Spring? Break

Well, for spring break this year we had to just stay in SV (work/school commitments). So we decided to make it a fun "stay"-cation.

We started out with the kids getting the tramp set up. They had to dig snow out for the legs to get down to the ground. Whenever they jump, they end up about frozen but they love it!

Here's a little clip of them jumping on the tramp. Notice that they have to wear socks and mittens to keep from freezing! Brrrrr.....

On Tuesday we went snow camping with the family. Russ's scouts had built snow caves and slept in them and so we took advantage of that and went up to camp in them too. It was pretty cold but the kids did great!

On the way up. The little boys are so excited!

Russ inspecting the caves to make sure they'll work.

Joshua is excited to climb in!

A.J. was such a trooper!


Betsy always makes things fun!

Warming up in the car before dinner.

A.J. roasting some marshmallows. He thought it was pretty fun. On the edge of the fire pit you can see about how deep the snow is in SV still.

At this point, my camera ran out of battery and so I didn't get any other pics. Oh well.

We went home the next day and spent the rest of that day washing and drying camping gear! The other events for our spring break were a trip to Idaho for a visit to Sarah and Hyrum and a temple trip. It was great!

All in all, we had a great spring break even if there wasn't much "spring" in it!
