A couple of weeks ago we decided to use our Pass of all Passes and go to the Tracy Aviary.  I wasn't too excited about going because David and I were leaving for St. George a couple of days later and I had a lot to get done.  I am so glad we went.  Both kids loved looking at all of  different kind of birds.  Logan even got to feed the pelicans and some amazon birds!

Brooklyn did so great in the stroller.  She loved looking at all of the birds.

My favorite was definitely the peacocks.  They were just roaming around right in front of us, and then they would jump on trees and buildings.

These birds were bright orange.  I wish the pictures portrayed how bright they really were.

I don't think they were supposed to, but the kids got close enough to the peacock to touch its feathers.

Brooklyn by a goose.

Logan finally started his soccer season.  We signed him up in February and he has been so excited to finally start.  We went to his organization day last Saturday and they did a little practice.  He pretty much thought it was the greatest thing ever.  Finally on Tuesday he had his first game.  The kids all voted on a team name.  They are the Tigers.  Logan had so much fun, and we all had so much fun watching him and all of the other kids.  Unfortunately, David and I were out of town so we missed his second game, but he told us it was so much fun.  We can't wait for each game to watch him play and progress!

Lined up ready and getting ready to play.  Believe it or not he is not even the smallest on his team!

In the middle of the action.  We aren't sure why, but he makes this silly face while he is chasing after the ball.

He would get so thirsty while he was playing.  He kept trying to run off the field to get water.  Something to work on!

So happy after his first game.  Hilary and Layne even made a sign for him that said "Go Logan Go!"  He for sure had the biggest fan section!  Lucky boy was even in charge of treats for the first game!  We are loving soccer and can't wait for his next game!

Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday was great. We had church first thing in the morning and David spoke. He did such a great job. I am married to an amazing man. I am so grateful that each Easter we get to be at church to remind us why we truly celebrate. The Atonement. I am also so grateful that Logan knows Easter is fun, but we celebrate because of our Savior.
After church we had the Quinney family over for a little Easter egg hunt and dinner. Logan and I had fun putting candy in the eggs, and that he got to celebrate with his cousins. When dinner was over me and the kids went to my grandparents house (David stayed at our house with his family) for our big Easter celebrations! It started out with the Easter Egg hunt. This has always been one of my favorite things and it is so great watching my kids get to experience it. Logan did great and found all of his eggs and then more in the free for all. Each egg has candy and money in it and Logan ended up finding $8.75. Brooklyn had so much fun hunting for eggs as well. She ended up with $5.45.
Once the egg hunt was over we did the annual egg drop. I asked Logan what he wanted to do with his egg and he said he wanted to wrap it with yarn. So that is what we did. He was having so much fun he kept running his egg back to get thrown again and again. I think it got thrown twice as much as anyone else, and it broke. But he loved it and I loved watching him have so much fun. It was a great night and I am so glad my grandparents were in town for all of the Easter festivities!

This is pretty much the only picture I could get of both of them smiling. Brooklyn is not to fond of posing for pictures these days.
I love Logan in this picture!
Looking for eggs!
And Brooklyn...

What a handsome boy he is!
Running his egg drop entry back to be thrown again.

All three of their eggs broke. Bummer!

Easter Saturday

Every year the Easter Bunny comes to our house on Saturday. This year was no exception, and the Easter Bunny did not dissapoint. Both Logan and Brooklyn got a new swimsuit, sandals, a kite, a new book, The Muppet Movie, and bean bag toss game, and a little bit of candy. Logan could not believe we finally had the Muppet Movie for our very own house! It is his favorite movie right now.
The Easter buckets.
Logan really wanted these gross fish bone swim trunks. Luckily for him the Easter Bunny loves him. He also starts soccer next week so he got a book called My First Soccer Game. We can't wait!
Brooklyn got the cutest new swimsuit. It has black and yellow stripes and bee wings on the back.
Saturday afternoon we always go bowling with my extended family. We love this tradition. It was so great to have my grandparents here for Easter and all of the great traditions we have. Brooklyn really wanted to pick the balls up.

Logan has always loved bowling and has gotten so much stronger since the last time we went. He didn't need a ramp at all and did really well.

We had such a great Easter Saturday. Easter Sunday will be posted soon.
