The Story of the Three Nanny Goats Gruff (the Kindergarten way)

Grace had her Kindergarten music program today. They told the story of the Three Nanny Goats Gruff, complete with a mean old Troll! Grace sang her heart it and did all of the actions! It was so cute!
A bumble bee in the chorus!

Enjoy the opening songs of the program...

A Tulip Festival

So we skipped out on church yesterday and spend the day near Mount Vernon, Wa. at their annual Tulip Festival. We went last year, but totally missed the peak bloom time...we only saw part of one field. Yesterday everything was in FULL bloom and we saw fields and fields of amazingly bright tulips and daffodils. It was great!

And of course what would a Clegg Family outing be without an ice cream stop! We actually weren't planning on getting a treat, just to use the bathroom and we saw MAGNUMs for sale! The best ice cream ever! Very, extremely popular in Europe and I have never even had one here in the states, so of course we devoured them! And Sponge Bob push-up pops for the kids!

The Easter Bunny was HERE!

The kids' Easter Baskets were full and they had a blast on their egg hung! We spent the weekend playing in the sunshine, dying eggs and being together. It was great!

Our neighbor a few houses down (who is also in our ward) invited the kids and I over to dye eggs. We had a lot of fun! We used glitter and stickers and made a huge mess! But now we have 2 dozen eggs to eat.

Brady and his buddy "Big Pete"
We have already made egg salad sandwiches and deviled eggs...What else?!?!

Happy Easter

Utah for Spring Break!

For Spring Break the kids and I headed to Utah for a week of fun! 12 Grandkids all together in one house = craziness! But everyone had a blast! The kids all slept together in their sleeping bags in the basement and loved being together. We played at the park, chalked, played basketball and even did some painting!

Enjoy some of our fun times! Thanks Christiansen Clan!

Waiting to board the airplane! These kids are amazing and had a blast flying!
The whole group! We only got one day all together before someone when to China...crazy I know, but we laughed so hard and had a great time those few hours together.
Shoot 'em up!
The zoo was a blast!

Our very own Smurf! Grace would have spent hours drawing creations with sidewalk chalk. She is such an artist!

Snoqualmie Falls

This weekend during a break from the relentless rain, I took the kids to see Snoqualmie Falls. We have had so much rain here that we flooded again this week, but he falls were beautiful! We got our umbrellas and rain boots (two Seattle necessities) and loaded in the car. We still got soaked! Normally the falls don't even have half as much water pouring down. So it was a sight!
