This is at a place called "Old Man's Cave" the most beautiful area in Ohio. And a fun place to hike/walk around!
They were able to go to Emily's dance recital and see one of her Lyrical routines.
I just had to add this cute picture in. That day we had not only been to Emily's dance recital, but then we went to see some ancient earth mounds and then went to a place called Dawes Arboretum. Inside there, there is an old pioneer cemetery which is wehere this picture was taken. By then Hailey was just a little tired and ornery. Can you tell?
Columbus Zoo. The petting zoo was Hailey's favorite part. She loved brushing the animals! I thought this also was a fun picture. Grandpa "rode" the warthog with Hailey.
Thanks Leonard and Myrna for coming and spending a week with us. I hope we didn't wear you out too much. We, on the other hand had a lot of fun! Come again soon!
Michael also celebrated with his friends by giong out to a movie and pizza and all night party. I didn't get any pictures because we were to make ourselves scarce for the festivities.
Here is Michaels "Top 10" for 2009- in no particular order....
1. Xbox 360 (he is actually saving up for this, almost there!)
3. Nintendo DS
4. Computer games (are you seeing a pattern here?)
5. Playing the piano
6. Drawing and sketching
7. Sword fighting (he calls it exercise)
8. Visiting family in Utah
9. Travelling- he's been to 39 of the 50 states
Happy birthday Michael! We love you and hope you had a great day!

So, if you get tired of checking my blog and there (once again) is nothing new to see, just know I am running around serving my own family and my ward family. I will post things when I can get to it..... or I actually think about it! Love to you all, and bear with me. :-D

Happy Easter to you all! I know this is a little late, but at least I've got it up now, OK? Easter was great, and as you can see, we had a couple visitors with us to help celebrate. My mom and my sister, Rachael came here a week before to play with the kids while Todd and I spent 6 days in Las Vegas for a much needed (on my part) break. Todd had a conference there, and I went along for the ride. The kids were on spring break so mom and Rachael spoiled them plenty by taking them somewhere different every day and playing from dawn til dusk. Our kids didn't miss us a bit, which is how I had hoped it would be. If you want to see all that they did, just go to Rachaels blog on my list called "Thd Space Of Rach". She's done a whole slide show of their week here in Ohio. Thanks, mom and Rach for coming out and letting us (Todd and I) leave you with a house full of kids! You guys are the best!
Made cool crafts (that's a dream catcher)......
Touched icky animals.......
And had lots of fun! And no it wasn't just because I was there too! Next time you see Tyler, make sure and ask him about his mighty adventures at 5th grade camp!

Ok, I got these pictures in one morning, in about 2 minutes. This is what she does, she "moves the cat". Luckily we have 2 of them so they share "moving" responsibilities and they have also learned to just go limp when they see her coming because they know it's not worth the fight and it will be over soon.
