Right Now


-I'm sitting in my driveway in the minivan. Both kiddos fell asleep on the way home from a friend's and they desperately needed a nap, so here we sit for twenty minutes! ;)

-I found a spider in said van and killed it with my shoe. And now I feel itchy everywhere - ah! (I'm wimpy when it comes to creepy crawly things!)

-Half our house is packed up in boxes lined in the garage. The other half is scattered on every floor, it's somewhat of a nightmare, and I'm doing my best to avoid it...until the kids wake up. :)

-If you want to see what I look like at 8am in sweats and no makeup (ha, I know you do! ;) we're having a moving sale on Saturday! More details will be on instagram this week, but seriously, if you need some chairs, rugs, ottomans, or other miscellaneous items, come on by!

-80% of our dinners over the last month have been cheese quesadillas. Ha!

-Ellie calls our temporary housing "The Hotel." (It's actually student housing in Provo.) The only two times we've been there to bring over a few things she's cried - and plugged her nose the whole time.  Haha! I'm hoping her opinion changes a bit after a deep carpet clean and when the pool opens for the summer. ;)

-I could totally go for one of those donuts pictured above. And yes, Addie totally stole my donut and downed a lot most of it. A girl after my own heart. ;) 

And now I'm off to wake up these kiddos - so we're not up till midnight - and mop those floors. ;) Happy Wednesday! xo

Spring Adventure





If you know Ellie, you know she's always up for an "a-venture!" A few weeks ago, we decided to brave the April showers and head to our favorite local garden spot for a picnic. I wish I had a video of Ellie's excitement, you'd think I just told her we were headed to Disneyland! She carefully packed up her backpack with all the essentials - our picnic lunch, bubbles, umbrella, and of course, a princess crown. We rarely leave the house these days without that princess crown - either atop her head or tucked safely in her backpack. 


We ventured around the gardens for a bit, stalked a goose for a picture, smelled every flower, swatted away a few bees, and when Ellie and Addie were getting hungry, we all sat down for a little lunch. Easter just about did us in with all that sugar, so we've hidden the rest of the Easter candy on the top shelf of the pantry so a certain three year old can't find get into it. ;) Ellie helped pick out everything we brought to our picnic - a turkey/roastbeef sandwich with veggies, cut up apple slices, a few veggie straws, and our favorite, Capri Sun Organic juice drink. (With no added sugar, artificial coloring, and contains one serving of fruit in each pouch - Each pouch provides 1/2 cup fruit juice which is one serving of fruit according to the U.S. Dietary Guidelines, they're a must have for every picnic!)


 We finished our garden adventure rolling the stroller through the mud (oops!), Addie snuggled up in the stroller ready for a nap, and Ellie telling me how she wishes she was a bee so she "could fly in flowers too." Ha! The minute we loaded up the stroller in the trunk, and the girls in their car seats, it started to rain again. Nailed that outing! ;)

Rainy Roadtrip


While Brian's parents were in town this month, we decided to take a Zurcher family roadtrip! They hadn't visited St. George and April was a perfect time to take them before it got too hot. ;) We loaded up the mini vans with snacks and packed lunches and waterbottles, and trekked a few hours down south.


Sadly our plan to show them "sunny St. George" turned into "wow it actually rains here in St. George" type of weekend. ;) The first two days it poured! We found a few indoor activities - the Brigham Young winter home, Children's museum, and the Tabernacle. In between the rain storms, the kids would beg to go to the pool, so we would! And we had it all to ourselves. :) I also took the girls to some of our favorite shops downtown - if you're ever in the area, check out Urban Renewal - my fav! 


Sunday came around and it was GLORIOUS. We went to a church meeting in the morning and walked around the temple grounds after. A picnic lunch later and one last chance for the kids to get out their wiggles, and then we hit the road home....back to more rain. Ha! :) It was fun showing them our soon-to-be town and spending some quality time with the fam. :)

P.S. We adored the Children's Museum (Ellie could have stayed there for hours!) Great place to take the kiddos, especially on rainy days! ;)
