We Love Our Friends

Our friends came out from New York to visit (in May. Only two months behind). It was awesome. So we ordered the good weather.

One of the highlights of the trip was going out to a local farm to pick strawberries, snap peas, and other delicious and fresh fruits & veggies. Twas mahvelous.

My girls!

Is John saying "Have a strawberry" or "Please take it. I don't like how this feels in my hand."?

John and Norah were like two peas in a pod. Just like the day they were born in the same hospital. In this photo they're probably just laughing at an awesome joke I made up and not at all watching Monsters Inc.

Meanwhile, these guys realized they both like to chew on giraffes, and bonded.

Whilst Cam recognizes a good photo op and seizes it, apparently I look like I've just witnessed something terrible.

Do you ever get an urge to make a sand toaster and accompanying plate of toast? No? It's just us? Weird.

At any rate, it was really fun to see our peeps on our side of the country. Friends are great. Thanks for coming!

Easter 2011

Continuing with our trend of being about a month or two behind, here are a few shots of our Easter this year.

We were once again lucky to be able to spend the holiday with family. It was wonderful, even despite A. that it was FREEZING! (seriously, what is up with Utah not letting go of winter this year?), and B. I was fighting a terrible infection at the time, which sort of put a damper on the festivities for me. But here's a bunch of happy kiddos, so you know it was good.

Getting ready to dye eggs.

The loot!

The hunt:

And more fun with these two, including more shenanigans with these two in costumes. See here and here.

Hope you had a happy Easter! We sure did.

Happy Spring!

Spring has been in full force around here. Here are a few recent snapshots to give an idea what we've been up to. In early March we were lucky to have two of my sisters and their families in town.

We had a fun day at Disneyland:

And a glorious day at the beach:

And just had a great time hanging out. I LOVED having some of my people here.

During Nathan's spring break we were able to drive out to Palm Springs to meet my parents for the tennis tournament at Indian Wells.

My mom, being the awesome mom and grandma that she is, watched our kids at the hotel so that Nathan and I could go watch some tennis with my dad. Thanks again Mom & Dad!

(that's R Fed just warming up)

It was a lot of fun. We also got in some serious pool time while in the desert.

And around here we've been up to some of our usual shenanigans. Hanging around the house:

Going for walks:

(yes, both of my kids are still in their pjs in this photo)

And getting out for an occasional treat or day at the beach:
