New Shades

we rode the light rail all the way down to the mall the night before and picked up some sweet new shades, Cohen wanted to wear them to school the next day so I snapped a few pics to send to Sam
 one serious
and one cheesy smile

riding the LIGHT RAIL!

Sam was out of town for work so for a fun night Cohen and I rode the light rail. He thought it was amazing. The college girls sitting next to us were cracking up at how excited he got and how exciting it was so see another light rail passing your light rail.

On the way home the REAL train was right next to our light rail and we got to sit and watch it at the station for a bit.

Easter Pics

So...I may or may not have the habit of dressing Cohen up in silly Easter stuff to take cute pictures...
 Easter 2010
Easter 2012
Easter 2011
 and now, Easter 2012

I figure I will get away with it as long as I possibly can!

mom and Cohen date night

if you ask Cohen what he wants to do for date night if it is with mom he says go get frozen yogurt, if it is boy's night out he says go get pizza, so what it really comed down to is that our child associates date nights and boy's night out with food...
 and he may be right because it is not too hard to convince mom to get frozen yogurt, just like it is not hard to convince dad to get pizza
and when getting frozen yogurt at one of the yogurt shops you usually need to go to the "cat store" as well (which is Petsmart) to see the cats and say hi to all of them...oh the little things in life, if only these little things could make us all this happy...wait a minute...frozen yogurt DOES make me this happy!

Easter Decorating

This year we decided to hang some eggs in our bushes, Cohen had a blast decorating them and deciding which bushes needed more. There were definitely a few that were slightly more loaded down, but they looked great.

and for my decorating I made this centerpiece that was a combo of two different ones I saw on good old Pinterest

Zoo Day

We had a great day at the zoo. Train is still not working so we took on the carousel instead.

 The fun part of this zoo visit was watching the hippo get his snack..
which he ate right in front of us!

Cohen and I took to the trails and went for an adventure by our house.

 I felt like I was in the middle of a Poohsticks race!
 Cohen probably threw over 50 sticks and was just as excited each and EVERY time!

Family Date Night

Cohen had a really good day at school so we decided to go out for a family date night.
 here he is enjoying his mac and cheese
 and working on his name (which requires you putting your face really close to the paper) he has down C-O-H- then goes astray from there when he spells outloud
and apparently he's picking up the check, BONUS!

St. Patty's Celebration

We celebrated St. Patty's Day the day after with all of the kiddos.
 Cohen was not feeling great (come to find out the poor little guy had double ear infections!)
We had all kinds of green foods (apples, grapes, applesauce, and green gatorade) Griffin is enjoying his applesauce
 so is Isaac
 and Eli
 and Grace is taking down some grapes
 we celebrated the big 3-0 again with Sparrow

 and then attempted the standard child holiday picture
 here are a few videos of the process

which is often like herding cats!
and also explains why these 3 are the best pictures we got 

we love that the tie is as big as levi is!

Happy 5th birthday Lincoln

Our friend Lincoln turned 5. Cohen was not feeling well but did not want to miss the party. He did a gymnastics party that was very fun.
 then it was time for cake
 so cute to see Cohen amongst the other little party goers
 cake time

 Cohen got a red balloon that he thought was great, and I thought made for some great photos.
