Dear Tayler,

Congratulation's Graduate! I first want to say how proud I am of you. You have worked so hard these past four years to be an exceptional student, and an incredible athlete. It's amazing watching you grow up and turn into this beautiful young woman. I always thought you would be just like me...was I wrong or what? I don't think we could be more opposite if we tried. I pray that you stay independent, a leader, strong willed, dedicated, and beautiful on the inside as you are you out, as these are the things that I admire most about you. I know that you will be successful in everything you do. This past year we have had a lot of sadness, heartache, and disappointments in our lives, and now our family is changed forever. I will always be here for you...I am and will always remain your friend, your big sis, I am your biggest fan. I love you more than anything.

Love Always,

Try to keep busy...

Thursday Kevin and his Dad flew to Ohio to visit with family and he doesn't get home till Monday evening...So I knew I needed to keep myself really busy so I didn't just sit around and wait for Monday to come. Friday and Saturday my Mom, and her friends Aurora and Annette, and I did a girls weekend at the J W Marriott at Desert Ridge. We had so much fun relaxing by the amazing pool...and of course shopping! Sunday, my mom and I headed up to Roosevelt Lake. Waiting for us was my Dad and my sisters!!! Family fun at the lake!

Having fun in the sun!

I found out something new about my mom this weekend...She rocks at knee boarding! She just went out there got up the first try, and then started doing 360's!!! She was spinning and jumping all over the place...and I couldn't even get up!!! haha

Captain Dad

Tayler and I were giving my Dad a hard time saying he couldn't knock us off the tube...BAD IDEA! He was whipping us around like CRAZY! I flew so high out of that tube. I think I did a flip in the air and 2 more under the water...I learned my lesson, lol.

Alex taking a little break

Mike, Annette, and Alex having fun. It was so nice to spend time with my family. They got me through my weekend without Kevin, I guess that is what family is for...Now I just have to get through tonight!!!
