Popcorn Popping

It's here! It's finally here! Spring has arrived in Denver. Since spring is my favorite season, I had to take some pictures of the pretty blossoms we've been seeing. I wish they would stick around all year!

Pearl Street Mall and Estes Park

TJ and I went to Pearl Street Mall in Boulder with our friend Paul. Pearl Street Mall is an outdoor mall with a bunch of unique shops and places to eat. There's tons of great people watching too! We had lunch, looked in a bunch of shops, and tried to find Paul a date. JK! Paul moved here from Mesa about a month ago and it's been fun having one of our Arizona friends to hang out with. After lunch and browsing, we decided to make a little trip to Estes park. It's about 30 minutes from Boulder and sits against beautiful mountains. We saw some Elk and great scenery. It was such a beautiful day and it was nice to get outside and do some exploring around our area.

An Unfortunate Game of H-O-R-S-E... for TJ!

TJ, Brandon, Mason, Puppy, and I went to the park to shoot some hoops. The weather has been great lately, so we decided to make the most of it. We played a few games of HORSE and I must admit; I've got some skill. I beat TJ! I don't mean to brag, but there aren't many areas where I outshine TJ. It was really fun playing with the boys. The trees are starting to bud (just barely). Can't wait for spring!!!

Mason's Baptism

Mason was baptised on February 28. We were so excited to have Ted, Eric, Cindy, Jessica, and Rosalia come out and support Mason. All the Provo people arrived late Friday night, and Ted flew in Saturday morning. We went to Brandon's basketball game (which he won) and then Mason's baptism was Saturday afternoon. Ted gave a great talk on baptism and Mason was baptised and confirmed by TJ. After the baptism, Mason's Grandma Jones had a little celebration at her house with all Mason's relatives. After the party, Ted took us out to eat Chinese food at this excellent little restaurant called Chop Stix. The rest of the evening was spent playing Wii, watching movies, and spending time together. We're so glad Mason has made the decision to be baptised, and we're very grateful to have such supportive Badger relatives. Thanks to all who made the trip!
