Stuff we have been up to.

Last Saturday we went to the Las Vegas Zoo in the morning with Andrea, Joey, Nikki, Aaron, Chloe, and Jackson. The kids had a blast seeing all of the animals up close. The only animal we didn't see up close was the lion they were back in the shade. But we heard every hour or so they give the lions a big piece of meat at the front of their cage so that everyone can see them. Maybe next time. But we got to see the monkeys, different birds, goats, alligators, and otters. After the Zoo we went back to my sisters and had a BBQ and swam.  Lots of fun!!!
This was the boys favorite part of the pool. They put all of their toys in there and then fished them out.

This alligator was huge

This monkey was so funny he would come right up to the glass and just look at the kids and then one of the kids would hit the glass so he would hit the glass back. 

I think some times the kids like the fake animals more then the real ones

Dax wanted to ride the goats instead of petting them
Dax and Jack feeding the birds. I now have a fear of pigeons... they did not care how close the flew to you.  Dax with his cousins Treyson and Ty on Mother's Day. They had to have their chairs as close as they could get them. 
Over Mother's Day weekend we did a day trip to St. George to see our favorite comedian Brian Regan. I don't think i have ever laughed so hard in my life. If you have never heard of him go to or just you tube him. He is hilarious!!!!

Cinco De Mayo Celebration

We thought since it was Cinco De Mayo this week we would cook some carna asada and have a party. Bryan's best friend Tom was in town with his family also... so i guess we should call it Cinco De Mayo/Friend BBQ celebration. I don't know if it is just because i am prego, but the food was delicious!! We had carna asada, guacamole, salsa, creamy tomitillo dressing, homemade tortillas (from Costco you cook them yourselves)  and other toppings. It is fun to always catch up with old friends. Then after dessert we played some Wii Sports to work off all the food we ate. Lots of fun!!

I finally went and had Daxs 2 year pictures done... my sister had told me about this portrait innovations place-not to bad for $9.95. I can not believe how old he is getting.
