May 2018

From August to May, Gwen went weekly to sports class. It was held at a nearby park, and Coach Spencer would teach the kids all kinds of sports, from kickball to softball, and tumbling to soccer! It was super fun, and really great for Gwen! They played water games the last few weeks and Gwen was a mix of loving it for the water and hating it for the grassy mess! We all loved doing sports class with Candlelight Sports and will probably do it again!

Carolyn and I decided pretty last minute to go to the Taylor Swift concernt in Glendale. We only had a few days notice, but Carolyn was a champ and learned so many songs. I, on the other hand, was a bit of an embarrassment, but it was so much fun! And I got a shirt with Taylor's face on it, so mission complete. If only I could get one of Britney Spears! 

Walt was in need of a hygienist for a day, so we made a weekend trip of it! We went up to Snowflake to stay with my parents, and then I drove into Pinetop to work! It was great. The weather was beautiful and we loved being outside. The kids got so messy with the dirt, s'mores, and treats galore, but it was all so worth it! 

Our summer schedule is in full swing! Gym, park, swim, eat, sleep, eat play! It's a pretty great schedule!

Cora and Gwen, models for life.

Last day of sports class.
Jan gifted us these dresses, and Emily (Miss Fashionista) wouldn't wear hers without this shirt on top. Comical!

Farris had a dance recital and we went! It was so awesome! We will probably do dance with this group next year!

Taylor Swift!

Post s'mores. . . also, Emily didn't want her pants. It's fine.

Papa, Emily, and Gwen looking at the land at the ranch! Papa is going to build a big kitchen here.

Such a natural! Ha!

We went to the river one Sunday to relax with our toes in the water, and to pick up trash!

Jake, Emily, and Fred.
Tired little snugglers.

Gwen is getting cooler and cooler every minute!
Gwen keeps sneaking into bed. I took this picture because 1. it was cute. 2. it was 7:30 am! She never sleeps that late! Also, let's forgive Jake's creepy eyes being semi open! Ha!

We go to the gym every day, an every day we go check out the pool. It's the best.

April 2018

Emily stealing glasses and fruit snacks from moms at sports class.

Easter Sunday!

I don't know where or when she learned the peace sign, but i'm into it.

We love picking our neighbors roses.
With their permission, of course.
my favorite girls!

oof! Sad owie when Emily hit her mouth on the corner of the wall.

Best gift forever. Thanks, Ninna.

suit suit!
Gwen started dance class and she is the cutest, plus Emily is the best.

At church, all my women hid from me.

March 2018

Busy Marches are our family thing.

We got all of our new couches delivered! Two leather sofas for the living room, and a fabric sectional for our family room. We are in total couch heaven over here.

The Ellsworth grandparents came down from Snowflake and we got to work like we usually do when Papa comes! Toilets were fixed, ventilation areas enhanced, and so many other things that I can't even remember. It's been great.

Jake celebrated his 31st birthday, and we went for our first family swim.

We went to Disneyland and purchased annual passes.

We went to a petting zoo!

We had a great Easter and met Jan!

This was the month that Gwen discovered that all things will die eventually, and to this day (June 3, 2018) still tells everyone about it.

Gwen finally started eating like a semi normal person again. Recall my confusion on how she's survived the last few years eating two bites of food a day?

I hung up some wallpaper and called upon Papa to hang some hooks for me!



Gwen being the doctor. All of those barbies did, in fact, die. But they're okay now.

Park day with Holliday!

Swimming in March!

St. Patrick's Day party at the Mesa Art's Center.

Best little farm ever in Lake Elsinore, California! We cannot wait to come back here!
Emily playing piano at Goofy's house.

Aunt Halle, Emily, Aunt Hannah, and Gwen at Disneyland in the rain!

Goofy's kitchen was the best!!!

She loved this piano.

Contemplating how to live at Disneyland.


Prettiest park ever! We saw skydivers nonstop while eating pizza and borrowing bikes here! Auntie Han, what is this park called again!?
