We will be here...

In 4 Days!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh lovely San Diego!!
Tommy and I are going to go look for our new house and get away for a while. We are rolling in our 5 year anniversary into this trip so it's going to be great! 9 days with no kids ( my mom has graciously offered to keep BOTH kids)! It will be non-stop fun, relaxing, dining out (at no kids allowed restaurants), going to the beach, and more. We could not be more excited!

We were so lucky to have more visitors this past week. My family drove to our house to hang out with us, and celebrate a belated birthday for Ashton. We had such a great time with them. We had some fun times shopping and finding cute easter outfits for all of the kids, and on Saturday, we took everyone to a place called Amazing Jakes. It had some fun kid rides and arcade games. It also had a rock wall, laser tag, and go carts. It was such a fun day! My mom or "MiMi" to Ashton made him a really great Cars cake. He accidentally saw the cake on the cupboard before dinner and would not eat. He just kept saying "Mcqueen cake" over and over again. When we finally put candles in it and sang to him he was soooo excited. We made the cake with a red velvet mix, so it was extra colorful. My mom got him an awesome Hot Wheels bike that he is in love with. Every morning when he sees it he says "biiiiiike" with a huge grin on his face. Between that and the Mcqueen race track and cars grandma Bell gave him he is in heaven. Ashton and Weston had so much fun with Jameson, Sharielle and Alexa. They played so great. It was sad to see everyone leave. Thanks family for coming and having so much fun with us! We will see you soon!

We had a very packed weekend. Kimmie and Grandma Bell made a quick stop to Denver on their way back home from Utah. We were able to go to the Air Force/BYU womens basketball game on Saturday. Tommys sis. Marianne is on the team so she worked it out to stay with us for the rest of the weekend instead of going home with the team. We enjoyed the game, eating out, going to the mall and finding Kimmie a prom dress (woot woot!), making cupcakes for church, relaxing, visiting, playing, re-celebrating Ashtons birthday and much more. All of that coupled with the time change made for an exhausting but GREAT weekend. I am still recovering. Thanks everyone for making the trek out here. The boys had so much fun!!

Lunch for a "star"

Ashton and I had so much fun with lunch the other day. Weston was down for a nap so I took advantage of having time just me and Ashton. We made the quesadilla together, cut out the stars,  then enjoyed lunch together. He even got to enjoy it on his Lightning McQueen plate!!

Fun in the sun!

We have had such great weather here in Parker! This 70 degree weather is giving us a nice foreshadowing of what's to come in sunny San Diego!!!
