Last Saturday we took the boys to Supercross in SLC. We had so much fun! It rained for most of the day, so we were pretty soaked, but the weather was dry for the races.
We took the boys down to the pit before the races and they enjoyed looking at the bikes, meeting some riders and Josh even got some pictures with the girls (which were wearing lots more clothes then usual thanks to the cold weather).
The races were fantastic- we had tickets on the second row up from the track (thanks Gary!).
On the last race, Chad Reed was in the lead for just over half of the race when Bubba Stewart passed him and ended up winning- though it was so close the whole time. So much excitement! Bradley is now sure that he wants to race when he grows up. When people would cheer for the racers, Bradley would stand up on Ryan's legs and lift his fisted hands into the air- acting like they were cheering for him. Keep dreamin' little buddy!

Hiking the Y

We decided to take the kids to hike up to the Y. I read about it online and it seemed easy enough. 1.2 miles each way- not too bad. What we didn't realize is how STEEP it was going to be! Everyone did really good until about half way up and then the boys decided that they were tired, their legs hurt and their feet ached. But we continued to the top where we stopped for snacks- we were so proud of out little guys! Lisa ended up carrying Bradley most of the way down on her back- but Josh and Zack took on the mountain like little mountain goats!


The day before Easter, we met Kricket and Tom with Annie at a local farm for some Easter fun. Unfortuantely it turned out to be fairly lame, but at least we had Annie to entertain us. The one thing at the farm that did excite the boys was the Star Wars display- though the men working there were a little "different".
Easter morning we had some happy boys- lots of candy, new PS2 games and lacrosse sticks.
We also made some tasty egg sandwiches for breakfast- Yummy!


We had some of our favorite friends visit this week. Tonia and Andre met us with their sweet girls to have some fun on Monday night. We went to the tulip festival at Thanksgiving point and then out to dinner. We sure miss living down the road from them!

how to make girls...

Zacks conversation with the neighbor today went like this:
Zack to neighbor lady: I want a baby sister.
Neighbor: well maybe someday when you grow up you will have a little girl.
Zack: Nope, I don't know how to make baby girls...
Neighbor: well, maybe you should ask your mommy how.

I informed her that I obviously do not know how to make baby girls either. She was no help- she has two boys....
And (for the record) NO I am not pregnant-

note to self....

When a three year old says, "mom, smell my finger."

Never, under any circumstances, smell it....
