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.

Here is Jude on the swing at our Uncle Lloyd's house. He had a great playground for the kids in his backyard but unfortunately the kids weren't really feeling up to it. Jude threw up the whole day before we left and then Lily threw up the whole car ride there and then Aspen threw up the whole second night we were there. I got sick the last day and was sick for the week after we got home. It was fun to see family and we were sorry we could not go to the farewell we came for. A special thanks to Uncle Lloyd for letting us stay with him. Thanks to Mom and Dad for helping with the kids. Unfortunately under the circumstances this is the only good picture I got for the whole weekend. What a missed opportunity to get picutes with family. Next time I guess.
