Happy Birthday!!!

We celebrated Aaron's Birthday with a BBQ at my parents house on the Sunday before his Birthday. I got Aaron his favorite cake from Cold Stone! We had such a great weekend on Saturday we went to the movies and saw Date Night which we was so funny. We had the whole theatre to ourselves and could not stop laughing.

The boys grilling the hamburgers in the backyard.

The girls making the rest of the meal indoors.
I had my Aunt Nancy made a quilt for Aaron and she did such an amazing job. I had saved t-shirts from concerts we attended or musician he loves. He absolutely loved it and thought it was a great gift. (Notice there is a lot of shirts from Jack Johnson, he is our favorite!)

Funny Story, my mom used this sack that had Aaron's gift in it that was from 10 years ago when my brother had wrapped the worst present I ever received. My mom kept the sack and reused it all these years. I'm sure you are wondering what the gift was I got....
My brother thinking I was an angry teenager made me a pickle extractor so I could remove a "pickle from my butt" that was causing me to be so grumpy. He though it was a cleaver idea I still think it was the worst present I have EVER received. But it was pretty funny to see the note he had wrote me and Aaron happen to notice the card that was 10 Years old. haha!

My family got Aaron a case for his laptop and a $50 gift card to Barnes and Noble.

What Makes a Pregnant Women Happy?

Aaron was kind enough to stop by the gas station on his way home to pick me up the last 4 chocodiles (notice I only took a picture of 3). He told the guy working there "This will make my pregnant wife very happy"

U of U Graduate 2010

Aaron graduated from the University of Utah on Friday and we could not be more excited! It has been a long journey with Aaron working full time and going to school at night. It has been very busy at times but we are very grateful that he has stuck with it and finished. I'm very proud of my husband and excited for his next accomplishments in life.

The Robins Family
I gave Aaron a watch for his Graduation gift!
Cute Grandma Hardy came to Aaron's Graduation and spent the whole day with us.

Some little mischievous fingers got a hold of my camera when I was not looking
Even though my mom was up the night before with the stomach flu and my dad was in the ER because he had a metal sliver in his thumb that he had to get removed they were able to make it.
I'm so proud of him!!!!
Let the Party begin...
I had a party for Aaron to celebrate his hard work and accomplishments
I had seen these Jones soda's and thought there were so cute so I ordered them for Aaron. You could personalize it with his picture and I let Aaron pick a quote that you could put on the back of it which said....
"Give a man a match and he'll be warm for a minute but set him on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life"

My Uncle Matt did the St George IronMan last Saturday and his support team was right there with him. He did an amazing job and we are so proud of him. Matt did his IronMan in less the 14 hours and made his goal. We were right there with him the whole day starting at 3:30 am until 10:00 pm that night. It was a long and fun filled day.

This was his number they spray paint on 1090

This is their age they put on the back of all the athletes.

A pile of stuff left over from the athletes at the start line.

The Swim took place at Sand Hollow. The girls waiting for Matt to complete the 2.4 mile Swim and to start his bike ride!

Matt on his way up the hill at the end of his 112 mile bike ride and his Support Team IRONMATT very happy waiting for him!!!

He looked so good, He rocks at the bike!

Matt Just starting the Marathon at mile 2.5 he looked really good at this point!

This is at mile 16 and my mom started running with him giving words of encouragement. He had hit the wall and was struggling but after seeing family he kicked it in gear and finished strong!

I'm so lucky to have an awesome sister and mom. We had a great weekend!!!
