Happy Easter

Easer Morning at Nana and Pops.

Proof that Gracie does know how to walk, she just still chooses to crawl most of the time.

First Easer Egg Hunt.

San Antonio

We had such a fun time in San Antonio and the weather was perfect (80+ degrees). The drive was only 2 hours. After we got to the hotel, Gracie took a quick little nap, then we had some fun. We went to The Alamo and walked around the grounds. It was an amazing site and Gracie loved all the cannons. We then went across the street to the River Walk. It was beautiful. Ben said it was a little taste of what Italy might be like. We ate dinner at "The Original Mexican Restaurant" on the river walk. Gracie was entertained by all the birds the whole time (probably because Ben was feeding them chips). After that we took a carriage ride at dusk. We got back to the hotel at 8 and were very impressed that Gracie lasted that long and was so good. She really enjoyed herself as much as we did. Saturday we walked around this Mexican Market, then headed home after we made a stop to go shopping at some outlets. At about 3 Grace finally crashed in the car for 45 minutes. It's be a busy couple days for her, but she enjoyed every second of it.

First Half of Spring Break

Saturday morning we went up to Nana and Pop's to visit them and had a fun filled time. Ben and his Dad went to a BYU basketball game Saturday night. On Sunday we had a big dinner with all of the cousins. Gracie loved all of the commotion and fit right in. She even learned how to stand up all on her own without pulling up on to anything. (Hopefully this means she's getting even closer to walking...I hope so.) Monday night we went to a Mavericks game. Tuesday we took Gracie to the Gainsville Zoo and that night had a nice dinner at the Petroleum Club. It was so nice to have Ben around stress free.

Gracie loves this car, especially when Ben pushes her really fast. It's cute to see her hands on the wheel and her bobbing up and down. I definitely would recommend this for kids.
Nana and Gracie were inseparable. If Nana was around Gracie wanted nothing to do with anything but her. I remember when she used to be attached to me and I looked forward to this day. However, now that it's here, it made me a little sad. Her and Nana are good buddies.

The food at the Petroleum Club was amazing as well as the company. We had fondue, then soup, then bread and salad, then a pallet cleanser (sorbet), then the main course (I ordered Mahi-Mahi), and last dessert. We left very full.

Snow in Texas

We were very surprised to wake up this morning to find it had snowed last night. I couldn't believe that it actually snowed in Texas in March; especially because at the beginning of the week it was 78 degrees. I thought we had moved away from the snow. It wasn't that much and at least it all melted by mid morning. Now that we have lived here for almost a year (9 months) I think I have witnessed all the crazy weather conditions including: humidity, heat, rain, thunderstorms, wind advisory, tornado warning, hail, and now snow. Considering it all, the winters in Texas are very nice compared to Utah. Were curious to see how the weather will hold out this week for Ben's spring break.
