Easter at Grandma's & Grandpa's

Since Dane & I flew in late Saturday night from Utah we decided to just stay at my parents and then Jerry & the boys would join us after church for dinner and Easter activities. We do an "Easter Egg Bashing" contest and due to lack of participants, Brandt took home the trophy. Brandt was excited, Jayce . . . not so much. He won last year but has a hard time losing. And then of course an Easter egg hunt. Always a good time at Grandma & Grandpa's.

Trip to Utah

Dane and I enjoyed a nice little vacation to Utah. Holly, my old roommate, was getting married so since Dane still flies free I thought sure I'll take him with me. We had a great time. It was so much fun to see Holly & Trisha . . . it had been a long time. We stayed will Jill and that's always a blast. We were also able to visit Nate & Bri in there new home in Eagle Mountain (we miss you in Cali).

Vacation in Arizona

We just got back from a fun weekend in Arizona. We've always wanted to go up for Spring Training and this year we finally did it. It was great! Since we had never been before, there were a few things we learned the hard way. We learned not to wait till the last minute to buy tickets because you'll end up with none and buying them off the street. Which is what we had to do to see a game. Yeah, we got ripped but it was worth every penny. The boys loved it!!

Brandt was all decked out in his Angels gear and loved wearing the back pack. He was one of their biggest cheer leaders. He would just keep yelling, "Go Angles", "Come on Vladi hit a home run over da fence." It was hilarious.

Ok, so maybe Dane couldn't verbally be the best cheer leader but he was right in there clapping everytime someone else was clapping. It was so fun to watch.

Since we missed the game on Friday we were able to walk around the Angels stadium and check everything out. We think the boys might have enjoyed that better than the actual game.

We were also able to spend time with my sister and her family and as you can see, Jayce and Brandt could not get enough of uncle Greg.

Black Eyed Brandt

Nothing like a Wal Mart trip gone bad. No sooner did I turn to grab something off the shelf and I turn back to find Brandt tripping over his flip flop going face down to hit the front bar of the cart. It was bad! Instantly his eye got big and ugly. He was so sweet about. He would say, "mommy, it doesn't hurt it just looks bad."

One isn't enough . . .

Classic isn't it. Just when you think, "can't you take that thing out of your mouth," he sticks another one in. It was a laughing moment for everyone.

His new best friend . . .

Jerry's mom showed up over Christmas with his guitar from when he was a kid. Brandt can't get enough of it. We were watching a Daughtry concert and Brandt says, "dad, pause it, I gotta get my guitar." Not to mention every time he hears the song Home, he can't sing it loud enough.
