Spring Break

We went out of town Sunday after church since Russell didn't have any Bishop interviews. He found out he didn't have any - and asked his secretary to not schedule any. Yippee! The first Sunday in over 1 1/2 years of no after church appointments! We headed to Grandpa and Grandma Zaugg's house for a fun couple of days.

Donovan, Christopher, Michael and Nephi vegging in the family room.
Cleaning up Grandma's toys before coming home! Nephi, Michael, Christopher and Donovan. Growing like weeds as usual.

Packing the van for the trip home. I made a WinCo run while I was near one so we had all those groceries to fit in the car as well. A very productive spring break so far!

Your boys are getting VERY tall! I can't believe how old they all are now, makes me feel old! How are you liking your new car? Glad you had a good spring break week too!

Wish you guys were still here.

Andrea said...

Sorry we missed seeing you guys. I love the pic of the family on the couch! That's probably the last time you guys will all fit together on it, though, with the speed your boys are growing at. LOL!

It was fun hanging with ya'll although we were sad we missed you this morning! We didn't think you were leaving until after lunch and so we were just about to head over when Mom called and told us you had left. Maybe next time!

I hear ya sista! Rare are the Sundays when we even see Michael other than church. I would have done the same and got out of there quick! Looks like a fun Spring break!

I just love this picture! The beach...it's the place to be!

I think this was in 2004. It was Nephi's first trip to the beach. The boys were all so little! My have they grown.

Meet the Parents...Russell and Candace
It all started for us when Russell left for Cape Town South Africa on a mission. Candace felt inspired to write him - so she did! We wrote for 3 1/2 years. Candace came home from her mission to the Texas Houston East Mission and we dated for 5 months. We married in July 1994 and have been happy ever after!
