April Madness

Nothing about March was madness for me. As soon as Steve's bracket showed no signs of winning him tons of money, I tuned out the basketball. April however, is going to be a busy month. I'm so glad it is finally here! First off I'd like to officially welcome birthday season.

April 5th- Today! Happy Birthday to my brother Jason!
April 8th- Happy Birthday Kevin (Nephew)! Happy Birthday Jill(SIL)!
April 11th- Happy Birthday Dad! Happy Birthday Beth ( are 14 and I am going crazy about that)!
April 16th- Happy Birthday Mel (big sis)! Happy Birthday Connie (SIL)!
April 21st- Happy Birthday Aimee (SIL)!!
I really hope I didn't forget anyone.

On Tuesday Easton and I leave for our big trip! First stop, Nampa Idaho to see Steve's fam and hopefully this cool person! From there my parents will drive by on their way from Oregon to Rexburg and pick us up so we can go to Jenni's COLLEGE GRADUATION!!!

From there we'll turn around and drive all the way back to Springfield, stopping to spend Easter in a hotel room...for the second year in a row. Hopefully as Easton grows older he will be able to learn that Easter is special for other reasons, and doesn't just mean a fun trip to the Super 8.

Then we will spend the week in beloved Oregon, taking in it's beauty and getting ready for this girl's BIG DAY! Hopefully while we're there we will also get Easton's pictures taken by my super talented friend, and maybe get some shopping done because Las Vegas has neither an IKEA or Container Store...2 stores this city should most definitely thave.

We will be there for 7 days and I already feel like it's going to be busy busy busy...which I'm fine with because it will all be fun; bridal shower, wedding, family in town (hopefully), special friends visiting, and lots of grandma and grandpa time for Easton. The only down side: we have to leave Steve behind. 12 days without Daddy.

The second we get back from our trip, we will hopefully be moving into our new house!
See, busy month, but so much fun!

I can't believe Jenni's graduating College CRAZY! And I can't believe you don't have an IKEA or a Container store in Vegas. Hope you have fun on your trip!

Christi said...

That is a whole lot of birthdays!!! I am jealous b/c you are going to have such a fun time! That is funny that you are going to spend Easter in a hotel for the 2nd time!! Sounds like a good tradition to me :)

Wish you could come via Grantsville! Have a great time. Be safe and enjoy time with the family.

Kara said...

Well, you know that you are going to be missed around here in the next couple weeks. I'm just glad you're coming back soon after my mom leaves cause I'm going to need you!! I hope you have a good time though!

Lani said...

I can't wait for you to get here!
Congrats Jenni! I can't believe you are graduating already. My how time flies when you aren't the one studying!

Easter in the motel last year was fun! But you can stop here in Nampa instead of a motel room on your way back to Oregon! We have plenty of room! The Easter Bunny can find you here as easily as at the Motel 8.

Lizzie said...

FUN!! I'm jealous. You're trip sounds like so much fun (and a bit exhausting being pregnant and having a toddler in tow). = ) Have fun!!!

And by the way, you look like such a good Mom Em. Really, you seem so fun and happy and loving with Easton.

Lauren said...

What an exciting trip!! Sounds like you guys are going to be busy busy busy!! Happy Easter!!


Ok, Easter in a motel room OR... Easter in labor?? Um, I think I'd go with option A because let me tell you, Easter dinner does not look so hot coming out as it did going in! [Speaking from a little personal experience in case you can't tell.]

Other than that, it sounds like you've got an awesome, action-packed month planned! Have a great trip!

WOW!!! That IS busy!!! I'm SO excited for Jenni to graduate and for all of you to COME HOME!!! It's going to be a BANGIN PARTY!!! And i'm SO happy you'll be here for my wedding!!! That is just so special!!! Hopefully the Easter Bunny will know where you find you guys! He's pretty smart though, i'm sure he'll figure something out! Love ya! can't wait to see yoU!!

Ilene said...

You better get to see me! Because I NEED to see you! You can even sneak over after E's asleep at the in-lawas and we can watch old GG shows together and eat something fattening (and non chocolate).

Jill said...

Thanks for the birthday shout out and the phone call today. Good luck in your travels. CAN'T WAIT to see you and Easton.

For Vegas having a lot of cool stuff, they're lacking a bunch of essential stuff too!

Mary said...

So jealous! Nothing better than being with your favorite people (sorry Steve can't come)!

greg&sarina said...

Megan and Greg said...

Wow that IS busyness! Sounds great! Ok Ems, it's time for a belly shot. It's probably small, but THERE so I'd like to SEE. I love you. I hope you're doing well. I need to call you.
