    Rick and Jen and their 3 youngest kids came to visit! of course Savannah came down from Rexburg! They were splitting time with Jen’s family but we got to see them a few times. We did the Friday night at our house and then Sunday we had EVERYONE together for Easter!! and then we hung out again on Wednesday night before they headed home.

    On Easter Sunday we had most of the family together so we took pictures:

    The Crack

    No Comments

    Our family wanted to go to the crack since we hadn’t been in a while. THE KIDS LOVED IT. It was one of our favorite things that we did in St. George. All of the kids ran right through the Crack (Benji squeezed through a few parts) Ben and I made it through as well. The kids were laughing at my claustrophobia. I was fine as long as I was the only one in The Crack. Pioneer Park is really a great place to explore!

    St. George!

    No Comments

    On Wednesday we headed down to St. George for the rest of the week. Ready for SPRING BREAK! We drove straight to Freddys to start our trip with Custard!

    From there we checked in at the condo and got our swim suits on and swam until 8:30pm!

    The next day we went to the new park with the cousins. It was VERY crowded but lots of fun things for the kids to try.

    We rode the little train at the park and then came home ate lunch and swam the rest of the day! We ate with the cousins in their condo and then had a big game of volleyball. I took most of the kids to the play ground and then to our place for snacks and Moana.

    On Friday we wanted to go play in the river and recreate our river baseball game BUT the water was really high this year and not kid friendly. We then tried to go to a park with a splash pad but it was under construction. We tried another park and the splash pad was not working but we stayed anyway. We played a big game of Wiffle ball – kids verse adults. Jamie’s mom and Amandas brother were there to help us. Adults won by 1 point!

    That afternoon the kids got their swimming in and then we took pizza to the park and played our yearly adults vs kids soccer game. The Hancocks came to hang out also. The kids won by 1 point! So we went to Nielsen’s Custard…  and Udine tickled everyone.


    On Saturday – we played with the Hancocks and cousins. We swam again for HOURS. Then teenagers went to the movie and we went to THE CRACK to explore.

    After the crack, we all met up at Freddy’s for dinner. We enjoyed our meal and then Millie fell and split her chin open. We thought she needed stitches but the nurse and I decided that she didn’t. Michelle and Udine helped with our kids while we figured that all out and the day was over.

    On Sunday – we packed up, went to church, and then drove home on the overly packed I-15.

    Another St George in the books. We were all a little sun burnt and very tired from staying up late every night! Our kids are still little fish and LOVED it.

    Today is the 22nd – I had nothing on my calendar so I blogged all morning and I am caught up. I picked Bennett up at 8am. Started the pulled pork that Emily made us as a thank you dinner!! Made sure the gross mess on the carpet that Brewer left us was cleaned up and airing out. I got all of the garbage out before the garbage man came.  Meanwhile Bennett chose to watch Daniel Tiger, then Millie chose Blues Clues and Ray chose Umizoomi. We  played outside and ate lunch and sent Rose off to school. My kids took baths and Bennett crashed for his afternoon nap. My boys are still bathing. Millie is resting while watching Moana. I have a messy house and a lot of laundry to fold. Kids will be home in 40 minutes.

    My late morning breakfast crew.

    He wanted to skate so bad – he kept tipping backwards.

    Millie tried to help but they were both tooo slippery if they went on the hard wood.

    Bennett did not want Tiago up in his chair invading his personal space. Sorry Buddy your little cousin is a big tease and bully.

    Christy came to town for a few hours! and Megan and Kelsey were able to come over and chat for a couple of hours! That was a good mid day Monday activity! Of course we didn’t take a picture – all I got was trying to snap Ago and Gus doing ring around the rosie.

    I had Scouts at 3:00 – we played a fun game of basketball with my Wolf Den 🙂 and Packer finished his last Requirement for his Bear badge!

    And then we loaded up at 5:00 and went to Manila School Skate Night!! We skated from 5:30-9:00! First ones there, last to leave! We were wiped out but the kids just kept skating and skating and … Benji and Packer stayed on their scooters the entire night with Pacen and Luca. Cali and Rose stayed on their Roller Blades all night with Clara and Mia and Gentry. Ray loved his new skates and he tried the scooter at the end. Millie and Ago both took turns on the skates and in the stroller and roaming the bounce house area. Ben and Kelsey and I stayed on our skates all night and rotated kids 🙂

    Bennett: We’ve been watching Bennett every other day while his mom goes to work and Grandma and Grandpa are in Arizona. He is starting to get used to the chaos of our house. He LOVES the park: on this Monday we dropped Rose off at school and then went to the Fire Truck Park!

    My kids were actually excited to find a football there to play with and they brought a basketball to practice dribbling! It’s a MIRACLE!

    After school, Packer, Benji and I had scouts: We delivered flyers for the food drive. Julia came to babysit!! I stayed and chatted with Abbie for a while after. I’m enjoying working with her in scouts. That night for FHE we went out back and played basketball with the kids and it was FUN. We are LOVING the warm March weather.

    I got up and took Benji to his first BYU Merit Badge Pow Wow! no picture 🙁

    But Cali and I did some quick shopping and then we hit the Provo River Trail on our roller blades!

    On our way home Joel and Megan called to say that they were at Discovery park so we grabbed the kids and headed over to play with Gus:

    We came home and had lunch and naps and relaxed a little and then went back over to the wood park with Falabella kids and Hancock’s!

    Ben shopped all afternoon for Food Storage! and then we had Pizza and relaxed all night. Here is Tiago right before bed in giddy tired mode:

    I am in love with these warm lazy Saturdays without Soccer or Wrestling commitments 🙂
