Spring Break Week

This last week has been a whole lot of fun!  Todd and Nate both had spring break, so Nate decided to head down here to visit us!  I especially appreciate this since this summer he'll be headed off on an LDS mission and that'll last a couple years... so I enjoy all the time we get to spend together!  We had a lot of fun playing board and video games and even putting together a puzzle, but my favorite part was hiking Angel's Landing.  I hadn't gone on this hike since a few years ago and I had forgotten how hard it was... but it was incredibly enjoyable too!  We had such a great time laughing and teasing, especially when the cliff edge was near... but don't worry we were safe too.  I have to tell you, I was most excited about getting the picture of Todd and I in the hole in the rock, though, because my mom and dad have a picture just like it at about the same age!!  I'm very sentimental!










St. Patrick's Day was a blast as well!  I love every holiday that can be celebrated, because I love reliving and creating new traditions!  This year for St. Patty's we woke up and had green pancakes and scrambled eggs.  Nate and Todd tore
 off my green and pinched me over and over again... I don't think that was fair at all!  Then we made and decorated sugar cookies, as well as make shamrock necklaces.  And for the finale the kids were lead by clues throughout the house until
 they found the "Leprechaun's Golden Treats" (butterscotch candies and such)... I think they were actually disappointed when they found the treasure cause that meant the hunt was over, how interesting!  I hope you all had a great week and holiday!

Love the pictures - and the one of you and Todd in the hole is great! It would be perfect to have the two pictures side-by-side!

That's EXACTLY what I'm going to do... I just need to steal away the one of my parents to make a copy since it's currently in my grandmother's possession!

Tammy.. did you know that you have the same anniversary as David and I! Funny!

You really do have an awesome family. I enjoyed Todd's testimony on Sunday... I bet that just warmed your heart.

Great pictures! I love the feeling of making to the end of the hike when it's been hard and you have that accomplishment. It looks like you had a great Spring Break & St. Patrick's Day! :)
