We had planned to go to the air show on base this year. We went when they had it a couple of years ago and enjoyed it. Well, we got stuck in traffic for over an hour before decided that wasn't how we wanted to spend our day. Instead we saw "Finding Dory". Stephen and I saw "Finding Nemo" 13 years ago when we were newly engaged so it was fun to take our boys to the sequel. We really enjoyed the movie too.

Before we made our way to Cord's wedding we stopped at Willow Park Zoo in Logan and had a good time looking at the animals there.

Brionne's younger brother, Cord got married the weekend after her so we made our way to Preston for his reception. I don't have a picture of the bride and groom, but here is the origami quilt that Stephen made for them.

My mom was able to come down and visit for a few days. Unfortunately, my dad had to stay home and work, but we were sure glad to see Grandma!

First off, some exciting news! Stephen has been working as a contractor on base near our place for just under two years, but he was offered a government spot and will be starting that at the end of the month. He'll actually be doing the exact same job, but with better pay and benefits. We have been praying so hard that something of this nature would happen and it has. We feel very blessed especially considering Stephen was chosen over many people who have been there much longer than him. He will have to temporarily work swing shift for a little while. We are not thrilled about that, but at least it is temporary!
On to Stephen's 35th birthday! The kids decided he needed a dragon theme so Tanner and Vance drew dragon pictures and they all helped me find a dragon to make a sign with off the internet.
The boys had free coupons to go miniature golfing so we decided to do that. We actually went miniature golfing on Stephen's 30th birthday as well!

My cousin, Brionne got married in the Logan temple. Stephen and I took the opportunity to go to Logan and celebrate his birthday a little before heading to her luncheon and reception while his parents watched our kids.
We didn't attend the sealing, but we did drive around the temple grounds. It reminded me of Rose's wedding day since she was sealed to Steven there a few years ago.
I'm not sure why this picture won't rotate the correct way, but Stephen has been making these beautiful origami quilts for weddings lately. I love each of them. We try to use their wedding colors when we can. It is a fun, unique gift. I hope the newlyweds always enjoy this gift.
