Spring Break

My spring break is over. The kids have theirs in 2 weeks. Lame. The past two years we went to Italy for spring break. The first year we stayed outside of Pisa. Last year we were in Rome. This year? This year we spent 2 nights in Carmel. It was beautiful all right, but not quite the same. I took the kids to the mission and it was beautiful and the day sunny.

The kids made mermaids in the sand at the beach. Along came a dog and it peed on one mermaid's face. Then a few minutes later another dog came and put his mark on her face too. Then we left.

better late than...

My sister and her family came to visit us over New Year's. We had a blast- our house was crazy crowded but super happy. She and her husband took our kids for a morning walk across the bridge and then we met them later. All my kids could be hers- hers could be mine. Emilia and Denny are twins and Leif and Hailey are twins, although Paris is catching up and may be a triplet in a year or two. My sister was laughing when we met because she was getting crazy looks and a few comments regarding her many children.

A few years ago in Provo all of us, except Rich, went out to dinner. Dennis looked like the big cheese- he got looks and even a comment about his nice looking family. Yuck. Sisters, not sister-wives.
