What's in the laundry today?

Not my laundry room, but isn't it cute?

Remember my last laundry post? Well I've topped it, big time.

Today when I pulled the clothes out of the washing machine and loaded them into the dryer I found our mp3 player!

And when I pulled the same load out of the dryer
I found Julia's watch!


PS I can't believe it but they are both still working!!!

Bike ride to the lake

We are so glad that our 8 inches of snow from last week have melted!!!
Saturday was one of those perfect Spring days.
We decided to ride our bikes on the Provo River Parkway down to Utah Lake.
The trail was around 8 miles.

This part of the trail had tons of bridges. It was nice being able to go under the traffic and not worry about busy streets! Though it did slow us down a bit-- the kids preferred to walk their bikes on the steep hills going into and coming out of the under-bridge areas.

We found a beautiful spot to stop and have lunch.

Exploring underneath one of the bridges.

It was wonderful seeing signs of Spring everywhere!

Towards the end of the trail there are lots of open fields and pastures.

And we finally made it to the lake!

Spring, we are so glad that you are here!

Monsters vs Aliens

The kids are on Spring Break this week and
since the weather hasn't cooperated
we decided to go see a movie-- Monsters vs Aliens in 3D.

Wearing 3D glasses and ready for the movie to start!

It was a fun movie, with great 3D effects.

I liked that they didn't have stuff "flying" toward you all the time

since that gets kind of annoying.

The kids loved it!

Build a Bear

Julia has a thing for stuffed animals. She loves them. They are everywhere in her room. She plays with them all the time, and she has to sleep with them at night.

So it comes as no surprise that she wanted to go to Build a Bear. We've gotten out of it in the past, but she had saved her money and she finally talked us into taking her.

She chose a dog, one that they had just barely gotten stocked.

Cleaning and brushing her dog

Getting him dressed-- she chose a soccer uniform

Giving him a name and getting his birth certificate (she named him Rocky)

Julia and Rocky
She loved it!!!

My sister Tamara was in town last week with her family.
My kids have so much fun when their cousins are here!

Rebekah, Ethan, Sanja, Amie, and Julia

They've been here twice in the past 4 weeks-- David's grandpa passed away in March, and then his grandma passed away in April so they had to come for both funerals. It was sad for them to be here for funerals, but we were still happy to see them!

The kids had fun staying up late and having sleepovers, watching movies, playing outside, and making up silly jokes. We love cousins!!

Easter pics

So I guess we are slacker parents and didn't color eggs with the kids.
Luckily they did some at Grandma's house!

And of course I had to post the kids in their Easter outfits.

Hope you all had a wonderful day!
