April was an interesting month. We enjoyed conference and Easter during the first 2 weeks of the month. After that, right when it was starting to get warm, winter decided to catch up and dump all the snow that had not fallen in the months before. We had 2 big storms. The second one left about 18 inches on the ground. The kids loved it. They got to play and build some snowmen. JoLynn got to do some more snow sculptures too. The good thing about the snow is that it was melted within 48 hrs and made everything very green. We are now enjoying that. We also found out that the kids like pets. So we caught some flies and worms for them and they loved it. They don't last, but they are free. May usually brings great weather to Colorado, so we are looking forward to enjoying some of that. Kylie can't wait until June, when she turns 5!

March was a fun month. We started with Austin's 3rd birthday. We had a lot of fun with it. He is into volcanos and dinosaurs, so his cake had a volcano theme and he got a dinosaur as a gift. He got others later too. The day he turned 3, he also started pre-school. He seems to be enjoying it. Kylie will join him in the same building when she starts kindergarten in August. March was also very dry here in Denver, until the blizzard we had on March 27th. That one dropped a foot of snow with a lot of wind. Two days later we got another 5 inches. Right now we are getting some more snow and we are suppossed to have another strong storm this Saturday. So winter is not over yet. We look forward to general conference in April as well as Easter and warmer weather.
