Memorial Day- Golden Spike

We spent our memorial day with Gramps and Grammie McNeal. We drove out to the Golden Spike area and the girls were able to see the reinactment of the meeting of the two trains, and the driving of the Golden Spike.

Bear Lake

Last week I took the girls up to Bear Lake where Micah's dad's employer has a time share condo up there. I took them up last monday and they stayed until friday. They had so much fun playing with their cousins and spending time with their Oma and Opa, Aunts and Uncles.
Micah started summer school and was unable to go. I think he enjoyed having some quite time at the house to study and get some much needed house stuff done.
They came home tan and exhausted. Elsa is on year-around and was off track that week. Livy was telling me how "Oma turned my brains." I didnt quite understand what she meant until after maybe the fourth time she told me I realized she had meant that "Oma trimmed my bangs." Kids really do say the darnest things.

Spring! Spring! Spring!

Its finally starting to warm up! Opa's birthday was this past weekend and We got together and celebrated by taking a hike up immigration canyon. There was still quite a bit of snow and so the 3 mile hike turned into about 50ft. The kids shoes and clothes were instantly muddy and we were missing some jackets. We turned around and went back to Brecken's house for cake and ice cream. It was fun to finally get outside and enjoy the weather.
Elsa has started soccer and scored a goal on Saturday. She really enjoys getting out there and running around.
In the Relief Society, we just finished our "Week of Women" activity. It was a lot of fun but a lot of work. I was able to get Bonnie Parkin (former General RS pres) to come and speak to our ward and another ward we invited. I was a little disapointed that we didnt have as large of a turn out as I would have liked, but it was very uplifting and spiritual. I am so amazed at the woman she is and what she has experienced in her travels. It really made me greatful that I am where I am in the world at this time.
Mother's Day was great. I woke up to Hillie climbing into our bed and kissing me on the lips (she doesn't normally do that). Elsa and Livy kept telling me "Happy Mother's day" and gave me lots of hugs and kisses. It really made me greatful for the opportunity I have had to be a mother and see my little girls grow. Some of my family (the ones who still live in UT) came over and we BBQed chicken. It was nice to relax and have fun.
Pregnancy is going slowly but good. I am now 29 weeks, 11 more to go! The girls are constantly wanting to feel the baby kick. They are so excited to meet their little brother. I still can't pull Micah down from the clouds. He is probably the most eager for the pregnancy to end.
