Today, our children planned a day for the whole family to get together to celebrate Duane and I's 25th wedding anniversary. Our Anniversary isn't official until the 14th but Alex is head to Korea this next week for his National Guard training for the next month. So the plan was to meet in St. George and go play at Snow Canyon and have a picnic so we did just that.
Duane wanted to got there because that's where we went for our 1st Anniversary.

I have to say today was a lot of fun and we couldn't of had a more beautiful day to have planned it on. We hiked, climbed, eat, and played in the soft sand. With all that fun there was only 2 of us that put holes in our pants, not bad for having 9 people.

Here are a few pictures of our Fun.
 Our group picture when we first started out hikes.

Who wouldn't want to spend time with this face, the whole time we hiked Duane carried Lydia, and Lydia would see me and reach out for me, she loves her grannie! She is so lovable you just want to squeeze her.
 Jared and Jessica were the first ones to the top, they are doing a Duane pose form a picture that was taken 24 years ago.
 Working as a family to get everyone back down.

 Okay, I don't know where this girl comes up with things, she's got to be the funniest thing ever. Once in the sand dunes either she thought she would lay there and take a nap (which I thought sounded fun) or she would just fall backwards and then roll down the hills. When she would fall there was a few times she landed on her head first before her butt I thought for sure she would quite or cry, but no she would laugh and do it again.

 Lydia entertaining the family by eating dirt.

 and of course you can't leave the sand dunes without putting someone in it. Hunter was the lucky winner.
As we were leaving the moon just started to show itself over the mountain, what a way to finish the day.
can't wait to see the kid's pictures they took.

Bunnies, Bunnies and more Bunnies

So I've had a couple more therapy session the last few week, I've been dragging this one out for a while. There where so many cute Easter Bunny Crafts out there I couldn't decide which ones to make. 

On top of that I'm having Bunco at my house this month and thought maybe I would make the gifts. But now that I'm all done, not sure they are going to work for Bunco. I guess I have looked at them for so long that I'm questioning myself if anyone else would like them.  Jessica tells me NO THEY WON'T but I can give them to her. (she takes charity from me a lot). So I might have to go shopping and do something different.

There's a few I like a lot, and then others I question. Here are all the ones I made.

And just as I cleaned up my craft room and thing put away, MaKayla came by and had an idea, she wanted to design a craft herself, he drew it out on paper, and we put it on wood, and taught here how to use the tools, We just spent the last 4-5 hours together making her creation. I had fun working with her, it was very peaceful and fun until the boys (Hunter and Sam) came home, then it was....... Let's just say we ditched them and went out to grab some food.
