It's Official: We've Got Ourselves A Walker

Red Rock

Saturday we went hiking at Red Rock as part of Ben's Phi Alpha Theta(read History Honor Society!)activity, we got there a little late after leaving significantly early (long story) and Ben hadn't emailed anyone to let them know we were coming so they didn't wait, luckily Professor Holland(In answer to any questions : yes , his son) showed up with his three kids and we embarked on the following journey!
Some parts were a little scary for a mother, but we survived yea!

Helping Daddy with School Work

Saturday we went to the Clark County Museum and The Boulder Dam Museum to help Ben with his 451 Research Paper. It was fun and besides gas, fairly inexpensive. For both museums we payed $7, kids under 3 are free!! While not to horribly exciting, it was interesting. I have included a few photos just for fun.
Kinda makes you grateful for modern appliances!!!

The Easter Bunny!!!!

Let's start by saying that Hannah has quite the active imagination. She must get that from Ben because I am a bit of a realist. The other thing she gets from Ben is an interest in Star Wars and other such fictional things. Ben reads Hannah 2 books before she goes to bed each night, one of her choosing and then her bedtime book, which Ben now has memorized! Well the book she chose to have read to her last night was none other than Star Wars (they are a very condensed children's version that Ben just had to buy, before she was even born if I remember correctly) And then today we are getting ready to let her watch a movie and I ask which movie she would like to watch she promptly responds.. drum roll please... Star Wars. I asked her to pick another movie since Daddy wouldn't be watching it with her. So a few hours go by and I am working on a project at the table, Hannah is right by me but I am not paying attention, neither is Ben because he is doing some research for his paper on the computer. Then I hear her say "uh oh my robot ear fell down." I look up to see her version of Robot ears, it appears she has been in our bathroom again. Shortly after the picture is taken she tries to give sister Robot ears(we stopped her of course) and then the Robot ears realize their final destiny, the trash.

Mama's make up

okay so I don't know if you can tell but she is definitely wearing my make up (self applied)
This was the first time she got into my make-up yesterday I didn't have the sense of humor or energy to take pictures the second time around. I suppose it is my fault for leaving our bedroom door open but it really doesn't make it any less frustrating!

Are You an Eight Cow Women?

Or in other words are you the women of whom you dream? (Pres Hinckley
How Can I Become the Woman of Whom I Dream? Ensign > May 2001)
These pictures are from our Enrichment night last night.
We watched Johnny Lingo and had two speakers, one entitled
Holy Cow (on spirituality) and the other entitled
Mad Cow (mostly about dealing with stress)
So what ARE you doing to become an 8 cow women?

You might not be able to see it but the cow on the left is crying over spilt milk (to the right of her hoof!) Any of you that have pumped breast milk might be able to sympathize with her LOL!!!
A great group of ladies
