Snowball Fight

Snowball Fight

The past two years (before that the bush was too small) we have continued the tradition of the annual Smith Family Snowball Fight. It is always a lot of fun and you get to do it in warm weather while wearing shorts and flip flops.

Brenner got it good!
The kids and their Easter Bunny teeth- Thanks for the package Grams and Pa!

One of our favorite families in the ward, the Taylor's, are moving to Southern Georgia and this is a picture of all the kids eating ice cream one last time. So sad, they will be missed! =(

Decorating Easter Eggs.

Easter Morning.

The kids were not very excited about church at 9:00. They wiped of the chocolate Easter bunny from their faces and this is what we got- not to bad!

Picking strawberries at the strawberry fields.

Mia and Daddy and a big strawberry!

Atlanta Temple Open House

The Atlanta temple has been closed for almost two years for a renovation project. It is now done and it is beautiful! The kids all walked through and they thought that it was amazing. Mia loved the brides room, Brenner thought that the chandeliers were very pretty and Cayden thought that the new "green" stained glass throughout was spectacular. They really did a great job, and it is truly a beautiful building and ultimately the "House of God".

The whole walk through crew.

It will be nice to once again have "our" temple open so close to us so we don't have to drive 3+ hours to another. They say that you don't miss something until it is gone, and this could not be more true of our temple.

Spring Break- Disney Style!

Spring Break at Disney World.

We were invited again to go down to Orlando with the Browns, and of course we said yes! It was over the kids spring break from school and we had a blast. Although over the years we have decided that Disney is not a relaxing vacation, it is allot of running around, waiting in lines and very long days. But it is truly allot of fun!The Castle Picture.

Ice cream anyone! Daddy and Mia in front of "It's a small world". This became her fourth or fifth favorite after Pirates, Splash Mountain, the Tea Cups and Thunder Mountain Railroad. She has become quite a little thrill junkie! All the kids (minus the Browns as they went to Universal this day) waiting to ride the Buz Light year ride.
The electric parade is back this year with the fun music and all. Nikki was our parade spot holder, and beat several people from our spots each day as the kids and I rode rides, Go Mommy!
Mia and a Mickey Treat!
At Disney's Hollywood Studios. The Rockin Roller Coaster was the favorite of all!
Our last day in Animal Kingdom.

This is Daddy's favorite park of the bunch, with the Safari, Mount Everest and the Nemo Show!

We all had so much fun over the week, and I think that it will be our last Disney Vacation for some time to come!
