A snake, a hike, and a sandbox

Last week was beautiful, full of sun and warmth. The beginning of the week was hard but got better as it went along. It seems like so much happened this week that I am getting confused--wasn't I supposed to take Isaac to his appointment? No, that was last Monday and I don't have to make the trip again until next Monday. Could that really have been just a week ago?

The second part of the week was better partly because I kept the boys out of the house and busy. On Thursday we went to some falls close to our house. I took a picnic and we met up with some friends and spent a few hours hiking and enjoying nature. On Friday we went to play in our favorite sandboxes at the gardens. While there, the boys were excited to find a snake. It took me forever to get them away and back home for lunch and nap time. They had a great time and I'm grateful for the sun and the chance to get out of the house because the boys really need that. We had a great Easter--pictures to come.

First of all, I wanted to let you know that I really loved your last post. You are so amazing. I am always learning from you, and strengthened by you. I'm glad that you share your experiences, especially your faith promoting ones. You open my eyes up to the many ways that we can teach our children the gospel and help them to feel of our Father's and our Savior's love for them and us. Thank you, thank you.

I'm so glad that you had some sunny weather and that you were able to get out! I love the picture of them holding hands...such sweet boys.

Like the pics of the boys, especially the one you rounded the edges where the boys are holding hands. Wish we could see you boys more often. -Jester

Oh my goodness, cute pictures!! And can I just say how jealous I am of your sunshine? We're buried under snow here!

P.S. Thanks for visiting my blog! Can I just say, I heart your comment!

Apparently I haven't ever looked very closely at your blog header because I hadn't noticed the picture of Isaac before! I LOVE it! What a cute kid! -Jen

Gillian, if you have boys you will have to deal with lots of yucky things!

Cali, thank you. I think the same thing about you every time I read your blog.

Jess, we wish we could see you guys more often too. I think the boys would love playing with your girls.

Jen, I wish you had good weather too and that it passes quickly! What a bummer.

Serene, are you in Utah? My entire family is burried under snow right now in the West. I hope it doesn't come our way!

Jen, I cannot get a good picture of Isaac. I keep trying but it's about impossible.
