In case you haven't heard...

We're moving!

Kevin has officially accepted a job as a corps member for Teach for America! This is exciting, scary, and sad all at the same time. We will be moving June 11 to Indianapolis. I've decided saying Indianapolis sounds a lot better than just Indiana. We will be there 2 years and then off to law school, hopefully at University of Pennsylvania.

Here are some of the good things about Indianapolis (I'm trying to be positive):
1. Hiram and Tashina are an hour or so away
2. Plane tickets to Maryland are fairly cheap
3. Kevin will be a great teacher
4. Indianapolis has a Trader Joe's and Utah does not
5. We're getting closer to the east coast!
6. Indianapolis is a reasonably priced place to live

Now things I'm sad about and going to miss:
1. Crazy, but Utah has been my home my whole adult life. It's bitter sweet to leave.
2. I love our house and for the next 5 years, we will definitely not be living in luxury.
3. Our amazing friends, neighbors, and family that we live so close to.
4. The list of our favorite restaurants (lame I know but I'm going to miss them)

So, goodbye Utah. We have 5 more weeks together. Love, the Tame's.

Nana Visits!

We were lucky to have my mom come out and visit for a week! Joshua and I were definitely spoiled while Kevin slaved away at school. Here is a rundown of our busy week:

We picked up Grandma from the airport and then went shopping and ate at Red Robin. Yum! Joshua got his first Yankees hat!

The aquarium! Joshua LOVES fish so we have season passes. They have a place where you are able to touch the stingrays. Josh isn't a huge fan of the stingrays, but can't get enough of the water.


The children's museum, Discovery Gateway in Salt Lake. We had so much fun here! It was the busiest I've ever seen it, but Joshua didn't care. He loved playing with the balls, cars, and following the big kids around. We went with our good friend Amber and her baby girl Aaliyah. Afterwards, we had some California Pizza Kitchen and Anthropolgie shopping. A day doesn't get much better than that!



We went to Gardner village. I had never been there before but heard it had some cute shops and was fun to walk around. It was the perfect day to go. The weather was great! It was tiring chasing after an active 18 month old but we made it. They also have a little petting farm so we took Joshua to see the animals. At first he wasn't too into them, but after a bit he started petting them. Me on the other hand, did not want anything to do with touching them. Looking from far away was fine with me!



Kevin was back so we all went to the movies to see How to Train a Dragon. Apparently it's really good but I couldn't tell you because Joshua and I played in the hall for the last 45 minutes. But, it was fun to go and he enjoyed the first half, eating his popcorn, lounging on my lap. Afterwards, we went to Sawadee, a fav of ours.

Saturday may have been the best. It was absolutely gorgeous weather, Kevin was with us, and we went to the zoo. It was just fun being all together. We saw tons of animals, rode the carousel a bunch of times, and went on the train ride. Afterwards, we met up with Kenny and Chelsea for dinner at the usually great, Porcupine. Not that night. It was disastrous, a night to remember. But, it ended fine with great food and great company.


The usual, nothing special. Church and hanging out.

On Monday we had to say goodbye to Nana. We had a blast and we're so thankful she was able to come visit us! Visit again soon!
