Dance Competitions

The kids had their last dance competition today at Lagoon.  Lagoon is stupid.  It's especially stupid when you've recently been to Disneyland.  A few trademark images of that point is the completely dead tulips as  you walk into the park.  You would never see a bed of dead flowers at Disneyland.  Also when we went on this scary little ride called Terroride the ride car has to actually push the doors open into the ride.  Even Caleb noticed and commented "Those doors don't even open automatically..."  Caleb and Brandon did like Collases and Wicked.  But after a few hours of rides we were more than done for the day.

The kids danced great.  It was their last competition.  Brynley's team, the Sparkles, actually won as the overall grand champions in their category!  Way to go both Brynley and Caleb!  They have really enjoyed dance this year and it has really helped them with their confidence and many other things!

Spring Happenings

A couple weeks ago the kids had a dance competition in St George.  My mom and I drove down in the morning, had such a fun day cheering on the kids and then drove back at night.  The kids did GREAT and we had such a fun day!

For pinewood derby this year, we made a Perry the Platypus car.  We were so concerned with how fantastic it was looking that we didn't focus too much on it's speed.  Oops...  It didn't come in last though!!  Just towards the end of the line up...

This year we had Easter with the Nyes.  It was so much fun!  They came over to our house for dinner and an egg hunt.  We all had fun with our friends!  I wish I got pictures of Boston chasing Bunny Foo Foo.  It was hilarious!

I'm not sure what else to say about our trip to Disneyland besides that it was absolutely perfect.  Gorgeous weather, good crowd size (not totally dead but not too bad either - max wait time of about 30 minutes on Toy Story - most lines about 15 minutes or so), and almost everyone was healthy (Brandon came down with a bug at the end of the last day).  The only bad thing about it was leaving the 70 degree sunny, Southern CA weather to come back to snowy 5 degree Utah weather.  I want to go back...
