Our Visit to Bryce's new house and Danica's Visit

Wednesday, April 11, 2007

We spent the weekend at Bryce's and had a ball. Don flew in from LA, Danica and Dave drove down from Idaho, Grandma & Grandpa Hogan came down, and even Aunt Leslie dropped by for a few minutes. We all hung around Bryce's new house and really enjoyed the grandkids and the space. Marcinia and Bryce had painted the white walls some beautiful greens and browns and yellows and then Marcinia decoraged. What a great house!

I got to go running with Marine Don by the lake in the morning with all the sparkling snow on Mt Timp and the sounds of birds in trees in the marsh. We went to an Easter Egg hunt with Sam. Of course Mark had to help him out with running around and getting as much chocolate candy as we could. Then we went to Cabelo's. It is a huge gigantic Sporting Goods store. They have this huge walk through fish tank with bass, trout, perch, walleye, well you get the picture. And Dozens of mounted North American and African animals. They even had this lion attacking a gazelle and Sammy went crazy. Lunch at Panda for Dave's benefit. At Bryce's we went to the lake and fed the ducks and the weather was perfect. Big dinner for Easter in the evenin, Grandma and Grandpa Hogan came down from Ogden. It was a full day.

It’s really fun having Danica here. We are hitting the garage sales with baby stuff. Oh joy.! Found girl stuff but don't know the sex of Danica's #2 yet. We went downtown to try to go to see the play wicked today but it wasn't playing so we did lunch bought her new tennis shoes and 2 maternity tops and ordered Empire Builders online. Then she was tired. I wish I could see her once a week. Danica is so logical and so down to earth and Christ-centered. Yesterday Mark was sick with a bad cold/flu so Danica trimmed, Dave mowed and I carried the baby on my neck and fertilized. We were quite the landscape team. I got Jensen up this morning and we played with all the interesting items in my office and had eggs and toast together. Jensen is always moving and exploring but when he does hold still and looks at you with those big blue eyes from that soft face of white, white skin your heart melts. I can always count on him when I lay on the floor put him up on my extended legs like an airplane to drool right down into my face.
