Kamber had her dance recital last night. She was so excited about it. One of my friends came over and did her hair. In Kamber's words "It looks so dang cute!"

All of the little girls were excited and anxious to get out there and show their friends and family how all of their hard work paid off.

Kamber did great! I was so worried about her just looking at the audience and not dancing. She actually looked at her teacher most of the time and did her routine very well.

After her recital she received some awards. One of our friends gave her this cute sucker necklace. I thought it was the cutest idea.

One of my friends little boy even gave her flowers. I think that she really felt like a princess!


Boe has moved on from wrestling to soccer. He loves it! He does really well at it and has a great time. His soccer coach is so cute! He is one of Boe's teammates grandpa. He is so sweet with the kids and they all just love him. Boe hasn't had an official game yet, but he loves to be out there practicing and scrimaging with his team.

We had a great time in Arizona this spring break. We got to bring Wesley with us and all of the kids had a lot of fun. We left Thursday night at 7:30 and arrived in Bullhead City at 4 a.m. We caught a few hours of sleep and then went shopping and sight-seeing in Laughlin. The kids and grandma and I went swimming while Dan got caught up on his sleep. Later that evening after dinner we headed to Travis's house. The kids had a great weekend playing with their cousins. We went to a movie and Uncle Travis took the "marbles" off of Kamber's back. Monday morning we packed up and headed to Wikieup. We arrived at the Arizona house 5 minutes behind Mom and Dad. Perfect timing!

We went on lots of walks with Grandma and Grandpa.

The kids also thought that it was so much fun to throw rocks at the teddybear choyas. They even got to see the huge forrests of choyas that their parents had made by throwing rocks when they were their ages. The kids thought that was pretty cool, but I am pretty sure grandma Fisher was watching and cussing us for spreading those weed cactus's!

Grandpa gave all of the kids motorcyle rides. They thought that was great. They especially like the flame helmuts grandma and grandpa had. Even Dan got in on the action and gave each of the kids a ride.

Dan made sure to get in his exercise by riding the stationary bike under the carport. The kids thought it was pretty funny.

Boe and Wesley caught this lizard all by themselves. They were so proud. (It helped that the lizard had been injured somehow and couldn't see out of one eye and had a broken leg.)

The weather wasn't super warm, but once it got into the high 70s we decided it was warm enough to take the kids swimming. Mom and Dad found a really great place to swim at the Big Sandy. It was perfect for the kids. It wasn't even knee deep and it was all sand on the bottom. The kids had a blast.

There's a store in Wikieup called Dazzos. When people visit there they get to write on the walls. The kids thought it was pretty neat and they each wrote their names on the post outside. If you ever go to Wikieup, be sure to stop by and look for their names.

We left Wikieup on Friday morning and went down to Lake Havasu. We celebrated Mom's birthday. The kids had to help her blow out the candles because I was sneaky and bought trick candles to go on it.

We had a great spring break and made lots of fun memories. We want to thank Mom and Dad for the fun times and we will plan on coming again next year!
