Rylee has been doing the Upstart program 5 days a week for 15 minutes since last September and it's really starting to pay off.  She's recognizing lots of sight words and has learned how to sound words out.  She's even starting to read.  I'm amazed how much she's learned from doing this program.

The poor "poly-polies" don't stand a chance when these 3 girls are around.  They always want to pick them up and hold them and have smashed a few in the process.

These cousins have been spending a lot of time together while Ben and Becky get all packed up and moved into their new house.  Good thing they get along so well and love playing together!

Bert got home late last night from another Santa Barbara trip so he had the day off.  We went out to lunch and got some errands done and then we picked the boys up from school and we all went to see Kung Fu Panda 3.  After the movie we went straight to the Jack & Jill Bowling Alley in  Lehi.  Our Ward Council was invited to go bowling tonight and the kids loved it.  This was the first time we've taken Addi and Jordy and they had a good time bowling and running back and forth between Nana and our Bishop's wife, who they affectionately call Grandma Dee.  Deanne is in the nursery with them and they love her!

I loved the tiny bowling shoes that the little girls had on.  They were so cute!!

Rylee made a volcano today at school and is so excited to make it erupt later.

While I did some weeding today the girls picked me a bouquet.

Erin and Dave were nice enough to invite us up for Family Home Evening tonight.  We had pizza for dinner and then Dave built a fire and we made s'mores.  Jordy had about one bite and decided she was done but Addi ate the whole thing and had marshmallow all over her when she was done.

We checked out this morning and headed home.  We all had so much fun and it was nice to get away and spend lots of time together.  These girls loved sharing a bed and took forever to settle down every night before they fell asleep.

We made breakfast burritos this morning in the kitchen and then spent most of the day playing in the pool. 

Addi was a little fish on this trip.  She wanted to swim by herself and wasn't afraid of the water at all.  The boys wore Casey out and had so much fun swimming with him and letting him throw them in the water.


We fed the kids some Mac and Cheese and then put them to bed.  The girls were exhausted and went right to sleep and the boys stayed up watching a movie.

Casey and Megan invited us up to Park City to stay with them at the Marriott while Megan works a couple of shifts.  We almost didn't make it because Rylee threw up a couple of times last night but then seemed fine the rest of the day so we decided to go anyway.  We got some dinner right after we got there and then had to hit the pool for a swim before bed.  We shared a big common room that had 2 bedrooms off of it so there was plenty of room for everyone.

We had a fun, busy day today while the boys are out of school for Spring Break.  We stopped at a fun toy store first and then drove up to Fashion Place Mall.  We had lunch with Bert at the Red Robin and then we went to the Lego Store so the boys could spend their gift cards they got for Christmas.

She's been playing so hard with cousins for the past 3 days that she completely wore herself out.

Ben and Becky hosted a huge sleepover tonight in their new house.  The big kids got to sleep downstairs in the family room and the 3 little girls were upstairs in the toy room.

Tiff and I have been helping Becky paint the kids rooms in their new house while Mom and Ben take care of all of the kids.

We had quite the nail painting party while listening to General Conference this morning.

The boys were invited to Jude's birthday party today.  They went to Provo Beach Resort first and then ended up back at the Wightman's house for cake and presents.

The other day when we were driving I told Rylee how much I love Forsythias and I started pointing them out to her.  Now every time we drive anywhere she takes it upon herself to point them out and yell out "forcynthia."
