Spring Break Part 2

I have been waiting to post this because of computer issues. I can't get all of my pictures off of this disc. I have some pictures but not all that I wanted to include.. I will edit later when I can figure it out! :)

Tuesday, we met up with Meg and her two youngest for a playdate at McDonald's. Love our almost weekly playdates!!

Wednesday we took off for Topaz Mountain! Jared's company took off for a couple days of camping!  

I had no idea where Topaz Mountain was.. It was great!! And not many people were up there!

It was clear out in the desert! No cell phone signals for about a half an hour! It was nice to get away from the screens. But, My husband couldn't resist.. He brought the PA speakers and threw up a projector and we watched Jurassic Park the first night and The Avengers the second night. It was fun watching a movie right next to the fire. 

Brookie and Jayda finished about 50 cookies on day two. They loved having access to them. 

Bane had to do pretty much everything out of his car seat. He was such a trooper! 

 Our home for 3 days & 2 nights. It wasn't too shabby!

  Topaz Mountain is pretty cool because you can mine your own topaz and there were magnesium mines and old mine shafts and tons of things to explore. This is an old truck frame that Jared and Blake checked out.

If Bane wasn't in his car seat he was in the play pen or someones arms

The girls loved the go-kart. 

There were two four-wheeler accidents. Brandon completely flipped on a four wheeler and Ed hit a really big rock throwing the handlebars into his belly. It was an eventful day!! 

 Camp site.. 
Jared's handgun. Nuff  said!

The camp site under agers (and Blake) had a shooting competition. They shot a 22 and Brandon and Blake tied for first place!! :)

 He's not hurt!

So, I guess I had enough pics!!
We drove home on Friday. Hurried and put stuff away and did tons of laundry. Bran and Jay had a sleepover at Justin and Whitney's new house. They were so excited!
I doubled my cookie recipe and was up until 11:30 baking conference cookies!

How my mom looked at about 10:30 before I got her to go to bed! A new way of taking off her makeup. :) She had me take a pic so that she could see what she looked like. Still absolutely gorgeous!

Our Conference routine revolves around FOOD!
Saturday Morning: Jared makes homemade biscuits and gravy
Snacks: M&Ms (Peanut butter, Peanut, and Plain), Dad's amazing bean, guac, salsa thing, Ruffles & French Onion dip, etc.
Dinner: (I'll get to that)

Sunday Morning: My Dad's world famous Sourdough pancakes
More Treats
Dinner: Croissant Sandwiches with Deli meats and cheeses.. LOVE!

Saturday night Our men go to the church for Priesthood. It was Brandon's first year going. He was SO handsome!!

(Dad, Jared, & Bran) 

All the girls and Bane stayed home and ate yummy burgers from Arctic Circle and a movie, MaMa Mia. I had never seen the movie! It was awesome! Loved it!

McKayla was out of town with Sjanna all week in Las Vegas. Sjanna came up to drop McKayla off and I tightened her hair and she tightened mine. It was awesome. After all the kids were in bed we  played salon! Mom got her hair colored and cut but I didn't get a picture of her.

Spring Break was WONDERFUL! I loved the time with my husband and kids soo much! I didn't want to go back to normal life. I can't wait until summer!!
