|Klint & Mary's April Family News|
What a beautiful spring!
So how did you all enjoy General Conference?! Wasn't it wonderful? We had a slumber party Friday night at our friend’s house with Bryce (who is Bri’s cousin & Klint’s best friend) & his wife Beth and Scott (who is Bryce’s brother) & Tasia (who just got engaged this month) and other friends. Then we all watched Conference together Saturday morning. The talk by Elder Holland really hit me! Also Elder Oaks talk on Divorce was good (not the divorce part, but the part saying how to treat your spouse and work through problems etc.) Anyway, it was so nice to just relax with my baby and the friends! The boys went golfing in between Conference. Sunday was such a great day. After conference Klint made me fajitas then took me on a walk up in the mountains above Pleasant Grove- a good two hour walk nice view of the Timpanogas temple. What a much needed refreshing and relaxing weekend. Conference is so wonderful. I hope you were able to watch it and enjoy it and relax!
Easter was also another amazing day! I was really emotional that at church we had wonderful talks in Sacrament Meeting and then in Relief Society we had a real Spiritual lesson on the Atonement. So while Klint was cooking me our Easter Sunday dinner I re-listened to/ watched Elder Holland's conference talk on "Tongue of Angels" and I cried through it! I hit me the first time I watched, but re-watching it where I could pay attention better it really got to me and I cried. It made me realize that I need to speak better to Klint especially, and to be a more positive cheerful person. Oh what a great talk! Then Easter night we went over to Bryce’s parent’s house and watched “The Testaments” which made me cry yet again!
Klint wanted to have a ridiculous date so we went to eat at this Podunk place in Lindon called "Ma & Pa's Cafe", followed by shopping for junk at the Dollar Store, and finishing up with a bang going to NICKELCADE ha ha! We actually had lots of fun- I've never been there before. (If you haven’t heard of it it’s a big arcade in Orem with tons of arcade games/video games, skeet ball, etc but they only cost 5 cents each so you can play lots of games!) But we won 1,020 tickets, and that's after getting some stolen! So we got ourselves some fun prizes he he! But it was fun we stayed there for almost 3 hours!
We have a bunch of concerts coming up in May: Morrissey then Bjork (which we’re going to San Francisco to see), and then Deftones in June. As well as our usual “Another Statistic” concerts in Provo and such. “Another Statistic” is coming out with a new CD come June. A couple weeks ago Bryce & Klint had a couple real late nights working on a short film on “Another Statistic’s” Summer 2006 U.S. Tour for one of Bryce’s classes (final). Klint did a really good job of filming during tour and then editing. So I can’t wait for the real film, but I don’t know how long it will take since we just got all the right Apple programs to do the editing with!
Klint got back into his old hobby of fly fishing. Klint grew up going on fly fishing trips in Montana with his dad so he had all the gear. Recently Klint and his dad went a couple times; and then one Saturday while I was working I met him up Provo Canyon after work to have a picnic since he was up there fly fishing. It’s so funny to see him in all his gear. He is really knowledgeable on the subject we just never really talked about it before! I’ve just always seen his waders hanging up in the closet. Anyway, we played tennis for the first time in a long time since it finally got warm and I stopped being sick. And with my new racquet Klint gave me for Easter I actually played better! Klint has seen a rapid improvement in my game in just a few short weeks. Now I get excited to go play tennis! Other news, we went to see Klint’s sister, Kasi, run and finish the Salt Lake City Marathon on the 21st! Whoa! She did well too she ran it in approx 3 hours 40 minutes! (I never heard the official time, but she qualified for the Boston Marathon!) That’s crazy to me! I can barely run a mile let alone 26! Ha ha
Okay, so just to let you know Klint and I are doing great. We are getting used to living with each other and are more just casual. We usually just come home from work, eat dinner, and just hang out at home maybe watch a movie. But marriage is fun it’s so nice to be with your husband and just be together! I love when Klint tells me he just needs to be next to me or just hold me! It’s great, now I see why married people are so excited when others are getting married! I know, even though Bryce & Beth were only married a month before us, they were so excited for us to get married! It is fun; I love always being with my best friend! There’s not a day that goes by that he hasn’t made me laugh or even cry because I am laughing so hard! Hope all of you are doing well with many life changes and such. We love you!
