The other day Wyatt comes up to me and asks if he could make fruit salad. I said "Where on earth did you see fruit Salad". Wyatt said "on Nick Jr. mom, can we make it?" Nick Jr. has a little thing where kids make things like cookies, a cactus garden or even a fruit salad. So $40 later we made fruit salad. Good thing Wyatt loves fruit, we are going to eat a lot of fruit this week.
I have only ONE TULIP. Thanks to the goats and the deer. I am so sad they are my favorite flowers. Tulips remind me of my wedding day. We got married 7 years ago in May. I read in a book that a long time ago tulips were only used by the wealthy. So does that mean we are as rich as one little tulip?

Paul, his Dad, and his brother Gary spend weekends in August thru October hunting up the Utah mountains. These animals are kind of a big deal since they hunt with a bow and arrow. You have to be close enough to hit the moving animal. The challenge is to move as quietly as you can up a mountain in thick brush, find some kind of hiding place so you can get up to them, keeping in mind you have to be down wind from them so they don't smell you, then you sit and wait until you see one. Once you see a deer or elk your heart starts pounding and you get super nerves as they take steps towards you. You have to draw your bow as quietly as you can aim and fire. Paul has done this for seven plus years, he has gone out and hit deer but then can't ever find them. I guess the hard part is shooting it in the right spot and hoping it bleeds and dies out in the open so you can find them. Last August he was successful in everything above for both a Deer and a Elk. We are so proud of you our mighty hunter.Wyatt and I were sitting on the coach right under the huge thing. Wyatt says looking up at the deer "does it talk?"

*We were playing the new Candyland board game. The little people are different color kids. Wyatt said "I wanted to be the chocolate boy."
*We were driving in grandpa's car. Wyatt said "I have something in my shoe, Mom I have a foreigner in my shoe."
*For a few days Wyatt had some smelly gas. His Dad would say your burning my nostrils. Wyatt thought that was so funny. So he would gas and wait for his dad to say "your burning my nostrils" Wyatt then would say "that's the spirit"
*Dean was on my bed playing, and he tried to scoot down off the bed. Dean got stuck between the bed and the foot board. As you can see Wyatt took this opportunity to mess with him.

Saturday Paul's brother Gary got a puppy. It is the cutest little dog. It is so cute, we thought for one second about getting one. Her name is Daisy, she is part beagle and part pug. Gary said she is good. We all think a dog will be good for Gary, to learn to take care of something that needs a lot of attention. Gary said himself "now I am one step closer to a wife and kids." I think he is very brave for taking on a puppy. Puppy's are in some ways harder then babies. We went out to his place on Sunday. He said he had to get up two times that night to let Daisy out, and she wouldn't let him watch the Jazz game. GOOD LUCK GARY AND DAISY!!! you're going to need it.

It is finally feeling like spring.We had Alena with us all day. We love when she is around. Wyatt and her love to play. It was so nice outside in the morning. They road bikes and drew on the side walk with chalk. Then we went to Thanksgiving Point Farm. They had baby lambs, goats, and cows. The kids will never get sick of the farm animals. I swear we could go every day and they would still love it.

CRAP, CRAP, CRAP, that's what most, if not all, is. BUT some times you can find a treasure under some old gold picture frame or next to a healthrider. When you find some thing so cool that you would never have seen it at the store or you get something for the best price, you are so so happy. For those that do go, the best sales are the multiple family sales. To day we looked for 30 minutes before we saw a sale. It's still early in the year. We came to a big one out in the Ranches for a little girl with Cancer. We didn't get there until 9:30 or so. We ran into Ryan (Paul's brother) and he had a arm full of treasures. Ryan said we just missed Dan, Dayna, and Tawnie. I am telling you the Gillespie fam' loves yard sales. We went in, they had lots and lots of stuff. Paul got a hunting game for his PlayStation. Wyatt and Dean got a bag full of cars from the movie "Cars," each one at the store is more than 3 bucks and there were 10 or more in the bag. We found a Transformer for Wyatt. The best find of the day was these cute chairs for the boys, the one needs to be fixed, but they are sweet. You can tell Dean and Wyatt love them.
