we got our spring brih-zaaaake on (that's "spring break" for those of you who've never lived in the hood)

pretty much it was a bunch of this.
spring skiing is the BEST!

we skied in utah most of the week with a day for shopping and tromping around salt lake, which was pretty much the only time i pulled out my camera.

we ran into elder holland and his wife coming out of our hotel this day.  we were the only ones there and they stopped and talked to us for a few minutes.  that made everyone's day.

note the ski-goggle face

we spent the weekend at wade's parents watching conference and generally scrambling about the hills behind their house.  the little girls took it upon themselves to be soul masters and protecters of the dogs.

these two didn't wear shoes the whole weekend.

 well, there's the end of ski season.  i have to say i'm okay with it.  until next year.


let's make it a nice round number, shall we?

if five is nice, then six must be better.
that's our thinking anyway.
so we're excitedly looking forward to welcoming another 
baby GIRL
to the family the end of the summer.
five girls!  what the what!?!
i'm beyond thrilled and slightly astounded.
although, i assumed we were having another girl.  just because.
not sure how to describe what wade is right now.
obviously happy,
maybe a bit flabbergasted?
shell shocked?
don't know.
give it a day or two to set in.
wonder how max will react.
i'm sure he'll be happy.

i love it!

p.s. i can't imagine what she'll look like ;)
p.p.s. when i told max he laughed.
