WOW!!! I have a graduate, it has gone by so fast I remember sending her to Kindergarten and wondering if she was going to be all right. She has grown to be such a beautiful daughter we could not ask for more. She had some hard times going to school as a sophmore, yeah she got that from her father. So we had a stressful year wondering if she really was going to do it. But the last month came and she put her mind to it and YES she achieved her goal less than 24 hours before graduation day, but she did it. We are so proud of JJ and the person she is. We are so thankful to our family and the support they have always shown her as she has grown, they have always been there for her and we can not express in words the love and appreciation we have for all of you. THANKS FAMILY, ALL OF YOU, YOU ARE THE GREATEST!!!
This year for spring break our family decided on the spur of the moment to go to California with some of our cousins, The Sandersons. On Sunday, both families met in Nephi for lunch. Then we drove to Las Vegas where we stayed in The Stratosphere. It was so awesome to have a swimming pool on top of the building. After a hard core game of pool basketball, parents vs. kids, we all got ready, went to dinner, and walked the strip where kyson of course pimped it up with the show girls! But of course that wasn't epic enough for the dads. Ryan and Kelly had the idea of taking everyone to ride the rides on top of the Stratosphere, and eventually they talked most of the kids into it. Jenica, Korbin, Kyson and Shayli all rode big shot on top, while Shelby and JJ stood on the balconly watchin and the moms hung out in the rooms. Shayli, Jen, Ryan and Kelly continued to ride EVERY ride on top even the one that pretends to shoot you off the whole building. The next morning we all woke up and continued the drive to California. When we finally got there that night, we were all so tired we just hung out at the condo, grocery shopped, and ate (what a surprise, we ate ALL THE TIME) Tuesday was Sea World day, and the begining of all of our sunburns. The best thing about sea world was the Atlantis ride, because the shows aren't what they used to be when we were young and amused by the littlest things. Kelly on the other hand thought the best thing was watching us all get wet especially when it was him paying a quarter to squirt us with the gun. Wednesday was they day we went to the Happiest Place on Earth, Disneyland. We spent the whole day riding all the different rides between both parks, again not as amusing as we thought it would be. Its so good the Sandersons were there to keep us entertained. Thursday was more just a chill out day, we stayed in San Diego and went to the beach, food, swam, food and slept did i mention food, i told you we just can't get enough! "It's a Walker thing". The beach was sooo cold. But despite the cold we still managed to have fun and get in. On Friday we couldnt' really figure out what to do, so when we found out our cousin Kyler had a baseball game in st george we decided why not go home half way and have some fun with our family down south. That night Darin and Les introduced our family to Texas Roadhouse( BAAADD idea, we are addicted now! Thanks a lot!!) well i guess you can say we had a lot of fun. It was really good to get together as a family and spend some quality time together!
Its us the Levins, we are just going to tell you a little about each of us...
We have been married twenty years this last May. We have two daughters and two sons. Our family loves just being together, supporting each others hobbies, and just having fun. We love to go boating, play horse golf, wrestling, scooter up the road to Grandma's, eat, watch big brother, four wheeling rides, just plain ol' spending time together.
Ryan owns his own glass business here in Pleasant Grove, he loves anything to do with wrestling. Whether its being on the side of the match coaching the boys, or right in the middle of the action officiating. He can fix anything and do anything he puts his mind to.
I run a daycare in our home. There are kids in our home twenty four seven no matter the age. I am always busy with the family, home, and the next sport our kids have suckered me into being that "team mom" but I love it though.
JJ, a.k.a Boss, or princess. Just graduated from Pleasant Grove High School in 2009, she has grown up so fast. She is currently working for United Recovery and trying to decide her next step in life; work or school. She loves being with the family.
Jenica our little graduate, and when I say little I mean little.(We are still shopping in the little girl section for her) Jenica has always been our soft hearted one. Right now she is working with me doing daycare. It's been so nice to have a little help. You can always find her with her saving grace Trevor.
Korbin's a sophmore, and yes you can tell. This year he will be on the Pleasant Grove High School Wrestling Team, and we can not wait. Korbin has worked his whole life to be on this team, and he will be lucky enough to have his Uncle Kelly be his coach(hopefully for all four years) He spends alot of time in the mirror lately, thinkin he looks pretty good I guess this is what comes with high school boys.
Kyson the youngest of the family, and our football stud. He always making us laugh, whether it is him being funny or him throwing an angry fit, there is always a smile when he is around. He is the one and only who can make Ryan speechless after his comebacks. He thinks he is a ladies man, which I have to admit he is pretty darn cute.
