Hangin out at the wilkinson center My hips still fit through the "co-ed" statue. Thank goodness!
We just returned from a wonderful weekend in Provo Utah. Yes, I said Provo Utah, and it was the trip of my dreams! How can Provo Utah be the trip of ones dreams you ask? Because after starting my college education 13 years ago I have finally graduated from BYU. A long awaited dream come true. I have about a zillion and one pictures to post, but for now I will include the traditional cougar picture, plus some of our family on campus. The rest will follow soon!
Easter Sunday is definitely one of my favorite days of the year. Dying Easter eggs, and Easter egg hunts are fun, but when Sunday comes we put all of that aside and think of our Savior. I love the feeling of renewal that I always feel on Easter Sunday. Renewed hope for the future, and renewed faith in Jesus Christ. I love dressing the boys in new Easter duds, and then explaining why wearing something new in the colors of Spring can remind them of Christs resurrection. I love going to church and hearing the music of Easter, and feeling the sense of sadness at Christs death followed by the sense of peace that comes as I contemplate His resurrection. I love Easter Sunday! I hope that yours was as wonderful as ours.
We had a lot of fun preparing for Easter this year. We dyed Easter eggs, made "birds nest" cupcakes, and had a very fun Easter egg hunt, even if it was cold and rainy. You have to love Colorado. Easter egg hunts wearing parkas and carrying umbrellas. We still had a great time, and the kids enjoyed their loot.
It has been a long day! When Logan got up this morning he was acting funny. He absolutely refused to put any weight on his right foot. We went to the Doctor, went through a blood draw and x-rays, and now we are waiting. I am emotionally exhausted. Jake and Brayden asked if they could play in the backyard. I was delighted! After about half an hour I was thinking, wow, they are getting along so well! About half an hour after that the back door opened. Jake peeked in and I could see that he was muddy. Then he stepped in along with Brayden, and I could see that the two of them were completely naked. Upon questioning why that was they informed me that they had been taking a mud bath, and that it felt great! WOW! You have to love boys. I'll like them even better when they are clean again. I just hope they survive that long!
I couldn't help but laugh when we woke up Monday morning. Spring Break! It really wasn't looking much like spring though. The snow was blowing, the kids were whining, and I was laughing. It figures that the kids finally get out of school and then can't leave the house because it is cold and snowy. We did have some family fun in the snow. We built a snowman, and had a very fun snowball fight, even if it was boys against girls-totally unfair! Unfortunately I didn't realize that Logan had put his sticky fingers all over my camera lens until after I took all the pictures. Oh well, you get the idea. It might even look kind of artsy, like I used a filter or something. Anyway, we are looking forward to some warmer weather, and praying that we don't have a blizzard when we drive to Utah in two weeks.
