Oliver Plays TeeBall

Oliver LOVES tee ball and has been really excited to play every game and at every practice. He also wears his cape to most games. Today he decided to be Superman during his game. He is getting pretty good at hitting the ball! And who doesn’t love seeing Oliver in a cape running the bases?…

April What We Do

Oliver had his legos in time out for a little while, so he rediscovered some old toys – like this fun cap gun he got for this birthday. Here he is posing for me, goober! Elora has been learning about rocks in school, so we got out her rock finding kit she got for her…

Earth Day Festival and New Bakery!

Elora got to perform at the Earth Day Festival in Kanab this year. We got there a little early and started a scavenger hunt that the kids could finish to earn a prize. Oliver got to meet Smokey the Bear! He was the only kid brave enough to go meet him. Elora looks mad, but…

Easter in Brian Head

To prepare for Easter, we decided to make Rice Krispy Easter Eggs. I saw the idea on a commercial on the Food Network. There were little candies hidden inside, which the kids thought was pretty cool. The we packed up and headed to Brian Head. They have an Easter festival and it was the closing…

Super Short Arizona Visit

We drove down to Arizona for the weekend the week before Easter so we could go to the Easter pageant at the Mesa Temple. On the way down we stopped at Glen Canyon Dam. Marion LOVES the bridge, so we got out and walked on it so she could see the dam better. I like…

Conference Time!

We had General Conference in April, a chance to listen to the prophet and church leaders give inspired council. I love conference time, and the kids are beginning to love it too. It is still challenging for them to sit through a lot of speakers, so I prepared a lot of activities for them. We…

St. George Fun

Chris went out of town and my sister Lisa was supposed to come visit in March, but had to cancel at the last minute. I had already told the kids that we were going to St. George to go to the museum, so we decided to take them down to St. George even though Auntie…

What We Do – March Edition

Oliver got a little candy maze kit for his birthday from his friend Warren and was so excited to put it together. He helped use the hammer and the glue and everything. Finished! Complete with candy. We tried skittles but they kept getting smooshed. Oliver thought it was funny to eat the smooshed ones. We…

Elora’s Binoculars

Elora’s gift from me and Chris didn’t arrive in time for her party, so she opened it later as soon as it came in the mail.  Elora asked for one thing this year – binoculars! So we got her binoculars and a bird watching guide. She loves them both and right away started looking for…

Elora’s Birthday Party

Elora wanted a fancy tea party for her birthday, so I made a lot of finger foods, some strawberry lemonade, and got ready for a bunch of kids to come over! We picked some of the beautiful blossoms off the trees to decorate the table. I love the spring! After snacking, the kids made fancy…

East Rim Hike with Nana, Grampy, and Grandma

The last day of Nana and Grampy’s visit we went on a little hike in Zion. It was a beautiful sunny day and I took them to the East Rim trail. I haven’t hiked there in years, but I remembered that it was a nice trail that would be good for hiking without having to…
