Field Trip to Reed's Dairy

Eli's preschool class went on a field trip to Reed's Dairy. It was so much fun! We saw cows, pigs, chickens, and horses.

This sweet little calf was only one day old.

We ended the trip off with some yummy ice cream :)

Hannah's School Fundraiser

Hannah's school did an awesome fundraiser this year. The children got pledges and then they ran their little hearts out for fifty minutes at school. Each lap was a third of a mile. Hannah reached her goal and ran 10 laps! The kids and I went to cheer her on, and Brady came from work too. Brady, Eli, and I each took a turn to run with her. (Jonas wanted a turn, but I thought he would just slow her down.)

Here she is finishing lap #10. Eli ran the final lap with her and Jonas and I met her at the end.

Kindergarten Roundup

Eli starts kindergarten in the fall and was excited to attend the kindergarten roundup this month. The kids were split into two groups. They went to the kindergarten rooms while the moms stayed in the library to receive information. Eli had fun listening to a story and working on some worksheets. It's going to be a long summer... he's so excited for school to start!

Eli starring in The Three Billy Goats Gruff :)

Eli was the biggest billy goat Gruff in his preschool play. He was sick the day of the actual performance, so this is the encore performance that Jonas and I got to see. He's the one in the blue Mario shirt.

Little Artists

Hannah's artwork was one of two chosen from her class to be displayed at the Idaho Falls Art Museum. She describes it as a sunset at the beach.

After we looked at the artwork, the kids made some art of their own.
They were each very thoughtful and meticulous with their creations.

Happy Easter 2011

We had a beautiful Easter celebration this year. We spent the week leading up to Easter to discuss the Savior and the events preceding the resurrection. We are so grateful for our Savior, Jesus Christ, and for his life and resurrection.

We also spent time with friends and family.
We never know what kind of weather we are going to get here in Idaho.
It was sunny and warm this year.
We were able to join some neighbors for a fun Easter egg hunt.

Easter morning was fun. The kids found eggs that were hidden around the house. We went to church and the choir did an awesome job singing an Easter medley (I'm the choir director).

After church we went to grandma's house to have dinner and an Easter egg hunt with cousins.
It was fun to be with family. Here's a picture of the kids lining up in age order before the hunt.

Hannah and Malory looked so cute in their matching shirts.

We had a great Easter this year!

Las Vegas Trip

We went to Las Vegas last month for a little family trip. We were able to meet my sister Michelle's family there and had a lot of fun. I kept forgetting to take my camera on our adventures, so this post will be filled with pictures that I took with my phone :) Woops!

We went to the chocolate factory and looked at the cactus garden outside. The factory was kind of lame, but the gardens were pretty. The cousins were having a lot of fun together and didn't even seem to notice that they were not making chocolate in the factory... only walking around in white lab coats.

We also went bowling and the kids had so much fun. Jonas was a little frustrated that he needed help. The bumpers were up, and the kids did surprisingly well. Maybe Wii bowling helped :)

We also went to the children's museum. It was huge and had a lot to do and see. I wish we had one here in Idaho.

The kids really enjoyed the light and laser show at Sam's Town too. We went during the day and they wanted to go back at night to see it again with the lasers.

At the condo, the kids had fun playing together and putting on shows for the adults. We also went swimming and Eli and Hannah were brave enough to go down the water slides.

After the Moores left on Saturday, we went to a yummy buffet, then to see the temple. Later that night we went to see the Bellagio gardens. They were gorgeous! They had a greenhouse full of live butterflies that we could walk through. We saw the fountains afterward-- my favorite thing to do in Vegas.

So, even though it was a short trip, we packed it full of fun!
