A break from the COLD!

So it seems we are getting a bit tired of all the cold weather! We are freezing up here while we impatiently await the beautiful summer days ahead!
So in an attempt to chase the winter blues away...we headed to this fun little indoor water park with some of our friends Colby, Mandy and their kids Tate and Seth. The girlies and Seth had a blast as well as their parents. It was a much needed break! We enjoyed the 85 deg weather (inside) some great water slides, fun in the wave pool, and just watching the girls faces as they played. It makes me excited for summer days at Grannie Greats pool:)

Energy Solution

So lately the girls have had way too much energy. I seems like I have run out of ideas or just gotten lazy when it comes to entertaining them in our little house. So some friends of ours found this fun gymnastic gym that has open play everyday for an hour. We decided to get out of the house and give it a try. The girls had a ball! I think we could have stayed there all day and they wouldn't have gotten bored! Here are some cute pics from the adventure.

Audrey is such a dare devil! She would slide down and take a 3 foot drop into the foam cubes!
She couldn't get enough.

Abby, Tatum and Clara

Abby jumping in the pit!

Abby's favorite thing was the rope swing.


Ice Skating

We headed out on the town the other night to take the girls Ice Skating. We went with our Friends Mandy and Colby. Abby and Tatum are the same age and love playing together. Sorry the pic are a little blurry...it was a phone camera.

I had no idea they would have skates that would fit her.
She loved every minute and kept saying more more!


Thank You Santa!!

Dinosaur Museum

We went to the Dinosaur Museum with my mom, sister and her 4 cute boys. It was our first time and it is so fun! We will defiantly need to get a pass when we move back to Utah:)
Thanks for the fun day!

Build a Bear

Grannie and Pa at Build a Bear with the girls. They got each of the girls a bear to take back to Spokane with them. The girls give there bears big hugs and kisses every time they are missing Grannie and Pa! Thanks mom and dad! We miss you:)

The Cabin

Just after New Years we headed up to a Cabin with the Marchbanks family.
We had a blast sledding, snowmobiling, eating, playing games and watching the UofU play football!! Go Utes!!
We got about a foot of snow while we were there. When we were getting ready to leave we got stuck in the drive way. We were lucky Levi had bought chains when he drove down from Spokane. We threw those on and got out slick as a whistle!
As we were heading down the canyon we got a call from mom and dad, they said that Jen and Nate need some help. Well come to find out Nate was trying to turn a light on in the car and hit the sun roof button instead. Remember I told you we got a foot of snow. Well the whole foot of snow fell into the car with 4 sleeping boys, Nate and Jen. Needless to say they were all freezing! So we spent about 45mins in 9degrees trying to fix it. We finally got it to close(when the snow fell it it melted in the tracks and then froze instantly, which caused it not to close)and then the battery died. So we jumped the car and made it home safe and sound! It was quite and adventure and some great memories!

This year for NYE we went to the Gonzaga vs Utah game with some of our friends from GU. We ate at Buca Di Beppo which was so yummy! Then headed to the game, which didn't turn out in our favor:(, but it was still fun! Then before heading back to get the kiddos we stopped by to see some of our friends in SLC. It was a great night with great company!
