Random things....

Marlee devoured a peanut butter sandwich (which she never does) and had leftovers all over her cheeks. :) Good girl to eat!
So I planted 2 rose bushes last year, and added 3 more right in front of my house. They are growing way better than I expected them to. I LOVE having rose bushes. They grow surprisingly well in the desert.
Below are last year's bushes, they're off to the right side of the house where an ugly bush and tree use to be. It's all hooked up to a drip system that came with the house, so there's little work involved with keeping them up. Nothin' beats that! (Actually, self-grooming bushes would beat that, but I'm pretty sure they don't make those yet.) :)
Ok, so Landon came out of his room the other day dressed (or undressed?) like this. We had to laugh and take a picture of course! Silly kid!! I have no idea what possessed him to do this.

Slip 'n' slide!

So the kids have been excited for summer to come so that we could go swimming. It was a hot day so we decided to pull out the slip 'n' slide and the kids had a blast. Even I got into the sliding action, but I'll spare you the pictures of that. :) We're looking forward to swimming lessons this summer. Our local pool is really cool. It has a kiddy area, just right for babies and toddlers. Plus it has a deep area for older kids and a water slide to boot. Adults get in for $1.50 and kids are a buck. When we lived in Logan, there was a city pool just like the one here and it was $3 per person, so we were excited when we found out how cheap we could get in for. The kids are itchin' to swim!

Tired little girl

The other day I put on a recorded show for Marlee and Landon to watch while I got lunch ready. When I was just about ready to bring them to the table, Bryce came out of his office and found Marlee on the couch like this:

She gets tired so much earlier in the day and easier than the boys did (that's a symptom of ASD). I have to say that I love how she takes 3 hour naps still, and sleeps 11-12 hrs a night. I hope that doesn't change after her heart surgery! Anyway, I'm just glad she didn't fall off the couch!! :)
