Fam Jam + Sister’s Day

We just finished the most epic Boyce Fam Jam! (The newest name for our family reunion.) It was a wonderful week of cousins, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and laughing. We all went up to grandma’s house but we stayed in hotels because there are so many of us! I actually absolutely loved the hotel aspect. We would stay up late in the lobby and/or go swimming or just hang out. 

The first night, we found out that Dallin H. Oaks was staying on our floor so we casually waited by the door in the lobby all night….he never came. Sooo he was probably already in his room because my cousin saw him in the morning. Haha we also saw the General Relief Society President & the guy who does Music & the Spoken Word. Didn’t realize we were at a church headquarters retreat, but there was just no other explanation for it. 😂 

Other highlights of the reunion included a red neck slip and slide that slid down a mountain, picking apples from grandpa’s apple trees together, ordering late night pizzas & exchanging stories, going to a church history pageant out in the middle of nowhere, a little Salt Lake impromptu shopping trip, a testimony meeting, Swig, making cookies, & the non-stop laughs. I love my sweet, crazy family! 

Also, it’s National Sisters Day & I’m so glad I got to spend it with my sister. We laugh so hard together and I love her so much! So glad she’s my forever sissy & twin. 💕

What do you guys do for family reunions? Any traditions? I would love to hear any ideas you have as we will be planning some in the future. Love y’all!

XOXO,

Alyse

Pretty in Pink. 💕


Hope everyone had a great April! Time seriously flies so quickly. Sometimes I’m fine with that, but most the time, I try to hold on.

Speaking of time, Trent (my sweet little brother) gets home in 3.5 months. It’s almost been 2 years since I’ve seen him. He’s been serving the Lord down in Chile- his first time away from home was Chile. I’m so proud of his sacrifice he has made. He could have been attending college for 2 years already, but he chose to put others above himself & serve the Lord. We have received blessings for his service, but we absolutely cannot wait until he comes home to us!

Also, it’s my cute sister’s birthday this week! 🎉 I miss her so much. Anyone who knows her knows how fun, thoughtful, and caring she is. She’s also beautiful & I love her! She is my little twin. It seems like just yesterday that she was born. I’m so happy she came to this Earth & that I get to be sisters with her. Happy birthday, Meme! 💕

I can’t wait to celebrate with her when I see her next. 🍭🎂🍬

XOXO,

To Grandmother’s House We Go…

We are on our way to Grandma’s house this week for Thanksgiving, so here’s a little throw back to last year around this time, when we went to Grandma’s house. Who else is SO excited?!

This past weekend was amazing. Nick and I popped into St. George to go see Mia in her high school play. She was part of the ensemble for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolored Dreamcoat, and she rocked it. She sang and danced with so much energy, and she looked beautiful on stage. It made me want to sing and dance more! Also, we had musical songs stuck in our heads all weekend, and we would all frequently break out into song. It was so fun. I love being home.

Also,I finally have a phone again, so I’m happy for that! Two more days of work and then more family time! Hooray!

XOXO,

Alyse
