Egg Coloring

I love watching the kids color eggs.  It is always fun to see what they come up with.  This year the Armstrongs stopped by to help us.  We had these eggs colored in no time...

Bryce colored all his eggs green (no big surprise)
Then he wanted to eat one and before we could stop him he took a bite shell and all.

Jeremiah made some multi colored eggs

Carli used all the colors of the rainbow
Yep, they each did it different and all of the eggs were great!

Our Garden

We have decided to try planting a garden again.  We are hoping to get lots of yummy fruits and veggies from it.  We are trying the square foot garden method.  It requires some building of boxes but hopefully it will be worth our effort.

Matt the builder....
and the researcher.
Next step to plant the seeds....
now we wait and hope to get some things growing... we will keep you posted!

All Good Things Must Come to an End

The last few days of Spring Break were cold and wet.  We were suppose to stay at the Beach but at the last minute had to change our plans.  We ended up in Palm Springs... it was a little warmer.

Before we headed to Palm Springs we went with the Adventure Group to the Wild Animal Park.

Bryce had birds on his head and all over him.  He wasn't scared, like I thought he would be.  He LOVED it!

Carli enjoyed feeding the animals.

Then we were off to Palm Springs.....

were we swam in the heated pools

and went on safari in the living desert were Carli was our tour guide 

the kids crawled in eggs...

checked out animals

brushed the goats

sat on a cheetah

held a butterfly

yep Jeremiah and Carli were lucky enough to have a butterfly land on their finger

played in Gecko Gulch

after a long day at the living desert we visited G and G Robbins .  They prepared an excellent dinner and homemade pies!  We loved the pies!  Then it was time to make our way home... we stopped at the outlets and had Mexican for lunch and some cherry on top for dessert.  We made the best of a cloudy weekend.  And that is the end of Spring Break... we go back to reality on Monday.
