April and May


Here's a few snippets from the last months:

{this was one of the reasons we needed dirt, there shouldn't be a drop off the edge of the concrete}


{Evie and I went on a date to see Beauty and the Beast (not 3D, she just found these glasses)}

{attending the baptism of a couple boys in the ward, there are a bunch of helpful kids that love our babies}

{little monkeys doing things they shouldn't}

 {lots of just hanging out together}



 {foggy evening in our side yard}

{a new niece! Nora, born to Kinsey and Lane}

{Curt brought a couple of the kids to a party at his work}



We started a Whole30.
I made it a measly 5 days being 100% (I just want oatmeal or cereal for breakfast).
Curt made it a lot longer.
I've continued to make more healthier meals though, so it wasn't all for naught.
Maybe if I enjoyed being a cook more, but I don't.
Constant. Vegetable. Chopping.






{Evie had her preschool end-of-year program}

{she got the best storyteller award, always chattering :)

 {one of the girls at church who help me with the kids every week, she was also a helper in Evie's preschool. love her}

{Desmond's class had a mother's day spa, it was cute}


 
{my husband is also cute}

{mother's day}



{Curt brought Evie to 'bring your kid to work' day, she got to go to lunch at waffle house with him}

{one of Des' cool contraptions}

{a birthday party with friends before they moved to Utah}

{we got some dress up clothes from our neighbors, she always wears many things at once}

{neighborhood pool party}


{my aunt, uncle, and cousin stopped by on a road trip}

{instead of cake, I made orange and cinnamon rolls for my birthday. I turned 33}

{this is what our pool looks like in the morning after the neighborhood swim team is done practicing. This is when I like to go, with no people}

 {Curt had an overnight leadership retreat at work. He got to have some fun. 100 rounds left it's mark on his shoulder though}

Utah - beginning of May


I'm so lucky that, even if I can't live by family, I can visit pretty frequently.
We had a dinner thing at BYU at the beginning of May, so I headed out at the end of April with two kids and Curt joined a bit later with the other two.



One of the reasons we didn't all go together was Des had a farm field trip that Curt had signed up to join the class for. It ended up being a good thing Des had his dad, as he threw up there and had to go home and sleep. 
That night was supposed to be the church father/son campout, but sickness made it so that my boys didn't attend.

I joined Mom and Melynda that night at Texas Roadhouse to celebrate Ellie's 8th birthday.

{our kids are expert travelers at this point}


{I love these two together, I'm glad they have each other}

{checking out Melynda's new car}

{Mom's landscaping is coming in great}





{a visit to my cousin's house, always a favorite for me and my kids}

{We ran into my aunt and uncle's neighbor at BYU, love small world moments}
 
And then back home again.
