Disneyland, Utah and Random Pictures

This year we were able to go to Disneyland for 4 days. It was so much fun. The weather was perfect and the crowds weren't bad. Last time we went Caitlyn was 18 months old. It was definitely more work with 3 kids but worth it. We would get there when the park opened and didn't leave until it closed. We would get back to the hotel and would fall asleep so fast. We were there on Caitlyn's birthday so she got to wear a Birthday pin so everybody would wish her happy birthday. She loved it. We also were able to have dinner with the princesses on her birthday. Below are some pictures from our trip. (You will notice I am not in a lot of them, I don't totally recommend taking an 8 month old, it was still worth it though)

This year we decided to plant a garden. Wade built this in our side yard. He is so handy and can figure out anything. I am always way impressed. This was taken at the end of April.
This was taken about a month later. We are hoping to get some food from it but we might have planted a little late. We have learned a lot this year so if we don't get anything this year we know better what to do for next year. The girls have loved it. They always want to show anybody that comes to our house and always are out there when Wade is. Even if we just get one tomato or one squash it will be a success.
We went to Utah for Memorial day because Wade's sister was blessing her baby. Every year on Memorial day Wade's family is always good about putting flowers on their relatives graves. If we are up there then I like to put one on My grandparents grave.

Wade ran in a 5k on Saturday and the rest of his family walked it. The 5k was to raise money for a family is Wade sister's old ward who has terminal cancer. Sam didn't sleep good the night before so I did not get up for it and Elsa was asleep when they left so only Wade and Caitlyn went.

Here are Wade's dad, mom sister Tristen, and her husband Ryan with Caitlyn and Rylee.
For Caitlyn's Birthday she received a Target Gift Card from Wade's sister Angie. She picked out Princess and the Frog Instruments. So here is the Christiansen Family Band.

Caitlyn also had her Spring Dance Recital the day we got back from Utah. She did great. She always knows her stuff.

This year we put Caitlyn in Swim lessons with a lady in our ward. She learned so much. She always wants to go swimming now.

Caitlyn was funny the first few days of class when she had to jump in the pool. She stood there and thought about for so long before she would jump in. By the time swim lessons were over she didn't think about it at all.
Here is cute Sam playing in the laundry. She is getting so big. She is crawling all over the place.

Elsa looked so funny here we had to get a picture. She is funny.
