March 17th

The kids celebrated St. Patrick's Day by wearing green and eating gold coins.

But more importantly for our family, Ryan celebrated his birthday.
He's 40-something. :)
I may or may not have put on a number bigger than his actual number of years.  :)
Love this guy!

The Sun will come out Tomorrow

Greeted by a beautiful sunrise just the other day.

Fairy tales and Feeding Ducks

While we were visiting, Abby planned some fun activities for us.
We went to the new movie "Cinderella" and it was great.
There is just something special about a fairy tale.  
All the girls loved it and Corbin said it was alright.

After the movie we headed to the park to feed the ducks and play at the skate park.
It was a bit windy (my dad says it's always windy in Idaho)
but the kids didn't mind a bit.  

They loved time with their cousins.
I loved time with my family!

Burning the field -- Things you learn on a "farm"

While we were in Idaho, my parents were also up for the weekend.  They have been in St. George for the winter (but came home for a funeral before going back for a few more weeks).  
During the winter, my dad's horse field had become a little overrun with weeds.  
He used his tractor to gather them up and then set them on fire.  Corbin thought it was the coolest thing ever.

From the deck:
There's a pretty good flame going
Up closer but lower so the fire isn't visible:

Selfie with only the smoke.  
A boy can learn a lot from visiting a "farm".

Little Lucy

Last weekend we headed to Rexburg to see Abby's new little baby Lucy.
The kids couldn't get enough of her.

Such a sweetheart!
