Tate and i were able to sneak away Friday night and go to Salt lake. We got a hotel and everything. I know really splurged. (thanks court:) Tate got me tickets to miranda lambert concert for valentines day so we left the kids with Grandma and cousins and spent the weekend in SL. We got to go to the sportsmans expo and see Jeremy, it's always good to see him and his other buddies. We walked around, I bought some jewelry and some sunglasses and we headed off to visit Brit and Kye for a few minutes. Then off to the concert. It was so much fun being able to just go and do whatever and spend some fun quality time with Tate.
I think that every couple needs to have a little bit of time together. It's so important to me and my relationship with Tate. It's fun to remember the reasons why we love each other in a different dating sort of way. The concert was alot of fun. I like a good, clean country concert. It's fun to sit and watch the drunk cowboys, and it's fun to sing along and dance to a few of the songs I know. Tate is such a music person. He likes music, I love music too, but there aren't too many songs that I even know the name and the artist of. I just sing along with whatever makes me feel happy and just go from there. Love this guy of mine!
I am so sad that i didnt take more pictures while we were in Talmage. I did manage to snap a few cute ones of kasen on the tractor with his cousin sam. He had a blast playing with his cousins, i mean non stop awesomeness. I love being out there, it's so tempting sometimes to just pick up and move and be there with the family, where our kids can grow up with cousins and be around grandparents. its a fabulous place.
the boys have great imaginations. they would go from one game to the next in a matter of minutes. it's fun having cousins close in age and its even more fun when they get along and play good together
. Love that smile. melts my heart.
While visiting Grandma Brenda Daisha has learned how to throw a cute little fit. She is for sure growing up and developing a little attitude. She still loves to give people a scowl, which for now is cute, but everytime she does it, I think to myself how this isn't going to be funny when she is serious about it and not trying to be cute.
A few sundays ago we went to church with the cousins. They were so adorable walking into the building that i just HAD to snap a picture of the cuteness. They were so good to walk side by side and help the younger ones out. luckily i had a camera in my bag to grab real quick.
I think that pictures like these are priceless. Love them!

Last weekend we got to spend the weekend with Tate's sister and her children. It was such a fun time. It was warm enough to be able to play outside and play out side we did. they have such a fun back yard full of swings, toys, and even a fire pit. we roasted marshmallows on the make shift fire that barely burned. i love spending time at shanna's house. i love being able to just visit with her and watch our kids play and laugh, such a great stage of life I am in. love it!
daisha really enjoyed their little play house, she would play peek a boo and play in there forever.
I love this picture. shanna was pushing olivia super high in the swing and i got a good shot of her face. she was loving it, and kept saying higher, higher. she couldnt get much higher than this.

Daisha has always been a pretty dang good eater. She has eaten most anything I give to her besides potatoes, which I find really interesting. I often find her downstairs in the rice bucket that we colored a while back just snacking away. She loves to eat that rice and doesn't seem to think that it's a tiny bit gross. The other day we decided to paint and she thought that was pretty delicious as well. She kept on dipping her fingers in and licking away. I tried to get hand prints of both of them to keep and i could not for the life of me get her to keep her hands still on the paper without them smearing. I went through alot of paper trying to get a good print but to no avail, i failed. maybe when she is a bit older. I got some good ones of Kasen's hands though so that is good to have. They are pretty cute little hand prints.
The proof is all over her face :)
I am not sure what the occasion was on this day but we had a fun popcorn and chip party. Nutritious huh:) Sometimes that the joy's of being home all day long, you just need to have a movie party once and a while. It's a fun thing to be a mom and get to play with your kiddos.
A few weeks ago we went to the Idaho Museum and visited the T-Rex named Sue. It was pretty awesome. They had all sorts of exhibits and things to read. The kids would have rathered just played with all the hands on things but I was very interested in reading all the information that they had.
Daisha wasn't too excited about being on the saddle.
Kasen was loving it though. We played the majority of the time in the little kids area. They have a place where it's set up for children with a teepee, a little log cabin, and some fish. Among a bunch of extremely gross stuffed animals that the kids loved putting their hands on and playing with. Germs galore!
We had a fun outing in Idaho Falls at the museum. Kasen has a new love for Terranadons. While we were CO he was lucky enough to be handed down a wonderful purple Terranadon and he plays with it constantly and sleeps with it almost EVERY night. We were lucky enough to see a dino that looked semi-like a terranadon so he was happy.
