We always think it is fun having people guess when our babies will come. We are getting close enough that now is the time. Leave a comment with the date, the time and the weight of the new addition and we will see who comes closest!
The due date is early May and as for weight our other babies have all been between 8 lbs 14 oz and 9lbs 14 oz (but you never know).
We are getting very excited to meet him...he still doesn't have a name so if you have any great suggestions feel free to leave those as comments too!!!

Friday we were lucky enough to have Leah and her family in town. The kids had such a great time playing....sadly every camera battery that I found was dead. So there are very few photos to show for the fun.
Luckily I did get a pic. of Leah with Kan Jam showing off her first ever through the slot in the front win. She was pretty proud (as she should be, it doesn't happen very often).

There is a song in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers about Spring. When I wake up and the sun in shining I want to sing it! It feels like we made it, we survived the rainy weather (I know it's Washington, there will be more) but Spring still feels great. We have been busy mowing lawns and cleaning up after winter.
My Dad came up and took Garret for a little Kayak adventure. He loved it.
***The only sad thing lately is that our pregnant cat that we LOVE has gone missing. It's been a week since we have seen her and although we all wish so much that she would return we know she likely will not. She was such a good mouser, loved the kids but wasn't underfoot, and she was the kitten we spend so much time getting friendly. It's sad for us and sad helping the kids get over it. We love you Copper!

We always do March Madness Brackets as a family. Tyler and I help the kids pick out all of their teams. When we got to Titus we were a little lazy and said "do you want to pick the top teams or the bottom teams?", he said top. We circled all the top teams in each match up. We already know he won and it's not even over. The winner got to pick a book or a movie. He picked a Tom and Jerry. The kids laugh the entire time.
The day just kept up it's greatness. We got to watch General Conference (semi-annual meeting for the whole church, the Prophet and apostles speak- so awesome). We get to continue watching tomorrow. Great way to wrap up spring break.

This Spring break has started off with gorgeous weather. The kids spent most of the day outside. We even explored a beach we had not been to before. The kids never get tired of the beaches. They played and dug and got their shoes stuck in the mud and had to be dragged away from it at dinner time. They were happy muddy messes by the end. We asked them at dinner what their favorite part of the day was and they all said different things but they each picked something they had done outside. Hopefully the sun sticks around!

Friday night the kids had a "sleepover" in the basement. It was the spring break kick-off event. Adele picked The Sound of Music and they stayed up late watching it and finally fell asleep. Titus was so good about staying in his sleeping bag with the big kids...he slept so good that he had one of his first ever night time accidents- uh-oh!
