Stairway to...

Lots of fun
Grandma and Grandpa's room

Whatever you want to call these stairs, the boys call them entertainment for a whole week of visiting! Observe:

What a busy last couple of weeks we've had! Ryan and I made lots of preparations for holy week for the boys that included an Easter play dough mountain, lots of pipe cleaner people, a temple, and a cross. We spent time each day, beginning with Palm Sunday, explaining and acting out a portion of the story leading up to the cross and ended Easter Sunday with Jesus alive outside of the tomb. Jake paid pretty good attention and remembered much of what we told him. It was pretty exciting for us to watch him absorb everything.

We left Friday for the trip to my parent's house and had a great time up there. The boys got to do all kinds of fun stuff, like ride the motorcycle, play in the 5th wheel trailer out back, and follow their grandma around like puppies. I've got lots of pictures, so I'll try to pare it down, but this will probably be a long post! Enjoy.

Goofy cousins

Jake came out on Easter morning to see Christ outside the tomb alive!

Perhaps the cutest picture of him. Ever. It actually took quite a lot of coaxing to get him to wear this tie just for pictures before church! He promptly took it off after I put my camera away. I stowed it in my purse and when Jake saw all the little boys in the children's choir wearing ties, he decided it was high time he wear one too.

Boys in ties

We went to my aunt & uncle's home on Easter and the boys thought the cat door was pretty fun.

Warren loved the Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots.

My dad's friend, Jason, came by in his shifter cart. The boys were hooked.

Catch Up Pictures

A couple of weeks ago the boys and I trekked up to my mom's because my dad and Ryan were at a pastor's conference all week down here at our church. Here are some pictures from the week before my dad left.

My dad bought a new dirt bike. You can see how little it is with him on it. Can you guess who he hopes may ride it in a couple of years?

My mom bought Jake and Warren some new light-up Lightning McQueen shoes and one morning Warren wanted them on from the time he woke up until he went to bed. This is him eating breakfast complete with baseball hat, footie jammies and sandals. Cool guy.

Can you tell it was spaghetti night?

For the Shepherd's Conference, the seminary guys open up the first session singing a couple of hymns and this year the conference was live streamed so we were able to watch it on the computer! When they zoomed in a little bit we could see Ryan standing up there in the choir loft singing! The boys got quite a kick out of that.

More to come later!

Hey Hey

Hello everyone. I have some moments to myself for a little while before I need to start dinner because Ryan has the boys outside, so I thought I would post some pictures. We're all doing well...the boys are growing, as am I, and Ryan is slimming down because he's been running! Other than that, there is nothing new to report. So I'll dive in with some pics.

What else is there to do on a rainy day except pull out a shelf from the bookshelf and make a slide?

Warren has learned the fine art of climbing out of his crib. Thankfully, he doesn't do it when he's supposed to be sleeping. He only does this when he's feeling goofy right before bed waiting for his goodnight kisses and water.

Ok, I'm out of time, I have many more pictures, but I'll save them for later!
