So off we go. I found some simple pleasures, that I'm happy to share, that kept the boys happy. Tim's favorite toy was the tambourine. He had a great time playing that.
We had movies, and a few toys. One thing that was great and NO mess was the magna-doodles. I found place mats for a $1 with the states on it and another one with planets that the boys liked looking at. The special treat was candy necklaces. I had bags with snacks in them and surprises along the way for keeping things fun and happy. The best treat of all was having Aunt Connie come with us to Utah. I picked her up in Vegas and she rode with me. Aunt Connie is the photographer for the family and does a fabulous job!!! Here is her website, so if you are in the Vegas area and want some really good pictures taken look her up.
The day of the wedding we woke up and I was getting the boys breakfast. I asked Tommy how he was feeling, he said that he was ok, then he proceeded to throw up. What would a day be like with out drama from my boys. I can only imagine. (Side note.... I missed Rodney (my brother) going through the temple the first time because Tommy was sick) So I looked like I was going to miss Rodney's wedding as well. My other aunt, Aunt Jerry, offered to stay with the boys, so I was able to make it. It was a beautiful ceremony and both Rodney and my new sister-in-law, Laralyn looked happy and in love. I unfortunately don't have any pictures of the reception. But my sister Eliza does. Scroll down to the post "Last One Standing" The last thing on that post is a video clip of James and my niece Breein. Breein "taught" James how to dance. The clip is really cute. And Breein even taught James how to dip her. It was a great night and it was fun to see old friends and family.
So Friday we just hung out trying to get over the bug that we all had. And Saturday was one of my best friends Jen Hunsaker.... that in it self deserves it's own post so you will have to wait for that.
By Sunday we were back with the family for an Easter egg hunt. I like living in Arizona, but it's times like this that I miss living near family. The Easter Bunny came and all the kids had so much fun finding the eggs. Tommy and Tim both just like the candy inside.
The boys made out pretty well, and had a great time finding them with all their cousins.
