We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirndess and call it love.

Swimming Lessons February 2014

We made some great gains with swimming lessons this go around.  Last summer, Brett did a lot of crying because he was scared of the water and it was very cold (Dad may have done some crying because of the cold water too).  Allison could care less what the temperature is, she just wanted to be in the water.  The pools at K-State were nice and warm!  Hooray for Brett.  These videos were the first time they jumped off the diving board.  As you can see, Brett wanted his teacher to come closer, and Allison attempted a "dive."  :)

Our First Camping Trip, February 2014

Cole has been saving and saving and saving his money.  He decided that he would buy camping gear with the money he saved.  We took a trip to the temple in January and of course we had to stop by Cabella's.  He was so excited about all his new camping gear, that he couldn't wait for spring.  SO...we camped in February.  Let's just say in the middle of the night (even though our kiddos were fast asleep in there zero degree sleeping bags), that 20 degrees was a bit cold.  So I got up and took them home.  When we came to get Cole the next morning, it was snowing.  Despite the not so pleasant weather, we had a blast.  I think we will wait for spring to try camping again :)

Valentine's Day Fun 2014

We were invited to a spectacular Valentine's Day party at the McCulloch's.  As you can see, our favorite part was making cookies with WAY too much frosting :)
