Magic Mountain

We went to Magic Mountain in the beginning of April. It was so much fun for Matthew to meet all the superheroes there and go on the rides.

Thanks Heidi and Jeff for letting us crash at your house for the night on Friday before we went, wish you could have come with!!

Maybe then Heidi wouldn't be crippled and hobblingon crutches! Well, that's what happens when you choose work over fun. :) Your paint job looks tops by the way.

As Requested

As requested Mrs. Toomer, here are some more pictures of the family from easter....aren't they all so adorable. I have also decided that I will be sending emails periodically to let everyone know we have updated the blog. I am so glad that I found this, what a great way for all the
family to keep up, by the way Ben, I need a new link to your blog so I can see it too!! The next
round of pictures will be from Magic Mountain, Andrew has become somewhat of a whiz at Photoshop so he is going to tweak some of our photos to take out the glare and things like that. Hope you are all doing well, don't feel shy about leaving comments on the blog either, I would love to read what you have to say, and if you want to, feel free to take the pictures off the websites so you can have some copies of your own(especially the WA and ID family!!).

This little guy is the highlight of our family. He makes us laugh and makes us so frustrated we pull our hair out. Thank goodness he is more like his dad than his mom or we would have a lot of trouble on our hands. We are so lucky to have Matthew in our lives, and all the rest of our family too.

Wow, Amy Nielson was right, this is actually somewhat addictive!! HAHA, where has the last hour gone? Just one last thing. We have a picture of our awesome sister and her husband and their children. Heidi and Jeff are always so much fun, and Matthew just loves to hang around Madison and Spencer and will talk about them for days after we visit.

Monterey Bay Aquarium

Here are some other pictures of our family through the past year or so. first we have the Monterey Bay Aquarium pictures where Matthew and his Daddy went last summer. They had so much fun! Andrew has become very proficient in his picture-taking skills and amazes me every time he takes a picture. I thought when I saw the blue fish picture that it was downloaded from the internet!!

***Family Vacations***

This February the three of us Flew to Las Vegas and had such a fun time! We walked what felt like miles and miles(my feet are still recovering), and saw so many cool things. Matthew's favorite things were; 1. The games 2. The rides 3. The hotels 4. When we saw the flamingos and the lions 5. The JOUSTING parts when the guys jousted off their this....mmmm rrrrrr grrrrrrr(and some kicking and sword fighting). The first night we stayed we were all pretty beat so we went to bed without seeing too much, but the next day we went to the game area in the Excalibur where we stayed and played games and won tons of toys. We also saw "Tournament of Kings", which was very exciting. The buffet at the Paris was delicious and the live entertainment at the Venetian was one of my favorite parts of our whole trip! We also saw the M&M factory, where we saw so many colors of M&M's that we couldn't decide which ones we wanted to eat first. Even cooler was upstairs the M&M's car.

The first family blog

This my first time blogging so please bear with me! I suppose I ought to start by telling everyone a little bit about our family. There are three of us and a fish(Pogo). Our little guy just turned four in the beginning of February, how exciting!! Andrew is working and finishing his school up online while I have been working and Matthew going to school. We moved recently and we just LOVE our new ward!! It's also a plus that we get to be right down the street from the temple! As of right now, I have no family photos on the computer, so WOW, we have lots of work to do and lots of pictures to take. Things have been fairly quiet for us otherwise lately. Since I am limited on the amount of pictures I have, I would like to invite each member of our family to email us some pictures so that we can put them on our blog.
