time at the park

The last few Saturdays have had such nice weather that we've taken Brooklyn to the park and let her explore and run around.  The first Saturday we went to the park at Ensign Peak, which is just right up the street from us.
(sorry about the picture overload)

She loved walking everywhere with her walker..up and down the sidewalk and on the tennis courts.





even though there is snow on the ground, it really was a nice day






Then the following Saturday we took her to Liberty Park, a much bigger/nicer park.  It was pretty crowded, but she loved watching the other kids play and run around.  There was also a little dog that she kept trying to catch and the owner was nice enough to let her play with it for awhile.


there were also a bunch of different chimes and instruments you could play with that were neat



She would not sit up going down the slide.  Every time John put her on she would immediately lay down and smile.  But she still liked it.

our 2 year anniversary

March 20th was our 2 year anniversary.

I can't believe we've been married for two years.  In some ways it still feels like we're the young newlyweds and it other ways it feels like we've been married for years!  (I think it feels longer to me because we have a toddler and one on the way)

We had planned to keep it low key this year.  It kind of crept up on us and the night before we were asking each other what we should do.  We thought about going to the Kelly Clarkson concert (surprisingly this was John's idea, not mine), but decided to save the money.  John bought me flowers and surprised me and came home for lunch with them.  Then we had a nice dinner (homemade crepes with strawberries, whip cream, and chocolate on top) at home.  My cousin Paul called John after we had finished eating and asked him if we wanted lower bowl Jazz tickets....ummmm YES!!  It was a great, close game (they played the Oklahoma Thunder) and the Jazz won.  AND we didn't have to take Brooklyn which was EXTRA nice.  John's mom came down from Layton to watch her and put her to bed.  It was a fun night and perfect way to spend our anniversary.




The next night we went to Z'tejas (a mexican restaurant at the Gateway) for dinner and Mike babysat for us.  It was such a fun treat to go out to dinner, just the two of us.  

I'm so lucky to have John.  He is my best friend and I think we are perfect for each other.  I get him and he gets me...and that is one of the many reasons why I love him so much.

We've been accepted!!

That's right....we (ok, well John) has been accepted to the optometry school in.....

San Antonio, Texas

and

Glendale, Arizona

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are so excited and relieved we finally know for sure he has been accepted and we are moving this summer.  I am beyond proud of John and all time and hard work he has put in to school, volunteering, studying for the OAT, the application process, interviewing, etc.....I could go on and on.  It was a long, hard process (and we are only at the beginning) but it has paid off.  The big question now has been where do we go??  We will be letting one of them know this week that we're accepting their offer.

Also, John has an interview in Oregon at Pacific University on April 20th.  So if he gets accepted there, we will have another decision to make.  But the more options the better!
