Rockies vs Giants

We went to a baseball game up at Coors Field on Friday evening. Austin has been so excited about it. He would every day if we were going to see baseball. We had to keep reminding him that Friday is when we were going to go.
Austin had a blast! We got great $15.00 parking right at the entrance. It was so much fun to see Austin enjoy the game and get into it. He would yell hey batter, batter, batter. and other cute comments he heard us and other people say. The game was fun too, even though we lost. Austin did great pretty much the whole game. He got a little restless at the eight inning (it was way long), but I was getting restless too. Here are some cute pictures.

WICKED - The untold story of the witches of OZ

I have been waiting for this Broadway show to come to Colorado for about a year now. I was able to go and see it with Kaarina, thanks to Amy (Chris' sister). She teaches choir and was taking her students and I was able to get a ticket at a great price, and the seats weren't too shabby.
This was a wonderful show, if any of you have a chance to see it, I highly recommend it. It is based off the book "Wicked", I haven't read it, but heard it is much cleaner and the way the story should have been. The music is wonderful. It explains so much of the Wizard of OZ movie, why thing were the way they were, and is the Wicked Witch of the West really Wicked? Just thought I'd share. ;)

My Little Missionary

Austin had his first Primary Activity 2 weeks ago. It's theme was Missionary Day. About a week before Austin got his Mission call in the mail. He was really excited, Austin loves to get mail. We told him that he was going to be a missionary and learn to teach the gospel. They asked that the children wear Sunday dress (Austin wore Chris's old missionary name tag). Below are some cute pictures of Austin. There is one with his companion, they were called to the Mexico Mission. There is a picture of the class were he learned to speak some Spanish, and of course the ultimate Missionary Food Pizza was served. Austin had a lot of fun, they also learned how to sew on a button, he did rather well. He is really excited to go on a mission and teach the gospel.

On the Ice with New Hockey Gear!

Alright, You've seen photos with Austin in his new Hockey Gear, but here he is on the ice. He is having such a blast. He is doing so good Ice Skating, just last week he went around the whole Ice rink with out falling twice (not in a row) He was so proud of himself! I was at a scrapbooking convention or I would have taken pictures. I am so happy for him.

Here is a picture of My mother, Katariina, Kaarina and I. We try to go Ice Skating every Saturday. It is such a fun family activity.
