Brown Reunion 2011

The Brown reunion was alot of fun! It is always great to see all the cousins. We ran down Greens Peak, played Minute to win it, had a family dance, and of course games! Going to the reunion has always been something that I look forward to all year. I just love being able to say I'm a Brown!;] (Sorry the pictures are out of order)

On top of Greens Peak.

After the run down Greens Peak we had a family picnic. T.J earned his cold soda.;]

Run down Greens Peak!! All that were at the top.

At the end we had to crab crawl down! T.J was a little scared at first. But he finished out strong!

Kid games

You can't have a Brown Reunion with out a family dance!

Those crazy Smiths!

(Minute to win it videos are on the The Posterity of Elda Whiting and J. Albert Brown facebook page if you want to see them. They are pretty funny!:})

Les Miserables!!!

For my birthday Timmy got me tickets to Les Miserables in June! I had gone to the play once before when I was 10 and have been obsessed ever sense. I was so excited I was like a kid again. I had so much fun getting every thing ready for it. I told Timmy that if he let me buy a new dress that I would buy some HOT HEELS to go along with it. He of course said YES! He love me in heels. When Timmy and I started dating is when I stopped where them. So he was very excited to see what I would come up with. Taryn and I had some fun finding the right dress and shoes.;]

Can you tell how excited I am?

On the way!

Our seats were dead center. I was very happy about that!;]

There is something about dressing up all fancy that makes a girl feel great! And look at the HOTTIE next to me! We are one great looking couple!!

4 inch heels!! I forgot how people look at you when tall women looks even taller. At first I was embarrassed. Then I remembered how good Timmy and I looked, and love it!;]

It was a well need night out with the love of my life. The play was beyond awesome! And I didn't want it to end. It was I night I will never forget!;]

May (better late than never)

We went camping with the Larsons. It was fun but REALLY windy. We sleep in our tent, and lets just say Timmy and I got NO sleep. The kids didn't even notice, and sleep right through it.

The days weren't as bad as the nights. We went on a long hike, the kids got rides on the 4 wheeler, and played board games. The wind got so bad at night that we decided to cut our trip short and leave a day early.

We went to the park, and played at the splash pad. Then ran around and had some fun.

It was a great weekend over all.;]

My Crazy Month (its a long post)

April has always been a crazy month for me, but this one tops all others! It all started on the 1st. Timmy had a mission reunion in Utah. So we packed up the kids and drove the Sandy, where we stayed with Timmy's brother. I forgot how long of a drive it was, but Timmy and I had some really great conversation.:) The reunion was fun. It was great to see Timmy try and remember Portuguese to speak with his mission Pres. (Sorry its so small. I don't know how to fix it.)

Then on the 9th my Grandpa had a massive stork at his house. Family came to see him in the hospital to say there good buys. He passed on Monday the 11th. The funeral was on the 16th. He lived a wonderful 92 years, 10 months of which was alone. I think he was in a hurry to be back in Grandmas arm. The funeral was a wonderful tribute to his great life. Lots of great memories, He will be greatly missed.
Here are some family photos.

My 27th birthday was on the 14th. I had a great lunch with Timmy. And then spent some time at my Moms grave site with Pammie and Levi. It was really nice to just walk around and reminisce. Timmy had to work late, but he made it up to me. He gave me ticket to the 25th anniversary of Les miserables !! I am so excited, I can hardly wait!!;] It will be a awesome night.

I also got a delicious ice cream cake! Mint chocolate chip!

On the 15th Timmy sister Tricia got married!;] Here is the sweet family.

And the happy couple!

We are excited to have Matthu join our family. And look forward to getting to know him better!;]

Grandpas funeral was on Saturday the 16th, and his burial was on Monday 18th at the Veterans Memorial Cemetery. I have never been to a military burial, it was a very sweet experience. I will never forget it.

Easter Sunday we went to my Dad ward and then had a great day of eating and talking. Mama planned a egg hunt for the kids. They love all the fun treats in the eggs.

We tryed to get a cute picture of the cute kid with their treats. But they were way more interested in other things.

Pammie and Levi both made a mess of them selves. And I didn't bring them extras clothes. Gotta love messy kids!;]

The 24th was also the 11 year anniversary of my Mothers death. It is really hard to believe it has been 11 years. Their is not a day that goes by with out me thinking of her. I love to talk to my kids about her. T.J loves that he is luckily to have 2 Grandmas Smiths! I am so grateful to know the true gospel. To know that I will see her again some day. If I didn't know this I think I would go crazy. I have been very blessed to know the truth. It was a ruff month emotionally, but I know heavenly father does not put you through something you can't get through. I have to say I'm glad April is over, and look forward to the new challenges and blessings in my life.

This was taken when I was 15. After a round of kemo. She was in remission. We worked a school dance together for Duke photo.

Someone at Duke took this of her before she got sick again. She worked there up untiled she passed.

Love you and miss you Mommy!:}
