Today was Dylan's third soccer game. The first two, he wanted nothing to do with it, but today, Steve actually got him to play! He loved giving the boys high fives and the couple of times he actually kicked the ball, he was all into it! For the most part, he was super far away from the action. I think He was just playing his position. Hehe The best part was at the end...when each team got together to give their cheer, Dylan joined the other team's huddle. He had his hand in and everything! I was dying. There's a circle of purple shirts with one red one sticking out! I think he wanted to be on the winning team! It was classic!

Gavin and Hazel

Chuck E Cheeses

We had a combined birthday party for the grandkids while Reagan was in town. It was fun! Good thing it's fun for the kids....for the adults...not so much.


I am playing in a co-ed softball league with Steve! It is so fun, but good thing I got shin splints after one game! Ha, how sad. You'd think I was outta shape or something. Oh wait...

Here is a fun tag. Here are the rules:1. Add a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments. I can't wait to see what people remember. :)

We had such a fun trip to Cali. I am so glad Steve was there. Disneyland was the best. Dylan seriously LOVED it. I am glad that so much of my family was able to go. Too bad Grandma and Grandpa had to work, though!

The Fam! We are waiting to go on Buzz Lightyear.

Johnny and Baby on Space Mountain.

Nana, TLG, and Snake.

So tired! Dylan seriously fell asleep eating the sucker! The funniest part was Dana accidentally woke him up, and I swear he was still asleep with his eyes open, cuz he started making movements with his mouth like the sucker was still in it! Then he started licking his fingers like they were the sucker. HA! He did it for like 2 miutes! I felt bad so I gave him back the sucker.

Me and my honey on Space Mountain. Good thing when we got in line, the line marker said it would only be 20 minutes! Um, it took over an hour! It was well worth it though.

Dana wanted to take a "stroll."

Me and Jaci.

Hehe, I took a picture of the picture from Splash Mountain. Yes, Johnny is as far forward as possible without falling out.

Things got Crazy on Splash Mountain! Some splash wars and what not, which was fabulous cuz it was a very hot day. This was the aftermath.

In line for Thunder Mountain.

Dylan and Lilly in Minnie Mouse's house! I think that ToonTown was a HUGE favorite of Dylan's. He still talks about Mickey's house!

Liz and Rob's Wedding

Auntie Eva is the BEST!

Dylan and Lilly were so cute dancing together! They miss their cousins!

Joey, Donna, and Uncle Ted

Liz and Rob were so perfect on their special day! We were so glad we got to be there. They were sealed in the LA temple. It was fun to have Steve surprise everyone because he wasn't gonna go. It wouldn't have been the same without him!

THis is Hazel and her cousin Ben. It was a nice day, so we went outside to play.

The Aquarium with Grandma & Grandpa

Grandpa is the coolest! Dylan has a special bond with his grandpa! I think they look so alike!
Grandma and her boy. Wow does Dylan love it when Grandma comes to town! I have to spend a whole week unspoiling him after she leaves!
We are having lunch before we went to see the fish. We had so much fun when my parents came to visit!! I wish they lived closer!

Happy Easter

How fun it is to color eggs! Especially when you are 2! Dylan was amazed at the whole thing, but what impressed him the most was the white crayon! He made some great pictures on his eggs!

Eating her basket was much more fun than her presents.

Get the Grass!

Dylan found a sucker in his basket. He loved finding his eggs on the hunt because he realized there were stickers and candy in them!

Hazel had fun with her Easter Basket. So many bright colors. Her basket said princess on it, it was super cute!

Dylan woke up and was so excited when he saw his baskets and the eggs scattered everywhere! The Easter bunny didn't hide the eggs too hard so that he could find them easily.

Dylan absolutely LOVED Finding Nemo on Ice! He had so much fun. He actually would yell out "Nemo" when he would go off stage, scared that he was not coming back! He knew some of the words (scary) and had a blast! It was more fun to watch Dylan rather than the show!
