Finally an update!

We have been busy, busy, busy with life! I will try and make this short and to the point. Soon after Andy's birthday we were able to go to the open house for the Vancouver, British Columbia temple. I absolutely loved it. The colors were amazing. Crenna took some really good pictures of tulips and daffodils. By the way, all pics are from Crenna. We were able to see Melissa Call, Josh's cousin and my old roommate from college, as she lives up there. We saw a few sites and then headed back. We were excited to find a Sonic on the way home since we haven't been there since Arizona.
We had a nice Easter watching General Conference and having our neighbors the Bredensteiners over for a ham dinner. It was very yummy! The kids enjoyed coloring eggs the day before under the supervision of Crenna. Thanks, hon.
This weekend we were able to get away for a much needed getaway since Monday is our anniversary. We took the kids over to a timeshare in the Olympic Peninsula. The kids were excited to go on another ferry and I was just glad to have some r-e-l-a-x-a-t-i-o-n. I think everyone had a blast. We loved the place where we stayed and would love to go back. We drove to Forks so that I can say I have been. We also went out to La Push since we love the beach. The kids plus Josh really enjoyed it there, picking up rocks, shells, and starfish. We went through the mtns on the way back to our timeshare where we drove by a beautiul lake and in the only rain forest in the United States. It was really neat. On the way back on the ferry today we were able to see a pirate's ship in the bay. The kids thought that was really neat.
Now tommorrow is back to the grind. School is winding down. The kids will be getting out of school in June and it can't come any sooner. We look forward to our family vacation to Mexico and Utah this summer. We hope everyone has a wonderful cool summer.
