16th Wedding Anniversary!!

Amy and I just celebrated our 16th anniversary!!! It is really hard to believe that we've been married for that long. I don't think we've changed a bit (but I'll let you be the judge). They have been a great 16 years! I am grateful every day that Amy said "yes" all those years ago. She is such an incredible wife and mom and I am a much better person with her pulling me along through this life. I look forward to the next 50 years!!

Some of you may find yourselves asking, "Are those really antelope horns hanging on Mike and Amy's bedroom wall??" and the answer to that question would be "Yes". I shot that antelope back when I was 12 or 13 and told Amy that if we are living in Wyoming that we should do as Wyomingites do. She hates them, but she is willing to put up with them until we get the basement finished.

For Easter we decided that it was about time that we made it down to Mom and Dad's new place in Idaho Falls. Even though the park wasn't open, it wasn't too bad of a drive. It took about 7 hrs or so. It was great to see Mom & Dad's BEAUTIFUL home!! I helped Dad do some finish work in the bedroom he is finishing downstairs the first day. Then I ended up getting really sick for the rest of the time there, so I just laid around and slept as much as I could. The girls at least got to go out and do some shopping. It sure was fun to just spend several days hanging out with Mom and Dad. They are so much fun and our kids couldn't ask for better grandparents. I think they love Bamma and Papa more than they love us!

Our Little Hoopster

Kaden is in his 2nd year of playing basketball here in Powell. He is really doing fantastic! I can't even begin to describe what I feel when I see the potential he has!! I wasn't really planning on coaching his team this year because I've been so busy with Eleutian, but I kind of got pulled in and it's been a lot of fun. He's "the Guy" on his team and it is so much fun to watch. Even though they don't keep score at this age, the dad's do:-), and Kaden's team has only lost one game to a really stacked team. I hope he continues to enjoy it and continues to work hard, because it could be a lot of fun to watch over the years!! Way to go Kaden!! We are really proud of you!!
