Happy Easter

Happy Easter!  We did all the usual things... coloring eggs, easter egg hunt, and that wacky bunny brought the girls baskets full of treats.  Sophie's was hanging on kitchen light fixture, and Lucy's was in the cereal cupboard.

Lucia made this sign for the Easter bunny on the paper that we covered the table with. She used her "fancy letters."

Ready for the hunt.

There were 28,000 eggs at the egg hunt!  It took Sophie a while to get the hang of it, but in the end she had a full basket.

Easter morning frozen waffles... because that's how I roll.

Stinky Face

Here is a video of Lucia reading "I Love You, Stinky Face" (thanks for the book, Dylan!) to her class.    This was a special occasion for her that was part of a behavior reward where she got to bring a book from home and share it with the class.  She loves to read and she finishes chapter books like the Magic School Bus series in a day or two.

All Dance, All the Time

The girls have had a fun week with Grandma Lauren and Grandpa Bob visiting.  They are on their way back to Wisconsin, and I also took advantage of their visit to take a  work trip to San Diego!

Unfortunately it was kind of a cold and rainy week in SLC,
but they passed the time with a lot of dance parties.

Where a kid can be a kid...

Will this month ever end?  Both of the girls got some sort of virus at the end of our Arizona vacation.  It turned into ear infections, a nasty cough, and possibly pneumonia for Sophie.  She's finally turned the corner yesterday, and we're spending (hopefully) one more day at home.

She did this for days... but without a complaint.  She had a fever between 101-103 for five days and she just snuggled and slept and watched shows. She's such a sweetheart. 

Today she's my co-worker, watching Daniel Tiger while I finally update the blog and try to get some work done.

On the weekend Lucia went to Khapri's 5th birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese.  They played this driving game for ages.  One of them would steer and the other was in charge of the gas pedal.

AZ '14

We're back in Arizona for Havasu 2014  There's a new skate park in town this year, which the girls think is pretty fun.  Lucia's been learning lots of new tricks on her scooter.   We've also been spending lots of time in the pool and playing with our improvised sand box.

Clean Eating

Happy birthday to me! John took Lucia to Target (my favorite) to pick out a present. He told her she could pick out anything from the whole store. Whatever she thought I would love to get for my birthday, anything at all. For two days she could hardly contain the excitement of keeping it a secret. And what did she choose out of all that is glorious and awesome in Target?

Behold the picnic table cover.  It includes bench covers!  We'll be picnicking in style this summer.

And I have to share this one-- meet our new cousin Ryder!  Son of Jamie and Dustin and all around gorgeous baby.  Congratulations!  We can't wait to meet him.

Get Your Wings

Lucia just finished up the Snowbird Adventure Team --  six weeks of ski lessons at Snowbird.  The results are mixed.  Some days she was giddy with the fun and adrenaline, and other times she says she doesn't like it.  So we'll have to see if she becomes a skier or not.  But at least now she has the basics down.

This is Lucia with her Adventure Team class.  She in the back row, blue jacket.
Here she is on the chair lift.
Sophie wanted to try skiing too, so John took her up.  She was done after one run.  Maybe next year!
