Saturday Adventure!

We started our Spring Break with a fun-filled Saturday! We decorated sugar cookies in the morning with Hadley and Kenzlie. Clay, Keesha, Jeremie and Breck were our taste testers! They were yummy delicious!

Hads was very focused frosting her cookie.

I think Kenzlie had some help from mom.

Courtney and her masterpiece. Good job Courts!

Don't they look tasty??

Conner has been infatuated with In-N-Out Burger for several months and has been begging for us to take him there. I promised him over Spring Break we would take him there. So, Clay and the kids and I made the trek to Draper for lunch at In-N-Out. It was pretty good, my favorite was the fresh cut french fries. They reminded me of the french fries that we make when we are camping.
Conner was on cloud nine! Clay was a little embarrased that I was taking pictures in the restaurant. He thought we looked like a bunch of tourists! LOL! I couldn't help it, this was a big thing for Conner and I HAD to document the experience with photos.
Court and her hamburger. She is so adventurous!
Chef Conner, I hope it was everything you hoped it would be and more!

All smiles! I think our first stop was a success!

After lunch, Clay really wanted to take the kids to The Living Planet Aquarium. I'm so glad he suggested going there because it was amazing! There was so many cool things to see! Especially Court on a frog!? What a crazy girl!

We saw perana,


cute kids,
this little fella,
jelly fish,
Clay's dinner,
and Nemo! I highly recommend visiting this place. There is so much to see!! I loved it!
Since Conner got to visit In-N-Out, I thought we better do something special for Courtney too. We all benefited from In-N-Out but Courtney deserved a stop just for her, Build A Bear Workshop!! She picked out this adorable bunny...
got her all stuffed up,
gave her a heart, with a kiss from Courtney,
gave her a bath,

and then got her dressed! Look at those cute little underwear! I couldn't resist.
All done! Cute as can be!!! A little spendy, but totally worth it!!

We had such a wonderful time together! I sure wish we had more opportunities to do things like this! Priceless!!!

My Valentine

Ok so I'm more than a little behind posting about Valentines Day, but I was surprised by my honey with this "love"ly package! I thought we had agreed that we weren't giving each other anything considering our lack of funds. But I was pleasantly surprised to get this! The wife to one of the guys that Clay works with was putting these Valentines gifts together and offered to make one for me. It was full of Mary Kay product, a necklace and some chocolates! All of my favorites!! Thanks for making my Valentine's Day great!

April Fools

I took these flower pictures almost two weeks ago intending on posting about how excited I am for spring to finally be here. I love seeing the colorful flowers peeking from beneath the ground, just gives me butterflies of what is to come. I am so looking forward to warmer weather! Driving in the car with the windows rolled down and the sun roof open, camping trips, mowing the lawn, sunshine, kids riding their bikes, washing the car, pulling weeds... ok I don't really like pulling weeds but I'm a little desperate.

And then..... yesterday this lovely storm rolled in and brought with it a ton of white crap!!! These photos are right outside my window at work! Nice!! So much for spring flowers and egg hunts outside for Easter! And Spring Break starts Monday for the kids, maybe we should call it Winter Break instead! This is NO April Fools joke!!
