Hi-Ho Hi-Ho it's another recital we go....

Dorothy had a dance recital on Saturday night and they danced to 'Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho' from Snow White.  The entire recital was Disney theme so the other kids were actually really good during it!:)

We had to get there an hour early to get good seats and Violet spent the *extra* time dancing on the stage!

Getting ready for Easter!

We had FHE and dyed eggs as a family (we also talked about the true meaning of Easter!)  The kids loved dyeing the eggs but only Dorothy will eat them kind of, James HATES hard boiled eggs but not too worry I finished them all off already!
Getting ready to dye eggs (yes that is Preston in an apron he INSISTED he HAD to wear one like the girls!)

Dyeing the eggs

Fun family time!

Our beautiful eggs- nothing fancy.  Trust me it was serious WORK trying to keep the kids from spilling dye all over the kitchen:)!

I have a smile of relief that the dye is down the drain!

More Spring Break!

We also went to Pirate's Island (glorified Chuck-E-Cheese) and had lunch and let the kids play games.
Eating lunch

Playing games!!

The next day we headed to Salt Lake to visit temple square and take the kids to the Children's Book of Mormon exhibit.  They played there for about 2 hours!!  
The kids dancing (Lillian and Dorothy did this for about an hour!)

Helping to 'translate the plates!'

Catching fish on 'Lehi's ship'

It was a beautiful Spring day and Temple square was magnificent with all the flowers in bloom!

*the last thing we did was go see the movie Rio the kids liked it a lot more than Hop and so did I!

Spring Break!

Last week we had Spring Break, we just had a 'stay-cation' and lined up fun things to do.  I am exhausted but the kids had a wonderful time!
First off we went and saw the movie "Hop" after the movie ALL the kids go up front and dance!

Dorothy and I at the movie!

Next we went to a bouncy-gymnastics play place.  The kids LOVED it!

Rock climbing wall

Pressy our little climber!

I have fallen and I can't get up!

Violet wanted to spend most of the time being pushed on a swing!

*more to come!

Ward Temple Night!

My friends and I had been trying to plan a night to go play laser tag, after a few failed attempts we decided to combine ward temple night with laser tag.  Weird you say?  Yes but totally fun!!!  We have decided we are going to make this a tradition in the hopes that it will raise the numbers!
The Provo Temple!

Right after the session (yes that's snow on my hair, I know it's April but Mother nature must be unaware of the date!)  We jumped in the car and changed in-route

Playing our second game of Laser Tag!!!  It was a night of fun (but being the only people over the age of 20 *including management* we all felt a little old!)
