Disneyland

Spring Break at DISNEYLAND :)
Our fabulous trip started with us driving to Las Vegas and spending the night at a wonderful place we booked by chance. We scored! It is called the Cancun and is on the same street as the strip but a few miles away and so it was really quiet. This place had a pool to die for. It was huge with 4 waterslides, several hot tubs, and a waterfall. The two bedroom suite was beautiful. Get this... even the kids bathroom had a jetted tub. The master bedroom had a double person jetted tub. We are going back to this place.
The next morning we enjoyed a breakfast buffet at the Paris and then continued on to Anaheim.
We, of course, had to spend some time at the beach before we started our time at the "Happiest Place on Earth." We enjoyed, most of all, the crowds and lines. The rides were okay too. Everyone got exhausted but we were tired in wonderful weather. We did all the fun Disneyland and California Adventure things that you normally do. Enjoy some of our finer moments.

We had a blast! Heather couldn't say soon enough after we took the picture with Jasmine that she was very immodest. Our trip ended by driving to St. George and Lenice and Erik had made us a delicious Cafe Rio Salad Easter dinner. It was by far the best meal we had the entire trip. Thanks Chick and Erik. The kids got to swim at their condo pools (all 50 of them) and Heather commented that being with Isabelle was the funnest thing she did on the trip. Go figure, we could have stayed home and gone to Dimple Dell.

See ya next time Mickey!

Happy Easter!

A crazy thing happened at our house this morning... the Easter Bunny came. He must of known we would be out of town on Easter and so he was so nice to surprise us all and came early. Samantha and Heather are showing the cute magnet boards they received, Samantha's new spring outfit, movies for the trip (each child got a movie which means that will account for 4-5 hours of peace and quiet while driving), and notice the darling baskets. We love these baskets because they won't fit very much candy in them. These girls are so wonderful. We love Easter and what it represents.

Jamie goes to State

video

Jamie and his friend Clayton competed in a region band competition. They both played the trumpet and practiced for a long time. When the final moment came, they blasted away the judges and received a 1 (perfect score) and now they are off to STATE to compete further. Way to go gentlemen! (ps You have to pause our music box if you want to hear the video)

The 3 kids NOT FIGHTING

A few days ago Kent and I had been downstairs for quite some time ALONE (when does that happen?) and we finally went upstairs to see what the kids were up to. All three were packed onto Samantha's top bunk and they were actually enjoying each other's company. If that wasn't worth a photo moment, I don't know what is.

Heather the Make-up Artist


Heather is really into make-up and wanted to put it on the both of us. Aren't we gorgeous?
