Welcome to the Howe Hotel!

For the past two and half weeks we've had family visiting! Unfortunately our two bedroom apartment is really more of a 1.5 bedroom apartment because the second bedroom is so tiny, so sleeping 5 people can be kind of difficult. We did, however, have a lot of fun together!

My sister Natalie was on an aerobed in the den, and my parents were on an aerobed in our front room. It was a bit of a tight squeeze, and these pictures were taken before the people and all their luggage arrived! Now that everyone has gone home, our place feels HUGE.

In addition to my sister's new baby and Dave's graduation, my family was in town for:

My Sister's Endowment at the Mt. Timpanogos Temple

It has been wonderful as the oldest sibling to be there as my sisters and brother have gone through the temple. Side note - it was so sunny that I could not keep my eyes open for a picture no matter what trick I tried. Even the 1-2-3 open your eyes right before the picture takes didn't work. I guess I need to get our more so a sunny day doesn't blind me!

My Cousin Allison's Wedding

Unfortunately we not able to attend the actual wedding because I had work and Dave had finals, but we did go to the reception that evening. It was fun to see the Lambert side of the family, and my cousin was a beautiful bride!

There was a player piano at the reception that was fascinating to my niece Anne. She loved watching the keys, and then suddenly decided that she wanted to make some music of her own. Luckily we were nearby and able to cut her concert short before too many people noticed.

Skiing at Snowbird

One great part of having my dad in town is that he takes me skiing! I have been skiing with my dad since I was little (he taught me everything I know!) and so it's always fun to have a ski day with him. We went to Snowbird on Saturday and enjoyed some warm hot weather. This was true spring skiing! The snow was nice and soft and by the end of the day I had taken off my coat, fleece, hat, ski gloves, and ski pants.

Skiing in shorts - the only time I've ever had to put sunscreen on my knees!
