Spring Break

We had so much fun this Spring Break. We went to Escondido, California. Jennifer, Hadley, Griffin, and Lincoln met us there. We have some more great pictures to post. 

We had such a great time with Chester and katie. I haven't gotten the last night of pictures off our camera but I will post them later It was one one of the best nights ever. It was spent with our friend Evelyne and her dad Jimmy, who is from Ireland. I can't wait to write all about it.

Our last shindy for a while

Last month we had a little scare with my health. I had a few tests ran and they came back with some troubling results. With out giving to much info, I needed surgery to find out more of what was going on with me. Of course I was worried and started thinking the worst. I don't know how Kade stayed as patient as he did. He was so cute and helpful. 
There were so much love and prayers put out in my behalf. Anyway, the surgery went great and things weren't as the doctor thought. I still remember waking up and hearing the news. I was so happy. My mom, Aunt Jaynie, and Kade were there. That was a wonderful day and I don't want to take things for granted ever again. (right before the surgery)

Kade and I were planning to go on this great trip before we found out there was anything wrong. The trip was obviously put on hold until we found out all was well. 
We decided that this would be our last big get away for awhile. We had so much fun throwing things together last minute. We had some friends meeting us from Utah. We thought they would have to go on with out us. Lucky for us, we all made the trip. It was Awesome!

Super Bowl 2009

Despite the loss, we had a blast at Grandma Barney's watching the Super Bowl. Even though we tend to get rowdy, this is one of our favorite places to be. We are glad Derec survived his weekend with us. We loved spending time with him too.

January 17, 2009

What a great morning. John flew Hunter, Kade, and me to Sedona for breakfast. We had so much fun. Hunter said I am not allowed next time because they couldn't do more daring things with me in the plane. I guess I am a wimp. Sorry Hunter. He loved it though and we can't wait until Kade gets his license. I know Kade is anxious. He'll be an awesome pilot too.

T. Dennis Barney February 8, 1946-January 5, 2008

So much has happened over the past few months. Life has been a whirlwind. I will briefly write about the most important things. I am anxious to get caught up. Most recently was the unexpected passing of my Dad, T. Dennis Barney on January 5, 2009.  My Dad was the most loving and kind person you'd ever meet. He made everyone feel like they were his best friend. He was genuine and kind and would do whatever he could to help anyone in need. I am so grateful for my Dad. He always made me feel like I was important. He'd drop anything just to make sure we were happy. Family was his number one priority and we knew it. My Dad was faithful and loved to serve others. He loved our Savior and he did everything in his life to live righteously. He has been such a great example to me on how to be. We have all been touched by his life and he has left a great legacy to follow.

What a beautiful day this was. Everything went so well. Kade and I were so excited to finally have our families together. 
They all got along great. My family loved Kades family instantly. Being in the temple together with all our loved ones was amazing. I'm so grateful for Kade. I am grateful to him for his testimony and love of the gospel. He is a wonderful husband and I can't wait to spend eternity with him.

I am attaching the link for the wedding pictures. There are tons of great shots of everyone. I only have the ones family members have given me so my selection is small thus far.
