New Neptune Park

A few months ago a new park was built close by...It really is the COOLEST park ever built!  They call it 'Neptune Park' and it is part of Saratoga Springs City and its about 2 miles from our house.

The best thing at Neptune Park is this amazing pyramid rope coarse, Les climbed it one took him several minutes. I was only able to get half way before I was too scared I wasn't going to be able to get down.

Brandon can climb to the very top in about 30 seconds I'm not sure how tall it is, but I would guess it's about 40 feet to the top (?)  Apparently it is the only structure of it's kind in the Western Hemisphere.

Carson can only get this far ;-)

There are some really great equipment at Neptune Park, there is something for toddlers to adults...swings, slides, jungle gyms etc.  There is even a pretty amazing basketball court, that has goals for all sizes from little guys (about 7ft) to Pro size (10ft) the Basketball courts were built through a donations by the Utah Jazz so it makes sense that at the 'Grand Opening' and ribbon cutting ceremony yesterday that the Jazz was a part of the celebration!

The boys got to meet and get an autograph from the Jazz mascot 'Bear'

There were a TON of people there and we had to wait in a line, but the boys were so excited about it, they are pretty big Jazz fans!

 They were handing out a Jazz magazine that has information about each player and the team history. The Jazz also sent one of the players Josh Howard #8, Brandon was especially excited to get to meet him and get his autograph on his page in the book....Brandon has set a goal to get each of the players autographs in that book and when he grows up he wants to play for the Utah Jazz!!


It has been finally warming up and so the boys got out there swim trunks (while they had the chance) and ran through the water in the sunshine....

They ran so fast cause the water wasn't exactly warm



Me, enjoying the sunshine ;-) I LOVE the bright summer colors!

I'm so glad the boys got the chance to play in the of today it is overcast and breezy, we are expecting rain soon.

This year we had a very simple Easter.  We wanted the boys to really understand what Easter if for, so for the first time they received a picture of Christ leaving the tomb.  I think they understood, but at any rate this will be a tradition from now on!

Our handsome boys ready for Easter Sunday at Church

Brandon Dale 9yrs old

Carson David 5yrs old

I can't believe they are so big and handsome!

We did have a small Easter egg hunt in the front yard....
(With the crazy Utah weather we had snow the Friday before Easter so our poor grass is still trying to recover, and it had just been aerated so there are little dirt clods all over...It was not ideal for an Easter egg hunt)
