We have had a horrible winter this year. It has snowed at least once a week and it has been freezing. We just recently were able to see some grass in our front yard. It has been a long, long winter and we are really looking forward to Spring (if it ever comes). Nathan was determined to take the boys out at least once to go sledding. So, while I was in photography shoots, he bundled up the boys and took them over to the golf course. I joined up with them a little later and took some pictures. They had a blast!

|Last week, I had to go to the hospital because I was having pains. It ended up being nothing, but it was a long day!|
|Corey only really takes a nap now if he falls asleep in the car. So, we tend to drive around a lot around 2:00. This day he fell asleep reading a book.|
|Tate's preschool took a field trip to the Scerra Theater to see Rapunzel. Tate was sitting with his two friends, Nixon and Connor.|

This year's Valentine's Day was low key. We had just gotten back from our trip and had spent the previous week celebrating Nathan's birthday. Tate had a party at school and he insisted on bring mustache valentines.

We didn't get home until about 10:00 on Nathan's birthday, so we couldn't have much of a celebration. But, Tate was too excited to wait to give his dad the present he had picked out for him: an Angry Birds game. He was being so sweet and said we needed to put two bows on the present because he loves his daddy so much. I have never seen a kid so in love!
The next day, we had a real celebration for Nathan. We decorated the house, made his favorite dinner (lasagna), had cake and opened more presents. We sure love that birthday boy!
|Tate helped me make this Tshirt quilt with shirts from Nathan's mission, places we have traveled, some of his favorite things and the baby blanket from when Tate was born. |
|We stopped in Mesquite, NV along the way and stayed in a crappy casino hotel. But, the boys had fun jumping on the beds and exploring. It was also a little warmer and we could see the sky (unlike in Utah)!|
|We got to California Wednesday evening and hung out at the hotel. The next morning, we had some breakfast and were off to Disneyland.|
|We rode the bus every morning and the boys loved it.|
|We finally made it to Disneyland!!|
|Tate would have nothing to do with any of the characters. Corey was a little scared, but was fine as long as I was close.|
|Our first ride: Pirates of the Caribbean. The boys were a little freaked out and refused to ride it again. Not long after this, Corey had a major meltdown and I had to leave the park with him. He only last about 2 hours.|
|After long naps for everyone, we went back to the park for more rides. The boys had a fun time in Cars Land and this was on the Luigi's Tire ride.|
|Corey was very excited to see Mater!|
