Last night after pizza and bowling, our kids got to do flowrider with their uncle Kyle. He is so patient and good with them. Eli and Carter went by themselves a few times, but most of the time each of the kids would take turns riding on Kyle's back. They were all very brave and had a lot of fun. Calee didn't have a swimming suit, so we let her run around in her diaper. Everytime they would shut flowrider down, she would walk out into the water and swim for a minute. I didn't take any boardshorts, but the more I watched them, the more I wished I would have. It was still fun just watching the kids do it.

Bowling at FatCats

Kevin, Mandy, and their kids were in town the last couple of days, and last night we were able to get together as a family down at the Junction. We ate dinner together at the Pizza Factory and then we all went bowling at FatCats. The kids had a blast being together. Shandi and Emily helped Calee bowl and it was fun to watch how excited she would get.

Over-nighter at Willard Bay

Friday night I took my Boy Scouts on an overnighter to Willard Bay. Carter loves to go with me whenever I go on a campout. It is nice to get away and go on little over-nighters with him once a month. After dinner, we went on a little hike along Willard Bay. Carter and the boys tried to catch frogs along the bank. Carter did manage to catch some tadpoles and of course he had to bring them home.

Pinewood Derby!

Tonight was the big Pinewood Derby. For a few weeks now, Carter and I have been working on our cars together. Carter wanted to build a army humvee, and I wanted to build a hot rod. I found a cool pattern for a army humvee for Carter, and I decided to build mine to look like ZZ Top's Eliminator 33' Ford Coupe. We had a blast working on them together. I tried to let Carter do most of the work on his car himself, so he could learn all about cutting, sanding, and painting. Our cars weren't the fastest cars on the track, but they were, by far,  the two best looking cars there. I thought Carter might be upset that he didn't finish in the top three, but he wasn't at all. He had a lot of fun just being there and racing. I am really proud of him. I enjoyed building these cars with him and watching him get so excited. I love Carter so much, and I am glad that we finally get to do Scouts stuff together.

Swimming one day, Snow the next!

I can't believe our kids were out having a water fight two days ago, and today it is snowing. That is Utah weather for you. Anyway, here is a cute picture of our girls in their matching swimming suits.

Our kids in their Easter Clothes

Today was our Stake Conference down at the tabernacle, and we had a lot of comments from people at how cute the three of them looked in their matching clothes. When we got home I made them sit on the porch so I could take pictures of them. Calee was actually falling asleep on the way home, but we made her stay awake for pictures.

A couple of really "silly" pics

Our cute girls!

Grandma Janet and Aunt Nadene decided to go shopping and buy our girls fun new bright colored summer clothes with matching sandals. Of course, Cambree and Calee had to wear their new clothes today. They both looked so cute! They are lucky to have a lot of Grandmas and Aunts that love to spoil them! Here are a few pictures that I took today of them.

Easter Egg Hunt

Our kids got to have a really fun Easter Egg Hunt sunday after Easter Dinner at Grandma Calls House. Kyle, Emily, and Shandi hid Easter eggs all over the backyard. Our kids had a lot of fun running around the backyard finding easter eggs. Calee was especially fun to watch. She would squeal and get so excited everytime she would find an easter egg. After they were done, they got to sit and open each egg and see what was inside. Some of them had candy, some had money, and some had prize tickets.
This is Calee getting ready to go outside and start Easter Egg hunting
