Basketball, babies & such

Matt's in town right now! He only has a short spring break inbetween track meets in Arizona, but I'll take what I can get. The main purpose of the trip, aside from spending some quality time together, is to take our engagement pictures tomorrow. Since this is our one shot, the weather is mildly unfortunate. Here's hoping Target carries cute umbrellas. Anyway, Matt flew in Sunday and we went straight up to Kaysville, where we got to hang out with these cute kids:

Our newest niece, Annsli Claire, was born on St. Patricks Day and is such a beautiful baby. I'm lucky to be inheriting so many adorable nieces and nephews through Matt's side. We can't wait to add our own to that mix :-) From there, we headed over to Dave & Monica's to attend the Draper Temple dedication and spend the evening with them. Matt didn't get to come to Utah for the open house, so it was neat to share the dedication with him.

That would be my family at the Draper Temple Open House, if you couldn't tell.

And in other news... just thought I'd give a quick update on my pretty little ESPN bracket which, despite a less-than-perfect Day 2 (seriously, Cleveland State?), is still in the 99.4 percentile in the country and has every single one of my Elite Eight picks playing in the Sweet Sixteen. I remember when I used to be in the 99th percentile on all those standardized tests in school and let me tell you, this is way cooler :-). Go Tigers.

Matt and Ashley--
My mom said she saw you at the play in Brigham and said it was soooo good to see you, Matt, and meet you, Ashley! I wish I could have been there! It's been forever, Matt. So sad!!!! I will for sure plan on the wedding, so count me in!:)
