A fun night of bowling!

 When we were in Utah, Easton and Daysha came over for dinner.  It was so much fun to have almost the whole family together (we were missing Tannon, who is on a mission, and Rick, who was still in Chicago).  Daysha and Easton have been living apart since they got married.  Easton has a football scholarship at SUU and Daysha is an MDT major at BYU until the end of April.  They live 3.5 hours apart, and only see each other on occasional weekends.  I was so glad Easton was able to come up for one of the weekends that we were there.  Anyway, they weren't going to be able to make it to Daci's birthday party the next weekend, so they gave her their birthday present a week early.  She was SOOOO excited to be getting a present!  She kept throwing her hands in the air and saying, "Hooray!!" (see picture above).  They gave her the movie Shark Tale, stickers, and some candy.  She was in HEAVEN!  Anyway, after dinner, Easton and Daysha were going to go on a date bowling.  They decided to invite all of us along!  I'm so glad they were unselfish and asked us to go because we all had a BLAST!!!! It was Daci's first time bowling and it is definitely something we will do again and again with her.  She just loved it!

I just loved Daci's cute little bowling shoes!

So excited to be there!

Don't I have incredible form? :-P

We got Daci the little ramp thingy and she just loved pushing the ball off of it. Then she would just wait in anticipation to see if the pins knocked over.

She had a hard time understanding that she had to wait her turn to go again.  After her turn I would take her back to my dad because she kept trying to run out to the lane again.  While he held her she would say, "My turn, Papa!"

Watching as the ball rolled down the lane

clapping when the balls hit the pins. She would say "Knocked over!", just like Gru does in Despicable Me :)

In other news....I have to give a shout-out to Daysha.  She auditioned for the productions Grease and Little Mermaid down at Tuacahn in St. George.  They went to many major cities like Los Angeles, New York and Vegas to find talented performers for the roles and over a thousand people auditioned. Daysha was offered the role of Cha-Cha in Grease and one of the sister princess/mermaids in Little Mermaid! Two huge roles! I am so proud of her! Not too shabby for her first post-college audition, eh? Congrats Daysh!

YOur daughter is just precious! And congrats to your sis-in-law! That's really awesome! My in-laws always go to those shows when they stay at their house in St. George. That would be rough being newlyweds and not being able to see each other very often.
