Brinley's Dance pictures

Brinley was so excited to put her dance recital clothes on for her dance pictures. We curled her hair and put on a little makeup and out she was for some pictures. She later went to her dance studio to get pictures with her class. She had it set in her mind that her dad was going to take her. I told her he would be the only dad there! She didn't care and when they got their he was the only one. He even had to put her bows in her hair!! Oh well it was a fun daddy daughter day. Next week is her dance recital and she is very excited!

Memory Quilt

I was so excited to get this quilt my mom has been working on for the past year and a half. She made six quilts. She kept one and gave each of the kids one. She went through all of my dad's shirts that he wore and cut them into squares for the quilts. It is amazing the memories that come to me when I see this quilt. My dad did so many things for us, this is a fun reminder of him. Brinley even remembers him wearing the burgundy plaid shirt when he sat on Santa's lap for her! I am thankful that my mom did this for us. It was a special gift that we will treasure.

Spring Break

We started spring break up at my sisters cabin in BearLake. We went up for conference weekend with Eric's sisters and their families. We had such a great time with everyone. Eric and the guys went to the Paris Tabernacle in Paris Idaho for the priesthood session. It is a historic building that my ancestors help build. They took a little tour after the priesthood session was over to check it all out. While they were at conference the girls had fun making crafts and playing games. Even though it was a little cold we still were able to go on a four wheeler ride. Easter is always eventful and the kids were excited for the easter bunny to come. It was great to spend easter with cousins and family.
The rest of the week we had fun at Boondocks, The Childrens museum, and dog sitting Izzy.
We are not much of a dog family but we make an exception with Izzy. We just love this dog. The girls had so much fun taking care of her. I really didn't do much! She is such a loveable dog and loves to curl up by you! At the end of the week another cousin wanted to take care of her and my girls had a hard time letting her go! It's a good thing we can go visit her anytime!
Well thats about it for our spring break. I hope we can make it through the next couple of months of school. I think the kids are definitely ready for summer!!
