Easter Time!

 Saturday we attended the Passion play at our church and then we came home to decorate eggs.

Our Easter day was busy but the boys could hardly wait to celebrate! The boys unpacked their baskets and then headed outside to begin hunting.

We then got ready to attend the services at our church.  After that, we came home and made resurrection rolls and had a nice leisurely breakfast.  The younger boys went to the hot tub with Derrik and family while Ethan and I stayed behind.  When everyone got back, we had a nice Easter meal and then watched the new Narnia movie.  A very nice day!

Boys being boys

"It goes like this..."

They just don't fit in the same bed like they used to.

A much needed roll down a hill to solve all the worlds problems.

Ashton's Farm Open House

We attended Ashton's open house a few weeks back and had some  photos and a video to share.  He has had a great school year and we are so proud of him.  His teacher and the principal have decided that he's "the poster child for inclusion" and we are so happy with how he's done.

K-2 Choir Makes it's Debut!

Cameron arrives at the ceremony his his class.

The choir that the school started back in March has done it's very first performance!  We sang at the flag ceremony on Friday morning.  Ethan ran sound for me and Derrik took pictures and video.  The whole school got to see the kids perform.  We had so much fun!  We hope to sing one more time before end of the year.

Apple Valley Adventure

Feeding the fish
Rainbow trout

These two LOVE getting wet!

While visiting the parents this past weekend, we checked out a fish hatchery and  the Mojave Narrows Regional Park.  The boys got to feed the fish at the hatchery and then we headed over to the park to play.  There was a donkey, camel and horses there as well as a water play area and playground.  I think we'll be back!

The Red Bass

Holding it for the first time, Cameron has the amp

He's so happy!

Ethan got his bass today.  He and Cam have been standing by the door, willing UPS to come up the hill and he finally came.  It's so pretty!  The fiddling has begun and I don't see him getting tired of it any time soon.  Here's the first of many videos.

Ethan's Birthday

Wow!  Can you believe Ethan is 12?  We took him and some of his friends to a glow-in-the-dark mini-golf place and then had pizza and cake.  He had a nice birthday!

Backwards Day

The boys celebrated backwards day at school this week.  Here are photos:
