St Croix

The week after we got back from spending Christmas in Vegas Adam's parents told us that they had a trip planned to the Caribbean that they were unable to go on and they wondered if we wanted to take their place. What?! (True story.) Who would pass up an opportunity like that? I literally still had my suitcases out from Christmas and there was a lot of coordinating to do with the kiddos but you better believe we made it happen (thanks to my mom, Jen, & Sarah.)

We had a great time with Ginger (Adam's sister) and Taylor. The week was filled with sleeping in, beach hopping, snorkeling, many late nights, and lots of laughs. We found this smoothie stand on the side of the road. The sign leading up to the stand read: "Smooties & zoo, 2 miles." When we arrived there was a local woman making the smoothies and the "zoo" consisted of about ten cages with birds and gerbils.
The beaches were beautiful.
The men on the island were HOT... and so masculine!
Our love blossomed.

My favorite day there we took a catamaran out to Buck Island. It is a national monument underwater! We snorkeled through a grotto and some amazing reef. We saw schools of 100+ bright blue and yellow fish. It was breathtaking! (Unfortunately no underwater pictures, just this sexy one of me.)
Ginger & Taylor, we loved sharing this experience with you two. (Richard & Sherie, thank you for your generosity. And to Mom, Jen, & Sarah, thanks for putting up with middle of the night screaming, early mornings, and lots of extra chaos from our darling children.)

Despicable Me.

This chick has been a TOTAL TERROR lately. A few of the many things she has been up to include:

* Screaming all hours of the day/night just for the heck of it.

* Crawling onto the kitchen counter, then onto the microwave, getting the NEW itouch and dumping it into a full cup of water. (Ruined)

*Throwing her blanket into the bathtub.

*Crawling out of her crib in the middle of the night and then accidentally locking herself (and Charlie) into their room... @2 a.m. I might add.

Terrible two's you have arrived (two months too soon!)

Jesus wants me for a...

It is hard to believe that this guy is old enough to be in Primary. He is thrilled to be a Sunbeam, or a sunbeaN as he likes to say. I love it that I am in Primary now too and can watch my boy and listen to him sing... and wiggle!
