April

6:36 am by Janelle. Filed under: News

We have been enjoying all this warm weather lately! At the moment though, the “warm” spring weather has been more on the “hot” side…which I am not totally ready for yet. this week is supposed to be up to 98 degrees!!! Seriously?! I have been running with some girls from church and we signed up for a half marathon with is on Saturday ..so with this 90+ degree weather, I think I might die. Almost literally…my body does not mix exercise and heat very well. So we’ll see if I get to cross the finish line on my legs or in the first aid wagon :)

We’ve spent a lot of our time lately out and about or in the back yard. Dallin is now walking all over the place and LOVES to be doing anything outside. He’s turning into our little independent man. If he doesn’t want to do something he will either whack you and say, “no, dont’!” or turn all limp noodle on you. He’s funny…now when he is one…maybe not when he is a little older!

Well, here are a few of the goings on in April for us!

More Dallin playing…he’s the victim of my picture taking lately since he’s a little bit more willing than the others!

Grandma and grandpa came to visit a couple weeks ago and we had fun playing and showing them the temple!

We went on a little hike by Folsom lake yesterday and it was beautiful! Wish we could have hung out there all night!

I Scream You Scream

11:55 am by Janelle. Filed under: News

The other day I gave the two older kids ice cream cones and thought, “why not give Dallin one too?” He obviously loved it! Who doesn’t love an ice cream cone?! If you really don’t, I’m not really sure what to say to you right now….

Somehow, to me, ice cream tastes much better in a cone. Dallin agreed and you can see the dirt on his elbows from all his falling, but he’d catch himself with his elbow so his ice cream didn’t touch the ground. I’d do the same :)

Visiting the cousins!

11:24 am by Janelle. Filed under: News

A little vacation was needed so I loaded up the kids and went down to my brother and sister-in-laws house in San Jose. This was actually in February…and it’s April, but whatever. Some schools around here get presidents week off, so that’s what happened here! We had so much fun just hanging out with the cousins! We ate amazing tacos (not pictured here) which I still think about and crave (my mind often revolves around food.) We went to Henry Cowell State Park and saw huge redwoods, rode scooters, and played, played, played!

We will have to do this again really soon!

The girls “brushing their teeth” or eating toothpaste…

A huge stump that had so many rings it dated back to Christ’s birth!

Inside the visitors center the kids got to make an animal foot print book. It was really cute.

Happy Easter 2013

Here we are on Easter… We had nice day at church and then headed up the the mountains to spend time with family. A great way to celebrate the blessing of the atonement and resurrection of Christ!
