 5th place out of 12 teams and did pretty well. It's a bummer that we lost our first game since that ruined our chances of playing for first but we were able to win our next 3 games and placed 5th! We enjoyed a great time at the resort and the wonderful pool! Island of Adventure was way cool and my favorite ride there was SPIDERMAN! It's amazing how they can make it look like you really are in the middle of all the action. We are all excited to play next year in San Antonio! I am just glad I am still playing ball! I love playing ball and play on Wednesday nights with my former college ball friends. We have such a good time! It helps me not to be so rough and keep up with all the youngsters! 

Our awesome and sweet friends, Matt and Amie! We had a great time with them staying at our home during General Conference weekend! We also enjoyed a late midnight snack of SUSHI! Mmm! If you love sushi go to Showgun Restaurant in downtown SLC on Friday or Saturday night from 11:00 pm to 2:00 am and get half off on everything! Amie is wearing her birthday hat her mom made for her. She was to wear it everywhere she went! Cute Hat!

Matt with Sam and Brooklyn! We think they make a cute future couple! Maybe an arranged marriage? (hahaha) Not pictured is Jake the older brother. He is quite handsome!
Brooklyn at the ZOO! She loved all the animals and enjoyed hanging out with Matt and Amie. Thanks guys for watching Brooklyn and treating her like one of your own! We know you want her but she stays with us! :)

A few weeks ago Matt, Brooklyn and I were able visit Matt's Grandparents in Arizona.  My grandparents live here in Salt Lake but we got to visit with them as well. We sure love you all and hope you know we think of you often! 
Great Grannie! We sure miss you! This is Matt's Grandma who lives in Mesa, AZ. We are so blessed to know her and be a part of her family.  We hope you move to Utah someday Grannie!

Great Grandma and Grandpa Bailey in Arizona! It was so good to see you both! These are Matt's grandparents from his dad's side. They also live in Mesa, AZ. We enjoyed a BBQ with all of their children and celebrated Grandma Bailey's birthday!
Great Grandpa Groen! We enjoy making dinner for you! This is Shari's Grandpa and Grandma (below). We enjoy going to their home and making a delicious dinner! We have had salmon and brown sugar chicken that are tantalizing! Shari made her famous peach cobbler and we gobbled that all down! Grandpa wanted the leftovers! We hope you enjoyed it!
Great Grandma Groen, we love to visit with you! What cute smiles you both have! Brooklyn loves to visit with them and of course play with their toys!

Hey Sista!
I am glad that you had a great time in Orlando. I didn't know you got to go a theme park! How fun!!!

You won't catch me in a sushi bar at any time of the day or night!!! I am glad that you like it but as Dad would say, you must like to drink your bathwater too!

I am so glad that you guys take time out to visit grandparents. I really wish we would have gone to see Grandma and Grandpa more often. Now we live far away and can't get there whenever we want. Maybe next time we are up we can go together and make dinner for them.
Love you!

Oh and if you want a post that you started long ago to post with todays date, you have to copy and paste the older part into a new post. It will always post with the date you started it on. Does that make sense?
