Saturday was one of our rare days above 70. So we decided to take advantage of the day and visit Tulip Town. It is only open during the month of April and we heard that it was beautiful. We ate luch in a town called La Conner, and they happened to be having a parade. Ella got a bunch of bouncy balls, necklaces and taffy that was being thrown from the fire trucks. It was a lot of fun. Then we went to find some tulips. We had some trouble finding tulip town, but found another field full of tulips to check out. Not all the tulips were in bloom, since it has been so cold, but it was still really pretty. Ella decided to give all of the tulips kisses, it was really cute. On our way out of town we stumbled across tulip town and decided to stop. There were booths, kites and tons of tulips. Ella had a lot of fun looking at all the different flowers.
We took Ella to the snow for the first time. She was not thrilled with the idea. She wouldn't touch it, she wouldn't sit in it and she did not want to sled. We decided that if she was going to cry she was at least going to have fun doing it, so we took her sledding down a hill. Which she liked while she was doing it. She said "I'm Flying." It was very cute. We were worried about their being enough snow, but we realized very quickly that we had nothing to worry about. There was plenty. Unlike California the mountains weren't packed. In fact most of the ski places weren't even open. We had an entire hill all to ourselves and we only saw about four other people the whole time we were at the mountain. All in all we had a great time. Here are some pictures of our day at the snow.
Well, our first Easter in Washington was a wet one! We still managed to BBQ our usual tri-tip, do an Easter egg hunt (inside), and have a great time. We went to church in the morning. Crystal sang with three other girls from the church and John preached (obviously). We had a huge brunch with the members of the church. It was a great time of fellowship. When we got home Ella opened her Easter basket. She loved her new bowls and Barney movies. We went to the Jensen's house for desert (before dinner) and had a great time playing Pirates Dice. When we got home, we had tri-tip and Ella did her Egg Hunt. It took her a second to get the hang of it, but she had a lot of fun once she figured it out. All of Ella's eggs were full of money so she spent a long time filling up her piggy when we were done. Here are some pictures from our fun day.
Well, we took Ella to Disneyland for the second time. She understood it a little better and didn't sleep through the whole thing. We planned to do the princess breakfast so that we could get our yearly Cinderella and Ella photo without any problems. Well, it turned out that the breakfast was VERY expensive and Cnderella wasn't even there! Needless to say it was a rought start to the morning. However, we were able to find Cinderella and get our picture taken early. Ella didn't really understand what was going on, and the rides kind of scared her. She did however LOVE standing in line, which was great because there are lots of those. Here are some pictures of our day at Dland.
I would like to welcome you to the first official LeProhon/Martinez family blog. We hope that this will be a place where you can get updates on what, where, when and why we are doing. We will be posting pictures, notes and any other information we think that you should know. So keep checking it out and we will keep it up to date.
