Changes

It has been an eventful month for our family, some sad some fun. The sad part was that Grandpa Joe passed away. We loved him very much, especially Leiden. Here she is reading a book to him about a month ago. It is Leidens first experience with death and I wasn't quite sure what to tell her. So I just told her that Grandpa Joes body broke and he moved to live with Heavenly Father. I think that is good enough for now.
Today I am going to be fitted for my new road bike, too bad the weather is so lame. I am seriously sick of it. Jake should be getting his at the end of the month. We are going on a cruise soon so I am trying to get in shape to wear a swimming suit. I know it’s only a few days but photos from trips last so long. :) Jake is already looking hot, he has put on a ton of muscle weight. He works so hard to gain weight it makes me sick.
Easter was fun. We had a hunt at Grandpa Joes house by the temple with his neighbor Grandma Kay. It was nice of her to invite us. Then we had another hunt with the Smith family. Needless to say L has been living of candy for about 3 day.
Oh and Leiden is Potty trained. It was much easier than I thought it would be. I have learned as a general rule that mom’s way over exaggerate about their kids and the struggles they have with them.

first of all...i hope you're being sarcastic about that last part and the potty training...if not...you suck! i don't think i'll ever potty train luke cause it was so bad with max. luke can just stay in diapers for forever as far as i'm concerned.

i tried on swim suits this morning and it ruined my day. good luck with that (but you're already in shape so you should'nt have a problem with it!)

i'm jealous you're goin on a cruise. hope it is fun and i hope you enjoyed my novel of a comment.

Hey Manon-I am so jelous of the cruise you and Jake are going on! It would be so much fun to go on a trip with you and jake sometime! You having to lose weight for the cruise is pretty laughable because you have ALWAYS looked So good! No need to lose it!

By the way, congrats on the potty training! Sunny is also potty trained and it is a wonderful thing to not buy diapers for her! It was on her time table, not mine and that is why it was So frustrating! We need to get the newly potty trained girls together to talk about their victory!

I am glad you got your new bikes. And I'm glad that Leiden is potty trained...now you just need to teach her to keep her dress down :) Hahaha...and what did you happen to do for breakfast on Easter? I certainly hope you got to hang out with some cool people before church. I'm just sayin'...I miss you guys. I promise, one day I will be free and we will be able to randomly hang out again :)
