Olivia loves to be outside whenever she can.
For Matt's birthday we went to Winger's.

Olivia loves riding on this police toy that was Ashton's when he was little. She's flipped over several times because she likes to rock it as high as she can.

I love all of our perennial flowers that come up in the spring.

Olivia really wanted to wear her goggles.

The Saturday before Memorial Day we all went with my dad's side of the family to see Tomorrowland since we all love Disney. It was definitely different than what I expected. Since the cemetery isn't far from the theater we were at some of us went there to put things on the headstones. Both of my grandma's, my brother, my aunt and nephew Eli are buried there. We were so excited that Eli became a big brother with the arrival of his little brother Austin so we had to put a "Big Brother" banner up for him.

Olivia saw Matt up against this tree and went and stood against it too.
Ready to walk to church with her brothers.

On Memorial Day the kids played outside for awhile in the morning. I liked looking out the window as I was doing laundry to see Olivia riding up and down our sidewalk on her scooter.

She was outside for a long time on her scooter.
My parents called and wanted to see if we wanted to walk around Silver Lake with them so after lunch we headed up to the lake. There was still quite a bit of snow especially in the shaded areas but it was nice to be outside and up in the mountains.
My mom was taking the picture and Olivia didn't want to stop walking for a picture.
After we were finished we headed to my aunt and uncles for a barbeque. Ashton and Olivia fell asleep on the way there and continued sleeping after we got there. Those 2 are so alike in so many ways! We had a great Memorial Day with family and good food.
Olivia was watching a movie with a blanket over her head like a tent.

Matt's mom is putting together a book of a story her great-grandfather wrote about dinosaurs and wanted all of the grandchildren to help illustrate it. For Olivia's page I traced a mammoth and she colored the picture. She is coloring here with her left hand, she still uses both hands so I'm not sure if she'll be right or left handed.

Ashton drew a dodo bird and stegosaurus. (sorry for the sideways picture)
Kaleb drew 2 pictures of a megalopterous (the make believe dinosaur the story is about).
Another soccer season ended. We may have lost every game but I had an awesome group of kids and they had a blast playing together at every game.

I was able to go on a field trip with Ashton's class to the zoo. Ashton and Cyrus were hilarious the whole time and had more fun taking crazy pictures on prop/animal statues than looking at the animals. I had so much fun with them and it was nice to see the zoo since there have been many changes since the last time I was there.

We had issues with water coming in the basement of the cabin as the snow melted and so the foundation company came out to fix the problem from the outside. In the end they weren't sure that it would be prevent further leaks so they ended up filling back in the dirt and adding a waterproofing system on the inside because they wanted to make sure that there wasn't any way water could get in again. I wish they hadn't already dug out the dirt because we lost quite a few rocks so we'll have to get more next year but at least it's done and hopefully there are no more issues. Matt ended up taking the kids up with him one of the days they were up there.

They drove over to the lake and hiked around for awhile.
Olivia was being silly with her fruit roll-up and I love all the dirt on her face!
I used a straightener to curl Olivia's hair for church. I took smaller sections for a tighter curl and this is how it looked when I finished. It goes really fast when using a straightener and doesn't matter as much if she's wiggly so lately I've been using the straightener to curl her hair.

She LOVES nursery, don't know how else to explain it. She's always so excited when sacrament meeting ends to run in there and is always talking about it in the morning before church.
