Daddy's Weekend with Adyson

Last weekend Hailey took a long needed short break to go visit some of her friends from school. I had the wonderful experience of staying at home with Adyson and man did WE HAVE A BLAST! She is such a wonderful baby. We took walks, ate junk food (not much), bought her a new walker and even stayed up late. I am so amazed at how much I love my little baby Ady and it is crazy how much she is growing every single day. It is good to have Hailey back with us now, but I really did enjoy taking care of Ady all by myself.

Hailey and Ady go to California with Smoots

Hailey and Adyson had a wonderful time last week in Palo Alto, California. Eric was not able to go unfortunately due to work but promises to make the next Smoot trip for sure! The girls (Hailey and Ady) had a blast doing all sorts of fun stuff with the Smoots. They went into San Francisco one day, went to the beach, went to the salt water aquarium (like a zoo of fish), ate at every tasty restaraunt you can name and just simply had lots of fun. They were gone from Saturday the 8th to Thursday the 13th. Go see some of the awesome times they had in the gallery. To tell you the truth I didn’t think I would have that hard of a time without my girls but I missed them a ton as I realized how long they would be gone as I was walking to church ALONE Sunday morning. Needless to say they are back now and I cannot get enought of them. Today is Saturday the 15th and Hailey just put Ady down for a morning nap. Later today we are goint to go get lunch and run some errands. While we are out we are going to take Ady to play at Cabelas. This is a a large sportsman and hunting store that is located in Utah and there are lots of live fish swimming around and supposedly KIDS love it. We will go see if so. Hailey is really excited to be making a Herb Box for our back patio this spring/summer so we are also going to go get some supplies to do that today. Talk to you all later.

Breanna Smoot is Baptized

On April 8, 2006 Breanna Smoot was baptised a member or the Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter Day Saints. Her older brother Spencer performed the baptism and for all those that were not in attendance; this was a wonderful and spiritual experience! Breanna looked very beautiful and pure in her white dress. There are some pictures of this great day in our gallery. We are very proud of your decision Breanna.

Austin Smoot Wins Districts

Well the SMOOT family continues to dominate in the sport of WRESTLING. Austin Smoot, Haileys youngest (but probably toughest!) brother JUST WON THE DISTRICT WRESTLING TOURNAMENT. For ninth graders in Utah this is the equivalent of having won the STATE toruney. We are really excited to see how well Austin does next year in High School. He has a great legacy to carry on as both his older brothers were dominant wrestlers in high school. Oh and by the way, Austin MAN HANDLED the kid he wrestled in the final match. I believe the score was 13 to 3. Hey Austin did you even break a sweat? Way to go!

St. George Memories

This past weekend Hailey, Adyson, Grandma Sue Kandell and I all drove to St George, Utah with a Uhaul full of stuff and spent the weekend setting up and decorating our new home. We are so excited to have this home and can’t wait to begin building many memories for our family down there. The weather was soooo… nice. We built beds, set up chairs, couches and hung pictures. We got to see some long time friends of Sue and Eric’s from years ago in Boca Raton Florida. The Lamoreaux family were good friends of Eric’s grandma Gladys and through all his years visiting his Grandma in Florida, Eric too became good friends with them. Well believe it or not, they have lived in St George for the past 6 yrs and only live about 1 mile or so from our new home! The house is very comfortable and we cant wait to start spending many memorable family weekend get-a-ways down there.
