First time Sledding

We took the kids sledding this past weekend. Last year it snowed and snowed and we weren't prepared with the proper gear. This year we got the snow boots and snow pants and we haven't seen a single flake. So we decided to head up to the mountains to Hyak to do some sledding.

I think the trip was a success :)

A few more from our trip

Tommy gathered crowds wherever we went. The Guatemalans were in LOVE with our little guy. It was like we were traveling with a little celebrity. Everywhere we went the people wanted to see our little guy :)
Bananas anyone?

We went to IRTRA (a big water & amusement park) in Guatemala for 4 days.

Ellie started out a bit hesitant about going on a few of the rides, but after going once she couldn't get enough. I was happy she got over her fear!

Ellie couldn't get enough of the pool.
Grandma & Grandpa treating the grandkids to ice cream! It was a great way to cool off from the heat!
I couldn't believe how brave Ellie was! There is no way I would have let that bird on my hand!
Ellie loved this ride!

Ellie overcoming her fear of the pirate water bucket at the water park. She went on all of the water slides after that!
Tommy was an absolute angel the entire trip. He napped in the stroller the majority of the time. He was exhausted when we got home. He had to catch up on a lot of missed sleep.

Bowling 101

Hazel turned 5 this month. The Bagley's celebrated with a bowling party. Ellie was very excited for her first trip to the bowling alley.
Fun with friends

We started out the evening with Ellie's ball stopping half way down the lane and then coming back towards us. (Not a good thing). Midway through the evening Ellie got a strike. Not bad improvement. We all had fun. Brandon even got a turkey (3 strikes in row) !
