March 2015 and Jackson's Birthday

Tired Lucy. She still loves her blankie! I have to find the pic from 2 years ago where she's asleep in the same spot with her blanket. 😊 I love her. 

Jackson needed a haircut badly, and it was his crazy hair day and his birthday the next day, so Kirtis just cut it into a Mohawk. He looked pretty crazy and cool!

The kids off to school for crazy hair day.
Jackson's birthday! Can't believe he's 10! He wanted a giant nerf gun. We surprised him with an iPod (music only) and hid it in the nerf gun packaging.

He was pretty surprised and happy! Jackson is the best kid ever! Such a great big brother, a hard worker, super smart, and has such a kind heart. We love you Jackson!

Mt Rushmore Trip 2015- Waterpark

One of the things we love about going to Rapid City, South Dakota is staying at a hotel attached to Watiki Indoor waterpark. It's a great place to be able to play while the weather outside is still cold.  The kids love going down the big slides, and Lucy is getting more comfortable going down the slides in the playground area.

Mt. Rushmore Trip 2015

We headed up to Rapid City, South Dakota for the kids "spring break" (just a long weekend).... We love staying at the hotel connected to Watiki indoor Water Park and getting to see some sights. It's a great way to get out of town when the weather is still questionable! 
 The cute travelers in our new van! We bought it in Dec 2014.

 Quick drive through Custer State Park on the way to Wind Cave... saw some buffalo. :)
 Inside Wind Cave... really cool cave! The big kids loved it.... Lucy kept saying she wanted to go back to the hotel. ha ha.

 At Mount Rushmore

 I love this sweet face!
 and this one 
 and this one!
 We found a place to climb around close to Mt. Rushmore... the kids loved climbing on all the big boulders. 
 Love her! We started the "I love you" sign at school, as a quick way to say hi, when she passed by my room while I was teaching. 

 These guys climbed a really tall boulder! 

It was a great getaway during a very busy school year. Love this bunch!

Winter 2015... randomness

Some random pics form Winter 2015... Lucy's list of her "favorite things" from preschool. Lucy dressed up for her fancy "tea party" at preschool. Ms. Amee  (Hicks) was amazing. Lucy loved her and she loved Lucy. It was a sweet and growing experience for Lucy to come to Potter with me for school.

My baby bump growing! 

We discovered Lucy loves gaucamole!! She licked the bowl clean!
 We did a bathroom remodel of the Kid's bathroom!!
