Easter 2017--to be continued

Kyran and Jack the Easter bunny found them!

Never too old for an Easter basket right!  At least not when there's a gas card.

I love this guy!

Let the Easter egg hunt begin!

The secret to Easter egg hunts as the kids get older is what's inside the eggs!

Kael checking out his loot!

Dessert-well in case you are wondering what the heck that is, it was supposed to be carrot patch brownies, the orange chocolate dipped strawberries were supposed to be the carrot's.  Well sometimes you win and sometimes you lose, but they were yummy with vanilla ice cream.

And a one day late Happy Birthday to Sarah!!  Happy Easter girls and Brandon, did you get the special pictures Papa sent?

Brad's Backies a Birthday and Deep Creek Hot Springs

Brad decided last minute on Friday to head up to Salt Lake and spend the weekend with Kyle.  Lucky for them they got a storm and had a two good days of skiing.

Brian celebrated a big birthday!  Happy birthday Bri, we all love you so much!

And this is what Craig and I did.  We did the Deep Creek Hot Springs hike.  I had never been here before and it's very cool.  Of course I did the slackline to the hot springs perfectly because who wants to fall into that freezing water!

This was the start of the trail (and it was cold!).  

The hike is downhill going in, the wildflowers along the trail were amazing.  When you get to the hot springs you have to wade across a creek and then there are 7 different pools, some hotter than others. The hike back is a pretty steep uphill, if you do this bring plenty of water, even though it wasn't hot today the hot springs are dehydrating and it's a semi strenuous hike back.

Craig surprised me with peanut butter, a yummy treat before we headed back.  Mmmmm...gotta have some peanut butter.

SoCal weekend, Skiing and the Beach

The Jex family building amazing sandcastles at the beach, meanwhile Brad was skiing and Dad and I were having lunch in Palm Springs.  Saturday night we went to see Shen Yun.  It was a Chinese ballet.  It was also an interesting political/religious statement which I wasn't expecting, but interesting and beautiful.

And a really good day today for Brad, but I'll have to ask him before I post a pic!

Happy Birthday Brad!

Happy birthday to this guy.  He continually inspires me to think outside the box, to be genuine, gentle, and honest. I love him with all my heart!!!

Kerri gave us a book for Christmas that was all of our old blog posts.  Everyone has enjoyed it and it made me want to go back to trying to preserve some of our family memories.'s only March 26 now, but no better time to start than now right!

We started the year with a great cabin trip. I'm trying to upload Brent's video.  I'll have to work on it.
I had a very fun girls weekend in Salt Lake with Kerri, Sarah, Ally and Kylie.

The boys got even with us and had a man trip to the cabin. There's some more fun videos there too, I'll see if I can manage to load.  
We are lucky to have Brent and Kylie with us for a few days, yesterday we went to Long Beach and had Cambodian food.
Yum!  Those are frog legs on Craig's plate.

Ok, so there's a start to restarting the family scrapbook!
