So Mckay had to take a music class this semester (weird I know) One of his assignments was to attend a concert. Well he got an A on that one! One of the hardest A’s he has ever had to earn. We went to Jason Mraz at the Red Rocks amphitheater in Colorado. He is an amazing performer with a great voice. Red Rocks is one place if you ever get the chance to go there for a concert it is worth it! The atmosphere and landscape is amazing.
My niece Gracie got baptized on July 4th This was one great event. She got fireworks and lots of them. My brother did a great job baptizing her. It was beautiful and boy did the tears flow. She is a very special girl who is growing up so fast and has a lot of family that love her especially 2 of them that might live far away but we think of her all the time. Love you Grace!

C is for Carter Man! He destroyed that cake.
Sean was not very excited to get sticky.
It was a beautiful day in Denver.
Can you see the snow balls starting to form on his fur?
Its Christmas here in April. Yeah! At least someone seems to like it.
Sammy loves the snow so much. He plays outside for hours just digging and rolling around in it. We throw snowballs and he just does not understand how is disappears but dang it he is going to find it!
For Easter weekend we took a trip to Denver with some friends and went to the Denver temple This was a great time especially because our friends have a 1 year old that we had the chance to watch while they went to the temple. We took Sean to IHOP and shopping. We had a really good time. He loves McKay.
Mary sent us an Easter basket filled with candy and an egg decorating kit and my Dad sent me an Easter lily. He gets me one every Easter along with my mother and sister in laws. Thanks!
We also had a lot of B-days two were our friends babies turning 1 which of course are always a blast. There was a lot cake and icing all over!
Then McKay had his 26th. We celebrated by going to school and working all day! That's what I call a party! Nah we did go to dinner then opened presents that night. I put a lot of thought into his gifts so I hope he really liked it.

So in all reality you don’t even have to leave the resort. Everything was all right there for you to enjoy, but we also did a few things outside of the resort. ☺ Just a few. We all went to Xceret, which is kind of like the Mexico zoo and adventure park. We got to be with and see lot of different animals. They had an aquarium and butterfly garden. Dad and I went swimming and snorkeled in the underground caves. Very cool! A little scary! There were a lot of shows about the Mayan culture and traditional Mexican horse show. Needless to say, we took a lot of pictures.
The following day Dad and I went golfing to the Playa Car golf course. It was very hard course for me but we did really well and I really surprised myself! It was such a beautiful course and in immaculate condition. It was so relaxing yet challenging. I must say as I am writing about it right now I do choke up a little because it was one of the best times I have ever had with my dad. Unforgettable.
The next day my grandparents, dad and I went to Tulum. We walked around looking at all the ruins and how the people used to live. I loved hearing how they lived, the things they believed and how they dealt with everyday situations. I am interested in reading more about it. My grandparents went back to the resort while dad and I went to the cutest little Mayan village. It was amazing that they let us go in their classroom and the little ones put on a show for us. The women of the village made us some food to eat that was very yummy, and we watched one of their religious ceremonies. I would have to say it was quit a humbling experience to see these wonderful people, how they live and how they enjoy the very simple things in life. Next we went to an underground spring, enclosed in a cave like a dome. To get there we walked down a 189 spiral stairs. (the guide told us that). The water was a little chilly but so clear. It was really refreshing and exhilarating.
I had the most memorable time spending the vacation with my parents and grandparents. I am so grateful to have such a wonderful life. This trip was unforgettable. I am a very blessed person. Thanks to McKay for letting me go and Thanks to Mom and Dad for giving me the opportunity.
