Here's what we have been up to the last few months. (Thank goodness for this blog or I can imagine that I wouldn't remember what we did years from now!)
Yellowstone: A Truly Unforgettable Trip
Here are a few highlights from our road trip in February:
-A 14 hour truck ride wasn't too bad for the older girls. Natalie... not a fan :)
-Snowmobiling in the mountains was beautiful, even if the snow conditions were less than ideal.
-An afternoon trip to the Wolf Discovery Center was a perfect day for my little nature observers.
-A trip to the IMAX theater to watch "Paddington" was great! (Even Natalie enjoyed her first movie theater experience and stayed mostly quiet. She gave us all the giggles when Paddington did something naughty and the movie went quiet and she said "UH OH.")
-Many hours were spent in the pool! The girl's favorite part was swimming!
-Last day there... Joe totaled his new sled, but he was not hurt! Thank goodness!
-On the way home, there was a flat tire, Natalie locking us out of the car, and another many hours of Natalie not enjoying the ride! But we survived! and the girls are already talking about next time! :)
My Frozen Princess Turned 6!
My little Kindergartner seems to have grown up too much lately. She has taken much pleasure in reading us stories and teaching her sisters all sorts of new things that she is learning in school. Her new favorite song to sing has something to do with "I can't wait to be a first grader!" (sigh, why do they grow up so fast?). The end of February we celebrated another one of her birthdays and of course the theme of choice was Disney's Frozen. With us being out of town right before her birthday, I ordered a cake this year and it was quite a hit!
Easter: Let's Celebrate!
Easter time came up quickly and we had lots of fun celebrating. We did some egg dying, egg hunting, family gathering, and of course celebrating in church.
We had many other busy days in between, and now we are eagerly waiting for the weather to start acting like Spring so we can enjoy more time outside! Happy Easter and Happy Spring!
