Ragnar LA

Well, Jordan did it again! He ran and managed his third Ragnar Relay. This one, from Santa Barbara to Dana Point. However, this was the first time the kids and I went along! It was so much fun and though it was a lot of work, we are so glad that we went to support Jordan and the team. Mindi and her baby rode along with the kids and I as we supported the Chasquis with food, drink, and love! It was beautiful scenery the whole time and we can't wait to go back next year! Check out the Team Chasqui blog for race reviews, Twitter updates, and just finished, an awesome video that Mike took along the way.

Easter was wonderful this year. It's so much more fun when your kids actually "get it" and understand what an egg-hunt is. It's also nice when they finally understand a little about Jesus and can start to comprehend why we actually celebrate Easter.

Saturday morning we had a ward pancake breakfast and an Easter egg hunt at a park. Sunday, the Easter Bunny came to our backyard and left some treats and gifts for Trey and Tally. Sunday evening, we had a wonderful dinner with my family and the Easter Bunny came again, to Grandma and Grandpa's backyard. He was busy all weekend!! Of course he thought ahead and sectioned off the grass into four quadrants so that each boy could find his own set of eggs. Very smart, Easter Bunny!

Do not toss, throw, or "chuck" the full Diaper Genie bag down the stairs, EVER AGAIN! Our noses just can't handle the explosion of stink again.

the cloves

A couple of weeks ago Liesel and her kids came to visit. It was so much fun to have them here. Trey thought he was in heaven because he had constant buddies to play with. We did a few fun and free activities in town, like Ethel M. Chocolate Factory, and viewing the fish tank at Bass Pro. I love that even though Liesel and I don't get to see each other often, we get along so well and act as though we just hung out the other day. Thanks for being such a good friend (and cousin) Liesel! Come back again soon... Trey misses "the kids"!
