Dance recital!

My friend Melissa taught a dance class for 3 year olds at church!  Emmy loves to dance and get dressed up!  She was a little reluctant about class at first but she ended up having a great time with all her friends!  Here she is at her recital!

Waiting in the wings for the show to start!

The ballerinas enter the stage!

Twirls!  Is she not the cutest ballerina you’ve ever seen?? (I’m totally unbiased!)

Shake your hips!

And take a bow!!

Great job girls!  We love you Emeline!

Dressing up and moving out!

Emeline would get pretty bored while I was packing our house up for the move!  Here are some pics of her dressing up one day while I was packing!

Pink Fairy costume!

Tinkerbell herself!!

Kissing her butterfly wand!

And my personal favorite…This is a hybrid of cinderella, tinkerbell and the Thing from fantastic 4!!  Thinkerella or Cinkerbelling…you pick!  What a crazy girl!

Spring Break!!

Here are some pictures from Spring Break!!

So the trouble with being so behind on our blog is that I forget so many of the details.  Like in these pics I kept wondering “Why don’t I have any pics of the girl’s in church dresses?” and “how did we have time to do an easter egg hunt before church?”  Then I remembered that it was General Conference that weekend!!  It was really nice to listen to the prophet on Easter and spend time with family!

Kaylee did great for her first Easter Egg hunt!  (It was really her 2nd but she wasn’t mobile for her first so it was a whole new ballgame!)

Emmy finds a stash next to the bookshelf!

Kaylee and Emmy enjoy their findings!

Kaylee kept eating her candy with the wrappers on so we really had to watch her!  Foil, Yum!

My mom’s b-day was the day after Easter so we had a party for her!!  Emmy decorated her cake with M&M’s!! I forgot to get a close-up picture but it was great!  Good work Emeline and Happy Bday Grandma!!

Christina got to visit for part of Spring Break and we took her on a hike up to the natural arch.  We missed the arch turnoff but we found a great trail anyway!  The only problem was that it was only supposed to be a 2 mile hike and we ended up doing around 8 miles!  Oops!

Kaylee trying to be like Aunt Christina!

The view was apparently hair raising!

Kaylee stole my little stick so I got a bigger one!



Christina didn’t have on the best shoes (since we told her it would only be 2 miles)!! Ouch!

Spring Training!

The Mariners and the Rockies had a spring training game at Isotopes Park in Albuquerque.  Alex found out and got us tickets!  It was already the second spring training game Emmy and Kaylee have been to so they were old pros!

Kaylee gave Emmy a pretty nasty scratch but Emmy looked cute in her Royals shirt and BYU hat!  All in pink, of course!

Uncle Christian came down with us too!  They were here for Spring break!

Here’s Daddy, Kaylee, and Bill!  We had great seats and a great time!

Cousins visit!!

Way back in March Beth brought the kids for a visit!!  Emmy and Kaylee were really excited to see their cousins and take them to their favorite places around town!  Alex had some long nights at work so Beth and I had a lot of time for girl talk!  This was also the weekend we put the offer in on our current house so we were probably kind of crazy hosts but Beth got to see our new house and help us with her home buying expertise! 🙂 Here are some pics from that trip!

Kaylee and Joshua make a break for it on their motorcycle!!

Logan takes a turn driving with Kaylee in the sidecar!

Emmy loves the curly slide!  She and her friends always go down it together!  Here she goes with her cousin Logan!

Josh loved this double slide!

On Sunday we worked for awhile to get a good picture of all the cousins.  What cuties!  (This picture is already out of date since Logan and Josh now have a little sister!! But we will get pics with all 5 cousins next weekend at her blessing!!!)

I thought this one was cute with their arms around one another!  Kaylee is staring at Josh in most of these pics though!  What good looking kids! 🙂
