In the last week or so...

We have been doing a lot of things here in the free category. This is Zenock and Ammon on the free tram from the Mirage to Treasure Island. We never actually got off the tram, just rode it back and forth a couple times. Kids loved it.
This is the free outdoor volcano at Mirage...before
Playing at McLoud Park
The kids favorite slide. This is Izabella and Gabriella, I babysit them during the week.
My family came to visit during president's day weekend. We took them to Hoover fun! This is Kalina and Abby with Zz on the Arizona side
My dad and Zz in Arizona
And Arizona side of Hoover Dam
Ammon, my mom, Abby, and Kalina in the visitor's center
And one of my favorite Vegas attractions, the Belagio fountains. We saw those Sunday fact 3 shows in a row. It was worth the wait. I love that there are free things like this to do here. For me it never gets old. I am so glad my parents and sisters could come see us. We had so much fun, and I can't wait until next time!!

Weekend events

Yesterday we had a stake Relief Society service project. We made blankets for the local Project Linus chapter who takes blankets to crisis centers, hospitals, police and fire departments to help kids and families. Project Linus is a national organizaiton and over the last month they have sent 30,000 blankets to Haiti. I tied a baby blanket and finished the ends on a fleece one. There were tons of people there! I just wish I knew more than just my family who was there...I am still shy I guess!

Last night we went to a ward activity of sorts. It's called the dinner party, and they ask for voluteers to host dinner in their home. We went to Libbie Jones's (I think that's her last name) home with 4 other couples: the 1st counselor in bishopric & his wife the RS pres, and 2 other couples near our age. It was really fun...and I think we have made some great friendships already!!

When we came home Zenock was crying hysterically because he wanted mommy. It took him forever to calm down, then he fell asleep in the car taking Celeste home. He feels so yucky, and I know it's viral, so there's nothing I can do for him but load up the humidifier, vicks him like crazy and give him umka. And to top that, he had a fever all night so he was in our bed most of the least until he had been awake for a while from 4-5am and I convinced him to go to his bed so I could sleep. And then when he woke us up at 8 he was back in our bed! Brady feels crappy too, and Ammon has a cold as well. But he has more energy than everyone combined so he wants to go to church with me and sit on the front row! I am still debating if I will let him go to church, so I might end up going by myself today. I hope everyone is better in the next few days...being sick is the pits!!

A chance

Tomorrow I have my first interview since last August, for a job here in Nevada. It's with a very large insurance company, United Healthcare. Over the last 3 weeks I have applied for 6 jobs there...and I got a callback!! Wish me luck!!!
