Video Of Caleb Riding On California Screamin'

(Link to the California Screamin' video is below)
I feel bad that I have not blogged about our Disneyland trip yet. We purchased a new video camera before our trip and I want to incorporate the videos into our blog. Unfortunately, I am unsure how to transfer the videos onto our computer. Scott has been too busy lately to help me figure it out so that is why I have not posted anything from our vacation. I surprisingly figured out how to get a video onto YouTube.

Before you watch the video, I need to tell you about our favorite ride California Screamin' first. We all enjoyed this ride so much. This is the first time that we all went on a "big" roller coaster ride together as a family. The kids were not interested this year in the Dumbo ride, Toon Town, the Tea Cups or seeing any of the characters. They mostly wanted to go on the bigger rides like the Tower of Terror and California Screamin'. I am not sure how many times we rode this roller coaster. LOTS! It is well worth it to us to pull the kids out of school for a week so we can be there without the crowds and the heat. We would ride California Screamin' and get right back on again and again.

Caleb wanted us to video him on the ride. Caution, this video has some bumps and turns so hopefully no one will get sick watching it. Scott tried his best to keep the camera on Caleb's face at all times but that too was a challenge. Caleb, of course, is being silly, acting like he is scared but believe me, he is still talking about the ride today. "When can we go back? I had so much fun!"

Easter Weekend

We had a wonderful Easter this year. We started celebrating Friday night coloring and decorating eggs. I am glad the kids still have fun doing this. Who knows - maybe next year they will be telling us that they are too old to dye Easter eggs.

On Saturday, we went over to our friends Kris & Steve's house for their yearly Hop Along Easter Brunch - lots of good food and fun! I will let Kris tell you about their event - you can read about it here. Since I did not have my camera, I am stealing a picture that Kris took of Lindsay & Caleb. Thanks for having us over for your fun yearly tradition.

Saturday night, the Easter Bunny came to our house. Yes, he was a little early but it worked out better for us that way. Since Scott has early morning meetings at church, we thought it would be better to find baskets the night before. The kids wanted a challenge in finding their baskets this year, but after about 15 minutes, they wanted us to give them clues to help find them. I did not take any pictures :(
On Sunday, after church, we went to Scott's grandmother's for Easter dinner and a family get together. We had lots of good food, fun and it was nice visiting with family. Since, again, I did not take any pictures, next week I will try and remember to have them dress up in their Easter clothes and take a picture before church. I can just pretend that it was Easter Sunday, right?!?!
We hope everyone had a wonderful Easter too!

A Beautiful, Spiritual And Enjoyable Sabbath Day

Today was such an enjoyable day. We slept in late, ate our favorite breakfast, then watched General Conference in our pajamas. What a joy it was to listen to President Monson and the other Church leaders! Later in the afternoon, we went to the park because it was so nice outside. The sun was shining, the rain took a day off, and the temperature was in the mid 70's. We took a picnic consisting of hot dogs, macaroni salad, fruit, chips and freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. Of course we couldn't forget to bring food for the ducks. Lindsay & Caleb enjoyed feeding them bread. What a beautiful, spiritual and enjoyable day. I love spending time with my family.
