Easter Egg Hunt

Michael loved Grandma's Easter egg hunt this year. He was so excited to find eggs with yummy jellybeans inside. He thought is was so much fun & when it was over I had to pry his basket out of his hands... way to protect your treats little dude!

Wyoming Getaway

Johnn decided that we needed a little break from reality so we headed up to the cabin for a couple days last weekend. It was absolutely beautiful and Michael was in heaven. This is us out snowshoeing.

Michael loved the snowmobiles.

My parents bought these cute little snowshoes that we just couldn't resist trying out.

Michael was fascinated with all the animals on the walls of the cabin. We now have 2 elk, a buck, a mountain lion, and a coyote. He was so excited about all of them and kept pointing to each while doing his "woo-woo". According to Mikey, all animals are still dogs, but we're working on it.

Our little cowboy.

Michael's first snowmobile ride.

Not a Baby Anymore

Michael loves balls & walking up and down the stairs.

Waking up happy in the morning.

We snuck in to take this picture while he was sleeping. It just doesn't look comfortable to me, but he has finally started sleeping through the night.

What a rough life... just chilling in parents bed with my blankie, sippy cup, and remote control.

My mom calls him our little "cliff dweller". The kitchen counter is his favorite place in the entire house & he's always my little helper.

Sunday Best
We are so happy to have Michael in nursery. Since there are only 4 kids in our nursery, they let him in early.

Playing at Jungle Jims. Michael loved it & I was amazed to see that it hasn't changed one bit in the last 15 years.

Michael has learned how to say cheese for the camera.

Ward Ball

This is our Stake "Old Ladies" team. We had such a blast playing over the past couple months & in Region play last week. I was the lucky one who was called to coach this year & it's harder than I thought it would be calling the shots & playing, especially when you have 15 players show up for each region game... if only they all would have shown up for the practices. I hope everyone enjoyed it. Now on to the next activity, the only thing is that we haven't decided what to do this year besides volleyball. I have been thinking about trying futsol, tennis, miniature golf, or ultimate frisbee. I'm open to suggestions.

Parents to be!

That's right, Natalie & Dave have their first little one on the way!
