Moab~ Our new toy!

Last weekend we took our new toy down to Moab. We went with a whole group of people. All together we had 7 UTV's and over 20 people! We went on so many fun trails. We went through rivers and dust, Up and down the red rock, and some of us (my Dad) even tried to roll our machines. Thank goodness for the cooler racks on the back of his or he would have flipped right over. I love this top picture, because whenever we went up or down a steep hill, the girls would grab hands and hold on to each other. They never acted scared, in fact most of the time they would put both hands in the air like they were on a roller coaster. We had so much fun. We can't wait to make the trip back down in a couple of weeks. It is such a fun way to have family time. These machines are incredible, the rocks they can climb, and the terrain they can handle is amazing. Thank goodness we are not having any "Buyers Remorse!"

I love this sweet pic of my girls taking care of each other!

Our new toy!

My crazy Dad trying to flip over, My mom was not saying nice words to him from the back seat!

The lizard we caught, Kenz was not sure about it!


We had a great Easter this year we went to the Bountiful city Easter celebration, that was...well pretty dumb. The Easter egg hunt had like 10 eggs out for 300 kids. Kenzie didn't find any and got trampled, not sure if it was by a older kid, or a parent trying to get there kid an egg so they didn't have to deal with a tantrum like I dealt with. Luckily I found some candy and threw it in her bag and she was happy. Someone give the kid some candy!
She found an egg!

On Easter we went up to Logan to Kasey's parents house for the traditional Easter egg hunt. My girls liked this one much better because they are guaranteed ten eggs all with candy and money inside. It was so fun to get to go to church with his parents and all of the cousins. We don't get to spend as much time with them as we would like. Also this year they added the confetti eggs. That was a blast for them and I am sure my mother-in-law had just as much fun cleaning it all up!

My sister in law is from Mexico and found the confetti eggs they make there Kenzie wasn't quite sure what was going on!

But Lexie sure liked it!

Terrible Two's here we come!

Marshmellows were her favorite present!
My second attempt at a home made cake

Enjoying her cake

Still tryin to get the whole "blow" concept!

she obviously likes this present!


Kenzie turned two! On March 30th (I know I have been slacking in the blogging department!) She had such a fun birthday. She is the funniest, goofiest kid ever. I asked her to pick out which kind of cake she would like me to make, Since I handmade one for Lexie I felt like I should do the same for Kenzie. Although, this time I got a little smarter and went to Robert where they sell cake molds and limited her choices to the ones they had available. Cinderella, butterfly's, strawberry shortcake...Nope, she wanted the Easter bunny. I told you she was a funny kid. We all went out to Jungle Jims, which I must say is a pretty white trash joint. However, the kids have an absolute blast. It was perfect for a two years olds party. After way way to many presents we went to Olive Garden her favorite restaurant and she ate all the bread sticks she wanted! Kenzie has been the nicest baby, and has been the funnest toddler, she has more personality than she knows what to do with. She has now started the temper tantrums and folding her arms when she doesn't get her way, but she makes the funniest faces while doing those naughty things I find myself laughing more than being angry. Happy Birthday sweet Kenzie!
