Hunger Games Hangover

Last night was THE night...
the long awaited and much anticipated release of

Bennett went to the 7pm showing, Cassidy to the 8pm,
and Haley to the midnight showing.
Clark opted to stay home and sleep,
but the rest of us are feeling the effects of a later than usual night.

We had a great response to our T-shirts!  We sold!
Thanks to all those who bought them and wore them!

 Cassidy and Sydney...Katniss wanna-be's!

Katie, Cassidy and Ally

They all had a great time in packed theatres with their friends
and LOVED the movie!

My plan is to see it in a couple of weeks at the I-pic!
Comfortably relaxed in my reclining chair and popcorn on demand!

Flag Football Championship

Bennett played flag football on the Poston 8th grade competitive team.
About half way thru the season, the coach,
(who happens to be the Mountain View Head Varsity Coach),
realized Bennett has a great arm and can really throw the ball.
It didn't take long until Bennett was playing quarterback.

At first, very timid and nervous, we watched Bennett
gain the confidence that comes with experience.
It was really amazing to watch him progress throughout the season.
He was awesome and Curt and I were more than impressed!

We played Taylor for the City Championship,
 but ended up losing in a nail-biting game.

Bennett has assured us that he is going to swim, not play football, at Mountain View.
I told him that Coach D might drag him out of the deep end
when he doesn't seem at football practice this spring!

Great season, Bennett!  We are proud of you and look forward to those swim meets!

Sky Harbor Picnic

Our Boise cousins, enroute to their Spring Break destination,
 had a three hour layover in Phoenix yesterday.
Lucky for us, it was early release for some of the kids
and we made it a lunch date in the middle of Termnal 4.
Thanks Grandpa and Grandma for the yummy Tia Rosa's burritos!

Echo's First Haircut

Bennett had been reminding harrassing me to make an appointment for Echo to be groomed.
I kept reminding repeating that he was lucky to even have a dog.
 I was beaten down once again and the appointment was made.


I must admit, he does look and smell so much better!

I tease Bennett that in my next life I want to come back as one of his animals.

There is no messing around with THIS boy and HIS dog!

Toro Hoops

The seasons these days are measured not by Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall,
but, rather by the sports seasons:  Basketball, Track, Swimming, Football
and basketball season has officially ended.

Thanks to our awesome neighbor Robert Sirrine for capturing these photos.
He is the photographer I wish I was.
Check out his website for more images of MV sports.

Love watching this guy play!
