Spring Break 2009

This year we thought it would be fun to do something different this Spring break. So we decided to take a family trip to Arizona to see Grandpa and Grandma Edgar. This would be the first time that they would meet Wyatt and Morgan. We also made time to see Chris and Erin and cousins and also a Dinosaur museum in Utah at Thanksgiving point. Here are some highlights...

On our 1st travel day, we stopped at Scipio, UT. This the childhood town of Shawn's mom. In the background is building with a green roof. It was the store owned by Shawn's mom's dad.

Kevan is sitting on a rock with a bunch of dinosaur footprints. We are at Moqui Cave just outside of Kanab, UT.

We visited the Bass Pro Shop in Las Vegas. They had a real stuffed giraffe. This place was really fun to see.

We had a great time, but now it is time to get back to life and our daily routine.

Belated Pictures of Kevan's Birthday

Back in March, Kevan turned 7 years old and had a fun party to celabrate the big day.
While we waited for all the guests to arrive, we made paper airplanes. These are their creations.

Then we played the classic game of trying to pop the balloon that is attached to someone's ankle, while protecting your own. These boys are pretty competive, so it was kind of a long game.

Next we played the mummy game with toilet paper. They had to start all over if the toilet paper broke. They did pretty good!

Next was pinata time.

Kevan asked for a Scooby Doo Mystery Machine Cake for his birthday. He insisted that the cake be chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. So this is my attempt.

I'm glad he liked it.
