My sister-in-law Michelle (Bassett) came and stayed with Ben & I for a few days and I thought I'd share with you our adventures. First off, we got to go to the Twin Falls Temple site on Thursday and got pictures. We convinced one of the construction worker to take a pictures for us. Beautiful!
Then Bart came up on Friday night and Saturday, we met a few of my neighbors at the park and did slack lining. It's kind of like tight rope walking except for it's not very high and the line doesn't stay completely still. You have to learn how to make it stay still. Fun and interesting!
The actual reason for the whole trip was for Bart to bring up the bed that he made me. It turned out amazing and Ben and I absolutely love it. Ben said he wanted a big bed and he got it. The head board itself is 6 feet tall. Yes, I have to step on the edge to get in, but I love it:)
Saturday night we got to go to the Monster Truck show that was in Twin. Ben doesn't look real happy, but we all had a blast. It was so much fun spending time together.....and the monster trucks were cool too;)
And then, after the show was over, we got to go down and take pictures by the trucks. I am She-Woman, the most amazing, crazy strong twig woman in the world! Just kidding, but it was an awesome picture moment. All four of us posed that way once I started it. We had a great time. Spending time with family is one of the most rewarding thing ever. Have a great day:)

Summer.....Spring fun

This is Chris's fun new summer toy. We don'g have a pool around here(that is within reson of pricing) and the Snake River is a bit big for my 4 (almost 5) year old. Well, Monday was our first time trying it out. We had my neighbor, Becky, and her 3 kids, Russel-5, Chanel-almost 3, and Ambree-3 months, come play with us. Chris is climbing the rock climbing portion to get up to the slides while Chanel's aiming one of the the cannons at the slide.

This is Chris playing on Monday on the smaller slide. He's figured out that if you stay to the left, you can avoid getting sprayed by the shower sprayer that keeps the slide wet. It was over 70 degree's, but that water was still really cold.
Chris and Russel would race to the top, then let each other go down first because if they went down together, they'd splash on each other. It's one thing to splash on yourself, it's another to have someone else splash on you!
This is the 3 of them playing at the end of the bigger slide. The water was shallower and had an easier time warming up in the sun then the bigger pool. They had a blast! And us smart mothers' put them in sunscreen, but forgot to apply our own. Oops! But can't complain about a beautiful day, enough to get sunburnt and swim, in early May:)
