Yellowstone - April 2010

A little glimpse at our fun weekend. . .

Idaho Ballroom Academy

Meghan and Anthony have really enjoyed taking ballroom classes for the last six weeks. They performed their dances this weekend. Anthony's class danced to "Cruella De Vil" (the boys were dalmations and the girls Cruella). Meghan's age group consisted to 3 classes of 3rd and 4th graders. They danced to the Chipmunk's "Shake Your Groove Thing". Each class had a different chipmunk color (Meghan's class was red).

It was really fun to see all the different age groups perform. The kids want to continue to take classes next year, too. We'll post video when we can figure out how to get it off our new camera.

Waiting for the performance to begin.

Blast Off

With the University on Spring Break we were able to take some time to do a few fun things as a family this week.

We went to Blast Off in Idaho Falls and had the whole place to ourselves (one advantage to going at off hours).

Easter 2010

We really enjoyed a relaxing, inspirational Easter weekend. I loved having general conference coincide with Easter this year. As always, the talks were wonderful and it was a much need break from the norm.

A couple yummy treats we enjoyed:

Kris' French Bread~

1 T shortening
1 T salt
1 T sugar
1 cup boiling water
1 cup cold water
1 T active dry yeast
5 1/2 cups flour
1 egg white

Place shortening, salt, sugar, and boiling water in bowl (or bread machine) until shortening is melted. Add cold water, then yeast. When it bubbles, stir in flour gradually. Knead for 5 minutes. Place dough in a greased bowl to rise until double (about 1 hour). Punch down, then shape into 2 long loaves. Place on a greased cookie sheet to rise for 30 minutes. Brush with egg white and slash 3 times diagonally. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. ~Makes 2 loaves
