They had these big army tents in between the soccer fields to go and get warm in. It was cold...really cold yesterday. The worst part was it was extremely windy. Our boys were so not used to the wind and could not judge anything out of the air. They totally killed the first team. Lost their second game...don't worry...I let them know it was the worst I have ever seen them play (like they care what I say). Saturday night we all went out to a little Italian restaurant...Tomatoes. It was really yummy. I feel like I'm getting to know the U14's parents a lot better. I feel much more comfortable with them. Maybe it's because there are hardly any LDS families on this team and so whenever we have a team outing there is some drinking involved! They are all awesome people and I actually look forward to the next tournament.
Sunday the boys lost in a shoot out in the Semi's. I hate shoot outs. Way too intense. The boys played awesome though. Shawn and I were so happy to come home to the warmer weather and the mild breeze. We are very wind burnt!

... and soccer Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday...
We are really busy with soccer right now. I was telling Shawn yesterday that last year I would be complaining right now. But I'm not. I think I've finally accepted that this is my life. haha. It's a fun and crazy life. Next weekend we have a tournament in Idaho Falls. Yuck! Yesterday we had a game in Layton & Providence. Lots of driving. Fyi: Providence is a suburb of Logan.
When we aren't at Shawn's boys' games we are at Real games, or Shawn's indoor games. . . Oh and his outdoor Men's league just started, so we have that too. His Men's competitive league has a whole bunch of new players this year...former Real & BYU players, so he is excited about the talent this year. This picture was taken last weekend at the first home game for Real Salt Lake. They were awarded their rings for being the MLS champions last season
They had a special little guest during half time. It was a cute little boy named Jonah. I think he was 5 or 6. He loves Real and Make a Wish Foundation set him up with meeting all of the players....AND David Archuleta came out and surprised him! It was sooo cute. They sang a song together. Jonah knew every word and he even sang a whole line by himself. I have a video of it, but I really don't want to upload it. Youtube it if you're interested!
We have been taking Maggie to all of the outdoor games because the weather is great! Finally! She LOVES it. She is such a soccer dog. I will have to take a video of it. Everyone is always asking me how we teach her to play soccer. We never had to teach her...she just has been around it her whole life I guess!

Here is my favorite song from last night...it's just the music!

He told me after church that he felt like all of these kids (about ages 1-3) were saying to him "why haven't you brought my friends down yet? ... you need to have a baby!"
So cute right?
So of course I immediately got a little teary eyed...
and then my heart started pounding really fast and I couldn't breathe.

I'm the oldest grandchild on my Mom's side of the family so there is a large gap between the youngest grandchildren and me...they are still coming! They are more like nieces and nephews to us older grandkids. We love it.
Grampa. Me. Justin.
Thursday night we went to up to Todd and Sharolyn's in Midway to hang out with some of the family. Allison and the kids were in town for their spring break.
Emily has Shawn wrapped around her little finger. We were getting ready to leave and she turned to Shawn and said, "No you can't go. Please don't go. You can't".
Shawn's heart was just melting.
So of course we had to stay a little while longer. Have I mentioned before how much I love the Westra kids??? Pretty sure I have. They are so cute!
I was really wishing that we wouldn't have bought tickets...the weather was horrible. I have no idea why it's snowing in April. I hate hate hate it.
Um there were way too many Mexico fans there. It was beyond ridiculous. Now let me just tell you that I'm all for immigration. Please don't ever ask my husband his stance on the subject...it gets very heated (he's for it as well). I'm even a 1/4 bean so I can talk smack. BUT I do not understand why these people move here from mexico...for a better quality of life that they can't have in Mexico and then don't cheer for the country that they live in. The country that gives them this freedom of life. I wanted to go and punch every single one of them in the face. Have some pride people!!!
