Lincoln's New Big, Big Boy Bed

This past weekend we made the abrupt decision to get Lincoln a twin size bed.
This mainly stemmed from getting a free mattress from our friends who were moving.

So out with the old toddler bed....



And in with a new "big, big boy" bed.

Of course Lincoln had to help Dad put it together.  Such a good little helper.


And after shopping for some new bedding it was all done!


He seems to really like his bigger bed.  It's not too much higher than his last one, so that is great!


Sweet dreams kiddo!

Taking Walks

Now that the weather is starting to warm up and the daylight is sticking around longer after work, we have started going on little walks as a family.

Lincoln loves getting out to run and walk.

Sometimes it's hard to keep up with all that energy!




What a cute little stinker!  And so much attitude!



Nintendo Switch and The Legend of Zelda: BOTW

Recently we were able to acquire the new Nintendo Switch console.
These things have been very hard to come by.  I guess I should have been less fiscally responsible and pre-ordered it.

The main reason for me to get the new Switch was for the latest Legend of Zelda Game, Breath of the Wild.



Well, I started playing the thing and it is a GREAT game!  And it is a HUGE game.


It is so pretty and fun to play.  It is kind of my new obsession.


Now I'll never get anything productive done....

Utah Jazz Playoff Game

This year the Utah Jazz made it into the Playoffs!

Since we share season tickets with some other, we had the opportunity to attend one of the home games.  I had never been to a Playoff game before, so I was excited to be there.


All I can say is that was one loud and crazy arena!



The Utah Jazz were playing the L.A. Clippers in round one.




And the Jazz won!  What a fabulous night!


GO JAZZ, GO JAZZ, GO!

Easter Morning

This past weekend was Easter and the Easter Bunny visited our house!

He left Lincoln some cool things right off the bat.



The rest Lincoln had to find.  That tricky Easter Bunny hid them!


At first, Lincoln didn't quite understand what was happening.  He was still a little sleepy, so it took a few minutes for him to realize there were things hidden around for him to find.  But once he caught on he was all over it!









Lincoln had quite the haul!  Look at all of that good stuff!


What a spoiled little boy.


HAPPY EASTER!!

Dying Easter Eggs

Last Saturday night we got together to dye Easter Eggs.

I love this little Easter tradition, even if it makes a mess.
And it was even better this year to have Lincoln really involved in the process.











Lincoln was so proud of all of his creations.




We had lots of fun decorating our eggs for the year!

A Visit with Allison

On Friday Linkie and I went to dinner with my good friend Allison.

Allison was here visiting from California.
It was so good to see her and chat for a while.  And Link had a good time with her too!



Miss you Allison!

Making Easter Cookies

Since Easter is next weekend, I decided to make some Easter Egg sugar cookies.

Of course I had a great little helper!




Yummy!

Alton Brown Live! Eat Your Science

Last Friday night Andy and I headed up to SLC to see Alton Brown Live! again.
We saw him last time he came through with his show, and we loved it.
So, of course we wanted to go to this new show.

The show was at Abravanel Hall and we had much better seats than last time.




The show was a great mix of comedy, music, and food science.

Andy's VERY favorite part of the whole show was the popcorn segment.





We had a blast acting like adults and going out for an evening.  It was so fun!
