Chickens and Bunnies and Bears!

That's right! Baby Animal Days had bears this year! The kids were super excited about the bears. Then they were super disappointed when they realized that they couldn't hold them! The bears were very sleepy and very cute! This is the best bear picture I got. Look at his little tongue hanging out! Don't you just want to squeeze him?
As always there were chicks and ducks and bunnies to cuddle. They pet the cows and sheep and ponies. And Mommy fell in love with the cutest little piggy you've ever seen! If Daddy hadn't been there we probably would have come home with Little Miss Potbelly!

The pony rides are always a favorite! Isaac was a little disappointed that he had to take off his cowboy hat and wear a helmet instead. I have to say he still made a great little cowboy! Maggie's face turns to sheer delight when she sits on the saddle. She's still a little nervous about it though and wants her daddy by her side. Daisey always looks natural on a horse. Just watching her ride make me want to move to the country and buy a ranch. Then I decide that sounds like a lot of work and riding horses once or twice a year will have to do.
As we were leaving I had to snap this picture because this is what Spring in Utah looks like. Snow and flowers....both at the same time. Pretty huh?

Blog Slacker Catch Up

Yes, I've been bad. I've neglected my blog baby and I apologize.
So, today is what I call "the last 3 month blog catch up". Enjoy!

I turned 30! That's really, really, really old...just ask my kids!
Look what Robert and my dad made me for my birthday! Fantabulous!

100 Day at school, 100 hair clips, 100 dots
Happy Valentine's Day!

Val's Happy Birthday Sock/Gum wreath!

We went to visit my sweet Grandma Roush in the hospital. She was in a terrible car accident but she's a trooper and is improving every day.
We love you Grandma!

After nearly 3 years of waiting our good friends, Brynn and Eric finally got the call that their adoption process was final. Their family is complete at last and we're so happy for them!

Welcome home Omar and Marisol!

Happy April Fool's Day! The kids like to play jokes all day long! I like to fool them with food and this year we had chicken nuggets, corn with mashed potatoes and gravy? April Fools!It's ice cream and caramel!

Mother Nature's April Fool's Prank! After a week of beautiful Spring weather we woke up to this!

Our niece, Kristi married her sweetheart, Taylor! She looked absolutely beautiful! I don't have a picture of the happy couple yet. But, I do have a picture of the clock we gave them. :)


We thought it was about time we traded our little Neon in for something bigger for our growing kids. So we sold Celine Neon and bought a Suburban. It was kind of a bittersweet moment when I watched our Neon drive away but we're enjoying the Suburban.

Look who got glasses! Doesn't he look distinguished?

Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" was awesome!
