Family Visit

We were excited to have Doug's brother Darren and his family come to visit. They have one little adorable boy named Judson who is 3. Unfortunately, I didn't take a lot of pictures...but I did get this one of Judson and Mason holding hands. So cute:

While they were here, we took a walk along the Poudre River Trail, had a picnic in the mountains, and went swimming and mini golfing at the funplex. Fun times.

Scrapbooking weekend.

My sisters and I were able to get together for a scrapbooking weekend. We went out to eat, shopped, stayed in a hotel, and just enjoyed each other's company. These always go by so quickly. My mom usually joins us for these weekends, but unfortunately she wasn't able to make it this trip. Hopefully next time...

Kaylee sings

Kaylee had her Spring Concert with the Silver Falcon singers. It was very enjoyable to watch her sing. They performed several showtunes or songs from musicals.

She loves music.

Doug's Birthday

Doug's birthday was on his last day of school. We went out to dinner to celebrate. He turned 39! Happy Birthday!

Lexi's 2nd grade class had to choose one topic of their choice and give a 20 minute presentation on that topic. She had to write an essay paper to go along with her topic. The topic she chose was on China. For part of her presentation she had to have some kind of DVD, display board, slide show, model, etc. She ended up making this DVD...with her parents help, of course: (Warning: It is over 10 minutes long)

In addition to this DVD she spoke about the children in China, the food, and the language. She also passed out chopsticks to her entire class. She did a great job!

Noah's first haircut

Noah had his hair cut for the first time today. The evidence (eewwww): The result:
He is blonde, so it's hard to see his hair in this picture. What a cute young man.

High Marks

Jordan was able to play his trumpet in his very first Solo & Ensemble festival this year. Doug just entered him on his own (it was not initiated by his school band). It was a very good experience for him and Jordan received high marks. He received a one minus from all of the judges. Great job Jordan! This actually happened near the beginning of the year, but he just barely received his ribbon.
