9 year anniversary

For our 9 year anniversary, Erin and I went to Vegas. We had a great time ! We ate like a king and queen. We decided to eat wherever we wanted and whatever we wanted. I have to say the eating aspect of the trip was one of my favorite parts. My second part was sleeping in and enjoying the silence. We stayed at the Venetian. One day we just walked all around the Venetian and explored. There is so much to see. From beautiful umbrellas falling from the sky to ivy creatures walking on stilts. During the evening we would find a very appetizing restaurant and then gamble a little or see a show. We saw "Love" and the "Blue Man" show. On another day, Erin took me shopping and let me buy what ever I wanted. We were at an outdoor mall, and the real Dolly Parton was singing. (kinda funny...HUGE boobs!) Erin is so wonderful !! It is such a gift to be in love with the one I love. I love you Erin, you are truly wonderful to me.

The mom's group I go to every Wednesday had an egg hunt at the park. The kids decorated their eggs and then we had one bid "egg hunt". I am so thankful for all the mom's that are my friends. I truly enjoy all the time we spend with each other and all the different conversations we have. You are all such a blessing to me.
I am so thankful that we have this outlet. I am so happy our kids our building such great friendships.

Playdate at Jump it up

The "Mom-ease" group I meet with every week had play date at "Pump it up". All of the kids had fun. It is such a great blessing to be able to rent the place instead of attending it for a party.

Jack's 7th birhtday

I love Jillian. She is such a great friend, mommy and the best party planner I know. She planned a "Star Wars" themed party for Jack. Thank goodness the kids still fit into their "Star Wars" costumes that Grammie Ginger had made from 2 years earlier. Caden, was Luke skywalker. Davin, was Yoda. Timeri, princess Laya. And lastly, Slater, was a storm trooper. It was a great time. Our kids always love spending time with each other. We think they are all pretty special and I know they feel the same in return. Jillian always has taken parties to the next level and adds so much detail to them. Sadly, at this age the parents just drop off the kids... and the kids have no appreciation for all the hard work and time she puts into planning the party. I do Jillian. You are so creative and fun. You are such a blessing to have as a best friend ! I Love you !!

Super play date with Shawn

Timeri and Slater's play date started off being picked up by Gretchen and Shawn. I was unable to go, because Davin was sick on the couch and Caden was on restriction. Gretchen was sweet enough to come get them and take my camera. Thanks Gretch! They went to the park first, then she took them swimming. What a fun day for them!

Kite Day at the park

We went to the park to fly kites. It was a lot of fun. Slater loved it ! He asked, "if I let go, will it go to heaven?" So sweet. Timeri showed no interest in the kite. She had met a little baby that she was playing with that she was more interested in.

St. Patrick's Day

This years St. Patrick' Day started off with the kids waking up to finding the Leprechaun had visited our house. He had stacked the chairs in a pyramid, put the dog cage on top of them with the Leprechaun trap inside of the dog cage. With Slater's froggy caught inside with it. I said "Oh look Davin, you caught froggy". Davin didn't like this at all. He was mad the Leprechaun didn't leave him any candy. Woops! I will have to take note of that for next year. The kids went to school wearing their green. Of course, Caden and Davin didn't want pictures of them at 8 in the morning. Timeri and Slater were ready for the camera and very excited to go to school wearing all green, including their hair.

Santa Rosa Plateau

After my dad finished making the Leprechaun trap we took the kids for an adventure up to the Santa Rosa Plateau. When we first started the hike saw tons of black furry caterpillars crossing the path. It seemed where ever we looked we saw them. Davin started collecting them in a water bottle. Slater was putting them in a tic tac box. After walking and exploring for a while we had a little picnic. We continued on our adventure to find an interesting cactus, a coyote and 2 garter snakes. The kids even found and old Oak tree that they played on for a little while. The hike ended with Davin bringing home new creatures. I told him whatever he did he was not allowed to lose any caterpillars in the car.

Catching the Leprechaun

This year, Davin came home from school several times saying he wanted to build a "Leprechaun Trap" to catch the Leprechaun. I thought it would be fun for my dad to participate in the invention of this trap. At first, my dad laughed and said "He wants to catch what?" Well, they ended up coming up with a pretty good trap. I am sure we will end up catching it ! And Davin will be just delighted, when he has captured a Leprechaun !

The Jumps

I took the boys and Isaac and Samuel to some other jumps today. I am still in shock over Slater doing all the jumps. The most annoying thing today was when Davin decided to not listen to me and thought it would be fun to walk in he mud and get stuck. His shoes literally were lodged and stuck. I was so annoyed, I was happy with the thought of leaving him there for life. Obviously, I rescued him and he is still part of our family ! AGHHHHHHHH BOYS !!!

Hike with Shawn

Timeri and Slater went on a hike with their favorite friend Shawn. The three of them are together so much.... I would say they are like triplets. They enjoyed looking at bugs and making puzzles out of the cracked mud. We love Shawn !

The Bachelor Finale

Here I am with a few of my close girlfriends at the bachelor finale. Amanda went over the top for the get together. We truly felt like we were contestants for the show with all the roses and candles burning. Thank you so much Amanda, you went over the top. And by the way what kind of ending was this year? IT WAS A GREAT GIRLS NIGHT OUT !!
