So, for the passed 2 days or so I have had a very strong feeling to go te Wes' final resting place. After debating with myself as to whether or not I was strong enough to go alone, I lost the battle and went. I worked until 4 and so I went home and worked on dishes and stuff and I kept thinking about it. Right then, Paige called. I talked to her about it, and she encouraged me to go. I put on Wesley's sweatshirt and pants that I borrowed when we went tumbling. On my way, I put in a CD that I hadn't listened to in a while. I put it on #3 and it was a song about having a big heart and serving others. Naturally I started crying like a big baby. I finally get there and I sat down next to where I THOUGHT he was. None of us really know the exact spot where he was burried but we all kinda guess. I lost all control of my emotions and just sat there and cried. It felt really good, but it was extremely hard. I talked to him for a few minutes which was nice. I know he was listening because I felt him there. I feel blessed to live so close to him. After a while of chatting with him and cying I left. I went to Target to get some things and I saw Mikey, Wes' good friend and Manager at Mimi's. We talked for a minute and that made me cry. I start looking around and a Target employee comes up to me and asks if I am finding everything ok. I look up at him and glanced at his name tag and his name was Wes. So, AGAIN I cried. I am such a cry baby! That is ok though. Well, that was my night. I took some pics of me and the view. My eyes are all red but it's all good. =)

Back in Utah...

So, now that I am back in the swing of things here in Provo, I thought I would take some pics of my life the passed couple days. I was looking outside today right after the sun went down, and it was so beautiful. The picture does not do the view justice. I wish you could all see how incredible it is up here. The other pics are just of me being a nerd. One wsa taken today when I was at my computer. I promised Rachel I would post tonight and so I thought I would take a pic of me posting! =) The other one I took last night. I was so unbelievably tired. It was almost midnight, I had just got done studying and I still had to make a cake for Marcia's birthday. I could have bought a cake, but I have no money and I think it means more when you make it yourself. Besides, I LOVE to cook and bake! =)

Next is Easter in Acton

I was pretty sick when I was in Cali so unfortunately I was not able to hold Ryan Wesley...actually the last night I was there I held him for a quick minute. He is SO perfect. I also spent time with Ivan, Mya, Zoe and Jackson. They have all grown up SO much. On Saturday Curtis and Tristan invited all of us over to have a traditional Irish meal. I had never had corned beef and cabbage before and I must say it was mmmmmm...nummers...haha =)

so it's been a while...

I guess I should back up a little bit. I have lots of pics to post and quite a few things to say. First of all, I would like to start by talking about Easter. I had such an incredible time in Cali with my family. Coming back to Utah was extremely hard, I even cried a little...ok so I cried like a baby with a dirty diaper. =) The first couple pics are of me in the car at about 3 a.m. We were about an hour from Acton and I could not sleep!
