The main reason I came to Utah was to see my sister Shannon's graduation. She just graduated from Westminister with her degree in nursing and already has a job at Primary Children's Medical Center. The ceremony was held at a Presbyterian Church in downtown Salt Lake.

I've been in Utah for the past two weeks with my family while Dane studies for his comprehensive exams back in Tucson. I've had a lot of fun with my parents, and siblings. We went to Wheeler Farm, the Dinosaur Museum, Hogle Zoo, hiking, shopping, out to eat, and etc. It has been nice not to have the normal household responsibilties and to be surrounded by loved ones.

Let's go fly a kite

We hopped on our bikes and went to Brandie Fenton park, where Aria enjoyed playing around with the water cannon.

Later at McCormick park, we flew Aria's princess kite for the 1st time. Aria spent more time happily dancing around the kite than actually flying it, but we all had fun.

Here's Aria alone at the helm

Even Zade got in on the action

Zade's Daily Quest

Every day, Zade crawls into Aria's room, gets past enemy forces, lunges onto her bed and hunts for the plug. Yes, his mission is to unplug the lamp that illuminates her room. Once he's accomplished this, he commences to find every other plug in the house and "free it".
