Uncle Sam and Jamie come to Florida!!!

We were so lucky to have my brother and his girlfriend come visit us for a few days!! Yay!! I LOVE it when family comes!! We spent our first day at Wild Florida of course. The weather was beautiful! It was a great day to get stuck on an airboat (not for too long luckily).

 We spent a lot of time swimming in the pool. You know no one throws the kids around quite like Uncle Sam!!
 We spent another one of our days at the beach. I just watched while Uncle Sam road the waves, built sand castles and played with the kids. Can I keep him around all the time?!

Our last day together we swam and grilled. It really was so fun to have them. Come back soon!!

Family Beach Day

The fishing was so good when Daniel took the kids to the beach he was itching to go back. Well I will never ever turn down a trip to the beach... especially with our dad so we went!! Unfortunately the fishing was not so good this time (only caught 1 fish) but we had a good time!

More pictures from March and April

My Church going children.
 Where's Benny?
 Definitely worth documenting... we've had 2 sulcata tortoises join our family. Lightening and Thunder. I'm hoping I can keep these guys alive!! 
 Just hanging with my best buddy all day. 
 Our neighbors dog, Emmett. He likes riding on the golf cart with us and is over so often he is practically our dog. 

 A Happy Birthday dinner for my mother-in-law! 
 Some serious cub scouting going on here. Carving an ivory soap bar. 
 Just a typical night over here. 
 Our soccer star ended another season!! She did great!
 This kid right here won 1st place in the pinewood derby for the Bears and 2nd place overall!!

GIrls Cruise Woohoo!!!

Yes, you read that correctly. I went on a girls cruise!! End of April I sailed away into the Atlantic with 7 of my best girl friends and enjoyed 4 days and 3 nights of rest, relaxation, sunshine, delicious food, laughs and lots and lots of fun!! Man was it so much fun!! I needed it! Whens the next girls trip?!
While I was away, Daniel was busy being super dad. Took Benny to work Friday, let the kids have a sleepover Friday night with their cousins, took the kids to the beach Saturday and stayed in a hotel that night. Went out to breakfast Sunday and got the kids off to school Monday!! Clearly I can do this more often!

Happy Easter!

Easter was good to us this year, as always. We did our traditional egg dying after Bennt went to sleep, just to make it easier on me! He had a super fun Easter themed playdate at Mavericks house so he didn't miss out on too much! The Easter bunny spoiled us as usual and we enjoyed a family dinner and Easter egg hunt. Of course we really enjoyed feeling the spirit of Easter, knowing that this life isn't the end, that I can be with my family forever and that I have a Savior who lived a perfect life and was resurrected so I can be both those things someday also!! Happy Easter!!
