A couple of weeks ago, I arrived home to see a pinata hanging in our closet. Lance had gotten it, thinking Easter was the week before it was. We kept it concealed for a long time, then decided to invite one of Skye's friends over for some fun. We didn't have a bat so we had to sort of improvise with other things.

The girls gave it their best shot, but Lance finally had to give it some good whacks to get the candy to fall out. It was a lot of fun.

Here's Skye in her Easter dress. She picked it out herself. I was shopping for shirts at the Children's Place when she suddenly held this dress up to me. I told her I didn't want to get an Easter dress back and put it back on the rack. I went back to looking for other things only to have her bring it back to me. Since she seemed to want it that much, I got it. And I'm glad I did because she looked very beautiful in it!

The Ponds

Any time we drove past Ponds Park on the freeway, we'd notice a lot of pelicans flying or swimming around, so we finally decided to go check them out. Of course, first I had to get a picture of this!
We were hoping to see a bunch of pelicans, but unfortunately there was only one! But we still got some cool pictures of it.

Skye had a performance today at a park in Bountiful.  It was pretty chilly, but it's always fun to see her perform.  She's come a long ways since Christmas!

Winter Zoo Adventures

Back in January, there was one of those days that felt like spring so we headed to the zoo. Unfortunately, the nice weather didn't last. It ended up snowing on us, but it was fun seeing the animals in the snow. They were pretty active. You can't see it that good, but this elephant was throwing mud on its back! Just a good picture!

Skye had fun in the snow.
I was just glad they had free hot chocolate for us!

The tigers were seriously trying to catch snow on their tongues, too!

Riding a tiger!
We probably had the most fun watching the tigers play!

We also had fun watching Zuri, the baby elephant, in the snow!

Princess Skye and Rocker Daddy

I'm so behind on blogging. And we're going to San Diego in less than two weeks so I have some major catching up to do. I'll try and get as much on here as I can before we go! Last week, Skye went to a princess birthday party. All she had on when I dropped her off was a princess dress. When I picked her up she had this beautiful crown (decorated by Skye herself) and blue, glittery makeup on! You can't see it very good in the pictures, but she look very pretty--very much like a little princess!

Of course, I always think she looks like a little princess!
And then there's rocker Daddy! He wanted me to take pictures of him rocking out on his guitar before church started this last Sunday--in his suit and all! I love it when he plays his guitar!

The Tulip Festival

On Saturday, we headed to Thanksgiving Point for the Tulip Festival.
 As usual, we went crazy taking pictures of flowers like all these colorful pansies.

 And then there were the tulips!

 When we got inside the gates, there actually weren't many tulips in bloom yet because it's still too cold, but we did see a ton of daffodils!

 And there were a few beautiful tulips!

 Skye liked the flowers, but probably liked rolling down this hill even more!

 And of course, Lance had to get in on the fun, too!
