Spring Fever

I am sick.
I was just self-diagnosed with spring fever ( aka- cabin fever ).
I had to change the title picture because I am so tired of winter and indoors. The picture was taken on a camping trip to willow flats one of the most beautiful places on earth to me.
Looking at these pictures brings back good memories and excitement for this years camping trip.

Happy Birthday Eric

Happy 41st Birthday Eric -Tuesday January 13th. We had a wonderful day. After kindergarten let out Justin and I took Eric to lunch at Ye Lion's Den. (Thanks for the gift card Grandma and Grandpa.) Justin has been so excited for Eric's birthday, he has been counting down using the Christmas countdown since after Christmas. I think Justin was more excited than Eric. Tuesday morning when Justin woke up he immediately ran in yelling " Happy Birthday Dad " and gave Eric a big hug. Then even before breakfast he had Eric open up his present, -a digital photo frame to sit on his desk at work. After we came back from lunch I made a cake and Justin put all 41 candles on it and asked Eric if he could help blow them out at the right time.
My Dad and Mom dropped by in the afternoon to see Eric and later tha
t night Amy and her family came for a visit. That night Justin asked Eric, "Did you have a good birthday Dad" ? Eric replied yes and Justin said that he was very happy. Since then we all have been enjoying " Outdoor Adventures " a Wii game Eric received. It is great fun.

In the words of Justin

This kid really cracks me up. He says the funniest things all the time. Like the other day- "Hurry Mom get me a tissue, my nose is leaking" or 2 days ago at breakfast he informed us that " I know why the corn you eat comes out good, -- It gets ressurected". When anything and I mean anything is hard or crusty he refers to it as "frozen". - He often says he has frozen bugers and occassionally a frozen you know what. Last night he said " I ate so much , my tummy is so full of poop", " Dad you must have a lot of poop in your tummy, you need a bigger shirt". When I was helping him with his prayers I coached Him to say " Help me to not tease Nicole" he said that and quickly added " Help mom be nice to me and let me do what I want".

We love you Justin.

One of our favorited things to do in the wintertime is sledding. The best place is Romer Park.

The hill is steep and long.

The view is great.

After when I went to pick up the pizza, they stole my camera and took some candid shots.

Spoiled Jack

Okay so I know that Jack is spoiled. We let him sleep on the bed with us.
Eric makes him comfortable with a pillow covered with a blanket and when he lays down he covers him with a blanket.
He also sits up to the dinner table with us. We have a tall chair that he sits on.
Here is a picture of him enjoying his favorite plain double cheeseburger.

Chuck E Cheese

Monday we all went to Chuck E Cheeses. When I say all, I mean Amy, Curt and their 5 youngest, Jon, Karrie and Nathan and Eric, Me, Nicole and Justin. It was quite the event. It seems that everyone in Northern Utah had the same idea as we did. It was packed. We had great fun playing the games and winning tickets. I really scored big on the race car game. I hit the jackpot 5 or 6 times.

When the kids saw my tickets spitting out of the game they tried to take it over. I had to tell them it was occupied.

Those darn kids gave me dirty looks and tried to tell their parents on me.

Justin was so happy when I gave him all my winnings. He was happy when he turned in his tickets and got candy and a basketball.

I don't think Amy was having too much fun.

Nicole hung out with Meghan and had a blast.

I told the kids we would maybe go back when school lets out for spring break. Secretly I want to go sooner. Maybe one day Justin and I will go after kindergarten when no one is there.
