We had a great time in California with the Parker, Ryan and Kate. Beach, Beach, Disneyland, Beach, California Adventure, swimming, and picnic with the Zinkes and Wettengels. The kids were great and even Hepa behaved himself. Parker says that collecting sea shells was his favorite part of the beach. Ryan's favorite part was destroying the turtle that we built. I think Kate's favorite part was being glamour girl and then taking a nap on the beach. Kate's Disneyland favorite was "It's a Small World" and Minnie Mouse's House. Ryan and Parker both loved the Toon Town roller coaster. California Adventure favorites included the wild mouse roller coaster and Soaring over California. On our last day, we had a picnic with Rich, Janna and Kevin, and Blake and Dana and their kids. It was a great way to end our week of fun. The kids had a ball playing together as Rich organized impromptu games and races for them (who would have guessed?) Thanks kids for the fun week!

On our way back from the Derby, we made a quick stop at Jen's house - the Miller Farm. To sum it up - breath taking! We hung out with her family (mostly played with her fun nephews), got a tour of the antiques and treasures they had in their house (her dad owns an auction house), and ate way too much Sunday dinner - all the food was from the farm!

Neal & Hannah's Engagement Party: April 10th
Neal & Hannah were getting married in Utah and were not having a reception in DC. We all wanted to celebrate with them so Amanda & I threw them an engagement party.
Alexis' Bridal Shower
We had a picnic in our old Bishop's backyard. There was a 40% chance of rain but our prayers were answered and it was beautiful weather!!
Alexis' other bridesmaid is in culinary school. Although she was in Floriday, she wanted to contribute to the shower so she made these great cookies and cupcake toppers to go along with our letter & word theme. It definitely made everything look fantastic!!

Then we celebrated again when Hepa was in town.
The boys enjoyed the music as well as the food at the Mexican restaurant. Garrett was inhaling the salsa.
