happy birthday daddy

Wishing you a very happy birthday

Photobucket



Photobucket

You are the best dad, Sage loves doing anything with you, biking, wrestling, hiking, working,kicking a ball...it does not matter as long as you are with him.


Photobucket

Gracie is your little girl through and through and you would do anything for her...especially when she turns on her famous crocodile tears.

Photobucket

Zoe already has you wrapped around her little finger...she refuses to say mama, it is only dada, dada!

Photobucket

Hope you have a great day...and enjoy the big green egg, you deserve it. We all benefit when you cook for us on it!

Snowbasin dancers

Grace had a little performance for her dance class at Snowbasin on Saturday, they were part of the entertainment for a fundraiser.

Photobucket
She looked so cute and was pretty excited...she kept reminding us this was not her real recital!

Photobucket
Zoe was waiting patiently
It was cold up there, the dancers were amongst the skiers, we will be up there this weekend for ski lessons so it was a little weird.

Photobucket
Grace was looking pretty worried when they were getting started, at that point, I wondered if she would go through with it.

Photobucket
Up she jumped

Photobucket
and danced

Photobucket
and stretched

Photobucket
and skipped with her tongue

Photobucket
love that tongue!
She did a great job and was oh so very cute!

Photobucket
It was funny watching Sage hang around watching all of the dance groups. I had visions of him in the future going to lots of these things with his two sisters...but soon enough as Jeremy pointed out to him, he will be able to pick up chics!

march randomness

March has been busy for us and we still have a few birthdays left to celebrate!
Here are some random pics from our month so far

Photobucket

We went to St. George at the first of March for the big boys to play in a softball tournament...they did not do so great but we had lots of fun anyway.

Grandma bought all the kids new sunglasses and flip flops while we were there!

Photobucket


Photobucket
Good thing she was so cute, because she did not sleep well on that trip.

Photobucket
Grace and I went to Disney on Ice for her birthday...Zoe was ready to go too but it was fun to leave everyone home and hang with Gracie.

Photobucket

We wore our obligatory green for St. Patty's day along with green pancakes and green milk.

Costa Rica

I am finally getting around to posting some really great pictures of our trip (thanks Nicole for taking all of these, you are a pro)!
Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

We went with really great, fun people! And despite having a Nichole, a Nicole, a Trav and a Trev we survived without much confusion!

Photobucket
We saw lots of cute monkeys...some of them joined us on the boat which was very cool.

Photobucket
Lots of crocs, luckily they did not join us on the boat.

Photobucket
Iguanas and geckos were everywhere...

Photobucket
This tarantula was hanging out above our patio door...we chose another route out to the pool.

Photobucket
We found this scorpion in one of the showers...luckily no one was using it.

Photobucket
The zip line crew...everyone but me. Someone had to take pictures (yes, I am a wimp).

Photobucket
We went over to the wet side of Costa Rica one day and loved seeing the fence posts sprouting into trees...it must rain a lot!

Photobucket
We were hoping our trip may never end...of course we missed our kids but the calm of this vacation was just what needed!

Photobucket
Our private pool and view from our house. We were on the dry side of Costa Rica and it looked like Wyoming...except for the monkeys, iguanas and the ocean nearby.

Thanks guys for a wonderful trip...we are ready to plan the next one!

Gracie's Party

Photobucket

We had a party for Grace the day after we came home...just a few kids, she wanted her best friends.

Photobucket

These are Grace's best friends...along with Bridger in the pic above. One of the little girls who has only sisters could not understand why there was a boy at the birthday party! Lucky boy for sure! The other boys at Grace's preschool are jealous of Bridger because he gets to play with Grace all the time (I thought I had a few more years before all of that).

Happy this week is almost over, it has been crazy busy. Now to get packed for a quick trip to St. George.

my girl

Grace is five now...she is my girl!

I can't believe it has been five years, she is as sweet today as the day she was born.

She is the best big sister a little girl could ask for and the best helper I could ever ask for.

Happy Birthday Gracie Girl!

I'm back....

We are back...our vacation was wonderful in every way!

Pictures and details will come, for now I am trying to catch up on laundry, have a birthday party and get back into our real life...is it bad to wish we were still there?

I am happy that we came home to a beautiful day...could not ask for nicer spring weather on March 1st and I just saw the first tulip greens peeking up in my yard!
