Last Little While

I know a lot of people have been waiting for an update on what has been going on in our lives lately. We found out we are pregnant recently and that has been the most exciting news but there have been other exciting things going on as well!

In March we celebrated my big brothers birthday! Tyson and I thought of a really funny joke. Nikki had told us Bryan was looking for rock climbing equipment and she had sent me pictures of the kinds he wanted so I could have an idea of the right stuff to buy. So Tyson and I bought the good stuff, but we also bought some dinky little key chains too. We wrapped them separately and hid the real gift. We gave him the fake gift first.
Bryan is such a good sport. Immediately I could see on his face, "Uh this is the wrong thing." but we just kept smiling. When my mom asked what it was he said "rock climbing equipment" smiled and told us thanks. He didn't want to hurt our feelings and tell us we were wrong.
Well I am not a good liar so I pulled out the real gift and gave it to him. We could see the relief on his, and Nikki's, face. It was a pretty funny joke!
We went to Idaho a few weeks ago to see Tyson's little brother, Nathaniel, give his missionary address before he leaves on his mission. Needless to say I forgot to take fun pictures and this was the only one I took all weekend!
We did have a great time with family. We were only up there for about 24 hours but it was really awesome to be surrounded by so many family members! Congrats Nathaniel!

Easter came and it was a really nice one. We got to spend the afternoon with the Crown side of our family and we decided to color eggs.
Little Lucas had fun with the dye, and after a while Bryan warmed up to it too.
Tyson made a really gross egg.
And some pretty ones too.
We had an Easter Egg Hunt at the Crown home! I was really excited to go watch my little nephew, Lucas, run around and get the eggs. Then my mom let me know I got to be a part of the hunt as well! She had already gotten sweet little surprises for the baby!

The boys hid the eggs.

The girls, and Lucas, searched high and low.
And I think we got them all.... if not there will be rotting eggs in my parents yard!
And the latest happenings...... I GRADUATED! I now have my Bachelors of Science in the field of Communications with an emphasis in Speech Communication! Yipee!
Tyson has been so great to support me. Through all the money saving so we wouldn't have to use loans. Through all the hours I spend away from him because I had to study. Through putting off his own school so I could finish without debt and through all the tears I shed because I cry under stress. He has been my rock. He has always reminded me that I can do this and that I am smart. Even when I fail an exam or two. I love him and I am so glad to have him!
My parents have been my other major support system through my college days. They were there right from the start. Through moving out, finding jobs, tears again and many many MANY crazy roommate stories. They have always answered when I call needing a compliment because I may feel down. They have always been there to cheer me on when I do well. I am so lucky to have the parents I have. They have taught me so much and they are a major reason I am who I am today!
I am very excited to be graduated and on my way. I don't know what lies in store next except baby is coming. I should probably start learning how to raise kids....
