I did it!

On May 6, 2010 I graduated from the University of Utah with a Master's degree in Nursing. I will be taking boards soon to be a Family Nurse Practitioner. I can't tell you how much this day meant to me. This day seemed so far away and the goal impossible at times to achieve.

I get teary eyed thinking of all the hard work the last 7 semesters have been. Although, I know my children will probably not remember this too much (I hope!), the ache I have carried from being away from them will not leave my heart anytime soon.

I'm so glad I'm done!!

Where's the baby?

Hannah had to sleep with "all" of her babies!

Easter at Nana's

Nana always makes a traditional Easter dinner with the best turkey ever (voted by Carson and Cam!) Of course an Egg hunt is also in order!

The hunt is a bit more competitive here for the bigger boys! Carson loves it!

Cousins and best buddies-holding hands while eating!
