Happy 16th, Benny!!

My little sister Brynlie turns 16 today! Benny is the youngest of six kids and I am very happy to have her for a little sister. She has many talents and abilities! She plays on both the high school basketball and softball teams, plays the cello, and gets good grades. Above all, she is an awesome girl. She has always helped me with whatever I have asked of her and my kids absolutely love their Aunt Benny!!

If Jack dressed himself.....

....then we would probably never leave the house.

Jammies, snow boots, and a pink princess hat -
what more does a little guy need?

We took Addy and Jack swimming on Saturday because it was such a nice day. The kids had a lot of fun splashing and going out for rides in the deeper water with their dad. Addy has been begging for weeks to go, so she was especially excited. She didn't even get too grossed out when she accidentally inhaled some dead bees after swallowing some water! Ryan also got a nice cut on his forehead, courtesy of the rock Jack found on the pool's steps. Nothing is ever boring when you have kids.

For the past two years, we have been lucky enough to have season passes to Disneyland. The best part of living in Vegas is that we are less than four hours away from the happiest place on earth and, yes, it does make us happy!! Our passes expired the end of March, and with a new baby on the way, we aren't going to renew them - at least for now (wink, wink). So, we decided to try to squeeze in one last weekend and we made it! It was cold, crowded, and exhausting but it was so much fun!!!

Addy and Jack had so much fun that it didn't take long for them to crash at night.

They're so cute when they are sleeping!

Weekend at Disneyland

Saturday, April 5, 2008


We stayed in Vegas for Easter this year and it was a fun weekend. We went to Green Valley Ranch on Saturday for the Easter activities there. We waited in line to see the Easter Bunny, but ended up missing him because he had to leave. The kids still wanted a picture on the Easter Bunny's bench. They both had a lot of fun and were excited to get some bunny ears to wear.

Addison was so excited to wear her new yellow Easter dress!

Our friends Cameron and Kayla and their boys came over for dinner and an Easter egg hunt. There were lots and lots of eggs, and the kids didn't seem to mind that they were hidden in the rocks this year. Addy's bucket was filled to the top!

Even though Jack wasn't feeling well all day, he was still up for going outside to hunt eggs.

We all had a great Easter!
