I can't wait for summer.

This last year I broke out my climbing gear and started climbing again, I found that my fat butt was not as good at climbing as I was about 6 years ago. The good thing that came out of getting back into climbing is that I actually came to the realization that I needed to get to a gym and lose some weight, and get into shape. I have been on a quest all winter to be able to climb like I did in the past, and maybe make some new goals like trying to run in a 5k and maybe something even bigger. So far I have been to the gym just about every weekday morning and my family has even gotten into the fun, Erica likes to take some fitness classes and the kids have liked going swimming and rock climbing on the indoor wall. Here is a fun video of Bailey climbing on the wall.

MARCH MADNESS!!!!!!!!!

Well here it is...March! It is normally a busy month for us as 2 of our girls have birthdays...but this March takes the cake! I have not blogged for a while because of the craziness and I always think it is fun to have pictures to throw on, but for now this will be a picture free blog because who knows how long it will take me to get around to that. So this month (March 15) our oldest daughter Hannah turns 8! I feel like I just had her and should still be in our old house hanging out with my girlfriends and their new babies. But now all my girlfriends are scattered all over and we all have kids turning 8. So then on March 28 Bailey turns 6. She is so funny, such a good kid. It just so happens that Hannah will be baptized on March 28 and the cute thing is the girls are so excited about that. So as if 2 birthdays and 1 baptism are not enough, Hannah brought home a paper last thursday that said she is the VIP at school this week. Cool I thought, until I realized what that entaled. So this weekend was spent getting stuff to fill the estimation jar for school, printing pics to make a poster for school, and filling out a paper to read to the class. Not bad until you throw in that we also went to the Salt Lake Temple Saturday to take pictures of Hannah for her announcements for the baptism. So now throw in that I am making invitations for the baptism and trying to figure out the easiest, and least expensive dinner to do for everyone. Hannah has also been doing a Flat Stanley project which is way fun to do, but it is due on Tuesday so that is just one more project to throw into my crazy month I have termed March Madness! But....there is a silver lining...next month the hubby and I get an "adult only" trip. Yeah!!! We have not had one since the kids were born....did I mention the oldest is almost 8? So he is whisking me away to Vegas for a long weekend and we are seeing the Cirque De Soleil show "Mystere." I am so excited. Oh, did I also mention I have my first camp clinic this month?
