The Busy Beginning of April

On March 31st, my sister and her friends came into town. They spent a couple nights with us before heading to Idaho for their spring break. They were lots of fun. We watched General Conference together on Sunday:

I'll have you know, girls, that I used this picture because you were all looking at the camera, even though the other picture was better of me ;o)
They played silly games together. We just watched.
That weekend, Thomas' dad, cousin, and a few friends were in town as well. We all went out to Tucano's for dinner before the friends had to fly home:

In addition to all of those visitors, Thomas' brother Robert and his family were in town later in the week, for various events for Camille's family:

I even got to hold Abe for a little while :o) I actually held Ian, too, but we didn't get any photographic proof...
On Easter Sunday, we went up to Camille's family's ward for the twin boys' blessing day:

Bradshaw & James guys

Thomas' cousin, Anna, is a brilliant photographer.

Last week I had my last classes for the semester. I got a chance to really clean our apartment and on Saturday I took 3 of my 4 finals (and turned in a take-home final). Hello freedom!

The end of March in pictures

I'm embarrassed to say that this post has basically been ready to go for more than a week. School is out now, though (except for finals), so I feel like I can actually do something other than homework :o)

Here are some pictures from the last part of March. As I'm finishing, I'm realizing how much of this post is about food. Guess we had lots of good food in March :o)

Provo Library
My birthday:

The Poppletons joined us for homemade Chinese food!
After dinner we walked to the Provo Tabernacle site together
Our 2-year anniversary:

We used my Tucano's birthday card for a nice anniversary lunch together
One of our servers. The shrimp costs extra but they had a special deal on it so we tried it. TOTALLY worth it.

Paris France Mission Reunion:

Thomas made me drive :o) It was a lot more stressful going than coming back, just gonna put that out there...
Burrito Fête!
Baguettes (from the French Bakery) with cheese (chèvre, bleu, brie,...)
Pain au chocolat; éclair (délicieux!)
The Bradshaws with Soeur and Président Pond
Springtime in Provo:

These pretty blossoms bloom on these hideous spiky plants/weeds right outside our apartment.
Daffodil outside our apartment
Pretty bulbs planted in the flower bed in front of our neighbors' apartment. They smell heavenly.
These grow in the back.
Did lots of cooking in anticipation of our full house (more on that later):

2-9x11 and 2-9x9 pans of stuffed shells, 2 loaves of homemade bread (1 pictured, made into garlic bread) and some cinnamon rolls.
