January & February 2012

 We must have had a pretty boring January, because I only took 3 pictures!  We had a great time in Las Vegas for Jackson and Hayden's soccer tournament over Martin Luther King Day weekend.  This picture above was taken in the car on the way down.  The kids fight over who gets to hold Milo in the car.  Carter wanted me to hurry and take a picture, since Milo actually looked happy to be with him.  It is actually pretty sad--Milo can't stand Carter.  I felt bad for Carter at first, but he tortures Milo.  There is good reason for Milo to not like him.   We stayed with Jeff and Hillary in Vegas, and Hillary was a great good luck charm at the games.  They always win when she is there:)
 We couldn't resist taking a few pictures of Milo during this bath.
 My parents came to town for a family history conference, and then they stayed with our kids when we went to Hawaii.  We took Jon and Chris to the new bbq place by our house.  Jackson and Hayden are in love with Ribs!!!


 Once again--now on our ride to St. George for another soccer tournament--Carter wanted a picture with Milo.  This time Milo was a neck pillow for him.

 This soccer tournament was over President's day weeekend in St. George.  We stayed in the house that Eric's company has ownership in.  Their clubhouse has an indoor/outdoor pool, so the kids got to go swimming between games.  Jackson's friend Caleb stayed with us for the weekend, too.  Unfortunately, the u-13 games were held in Mesquite.  It made for confusion since it is a 30 min drive, but 2 states away and a different time zone.


 After our last game on Saturday night we headed to Las Vegas to stay with Hillary and Jeff, since we didn't have any games until Monday morning.  It is only a little over an hour away from Mesquite.  We went to a show in Caesar's Palace with Jeff, Hillary, Mike and Beth.  It was the Matt Goss band.  It was really entertaining--and much cheaper than the big time shows down there.   I obviously didn't get a very good picture!
 When Eric and I were in Hawaii, I think Olivia missed us the most.  She would face time us a bunch from her ipod and text from her ipod, too.  She often sent a little picture of herself with the texts.  This is one of them.
Lastly, a little doggie abuse by my kids--and I guess me since I took the video.
