Random spring photographs #2

King Carnival. Lucy on the rock climbing wall.
 The most amazing rainbow Lucy and I have ever seen...the picture does not do it justice!
 Dustin put up a basketball hoop and it's a hit!
 MESA club: bridge weight contest and star gazing end of year party.
 Hair cut!  Waited 6 months and donated 11 inches!
 "Wasn't me!"  He is cruising the walls and furniture and stands alone.  And is into everything...unraveling toilet paper, taking trash out of the trash cans, emptying cabinets....oh, goody!
 Find the dove in her nest in our grape vines.
 We are documenting that Hank loves sucking on my chin.  Luckily no teeth, otherwise this would be painful.  But one tooth has finally broken through his gums at ten and a half months old!

Flaming Gorge

Fish on, Jarin.
 Fish on, Russ.
 Fish on, Lucy.
 Lap buddy, Hank.
 Play with your food, veggie straws.
 Hank stayed on my lap pretty much the entire trip.  This was tricky with other people to help, but of course, an hour before we were going to leave he started to explore!
 Here piggy, piggy.
Antelope Flats was where it was at this time around.
The kids built a canal into the lake and all the dirt they were distributing into the water brought the fish in. It was a win - win!
Finished canal. I posted several pics because Russ made a variety of expressions!
At the cabin.

Random spring photographs

Jarin and Lucy played soccer and this is the only picture I have...a failed selfie Jarin took.  Just picture a bunch of kids running on a field!
 One of life's sweet rewards...applesauce!
I love my tulips!  I need to figure out the name of these and plant more!
 We've had a wet and windy spring.  One wind storm took down a tree.
And Lucy's piano recital went great!

Russ is 4 years old!

We went to see Kung Fu Panda 3 during the day for Russ's birthday.
 Robot cake.
 Presents!
 Make a wish...
or a funny face!
 You're kind and funny and thoughtful.  You love back rubs and wrestling and candy.  You are a fast runner and love getting the mail and eggs everyday.  You love sitting on Hank and you love pizza. 
We love you buddy!

Lucy's Art Birthday Party

 Instead of a birthday cake we did paint palettes with cake balls.
The birthday girl palette with candles!
 Art party decor.  I used some of Lucy's artwork on the mantle too.
 Lucy with nine of her closest friends.
 Family presents after the party...Legos and a karaoke machine.
 The boys at the party.
Lucy is growing up too fast! She is kind and creative and thoughtful.  She is super busy with soccer, MESA, Junior Fire Corp, activity days, babysitting, and friends!  She is helpful, loves baking, creating things, and listening for details.  On the last day of school she went to a fun center with friends sans adults, and she had the time of her life!  Even though her friends are definitely becoming priority one, she will always be priority number one to me!
