Kylie getting her butt kicked!

Here is a video of Kylie trying to ride the dog.  Appearantly the dog didn't like that and decided to get revenge on Kylie.  It is quite funny!

Damon has always been a very active kid and loves fighting characters/superheros.  So it was no surprise when he was glued to a karate performance we saw the other day.  We signed him up for some Karate classes and he's been working hard at it.  He earned his uniform this week and is so excited that it's hard to get him out of it!

We had a great Easter.  Alicia and I didn't want to get up, but Damon convinced us that we needed to.  He was so funny.  When he came into our room to wake us up, it was obvious that he had already been peeking around, since he already knew where the easter baskets were hidden.  They had a lot of fun finding the eggs.  They also had a lot of fun eating the candy.  It was a very nice day.

Trip to Elko, David's Baptism

We went to Elko, Nevada to visit my Uncle David.  He made the decision to be baptised, so we all made the trip out there to be there for it.  It was really good to see him make this desicion.  I am very happy for him.  I guess there were people in his ward that didn't realize that he wasn't a member because he had been going to church for so long.  He was baptized by his son Travis.  This was a great opportunity for him, being a priest.  They are already planning on going through the temple next year.  We will definately be there for that.  

The kids had a great time on the trip.  It was fun for all the cousins to be together.  They had a great time in the hotel together.  We are going to have to plan a family vacation where we can all spend time together like that.  It was a blast!  You can see in this video how much fun they had!

Karate Class

Damon has been bugging us for months to be able to do Karate.  I'm not sure if it really started before he saw Kung Fu Panda or not, but this kid is obsessed with it.  We went to the South Town Expo Center a while ago for a kids safety fair where Spiderman was appearing.  While waiting for Spiderman we saw some martial arts teacher was giving some demonstrations.  Damon and Kylie got to break boards.  We also got Damon a really inexpensive trial month.  We took Damon and Kylie to their first class just the other day.  Here is a video from that first class.  Kylie was cute but just tried to cling to her Damon.  She warmed up after a while.

Green Lawn

I have to brag a little!  Our lawn is doing awesome this year and we're hoping the sprinkler system works for us this year too!  I've already had to mow our lawn 3 times this year already.  It's been nice the past couple days to let the kids play in it, and not worry about them coming in muddy.

Curly Kylie!

After trying so many days to straighten Kylie's hair so it will fit into pony tails, I finally gave up and let her go curly.  I didn't realize how much curl she had till I scrunched the other day.  Sure makes her hair shorter, but very fun to style!

Easter Egg Hunt

We had a fun time during Conference Break where we went to the Jackman's for their Easter Egg hunt.  We did it a little early since the whole family will be in Nevada for a baptism there.  The kids were excited to not only get candy, but Money in a couple of their eggs!!  Damon got a whole $7.00 and Kylie $1.00 in change!  The kids had a great time playing with their cousins and enjoying all the treats.

Camera Broken

Our much loved camera decided to stop working.  It appears as if a small grain of sand got into it when we went to Florida.  That small grain of sand slowly worked its way into the gears that opens the lens.  Once in there, the lens no longer would function properly.  I did my best to see if I could get to it to clean it out, but it was buried too deep.  So in order for me to get to it the camera was taken apart beyond repair.  We hope to be able to get a new camera soon, but I think it might be a while before that happens.
