April in a Nutshell

School Project

Hunter's Curious cub project was due the week after Spring Break, he wrote his report on the solar system, and then painted a bunch of Styrofoam balls

And it turned into this:  

He did a great.  He loves learning about space,and he decided to hang up his poster up on his bedroom wall.  

Here is just a random picture I took of Quincy.  I just love his little face. 

Walter's Birthday

Walter's actual birthday was the first part of April.  We celebrated with a birthday breakfast and the opening of gifts.   

We got him a pirate ship, which he just loved.  

Later that day we had some family over for a birthday dinner (he chose homemade pizza), cake, and he opened more presents.   

Walter is a wonderful boy and we are so pleased to have him in our family.  

BYU Rugby

BYU rugby ended another great season (they won the National Championship).  Walter just loves going to their games.  He says that when he grows up he wants to be a rugby player.  

He loves the haka.  I've seen him several times in front of the mirror practicing and he has also taught the other neighborhood boys how to do it as well.  


April also brought the end of Spring Soccer.  Hunter still might not be the most aggressive player, but he has improved a ton since the the last season.  He was more focused, he kept trying and he got some awesome kicks in.  

Overall it was a wonderful season for Hunter.  

Walter has had a great season of soccer.  We still had to remind him a couple of times that there was no tackling in soccer, but he loved it.  He is a very determined little boy.  He had some great goals, and he also had a wonderful coach.  

So there you go-April in a nutshell.

Spring Break 2013

We decided to go to the ZOO! 
The boys loved it.  The boys both love looking at maps, so they picked up a map of the zoo and led us around.
First up was the baby elephant.  

Here's a picture of them looking at the map.

Quincy just enjoyed the ride.  

My favorite animal was the tiger.  

And of course we had to see the llama.  

Lunch time

Quincy may have gotten a bit tired of all the pictures.  

Later that day we went to the playground.  

We also hiked the Y, during spring break.  

And we also had enjoyed General Conference during Spring break.  The boys loved the conference board again.  

Sunday afternoon we also did apostle treat bags.  I had intended to actually make felt bags, but then I realized why not just use all the gift bags that I already have.  

I printed these dot to dot pages of the First Presidency for Quincy and he used his magnetic pom-poms.
