Jac had Friday off since he worked late one night. We wanted to do something fun...so we went to the Aquarium! We were going to go to the Zoo...but it had snowed the night before. Crazy!! We were getting so used to the Spring weather. =(
So, back to the Aquarium. It was the kids first time....and also Jac's! It was their Friday Family Night...so the kids got a discount at the aquarium and ate at the restaurant for 2 bucks. We had a blast! The exhibits were awesome...and I seriously cannot believe how BIG some fish get. The kids could ride them! Yee haw!
They got to pet sting rays. They were slimy but it was cool. We will definitely have to go there again. Emery loved the sharks. It was one of her favorite parts.
On Saturday, we met up with Jac's friends and ate out at "the Med." We went during their Happy Hour. (what time exactly is Happy hour...haven't a clue) But they had an awesome menu. We tried a little bit of everything....and it was DELICIOUS! We will be going again....I'm sure.
So our normal days are filled with Emery going to school, and then riding bikes around our little neighborhood. Emery gave a talk today in church and Ethan said the prayer. We are feeling very blessed to be here and can see the Lord's hand in our lives. I am extremely in love with my family.

I just can't believe we've been here 25 days! We've lived in our house for 23 days....crazy!!! We have had a blast! It is fun getting to know our neighbors and people from our ward better. Seriously, the Lord has blessed us so much!
This past weekend has been fun. On Friday, we had the missionaries over for dinner. Then we got a babysitter (like our first one ever that wasn't family) and headed over to a friends house for a game night of Ticket to Ride. There was 4 couples in total. Even though Jac won in our group, it still was a lot of fun!
On Saturday, Jac woke up and wanted to get the house clean. YEA!!! The morning we cleaned, then I headed off to get a pedicure with a friend and that night we invited one of Jac's co-workers over and his family. We did a BBQ and played another game of Ticket to Ride. yahoo! (haha-or should I say choo-choo)
Jac and I already have callings. Jac is the Cub Master and I am the Relief Society Meeting Coordinator. (that pretty much means that I am in charge of the previously-called Enrichments) I am excited to be involved and do the best I can. Jac also left this morning to go to 360 Flex..a conference. He is presenting with his brother and I am just so proud of him. I know he'll have a blast and just wish me luck with the 4 kids for 4 days. =)
