Kid Hike

We met up with some friends to hike the Santa Rosa plateau, last time we were there it was all brown and crispy but this time everything was GREEN and beautiful! Brendan stayed home due to a sprained ankle but the other 3 had a great time.

 a couple moms left before we took this picture, it was a fun group!
 There was a lizard on a rock. It was quite exciting :>)
 There was a lot of hand holding and skipping going on.

Beautiful day!

We did a few fun things leading up to Easter. Our community put on an Easter event, and we got to meet the bunny. 
 They all got balloon swords which was exciting...
 especially when the bunny wanted to get in on the action.
There were glitter tattoos and bounce houses which are still a hit for them!
 We also went to the annual flashlight egg hunt. There's always kids who can't find the right number of eggs and who fall and cry, but my kids still love it :>) 

 We dyed eggs too but that may or may not have happened the following week...we were busy playing with friends instead :>) Easter morning the bunny brought them some candy and books! And we spent a lot of time talking about our Savior and what He did for us!
 Hard to resist cute Easter outfits!

Weekend with the Nielsens

The Nielsens were in town over their break, and we had fun hanging out with them! We met up for yummy pizza with a whole lot of kids.
 We went to the drive in to see Zootopia (but I didn't take pictures! My kids were being such brats that night!). We also went to the beach and it was a BEAUTIFUL day. Rich and Em are good little buddies.
 these 3 had such a good time playing together!

 And of course my kids like to dig. 
 A lot :>)
 Always good to see these fun ladies!

Just Because...

These girls still like to cram themselves into the little kid carts at the grocery store. They won't fit for much longer, but they sure look cute!

Cub Activity

Carson is pretty darn excited to be in cub scouts. He and Ethan both enjoyed their first activity!

 One of their favorite stations was the rain gutter regatta.
 They also loved finding the treasure with their compass.  So grateful for scouts and all the awesome things my boys are learning!

School activities

We've been able to go to a couple events at school lately. All the kids insisted on chasing down the Cat at Dr. Seuss night for a picture, but then Whitney got super shy :>) They enjoyed their free books and cake though, and we had fun with Grandma and Grandpa Gray there! And Sabrina's pajamas are crazy but I am picking my battles!
 We also had a good time at Muffins with Mom. Love these kids!

Carson's Baptism

I can't believe Carson is old enough to get baptized! He has been really excited about it for a long time. Gwen and Kat were baptized the same day.
 Love these handsome guys in their matching ties!

 We had LOTS of family who were able to join us! And friends that feel like family!

 Afterwards we came back to our house for lunch. There was just over 50 people so it was a lot, but we ordered Submarina so it was delicious and easy :>)

 Carson's primary teacher Brother Wilson came, Carson loves him!

 It was also Rich's birthday, what a way to celebrate!
 these boys have so much fun together
