Spring Break this year was lots of fun! We headed west and went to Kansas City! We stayed in The Great Wolf Lodge! The kids had a great time. We spent lots of time in the Hotels indoor waterpark. We loved all of the waterslides and the swimming. We also got to enjoy time visiting with Uncle Cam, Aunt Natalia, and baby Elsi. We went to Uncle Cams favorite go-karts! We need to brush up on our go-karting skills, because Uncle Cam left all of us in the dust! The kids also played a fun game at the hotel called Magi-Quest! It took two days to play this game and they still didn't quite defeat the dragon. I guess we will just have to go back so that we can finish this game next time. All and all it was a great quick get away and we really enjoyed spending time together as a family!

It was a girls weekend getaway. I had a blast in San Francisco with my mom and all my sisters. What could be better than shopping, eating out, the spa, and enjoying time with your mom and sisters? It was a weekend of pure relaxation. We had a blast. Thank you Tiffany for hosting all of us! The accommodations were fabulous. Happy Birthday to Tauna and Tracie! Love you guys - Lets do it again. Only next time lets go to Paris!

Tyler was so excited about his first pinewood derby! However his father was more excited about Tyler's first pinewood derby. It has been Greg's goal to perfect the perfect car for the past 8 years. Zack and Jared have had to be the guinea pigs. With each year the cars have gotten a little better. Jared had a first place car last year and they managed to keep that spot with Tyler's first place car this year. Tyler was very EXCITED! Greg was even more EXCITED! We only have two more pinewood derby's. It will be a sad day for Greg when his boys are too old for the Pinewood Derby. Way to go Tyler! We are proud of you. Way to go Greg - We are proud of you also.

Emily has been so excited to lose her third tooth! She has been very protective of this tooth for weeks. It has been hanging in there by a thread and Emily has been very careful to not let her dad in her mouth. She told me that she was waiting for it to fall out all on its own. That way it will not hurt or bleed. She did just that! She was walking up the stairs when she let out a scream of excitement. She was so proud that all she had to do was give her tooth a little push with the tongue and that it just fell right out. "No Pain and No Blood!" She must have had big plans for the rewards of this tooth because she left a note for the tooth fairy requesting 20 Dollars! The tooth fairy left her reward along with a note under Emily's pillow. (It was not 20 dollars!) At 3:00 a.m., Emily approached my bedside excited about her find, but wanted to know what it meant to be broke. (The tooth fairy left a note for Emily explaining that if she left everyone 20 dollars she would be broke!) I chuckled and sent her back to bed. Emily now knows what it means to be broke!

WOW - ZACK IS 14! We can hardly believe that he is now old enough to attend Stake Dances! If he is fourteen his parents must be pretty old. I think that they are in denial of their real age. Zack celebrated his birthday by having some boys from the ward spend the night. It turned into an all night party. No one went to bed and they played X-Box all night long. Zack being the determined soul that he is decided that he didn't need sleep. He stayed up all night and then stayed up all day the next day. Zack finally got a new bedroom for his birthday. Now when you all come to visit - your accommodations will be a little nicer. We love Zack and are happy to have him in our home. Happy Birthday Zack!
