Twink's Graduation

This past weekend we made a quick trip back to BYU for Twink and Noah's graduation. We were so glad to see them walk and we are so proud of both their accomplishments. It was great to relax and visit with everyone. The twins had so much fun playing with Papa, Mimi and their uncles. We love you Twink and Noah! Congratulations!

To Cut or Not Cut

My son's hair is my daily nemesis. I grew his hair out in hopes that he would look like those cute little surfer California boys.... I'm not so sure that it's working out for him. It looks cute for about ten minutes after I do it and then I'm affraid he looks homeless the rest of the time. Some people think it's cute and others think it's not so cute. I can't decide. He inherited both Niles and my calics, one in front and one in back...this is once again a problem. So, I am turning to my blogger friends to decide for me. Do I cut it or leave it status quo. Those of you who've seen him are now free to give me your anonymous opinions.

When I grow up

Earlier in the day London had informed me she was going to be a Doctor when she grew up. I thought it was so cute! At dinner I had her tell Niles what she was going to be when she grew up. She said, "A doctor." Niles asked her why she wanted to be a doctor. Her reply amazed us: "So people can't be sick anymore."
We then asked Soren what he was going to be. He replied without a second of thought," I"m going to be Batman!" So we asked him why he wanted to be Batman. "Because it's fun!" he said with a big smile. Let's hope that "Batman" or any type of Superhero training becomes readily available at accredited universities within the next 15 years.

The bike ride

While the weather was cooperating last weekend we took the kids out for a bike ride. Soren loves riding and would do it rain or shine if we would let him. Lovey is still a work in progress. I wouldn't say that we had to force her to do it, but we were very persausive. She did it on the one condition that I wouldn't let go. We agreed and headed out on our adventure where we seemed to stop at every ground hog hole.....fascinating. By the end of the trip London was tricked (by me) into riding solo. She was very proud...for about 5 minutes, then wanted someone holding on again. It was a fun little adventure.
