Hello all! This is a post directed to Hyrum's family blog.. but we figured we'd give everyone else an update too...
So lately this is what's been going on with us (via pictures).
1. Graduation... kinda...
Contrary to popular to belief, we actually didn't graduate yet! We just walked so they could take fancy pictures (which Hyrum was thrilled about...) and go out to dinner with mom and dad.
During Spring term, Hyrum's taking two classes (plus beginning golf- watch out brother golf game!!) and still working as a TA. Jenna finished her internship (much to her delight!) and is taking about 4 classes of GE's she never finished (and regrets).
June 18th is our last day of finals and we will OFFICIALLY be done - as long as we don't drop out between now and then.
2. El Nino
This is our 15th week (which means Jenna is feeling much better.. which means Hyrum is feeling much better too) and we're heading into the second trimester! We heard the baby's heartbeat a couple weeks ago, which was amazing. We were a little concerned at first when the doctor took awhile to find it, but he did and said everything sounded great! We wish we would have asked him how fast it was so that we could better educate our guesses about boy or girl, but we should find that out within a month or so? (Sorry Alicia, we've sold out). We are really excited and can't wait to be parents!
3. CORE as in apple core, not Coor's light as mom thought :)

4. Viva Las Vegas!
Along with that, most of you know we will be moving to Vegas after the Bear Lake trip (which we are stoked about!!!) We're thinking we'll actually head out June 29th and will move in with Jenna's parents for a few weeks until we can make an offer on a home. We say a few weeks with hopeful hearts that the process will go fast! :) We're really happy/grateful to be able to get into our own place soon and Jenna is really excited to be able to decorate our own place soon. While we know the summer will be hot, hot, hot (especially for the baby!) we will definitely be encouraging visitors (all of you!) to come in the winter months when our average temps will be in the 60's.
On that note, we are definitely sad to extend our commute to mom and dad's from 1 hour to 6 1/2 (don't let it discourage you from coming!!) and even more so, to be further from most of our family. But because this is beginning to sound depressing, we are going to move on! Just know, that we will be missing everyone a bunch.
5. We Love You!
I'm sure that there are more exciting things happening that we are forgetting to write about (but probably not..) So we will see you all soon at Fast Sunday/ Bear Lake!
P.S. There are no crocodiles. And, we attached a video we saw lately that we really liked. The beginning is a little strange, but keep watching and it brings a little perspective and a laugh. Enjoy! Click on the title to be linked to it.
