Recent fun times

Happy Spring! I think it is finally here and we are loving Dad's tulips, it feels like they are this great reward for the long winter. He is happy to be able to enjoy his passion of gardening and has planted, corn, onions, carrots as well as lots of pretty flowers. Today he plans to plant the tomatoes but right now he has the freezer torn apart, it hasn't been working right as of late. I'm grateful he is so handy.Speaking of passions, I need a new one so if you have any ideas send them my way. I thought it would be the piano but it isn't. I love learning to play and am so glad I am doing it but I don't feel passionate about it like I thought I would. I still love to scrapbook but soon we will need to build on a new room just to keep them in. I feel passionate about my grandchildren and really need them to live closer so I can take them places and buy them things and spoil them more.

Here are a few photos of some fun days.
We were able to visit Marc, Connie, Kellen and Caleb and go to one of Kellen's soccer games. Marc was the coach and he was so great with all those little kids, it was just a blast to watch. There were maybe three who actually played the game, one of those being Kellen. He was exhausted from chasing the ball and making, seriously, all the goals. The little girls just walked around holding hands and singing Christmas Carols. So fun! They are building a room on to their house and it was so fun to spend time there. Thanks guys!
Jenni and I took her new car on it's first road trip to Boise and stopped to visit Em, Steve and Easton who were visiting Steve's parents so that was a treat to spend time with them even though it was only 24 hours.
The day care kids have been pretty fun lately and we just celebrated Emma's 4th birthday. I love her and will miss her next Fall as she is going off to pre school as will my other cute 4 year old girls. I am counting the days until my Summer break but I really do love these girls.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!! Be careful what you wish for though, I always wanted peace and quiet on Mother's day when all the kids were little and now that I have that, I'm not so sure it's all it's cracked up to be. I am really so grateful to be a mother and grandmother!!
