Letter from Trent

I know it’s not Wednesday, but I’ve been thinking about you a lot this morning. I’m sorry I haven’t treated you like my queen lately (for a couple years). I recognize my words and tone are not appropriate as a priesthood holder and I’m sorry. I’m sincerely going to work on changing my words and treating you like the queen and most important person in my life that you are. I love you and think about you often but don’t express my love by the way I sometimes speak to you. You are an amazing wife and mother and I feel so blessed each day to be your husband and to have four wonderful children (maybe 5?) together. They are so blessed and fortunate to have a mother like you that tries so hard and gives them so much love and attention. Thank you for being my rock and my example and for your Christlike love. I know that I have a lot of areas to work on and your constant desire to be better is motivating and uplifting to me. Thank you for being the wonderful woman that you are. I miss...

11 years

Trent and I got to do our traditional anniversary activity and that is to attend the temple and do sealings. It’s a reminder of what we promised each other when we were first married 11 years ago. I love to hear personal stories that are expressed while in the temple by those who have been around that temple for years. We told them that’s its our first time to that temple and we got to hear about its history and the little renovations that took place there in particular the chandeliers which came from the Hawaii temple. I love learning about the little facts of certain buildings especially temples. It was a great start to a great...

Anniversary in Arizona

I bought a deal for a night stay and 4 tickets to a waterpark at the Arizona Grand Resort in Pheonix. It had to be used before October and it had to fall on a Friday night and the only available night to work was our actual 11th year anniversary. We decided to take just the girls with us since we just did a trip last week alone and so we headed out and stayed with our great friends we met in Carlsbad, Buddy and Sara Haws, the first night. We stopped for dinner at Joes Farm Grill because of the reviews on Yelp and boy it did not disappoint! Yummy food and great atmosphere and outdoor seating. The next day we went and took a look at the new Gilbert LDS temple in which Buddy is supervising for his work. Gilbert is a beautiful city and this temple will surely add to it. After viewing the temple we went down the street to the SanTan mall and there we meet up with Stephany and Carter. My SIL Erynne placed her baby for adoption last November to this wonderful family and we got to see Carter! Boy he is something to look at and will be a very gorgeous boy. His eyelashes and color are amazing! That evening we got to the resort and settled in and took the girls to experience their first Thai food! Reeghan ate shrimp and loved it however Paetan was quite comfortable with her fried rice. I don’t enjoy going to the movie theaters at all but I have in this trip. The girls have been talking about “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” for quite some time. The movie ended up being my favorite movie and I can’t wait to buy it because of its message and that’s it’s a very clean show. I balled the last 15 minutes of it. Very touching and made me appreciate motherhood and realized that I take it too lightly. Saturday morning we meet up with Trent’s buddies Brian and Kevin at their Crossfit gym. They are hardcores and I’ve noticed that about most people I find who do Crossfit. It’s all they talk about and it’s like a family to them. It’s kind of serious business but what they produce is amazing with what I witnessed that morning. I wonder if San Marcos has a great one? Trent’s wanting to start it and I think it will be good for him. I’m not sure if I quite ready but we shall see I do enjoy changing up my workout routines. The waterpark ended up being not at all what I expected however with it being a resort waterpark and not for the public I guess it was fine. They had 3 slides with a height restriction of 45″ that Paetan passed up thank goodness. I guess it was good that we didn’t take Easton and Stratton. They wouldn’t have enjoyed it except for the lazy river and wave pool. Trent and I practically stayed in the lazy river the whole 3 hours we were there. That night we traveled down to Tucson to see Trent’s cousins and we stayed with Mitch & Mandy which they have girls so my kids had a blast with them. The dads took them to play soccer while Mandy and I went to the RS broadcast. When we returned we played Compatability a couples game in which you find out just how comparable you are. It was so fun and an old school game. Sunday morning we went to Aunt Teresa’s...
