The night we got there we went and had dinner with 10 cheerleaders from my very first year of coaching. They are all grown up and graduated now, which makes me feel super old since the year I coached them was their first year in high school, but it was sooooooooooooooo much fun! They have all grown up so much and have their own awesome lives! They are getting married, going to school, have legit jobs, one is a cheer coach herself, and they are just all so awesome. I just love being coach! Most of these girls I actually still keep in touch with quite frequently. This particular group of girls taught me so much and really helped me develop into the coach I am today. I just love them to death! Plus some of them got to meet Ani for the first time, not the best first impression, which was cool because this is the group of girls who use to set me up with their teachers, uncles, brothers, than were there when I started dating Spencer, then when we got engaged, and then they came to our reception, and then they were there when I found out I was pregnant. We had a great mini reunion!
2010 (our very first game)
NOW!!! Obsessed with them! They are AWESOME!
Me and my captains in 2011 and in 2013!
Spencer with his Sisters Tami and April
Ani loves her butterfly that her Aunt Tami got for her for her birthday!!!
Ani did not appreciate Aunt Tami holding her hand. Haha! Such a sass!
Ani loving Uncle Rob!
This child has her mother's mouth!
Playing with cousin Chloe!
How cute is this picture???? Spencer is such a good uncle! These boys are so adorable!!!
Of course we had to hit up Ikea. You cannot go to Salt Lake and not go to Ikea. LOVE IT! We found this amazing rug that matches our living room perfectly and best part... only $20!!!! Who sells huge gorgeous rugs for only $20? Such a great deal! Ani saw this Panda bear and would not put it down! Spencer especially loves this because he had a Panda when he was younger that he loved to death. She is so much like her Dad it's crazy! When ever she is tired, this Panda is her favorite thing now. And of course... we had to get napkins. There is something about Ikea's napkins. They are just great! I don't know many people who are passionate enough about their napkins to drive 3 1/2 hours just to buy their napkins... but I am just that passionate! We got frozen yogurt, which I was really excited about, but quickly that excitement turned into disappointment. It tasted awful! Ani liked it, but woof!
This is genius! I absolutely LOVE the idea of a play kitchen in the real kitchen! So doing this in my house someday!
Don't worry... Aniston is sitting in the chair! Haha!
Good old Honest Abe!
Is it awful that this picture makes me laugh? She was so upset about this! Cutest face ever!
Ani absolutely loved the animals, she was even making animal noises when she saw them, but when we got up close, she was not so happy about that...
Helping Dad at the shooting gallery.
First of all we are OBSESSED with Duck Dynasty, second of all Ani's face! She is so Happy, Happy, Happy!
She is terrified!
Ani with the skunks! This child seriously puts up with so much from me just to take pictures! What a good sport!
Driving with Dad!
Loving the fish!
Quick sidenote... Spencer and I have decided that if we ever have twin boys we are going to name them Clark Kent (Kent is Spencer's middle name) and Bruce Wayne. Awesome right? Plus then my children's names would go A,B,C. The OCD person trapped inside me loves that!
They would be the COOLEST kids ever!
The outlet mall. Look at those mountains!
IT WAS HOT!
First of all the cute outfit for $3 (This picture does not even come close to doing it justice), and then the hat! Haha!
She hasn't quite figured out the straw thing... It's super cute, but F.A.I.L.
Daddy testing his I.Q.
She was being her usual sassy self and she did not want to hear what we had to say...
Not listening and yelling back... I can't wait for the teenage years!
There are no words for this picture! Haha!
Smelling the pickle before eating it...
She is hilarious! I always wonder what babies are thinking???? Any thoughts as to what Ani Kate is thinking in this picture?
We survived lots of traffic this weekend... We sat through car accidents...
And soooooooooooooo much construction!
It was a quick trip but I feel like we got so much down! We have been having such a fun past couple of weeks and I never want it to end!
