Zoo Friends

My work bestie Becky and her niece, Zooey Deschanel*,  went with us to the zoo where we had a grand old time. Mostly I'm really bad at taking pictures at the zoo and therefore, have no pictures to post. But this time between the two of us, we conquered...sorta. The little girls were pretty cute together. The big girls also got along, but just not as adorably.
*Some names have been changed to protect the innocent.
Two little monkeys and one primate.

Yeah, besties hold hands.

Ok, let's get going guys...

I let the seal do most of the work.


Say what?

Love this face! She loved the train.

Also loved the Carousel!

Becky introduces Molly to the wonder of running water.

All the cool kids touch the giant marble water ball.

Awww! Great day at the zoo with cute girls!

Look What I Can Do!

Molly's all about activities . . . 

. . . she rocks at the slide . . . 

. . . she's a pro on the swing (Hi, Auntie Anna!) . . .

. . . and she can hammock like no one's business (Hi, Auntie Lauren!).

After all these activities, though, it's time to curl up
with a wild jungle cat and take a nice, long nap.

Springy Break

All good things have themes: kids' birthday parties, classic literature,
and, of course, Spring Breaks.

This year's theme: Bears and Fish

This was Molly's first "Build-A-Bear" experience and she ate it up. She lovingly chose and brought to life Sydney, an Australian Koala Bear. Sydney's real-life bio: she's a hipster fashion photographer, who has a passion for Pinterest, guavas and Ryan Gosling.

Sometimes Moms love Build-A-Bear, too.

Sydney likes to get her herr did while listening to "All the Single Ladies"

Little-known fact: Mollys and Koala Bears hibernate best with snuggles.

We headed up to Flaming Gorge to fish with Captain Kyle Edwards and caught GIANT mackinaw. You know a fish is GIANT when it's big enough to hug.

Even Brian caught one :)

Another little-known fact: The Geneva Convention mandates that
upon catching a 25-pound fish, you MUST take a photo like this.

Just upholding international law.

Ice-off at Strawberry = 21 inch cutthroat trout, hurray!

In conclusion, this paper discussed that Spring Break's theme was Bears and Fish for these three reasons: Ryan Gosling, Switzerland, and Snuggles.

The Artist

Molly decided to pay tribute to the newest Best Picture Award Winner- The Artist.

First, there was some instruction from a master artist. Hi, Grandpa John!

Then, some in-depth collaborative discussion.

Followed by some guided practice.

Finally, get out of the way Grandpa, I gots this!

Like all good artists, Molly thinks outside of the box . . . 

and dives into her work. Bravo!

* Special thanks to Grandpa John!

Easter Time!

Molly in her BEAUTIFUL Easter dress. Thanks Larissa!

This egg is awesome!

Pink eggs are especially delicious.

Hey guys, I found one.

I know I left my favorite egg down here somewhere...

Ok, I'll share.

Easter morning basket fun.

Who doesn't get a mermaid for Easter? It's a common tradition.

Easter was so much fun it left us overwhelmed, but so content.

The one and only

Molly is getting SO big! She's nine months on April 28th. Time flies when you're having fun!
Here our some pictures of our beautiful baby!

Can you even believe how cute she is?

I love this face! I'm not quite sure what she's disgusted by, but she's disgusted.

Wild hair for a wild girl!

Molly loves her little whale that swam all the way over from Hawaii.
Thanks Matt and Brigette!

Check out these eyelashes! They are gorgeous! Not only are they long, but they curl!
She sure didn't get them from me, she has her dad to thank for those lovely lashes!
