The month of April

Since I can't seem to update daily or weekly, maybe I'll shoot for monthly? :)

At the beginning of the month I hosted a mother's group where we did an easter egg hunt around the complex.
^Sarah had many egg hunts. She was a pro by the end.

^Our monthly cookie making day! Always fun!
^Nimbus sporting Sarah's new easter sunglasses. :)
^Sarah at one of the many house hunts we went on. What a trooper!
Melissa, Briana & Forrest came for Easter weekend so we went to the city!
^We rode the cable cars for the first time.
Ed also took the kids to Santa Cruz to surf, ride the boardwalk, and we went to dinner.
^After the day in the city. Melissa & the kids did Alcatraz, we went to Union Square & Ghirardelli Square.
^Family Easter pics

^Our little bunny
^She loved opening the eggs, but wasn't too fond of easter candy? Good for us and her I suppose. :)
^Since I most likely won't be traveling the rest of the summer due to our new arrival in July and I hadn't seen family since Christmas, mid-April I decided to take Sarah with me to UT to visit family/friends. Ed was nice and stayed home and worked.
^As usual I got to see a lot of girlfriends. I forgot to take pics of every outing, but it's always nice to see friends.
^Dad ran the Salt Lake City 1/2 Marathon in about 55 min. Good job Dad!!  I ran the 5k. With prego running I had no specific time goal, but finished around 40 min after losing my cell phone in the first 5 min and trying to run back and find it. Someone turned it in at the end. Thank goodness!
After the race Grandma, Debbie, Elle and Sarah & I went to Wheeler Farm to see the animals.
^We had a good time, but lost energy quickly. Sarah threw her first big tantrum on the way home. :( Yikes!
^I got together with the Birch Creek crew for lunch. Kathy, Kristy and Kira! All girls I met in CA that now live in UT. Maybe I'll join you someday?
^Tanji came up, we got yogurt and took the kids to the park. Sarah likes to kiss and hold hands. We'll have to keep an eye on her when she gets older. :)
^Tanji, Jay, Sarah and I.
^Another day we met up with Nicole at the park to play with Sarah's cousins Felicity & Josh. 
^Steph came for a visit. Always feels like nothing's changed when I see this girl.
^Debbie and Elle had some sleepovers at Grandma's with us- so the girls had a bath buddy.
^Grandma was a great host! Thanks mom!

The end of the trip I had planned to go to Vegas with some girlfriends and leave Sarah home, but because of driving conflicts didn't end up going. 3 days longer than I would have stayed in UT, but at least I got to see more family. Vegas isn't my favorite anyway. 

^Sarah acted up and showed more attitude and sass in UT than I've ever seen. I thought we were entering terrible 2's early, but I'm pretty sure she was sick. She threw up in her crib (notice in her hair) a day after we got back and since then has been much more manageable. Note: Throw up is much grosser than poo. Luckily Ed was home that morning and helped clean it up. 
^Jennie came to visit SF for work so we went to a Giants game with her work buddies.
