Ella Bell is a whopping 6

Can this girl take a bad picture???

Ella turned 6 on March 18th. She shared a birthday party with Charlotte and Victoria and went swimming. She invited a couple of friends and had a great time. Ella loves to swim (would like to be a swim teacher when she grows up) so it was a great day for her. Thanks to Kate for helping me get a party planned :) it was the easiest most relaxed kid party yet. So what is Ella all about these days? She is still loving dance. She is in a cheer tumbling class right now but has told me that she would like to switch to Jazz. She can't help herself from getting her groove on when there is music playing. She loves school. She is doing great with her reading, I am very proud of her. And she has made many friends in her class. She is always happy to get up in the morning and get ready for school, thank goodness. She loves to do puzzles, paint, color, play computer games, and ride her scooter. I just signed her up for T-ball so we will see how that goes. She is pretty shy and timid at first with most things so I'm hoping she enjoys it. She gives the best loves and loves to snuggle. Her bed is full of stuffed animals, pillow pets, blankets etc, and she loves to burry herself in them to sleep. Love you Ella Rose Roger Bunzarellie :)

Down ta George

Steve had his first mt bike race of the season a couple of weekends ago and lucky us it was in St. George. The kids were out of school friday so we took off around lunch. Jared also did the race and since he is working in Phoenix he drove to St. George and Jenny rode down with us. The kids loved having Jenny in the car and now Ivy talks about our "next trip when Jenny can come". The weather was beautiful! Yay, I have been so sick of the cold this winter that it made it that much more fun to be outside at the race. Steve and Jared had a great time. Steve got a flat tire which slowed him down but he kept at it. I think he just enjoyed the fact that he was riding again. The kids had a picnic in the van while they waited for dad to come in. We got to swim a couple of times, go out to dinner with Jared and Jenny, we also went out with Brian and Cheryl, visited snow canyon, and pretty much just had a great time. Thanks to the Allens for sharing their condo with us, we love you so much. That race will definitely be a tradition for us :)
