Sometimes strange things happen. And this is one of those times.
After a couple of late nights at Snowbird, Sophie girl could not keep her eyes open any longer and crashed during lunch. Looks comfy!
I am so far behind! Easter seems like years ago really. We had a great holiday! With early church, we were only able to find our baskets and then scramble to make it on time. So all of our festivities came after. We colored eggs and went on a hunt. My dad barbecued the most delicious meat and we ate and ate and ate. I broke out the ice cream maker and we all enjoyed some Thin Mint ice cream. It was a great day with family.
My parents were able to come up again this year for Spring Break. It was lovely to have them here. Ryan and Kara were able to surprise them and come down from Idaho for the weekend too. It was fun to have everyone (minus Deeds…boo!) here for conference. Although with the babies around we got about 25% of conference I would say. We didn’t do much while they were here, but we are pretty chill like that. We just like to be together!
We were able to visit my grandma 0ne day while she was at her bowling league. Who thinks its awesome that my grandma is 78 and in a bowling league? Me. And p.s. she is way better than me! The kids loved bowling a game. Jack even got a couple of strikes. Something made Sophs mad and I cannot resist putting a picture of her crying face up. It is just too funny. And too bad we didn’t find the race car arcade game sooner cause I’m pretty sure they could have sat there and pretended to race all day.
We ventured downtown to City Creek. It really is so lovely. The kids LOVED the Disney Store. Sophie loves “Hot Dog” (her name from Mickey Mouse…she loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse). She just wanted to hold and love on that stuffed Mickey so much. So cute!
Once again I have like no pictures of my parentals. But they really were here and we had a great time.
Just about 2 weeks ago we got back from a week long trip to visit Ryan and Kara in Idaho. I really love it there. My kids had a great time and I was overjoyed to have a week of training for my 1/2 marathon on flat ground. We did a lot of fun things and I have about one million photos. So here it goes…
Our first adventure was Monkey Bizness. To sum it up, Sophie was in heaven and showed us that she is a real dare devil. Jack was terrified of the big slide and really only started to cheer up when he found this rope swing. And sweet little Isaac was spooked by everything. I thought that big slide was so much fun. I felt like a kid again.
Next we went to the Old Idaho State Penitentiary. I thought it was so fascinating. Prison life is so sad. It is really tragic that people make such stupid decisions and end up in a place like that. It seems like the most depressing place on earth.
Here are our best shots of the cousin photo shoot. Someday maybe we’ll get a good one. Someday…
One morning we spent at the YMCA pool. The kids had the time of their little lives. I think Jack could have played there all day. Sophie spent the morning as a little boy since I didn’t have a swimsuit in her size yet. Pretty funny.
Our last fun stop was another play place for the kiddos. Jack surprised me when he wrote hot and stop on the chalkboard by himself. I don’t even know how smart he really is until he pulls stuff like that. Isaac’s love for balls is unprecedented. He spent at least 75% of the time there shooting the ball through the hoop. And Sophs loved the slides and riding on the tractor.
The rest of our days were spent at home. Jack built one impressive tower. Sophie and Isaac loved to pull all the cushions off the couch and play with the balls. All the kiddos loved watching the music scenes from the movie Rio. And the adults were so excited for bedtime so we could play games and eat ice cream. So, so fun. Thanks for such a fun time Ry and Sister B. Let’s play again soon!
