Tuesday Dan stayed home sick from work with a bad cold. I went running since I could leave the girls home with him. In the afternoon while Anna was at preschool, Bethany watched "Leap," Dan did some work from home, Alice napped while I worked on teacher gifts and helped work on some of McKenna's diorama and student council poster. After school McKenna had dance, Ben practiced baseball with Dan, and we finished the diorama.
Wednesday I went walking with Rachael in the morning, then we went to Anna's preschool graduation program! We weren't sure if or how much Anna would participate given how shy she is about giving a talk or prayer in Primary, but she did awesome! She said her lines and sang all the songs! I loved how giggly and smiley she was during the songs that were silly and the lines that talked about underwear. :)
"Baby monkeys say a scritch screech scratch is the very best way to say Happy Mother's Day, Happy Father's Day."
Favorite thing to do at preschool? "Going down the slide too."
Because it was early out for Legacy, McKenna and Ben were able to come. Mickelle and Grandma came as well. We're so thankful for Ms. Paula and Ms. Tracy.
Mickelle came back to our house for a bit and Anna had fun trying on her jingly necklace. Bethany pretty much decided to give up naps and we decided it was ok since she was having a harder and harder time going to bed at night on days that she napped. However, after several days of no nap, it all caught up to her at dinner time. :) And here's McKenna's student council campaign poster!
Alice slept through the night that night!
Thursday Lizzie came over to play after lunch. We also finally had a tree service come and cut down about 8 dead trees in between our house and the Gunnerson's!! In this video of Bethany doing her "Leap" ballet moves, you can hear the chain saws outside and it distracted Bethany.
Thursday was also the Spring concert at LPA.
Ben- Sing a Song
Ben- Down By the Bay
Ben- Rubber Ducky
McKenna- Splish Splash, Try Everything, and Million Dreams (with SOLO at 5min 40sec!)
Their displayed artwork
We're so grateful Grandma and Grandpa and Mickelle could come.
Friday we went to ladies lunch and Korie Brown came to play. Then we went to the Bountiful chalk art festival in the evening.
Alice in "Webster-land." They really had fun! Don't mind the sad faces.
Some adorable coos from Alice.
The girls had a sleepover that night in McKenna and Bethany's room while Dan and Ben slept outside in a tent since, unfortunately, the stake Fathers and Sons camp out got cancelled due to forecasted bad weather in the Uintahs.
Saturday morning Dan and Ben went to a Fathers and Sons breakfast then to a make-up baseball game. They finished cutting down all the trees (the three obviously dead trees in the middle of this picture are now gone!). When Dan and Ben got home, I went with McKenna to help at the YW window washing fundraiser. We did some yard work in the afternoon. Later, I took McKenna and Ben to see cousins Emma and Reed in "Singin' in the Rain." They did so well! Then we swapped some kids and Dan took M, B and A to see a play that Charlie Alexander was in and I took the little two grocery shopping. It was a BUSY day!
Sunday Grandma was getting some good smiles from Alice. And Ben made Lego glasses.
We watched "Singin' in the Rain" after church. Dan went to Seminary graduation that night.
Monday was Anna's last day of gymnastics! I'm excited for the break and we'll have to see if she wants to return or try something new. When we got home I was messing around with the straightener on Bethany's hair. Made her look pretty different and grown up.
That evening we had to divide and conquer. Dan took Ben and Bethany to a baseball game of Ben's and I took the other girls to the Nelson Family party for May BDs.
Cute Alice and Ben snuggles before bed.
Dan and I started a new Netflix show (documentary) "Evil Genius."
