The Oregon Coast

When we walked outside the Marine Science Center, the weather was sunny and nice, so we went to the beach :) I love living within an hour of the coast!

We thought it would be fun to all wear our boots (this was before we knew we would be going to the beach...oops)
eating sand: a staple activity at the beachOur drive was so beautiful! I took this picture on our way home.

The Hatfield Center

Sarah and I took the boys to the Marine Science Center on the coast and they loved it! There was an octopus in a large tank when you first walk in, and sea anemones and starfish that you could touch!
Brandon and Mom by the sea anemones
Bryce with Sarah....I LOVE Brandon's face in this oneTheir favorite part was just playing in the water...
The boys stood here for quite a while and I thought this picture was funny because they were both doing the same thing...
Bryce loved pushing the buttons and hearing the ocean sounds
and spinning this wheel
The four of us in front of one of the many tanks...
We had a fun time!

Justin and Rachel Visit

Justin and Rachel drove over to Oregon from Rexburg to gather up some of their wedding stuff. Justin is finishing his last semester at BYU-Idaho and will graduate in July! They are enjoying newlywed life :)
Bryce and Brandon had a blast playing with Aunt Rachel and Uncle Justin!

Sarah has been with us for a few weeks now and she is staying with us for the summer!!! We LOVE having her. The other day, we decided to let the boys paint outside...
And Sarah and I had fun painting Brandon's face :)

Happy Easter!

We had a wonderful Easter/Conference Weekend! It was a rare weekend where we got to be home as a family for ALL DAY Saturday and ALL DAY Sunday. We enjoyed our time together and loved listening to Conference.
"Hoppy Easter"We had a very low-key easter egg hunt and the boys LOVED it! Skye hid the eggs all throughout the house (since it was rainy outside) and he told Bryce he had to leave the "easy" ones for Brandon. We filled the eggs with fruit loops and M&M' easy to please.

Mom's Birthday!

March 28th
This is what happens when your birthday happens to be the day after your son gets married...
Good 'ol wedding cake. It was just as delicious the second time around. Happy Birthday MOM/NONA! We love you and were glad we got to celebrate your special day with you.
