When the weather was nice last weekend, we went to the zoo as a family:
It was super cool, seeing this 8 ton elephant put it's foot up for it to be trimmed and cleaned!
My sweet fam at the park
Super cute red panda!
One tiger licking the other =)
On Martin Luther King Jr day it was really nice out too, so I took the kids to a nearby park... as did everyone else in Wichita, it seemed! It was super busy!
This kid has no fear!

On Monday (the 19th) evening we went to a surprise party for our friend, Dan. Moriah made this sweet card for him:
Our family with Dan in the middle (with his beard and birthday cake)
Everyone who showed up at the party!
Dan with Moriah and the card =)
His sweet girlfriend Mindy and the Paleo chocolate cake she made for him
That Wednesday we went back to the zoo with some friends (but it wasn't nearly as warm out!) I love this picture of the tiger sitting right beside Jonah =)
It was "Crazy hat" day at AWANA last week, so Keenan and Moriah made silly hats... Caleb wanted in on the picture, so he found a hat to wear, too =)
My friend, Kelly, and I organized our first Girl's Night out last Thursday night and we had 15 people show up! What a great group of women I have hear to call my friends!
We had our friends, Angela and Sun Min over for dinner last Friday. The kids Loved having baby Elias here!
Moriah is Just like I was - holding babies any chance she gets! =)
Caleb wanted a turn, too =)
Moriah made a tower out of bugles
From Saturday to Sunday, my friend Robin (from Florida) and her family were here, on their way home from a month long road trip! It was so awesome to see her again and our kids hit it off Amazingly!
Moriah and Jackson are just a couple of months apart in age and had a great time playing together!
Keenan and Landon (10) bonded over board games and played them almost constantly during their visit! They are now going to be pen pals
Robin, Marc, Landon, Jackson and "Hippo" =)
Soo glad they stopped at our "hotel" on their way through!
The morning they left... the kids did NOT want to say goodbye!
A pile up of boys
A new recipe I've made recently, Marshmallow Blondies... so good!
On Sunday, the Pennys got back into town and stayed with us until this morning (Thurs). It was fun having them here, and we even managed to get some structure in place so that we did school with our kids separately every day but one!
Keenan and Jade made some pretty awesome Lego creations!
Devin and Melissa picked this dessert of my blog. I hadn't made it in forever, but it is Good!
It's called Oreo Frozen Peanut Butter Dessert
Okay, all caught up... now to get ready to host my first Super Bowl party! =)
