Jazz Game!

On Friday I took my friend Orlynne to a Utah Jazz game with me.
It's always fun to try and mix up who you go to games with.
(Especially when Andy and I can't go together due to lack of a sitter for Link.)

I used to work with Orlynne at TestOut, and she has always been a big Utah Jazz fan, so I knew it would be a good time with her.


That night they had free glow-wand-thingys that they gave out to everyone.  We were to turn the arena blue for Autism Awareness.



It was a fun game to go to!  Glad I have some good friends I can take!

Here We Go....

It's time for this remodel thing to start!
We have talked about it for so long that it is exciting to actually be doing it!

Here are a few more before pictures:




First thing:  Appliances out!



Then it was demo time for the kitchen cabinets.

All gone!

Finally the back splash had to come down.  Lincoln was such a good helper.




It's crazy what you can get done in a weekend.  But the big changes will be coming over the next few weeks!
So exciting!

Let's Go Fly A Kite!

It was a beautiful day on Sunday and Lincoln really wanted to fly his new kite.
So we headed down to the park for some fun.


This year was such a big difference over last year.  Lincoln pretty much flew the kite the whole time by himself.  Such a big boy!



(Although sometimes he would start running the wrong direction making the kite come down.)




If you can't tell, his kite is an awesome Batman kite!



What a fun Spring day in the park!

More Snow!

We got more snow!

A LOT more snow!


We managed to get around 9" of new snow today.


Needless to say, Lincoln was pretty excited about all the new snow to go out and play in.




Since there was a decent amount, Andy and Link started to make a snowman.



But of course, Link didn't stick with the project for long.


He thought a snowball fight with Mom might be more fun...


Or cleaning the sidewalk with his own "snowblower".




But he made it back in time to do the important stuff, like add the arms and face.



Hooray for our snowman!


Who had a VERY short life.......


After all that tromping in the snow it was time for some Hot Chocolate!  I think Linkie likes it more for the marshmallows than anything....

Silly Fun

Sometimes when you have a little boy at home you have to get creative to keep them entertained.

I saw this idea on Pinterest and since Linkie is into Spider-man some right now I thought it would be fun.

Lincoln's own little "obstacle course":





He seemed to have fun doing it.
Especially when he got to run through and destroy it!
