Little Sahara

My brother Brandon and his wife Jen invited us to go to the sand dunes with them. We hadn't ever been there so we thought it would be fun to get away somewhere a little warmer! It was nice weather, super warm without a cloud in the sky. It was beautiful there and we will definitely want to go back soon! Our quads did ok there but Brandon's were super fun to drive as they are meant for the sand not the mountains like ours. It is the first trip I've been on with my brother since we were kids and it was so overdue! Little Brendan just adored his Uncle Brandon the whole time. We have been potty training him and Uncle Brandon taught him to pee outside in the sand. It was cute! We made tons new memories and laughed so hard we cried...especially because Brandon kept making fun of his cousin Cale's "skullet"!!! Unfortunately the night we got home I had to run Ben to the ER because he was in extreme pain. Turns out he passed his first kidney stone! Poor guy! We took him to the doctor and he said he needs to drink more water...which is what I have been telling him our entire marriage!

Carter and Conrad

Carter has had a couple of playdates with his friend Conrad. They both love Skylanders and electronics so they were meant to be best friends!! They are too cute!

Do you want to build a snowman?

  It snowed 10-12" in one day here! So we built a snowman of course!!! We have gone almost all Winter without a good snowstorm. Our Stake fasted for moisture and boy did it work! Everyone was excited! I love how peaceful it looks after new fallen snow. The dogs sure enjoyed it, especially Sage! When the kids got home from school they went sledding until they couldn't feel their fingers and then came in for hot cocoa and cookies.
