Vacation in Seattle

The Shenk Family has returned from a wonderful week on vacation in the lovely city of Seattle! We enjoyed spending time together as a family, both relaxing and sight-seeing, and would like to thank the people of Washington for their incredible hospitality, as well as The Maple, for being a great place to stay while there. Too many pictures to post here, so be sure to check out our Picasa album for the rest.

Tulip Festival 2010

Thanksgiving Point Gardens, here in Lehi, Utah, hosts an annual Tulip Festival that is just wonderful and has such gorgeous flowers! The Shenk Family went yesterday, despite the 50-degree temperature (seriously, where is spring?!), and took lots of pictures of all different kinds of flowers. It was very difficult to narrow them down, so there are quite a few here. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday, Chris!

Yesterday was Chris's birthday, and we celebrated with a delicious dinner at our favorite Indian restaurant with our fabulous neighbors/friends. In honor of his special day, his lovely wife baked him an Orange Ribbon Cheesecake from scratch! Truly a labor of love...
Isn't it pretty?!

Happy Birthday, Chris! We love you!
