We took the whole family out to watch the Diamondbacks play and it was so much fun! We sat in the bleacher seats, and you would think they would be horrible seats because it is so far away from the batter, however, they were AWESOME and every time we go, we sit in the bleacher seats now. You feel so much more part of the game sitting so close to the players, plus every time they hit a home run, you have the chance to catch the ball. The game we were at, there were two home runs in our section, but we didn't get them. It was Josh's first ever professional baseball game he went to. He's sold....he loves it now. So much better than watching it on TV! The crowd really gets into it in the bleacher seats too. VERY fun family activity!! :-)

Hailey graduated from 8th grade in May. She's my baby and so I am entering into a new phase of my life - no more kids in elementary school. Weird feeling! I'm getting old!! They had it at 9:00 AM on a Wednesday. Seriously? Who does that?! So, everyone who wanted to attend had to take off work. They said it was because some kids had siblings at the high school graduating the same day. Hmmm....I wonder why they couldn't hold it the day earlier then?
Our stake was asked to host the Spring Formal (aka "Mormon Prom" again this year). It's a ton of work, but the kids really enjoy it. We started at 7:00 AM and got home around 3:00 AM after we cleaned up. The theme this year was "A Time To Remember" and we had clocks everywhere. I also was able to find this awesome bridge on Craigslist that was actually part of a set for plays at some church in north Phoenix. It's EXTREMELY heavy but looked amazing. The kids wanted their pictures taken on it so one of the photographers moved his photo shoot location over to the bridge to take pictures. Fun evening. There were 1,148 kids who showed up...a new record!
