This piece of old tree looked like an elephant head I though it was cool.
My cute kiddos Presley loved the water, and Ridge loved the mud.
Making a home for the poor frogs.
For Memorial day we went to the Red Cliffs Area, we had heard it was fun and decided to check it out. We went with our friends the Funk's. We took a picnic and then went on a little hike which leads you to a pond of water. I guess when it's really full you can actually slide down the rocks like a water slide. There wasn't a lot of water left when we went. All the kids had a ball swimming and playing in the sand. They found a few frogs and tried to build home for them so they couldn't get away. I'm sure those poor little frogs were glad when we left. It was a fun day and we want to go again when there's a little more water.
Prelsey graduated from Miss Mary's Little Lambs Preschool. They had a little program sang us a song and we were able to watch a DVD of all the fun things they got to do through out the year. Kindergarten here we come.
We went to our usual spot at the Coral Pink Sand Dunes. This year Ridge was old enough to go for rides and boy did he love it. We went on a hike to the Indian cave and there paintings. Presley thought it was neat that they painted on the walls. Every little kids dream, it amazes me that they lived there it is a giant cave and the edge is probably a 100 foot drop straight down. I wondered how they kept there kids safe. We all had a great time with great food and family. We got a little bonus news, my brother and his wife are pregnant with their first baby. We all couldn't be more excited I'm going to be an aunt and my kids get a cousin Yay!
My sweet girl turned 5 in May she got to celebrate 3 weekends in a row one with Grandma and Grandpa Wilson she got a new fishing pole all her own. She has been dying for someone to take her fishing since last summer. The next weekend we went camping and celebrated with my family, where her cake exploded! I took it out of the oven in the trailer set it down and a sound went off like a gunshot and glass exploded every where. It was crazy, after a few tears about no cake we went in to Kanab that night for Ice cream instead. On the actual day of her birthday we took her out to dinner of her choice, Pizza Factory, and she got a new bike. Five is kind of a big one she starts kindergarten and just seems so big, and she couldn't be more excited for it all!
Presley has started early loosing teeth normally this would happen around 5 1/2 6ish, but oh no were starting at 4! I'm not loving this but it's out of my control. She was super excited this is #2 and she loves that the Tooth Fairy gets to come visit her and leave some money. My girl is growing up too fast, I tell her to stop and she tells me that she can't help it she grows a little bit every night in her sleep so she can't stop. Love my sweet girl and all the fun ideas she comes up with.
Presley learned how to ride without training wheels it took all of maybe 30 min. and the bribe of a new stuffed animal. Good job Presley we knew you could do it. That's all she wants to do is ride her bike, as soon as she gets up in the morning. This is one of those proud mommy moments for me, passing on my knowledge and watching her become a big girl. I am so proud.
We decided to check out the Wildlife Museum, it's been here longer than we have but have never been to it. We weren't sure what to expect but it was pretty amazing. They have animals from all over the world some that are extinct and they are stuffed and in there natural habitat. Presley and Ridge both loved it. They love going to sportsman's to see all of the animals so if you can imagine this was ten times as cool. They give you these walkie-talkies and when you go by the different areas you punch in a number and it tells you all about the animals and there habitat.
The lights go on and off and it makes lightening and thunder sounds.
He was so excited, and I was so I excited I caught his face!
We had a great Easter my parents came to spend it with us. We colored our eggs, I love the pictures pres was jumping on the tramp with the sprinklers while the eggs cooled. The couch is in the kitchen because we had the carpets cleaned pics to remember. She really got into coloring them, and I am still a kid at heart when it comes to decorating Easter Eggs. The Easter bunny found us and brought the kids some fun things and some good treats. It was so funny when Ridge discovered there were jelly beans in some of the eggs. He was all over that idea and didn't care about anything else. We went to church and had a good lunch after wards with Grandma and Grandpa S. as well. After that we went out to the back side of Sand Hollow sand dunes and rolled our Easter Eggs. Presley wanted to keep them all, because they were so pretty, she didn't want to ruin them. Ridge just wanted to throw at the ground and smash them. I definitely have a girly girl and Ridge is all BOY! Happy Easter!
