Easter

Easter was nice this year.  We did our usual Last Week of Christ’s Life celebrating – or at least we tried to.  We acted out some scenes from His life and watched some videos about it (love lds.org).  I wasn’t in much of a picture taking mood, I guess, since I didn’t take any!

We did our egg decorating.  The boys do such a fun job with it and we ended up with some really cool looking eggs.

We had to wait for everyone to wake up before coming downstairs.  Rusty chose Easter to sleep in, much to his brothers’ annoyance, but he finally got up and the boys were ready to find their baskets and the eggs!

Tommy asked if we could eat the Easter eggs for breakfast.  Of course, I said yes.  I just didn’t realize WHICH Easter eggs he meant until I saw his plate …

I didn’t take a picture of the boys all decked out for Easter because they looked pretty much like this …

Wasatch County

In fourth grade, the students here study Utah and its different counties.  As a culminating assignment, they are assigned a county and do a written and oral report about it.  Ricky was assigned Wasatch County.  To help him get into the assignment, we took a family field trip to Wasatch County in April.

We stopped at the county seat, which is Heber City, and did some looking around.  We found this old church and some other memorials on Main Street.

Lunch may have been the favorite stop of the day.  The Dairy Keen is train themed.  There is even a train track running around the ceiling of the restaurant with a working model train.  The boys adored the miniature Harry Potter scene that had been set up.  There was the wizard school, Hogwarts, and the nearby town and a train to take all the little wizards to the school.  They stood for a long time looking trying to pick out which figurine was Harry and which one was Ron.

The restaurant even has tables set up outside that are part of a toy train.  We’d eaten inside, but they thought this was pretty cool and want to eat outside next time we go.

We popped over and visited the Heber Valley Railroad as well.  We didn’t ride the train, we just watched it pull out and in and looked around the train station.

Next we headed over to Soldier Hollow which was the venue for the cross country skiing and biathlon events during the 2002 Olympics.  It is where I volunteered, so I told Ricky all I could remember about what happened and the set up for the Olympics.

Our last stop was a drive through Midway to the Homestead Crater.  This natural pool inside a crater was pretty cool.  You can make reservations and go swimming in the warm water, but we were just sight-seeing that day.  Here’s the crater …

Here’s inside the crater …

Here’s the boys looking down into the crater from up top …

And here’s the boys up on top looking at the view …

Ricky used a lot of pictures from our field trip and the knowledge he got to make a nice PowerPoint presentation for his oral report.  He put it together himself and wrote out what he’d say … and he got 100%.  Plus the teacher loved all his personal touches.

Proud of my boy!

Before the teeth …

Bobby got his two front top teeth a couple of weeks ago.  Before they broke through, I got this nice collection of …

THE FACES OF BOBBY!

Said Tommy,

“There’s nobody at the church right now.  Except the prophet.  The prophet’s car is in the red garage at our church.”

Names

While at Billy’s baseball game tonight, Ricky made friends with a group of kids playing on a grassy hill.

Afterward, we asked him about his new friends and he told us this and that about what they played.

Then we asked if he had learned any of their names.

Thinking hard, Ricky said, “Uhhhh.  There was one girl named … Saliva, I think.”

 

There you go.

Hee hee hee
