Easter plus some more

The two people that read my blog have been asking why I haven't been posting any new pics so I figured I better try and play a little catch up.  I will start with Easter and see how it goes...

We road tripped down to Utah for Easter so the boys could experience Easter how it is supposed to be experienced...with their cousins.  They were both pretty good at hunting this year so it made it alot of fun to watch.  Even though Troy took an extra day off work, the weekend was still way too short.  I feel bad when I don't get to visit all of my friends while I am there because I just want to squeeze in as much time with my family as I can.

We decided to stop at the Dinosaur Park in Ogden on our way home to help wear out the boys for the long drive home.  It worked.  Stockton woke up about an hour from Boise and when he realized we weren't going back to Emi's house, he had a minor meltdown.  I think he felt like he had been tricked.  The boys LOVED the dinosaurs so we might just have to make it a tradition every time we down to stop on our way home.

 The Boys discovered their new favorite activity while I am in the is nice to not have them begging at my feet, but it makes the clean up twice as much.  They are pretty cute to watch though.  I may need to bribe their Aunt JJ into making them some more masculine aprons.

We kicked off the season of the ice cream truck with a bang.  Do you think they enjoyed it?  They are lucky the ice cream guy offered to give us 2 items for $3, otherwise they would have had to share.  He said he had a "good first day" so it was on him.  I think he is just trying to steal our loyalty from the sweet little ice cream lady that always tells me what darling boys I have.  His tactic may have been successful.  

I walked down the stairs just in time to capture this brilliant moment of Stockton.  I don't know why it was so funny, but it was.

And just look at my "baby".  It's hard to believe that he will be 2 in just a couple of months.  But when I see pics like this one, I can't deny it.
Speaking of growing up...does anyone other than Amy notice the significance of this picture?  All it took was the bribe of a trampoline.  Who knew it was that easy all this time?
