"The Happiest Place on Earth"

Our family went to Cali! Yeah! It was so much fun. It started off on February 19th Dave's Birthday! That morning Dave spoke at the Utah State Bar. That was really neat. Soon as he came back we started the drive. We went with Andy and Shannon Melchior and their 2 little ones Connor and Eliana. They are our great friends and Andy is Dave's business partner.

This is on the drive down, we found this tank and box car from a train, so we took a brake and played.

We spent a night in Vegas and hte next day finally made it to San Diego. Oh yes, it was wonderful to arrive. We swam in the pool all afternoon until dark. Then we ordered yummy pizza and salads and enjoyed them around a fire. We spent more time swimming and in the hot tub. It was seriously one of the funnest nights I had on the trip.
The next day was Sea World, oh yeah!

Feeding Dolphins, Collin loved this, although I had a hard time catching a good picture of him giving the dolphins their fish.

New Penguins for the Souvenirs.

BEACH HOUSE!!! We had a great time at the beach house. There were was a day full of rain and a some afternoon clouds, but it didn't hold any of the kids back.
The beach pictures are my absolute favorite. It is beautiful, bright, and the boys feel so free and happy!

Mmmmm... Ice Cream! What would the beach be with out ice cream every afternoon. We thank Uncle Benjamen for that tradition.

Show it off boys!

Gymnastics - Valentine Weekend

"Collin come back, Collin come over here" Those are the words I continually hear from Collins teacher. In all honestly it cracks me up. They may just need to step up the intensity in their teaching techniques.
Casen might as well be in gymnastics. He plays on the equipment by me the whole time, until we are about to get caught, then I pull him off.
Valentine Get Away! Dave and I, Jena and Shane took off for 3 days and 2 nights to Wolf Creek. It was beautiful, fun and relaxing.
Dave and I went Cross Country skiing for the FIRST TIME. Wahoo! It was fun!
