The Hunt and Roll

Were could all the eggs be? In fact we just found two more eggs this week.

Chad hoping to find more in the toy cubby.

Looking in the bathroom.

He found one.

And to the Roll . . . Why is it always so cold when we roll the eggs.

Chad, Keston, and K.T. - whose will go the farthest.

Baby B getting the hang on it.

Tylissa and M.T. doing their thing.

The Carousel

The castle and some of the dragons.

Chad getting ready to charge

All the kids on their mounts

Tylissa's favorite - Midnight Rose.

Reminding Val why he loves me.

See he even got on a horse - once.

Missoula has this great hand made carousel with hand carved horses, dragons, knights, castles. It was great. The kids had a great time and they kept winning free rides. You would think they would have gotten dizzy. It was a lot of fun. And the workmanship was amazing. Every horse had a name and a theme.

Keston going around and around and around.

Even a horse for the Grandmas.

Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation

Tylissa as the next great conservationist.

For the Easter weekend we headed down to Missoula and stayed in the hotel with the waterslide, which was fun (Chad had more fun making his mini waffles at the breakfast buffet). We decided to do tourist stuff. First we headed over to the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. They had some great mounts and so fun conservation/learning displays. Keston even got a high hoof, so does that make it a high two?
Ahhhhhh! Duck!
Boys will be boys - the stags fighting.

The Music Grows

Tylissa came home tonight from her music lesson and guess what she brought home . . . She has a great instructor who is very eccentric but we love her. Anyhoo, so now when Tylissa goes to music she can choose amongst violin, voice, or cello. BYU better get the scholarship ready cause she is coming. Please disregard the doorag. This week is pirate math and they get extra credit for dressing up. She would make a very cute pirate, she ended up taking the earrings out cause she has sensitive ears. The flower slippers complete the ensemble, don't you think? She must love it because she didn't complain walking home looking like a musical pack mule.
