Sand Dunes - Easter Weekend

While we were on our four wheeler ride, we found the sand dunes so we got out and played for a little bit. Zach wanted to play with the toys that the kids packed.

Kylie immediately grabbed one of the sleds and started heading up the hill.

She wasn't quite sure what to do so I decided that I better be a trooper and hike up there and go with her.

Lets just say that I was not going down the hill very well.

Zach decided after a little while that he wanted to go up to. But when it came time to going on the slide he decided it didn't look to great after all.

My mom even made the little (not so little) hike up the hill..

When it came time to rolling the eggs down the hill Greg and Kylie decided that it would be funner to throw them.

And then take a hike up a little ways.

Kylie actually kept hiking for a little ways and got quite far.
I didn't get a picture, because it was too hard to see her.

Then as we were getting ready to leave, my dad and Zach were going up a couple of little hills, and my dad got stuck. But, Zach sure had the biggest smile on his face every time he came up that hill.

Four Wheeler Ridin - Easter Weekend

Over the Easter/Spring Break we went down to Green River to spend some time with my mom and dad.
On Friday they took us out for a four wheeler ride to a small patch of sand dunes, and along the way on the ride we saw this geyser just out in the middle of nowhere. It wasn't very high, but kind of cool to see.
Greg came with us too, as his little family was in Canada visiting with Heather's dad and mom.

Zach and Kylie looking for a drink before we took off again.

Zach was so excited to be riding the four wheelers. He even rode with Uncle Greg for a little while.

Kylie rode with her dad!

Mom and Dad

Thanks for a fun day!

The Rabbit Romp Exchange

Wendy over at Craft Goodies was hosting a Rabbit Romp and I decided to participate.
The rules were that you had to include a rabbit in your craft.
I decided to make my partner Terry from Cherished Treasures, an Easter sign, with some bunnies to go on the side. I also found her a fun little Easter notepad and a chocolate bunny.
I hope that she liked them, because I had fun making them!

Kylie's Face Painting

Kylie participated in Arts kids this year. One of the days they learned all about face painting.
This is what she looked like when she came home.

Let's just say it took her a long time to get all the red washed off!!

Dad's and Doughnuts 2011

We had out annual dads and doughnuts day in March, where the dads and kids get to have time together to share a book and eat a doughnut.
Kylie and Dad sat out in the Kiva to read before going to get doughnuts.

Zach wanted to have nothing to do with reading this year. All he wanted to do was play on the computers in my classroom.

Kylie's Birthday Part 3

Kylie also had a small gathering of friends for a party this year.
We used the theme of Camp Rock and sang and danced our way through the afternoon.

Here the girls are practicing their singing skills.

Eating cookies and milk. The sugar cookies were shaped like stars and they said, "Rock Star" on them.

Being silly and having fun.

Opening presents......

More dancin to the Wii.
Do we love this new game or what?

Kylie's Birthday Part 2

Grandma and Grandpa Ovard brought the kids over so we could have cake and ice cream for Kylie's birthday. (Look at Zach! He is helping his sister to blow out the candles.)

Having a little Wii fun at our house with Drew and Trista. Kylie got The Kids Dance game for her bday.

Kylie's 9th Birthday Part 1

I have been a slacker when it comes to blogging this year. I decided it was about time I got myself caught back up.

Kylie turned the big 9 this year, and it seemed like we just had one party after another for her.
This is when we were in Monroe with the Parsons Family. All of her cousins were there to share the day with her.

After having cake and ice cream everyone gathered in the family room for a big dance party with the Wii. It was quite the fun had by all.
