 Stella had a cold and cough early last week.  She passed it along to Bronson, and he ended up in the hospital again.  I scheduled an appointment for Bronson last Friday because he was looking so poorly.  When we went to the office, his oxygen saturation was in the low 70s, so off to hospital we went.  He didn't have pneumonia, the flu, or RSV.  Instead, the doctors thought his reactive airway disease was flaring up again.  They put him on several medications in addition to oxygen.  We are home now, and Bronson is going to have to use an inhaler for the foreseeable future.  We are hoping the inhaler combined with his breathing treatments will keep us out of the hospital in the future. 
 Yesterday afternoon, Stella cuddled up under some of her blankets and took a snooze on the couch downstairs.  When I was upstairs, Bradford put a squig on Stella's forehead while she was sleeping.  He laughed and laughed about it all afternoon.

Spring Break 2015

 We spent spring break in St. George.  It was so hard for me to come back to Laramie after our trip.  It was so nice to spend time with family in beautiful weather.  It took a while for Bronson to warm up to my parents, but he liked wearing Grandpa's hat. 
 We took my friend from Laramie, Vicki, to see Toroweap, an overlook on the north rim of the Grand Canyon.  My dad took Stella to the very edge of the overlook.  They were a couple feet away from a sheer 3,000 foot drop off to the Colorado River below.  I didn't get quite as close to the edge. 

 The kids loved playing "down off the hill."

Stella was my dad's girl one day.  She worked with him all day and came home looking pretty dirty as can be seen below. 

 Stella loved climbing Grandma Bundy's trees. 

 Katie came to visit with her kids.  Stella had a blast with them. 

 Stella sang "Teeter-totter, bread and water..." every day we were down there. 

 Stella pulled Bronson all the way up the hill by herself.  This picture doesn't do the hill justice.  She kept reminding me not to help her.  She wanted to do it herself so she could get "stronger and stronger."
 Bradford and Phillip joined us in St. George on Saturday evening. 
 Here's all the family making their way over to my grandma's house.  It's good to know the Sunday evening family chat and ice cream social is still going strong. 

 Stella was so determined to finish this puzzle.  She put all the pieces together by herself, obviously.  It took me awhile to realize it was supposed to be a world map. 
 Andee and Brock made it to St. George on Monday evening.  Stella was so excited to see Andee. 
 Bradford wanted to take several pictures with Brock. 
 Aunt Abby did Stella and Andee's hair the same one day. 

 All the cousins got together once again to celebrate Abby's birthday. 

 Good burger. 
 Good bottle. 
 Green for St. Patrick's Day. 

 We had to continue the same hair as Andee trend. 

 They liked to hold hands and dance together. 

 Brand new baby goats.  Some of these pictures make it glaringly clear that they were born that same day...sorry. 

Stella and Andee laughed and talked at the window of the playhouse for about twenty minutes.  It was really cute to watch.

Regional Basketball and Visitors

We went to Lander, Wyoming last weekend to watch Aunt Diana play basketball at the regional tournament.  The kids were so excited to see Grandma Davidson, Aunt Diana, and Uncle Todd.  Thanks for everything Anne; it was great to see you!

Two Fridays ago, Aunt Margie and Uncle Bob stopped off in Laramie to see us on their way down to Fort Collins.  I was so excited to see them. Thanks again for stopping by and for taking us out to dinner!  We love you!  Can't wait to see you again over spring break.
