Life 2011: Week 16

Monday, April 11, 2011

Our big adventure today was visiting the "plane museum." The Hill Air Force Base has a great museum of lots of old planes and helicopters and fun stuff. The best part - it's FREE! The kids enjoyed seeing all the planes - JJ especially loved seeing his name on one! They also liked being able to board an old helicopter. It was a great day.

Happy 6th Birthday to my Bethie Girl! We had a great day full of going to see "Hop", bowling, and dinner at Olive Garden. We returned back to the condo for cake, ice cream, and present opening. I think Beth had an amazing day and she kept saying that it was the best birthday ever! It was fun to be on vacation and just have the whole focus be on her and not the other life things that seem to be going on at home! We were even able to make her a princess cake!

We took a break from adventures and had a nice day in the condo today. We played games, and watched movies, and played the Wii. Joey and I played on our computers and we just had a wonderful day away from work and stresses. This has been such a great vacation for us and we are so blessed to have this travel plan where we can stay in great condos and make homemade food and go on adventures and just be together. We ended the night, having hot chocolate by the fireplace. Kind of a strange thing to do during SPRING BREAK - but the weather was just that kind of wintery day!

We visited the Treehouse Museum today. It is such a fun place for the kids and so many things to do. Beth even was brave enough to join in the stage acting of the story this time. She was a singing princess and I think she had fun. Joey surprised us all with a great gift when we got home. He had purchased an awesome puppet theater with 2 stories. The museum was just trying to get rid of it and Joey got an AMAZING deal. It was so fun to see him trying out as a puppeteer! We will definitely have to practice with this one - but so fun! We also made our "dinosaur eggs". It is a new way of coloring eggs and we love it - it is definitely going to be an annual tradition.

We met Uncle Cody, Aunt Becki, and Mallory at a park in Ogden today for a lovely picnic. I even made some funky deviled eggs with our colored dinosaur eggs! The kids played and we had our lunch before heading back to the condo. We surprised Cody and Becki with their own 1-bedroom condo for the weekend!

It was a fun day and finally a nice weather. We spent all day with Cody, Becki and Mallory. We had meals, played basketball, played tennis, visited, made mini-pizzas, and played games. It was a great day! I really enjoy having my brother and his wife as FRIENDS as well as family. It's been so great1

It was so very sad to pack up and leave today. I just wasn't ready to get back to life. As we traveled down the canyon and passed this beautiful waterfall - I just kind of felt depressed. But I'm sure we'll be back. I just really enjoyed being away. We came home and unpacked and tried to get the kids adjusted to being back home. I guess vacation just can't last forever.

And here is my weekly layout:
