The family came to town

 Scott turned 29!! My old man :). For his bday weekend my parents, Jake and Kenton, and Kiera and her kids came up. The boys knocked out our sprinkler system in two days. I don't know how we got so lucky, I love my family!! While the boys were working Kiera and I went to Bear World's cub palooza. It had been raining earlier so it wasn't very crowded. The kids had a ball!! Scott was so happy to work on his birthday (really, he was) and we went to Sol Rio for dinner. The night before we went to Diamond Rio and BYUI. And although it SNOWED on his birthday, we had a lovely weekend. (his birthday pics are all on my phone, which will one day be downloaded...)

Just watchin' the bears. Annie has a good roar.

We got to pet the little guys!

Cute Bockholts! Annie's beanie kinda made it :)

Coolest petting zoo. This is as close as Annie would go.

Free unlimited rides with no lines?! Kyla was in heaven.

After a couple rides Annie was done and had fun watching from her stroller. 

Tractor rides from Grandpa!
Diamond Rio. I tested out my camera and then forgot to take more pictures. They were awesome.

"Is this how panties go mom?"
Our house always seems so empty after everyone leaves. But it was fun while it lasted :).

A Day at the Park

The other weekend Lisa and sweet Ava flew into town and we got to play all weekend! One Sunday afternoon we went to the park and Kym documented the evening. Sometimes the best memories are the simplest. 
Cool glasses.

Ava and Annie!

Frisbee golf. We were awesome.

Don't wake Ezra!

Best attempt at cousin shot

They were worn out!

I've figured out how to download pictures I'm back. Hello blogging world! 
Annie is growing like a weed. Is officially not allergic to dairy anymore (is LOVING whole milk). Is a sweetheart with a silly personality. Is a genius (as I'm sure everyone parent thinks about their child). And wonderful. Also spoiled.
Here is our Easter in pictures:
We decided to brave a community Easter egg hunt. Meh. She got four eggs, two of which I gathered so she could pick up later. It might be more fun when she is older and knows how to hurry.

Meeting up with the Christensons for like a minute!
The Easter bunny came!
Whoa, I just figured out how to "add caption" under a picture. cool.

The ball was the highlight!

 Easter was great. We woke up, enjoyed Annie's basket (Scott and I decided our new Easter tradition is to get each other a pair of shoes...?) and were late to church. No fancy cute dressed up pictures. I think there is one on my phone where Annie is crying and missing a shoe and trying to pull off my dress. 
That afternoon the Bosters came over and we dyed eggs, went to the park for a few hours, ate a traditional Easter dinner, went on a walk and then crashed. It was perfect. 
Dyeing eggs in diapers. They had a ball and the weather was GORGEOUS !! Thank you for once, Idaho. 

Easter egg hunt at Iona Park. We put out just a few eggs for Annie and Grant,  but they loved it so much we kept sprinkling more.

Look at those bellies!! Mostly just Annies. hehe.

The "men" liked the swings more then the kids!
