Smith Center

I've been wanting to take the kids to the Smith Center for a little photo shoot for a while. Valentines Day was the perfect was nice outside and the kids didn't have school. They complained a little bit, but I promised them if they were good, I would take them to the park after. That worked with Addie and Devin, but not with Lyla. There really is no bribing a two year old.

While the kids are at piano, Lyla and I go to the park to hang out.

Calico Basin

Like I mentioned in the last post, James and Karrah came down for the weekend. We all just love Karrah so much and are so glad James married her! (we love James too, or course)! They got here Friday night. Saturday we went out to lunch, then went to Calico Basin. It was overcast but such a nice day. 

 They stayed until Monday. We went to the park, played games, and just had a really good time.

Valentines Day

Valentines Day this year..
I did my usual daily treat in the kids mailboxes. I started February 1st.
My mom always sends a package. They loved it mom!
The kids are obsessed with Minecraft so we made a creeper box for Devin. Addie made hers at school.

The kids actually had Valentines day off. So they had their class parties Thursday.  
Friday morning we woke up and made a Valentines breakfast.
Then I made cupcakes. I have been in such a baking mood lately.

Later that day, I took the kids downtown to take a few pictures of them, then we went to the container park. It is basically a shopping center where all the shops are in shipping containers. There is a park for the kids. And at the entrance there is a huge praying mantis with fire coming out of his antennas.

After the park we went home and made heart shaped pizzas. It was a great day.
James and Karrah made it even better and showed up to visit for the weekend. They brought us a valentines day present...candy in cans they had sealed on campus. Cute idea.
