Flowers

Becca was dead set on planting flowers at the new house (before we’d even moved in).  It ended up being a little more effort than she anticipated, but most of them did survive.

Still alive–just busy!

We are still alive–despite the lack of blog posts.  Just been very busy.  Moved from Salt Lake to Bountiful a month ago and we’ve had company in town for most of the time since then.  We even had both grandmas in town for a few days.  My mom (along with my aunt and cousin) came to Utah for a few days to take my cousin to visit Utah State.  Then Jen’s mom was in town getting ready for Jen’s cousin’s wedding. They overlapped for a day.  When I got home from work that evening, I asked Caroline how her day was; she said,”two grandmas!”

Megan came to visit us, which is right up there with grandma visits for the kids!  We had a little birthday celebration for her (somehow the cake ended up with a lot of little finger marks in the frosting by the time we actually got together with Megan).  Caroline had been talking about singing Happy Birthday to Megan for weeks, so she was clearly looking forward to it.

My mom came to visit–the kids were super excited!  She arrived the morning of Henry’s big kindergarten program.  Henry was a lion because his teachers think he has the biggest heart in the class (and also he was not embarrassed to wear the full lion costume).

Also went to get frozen yogurt.

We went to City Creek and then the the kids’ favorite restaurant (Cheesecake Factory!).

And then to the toy store.

My mom was in town for Women’s Conference at BYU, so she was meeting two of her old friends in Utah.  We all hung out together some and did a birthday party for my mom.

Easter

We went to Easter egg hunting at the little shopping center by our house (really it’s collecting paper “eggs” from all of the stores, and then trading them in for candy and goodies.  Caroline was extremely scared of the Easter bunny.

Also dyed eggs.  Relatively little mess compared to years past actually.  Caroline definitely has more of the assembly-line approach to egg dying, while Becca tries to create little works of art.  Henry “accidentally” cracked a couple so he could eat them.

The Easter bunny managed to find his way into the condo and brought waaaay too much candy.  The kids had all pretty much gorged themselves by the time I woke up at 6:00 a.m.  They were pretty nutty for the rest of the day.

We went to some friends’ house for Easter dinner and more candy-filled eggs.
