Farm Animals

We went to Thanksgiving Point with the girls preschool class to see all the farm animals. We saw cows, sheep, goats, chickens, peacocks, ducks, turkeys, horses, rabbits,and pigs. The highlight of the field trip was of coarse the pony rides. Lizzy had been talking about the pony rides for a long time and wanted to ride the biggest pony. Ali also rode the biggest pony. We had sack lunches there too. That was a fun field trip!

Warm Day

It was a nice spring day out the other day so I decided to get the sprinkler out and let the kids have some fun. I also planted my first garden. I planted corn, carrots, and green beans. The sprouts have already begun to pop out of the ground. Hopefully we will get something good out of it. It takes a couple months before the vegetables will be ready to harvest.

Mom's Graduation

On Friday, May 1st, my mom Kathy Bennett graduated from Utah Valley University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology with an emphasis in Social Work. She has had this goal for a long time and we are proud of her for achieving it. She did really well in school and graduated with honors for her academic work and leadership. She now plans on getting a job within the field and going on to get her master's degree. Congratulations Mom, we are so proud of you!
P.S. Yes we are expecting baby #4 in Nov. (That is why I am so huge!)

Uncle Scot and Megan's visit

A couple weekends ago Shae's brother, Scot, and his girlfriend, Megan, came to visit for the weekend. The girls were really excited to see Uncle Scot since we don't get to see him very often now that he lives in Boise. The kids had fun playing with Scot and Megan. They were spoiled with all the attention they got. We hung out, played games, and went out to dinner. We are glad Scot found Megan. We love her! But we are planning on seeing them hopefully in June and going to Lagoon together.
