Today was Andrew's first day of Kindergarten. He is going to George Washington Academy,which starts at 8:15 and gets out at 2:50. I have been so worried about how he will handle a full day and also about how Dallin will do without his brother at daycare. Needless to say I have been a nervous wreck!! Andrew is so excited to start Kindergarten and he has been anxiously waiting to start for the last month. He was so full of excitement until we walked into the door. He sat at his desk, looked up at me and said, "Mom, I am really nervous." I reassured him, kissed him goodbye, walked out the door and started crying!! Where did the time go? It doesn't seem like he should be in Kindergarten. Well, now we start another chapter in our lives. I hope Andrew loves his first year at School, and I hope Dallin can survive daycare without his brother!!


Andrew and Dallin always have so much fun with their cousins!

San Diego

We just got back from a vacation to San Diego. We stayed in a really nice hotel that was right on the bay. The boys loved looking at all of the boats in the marina.

The first day we were there we went to the USS Midway Museum. It is a retired aircraft carrier that they have turned into a museum. This was the highight of the trip for Andrew. He loved looking at all of the jets and exploring the ship.
We spent a day at the San Diego Zoo. The kids loved looking at all of the animals.
We were able to go see the San Diego Temple...Beautiful!!
This is a really long post, but I still have a lot of pictures. I am going to take the night off and finish tomorrow!!

Summer Fun 2011

The kids and I spent a few days in Las Vegas with Mom, Shelly, Sam and Malia. We stayed at the Mandalay Bay and the kids had so much fun playing in the swimming pool. They especially liked floating around the lazy river. It was nice to get away and spend time with family. We had a great time!!

Andrew took swimming lessons this summer and he did a great job. He loves the water and is now able to swim on his own!

Catching up...

It has been awhile since I have posted anything, so I am going to try and catch up. The last time I posted was back in April and so I am going to pick it up from there! One of our favorite things to do with our family is camping and we went on a couple of fun trips this Spring. For Easter weekend we went camping at Cathedral Gorge. Here are some pictures of our Easter egg hunt.

We had a lot of fun hiking and exploring all the caves.
We always have such yummy food when Dad comes along.
We were glad to have Grandpa and Grandma come with us!

Happy Birthday Dallin!

Dallin turned two years old April 9th. We had a wonderful day celebrating his Birthday with our family. Dallin had a great time and got a lot of fun presents. We are so blessed to have Dallin in our family. He has such a sweet personality and is so much fun! Happy Birthday to our little boy!

Good Times

We have been really busy lately, but it has been a lot of fun. We were able to go to Brianhead with Grandpa Dennis and Samantha. Andrew took a ski lesson from Samantha's friend Derek and he loved it! He did a really good job and we all had a great time!

Curt, Andrew and I went to the Monster Jam Finals in Las Vegas. Andrew loved watching all of the big trucks. This year we went to the pit party and so we got to see the trucks up close. We had a fun weekend in Vegas. Dallin stayed in St. George with Grandma LeeAnn and had a great time.
