Ireland's Dance Recital

I took this video with my phone... not the best quality. Iree is the one in the middle. She watched her friend Maelyn to see what the next move was. Very Cute!

Look at those Hops!!!
It might not be the right move but at least she can jump.

Just a little shy...

And It Begins...

After a couple awesome summers on boats with family and friends Mark and I gave in and got one of our own!!!

We had to test it out so we went to the Utah Lake last Saturday... (other lakes still have ice on them). The outside temp was 62 and the water was in the upper 40's. I wasn't planning on getting in the water but the wake was just too sweet to pass up.

I will apologize in advance... this will monopolize most of our families activities this year... so excited... come with us... seriously!!! We are going to have a killer summer!

Great-Grandpa Horton

Last week we visited Grandpa and Grandma Horton. It was a beautiful day outside so Grandpa took the kids around in the wheelbarrow and wagon. I was a little nervous with him pushing the wheelbarrow... he just had back surgery a few months ago and is still a little weak so I helped them make the transition to the wagon. These are some precious pictures with Great-Grandpa... I am so glad I have a phone that takes pictures when I forget my camera.

The Wheelin Jazz

Todd and Anna invited us to a Wheelin Jazz benefit game. It was super cool. These guys are amazing. The game was full of bloopers and fun. I would love to go watch real game and see what this team can do.

Easter Sunday

On our walk to the park... So many beautiful spring flowers were out. I love Spring!
Heather and I had to beg Jacob to pose in the flowers. He finally gave in.

Easter Morning

Iree and Jacob woke up so early... they were very excited to see what the Easter Bunny left in their baskets. We have a little rule that you have to wait for the whole family before you can go downstairs and check out your loot. After an hour of waiting for Dad and Mason to wake up they were able to see what the Easter Bunny left. Their baskets were hidden along with tons of candy filled eggs. Here are some pj pictures...with lots of bed head.


I am loving spring and loving all the parks just a walk away. I rarely miss a day without spending an hour at a park. This park just opened and I love it... It has a sandy beach on the lake, two basketball courts, an awesome playground, swings, and lots of grass for a picnic. All just a 3 minute walk from my house... I can't wait for the warm weather... I am ready!!

Mark's Trip to Colorado

Mark went to Colorado for his sister Alex's 21st Birthday. They rented a condo and went skiing/snowboarding as a family. I relaxed at home with 3 sick kids, they watched movies and I read two books.

Mark always has a fun time laughing with his family.

Cory, Matt, Alex and Randy waiting to go skiing!

We had 2 weeks of amazing weather and now this... I guess we have to make the best of it! Soon enough the kids won't want to be outside because it is too hot.
