I feel like Ben officially crossed the grown-up threshold this last month as he FINALLY turned 30! He feels old but I think it's pretty impressive that in the last 10 years he served a 2 year full-time mission, married me, earned his bachelors degree, had FOUR kids, completed an internship for the Church in SLC, earned a Master's Degree, taught professionally at 2 different Universities, and has finished (almost) his first year of a PhD program...and did/is doing each one of those things with excellence and major wowing skills.
We celebrated his 30th with a date to Red Lobster, the San Antonio Temple and Six Flags. We didn't get too many pics but we sure had a great time. Thanks to our friend Annie who survived the 2 days with our 4 kids and her 2!
