Spring is coming !

This was one day last week - as you can see, the snow is melting FAST !  Thatcher thought he'd try out the scooter on the dry patches. 
And give Lucky a belly rub - Lucky LOVES it, and practically rolls over whenever he sees Thatcher. 
A quick haircut/neck shave before a run.
Yup - he's started up running again, and Treyson and Tagg are going with him. 
Thatcher likes my phone camera...........
He loves to take selfies................
....and then he leaves it in selfie mode, and I'm totally startled as I go to take a picture, and there is by big face !!!
We were running out of hay for the goats, so Roger had to buy some from a guy in Layton.  He and Zac and the boys went down early last Saturday morning to pick it up, then they came back, and ......
Landon came up to help unload and restack.  He (Landon) tried to show Treyson the finer points of throwing they hay bales. 
Landon would throw them over the fence, and Zac and CJ would carry them in the barn, and Roger would stack. 
It was a family affair, and the boys helped where they could.   I made them stand for the requisite picture when they were done. 
Later in the day we went over to the Property.  I wanted to see how it had faired during the winter.  We walked down, and Tagg and Thatcher walked along on top of the snow.  It was still hard enough that they didn't break through. 
The creek was still frozen over, although not hard enough that you would want to walk on it.  
Near the edges there was a little water, and the boys had a fun time poking holes with sticks. 
On the way back to Grandpa and Grandma D's, they caught a ride on the Ranger with Zac, CJ and Grandpa D.  Me and Grandma D walked back up, getting our exercise ;)
More selfies..........
I got my Quilt Kit in the mail.
It may take me YEARS to complete.  If I do a block a month, it will take me 2 YEARS.
I'm pretty intimidated.  I can't even understand the instructions !?!?!?!
Saturday evening we watched Payson and Brightyn, and Krois and Harper.  We had breakfast for dinner.  Here they are stirring up the pancake batter. 
Cheese !!  Such cute kids.  They were so good !
The only sadness of the evening is when Grandpa Roger took away the spoon that Brightyn was trying to "eat" her chocolate milk with.   She wasn't happy - poor thing :)

Wow ! Alot happening with our grandkids this past week !

Cam went to Cali with her cousin Christine and family, to visit another cousin Anne and family.
It was so warm, and she has had a wonderful time.  I'm so happy that she could do this !

Payson and Brightyn and all of the Brooks cousins went with Grandma Carol and Grandpa Gary to see the Marvel Universe LIVE  in Salt Lake.  They dressed up, and had a great time.  Dinner at of course Mc Donald's and then a movie with popcorn and to top off a sleepover. Tons of fun!! 

Tagg has been building at the shop again.  He likes to hang out there with his dad.

Payson is tumbling every Monday, and is getting quite good at it.

This is a the Children's Treehouse Museum, where Kacey and the kids hang out quite a bit.  Notice the shoes (or lack thereof).  This is so funny !   Kacey said he is READY FOR SUMMER !!

Payson also got to go to the Dentist office for a field trip with his Preschool.  

Here are Hannah and Cam - headed to Cali !

Fun on the beach !!

Tagg had a birthday party at the bowling alley with his friends last Monday night.
Let's see if I can get the names right.......
Mason Williams,  Cooper Stuart,  Josh Demond, Tagg (in blue), Henry Rose (behind), and Trace Henderson

This is right after Preschool where they celebrated Thatcher's birthday

Both Thatcher and Tagg, along with their dad, were able to go up in a small plane, and fly over Morgan for a quick fun trip.  They had SO MUCH FUN !!  Thanks to Cousin Brandon Nelson !!

Made this boy's day for sure !!!

Treyson dressed up all spiffy on Friday for the Valentine's Dance.
