Here are Calvin and Natalie on Easter. We had just gotten back from our midwest tour visiting John, Elise, Paul, Megan, and Ivy in St. Louis and Greg, Suzy, Henry, Elsa, and Ansel in Chicago. It was a fun trip!

It's catch up time. Dog and wedding...

So a lot has happened since I last wrote and I've been busy, so it's update time!The top three pictures are of our fun new dog, Brinkley! She's a Saint Bernard who weighs 140 lbs. She's 6 years old and we adopted her from the animal shelter. Once, you can get past the fact that she's HUGE, she's the sweetest dog. She rarely barks, she doesn't jump up on the counters or try to eat the kids food, she doesn't pull on the leash. She's really fun to have around! We all love her.
The next two pictures are of Calvin and Natalie meeting their cute little cousin Nate for the first time. They think he's great and love to try to make him laugh. The crazy legs on the couch are NOT mine, they are my moms! Who knows what she was doing???

The last three pictures were taken at the Washington DC temple at my cousin's Jeremy's wedding. He got married to Jenna and Natalie thought she was a princess. At their reception she had to know where she was at all times. They even danced together. It was very sweet. We also have a four generation picture of my side of the family and our family in front of the temple. It was a fun day, August 17.

Young Navy

Calvin said the funniest things today. We were heading to Old Navy and he said, "When Old Navy was first built I bet they called it Young Navy." Then we saw a barrel in the median announcing an upcoming event in the area. This is Calvin... "That barrel reminds me of Cracker Barrel. That's a great restaurant!" He is so funny these days!

Dance class

Yesterday was Natalie's dance class. She loves it. Especially the teddy bear song. She does ballet and tap. In the first picture I told her to "point her toes." But I don't think they must have covered it yet in class! Calvin is taking a science and woodworking class. He loves it! They've made a wooden car and are working on a wooden airplane right now. They also made a wooden box. He thinks it's great!

We just got back from our fun trip to Ft. Lauderdale. We actually stayed in Pompano Beach which is just north. Not that it really matters! We went with Grandma Morrison and had a blast... swimming in the ocean and pool, our new favorite restaurant: Stingers, and a great Science and Discovery museum. I also got the new Harry Potter book and read it twice while we were down there. No Disney this time though. We stayed at the Beachcomber. It was a great hotel! Huge balconies and big rooms! Great pool and on the beach. It was good times. The only thing that would have made it better is is Travis had been with us!
