Oh! The Adventures We've Had!

A lot has been going on since the last post!! (I would only hope, since it HAS been a month!!) Any way.. Just a quick re-cap on life.
Easter was a lot of fun! We spent it with my family in Idaho, well part of the fam! Only one brother could make it. We had a good time hangin out and the Easter Bunny brought us all kites! So we headed out to the field and gave them a whirl. Mine didn't fly so good, not enough wind :( It was fun to be around my niece Makell. She constantly makes me laugh! She was recovering from a black eye that she got playing at her grandparents house in Colorado. She was pretty proud of it though!

Makell likes to watch videos on Chase's phone... It makes him feel good!

We have been doing a lot of work around the house! Chase went to work and tore up our patio so we can put down some paver stones to expand it a little. It's not done yet, but that is because of the crappy weather we've been having. We have plans to do it after Mother's Day! I also talked him into building up my flower bed in the front! I love how it turned out! I'll post some more pics when the flowers in it start to bloom!

On a sunny Sunday morning we took our first hike of the season with our good friends Stevi and Clayton. We just went up the mountain side behind our house. We found a neat cave and got to climb up a cool stream made by the spring run-off. It was a lot of fun! Apparently there are some Indian ruins/drawings in some caves. We were trying to find them, but got severely side-tracked with our photos!

And last but not least.... May 1st, I participated in a small boutique in Brigham. My main goal there was to get my name out to get some Spa Parties going, but I thought I'd try my hand at selling some crafts. That part of it didn't go over so well!! I came home with some inventory. But I'm just considering it new decor for the upcoming holidays! So it's okay! It was a lot of fun just being there and I'm glad I gave it a shot!

A few crafts that were up for grabs

So that pretty much sums up our lives the past few weeks! We have some more adventures in store, so stay tuned!!
