FHE at the Temple

During the summer, it was a regular family home evening for us to go to the St. George temple to "listen to Jesus" as Kennedie says. We love to visit the temple and the kids enjoy climbing the stairs and going to the fountain. Kennedie reminds us often that she wants to get married in the temple and dance there when she is married. And as most little girls, she says she will be marrying her dad.

Fun at the Zoo!

It was a great time at the zoo! We had so much fun with our cousins--Adelyn, Hadley, and Davis. Mikah loved the alligators. We almost couldn't get him to leave those to go see the other animals. Then when we came to the playground, Jer decided to get eaten by an alligator while Mikah watched. The carousel was a big hit...as always. We missed the polar bears by a week. BUMMER!
We can't wait to go again next year.

Spring Dancital!

What a great dancer Kennedie is! Grandma Suzie came down to watch Kennedie and her friends dance. Grandma Bonnie and Papa Thompson came too. Kennedie was so excited to get some flowers and was sad when they had to be thrown away. Next time we will get silk flowers that will last forever. And yes, dancital is one word (according to Kennedie)!

Spring Break at Disneyland!

We had so much fun during Spring Break! We went to Disneyland with Grandma Suzie, Grandpa Tubby, Blake, and Joni. We had a blast and can't wait to go again.

Kennedie's favorite ride was the Dumbo ride. She loved being with Joni on EVERYTHING!
Mikah loved the fireworks! He was in awe of them as he watched. Kennedie, on the other hand, covered her ears the entire time and couldn't wait to go back to the hotel.

The beach was great! We got to experience the public trasportation system. We rode the bus to the beach, but we didn't get off on the right stop on the way there, so we had to wait quite a while for the next one to come. We did eventually make it there and enjoyed our time. Kennedie wouldn't touch the water, and neither would Mikah. They both didn't like the sand either. We finally got Mikah to play in the sand when Jer started digging. Mikah was fine getting dirty, but wouldn't have anything to do with the water. He is a definite boy!
We did make it back to the hotel, and the ride back was a bit better since we didn't have to wait for the bus. Next time, we will drive ourselves.

We watched the Disney Junior show, which the kids LOVED! They both sat through the entire thing. That is a first. We spent a few days in Disneyland and can't wait to go back. Kennedie talks about it all the time. We are saving our pennies and are planning our next trip.
