Two year old boys are my favorite animal species.
There's just no family resemblance in our family at all.... hmmm....

|The worlds coolest dad (aka Aaron) set up a trucks course with the extra firewood for all of the little (and not so little as you can see from the picture) to play on. It was a big hit!!|
|Sleepy tent face|
|Potty shot. Ha.|
|Cute boys hiking after the campout|
|Silly hiking boys|
|I even did a quadrouple French braid in her wet hair.... something we'd been wanting to do for a while. End result...|
|We took all the French braids out in the morning and she had this pretty curly hair for her big girl day|

Izzy played a little game during Sunday School last week: "How many faces can I make in 2 minutes?" (While mom takes a million pictures on her iPhone... during Sunday School...) We can't resist this face!!

Happy Father's Day to three great dads in my life!
#1 - To my Daddy - Thanks for giving me your energy and contagious zest for life. I couldn't be more grateful for your genetics!! And thanks for showing me how to love my kids fiercely - just how you love me. :)

The weekend before Izzy was born we went to see the dolphin habitat at the Mirage. It is such a cool facility and it was so fun to watch the trainers work with the dolphins. As a research facility they don't do "shows" with the dolphins, they just bring the trainers out to exercise the dolphins and we all get to watch. It is really fun. We even had a trainer who sat and talked with our kids one-on-one at the edge of the pool, teaching them all about dolphins, while she worked with her dolphin. It was so fun! Aaron and I actually learned a lot too. Needless to say, Emery has big plans to be a dolphin trainer someday. That and Rapunzel at DisneyLand! It is also the home of Sigfried and Roy's Secret Garden, so we got to see all of the tigers, white tigers, lions, panthers, etc. too.

|We could have watched this guy prowl around all day. He was intense!|

I realize this is really late... but this is my journal and Easter needs to make an appearance!
My best friend grilled me last year for not being very festive for Easter. She was right!! It is a pretty important holiday and, most importantly, gives us a chance to teach our kids about Jesus Christ. Easter was fun this year and we did lots of things to celebrate!
|Had some friends over for an Easter BBQ. I tried my hand at cake decorating. Not bad, eh?|
|Made these cute little nests to give to friends. Aren't they adorable?|
|Decorated eggs, of course!|
|Silly Van and dad faces.|
|We had 6 kids hunting so the dads hid about 100 eggs. They had so much fun finding them!|
|Van showing us what was in his eggs. He had a hard time focusing on finding more than one egg. He'd find one, open it, eat it, and then go look for more.|
|Jersey and Van love each other.|
|Cute girls sitting on a big rock.|

|And look! Izzy was there too!!|

|These are my attempt at 1 week photos. Not too bad!! :) (If she looks concerned that she's in the basket, she was. We only got a few pictures before she decided she was done in the basket.)|
