Today is Brock's 3rd Birthday! He is getting so big. We had a little party for him last night with some friends. We had Cafe Rio Salads since it is almost Cinco de Mayo. He was so excited for his birthday but he was most excited about his Choo-Choo Cake he was getting. He talked about that cake more than any present. He opened his presents today. He got a Thomas the Train: Train Rug, Tent, Pajamas , sleeping Bag, and Movie and(non Thomas items) a Bubble mower, Aquadoodle board, new church outfit, Wiggles, book, Some bubbles, chalk, and Super Spies movie. He loved all of his presents so thank you everyone for thinking of him! We love you so much Brock!!

Tulip Festival

On Monday we headed down to Thanksgiving Point to go to the Tulip Festival. I thought it would be some new and different to go do but I was so surprised at how cool it was. The kids had a great time running around and looking at all the flowers and fountains. They loved the Children's Garden. It had tunnels and a lighthouse, and Noah's ark, and bear, and mazes. It was awesome. Then after we were done walking through all the gardens we headed over to this large grassy area that had 3 huge waterfalls at the base of it. It was so pretty. We ate our lunch there and then we had to head back to go pick up Caleb from school. We will definitely be returning there as a family and spending even more time there.

Dairy Farm

My friend Tagan' s family has a Dairy Farm and every year some FFA groups go over and they have Farm Days. The past 2 years Calebs School class has gone for a field trip and Tagan has been nice enough to invite us a long with her girls during Farm Days. It is pretty neat. They bring in some sheep, llamas, baby goats, baby calfs, and of course there are cows there. Cole and Brock liked looking at the animals from a distance but not too brave when it came to petting them. It was such a nice day that after we went over to Tagans' parents house to have lunch in their backyard. We all got a little bit of sun but we have to enjoy it when we can get it lately. Cooper was such a great baby he rode in the stroller and even took a little nap.

TreeHouse Museum

The week after we got back from the cruise we took the boys to the Treehouse Museum in Ogden. It is a pretty cool place, it was the first time I had ever been there. Brock was in heaven they have a little area with about 6 or 7 train tables set up for the kids to play with. He pretty much spent his whole time there.
There an old-fashion fire truck that all the boys loved to play on. There was a music area where Cooper enjoyed beating on the drum. There were a ton of different dress-ups for the kids to try on. We stayed for like 2 1/2 hours and the boys wanted to stay longer. We will definitely have to go back.
