Hansel and Gretel

Saturday evening my mom got all the girls tickets to go to the ballet Hansel and Gretel. It was a really cute play and a fun evening out!

St. George

We went to St. George for the holiday weekend. It was our first trip out of town with all the kids since the boys were born! The weather was so nice and warm. I'm ready for Spring to come. We had a fun time getting out of town for a few days. Chris and Rick golfed at Coral Canyon, the girls did a little shopping and we went to the pool swimming a couple of times! Our kids weren't very happy most of the time. None of them slept good at night, Ava and Griffin had runny noses and coughs and Ava screamed half the way home in the car. Traveling with all the little ones is quite a challenge!

Crew just hanging out being happy outside!

This is how Griffin was most of the trip--crying!

Rice Cereal Disaster

I attempted to feed the boys rice cereal for the first time, which was a mistake. First off Ava spilled it all over the floor before I even added water to it. Griffin wanted nothing to do with sitting in the bumbo seat and eventually arched his way out screaming, in the meantime Crew starts crying because Griffin is, and neither of them would even eat any cereal in their mouth. They both just sat there crying. Then I look over to see that Ava has the bowl and spoon and she is eating it all. Go figure, at least someone likes it. Maybe i'll try it again sometime down the road!

Griffin sat after with this look on his face not moving a muscle for fifteen minutes as if we had done something awful to him.

After their bath they sat on the couch looking like they had just really been through something together! I often find them holding hands now whenever they are laying or sitting by each other. It's pretty cute!

Baby Lambs

A woman who Sue works with is raising baby lambs in Springville so she invited the kids out to see them. They were cute and the kids loved watching them!

Makenna and Blake

We got hot chocolate and a donut after being outside in the cold!
