6: happy | EASTER | Easter egg hunt at Aunt Erika's this year. The kids had so much fun. Lots of yummy food and so much candy. Kate caught on to the the Easter egg hunt pretty fast. She was so hilarious. And thanks to our mini Jelly Bean Hunt in the basement (dad's idea) she loves Jelly Beans...and somehow keeps finding them!

13: Luke is especially excited that, "the next time I go to school I will be in Kindergarten!" He is also relieved he doesn't have to ride carpool with girls anymore. Last week one of the little girls asked Luke if he liked her hair. His response: "wow...not really." He later told me, "I'm so glad I don't have to carpool with girls anymore because they keep showing me their shoes." | Gwen summed up her summer plans, "I'm going to have some water fun, camping fun, trip fun and then back school."
14: Family Camping Trip We hiked, played cards, enjoyed the outdoors and loved just being together.
17: Gwen Turns 4

19: Fun day in the sun!
20: BYU Couples Clinic We had dinner at the Lavell Edwards stadium and got to meet the BYU coaches and players. They were all so nice! Bronco Mendenhall signed a poster for Luke that says, "Luke- Choose The Right." We also got to tour the locker room and even got to run drills on the field.
21: Kate had her first daddy daughter date. Just her and dad got to go get yummy donuts and yes, she ate the whole thing. Kate is talking more and more. She says "here" the most and it is usually followed by giving us whatever she has in her little hands. She also likes to say "button" and show us how to get out of her car seat or that she wants to push the garage door closed.
24: Luke LOVES Kindergarten. He especially likes "learning centers", computers, going to the library and his favorite is of course recess. He told me yesterday, "worksheets are so much fun." And he was so excited when he got an "orange card" for having "extra good behavior." Gwen started Pre-K and is having so much fun. Her hand writing is beautiful and her drawings are adorable. She said her favorite part of school is recess and carpool! | Luke lost his first tooth and started Kindergarten on the same day!
28: Trick or Treat
30: It's A Girl! | We are so excited to have another little girl join the family. I'm so excited for her to get here to give her lots of snuggles and loves...can't wait. Now we just have to agree on a name! Brian likes Sam (that was what we had picked out for a boy) I like Lily or Mae, the kids like Ellie. Haven't found the one we love yet.
31: Luke's 5th Birthday | We took Luke and his friends to see "Despicable Me" and had minion birthday cakes!
