The past month has been very busy for the Alleman Family. We started off May by going to Utah for Zach and Alison's wedding. It was wonderful to be in the Salt Lake Temple with all of Jeremy's brothers and most of the sister in laws. We spent a week in Provo with Jeremy's brother Ryan and his family. Kirsten had a ton of fun with her cousins Eric and Beth. You could tell when watching them that they have known each other a whole lot longer than their 3 short years on this earth.
While in Utah we were able to go up to the ski slopes and play in the snow, as well as spend some time on Temple Square. For the rest of the trip Kirsten kept asking to see her Princess Castle Temple. We tried showing her the Provo temple, but she would not be satisfied, she insisted on seeing the "Bigger One". We had a wonderful time visitng with both of Jeremy's grandparents, and my Uncle Larry and his family.
Over Memorial Day weekend we drove up to Topeka, Kansas to visit my mom. Jeremy and I were able to drive to Kansas City to see the musical, WICKED. It was phenomenal. Jeremy made fun of the fact that I kept crying. I can hardly wait until it comes to Dallas and we can see it again. While we were at the musical, Kirsten went with my mom to Gage Park in Topeka. They went to the zoo, rode the carousel and the train. Since my mom works for BNSF Railroad, who sponsors the train, Kirsten was able to go up front with the conductor and pull the choo-choo whistle and call All-Aboard for the other passengers. She is thoroughly obsessed with trains now thanks both to Grandma Starnes and her cousin Eric.
Kirsten gets bigger everyday and we are having fun swimming now that it is warmer. We actually went to the pool twice yesterday. She starts swimming lessons next week and is really excited about it.
It was great to see Zach, Alison and Jason this past weekend. We never can get enough of our family!
