Brooks' Curious Birthday

This boy loves Curios George.  So for his 2nd Birthday we had to do a Curious George party. 

One of my favorite pictures of Brooks on his Birthday
We had a photo booth with Curious George props and mostly everyone got into having their picture taken for Brooks' Birthday.

Easter Egg Hunt 2012

This morning we tried and were very unsuccessful at the Riverton City Easter Egg hunt.  We were on our way to the Draper hunt when the lines to get into the park were just ridiculous so we quickly drove down the road to Riverton and barely got there in time.  I dropped the girls off with Aly while I found parking and by the the time I made it over to where Brooks could get some eggs they had already started and were gone in seconds.  The girls didn't fair much better and we left with some pretty upset kids.

Luckily John and LeeAnn's Ward was having hunt in their neighborhood and it saved the day. There were eggs everywhere and the kids were able to fill up their whole buckets and forget about the terrible morning we had had.  Afterwards we went to the Ferran's to decorate our Easter Eggs before heading home.

Kids first time Skiing

This morning we went up Skiing with all the Brothers and my Dad and then in the afternoon we had all the kids come up and learn to ski on the bunny hill.  It was a perfect day for skiing and it was fun to have everyone together skiing like we used to do when we were younger.  I guess having Ryan come in town gave us a good excuse to go up and it was a lot of fun trying to teach the kids.  Maddie, Colton, Alex, Gracie and Isabelle all tried.  

Gracie had some interest and did pretty good but then all she wanted to do was drink hot chocolate.  All the other kids really picked up on it quick and graduated to the bigger learning hill.  By the end we had some good skiers and even Gracie wanted to try the larger hill.  Hopefully in a couple weeks we can try it again.

You can't see Gracie but I am trying to teach her to lean forward and not backwards

Alex couldn't stop so he just sat on his Skis

Gracie was a little tougher to teach, she spent a lot of time on the ground

Colton getting the hang of it

We graduated to the bigger hill!

Once she got on the big hill she really got the hang of it

By the end she was doing really good

I think Gracie had more fun drinking the Hot Chocolate

Everyone but Alex (He had to use the restroom) after skiing
