Photo Shoot with My Boys

I rarely get a true "photo shoot" with my boys. Yesterday they got their hair cut, so I thought it would be a great time to take some pictures.
These are taken in our front yard in the trees during the "golden hour" of photography-
the hour before sunset. 
I am so excited how these came out.  Kaleb and Cole were wonderful subjects.

Here are the pictures of Cole:

Here are the pictures of Kaleb:

Landon was having a bad day, so he would only let me take these three pictures
before he was done. Luckily these 3 came out pretty good.

Thanks for looking!

Playing Games

The boys have recently learned how to play Settlers of Catan.
It is a complicated game, so I am proud that they have learned how to play it.

We got this game for Christmas several years ago, but only recently have learned to play it.
Now it is one of our favorite family games.

Durango Train Fieldtrip

The boys went on the Durango Silverton Railroad for a school fieldtrip yesterday.
We had such a good time and we had beautiful weather too.

Here is the train depot.

Here is the whole school together. We love being a part of this little country school.

View from the train. It is really beautiful up there.

The boys and I had a great experience on the train. It is something we won't soon forget.

Newest Members of the Family

We recently added two cats to our family.

I am allergic to cats, so this has been a drastic change for me.
We have to keep them in Kaleb's room for a week for them to get used to us.
Now they are living in the garage, so my allergies aren't too bad.
It will be another couple of weeks before we let them outside, so they don't run away.
To make a long story short, we have mice. We need cats.


We had a great Easter weekend this year. It was beautiful outside and the trees are
all in bloom.

The Robertson family spent the weekend with us at the beginning of their
Spring Break. The boys really enjoyed spending time with their second cousins.

We spent the weekend decorating eggs and having a egg hunt. They also explored our land and surrounding areas and building forts.
It was a wonderful weekend! A great way to end spring break.

Spring Break in Los Angeles, CA

Okay, so I know I haven't been very good about posting on my blog. Once every few months
is about as good as I get. So here is the latest with our family.

We went to Los Angeles, CA for Spring Break a couple of weeks ago.
We went to Six Flags Magic Mountain:

Landon rode his first big roller coaster on this trip. He loved it!
Landon and I spent most of the time together in the kiddie area.

The Los Angeles LDS Temple:

An evening on Malibu Beach:

We also went and saw the tourist sights like Hollywood Blvd, the Hollywood sign and we ate at
the Hard Rock Hollywood.
We had a great trip and came home with lots of great memories.
