April 18-24: Swim Lessons and Family Pictures

April 18.  On Saturday the kids finally got back into swim lessons.  They have been begging forever.  Abby was a bit of a barnacle through her parent/class.  She didn't hate the water, she just wanted to be attached to me.  The boys on the other hand love swim lessons.







In the evening we got family pictures taken.








April 19.  Sunday was my first day at church as the Relief Society President.  Then we went to dinner at John and Jill's.





April 20 -22.  I spent the week getting ready for the Parental Defense conference.  Abby refused to nap but took a rest on the stairs.


April 23-24.  On Thursday and Friday I was up at the Zermatt for the conference.  They give me a special service award for my dedication to the PDA.  That was nice.


While I was at my conference the kids got to go to Grandma's and Grandpas.

April 11-17: A Rock Show, A New Calling and Snow!

April 11.  We woke up at our hotel and ate breakfast.  We had arranged to meet Ed and Cyndy at a rock show at the Golden Spike Arena, but we had about and hour to kill before it was time so we played angry birds.




The kids had a blast at the rock show picking out geodes and other rocks to buy.





April 12.  The kids looked really cute in their Sunday best.


On Sunday I was sustained and set apart as the new Relief Society president.  I bought myself paper plates as a present.  More garbage but fewer dishes.


April 13.  Monday morning I decided to light up the buddy burner and see how long it took to boil water.  After 45 minutes I decided it was a fire hazard and the water was hot but not boiling.  We also set up the hammock.




April 14.  Tuesday we took the hammock down because it started to snow.


April 15.  By Wednesday we had 7 inches of snow.




April 17.  On Friday I went to the wedding reception of my cousin Jill's son Clay.  It was so nice to catch up with cousins.

April 4-10: Easter/Conference Weekend and a Trip to Ogden

April 4.  Saturday morning I worked out early and then came home to watch the morning session of Conference.  We had a nice Saturday afternoon at our friend Sebastian's birthday party.  He turned two.  Bryce had planned on watching the Priesthood session in Kaysville with his dad, but Ed rolled his 4-wheeler Saturday afternoon.  Fortunately he's alright,  We made to Kaysville for most of the Priesthood session and spent the night.




April 5.  Easter morning!  The kids were so excited to get up and see what the Easter Bunny had left in their baskets.









The Easter Bunny even hid all the eggs that Mom and Dad had stuffed with loose change.  










We listened to Conference while and then had a lovely lunch of lamb chops.



April 6.  The boys stayed over night and went to the park with Grandma and Grandpa Hansen on Monday.



While the boys were away Abby found some stickers.


After I picked up the boys, Stan insisted on spending his money from the Easter egg hunt.  He convinced Kimball to combine funds to buy a robotic fish in a tank with a shark.  They loved playing with it, but the fish stopped working and we returned it the next day.



April 7.  On Tuesday, we enjoyed the second day of spring break by hanging out with our friends the Chamorro's and their new trampoline.


When we got home Abby refused to get out of the car.  At one point I took her out and she insisted on getting back in and buckling up.  She was out the for over an hour.


April 8.  On Wednesday we went to the Aquarium with Ed and Cyndy and I did not take a single picture.  I suppose we were too busy having fun.

April 9.  I spent Thursday working hard trying to finish all things work related so I could take the kids up to Ogden for an overnighter.  It was my attempt at spring break on a budget.  

April 10.  We finally made it out of the house about 11:30, so we stopped in Kaysville for lunch with Ed and Cyndy.  We arrived in Ogden by 2, but couldn't check into our hotel until 3.  To pass the time we went to an arcade where the kids had fun earning tickets for prizes.  After we checked into the hotel we went swimming in the oversized hot tub.  Abby took a dive in the deep part when I got out to turn the jets on, but we are all ok.





   

After the pool Bryce was supposed to meet us for dinner, but got stuck in traffic.  Fortunately he made it just in time for the movie Home.  The kids loved it.  Here they are playing at the hotel after the movie.




You'll have to come back for the rest of our Ogden adventures.
