A favorite moment

Bella loves to ask questions. This is one that got me!
Mom, who is Heavenly Mother?
Where are Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother?
Are they bigger than us?
If they made us, then who made them?

Finally some beauty popping out from under the snow! big smile!!

Just the other day we woke up to this.

The same day, Bella thought it would be fun to run under the drips of melting snow falling off the roof! It only lasted about 30seconds!

I feel warmth today, and it's beautiful!

So I am almost a week late, but here they are anyway. Danny and Jan got these cute colored chicks for the girls, they were so excited all we heard were squeals and chirps for the first 10 minutes! It took Olea about 5 minutes of squeezing the things until she realized they were real, and then she just wanted to give them a push on the swing! Jack just happened to be here and he was so thrilled! We gave him the green one to hold and I just let him hold it around the neck long enough for the picture. Gabby named the pink one pink-O-licious, and Bella loved the Blue one she named Blue-bell. None of the chicks were harmed during this event!!

On Saturday, Grandma had her annual Easter egg hunt.

Happy 2nd Birthday Olea Grace

If you ask Olea how old she is she will tell you "four" and well, she could possibly have turned four by just how mature and wild she is! her real birthday was on the day we got back into town, so we celebrated a week later. Auntie Gina made her darling cupcake cake. Olea dug into it the second we placed it in front of her.
Olea, Lela, Coke, Coco, are the names she goes by, and I love this girl so much! she has been pure Joy since the day she was born!!

7 hours in the sun

We only had two days left in beautiful Hawaii so we took advantage of the sun and went to Waimea Bay again, but this time we stayed all day! It was a perfectly clear day, and the water was bright hues of blue and green. We sat by the rocks where the tunnels were and watched the people jump of the huge rock in the water. Ben and Sean snorkeled most the time and brought back random shells and sea creatures for the girls. I went out snorkeling, and got totally freaked out by thinking sharks were close by, since we were out in the deep. I should have brought sunscreen, but there were no burns after 7 hours in the sun. It was just another perfect day!

These two reminded me of the kids in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang!
