Riley's Choice

Yesterday Riley got baptized! He has been taking the missionary lessons, and I am so proud of his decision to take this step. Riley's dad Brandon baptized him and it was very special to the 2 of them. You should have seen ALL the people there! Our families are HUGE! I am so glad that every one was there from all of sides of his family! It meant a lot to Clint and I and also to Riley. My in laws came from Richfield, my sis and brother in law came up from Cedar City and we just had a wonderful time! It was a lot of fun to have 7 more people and 2 more dogs at our house, we don't get to do that too often!

Here are my boys before the big event!

Here are my dad and step mom with my dad's parents.

Here is my little firecracker, she is such a pistol!

Here is a picture of my step dad who came down from Wyoming to see Riley too!

This is a picture of all of the Goodman side that could make it.

Again we are all so proud of Riley and the choice he has made! He had to go under 4 times before they got him all done but that's OK! We love you buddy!

Riley's First Game!

Riley has his first baseball game of the season yesterday! He is playing for the Diamondbacks and they look to be a pretty good team this year! At the scrimmage game on Thursday they boys got their uniforms. Riley of course chose number 3 which he has had every year since he started playing. I guess there was some confusion when ordering shirts and the coaches wanted him to take a shirt that didn't really fit him, but Clint stood up for Riley and said he has the number he wants and it fits him so he needs to keep it. Problem Solved. Or so we thought! Walking to the field on Saturday morning, I saw a kid in the number 3 uniform on the field that WAS NOT my son. I went into the dugout to say hello to Riley and wish him luck and asked him what happened with the uniform. He didn't want to tell me but finally did tell me that the coach made him trade but the number 6 uniform didn't really fit him, it was way too short. SO I promptly got mad. I walked out of the dugout and asked Camille (Riley's step mom) if she knew what had happened with the shirt situation. She was sitting by both of the coaches wives and they said that the coaches rounded up all the shirts and matched the sizes we had ordered to the boys and assigned numbers that way. YEAH RIGHT! I was so mad because I felt like Riley had been taken advantage of, and if you thought I was mad, you should have seen my husband! He was all cussing and giving me attitude. I could see his point but I wasn't going to make a big deal about it at that time. Anyways, the boys played well and we ended up winning 3-2. I hurried to the car since we had a bunch of family there and I wasn't going to make Riley embarrassed by making a scene. I was hoping Clint would feel the same way, and thank heavens he did. I guess it will all roll around right, or we can go have another jersey made that has his name on it. We didn't want to say something to the coaches and have them punish Riley for it. Anyways, I am off that soap box! I am glad Riley had fun, and I can't wait to see him improve this season as he has in the past! GO DIAMONDBACKS!

Anika's first games

Anika was so excited to play softball again this year! She has been practicing every free minute she has had. She was very excited when she found out she has 2 good friends on the same team and their mom's are the coaches! She is playing for Champion Technologies this year and their uniforms are pink and white. What little girl doesn't want pink and white uniforms? We had 2 games on Wednesday and we won both! I was so proud of Anika, she ran fast and hit the ball every time she was up! I can't wait to see how she progresses this year!

Maci's Soccer Game

My cousin Maci Rae had her first soccer game on last Saturday so the kids and I went to watch and cheer her on!

We knew her game would be great since Riley found a ladybug on the grass!

This was a great goal!

Good thing Crowd Control kept these guys in line!

Everyone needs to stretch before the game!

Girls Trip

When my Grandma Lou turned 75, we decided to plan a girls trip. We decided to go down to Zion National Park and just hang out in southern Utah for a few days. My Grandma Lou, Aunt Teri, my cousin Leslie and my grandma's friend La Rue were the only ones that could go but we had a blast! Out trip started out going to Salt Lake to drop off a car and then down to Springdale Utah. Our hotel was right outside of the Zion National Park and even the views from our hotel window were AWESOME! On Saturday there were chances of rain so we decided to drive into St George and do some shopping and head into Mesquite to do a little bit of gambling. It was fun! Then Sunday morning we decided to drive through Zion before coming home to our families. All in all it was a great trip and I can't wait to do it again!

Easter Weekend!

First off sorry for ALL of these pictures, but I couldn't decide which ones to not post so I posted them all. These are from our Spring Break and Easter weekend. Thursday night Clint and the girls went to pick up Brashae in Price and when they got home we all watched Marley and Me. I have never ever cried so much at a movie before. I loved it though and have since bought the tear jerker!
Friday we just hung out and went grocery shopping and delivered some orders. I was very glad I had the day off of work. Friday evening my mom came over and we dyed eggs. We had one adult for every girl to dye eggs with and that is why there aren't many pictures.
Saturday morning we woke up to dreary clouds and got ready to go to the egg hunts in town. Brashae had a cough and so we didn't want to get any sicker, so we just hunted at the Museum with my dad and stepmom. It is a very fun hunt for the kids and I love it because it isn't all pandemonium and chaos. Then after that, we went up town town and goofed off some more. Saturday evening we all went to my Aunt Teri's house for dinner with my grandma. We had a good time and bowled on the wii some. Again I have no pictures except for one. I am a slacker.
Sunday we got up and Brashae stil wasn't feeling great so Anika went to church but the rest of us stayed home. Then Clint called about noon and said he would be home around one so we could all go to the family dinner at Grandma Donna's. I was very excited. We had a nice family dinner and a fun egg hunt, then we drove back to Price with Brashae and had a nice time.
Monday came and I had to work but the girls had a fun time at Sherry's and even got some sun! I hope your weekend was just as nice.
