Band Trip

Saturday, April 28, 2018

Seth went on the Band trip to Disneyland. He had to leave at 4:00 am. He spent the trip there talking to friends, watching Netflix, and then everyone watched Coco. At the park he hung out with Timothy and Max. His favorite ride was Splash Mountain. He loved the rides and the churros. It was a fun day. On the way home everyone on the bus watch Ferdinand and slept.

Hummel had their Field Day. I ran one of the stations and played in the 5th Grade vs Teacher Kickball game. As always - we won!

Seth and I went to Wally's Woody Birthday Party. They had it at the same park and played some of the same games as Seth's 5th birthday. It was fun to remember and Wally is so cute and sweet.

We were able to attend Rory's blessing. All the uncles were asked to be in the circle, but when the time came, Ryan was out having a bathroom emergency. Pretty funny!

I'm a sucker and volunteered to be in a pie eating contest (we had to fish gummy worms out of whipped cream) for a testing kick off assembly. I lost to Ms. O'Brien by 2 seconds.

We got Moviepass cards and can go to as many movies as we want for $9.99 a month. We go to movies all the time now. We went to Ready Player One with some of the Book Club ladies and the husbands. We also took the kids to see A Quiet Place. I cried both times.

Seth came back to Hummel for Take Your Child to Work Day. He worked on inventory, read to students, and helped with checkout. He did a good job and secretly loved hearing all the teachers say how big he is getting.

Spring Break

March 24 - April 2, 2018

Saturday we headed up to Paragonah to spend a few days with my parents. Jordan came with. We had heard about a hike near Kanarraville. We knew that the hike went through water, but it was cold and we only made it about half way.



Grandpa got the horses ready for the kids to ride and they rode around the lot.

That night we went into Cedar City and had some BBQ and went to see the Lara Croft movie. 


We got up and went to church then later we drove out to the Paragonah Gap to see the Petroglyphs. It was windy and cold so we only lasted a few minutes there.

Nearby, there are dinosaur tracks that we checked out. It was sunnier here so we lasted a lot longer.


Monday morning the kids drove around town on Grandpas's ATV.

After lunch we went up to Brian Head to play in the snow and do some sledding. We wanted to rent tubes but it was closed so we just used the little sleds we had brought up or just went on our buts. The kids made a snowman and wrestled around in the snow. 


After dinner we made s'mores in the backyard and Grandpa told his story about the bear getting his leg.



We spent the morning on target practice outside of town. Grandpa let us each shoot the family heirloom gun which was pretty cool. We headed back to Vegas that afternoon.


We had to be back to Vegas by Wednesday so we could get Cam's wisdom teeth out. She was very happy on the drugs and told a story about how her grandpa is a badass because he looked a hawk in the eye.



We had the Tatums over for egg decorating. My kids are more into painting than dying eggs. It's more creative.


We watched General Conference and worked on a puzzle of the Millennium Falcon over the weekend. 

Jacquelynn, Jeff, and baby Ryan were in town, so we had the whole family over to eat Cafe Rio pork and visit. Even without the other Sokol kids who had stayed with Grandpa and Grandma in Paragonah, the house was crazy and crowded. Lee brought a cake for all the birthdays that month. They forgot someone but the cake was still packed with names.
