Kylan skipped feeding cows with Tim this morning to stay home and play with Ila. He even helped her get all dressed up like a princess and had a picnic with her in the playroom! How were we so blessed to have him as the oldest child?!

Here are some more pictures from my phone in March:
I believe this was while Emmit was sick:
Playing with Grandpa and Grandma's puppies
Napping with Grandma:
When we went Birthday shopping for Ky it just so happened that Uncle Derild and Aunt Lynne were also going to Reno so they took Ky and Mya with them (which was the best trip to Reno even according to those two) and we took the little ones with us! It was fun!
Ila thinking about crawling!
Ila's first bath not by herself! She loved it!

At the end of March Rachel and her kids came for their spring break to Fallon. We had so much fun with them! Since Ky's birthday party was already postponed due to illness, we had his birthday party while they were here! He loved it!
We also had tball opening ceremonies while they were here.
Grandpa set up a shooting thing for the boys to shoot at with their bb guns. He and grandma bought cheap soda and the boys shot at the shaken up cans. They loved it!
They left a couple days before Easter so we had a great big easter egg hunt before they took off. Here are all the cousins.
Grandma and Grandpa with all the grandkids.
And the siblings who were still around.

We've done the normal stomach flu more times than I can count, but in March we had the REAL flu and it was terrible! Emmit was the first to get it and the poor kid had it the worst of anyone. I knew we had been exposed to it, but the first time I took Emmit into the doctor they didn't run the test for it. The next day his fever was worse, he had been up most of the night and his little body hurt so badly that I couldn't even touch him. Needless to say I ran him back in and the test - that is supposed to take 15 mins to get results from - came back very positive for Influenza B in a matter of seconds! He took Tamiflu although it was probably too late and didn't help much. This stuff is very very very contagious, and both Tim and Ila ended up getting it as well. We pretty much stayed in our house for almost two weeks! Tim said he has never been so miserable or had his body hurt so badly in his life!
We may consider flu shots next year!

On March 15 Kylan turned 6! Unfortunately his birthday landed right in the middle of our flu epidemic, however we still tried to make it special for him. I took donuts to his class for his birthday helper day, he got a special package in the mail from Uncle Kent and Aunt Stacey, he opened presents from us, and I made him the camo cupcakes that I was going to make for his class, but decided it wouldn't be good to bring homemade cupcakes with the germs in our house!
At 6 years old Ky's favorites are:
*favorite color: yellow and every color except pink and purple
*favorite food: Mac n cheese and crab cheese puffs from The Wok
*favorite animal: doesn't know
*favorite thing to play: dump trucks
*best friend: Braden, Drake and Nate
*Loves playing golf, basketball and riding his scooter
