Hangin' with Dad at the car show...

Kent was excited to be able to take Jake to the car show this year up in Denver. They went with a few friends and their sons and had a blast. Jake was in car heaven! It was after 11 before they got home but Jake came in with the biggest grin on his face and a free poster of some cars that he insisted on hanging in his room. This boy sure loves spending time with his cool Dad!

April Fools

My friend Robin gave me an adorable idea for April Fools Day dessert. I put a stack of plates together and frosted them to look like a yummy cake. On each of the plates I put a clue that sent the kids on a hunt for all the toppings for their "real" cream sundaes. It was a fun and nice April Fools joke. Thanks for the idea Robin!

Date night with Abbie

We have a little reward/punishment system in our house that consists of a jar for each kid and some rocks. I is very high tech! When the jar is full the kids get to plan a date night with Mom and Dad. They get to pick where they would like to eat and what activity we will be doing. Abbie was our first little charmer to fill her jar. She picked Smashburger and the movie Diary of a Wimpy Kid. I love this girl so much! What a great night. Our little girl is growing up and it is so much fun spending one on one time with her. She really is a fun person to be around!

Shirts and Skins!

This was a very silly movie. Lots of crude stuff that boys like. We laughed a lot (okay, Kent laughed a lot) and squirmed in our seats quite a few times. I am not a big fan of boogers!

Spring Break...Children's Museum

One of our free days during Spring break was spent at the Children's Museum with the McOmber's and Lovejoy's. The kids had a fantastic time and the mommies came home exhausted!
