May was a fun month. We started with a lot of rain though. We got all the water we did not get during the winter, which is good. Our lawn is looking great. After that, the weather got really good and we are now able to enjoy it. Austin graduated from pre-school. He had a lot of fun at his field day and graduation party. Kylie is now ready for her last week of school too. She is also turning 7 next week. During Memorial Day weekend we took the kids to a couple of fun places. First, we went to Devil's Head, which is a great hike to a fire watch tower sitting at about 10,000 feet. The kids did great hiking all the way up there. It was an awesome 360 degree view of the front range. The forest we got to hike through is beatiful too. We will be back later in the year to camp around there. We also took the kids to Dinosaur Ridge. This is only about 15 miles from home. It's a area where there are all kids of dinosaur fosils and foot prints. The kids loved it, especially Austin who is quickly becoming a dinosaur professor. June will fly by. We will busy with birthdays, outdoor stuff, swimming, etc. as well as getting prepared to go to Hawaii at the end of the month. Should be fun!

April was a bit of an uneventful month. We had enough good weather to play outside and grill some burgers a couple of times, but it can still get cold enough to snow. At least we are getting a lot of needed rain and our grass is green again. Kylie got to bake he first loaf of bread and she was very proud. Austin keeps learning about dinosaurs and talks to EVERYONE about them. Jason keeps getting big and is starting to expand his vocabulary a little. He is teething again, so he hasn't been the easiest to deal with lately. The kids enjoyed Easter as they do every year. We don't think Jason had a clue of what was going on, but he enjoyed opening the eggs and finding treats. He caught on with that very quickly. The kids are getting ready to finish up school later in the month. We hope to take them to a museum later and camping too. Then we will go to Hawaii and have some fun with them. Ariel continues to play a lot of soccer and Jolynn is still training for some races and going back to BYU to finish her degree, which is close.
