Since Eric graduated we let him pick where he wanted to go for Summer vacation. Eric loves history so he wanted to got to Washington DC. Since none of us (except for Mike had been to the East Coast we decided we'd make a big trip out of it. We visited New York City, Boston and DC.

Eric turned 18 on March 30th. We spent the day watching Eric play soccer against Tooele. It was a great 6-0 win for Stansbury. Eric's friend Curtis came from West Valley to watch him and Katy's friend Marissa came too. It meant a lot to him to have them there. On Saturday we through a surprise party for him. We took him to Texas Road House for dinner and when he got home his friends were there. I think he was mostly surprised. Then on Sunday we had Grandma Lynn and our good friends the Hughes' over for dinner. It was a weekend of fun celebrating Eric. We are so blessed to have him in our family. He keeps us laughing and is just a nice young man. I love you Eric!

We have another Tbird in our house. Eric has decided to go to Southern Utah University just like his sister. It was a hard decision, but I think he's glad it's over with. As many of you know a lot of my family lives in Cedar City so it's comforting to know he has them while he's away from home. I can't believe that my baby is going to College in the Fall. Time goes by too quickly. I will miss Eric so much, but I'm excited for the adventures that College brings.

I love Valentines Day. It is one of my favorite holidays. I love having an excuse to let my family know I love them. I love to make a yummy candlelight dinner for the fam. A few years back I started making hearts and writing things I love about the kids on them and then decorate their doors. The first year Katy was away at College I sent my Sister hearts for Katy and had her decorate her apartment door. I don't know if she liked it or was too embarrassed. I don't think Eric would appreciate me doing that next year for him. So as I decorated his door this year I got a little sentimental realizing that this is probably my final year of taping hearts on my kids doors. Don't worry kids I will find other ways to celebrate that special day.

A couple of weekends ago I headed to Cedar City for a little girl time with my Katy. We headed to St. George for some shopping and food. I love shopping with Katy she doesn't get bored like the boys do. We ate lunch at a cute little cupcake shop....yummy! I had time to visit with my Grandma while I was there. I cherish my time with her. Katy and I had a great time talking about what girls talk about and just being together. I am so proud of my all grown up daughter. Love you Katy Keil!

Yesterday Mike headed to New Mexico for a business trip, which left me and Eric home together. Eric had to work until 6. When he got home we had pizza and watched football together. Now anyone that knows me, knows I don't really love football until it gets to the end of the season. Yesterday I watched football all day. Eric was completely shocked that I would spend the day watching a sport I don't really enjoy. The last game of the day was the 49ers. I have liked the 49ers ever since Steve Young was on the team (I have a tiny crush on him) so I had to watch. Unfortunately the 49ers lost....bummer. It was a great night of just hanging out with Eric. This morning when Eric was leaving for school he said Mom that was really fun hanging out with you last night. Now that's what every Mom loves to hear. Such a simple thing just spending time doing something he enjoys. I love being a Mom!
