It was so much fun seeing all of my siblings together at once and many of their children and spouses! I had such a great time dancing with my baby brother, Jon and Hans got to dance with his Arizona cousins.
Before Hans and I drove home Friday afternoon, we stopped with Ditte and her children at the Center Street Cemetary in Mesa to visit my parents' and my brother and sister's graves there. It's still strange to look down at my mom and dad's headstone and realize they are both gone. I feel like they are still with us, just on a mission or one of their trips together...which in a sense, that is true!
When I got home late Friday night, John was just coming home from an all day sailing trip out to Santa Cruz Island again with our son, Erik and some friends. They had a good time. We enjoyed a weekend of family in town and spent Saturday enjoying walks near the Ventura Pier together.Jonathan, Haans, Erik, Kirsten, Tyson, Hans

For Spring Break, John and I, Mette and Hans, drove up to Utah to attend General Conference and we had tickets for the Sunday morning session in the Conference Center. We enjoyed being there so much and it was Hans' first time actually attending conference in person since he is old enough now.
This past Sunday, we enjoyed Easter and had 40 at our house for dinner this year. We had a fun Easter Egg Hunt in our front yard, too.
