Candy Land

Connor and I have been playing a lot of Candy Land lately! He has a new found love for it. I can't say it is the most exciting game but I know these days will be gone before I know it so I am happy to play as many games as he wants if i can hold on to my baby just a little longer :)

When Sydney brought home this book from school I couldn't help but smile. I used to pick this book from the cupboard at my grandmas house. So many memories! It could not have come at a better time. Today is grandmas birthday :) Not a day goes by that I don't think of her and the wonderful legacy she left behind! I love you grandma and Happy Birthday!

Sydney gave our FHE lesson tonight about prayer! I am so grateful to be able to teach my children the things that mean so much to me :)

Snow Day 2013

These pictures don't really do it justice but I don't think I can throw the snow any higher! I seriously love days like this and the kids were thrilled to have a snow day from school! We have played in the snow, read books, watched movies and lounged in our jammies all day!

Viva Las Vegas

The beautiful view from on top of the Eiffel Tower!! We were lucky enough to tag along with the in-laws on a trip to Vegas! I was a little nervous taking the kids but it really was great and we had a blast!

We started in St. George and saw the production if the Little Mermaid at Tuachan!! It was fantastic!!

Sydney and Connor loved the seeing all the cool people at the Venetian!!

Sydney said that after all was said and done her favorite thing was going on the gondola ride on the Canal at the Venetian! She just sparkled and you could tell it was just truly magical for her!

We took another day and headed over to see the Hoover Dam! What an amazing sight!

Ryan really surprised me and Sydney with tickets to see the best dance crew around! They were so entertaining and fantastic to watch :)

Sorry about the sideways pictures but we went over to the Rio and the kids LOVED getting the necklaces and loved all the lights and music! I have such fond memories of this vacation when I was young and it was fun to show my kids!

We made our way over to the Mirage and saw the dolphin and tiger exhibit! They had a baby dolphin that was only 1 month old that the kids loved and the tigers were great to see :)

Viva Las Vegas Part 2

While we were in Las Vegas we decided to take a day and visit the Grand Canyon! It was so beautiful and I am so glad we took the opportunity! Connor was talking to grandma looking out over the edge and said "Grandma, who made this?" To which she answered "Well God did" Connor said "God? Oh yeah I forgot!" He is always making us laugh! We visited the aquarium at Mandalay Bay! so many fun animals that the kids really loved!

Of Course we had to visit Caesar's Palace!

We got some tickets to see Nathan Burton! He is a comedian/magician! The kids loved the show! His magic was great :)

We went swimming almost every morning bright and early. It was fun but the pool was not very fun at all. We were all pretty disappointed but I guess the kids had fun!

Ryan and I were lucky enough to go see the Blue Man group! They were so great!

The Lions at MGM kept the kids entertained for a while! They were very active with their trainers while we were there which made it fun.

We went to M&M World a few times! Of course it was one of the kids favorites!
