This week I went to 3 performances of the Junior High's production of Aida, in which Maddy played the lead role of Aida and Joey played one of the lead male roles of Mereb. I was blown away by the production which in my opinion was the best I've ever seen at this age group, all biases aside. The kids had been working on this since January and the hard work payed off. Below are pictures from the show and after the show as well as videos of some of my favorite songs Maddy and Joey performed.

The Jimmer Show

Last weekend Joey and I went to the BYU vs. Wyoming basketball game at the Marriott Center in Provo. It was Jimmer Fredette's last home game and also the last game for the other Seniors. At stake was the regular season Mountain West Conference championship and Jimmer did not disappoint. Already the leading scorer in the nation, he scored 30+ points and BYU won the game. Below are pictures of the student section, Jimmer shooting free throws, the celebration at the end, and Jimmer and Brandon Davies cutting down the nets. I have no doubt Jimmer will go on to play in the NBA and it will be fun to say that we saw him play in this game.
