Thankful Thursday

 This week has been hard to think of things that I am thankful for.  I have sick kids.  Again.  Please can it be Spring now?  

I am thankful for March Madness.  It has given me something to keep my mind off the yucky weather and it always brings our families closer together.  :)  GO COUGARS!!!

I am thankful that a new Cafe Rio is going in Spanish Fork!!!  This could be a budget buster, but I am excited for it!  

I am thankful tomorrow is Friday!  The kids have been so excited to have a normal "Fry Day."  

I guess that's all I got for today!  

The Aquarium

 Tuesday, we went to the Aquarium with Rach, Ethan, Kenzie and Trish.  It was Kenzie's birthday, and we were lucky enough to be on her guest list!  :)  The kids loved running around with the cousins!  

 Touching the sting rays.  

 I looked up and saw Thomas chatting with the girl behind the counter.  He was asking her all kinds of questions about the creatures in front of her.  It was so cute!  He is so curious right now.

 Yeah, we pet all those little things!  
 Here we are watching the penguins swim around and hop out of the water.  It was so cool to watch them!

 Measuring ourselves with the penguins.  
Happy Birthday to Kenzie!  Glad we could come along for the party!

Jerome Trip

 We went to Jerome to visit Papa and Grandma starting on the 17th.  We had so much fun!  The kids loved playing with cousins and visiting with Papa Arlen and Grandma Del.  
 Coloring is always better with Grandma's crayons and coloring books!
 Playing blocks and building towers.
 The babies' favorite spot was perched on Grandma's stool, pulling papers off Grandma's desk.  :)  

 We spent lots of time running around in the barn.  
 Everytime I tried to take a picture of Jace, he would just run towards me and try to grab the camera.  He is so funny!

 Thomas tried and tried to make a basket.  I showed him my "mad skills" and he really was impressed.  After a while, he decided he was done trying, and I taught him how to play Wall Ball.  He was thrilled and loved playing it!  
 Bella trying the "granny" way to shoot.
 Jace was literally in my back pocket this trip.  He likes to lift up my jacket to see my jean pockets.  What a silly kid!
Jace and Sophie loved playing with all the fun toys!  They took turns filling up the backpack with blocks.

Papa took us out to Crossroads to see the progress there.  They were blowing up rocks and then scooping them up and putting them into a crusher machine.  Thomas and I got a kick out of it.  

Grandma and Grandpa Daw came over for lunch one day.  Bella held hands to walk them to the door.  She was Grandma Del's little shadow.  

Grandma bought the Zumba DVDs and let ME be the first to try them out.  The babies were loving it!  Usually during Zumba, they are stuck in the stroller.  :)

These pictures were after Papa and Grandma left.  They had to go back to Sandy for Papa's lesson on Sunday.  We had yummy leftovers, and Jace loved it!  

Saturday night, we watched the Cougars play Gonzaga.  It was so much fun to watch it with the family! Bella found a best friend in Mikesell.  She played on her phone all night.  :)  It was pretty cute.  
Kaley, McCall and Bella - These girls had so much fun the whole time!  We did have our fair share of trouble with these three - popourie spray in the girls bathroom, and playing Beauty Parlour with Bella (that poor girl had every kind of make up and perfume on her!), but they sure had fun!  Kaley and Call are the best of little friends!  

Thomas and Harrison - Harrison was such a good sport and played with Thomas.  T loved making paper airplanes, building blocks and wrestling with him.  Such fun cousins!  
I got the biggest kick out of this view.  Bella and Thomas crashed in the same position in the back seat, mouths wide open.  So funny!  

BIG Thanks to Papa and Grandma for hosting us!  
We had so much fun!  We were so glad to visit our family up there!  We are thankful for all of you!

We love you!
