Cambry plays soccer

Cambry played soccer and loved it.  I wasn't sure if she would enjoy it, but she really had a good time and loved running around the field.

Run Cambry Run.
Loved watching her play! She has such a fun, cute personality.

Kindergarten Graduation

WOW! I can't believe how fast this year went by.  Izzy was lucky to have an amazing teacher, Mrs. Beck.  She learned so much and became such a great reader!  
They had an end of year program, where they sang songs and had a slideshow of their year.  I might have teared up during it, I can't believe how big she is. 

Izzy and Mrs. Beck.  I am so glad she had a great teacher, she really pushed Izzy, helped her learn a lot and helped her feel comfortable.
I am so proud of her.  She sometimes felt nervous to go to school, but she was brave and went anyways. 
Love this girl!
Watch out, Brielle will get that cookie!
Izzy also participated in Learning Dynamics' Kindergarten Enhancement Program.  She really learned a lot with Mrs. Covington and had a great time!

Camry loves dance

Cambry absolutely loved taking dance this past year.  She was in a 3/4 year old tap and ballet class.  When the class started she wasn't 3 yet, but they let her do a trial class and the teacher said she would be great in the class. 
So cute with her class at her recital!
My cutie!

It was fun watching her do something she enjoys so much!!

Spring Break part 2

On Thursday we drove to Monterey.  We found a fun park, Dennis the Menace, and the kids loved playing. 

On Friday we made the 17 mile drive in Monterey.  It was really pretty, but the kids weren't very impressed; they were ready to get to the aquarium. 

Izzy took some great pictures of the sea life.
From Monterey we drove to Visalia to the Myers house.  The Snarrs drove up from Orange County so it was a party.  The best part was the Myers were redoing their kitchen/living room so the house was a construction zone.  But they were still so gracious to let us all stay there.  
The jump house was a hit for the kids.
It was a little chilly for the pool.  This is about as fas as the kids made it in.
The Snarrs brought their bird and Izzy made an instant friend.  She is such an animal lover.
I love these girls.  We have had our fair share of hardships over the years and I am lucky to have them by my side.  We shared so many good times in our Provo neighborhood and it is great to pick up right where you left off.  Loved the late nights laughing, reminiscing, and even learning new stories of each other! The best quote of the weekend was from Melisse, "Don't look at the clock."
Look at all of her kiddos!  Who would have thought?  When we were back in Provo Melisse was the only one with kids-Elsa and Carter. 
Front:Truman, Cambry, Ayla
Middle: Hazel, Izzy
Back: Brielle, Penny, Melisse, Theo, Carter, Elsa, Hudson, Kellie

Izzy and Hazel became such cute friends over the couple of days we were there.
Remember how I mentioned Melisse didn't have a kitchen?! No biggie she still whipped up the best strawberry shortcake. 
Izzy was not happy to leave her new friend. 
Sunday morning we woke up and drove 3 hours back to Oakland.  It was a short flight back home and the kids were great.  I am so grateful we were able to have such a wonderful spring break.  Visiting Rachel and her family in San Francisco was amazing and spending time with friends who you love like family was a great experience too!

Choir Concert

Izzy finished her choir year.  I was so proud of her.  She didn't love practices, but she did it!
It's always more fun to do things with a friend.  So glad Izzy and Gwen had each other. 
She sang beautifully.   I loved hearing her practice her songs.  She looked like an angel up on the stage.
