Field Trip to The Zoo

Jax & I got to come with Daylan on his Preschool Class Field Trip to the Zoo. We met up there with the Lamoreaux's & his other Preschool buddies.
....Here we are on the Tram...

Great Minds Think Alike.... Daylan & His buddy Kian
both showed up to the Zoo like this:
What's with little boys and maps? They felt very important
as they showed us which way to go.

1st order of business: The Giraffes
Ducks & Turtles
Can you spot the elephants?
Daylan thought that at any minute the "Dragon" was going to spit out fire...because that's what dragons do ya know!
A wonderful day with wonderful weather & wonderful friends.

♥Valentines Weekend♥

Friday began the School Parties.

...I got to come to join two of the celebrations!

Daylan had a blast as always with Kian @ Preschool.

I taught Kaylea's class how to make
Valentines Heart Mice complete with suckers as the tails.

Saturday was Date Night for us since actual Valentines Day would be on the Sabbath. So I dropped the older 3 kids off at a neighbor's house who was doing a huge Valentines Babysitting Night for a bunch of neighborhood kids! It was awesome-5 hours of fun for them & peace for us...well kinda. Tim, Jax & I began our evening with none other than ....drum roll please....
The Car Wash. ~An indulgence these days...
The weather was beautiful and we had the place to ourselves...So apparently most people don't go to the Car Wash for their Valentines Date...who knew.

We thought we were funny & so while we were waiting came up with a great idea! We would look through the card selection there, find one we wanted to "give" each other and then hand it over & read...without paying. Brilliant...or what? Yeah I thought so...until I read mine. Tim must not have remembered that we were celebrating Valentines. ....Jerk!..-Just kidding. On the card was some fat lady saying something stupid. Mine to him was of course thoughtful and kind. Maybe we'll try it again another time. {We still had a good laugh out of it of course.}

Then we went across the street to where all the restaurants were and found all the missing people!....We had dinner at Logan's Roadhouse, devoured those perfectly yummy rolls & then Tim picked up a Big Paradise Bakery Cookie with my name on it. We ate it while cuddling up to watch the movie for the rest of the evening.
From my Father In Law: He always sends something to his daughters on Valentines and kindly includes his 2 daughter in laws as well.
Sunday EARLY morning we pulled the kids
out of bed to eat this.....
and went to 8am church to show our LOVE
Gma Debbie, Gpa Lonnie & Ash joined us for our Romantical Italian Lunch
Sunday after church...{we had spaghetti-can you tell by Daylan's face?}
Then we gave the Kiddos their Lil' Gifts..
{Usually inside the bags are Something to Read, Something to Wear,
Something to Eat & Something to Play with.}
Each of the kids made us and each other homemade favorite part of the holiday.
Later that afternoon we dropped off treats/valentines to Grandparents, Aunt & Uncles & the kids received their chocolate treats from Gma Kathy & Gpa Tom.

We are grateful that we have so many people to L❤ve & have so many who Lve us!

Trenton's Baptism...and the Snow!

Cousin Trenton recently turned 8 & chose to be baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We drove up to Flagstaff to be there for the special occasion. Some highlights of the day were the sweet video his sister Natalie made for him showing pictures of his life, Grandma Debbie giving a moving talk on the Holy Ghost and the Campbell Cousins singing together "I Am A Child Of God."
Heidi was a gracious host as always, entertaining, housing & feeding us delicious food!
While we were there we took advantage of the HUGE amount of snow!
Tim decided that Jaxson needed to eat the snow...?
Jax just plays along with his Dad's silly games.
You don't see this every day:
Kids TALLER than the Street Signs!
Check out this pile of snow!
It brought back memories.....


Spencer & Daylan~2010
You don't realize how fast they grow until you see things like this:
Think they look related?... I think they look so much alike...
They have the same cheesy, adorable grin.

Sports Class for Dude

Every Monday morning at 10am has been Daylan's favorite time of the week. He calls it his "Bastet-ball class" although he does everything there. He learned and practiced the basics of soccer, baseball, basketball & did other fun games and things as you can see in these pictures.

He will really miss this class!

My Sisters....Oh how I lve them.
Yes they can annoy as I'm sure I can to them...
But somehow they just know when to call or come over....and take the kids.
These past few weeks have been overwhelming as Tim & his siblings have been caring for their Dad. Life is busy as it is, and then with Ron's accident thrown into the mix it's been stressful to say the least...on so many levels.

This week, as things slow down, I am starting to even see my husband again & we are getting back to a normal schedule. Thanks to all who have pitched in and helped us out....psst you know who you are.
Lve you!
