Grandpa Wilson

Life is full of high's and low's. I have really experienced this in the last couple of weeks. Aiden and I left for Utah once again on the 19th of Sept for my Grandpa Wilson's funeral. I am so glad I was able to go and spend time with my family and say goodbye to my Grandpa. I really loved hearing about his life and seeing old pictures of him. He was such a humble man, he never wanted any sort of spotlight on himself, including at his own funeral. He actually said that, isn't that amazingly ironic?

I will miss my Grandpa so much. I have so many great memories of him. I will miss him teasing me, his great advice and always telling me, "How keen I am." He was so stubborn and smart and always emphasized getting an education. We always knew what he was thinking and he supported me in everything I did. Here are some great pictures of him.

After I got back on Wednesday, we had a pretty relaxing weekend. Our anniversary was on Friday, so we got a babysitter and went to the melting pot. Sooo delicious. It was so nice to not be in a hurry and to get to enjoy the experience. I can't believe it has been 3 years, it feels like we just got married. It was so fun to spend some quality alone time with Trent and remember why we actually got married. I love that guy.

We got some things done around the house on Sat, went and played at the park, and then I went to the relief society broadcast. Today we found out that Lori had a layover at DFW! I love it when that happens. So we took some lunch and hung out with her. Trent let me have a fantastic nap and then we went to our friend, Kaitlin's, birthday party. It was a great weekend. Here are some pictures of Aiden, after he fell asleep. He was so tired he rolled over when I was changing his diaper and stuck his butt up in the air.

Like father, like son

What's Happening

We are alive.  I have a lot to catch up on and it is a little overwhelming.  I was gone for a month from July to August working volleyball camps and spending time with family in Arizona and Utah.  While I was gone, Trent had to move apartment's without me.  Our friends helped us a ton, we couldn't have done it without them.  So when I got back I needed to finish moving in and let's just say it has taken me a long time to get everything done.  Our balcony including our outside storage closet was falling apart, so we waited for a month for our management to get that done.  Meanwhile all our stuff was in our front room.  I am just glad our apt is put back together again.  

We had a great weekend.  On Thursday Trent's cousin, Travis, came into town for the BYU game.  We had a great time with him.  On Friday night we got some delicious barbeque and then went to Top Golf in Dallas, this place was really fun.  All the balls have computer chips in them so your ball is tracked and you get points depending on where you hit the ball.  
Sat we went to the park and then of course to the BYU football game.  It was so amazing.  First of all the stadium is unreal.  My mouth dropped when I walked in.  I will include pics later in this post.  The tv is so large you really can't not look at it.  I would forget I could just look at the field to see the play.  The game was amazing, we are so glad we could be there.  We got super into it and I was yelling at the ref's, OU fans, and the team.  It was such a great game and best of all, we WON!

It is huge!

We randomly saw Josh and Brooke Allen, so good to see you guys!

The teams lining up to shake hands, notice the sea of Red.  Tons of OU fans

I don't like this picture, but you can see how big the t.v. is in the background

We won!

Sunday was pretty standard, went to Church, took a nap, ate dinner and then we hung out and I made a killer peach cobbler for dessert.  Monday we went to watch the Bingham vs. Trinity high school football game that was also at the Cowboys Stadium.  It was fun to be there again.  Aiden was mesmerized by the screen and eventually passed out and slept through the whole game.  We want to thank Travis for such a fun weekend, we are so glad we could go to the game!
