Wicked in Salt Lake

This year I got season tickets to the Broadway shows in Salt Lake, basically it was to be able to see Wicked. Well today was the day. Mark was suppose to come with me, but little did we know he would be working out of State. So I took my daughter, Kaycie, who has a passion for Broadway like me! She "LOVED" it! We both almost cried it was so good. I was just amazed by the story line and the actors were fabulous! We then went to dinner with my sister-in-law, Nicky, my mother-in-law and her sister to Market Street Grill, can I just say "Yummy"!!

Spring Break Part II: Today we went to the Hogle Zoo. All my kids had so much fun! It was perfect weather, so all the animals were out. Riley laughed hysterically at the little monkeys playing around. Kaycie loved the Camels! And Jake loved being there with his little brother, he was such a big helper! Thanks to the Dunkley's for going! We had a blast!!

Spring Break Part I: We headed to Salt Lake to see The Living Planet Aquarium. The kids had a blast! It doesn't take too long to go through, but it is well worth the drive. We probably spent an hour looking at the fish. The kids were able to touch a string ray, which was really fun!! Riley loved all the fish! We went with our good friends the Livingstons, Dunkley's and Sisk family.

I was lucky enough to be able to go on a scheduled field trip with Riley's class this past Monday. We went to the Dinosaur Museum at Thanksgiving Point. Riley loved it!! I loved spending time with him. On the way home, almost all the kids fell asleep on the bus, but not Riley! This kid has so much energy!!

April shower's bring May Flowers

Here we are in April already! How time flies!! Mark has been home for two weeks now. The kids and I have enjoyed him being home. We were able to go out with our good friends, Amy & John, on Saturday night and enjoy a good dinner and a hockey game. We have never been to a game before, so this was a whole new experience for both Mark and I. It was a blast!! I loved every minute of the game! I can't believe how much they fight! It was crazy, but in a fun sort of way!! I think all of us wish is wasn't the last game of the season!!

The kids are all doing well. Riley has a new habit of putting his underwear on backwards, so he can see the picture of Diego, Thomas the Tank Engine, Nemo or whatever is on the backside of his underwear. This causes a whole set of problems, for which I am trying to change this habit! See the results of wearing your underwar backwards below:

So the sad news comes now, Mark leaves us for 5 weeks starting Sunday. In my previous post, I stated he was going to Tulsa, which was wrong. He is actually going to Lawton, Oklahama, which is about an hour and 1/2 away from Oklahoma City. He will be working on a military base, so I am hoping he gets the yes "ma'am" thing down!

One more exciting bit of news to help me through the lonely 5 weeks, I have "WICKED" tickets!! Kaycie and I are headed out on the town to see "WICKED" on the 19th!! I am so excited!!

Happy Easter to you all....
