Dino Days

On Sunday March 22nd we went to Dino Days at Sierra College. The college has a really neat museum and they host Dino Days every other year to earn money for the museum. Since Tyler is ridiculously into dinosaurs we thought this would be a perfect family outing.

There were all kinds of dinosaur creatures set up throughout the campus and Tyler wanted his picture with every one. I'm sure he'll look back at the pictures and know all the names.

There were lots of activities for the kids to take part in. One was cookie painting. The kids got some sugar cookies and were able to "paint" them with frosting.

There was also an area set up for the kids to be future paleontologists. The kids were given some "tools" and were able to unearth some bones of a dinosaur. Tyler was VERY serious about this task.

Lucy was very serious too...

The event also had face painting, so each child got a creature on their cheek. Lucy picked a butterfly and Tyler picked a T-Rex...of course. The scarier the better!

The kids really did get to do some neat things. They were able to make plaster of paris casts of dinosaur parts. Tyler got the leg bones of a dinosaur and Lucy got some teeth. The kids were also able to make a press in the clay and Tyler made a dinosaur footprint and Lucy made a trilobyte (if that's how you spell it). Mommy said troglobyte and Tyler corrected me. There was also a scary, scary dinosaur alive in a box and it would peek out, spit, or claw at the box it was in. We were so thankful it didn't get out of the box!

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Tyler's preschool has an event each month that the parents can participate in. This month is was a treasure hunt for gold and gold coins. A leprechaun left it in the play yard for the kids. They were given some crazy green hats to wear and all looked so cute.

Here is Tyler in his cute green hat.

These are Tyler's bestest friends at school...Corbin, Payton, and Enrique.

The Ferocious Foursome!

Happy 3rd Birthday Quillan!

February is Quillan's birthday month. We were excited to see our niece turn three. She's getting so big! We attended her birthday party this month and the kids had such a great time with their cousin.
Happy Birthday Quillan Jo

Hit that pinata!

(Her feet were squeezed into the jelly shoes Lucy wore to the party. They used to be Quillan's and I think she remembered them as her own. Her poor toes!)

Tyler was so patient and wanted to WHACK that Flounder.

Even Lucy got in on the action...

Best Buds!

Silly Kids!

I have some really silly kids. I have no idea where this comes from. Zach and I are VERY serious people and we never have any fun at all.

I haven't done an update in awhile and we have some new pictures, so this will be the first of a few posts about February and the goings on in the Guthmiller household.

First, we have dress up night. Well, Lucy dresses up and Tyler dresses down...

Then we have fun in our pajamas. The best part are the socks.

Lucy LOVES her click clacks. Loves them so much, in fact, that wearing one pair just isn't enough. I guess it makes more noise when you have two pairs.

Lucy ADORES her dollhouse. She has fun playing with the dolls and tucking them in. I think Tyler has fun destroying the dollhouse. Something about dinosaurs attacking...
