When the weather finally started turning a corner we were itching to get out and be outside! Chad and I were also asked to be a Ma & Pa on the stake trek this year. So we had to break in our new shoes and find a few hikes to take our trek family on. Yes there's still snow up in our mountains but it was so refreshing to get out in nature! One reason I like where we live is this right here! Hiking and camping in my back yard!

No it wasn't just a great day...it was a MAJOR craft day that I, as the enrichment coordinator, was in charge of! I thought at first oh yes this will be fun and easy enough. WRONG! There is SOO much work that goes into these ward craft days so I was really glad to have a supportive husband who helped me for hours in the garage cutting, sanding and edging block after block to make this a successful night!
I'm getting up there in years! 8 away from 40!!! I wasn't expecting too much for my birthday because Chad would be working a little late and we were struggling to make plans to go out but I was surprised when I woke up to donuts from Chad on the counter!
That evening Chad didn't have to work too extra late and our friends decided they could meet us for dinner so we went to Red Robin ....YUMMMM! And just ate and chatted. It was a perfect day. Sometimes the simple things are the best things. I'm grateful to this man who treats me so well and chose me to be his wife. I'm one lucky (AND BLESSED) lady.
Yuck! This spring weather has not been fun with lots of snow and rain still! So we put our Groupons from mom from Christmas to helping us have some indoor fun! First up was mini golf and bowling! This was a really fun course and the kids loved the lights and fun creatures.
Brielle tried so hard but eventually figured out she just needed to get the ball in the hole...with the club or not!
We had yet another groupon to The Bounce House in Provo with our friends the Eash's. So we took off on a blustery day to go have some fun. They had tons of cute stuff and even the adults got in on it!
Carter started flag football for his second year and he is in the Chiefs team with some good buddies. He's been thriving and learning and improvingg so much. He played alot of defense at the beginning of the year and pulled lots of flags and worked his way up to playing offense and scoring a touch down often when he got the ball. Sure proud of this boy!
These kids were so well behaved and we love them to death! You never would have known there were 10 kids under our roof for 24 hours! It was so much fun!
