Lola's first dance recital

Lola did her first dance recital yesterday and she did so good! We are so proud of her. It was funny that they did the recital at an old folks home in ogden, but it seemed like the people had a good time.

new beginings

Well it has been a long time simce I have written anything on here, but I figure I will give this blog another shot.  A lot of new and interesting things have happened in my life since I last posted.  Lola is 3 and a half years old now and Owen boy is 16 months!  I can't believe I am a father of two of the most beautiful children in the world.  Francis Ford Copolla once said, "Your don't become a man until you have children."  Man was he right.  I couldn't have imagned my life turning out as good as it has.  I have gone through many trials in my life that I feel have made me the man I am today.  I suffer from depression and anxiety that I need to take medication for daily.  People are always shocked when I tell them this because I seem to be a very happy and out going person.  This is true, but sometimes I struggle, but I feel like the struggles and me overcoming them make me stronger. 

Most of you know my wife Dari, and know how amazing and sweet and beautiful she is.  Well I am here to tell you that she is the most amazing woman in the world.  I thank God on a daily basis for leading us to each other.  She has had to put up with a lot of stress from me and some bad decisions I have made in life, but we do things together and we are so in love it's just simply awesome!  I left the church for awhile not knowing what I wanted in life spirtually and mentally I was unsure.  But, Dari stuck by me and supported me in everything I did and really was just always there for me.  In the last few months I have really changed as a person.  I have found new patience that I never thought I had and have been the happiest I have ever been in my life.  Our kids are healthy and our marriage is eternal.  I have come back to the church and found a new love for it and it feels great.  I love Dari and the kids more than I can even write in words.  My life is great and I see amazing things in the future. 

I start the police academy in less than a week!  I am so excited and can't wait for this new chapter in my life.  I will keep up with posts about it and how it's going.  Well, thats about it for now, we are all happy healthy and having the time of our lives.

With love,
