You call this work?

Whoever said work isn't fun? I'm in St. George right now on a trip that we are hosting for the station. We've chartered a bus and brought a group of sponsors and donors down to see a play at the Tuacahn last night (Les Mis) and then two plays at the Shakespearean Festival today. Our schedule is pretty jam-packed but I did manage to get my workout in this morning and now I'm off to check out the outlet mall and then hopefully a little bit of time at the pool before we're back on the bus. Everyone seems to be having a good time and we are already making plans for our event next year. If you've never had the chance to go to a performance at the Tuacahn or the Shakespearean Festival, you are definitely missing out!

Gotta go as I really should get back to "work."

Camping--Tevaga Style!

The kids and I flew back in from Chicago late Friday night. Although we were tired from the trip in, Norm decided it would be a good weekend to go camping. Now before you start thinking "The Tevaga's don't really strike me as the camping type..." WE'RE NOT! So we packed the car and headed up to Cherry Hill. They have a water park, pool, miniature golf course, snack bar and store. THIS is our type of camping.

It was a quick trip--and I'm sure the Kobe and Tehani would've stayed up there for a whole week if we would let them--but we did have a fun time. The kids are old enough now that they will remember this excursion (the last time we went to Cherry Hill they were both in diapers.)

I'm sure they will be harassing us to go back sometime soon!

Champagne anyone?

No, I haven't taken up drinking. But the kids and I have spent the past few days in Champaign, IL (home of the University of Illinois) to visit my sister. Cynthia has only lived there for a year or so and this was actually my first time visiting. I was mainly just excited to be someplace where it wasn't raining (a whole strait week of rain in Chicago is not my idea of fun!) Anyway, the kids and I all went home with a tan (going to the pool everyday will do that) but it was also fun to eat at some yummy restaurants, watch Kung Fu Panda at the theatre, and just hang out with Cynthia.

I just hope my sister has recovered from our visit--especially since the kids will be back in Champaign in about a month or so (whenever Cynthia gets around to having her baby!)

Cynthia's "Baby Mama" weekend

My sister Cynthia was in town for a few days so I decided it was the perfect time to throw her a baby shower while she was in Utah. I really wanted to do something different for the shower so I invited all of her teacher pals from Spanish Fork along with other friends and family and we started out the party by watching the "Baby Mama" movie at the mall.

Afterwards we headed back to my hosue for lunch and dessert. Cynthia (and baby Charlotte) made out like bandits! In addition to lots of cute clothes and baby gear, Cynthia also got most of the lady bug themed stuff for the baby's room. And leave it to Crazy J (aka our mom) to get the mommy-to-be the largest thing on the Target registry so Cynthia would have absolutely no way to get the high chair home on the airplane. Good thing for Target returns and giftcards!! Even with that Cynthia's bags were full when she boarded her plane this morning.

Happy Baby Mama Party Cynthia!!
