Junior Olympics

Bananas gymnastics place held their annual Jr. Olympics this morning. She has been so excited about her routines. Here are a few pictures. She did really well but I think it made her nervous to have so many people there. I of course was more worried about having the right hair than anything else.... that is my job though right. She rocks the routine I rock the hair!
All the kids got t-shirts and medal for the event. She also got ribbons 2 blue for vault and bars and one red and white for beam and floor. It was a lot of fun! We are proud of our little Banana Good work girlie!

Bear Lake Picnic

After church today we decided to go on a car ride to Bear Lake- we took along a picnic so we could eat dinner while we were there. The real reason we needed a car ride was so Cam could study for his anatomy test tomorrow. He likes to have me quiz him and read him his notes while he drives. That way he is doing something and he also can't get away from it. I decided it works much better when we are freeway driving than canyon driving- all those twist and turns and elevation changes made it really hard for me to concentrate on his notes today.....

We had our picnic at the Garden City Playground. They really have the most unusual playground equipment there. It also looks a little dangerous but the girls really had a lot of fun. I think that the playgrounds they build now days are a little too safe sometimes but......
Here are all my children on the hangey-twirly-nater-thingy - yes it was Cams favorite too.

We called this the spiders web. Both of my girls climbed up to the top! When Bear got up there she goes "I the King"

Here we are skipping rocks at the lake.

We really love Bear Lake. It is so beautiful. I hope someday we will be able to afford a Cabin or something up there. Today was a lot of fun. It was relaxed and we felt adventurous. We need to do more outing like this. The best part was when we ran out of rocks and started throwing mud balls into the lake. You will never guess which one of my "kids" came up with that idea.....
Look two posts in one day- Yeah Me!


In spite of the cold weather we had a really fun Easter this year. Once again we spent Easter with Cams parents. I don't think we have ever celebrated Easter at our own house. It was also conference weekend so it was nice not feeling guilty about missing our own ward.
Here are a few snapshots of Easter.Our bunny cakeReady for the egg huntLook what I foundTHIS is what Uncles are forThe loot!!Dyeing eggsGetting our baskets readyMiss BearMiss Banana
Seriously this is the best picture I could get. I took a gazillion pictures of them together in multiple locations and this is the only one that came out remotely normal. The out takes are cute but Ahhhh crazy mommy just wanted a nice picture where they were both smiling looking at the camera- there has got to be a secret to getting your kids to do that.
Take Care!!
