Celebration of Learning

Cedar Creek Elementary hosted an evening of celebration. Parents and children came to see various art work and projects from the students and to hear from the school's music department. Haylie's poster report was chosen to be on display. The students participated in a shark project and we chose the ugliest shark we could find. Hadn't even heard of a Goblin Shark. Wiki it.... its pretty nasty looking. Then Savannah participated on her violin with the Strings. We also were entertained with the band and choir. Treat time afterwards at Johnny Bruscos New York Style Pizza and Ice Cream Parlour.

Date Night

Mike had Daddy/Daughter Date Night yesterday. He took her to Borders Books to use the gift card she got for her birthday. Dinner at Fritz's which is a telephone call-in system and then a train brings your meal. Then they spent the rest of the time at PowerPlay Family Entertainment Center. I took Savannah on Mama/Daughter Date Night. She choose to get a pedicure. Dinner at Subway and then hot fudge sundaes at Baskin Robbins.

Family Bike Ride

Saturday was play day. We decided to take a family bike ride around our Lake Lenexa. It is across the highway from our home so we don't need to load the bikes up.

Easter

For some reason I didn't get pics of the girls on Easter or hunting for eggs or dinner. I was about to get dressed up on Conference Sunday when i can watch it from the comfort of my own home. So all we got was the activity on Saturday but on by a local christian church. They had inflatables, games indoor and out, an egg hunt for three different age groups, face painting, crafts, and free food!

Utah Trip

The month of March in Utah is not my idea of a vacation, but we decided we needed to grant Haylie the same benefits as we did for Savannah. We have been living in Kansas as both our girls have turned 8. So in order for our extended family to participate in their baptisms, we have made the trip to Utah. Even though Haylie turned 8 in February, we waited until they were off of school for a week for Spring Break in March and did it then. The first thing we did was drive to Logan. I wanted to show the girls my apartment and where I went. We had to go to the bookstore and get them some Aggie gear of course. Oh, and that great Aggie Ice Cream too. Is anyone out there a "true aggie?"

 
The next day we had to go down to Provo. So I showed the girls my dorm in Wells Hall and got some things at the bookstore there too.
 
This is the only picture I have of Haylie's baptism. She was so nervous and embarrased I thought we'd never get her into the water!
 
Among other things we did was go to the Discovery Gateway childrens museum, had a fun time with all the cousins, went swimming at the rec center, and ate at all our fav restaurants that we don't have here at home.

The weather wasn't too bad. It did snow and all we had were spring clothes, jackets, and sandals.

Randomness

Just some cute pics of Haylie around the Oak Park Mall in her baptsim dress.

Musically Inclined

Savannah participated in the Olathe Northwest Orchestra Festival at the high school. She wanted to try the violin this year at school and has liked it so far. They had groups from the district schools perform. We decided to get her picture also with our favorite sitter Sarah, who plays violin in the Prairie Trail Jr High Orchestra. Cute girls!

My baby has now reached the age of accountibility. How time flies. She wanted to have her party at our local skating rink: Skate City. We invited her 2nd grad class and about half showed up. A fun time was had by all.
