Easter 2013

We had a great Easter as a family this year!  Easter is one of those days when you are actually grateful to have 1:00 church!  We had time that morning for our traditional Easter egg hunt and baskets, to watch "To This End I Was Born" and relax as a family!

Easter Party At G&G Wittke's!

One yearly tradition we always look forward to is the Easter party at Grandma and Grandpa Wittke's house the day before Easter, and this year was no exception!  We had a great egg hunt...

 After dinner Grandma gave each of the grandkids a giant bubble wand, and they had such a great time playing!

 Then came Uncle Mike's favorite part... the dying of the eggs!  Oh how he dreads this favorite Easter tradition... the mess, the mayhem, the stained hands!  To try to appease him this year, we tried out a new method where we put the egg inside a whisk.  I'm not sure that it helped much, but it was fun!


Spring Break!

I LOVE that we get a whole week off of school for Spring Break.  I just wish that Mike could take it off too.       We had a week full of fun!  Emily and David and I took the kids and rode Legacy.  We did a 15 mile ride and I was super impressed with the kids.  Nick even wanted to ride (of course) so I took his bike and the trailer.  He would ride until he was tired and then I'd put his bike in the back of the trailer and strap it in.  It was a little slow but SUPER fun!

Then later that day we took the kids and joined the Bear scouts and went Ice skating!  I haven't been ice skating in 6 years!  It was so fun!  The kids did great and i had so much fun!

THEN (And I don't have pic's) we went to Layton Surf and Swim.  It was SUCH a long day but oh so fun!

This week Ty and Matt also decided that they wanted to ride their bikes to Mike's work and eat lunch with him and then ride home.  I was a little stressed but they had fun and were safe!

Towards the end of the week Mary was heading up to stay in Logan....we couldn'tstay over but decided to go up and play.  We went to the Willow Park Zoo and then went to get Aggie Ice cream!

Then after the Easter party at Mom's (That will be another post) we went to the RSL game!  It was so great! Ovesons and Mom and Don came too!

Spring Time Fun!

I love spring.  I love getting outside and enjoying the sunshine!  It's a time for kite flying, bike riding and yard work:)

I love flying kites.  I am terrible at it but I always enjoy doing it with the kids!  Today was fun but since it was just ME helping the 3 kids it was a little tough.  UNTIL Christiansen's  came by and John helped out:) I love great neighbors!

One of the coolest things this spring was starting to ride with Mary.  I know that she probably isn't overly thrilled but I LOVE it.  I love the time with her. I love that she goes out and rides hard and fast (even though she doesn't think she does) and I love that together we can do anything!  Even when Mary cross chains her bike and falls OFF THE SIDE OF THE TRAIL!  Thank goodness she wasn't hurt!

I got to take Nick and the Preschoolers to the grocery store on a field trip!

We went and watched Danny in his first crit race.

Matt played a lot of Futsol

And we started to rebuild out garden boxes.....UGH....but it will be so nice when its done!  After we worked all day we had a fire with the kids.  I hope to get the yard to a point where I enjoy being in it:)
