April: Adventures and Easter

At the beginning of April Joyce came down to visit during conference weekend. I am so grateful for the chance we have to listen to the apostles and our prophet every six months!

The boys enjoyed lots of extra snuggles while we watched conference at home. 

I even got fancy and made Justin pizza for lunch! homemade pizza is the best!

As an early birthday present Justin got a Frisbee golf cage from my parents and quickly got the neighborhood boys hooked too.

It is awesome to have great neighbors, and that those awesome neighbors have a swing set in their backyard. 

We've also been to the park a few times, although now JJ gets to the top of the slide and says that it's too hard... 

Some days this little whirlwind surprises me and sits still for a little while, watching him color is one of my favorite things.

Finally in April we finished JJ's playhouse, it was so exciting to finally see it put together and see JJ playing in it!

After all the walls were freshly painted I decided that the banister needed a little love too. Now if painting wood makes you cringe, tough luck. This is not an heirloom house and the wood isn't anything special. 

See! look at what a wonderful difference that made! 

we also discovered some lovely vintage linoleum underneath the carpet in our living room, I love uncovering things like this.

These two are two peas in a pod, and we always enjoy when we can visit daddy for lunch. 

In April we went in for a 20 week ultrasound, and found out we are having.....


For Easter my Grandma, Grandpa, and the Irvings came up to have some fun and enjoy Easter with us. 

We were able to host the Looney family Easter party this year!

it was such a beautiful day outside.

Every year they make an egg pinata for the kids, and since JJ is the smallest he got the first whack.

JJ really got into egg hunting this year especially after he figured out there was candy inside the eggs!

We also dyed Easter eggs, always a fun and messy experience.

We also went to a bees game with Jill and the kids! Wil even got a ball signed my CJ Cron and Luiz Jimenez! how awesome!

We originally wanted to go to the aquarium but since it had just opened they didn't have all of the animals moved over to the new place quite yet and was quite expensive. Our next thought was to go to the tulip festival at Thanksgiving Point and that is WAY expensive! We opted for going to temple square and seeing the beautiful flowers there for free, and to go to the ZOO.

I didn't get very many pictures that day but JJ loved seeing all the animals again!

What a stud in his bow tie for Easter!!!

We even had our first crop of asparagus, the plants were already there when we bought the house and couldn't wait to see what popped up.

This year we hid JJ's Easter basket in his play house and he was so excited to find it and all of the goodies inside!

He was totally eyeing that mini chocolate bunny.

We topped off Easter by having a wonderful dinner outside with everyone. I am so grateful for this awesome house we have to live in and that we have been able to Have so many people come to visit and celebrate here with us!
