Fun Family Home Evening night!!!

Tonight was awesome!!! We had a really neat, spiritual family home evening lesson on Easter and why we celebrate Easter. Our kids actually sat really quiet, listened and participated (without fighting) during the lesson. After our lesson we went over to the park to help Calee continue her conquest to ride her bike without training wheels. She is doing awesome! We are so proud of her! She still panics whenever I let go, but she has almost got the hang of it. A few more nights and she will have it mastered. To celebrate a really good family home evening and Calee doing so well on her bike we took the kids out for a treat to one of our favorite places, ZEPPES! The rest of the night we spent hanging out with our best friends Chad and Jen Francom at their house. It was one of those nights that was all around just awesome!!!We are lucky to have such great kids and we love them so much!!! We are also lucky to have such great friends!!!  We are looking forward to summer and many more nights like tonight!!!

Happy Easter 2014!

Happy Easter! We feel so blessed to have the gospel of Jesus Christ in our lives. We love our Savior Jesus Christ so much and are so grateful for his sacrifice for us. We are so grateful to have Easter to celebrate his resurrection and his life. Christy and I  feel so blessed to have been married in the Salt Lake temple 15 years ago and to be blessed with 3 of the cutest, kindest,  and most loving kids. We are so proud of them and love them so much. We truly are blessed!!!

Coloring Easter Eggs

We had fun tonight at my parents house. We barbecued, played cards, and the kids got to have fun coloring Easter Eggs with some of their cousins. Here are some of their creations:

Pleasant View Easter Egg Hunt 2014

One of our kids' favorite Easter traditions is going to the Easter Egg Hunt in Pleasant View. They have always had the best Easter Egg hunt out of all the cities and we have gone for years and years. Carter is too old now, but Cambree and Calee had a blast and got tons of candy. It's also fun because our kids get to see their cousins and a lot of their friends from school there too. It was a fun morning!

Cambree's field trip to the Dinosaur Park!

Today was Cambree's field trip to the Rock and Mineral Show at the Fairgrounds and then to the Dinosaur Park. I was able to meet Cambree and be with her and her little group of friends. Since the Rock and Mineral show was at the fairgrounds, My mom, who works at the fairgrounds, was also able to come and meet us there. She bought each of the girls a back of rocks, popcorn, and drinks. It was a lot of fun. For lunch, I stopped and got Maple Express for Cambree and I and then it was off to the Dinosaur Park. We were given field guide books and an assignment to find certain dinosaurs throughout the park and write down things about them in our books. Our group did awesome! Not only were we the first group to finish, but then they wanted to try and find every dinosaur and check them off the list. They are fun group of girls and it was a really fun day. I love our Cambree Lou so much and am so glad I could be there with her today!!!

Our brothers in Long Beach!

There truly is a brotherhood among firefighters. We met a few Long Beach Firefighters at lunch and as soon as we told them that My Grandpa, My Dad, and I are all firefighters back in Utah, there was an instant bond. We were invited to their station where they gave us Long Beach Fire Department T-shirts and a tour of their station and all of their trucks. It was an awesome experience!
