Lets go Fly a Kite

Brooke and Jeff came to pay us a visit this weekend, which was well needed since I haven't seen Jeff since Christmas. Being the best grandpa ever, my dad always gets the grand kids special treats for when they come to visit, and this time was kites! The weather was perfect for flying kites so we all put on our coats and hats, and went to go fly a kite. Mary Poppins would be very pleased with our spring activity. 

Here is Gramps getting the kites started

He seriously is the best grandpa! My kids are very lucky (When I have kids that is) 

Now I loved these pictures so i played with them a little bit in Photoshop. 

Here is the before

and here is the after. Its just a saturation color change with, the kids color added back in.
This picture of Mike and Caden is my absolute favorite. 
So here is the before picture....

Here is the after. I don't know why but I just love their positioning and stance in this picture. I am using it in my portfolio. 
Its called:
 "My Daddy Taught Me How to Fly" 

Caden Flying his kite so high
Lauren and Caden Playing in the sand box. these kids were bound and determined to play outside, despite the freezing cold weather! 

We later went to my mom's office to do an ultra sound on Brooke, and Morgan and Lauren were giving each other piggy back rides it was really cute, and funny. 
Later that day we went shopping, and had lunch! It was so much fun. I love just shopping with the girls. 

Sunday we just all watched general conference. Now this is an angel food cake. The last time my mom made this, she didn't fill it all the way, and the cake wasn't very full, so she decided to put all the batter in and this is what happened! we all just watched it bubble over the top, but it was really good! 

Lauren was obsessed with grandma's classes and seriously wore them the whole weekend. I don't know how she didn't get a head ache, but anyways they were twins throughout the weekend. It was very cute. Isn't my mom seriously beautiful! holy smokes I hope I look just like her when I get older. 
All in all it was a very fun and eventful weekend.
