At the beginning you were given a boarding pass with the name of a passenger. Three of the four of ours died. What is really interesting is that the one who lived ran into a guy the day before the Titanic sailed who told here she would be a part of a great tragedy but she would survive. Isn't that crazy? Gives me the chills!
The kids favorite part was a 5ft tall ice berg, it was set at 32 degrees and the actual temp of the water the night the Titanic sank was 28. So we could see just how cold it was, they let you touch it and now you know why so many perished from hypothermia. It was so sad! We really enjoyed the exhibit. No cameras allowed so here are the kiddos outside!

Alicia face painting my babies! They look so cute. And thank you for making Spencer promise to clean it off for church Sunday! I love that my friends watch my back when I am not there. Good friends, really good friends.
The BIRTHDAY BOY, Happy Birthday Tanner!
I love his smile! The smile says it all.

MaKynzee and her basket..she was REALLY into the chocolate (her Grandma Bagshaw would be proud!)
The kids after church in their new Easter church clothes. Thanks Grandma and Papa Bowen!
We took family pictures of our little Easter crew, we missed Melanie and her kids they had to fly home earlier that morning! Dang work, it always gets in the way of being with family!
This is how all the eggs were hidden, plain view (it's best for 2-3.5 year olds). LOL
MaKynzee loading up her basket with help from Grandma Bowen!
Lukas had a blast, he kept saying "Look mommy more. I'll get em you just stay there." Yes, Mr. Independent. It was such fun and we really enjoyed seeing the sun even if it was freezing and there was lots of wind. The kiddos didn't care.
We had a most fabulous weekend. Thanks to Christina and Aunt Lisa for putting the party together. Thanks to Mom and Dad Bowen for spoiling us so good. Thanks to Mandy and Ian for coming and visiting. Just THANKS to my Father in Heaven for all my wonderful blessings...each and every one of YOU!

Yes, that is Lukas in Girl PJ's (yes they are too small but at this point I didn't care) and underneath that a good old fashion diaper! He was REALLY mad to say the least so I am hopeful :)
TA-DA! Luke's 1st goal!!! I was so excited because he didn't use his hands or anything. He got the ball and kicked it all the way down and in. GOOOOOOOOOOOAL!
Then Spencer got REALLY creative and made the anatomically correct! I made them smaller as not to offend the eyes!
Lukas showing off his plane. He was SO excited!
So as you can see nothing dull here at the Bagshaws!

This was my favorite ruin. They actually built into a boulder!
MaKynzee being way cute on the trail to the bridges.
MaKynzee and mommy climbing up the ladder. Going down to these bridges was CRAZY! You went down ladders, stairs and the whole time you were on the edge of a canyon. Great place for two toddlers, eh?
We finally made it to the bridge!! It was such an AWWW moment when you saw how big it was and think of how it was formed.
True to Bowen character we couldn't go home without someone getting hurt. I opened the Visitors Center door and banged Lukas in the head it wouldn't have done anything but he had his sunglasses on. I am sure he probably needed stitches or at least glue but we were 3 hours away from any town and who knows how long from a hospital. His whole face was bloody before I even knew where the cut was! He freaks, I mean FREAKS at the site of blood; nothing like his mother! He was pretty excited about his Diego band-aid though so it was "all better."

Now Hovenweep is really on the boarder of Utah and Colorado and so I am sure we kept going back and forth but the National Park is on and Indian Reservation so there were no signs. Except the ones that told us we were not welcome and this was not a "cross country road." The Ruins were AMAZING, we felt so close to the Book of Mormon stories and it all came alive for us. Lukas called the ruins "Castles" and was very intrigued by them. MaKynzee only had one goal in mind and that was to catch up to the dog that was in front of us. It was pretty cute and nice cause it made her walk fast and keep up.
NIGHT of TERROR in the LOU
So I got really sick and ended up in the pit toilet for like 4 hours...in, out, in out! It was awful! SO I just had those really bad tummy cramps and then the runs. I woke everybody up running back and forth to the bathroom. I thought I was going to die! I almost took my pillow and just slept in there...it was that BAD! So that is why the Bagshaw adventures ended a little early, we only got to see part of Canyonlands.
Day 4: Canyonlands and Newspaper Rock
The Newspaper Rock was a big hit for us. It was so amazing to see all those drawing and I am really into petroglyph so I was totally stoked. Canyonlands were beautiful! We didn't get to the northern part but we did see the Needles part. The "Needles" or these really tall rock formations were our favorite. Spencer loved the off road trail with all the scenery. He loves off roading but hates that I limit his adventures with my car sickness. Oh well! I must admit I enjoyed the road to. The things we got to see were just AHHHH.
Sorry I couldn't get the pictures to load. I'll try tomorrow.
