So we have officially been in our house for 3 weeks now (man it has gone by fast). We have been busy just about every day doing stuff on the yard, washer drier, basement, organizing. But it has been great to do those simple things on our own place. My parents have come over twice now and they were a big help with the yard. My mom really enjoys doing yard work (not sure why) so she was in her element outside.
The backyard, this photo actually makes it look pretty good...You can see to the left the rocks Brit and my mom put down for some stepping stones to "the shed"
This is Mark assessing the situation
We had a ton of these lava type rocks in the yard so we put them to good use.
Now that's only 1/2 the pile we cut down between the two days. Anyone know of a yard guy that will haul these away for me? Help!
We pruned the rose bushes, put these rocks in, put in some of those solar landscape lights, pruned the tree and took out a whole shrub at the end. (if you look at our old post you can see the "before" picture.
We got the picture frames and mirror up on the wall, I think it turned out pretty good.
My most recent acquisition is this table tennis table (only rookies call it a ping pong table) hopefully it will bring us some fun. Who's got game? Bring it on.
I think this was our first official dinner at our house, I took a pic w/o Brit knowing that's why the back of her head in in the photo. She is a good cook and takes good care of me.
Yesterday (sat) I was able to go to The Bird in the morning and get a good spring session in. It was pretty warm and really sunny and the conditions were fun. I had a good time. After I went and saw Brit in the salon for a sec, then went swimming, went to the eucalyptus sauna, showered and shaved, it was nice! After that I came home and my parents came over and we did said yard work. We then all went to In n Out for dinner. It was a pretty darn good day.
Other recent happenings are; Brit and I went to my mission reunion over conference weekend. My mission pres is now an area 70 in Columbia thus is comes to Salt lake every year or two. It was great to go see him and hear him speak. I love him and he is a great man. And it was great to take my wife with me, finally!

I was also able to race the 1st race of the season at Rocky Mtn Raceway. I moved up and entered into the over 30 Pro class (yikes!) You race twice throughout the night and I took 3rd both times for 3rd overall for the night. It was pretty good and I had a good time, although I didn't leave the track until 1:15 AM Sat. morning!
I also was able to take Cole snowboarding a while back. We went to the Bird one night for some night boarding on their kiddie lift (chickidee) He did a pretty good job but there is for a sure a difference between him and Brickelle. All he wanted to do was head straight to this little jump we found and hit it. Not practice on his technique or form or anything, just the Jump. Here is a photo and a video.
The salt lake supercross is this weekend so it will be fun to go that with Brit.
