About our family...

Our family started on June 2, 2000. We have been married 10 years. We have three boys (Drake 5, Warner 4, & Henry). Michael is the Executive Director of Utah Shared Access Alliance (USA-ALL) and a state lobbyist. I am a registered nurse, and a third-year law student at BYU. Drake is starting Kindergarten in the fall, and Warner is getting ready to start pre-school in the fall. Henry arrived July 7, 2010. Henry was diagnosed with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) and passed away, after 32 hours, on July 9, 2010. This blog provided updates on what was going on with Henry, and gives a little insight into our thoughts through the challenges we faced during his birth and death.

Be sure to read "The day we found out our baby has HLHS," under must read blogs, and if you want more info about HLHS there is a link in the right column that is a brochure from Mayo Clinic about HLHS.

Michael - "The Chef"

The weather has got us all a little down. So we decided to add some pretty floral arrangements to our house to make it feel a little more like spring (since the weather is not cooperating). We are ready to do a little work in our backyard, but the weather has not been good enough to plant any of our flowers or start or garden. I look forward to warm evenings on the patio, candle light, and Michaels great BBQ food.

Michael is really becoming a great cook. He has pretty much taken over the cooking in our house and prepares about 80% of the meals. Thank goodness because I could live off canned soup and peanut butter and jam sandwiches. Michael is saving our family from my tolerability of cheap, plain food. Who needs to spend all that money and time on food when it's just as easy to heat up a can of soup? But, when you have gourmet food that is prepared and displayed before you how can you resist?

Hopefully, soon, you all get to try some of Michael’s yummy cooking. Besides my Mom’s home cooking, and Grandma Swenson's home cooking, I have never had food as well prepared as Michael’s. His cooking surely competes with the likes of Market Street Grill & the Foundry Grill. He just has a gift for identifying flavors and choosing quality products to make outstanding cuisine.
