Max had to do a project for school about what he wants to be when he grows up. He decided on a pilot. This is his finished project:

While lying in bed the other night he said to Jon, with a big sigh, "I really want to be a Jedi when I grow up, but I already signed up to be a pilot."

The cutest thing in the world?

Yesterday at breakfast Max asked me, "Mom, do you know what the cutest thing in the world is?"

Before I could answer, Ian said excitedly, "me!!!"

Max looked at him like he just fell off the turnip truck and turned back to me, "Ewoks."

I beg to differ.

We so glad when Grandma comes!

We were so lucky to have a special visitor at our house this Spring Break. Grandma Bonnie flew to Portland to experience what a week of no school and constant rain is really like. She was probably so sad to leave!

Day one we went to see Alvin and the Chipmunks, "Chipwrecked." Grandma is such a great sport and laughed as hard as the kids at the singing, dancing rodents. Afterwards we went to the Bob's Red Mill store and had a yummy lunch!

Later that afternoon, we braved the elements to stand in line for the Wicked lottery. It was not our lucky day (it's never my lucky day when it comes to drawings, gambling, lotteries), but, since Wicked was not sold out, they offered us tickets for just $43 each! Score! So, my mom and I got to go on a fun date. And, we had awesome seats, 15th row, orchestra level. It was my third time seeing Wicked, and I swear it gets better each time! It was so fun to experience it with my mom, and watch how much she enjoyed it. Sorry about the picture. I took it of us, with my phone, so we are squeezing in.

Friday, we headed to Southeast and ate at the Waffle Window. The actual window was closed because of weather, so it ended up being just a waffle brunch, but we got to all try some yummy waffles!

Then, we headed to a super fun play structure for more indoor fun and to work off our waffles!

Saturday we went to....

Donut land, where else?

Then we went swimming. No photos of that, but it was fun. Grandma was a good sport and took both boys down the slide.

Sunday was General Conference, so we just hung out at home. We made Swedish Pancakes, homemade soft pretzels, and had a nice Sunday dinner together. In between all of that, Grandma played lots of board games with the kids. Again, she is such a great sport! Here she is playing Pretty, Pretty Princess with Ian.

Sadly, we had to take her to the airport on Monday, just as the clouds parted and the sun came out. We always love it when she comes to visit. She is such a joy to have! We miss you already, Grandma Bonnie! Please come back soon!
