April 2022 - Tad's Sonic party

Marmie and Grandpa came out in early April for Spring Break and Kyle was incredibly grateful to have his Dad here to help on the outbuilding all week.  They rebuilt the stairs to the second floor and laid the entire subfloor, which is ironic because his Dad helped us rebuild the stairs in our Lehi house when we moved in, too.  

We got together with the Swingle clan the week before so we had a quiet Easter at home with our family and Todd and Melissa.  We had fun making bunny pancakes for breakfast.   

Tad wanted to wait to have his birthday party until April so he could see Sonic 2 with his friends.  He has been planning it for months and was so excited.  He has also been super intense about practicing monkey bars at every park we go to and now he's a pro.  

Kyle and Todd flew to Ohio for Karl's wedding.  I worked from home a couple of days and tried to keep the little kids alive during meetings and conference calls. 

I also got to teach Tyler about world domination :).  I laughed at what he called some of the different territories:

Siam = Simom

Mongolia = Mongwella

Ontario = October

Northwest Territory = Noah Webster

The kids are getting into a rhythm with Dean and Lily and having fun playing together every day.

They even put on a Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe play and made up a choreographed dance together. 

Quote of the Month:
Mom: Tad, don't run in the parking lot.  You could get hit by a car.
Liam: If you get hit by a car you will die and then we'll have to buy a new Tad.

June 2022 - Lake Michigan

We started the month at Snowbird watching movies and swimming in the mountains.  We also swam at the Wilsons on Memorial Day. We spent Father's Day driving 13 hours to Lincoln, Nebraska but we couldn't miss out on our annual DAD pictures.  These kids sure love their Dad and I'm so grateful he's my partner in crime.   Alexa and Tyler had their last violin recital with their teacher, Brooklyn.  They are switching back to their old teacher now that she's home from her mission.  Their recital was western themed and they played one duet together, and then each played in two other group songs.   Alexa planned her birthday party at the neighborhood park.  We did carnival games like 3-legged races, potato sack races, etc. and had a water balloon fight and BBQ lunch.  We made a lemon birthday cake and she decorated it all by herself.  The neighbor boys rode back from the party in the back of Kyle's truck. She has been hanging out with Kalle any chance she gets.   Kyle an

March 2023 - Tad the race car driver and Alexa the zebra

Tad turned 7 and we took him and his best friend Jimmy go kart racing for his birthday. Jimmy to Tad: When we grow up we should be racers!! Tad: Yeah, and it's good that we already know how to drive for when we grow up and have our own cars.  He got a fun sea animal painting kit from Grandma and Grandpa, a lego puzzle, and a set of Sonic puzzles.  We also got him a voice changing megaphone which he loves.   Alexa had a really fun Medieval Feast at her school after they finished studying the dark ages.  All of the kids got really into it and a lot of them made their own costumes, including Griffin.   Audrey hit the 3-month mark and suddenly refused to take a bottle.  She went 4 weeks hardly eating during the day so she went from sleeping through the night to waking up every 2-3 hours to nurse at night.  We met with her pediatrician and she was still nice and healthy in the 75th percentile for weight so we moved her out of o
