What we have been up to!

This post is probably more for me than anything. I said when I started this blog that it would be my journal/scrapbook and I have been doing a terrible job. With that in mind I have a lot to catch up on.

I will start with Spring Break. We had a lot of fun. Ryan had the entire week off and we got to spend a lot of time with family and friends. We took the boys to the Pima Air Museum and they loved it. Jackson was a little upset because he could not get on all of the airplanes.

Here is Ryan and the boys on Pres. Kennedy's Air Force One.

This one is for you Papa, he loves the Blue Angels.

Later that week we went to the valley for Brendon's baptism and Gavin's baby blessing. We dropped in on the Welker's and the boys had a good swim. Can you believe it, swimming in March. They had a blast - Thanks Welkers! We also had a blast hanging with the Finch's who were so kind to let us stay with them. It is so weird not having anywhere to stay when we come down. Thank goodness for amazing friends who can put up with our clan. I didn't get any pictures, but we had a blast with all our cousins too at the baptism and blessing. Love you guys!

Then a few weeks later we had the unfortunate experience of having Porter air-evaced to Tucson. Here are some pictures from our stay there. The first day he was not a happy camper. I think he was sick of being poked and prodded. He just laid there and watched cartoons.

He was much happier after having a bath and something to eat.

It has been a crazy couple of months, but we are all now healthy and happy. We are loving Thatcher. The boys just got signed up for T-ball and coach pitch. Jackson cannot wait to get started. He asks everyday. He has carried his new mit with him everywhere. We are looking forward to a fun Easter weekend. Hope you all have a good one too!

It was good to see all of the pictures. I am glad things are better and you are all doing well. Playing sports in a small town sounds like so much fun. Brings me back to my childhood.

I'm so glad things are getting back to normal for you and your family and that you got to relax a bit and enjoy Spring Break with your boys. It's fun to see all the pictures!

I am so glad things are better. What a blessing that you guys caught it. Is his cardiologist Dr. Carlo Macias? He used to be the doctor that would travel to Safford and he is based in Tucson. That is Gunner's and we love him. Congrats on another boy, that is so exciting. I hope you guys are doing good. It is so nice to see all your kids and how big they are getting. I am very new at this blog thing, my sister is trying to help my with it. I had to call her for my password so I could comment. It is pretty bad. I will get there. I hope all is well. Val
