Even today, he is still proud of his little bag of goodies he got from the Dentist... actually, I think he took the sunglasses when he wasn't supposed to! Yikes! I might have to take those back! hah! Luke made me 'play dentist' this morning and clean & floss his teeth, it was awesome!

Luke had his very first Dentist cleaning and check-up yesterday! He was a little nervous, but shed only one tear as he sat and watched Ian getting his teeth cleaned. I had to sit with him, because he was scared. But the sunglasses he got to wear were awesome, and he liked that, and he got to watch cartoons, so that was even better! He did really well! No cavities! yeah!
But I don't think he really liked the flouride treatment... look at that FACE! ha! Classic.
Well, it was getting too long that the boys had seen the dentist, so we got them in! (thank you Dr.Sarver!) Ian did really well. He love getting his teeth cleaned and using the little suction tube. He was very brave, and said that the only part that hurt was when they used the 'scrapping tool'. (again, it's been a while and he had plaque!) But he did a great job!
They got to wear sunglasses for the bright light and watch Cartoon Network! Awesome!
Dave took the boys fishing this past week for the first time this spring! They liked it, I think! I think they like being out with Daddy too!
My little Mason is so stinkin' cute, so I had to post some cuteness!
Mason has some crazy hair, and this is sometimes what he looks like when he first wakes up from his afternoon nap!
Dave was playing around with him, and wrapped him up like a burrito in a warm blanket (it was cold that morning). He looks so cute just standing there staring into the abyss of the the tv! He likes to wear hats too - but not for long... what a cutie!
I have been getting stuff ready to put away in storage, and here, Mason thinks he's still a baby! um... you're a little big for that, son! He even was buckling himself in and turning it on to hear the music! so funny!

Saturday, we had the chance to go to Chicago for dinner with our good friends Shane and Isolde! It was so much fun! Dave and I have never been to dinner in Chicago, or at least I can't remember! We went to the Cheesecake Factory, right underneath the John Hancock Building, and it was AMAZING! The food was so yummy and I ate so much! And I still had half of my plate left! Yeah for leftovers! So I got the Crusted Chicken Romano with Pasta and Tomato Sauce, and Dave had the Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo with Sun Dried Tomatoes! So Yummy! Of course we didn't have room for dessert, but we got it anyway! I mean, we're at the Cheesecake Factory... we need to get some cheesecake!!! I got the red velvet layered cheesecake, and Dave got the snickers cheesecake... both were also AMAZING!! But I was so full, I could only eat about 1/3 of it! But it was fun! it was fun to be with our friends and talk without the kids butting in! haha!After we ate dinner, we walked down Michigan Avenue a little then walked over to Navy Pier! Dave has never been to Navy Pier, and I guess I didn't realize that! So it was fun to let him see all the fun things there. We took some fun pictures there, and then headed back to the parking garage. It was such a blast! Good friends, good food, good memories!

We had a great Easter Sunday and weekend! We were blessed to be able to watch General Conference for the LDS church at home this morning. What a great blessing to hear the words and instruction from a prophet of God and the general authorities!
We went to my mom's for lunch and had wonderful roast beef sandwiches and tons of other great food! YUM! Dave and I got to hide the easter eggs this year for the big hunt, but I guess we didn't do a great job... they got done pretty quickly! doh! But my boys had a great time! Once Mason discovered candy was in the eggs, he quickly shoved 4 jelly beans in his mouth! AH! He was drooling green drool in no time flat! Luke found a lot, and was proud that he got so many! I think he would have eaten all the candy in the bucket if I didn't stop him after about 7! I just know he would have thrown up if I didn't stop him! Ian had a good time finding his '2 eggs' that had money in them! I know he's growing up when he wants the money eggs more! haha! But it was a fun time... it was so windy outside, but at least the rain held off!
The kids getting ready for the hunt. Ian, Luke, and Mason, and their cousins, Trey, Caden and Jenna. Luke finds an egg in a SHOE! (who's not wearing their shoes!?!?)

After 3 kids, kitchen chairs with fabric surely do take a beating! So, I became very motivated yesterday and bought some fabric to recover my chairs! I have to say I'm pretty proud of myself, although, it's not very hard to do! The fact that I actually did it is awesome! Now that the new fabric is on, I do wish I would have gone with a solid color, but alas... the kids are still growing and constantly wiping messy fingers, spilling milk and whatever else to my chairs... so, hey... I may do this again in a few years anyway!
