April 2017

What did we do in April?... Alexa and Bennett had soccer games every Saturday. They both enjoy playing. Steve and I spent a lot of time helping Ruth get her house remodeled so she could move to St. George. The house turned out great and we hope she enjoys living in town! My mom and Steve were great to take care of the kids while I went to California for a girls trip for three days! Life is good!

Girls Trip Newport Beach 2017

This was such a fun trip! I love Newport Beach!

On Thursday afternoon we chilled on the beach for a while. For dinner we ate at Ruby's out on the end of the pier. We then stayed up late playing games and talking! We rented a large beach house and all 21 of us stayed there!

On Friday, after a yummy crepe breakfast, we took a picture with all 21 of us on the boardwalk. We then headed to the Balboa Island ferry. Some of us rented cruisers and rode them all around the island. The houses there are to die for! The bike ride was so fun! That afternoon we spend several hours at the beach again. The weather was so beautiful!! We went to dinner at the port and then rented a 9 man bike and a 6 man bike. We had the funnest time riding down the boardwalk at sunset to get donuts. We sang songs and screamed and laughed. It was a blast! That night we stayed up late talking and snacking.

Saturday morning we headed home... until next time!

Easter Weekend

We had a really fun Easter Weekend! On Saturday morning the kids found their Easter baskets from the Easter Bunny. We then went down to the elementary school for our neighborhood egg hunt. There were so many kids, it was great! Later, we went on a hike in Snow Canyon to the petroglyph slot canyon. After that, we colored eggs, had another hunt, and had a BBQ at our house. The weather was so perfect! It was great to have the extra family in town!

Zion - Many Pools

We went on a beautiful hike in Zion called Many Pools. You go through a tunnel and follow a riverbed. The kids loved it!

March 2017

Spring was in full bloom in March! It was beautiful! We were sick a lot this month. Colds and tummy aches. We had spring break but just stuck around home. 

Alexa has started her first season of soccer. She is enjoying it and is very fast and aggressive! She is a great big sister and plays well with her brothers. She learned how to make scrambled eggs and now wants to make them all the time for us and she thinks she's ready to be on Master Chef Jr!

Bennett got his teeth fixed this month and is glad to be able to chew again. He started soccer and is loving it. He's made several goals each game so far. We are working on obedience with him, but he is sweet and fun most of the time :)

Caden had a visit to instacare to get staples on a cut in his head. He also burnt his hand pretty bad later in the month. Not to place any blame, but Steve was watching the kids both times Caden got hurt! Caden has also started throwing some pretty intense tantrums... I guess he is two, after all. Everyone comments about how he talks so well.

We had some nice warm days in March. The kids get really anxious to put their suits on and play in the water.

We went to a new park in town a couple of times.

 Alexa wanted a spider in her hair for crazy hair day!
 Playing miniature golf when Nana was in town looking for houses.

 Riding down our hill.
Washing their hands together after making a mess painting. 
 Pickle ball and s'mores with family in town!

I chopped my hair! 
 Our back yard with grass!

 Bennett got crowns on all of his molars and now he can chew normally!
 Took the kids to Fiesta Fun.

 More water play!

Caden loving his bath!
 Bennett loves soccer!

 We have hundreds of petroglyphs on the mountain right behind our house!
