The Ostrich Farm

We have lived 25 minutes away from this ostrich farm/petting zoo for 3 years now and finally decided to go check it out.  After Spring Break, Alexa came home from school saying that "everyone else" in her class had gone there over the break and that we just HAD to go!
It turned out to be pretty fun!
The kiddos started out feeding the donkeys. The girls loved getting up close and personal but Barrett preferred to just watch!  There was one donkey (I think it might even be the lighter one in this picture) that would smile at you and he looks JUST like the donkey from Shrek when he does!  Hilarious!

They also have a big Monster Truck tour you can go on.  We tried it out and probably won't do it again until all the kiddos are older!  But it was still enjoyable.

We got to feed the ostriches...or go fishing for ostriches!! :-)

They had deer and goats.

Lorikeets, ducks, prairie dogs.  Lots to see and do!

Mortenson Family Easter Party

My little divas, all ready to head up to their cousins' house for some Easter fun!!
We went up to Darron and Ann's today for a big family Easter dinner and party.
The kiddos had so much fun playing games, hunting for eggs, and spending time with their cousins!

Thanks Darron & Ann for hosting!
We had a great time!
Happy Easter!

Alexa: The Writing Stage

I ABSOLUTELY love this new writing stage that Alexa is in.  Her learning to read and write this year has been sooooo much fun for me.  I'm constantly getting little love notes from her or finding gems like this:
"When Jesus died on the cross, he got nails on his hands and on his feet"
Very fitting for Easter this coming weekend!
