New York! New York!

Actually, I guess a more accurate title would be Connecticut! Connecticut! I spent the most of the last week there, and a little time in New York! New York!

My brother Adam's oldest child turned 8! So, my parents brought my two nieces from Texas and we all celebrated because my sweet neice Haley got baptized. And, I had a blast.

On Sunday Haley told me to wear my prettiest dress so that maybe I would meet someone at church that would marry me. Ha ha ha... I wish I was kidding. I asked her if there were any guys in her ward to date. She said there were two (2) missionaries and she was pretty sure neither of them were married. I told her missionaries couldn't date. She told me one of them was about to be done. Ha ha ha! Can you imagine!?! Bless her heart!

My sister-in-law made the cutest cake, a funfetti cake with polka dots. And, there were party hats. It was legit! My niece got a Wii game called Sing It! And, I am pretty sure I would rather die than listen to Aly and AJ sing "Like Whoa" again, Or ANYTHING from High School Musical or Cheetah Girls.

We had a lot of fun. There was swimming, a lot of swimming! And, we had a "fashion show", if it could be called that!
I love my family! I absolutely love them. The whole bunch of them make me smile! They are by far the best part of me!

And, I love New York! The Spring weather was perfect!

What a fabulous weekend! I am already ready to go back!
