I cannnot keep clothes on the kids even now that it is winter. Jude doesn't want to wear any and Lily just wants to have a shirt on inside out and backwards with mismatched socks and pants on backwards. This is pretty much their uniform everyday. Like I said before, I like to take pictures of them on Sunday because they are definitely dressed and they actually match and look mostly presentable. Lily had to make a quick call before heading out to the car.

A friend of mine whose anniversary is a couple of weeks before mine reminded me that ours was coming up. It took me by surprise and when she asked how many years it had been I said,"Oh like 11 or so." Then I actually counted and realized it had been 14. Time flies when you are having fun they say. This was just a shot taken by our waitress. Daren surprised me with reservations to a nice new restaurant and tickets to a play. I told Daren that was the present I had been waiting for for 14 years. For him to plan something as a surprise ahead of time. Well worth the wait. It was the best present.

We went to a place called Garden Valley to see the fireworks. It was in a very beautiful valley and we had front row seats which in retrospect was probably too close. The kids had fun beforehand but the fireworks were too much for all of them. We had a nice picnic lunch when we weren't trying to keep the twins out of the porta potties or other people's fireworks. The little animals on their backs are leashes we have started using but we had taken the strap off for good behavior. It is hard to keep an eye on those two at the same time.

We took the kids to Red Robin for their bday and they wouldn't eat anything but the chips I brought from home. We went to the pool and then naps, presents and cake. They didn't really get into the cake thing til I gave them forks. How polite they are. It was fun and we are so glad to have made it to two. Now if we can only make it to three.

Well we went to the Cherry Festival in Emmett and because of the weather there weren't really any cherries yet but we had fun anyway. We had fry bread for the first time since living in AZ over 6 years ago and the kids enjoyed the petting zoo. I also got a henna tattoo which I have wanted for years. Fun Fun Fun!

I didn't even know what a Peony looked like really and then when we moved here there was one plant in front that got one flower and I thought it was so pretty. Daren ended up buying 3 more and this year we had 10-15 flowers. I just love them and I love spring. This post is was late but better than never. I had cut some and brought them in and put them next to the most recent picture of Jude and Lily.
