April 10th, 2010
The girls competed in their first swim meet. It was a very long day to say the least...7:30 am - 5:30 pm (and I thought baseball games were long). They had fun and learned alot and in the end that's what it's all about. Natalie was so excited to share with her Dad she had placed 3rd when Savannah called her out on there only being 3 people in her heat. You gotta love little sisters! LOL!!!

Natalie had here 12th birthday! She was Happy with a trip to the Mall with her good friend. They browsed shops, got pedicures and ate dinner at Pat and Oscars. The Young Women in our church kidnapped Natalie and took her to Yogurt as a suprise. Good times!

The whole family...I mean the whole Hampton Family (all 26 of us) headed to Conrad, Montana for Gramma B's 100th Birthday. We flew in with a snow storm and were stuck at Great Falls Airport until power lines were cleared from the road. Quite an experience for us Desert Rats... Once getting to Montana, we met up with more extended family and managed to book the entire Super 8 Motel. Our weekend was filled with lots of Berthelson Family time (good thing there is lots of us cause there's not a whole lot to do in Conrad, Montana). We were able to have a few good visits with Grandma B and loved every bit of seeing her anticipation for the Big Town Party in her behalf. There were many priceless moments spent together with family from near and far and we thoroughly enjoyed the serenity of Montana. Best of all was seeing the beauty in the eyes of our family Matriarch and sharing in her turn of a Century.

May 6th, 7th, 8th & 9th, 2010
Devin performed in the LaQuinta High School musical, "Suessical". Bright colors, fun music, and lots of talent were displayed by the cast. Devin was a Wilkersham Brother (monkey) and played the part perfectly. He ended the whole experience hungry for more!

In between all of that other non-sense we've been busy gardening, playing kick ball in the back yard, gather and selling eggs and getting ready for summer. It's been a great Spring all around and is really hard to believe another school year is almost behind us.
