What a Weekend!

We had a great weekend! Hayden had her first soccer game but I didn't get any great shots so those pictures are still to come:) I also made the team banner so I will take pictures of that this weekend.

We went to the Mormon Battalion Visitors Center in San Diego on Saturday. We went on the tour and panned for gold. It was a story with which I was not previously familiar, and I was amazed at the faith of the Saints who traveled from Iowa to Southern California. This journey allowed them to earn the money and skills necessary to help the other Saints traveling to Utah.

While visiting the Visitors Center we also walked around Old Town San Diego. We went to an old-fashioned candy store and ate at a great Mexican restaurant.

Here is Jude sporting his San Francisco Giants outfit! Even though we live in SoCal our kids will learn from their father that Bay Area sports teams are the best (UCLA is the exception to that rule).

Link found Hayden's lipstick.

Link has been wanting to be a big helper lately so I let him set the table at dinner. He did a great job!

Oh Boy(s)!! They decided their dresser was a ladder. We had a serious talk and it will not be happening again!

Happy Easter

We had a wonderful Easter weekend. On Saturday we went on a great hike in the hills behind our home. It might be our new favorite activity.

On Sunday we had some family friends over for a great Easter feast and Easter Egg Hunt.

Here are the kids eating their candy!

The kids (minus Jude).

Our little family!

Daddy and Jude.

Hmmm, who knew you could use an Easter Egg Basket for a hat?
