April activities

We bought some kites to try out when it was windy one day. The kids enjoyed it, but the wind was kind of off and on, so it was a bit tricky! And when you buy $2 kites, you get what you pay for.

This is the story of our lives right now. Dirt, mud, and yucky kids! We are in the process of working on our yard. We have gotten some dirt and moved it around to spots. We are working on our "design" plans and then we will have our sprinklers mapped for us. Justin is going to do the yard himself. The builder has given us a sod certificate for the front, but we will probably do seed in the back.

Molly lost another tooth! On the bottom left.

Super proud! The tooth fairy brought her $1.

And she has been doing a great job reading lately. She can read this book all by herself! She passed off her skill sets (something her school does) and now she gets to bring home books to read. It's a really exciting time!

We went down to Provo to see the art exhibit at BYU last weekend, called "Sacred Gifts".  

The paintings were of Jesus Christ by 3 different artists. The paintings were beautiful and what is interesting is that many of the paintings will only be on loan for this one exhibit, never to be loaned again!

After, we walked around campus. The kids loved running around and checking out all the interesting sculptures and things.

We thought this tree was beautiful!

We went into the BYU Bookstore. There is a little area for kids to read books. They had these large animals you could sit on. The kids loved them.

Then we had lunch in the Wilkinson Center. They have a Chick-Fil-A now! Lucky students :) we didn't have one when I was there! Unfortunately my favorite place to eat there was closed. So that was a bummer. They have a chicken caesar wrap that I love!

Not to worry though, we made sure and got some ice cream from the creamery. I think this is called earnestly chocolate.

It made for a really fun afternoon for all of us. It was fun to reminisce and think about the good times I had at BYU. I loved my college days. It's crazy to think how long has passed since I was a student!
