Aspen's Field Trip

Aspen's 3rd grade class took a field trip to see the movie EARTH. We had a great time. If you like the shows Planet Earth you would like this movie. It had some really funny parts in it, the part Aspen and I loved was when these little birds were trying to fly for the first time. They really didn't fly they just fell out of the tree gracefully. I had a good time with her and took these pictures of Aspen and her good friend Abby!!!

11 Years of Bliss!!!

So Ryan and I just celebrated our 11 year anniversary on Saturday. Our wonderful friends Alanna and Devin watched our children. Thank you so much I don't know what I would do with out you guys. So we went to a restaurant we had never tried but had heard was good. It is called Mt. Fuji and is located in Fort Collins. We had to take off our shoes to sit at the table. You pick from a variety of platters such as: Beef, Chicken and Seafood. Ry and I love seafood so we got the seafood platter. Then you have a burner that has a soup base that you bring to a boil and add vegetables to make a rice noodle soup but you also cook your seafood in it for a minute or so. Then you could dip your seafood into all of these different kinds of sauces. It was really good!!! I am so glad we got to go on a date to celebrate our marriage.

Easter Fun!!!

So we had a great Easter. The Easter Bunny left an easter trail of fun filled eggs and of course an easter basket with cool outfits. That Easter Bunny sure knows Aspen loves her basketball shorts and Brit loves his soccer clothes. We went to church and then drove to Aurora to spend time with family and ate great food and we were lucky enough to have the Easter Bunny visit there with another easter egg hunt. My Mom surprised me with this beautiful Easter Lilly it smells so good! It was a fantastic day.

SpRiNg Time Flowers

I am not a green thumb at all. We mostly have rockbeds but we did leave room for our spring flowers. Here are some photos of what has came up so far. We still have tulips and a couple other flowers (that I don't know what they are called) that need to come up. These are so pretty and just put a smile on my face so I thought I would take some pictures. Best of all barely any maintenance. That is my kind of flower!!!

Coloring Easter Eggs

This week we have spring break and we spent some of it at my mom's house. She had a cataract removed so we went down there to help mom out. We had a great time seeing movies, going out to dinner, shopping and just visiting. So we decided to dye easter eggs and these are the pictures I took. We all had so much fun!!!

Aspen's School Concert

Aspen had a school concert on April 2nd. The 2nd and 3rd graders made up different poems about colors and then the 4th and 5th graders played the instruments to the poem. Aspen's class made up a poem to darkness. Here is how it went.

Dark night it was, Shadow I saw, Depressing night,
Darkness at night gave me a fright
Burnt Oreo, Silly Oil, Gorilla face
The Gorilla plays his records
Darkness at night, Gave me a fright, Nothing seems right
It made the gorilla nervous
They all had to wear black see the 1st picture of Aspen dressed in black. The second picture was everyone that performed. The last picture is Aspen's class dancing to their poem.

Ryan and Britain at a Denver Nuggets Game

Ryan at the last minute decided to take Britain to a Nuggets game because Brit has been so into playing and watching basketball. So he got the tickets off of Craig's List and he got 9 rows up from the court behind the Nuggets bench. They got there early to see if they could get some autographs and they ended up getting 3 of them they were: Scott Hastings, Dante Jones and Chris Anderson. Then Ryan noticed during the game they were sitting a few rows back from Kenyon Martin's mom. Ryan told Britain to go down and ask Kenyon's mom if he could have his headband after the game. Brit was hesitant at first but did it and she flagged her son down and he got an asst. mgr. to grab a new one out of the locker room and brought it to Kenyon's mom who brought it up to Brit and said "It's not Kenyon's but I hope it will do." Brit was thrilled and loves wearing it! What a great Father and Son day!!!
