Fieldtrip with Noah's class

I went on a field trip with Noah's class to the Dinosaur park in Odgen.  I had taken the boys a few years ago and thought it would be fun to go back.  We had a fun morning, we would of stayed a little longer but we had another kid with us so we had to get home for him to be picked up.

Mothers Day

We went down to mom and Myron's for Mothers day dinner.  I wasn't sure how I was going to feel I had been in bed horribly sick Friday and then Saturday I had to cancel my mothers day pedicure with Korie and  Chelsea cause I still wasn't feeling great.  We had a simple dinner of lasagna, Caesar salad, and bread sticks.  The boys got me a new hanging basket for outside and each of the boys had made me a few things at school.

I wanted a picture with all my kids, they surprisingly cooperated.

I wanted to get a picture with mom and the boys and while these were being taken, Caitlin decided to come and stand with us in the picture.  It was the cutest thing ever!

Aaron and Noah were matching

Ashton and Leland were also matching,  I thought it was funny how the boys were matching

I wanted to get a picture with me, mom, and Caitlin.  Ashton wanted to be in the picture too

Grandma and Caitlin, she  loves to swing, she could do it all day if we let her

Easter 2014

So we had Easter dinner at Mom and Myron's Sunday afternoon.  We got up and the Easter bunny had left some baskets for everyone and we had fun playing with the new toys.

She left these ears on for a good 20 minutes or so, I thought that was pretty impressive.

She loved her new pink toothbrush.  She loves daddy's so much the Easter Bunny thought she needed one of her own to chew on.

The boys checking out their baskets.  Noah loved his Fart gun and

We headed down for lunch and got to have more yummy food

We also did our annual egg bashing contest.  The little boys look forward to this every year.  This year I ended up the winner, ya me!  I thought it was cute Myron's dad got up and played with us.

Caitlin just wanted to play  with all the eggs

Grandma was teaching Caitlin how to throw the eggs down the hill.

Annual Easter Egg Hunt

Mom had her annual Easter Egg hunt Saturday before Easter, the boys were pretty excited about it and kept talking about it for days.  This year our friends the Jones family came so it was nice to have some friends there that we knew and that the kids knew rather than just the ones from mom's ward.  When we got there Myron was putting out the last of the candy so Jason and Leland went to help.

Caitlin ran out there and she was helping herself to eggs left and right.  She managed to get one open and was going to make a mess with the chocolate kiss so I had to take it away from her.  She was not a happy girl about that.

I wanted to get a family picture I always seem to remember at the end of the day when everyone is grumpy and we want to head home.  So I remembered right when we got to mom's house and we tried for a good family picture.  This was the best we could get.  I know it looks like Ashton is laughing but he is actually crying because Noah hit him in the stomach.


I wanted a picture with my brothers I don't think we have many of these.

Dad and Val also came with Megan and her 4 kids so that was nice to see them again. I also got the meet her youngest one who was about 8 months old.

The big group of kids waiting to get to go hunt for all the eggs.

Caitlin's first egg hunt.  She did pretty good, with Jason helping her and telling her what eggs to pick up.

Noah was pretty excited to show off his cameo egg he found.  I did have a new outfit for him to wear but he wasn't having it so I decided not to make a fight about it.

I loved this, Caitlin saw her brothers sitting and going through their baskets so she had to take hers over by them and sit and do the same thing.

After the egg hunt we had lunch and then had an egg roll down the hill and also some egg races.  Then it was time to just hang out.  We had so much fun and the weather was perfect for it.  It did get a little warmer than we had anticipated but we were all loving the sunshine.

Noah was thrilled with his bunny glasses he won from the egg race.

Leland is trying desperately to have Caitlin like him.  She is definitely a mommas girl.  I told Leland to go and get a sucker from my purse and figured that would be a good step for him.  She was thrilled for a minute then she was done with him once again.  Have no fear Leland I am sure one of these days she is going to love her Uncle Leland as much as the boys do.  He also Loves (not) her outfit he hates when I put her in these ruffled pants.  I don't really care though cause they are the cutest things ever!!

We finally left around 3:00 Caitlin was losing it with no sleep so we needed to get home.  She slept the whole way home and then I put her down and she slept for another 1 1/2 so she was one tired girl.  I hope these kids know how lucky they are to have a grandma that loves to do these types of things for them.  We tried to get a picture with grandma and grandpa and the grand kids, but this time Caitlin was not happy about it.  These two are the best Grandparents around, they are so good to my kids and I hope one day they know how lucky they are to have such awesome people in their lives.
