{Don't flip out}

Friday night, Brade & I headed over to watch BYU vs. UTAH Women's gymnastics. It was Awesome. Since I was 7 years old, it was my dream to be a collegiate gymnast. My Grandpa would record the UTAH meets and send the tapes down to us Ward girls and we'd watch them over and over; with the hopes that we would someday be one of them. Well, I never made it to that level. But I have continued to be inspired by the ability of these athletes to flip around on a 4 inch beam, to twist their bodies in amazing ways, and still manage to stand uprightly. So, here are a few photo's of the night. I dare ya to try any of these tricks at home... let me know how it turns out.

I am so amazed at how these guys do this stuff! Darren wants Kodi to do it SO bad, she is very strong and SO flexible. Anyways great pictures, they should hire you. And back to the topic of being cold, well yes we are quite cold although we haven't had snow for about 3 wks it's still cold. Yesterdays high was 17, can't wait for the summer :)

Mikki... This is Jenna (Heinrich) Corry. You are an amazing artist. I love your eye for photos! I've ALWAYS been so into pictures, but have never really learned how to take good ones! But I love looking at all of yours! I wish I would have had you for our wedding! (Our photographer FORGOT!!) Luckily our great friend was there to take some shots the rest of the day. I was wondering how much you charge for like a family shot. I would love to get a family picture taken by you! Let me know!
