Catch up!

Well, alot has happened in the last month-Scott's birthday, Valentine's Day, a trip to Disneyland, and meetings with friends and family. It has been a blast, and I have fallen into my normal procrastination state, so I now I need to catch up, so here it goes: Normal Daily happenings-I like to take pictures around the house of the boys doing silly things. They are silly and they make me laugh-most of the time. Here are some funny things that they have been up to lately: We have all kinds of toys in the house, and they boys would rather put blankets over their heads-who knew?!

Carrots grew randomly in our backyard. Dallin was so excited! Mommy having a carrot! Evan just being so cute. The brown-eyed trio! Pirate Dallin! We went to a birthday party where there was a magician who painted the kids faces. The girls got cute butterflys and sparkly things...all the boys got the pirate look. It was so funny. In fact Evan had one too, but then he ate a sticky lollipop and so it was washed away. Evan doing what he does best-sitting at the table, eating! Dallin's sandwich looked like a bat...he is obsessed with batman! Daddy's birthday was a hit! The boys helped make the cake, then we suprised dad when he walked in the house. Dallin "hid" and jumped out when dad got home! He then opened his presents-which I think Dallin was more excited about the present opening than dad. Dad was so excited when he opened up Rockband-rock on! It has been a blast to play! We then went to the Macaroni Grill and then had friends over for cake. It was a great day!

These are pic's of dads birthday and the valentine get together we had with our Park Group. As you can see, it was all about the pink frosting for the boys!

Visit from Grandma Perry!

Grandma Perry was nice enough to come visit us the last weekend in January. We were supposed to travel up there but due to several things (one of which was Dallin giving his first scripture in Primary) we couldn't make it so she decided she needed to see the boys and drove down after work. We had such a wonderful visit with her and packed in about as much as you can in one day-we went to the Mormon Battalion festival in Old town, then went to the mexican restaurant "El Indio" (featured on Diners, drive-ins and dives of the food network-pretty good) and then over to Coronado for the sunset. It was a lovely day and a wonderful visit with grandma. We were all sad to see her drive away on Sunday but she did get to see or I should say hear Dallin's first "scripture" in Primary! We love you grandma Perry!

Park Day at Free Museums at Balboa Park

So every Tuesday different museums at Balboa Park open their doors for free to the public. Every week there are different museums that are free. So Park group was held at the Car Museum one week...and since most of the group that goes are boys, let's just say that they had a great time (although the one little girl who was there had a good time too). We went to the Car Museum first, which wouldn't let us bring in our strollers, so it was quite a bit of work to keep the kids-well the little ones like Evan on the right side of the chain barriers, but the kids had a blast. They even had an area with a "ride able" motorcycle and the frame of a car. The kids loved that area. Evan is going through this stage where he loves to drive the you can imagine how happy he was to sit in the "front seat" and steer the steering wheel. I was impressed with all of the cool classic cars that were there, in fact I wouldn't mind going back and actually reading about the cars. Dallin's favorite car was the red Lamborghini, he especially loved the cool "flying" doors. He also liked the red Ferrari. What can I say he has great taste. After a little while spent in Car museum we headed to the Aerospace Museum which was also very impressive. We saw a command module (think Apollo 13), space suit, planes, name it. The boys and the inner child in me had a blast. After a few hours of playing in the museums we had lunch outside! It was a long but nice day!

After the fun at the museum we played with the camera with Dad:

Synchronized Swimming video

I have had several people ask me about the synchronized video-so here it is. (This is from our ward Christmas party. A bunch of the girls from our ward got together and performed this "gem".) I am posting the video that Scott took with Dallin's commentary. You can't really hear the music, so imagine music from the Nutcracker! Enjoy! (This is where the popular swim cap that my boys love to wear came from)

(I am the one in red-sorry I meant to say that earlier)
