Spring Break Fun

This year we got our first true snow storm on the first day of Spring Break. Joseph was thrilled to finally have snow to play in and it really only messed with our plans for a couple of the days. Once the snow had melted we resumed our activities. Too bad I only took pictures from one of our adventures. :( We had a great time at the zoo and I finally got to see the new exhibit, I think I was more excited then the kids.

First Blizzard of the year.

The mountain goat was enjoying the sunny morning.

Lily bug!


The bears were having quite a conversation.

I am watching you.

I love penguins! They are on my must list every time we go to the Zoo.

Mr. Hippo was looking for a snack.

I have never seen Monkeys sit as still as these two did.

The gang!


Where is the seal hiding?

Denver Museum of Nature and Science Field Trip

I had the opportunity to go with Joseph on his field trip to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and Planetarium. It was a fun and busy day of trying to see everything, sadly we didn't make it to every exhibit but we were able to hit the highlights and the planetarium show on our Solar System was incredible. I am so thankful that I am able to share in these experiences with Joseph.

Weekend trip to Elko

So a long time ago, in March Ben had a business trip to Twin Falls, ID which happens to not be very far from Elko, NV so I tagged along and Ben dropped me off at Dixie's while he went to his meeting. I had a great time just hanging out with Zach, Dixie, Melanie and Calvin. Dixie and I were able to get in some good girl time and shopping, I got in some great snuggle time with Melanie and Calvin and the guys had some good guy time. We love and miss our family so much and wish that we could all be closer, but for now we cherish every moment we do get to be with each other. We love you guys!!

Yum....Hot Chocolate!!
