So, I walked into the playroom last night and discovered this beautiful work of art created by Madison and Jordan...

Quite the little Van Goghs, aren't they?

Zachary's Baptism

We got to attend our nephew Zachary McQuaids baptism this weekend in Panaca. It was a lot of fun to have almost all the family together - Andrew and Em and kids came up from CA and Michelle and Nikolai even flew in from CO. The kids had a blast running around with their cousins all weekend. I want to let Zachary know how proud we are of him for choosing to get baptized. Thanks to Renea for the pictures - I forgot our camera.

Zach's baseball cake!

Yesterday was Jordan's first day of preschool. He absolutely loved it! He was so excited to have his own little Cars backpack. He is so independent and had no problem saying 'see ya, Mom!' I was a little sad to see him go, but I do have to admit it was pretty nice to have a couple hours of quiet (Josh's nap time corresponds perfectly with preschool)! Anyway, here is Jordan looking all cute and ready for school:

Sand, Sun & Seashells

We just got back from a fun weekend in Coronado. Here are a few pictures from our trip:

The kids in the big hole they dug.

Playing in the waves.

A very, very sandy Joshua having a blast at the beach. It took two baths and a swim in the hotel pool just to get all the sand out of his hair and ears!
