Catch Up Blog Post.

As hard as I try to keep the blog up to date, I seem to not to so well at it. So here is another catch-up post!

The kids and I went to the zoo with Grandma, Aunt Whitni & Cousins!

Laikynn is still in Tumbling and Dance! She loves both but prefers tumbling, mainly because she hates practicing her splits (HA)!

Titan just finished up Soccer! He is becoming such a good player and is really good at defense! He is also in Hip-Hop Dancing and Break Dancing! & we just signed him up for Football this Fall!

Every soccer game this season was cold and raining! Luckily Titan has some good supporters who came rain or shine!

Devan and I celebrated Valentine's Day in California at the Dunes!

We were able to make it to a few Jazz Games this Season too! The kids loved it for about the first half then they got a little bored with it.

Devan and I at a Masquerade Party for one of my friends birthdays!

Titan and Laikynn are doing so well in school. Laikynn is writing her name & she knows her letters with their sounds. She has a love for learning! Titan is finally picking up on reading better and has made such good progress this school year! He is growing up SO quick!! Every day I see him run off to school I just can't believe how old he looks! He loves to take his football to school everyday to play at recess with his friends.

 Both kids are doing great in swimming! We were having the kids go 3 times week to get them all ready to go to Turks and Caicos but sadly we were unable to go! We were planning on going out there for a friends wedding and had everything booked since December! I went into my doctor about a month before the trip and asked him if he thought it was a good idea or not because of the Zika Virus. The Zika Virus wasn't actaully in Turks and Caicos when we were planning on going, but it was all over the Caribbean. He told me ABSOLUTELY NO and we knew it wasn't worth the risk. Luckily with a doctors note confirming I was pregnant we were able to get our money back from the resort and the airlines!

We said good-bye to this cute little pup back in February! This was the first puppy our dogs had had so it was hard to let him go!

Curiosity Museum with the kids... they couldn't hold still long enough for a photo. 

Movie Night!

Dinosaur Museum!

St Patrick's Day!

I got a new phone lately and although I backed everything up to my computer and the cloud before the switch somehow my recent photos didn't transfer over and I lost all the photos from the past month which included Titan's Birthday Party! Titan wanted to go to his favorite place, Hang Time, for his party. It is pretty much a giant warehouse full of trampolines and foam pits. He had an absolute BLAST!!

It's kind of cool seeing my photos pop up lately! This photo is in the Utah Vasa Gyms & on a billboard on the Freeway! I remember going to this shoot and being super sick, not knowing I was pregnant yet!

And I am now on a book cover which is super exciting!!

Those are our updates as of lately!

Easter Weekend at the Sand Dunes

Easter Weekend is one of the biggest weekends at the Sand Dunes here in Utah. Devan loves any chance he can get to ride his Razor so we decided to pack up the kids and go to the Dunes for the weekend. The Sand Dunes are only like an hour and a half away from us so it's a good 'mini vacation' for us!

I was a little nervous about the kids because I didn't know if they would like it or not. The last time we took them, Laikynn was scared to death of the Razor and Titan would just fall asleep every time he rode in it (how is that even possible, right??)

To my surprise they both LOVED it this time! They would take turns going on the the big rides with dad and I would hang out in the camper with the other one. Since I am pregnant I would get a little nauseous in it so I just sat out this weekend. We did trade Razors with Devan's brother for one ride so I could get out of the camper for a bit. He had a 4 seater so we were all able to ride. I smiled the entire time as the kids just laughed and laughed the whole ride because it was tickling their bellies!!

We also decided to get Titan a little Razor of his own! He never wanted to get out of this thing! He just rode around in circles in the camp the entire weekend!

We also have a little 4-wheeler and motorcycle that we took down with us and they had a blast riding them all day!

Since it was Easter we had the kids decorate Easter Eggs on Saturday night. Then Sunday morning they got to find their eggs and baskets in the camper! It was a fun way to do Easter!

Mermaid Birthday

Laikyn turned 4 (back in March)! She decided that she wanted a Mermaid Party and that she wanted Princess Ariel to come! (Similar to her party last year with Rapunzel.)

She had so much fun with Ariel and all her friends! <3 br="">

We also did a family party with cake and ice cream so that everyone could celebrate her special day!
