Celebrating Suzanne's Birthday in NYC!

I took my high school girlfriend, Suzanne to New York City to celebrate her birthday! We have been talking about doing this for some time and Mark just finally insisted that I should make it happen on her birthday! What a perfect way for two friends to celebrate! We had a great time shopping, touring the city and seeing the sights, reminiscing about the good old days at Tempe High school and spending time together! We got to spend time with Brett and Kimber and see their new place...it is darling! One night, we met up with another girlfriend from high school, Julie Floyd, who lives in New York City! It was so great to be all together again! Saturday was Suzanne's birthday and we went to WICKED! It was still incredibly awesome...the third time! It made me remember how grateful I am for dear friends, and the opportunity to make wonderful memories with them, and for my dear, sweet husband who cares so much about others, especially my friends...so grateful that he is someone who makes things happen! Happy Birthday, Suzanne! I love you!

One of our favorite Park City traditions~The Deer Valley Seafood Buffet!

One of our favorite things to do in Park City is go to dinner at the Deer Valley Seafood Buffet! It is truly amazing! The Crandall family joined us, along with Mariana and Melina, President Itinose's daughters and a couple of other friends! We had quite a large group so we took over the back room! While we were at dinner, President called his daughter, Mariana. When he heard that they were at dinner with our family, he asked to talk to Tyler. What a treat for him to talk to his mission President! It has been really fun for our family to get to know Mariana and Melina while they have been at BYU! And we are anxious to meet the rest of the family in June, when we go down to Brazil! It was a fun night! We all ate so much that we could hardly move! Everything tasted delicious! And we just had to take a picture with everyone in front of the fireplace...it's a Deer Valley tradition!!
