Kite Festival at Sandy Downs...

We took the kids to The Kite Festival today and had a great time. Only in Idaho Falls does it snow one day and then we have a kite festival the next. It was a little chilly but luckily the wind cooperated. We attempted to fly Matt's airplane (of course we have an airplane kite) but in the end it was Parker's Lightning McQueen car kite that was the easiest. The kids had fun eating hot dogs and watching all the neat kites flying around us.

Cooper Turned 2 on April 20 and because it was such a busy day. He got glazed donuts as his birthday treat; which he quite enjoyed because he had 3 of them. My aide, Linda, gave him a toy truck and he got a bug catching kit from his daycare. We had dinner at 5 Guys Hamburgers and he was just as happy as could be. We sure love this little guy though. He is so much fun to have around.

We celebrated Easter with our neighbors, The Wards, and had an egg hunt. Matt got a remote control airplane for his birthday so he took that out. He also got some rockets and shot them off for the boys to watch. It was a beautiful day to be outside. Scotlyn had just finished up her week of plays at church. She was in 5 shows of the musical "Arise" at Calvary this past week. What a wonderful Sunday it was.

Only 5 more weeks until "Summertime" arrives for us and then it's 3 months of playing...Yay!!!

Birthdays & Mini Trips

Parker Magnus turned 3 on March 7. I turned thirtysomething on March 6. We had a Baskin Robins ice cream cake for a treat.

Sarah and I decided to take the kids to Jackson on a Saturday when we had nice weather.

Matt and I drove to Arizona for Spring Break this year. He had classes so Scotlyn and I drove to Tucson to spend some time with my Aunt Billie. We visited Sonora Canyon, swam, and had lots of fun. She was also watching Nathan & Lucas Baker, some friends kids of hers. We dropped the boys off in Hurricane to spend the week with all the grandparents. It was about a 15 hour drive from our home to our hotel in Arizona.
