Ahhh! Beautiful spring weather,
no humidity, warm sun, light breeze…
perfect day for the zoo!
This thought also occurred to several schools as well! Thankfully, there weren’t too many groups there today (I hear Friday is horrible!) and we were able to enjoy ourselves without being run over!
We visited the elephants, giraffes, and lorikeets.
And, of course, we played at the playground!
Aren’t they just so cute together?!
I can’t believe Natalie is getting so big!
when you have WAY too much fun, don’t take naps, and stay up late ALL weekend…
you crash. hard core!
He took a 3 hour nap today and we couldn’t wake him even by shaking him! Natalie napped for 2, while Darin and I enjoyed an hour and half of snoozing as well! aaahhhhhhhh…. 🙂
What a weekend!
The weather was great,
the food was eaten,
…and the fun was had!
Here’s a smidgen of the festivities from this weekend!
(Obviously I didn’t take enough pictures myself, so I will put up a few more once I steal them from everyone else)
Darin did ski and went down the waterslide,
I enjoyed the tube and snuck into the hot tub w/Dawn & Marissa,
Luke rode the tube and played pool and in the pool,
Natalie was held by everyone, even Alex!
We all rode paddleboats, played games, ate and ate and ate, teased each other too much and soaked up some sun!
She only wore it for a few hours the whole trip…
…but I think she is just so cute in it!
…Easter weekend was a fun-filled family weekend. We enjoyed Saturday morning together, Daddy went for a boat ride while Luke and Natalie played with Mom at Grandpa and Grandma’s house, we planted a raspberry twig (hope it grows), ate delicious Indonesian with the Whitaker clan, enjoyed general conference, watched Luke find all the eggs in his personal hunt, took in some sun…
(bedheads discovering our Easter basket surprises)
p.s. Thanks Grandpa & Grandma Payne for the Kindereggs—they were devoured in less than a minute—and for the children’s songbook, already used in FHE last night!
(Luke’s no competition egg hunt was a success, next year he’ll have to race Aliali!)
We love this spring weather!
thanks to all for making Darin feel special on his birthday!
