|Mallory's 5th grade Spring Program was tonight.|
|It was a patriotic themed program. |
The kids did a great job.
|Mallory did a great job of participating.|
|Hannah's Kindergarten Spring Program was tonight. She was very excited for this night and has been practicing her songs for weeks. She even had the chance to sing some of the songs on the radio with 3 of her classmates.|
The program was such a big deal for Hannah that we even went dress shopping.
|The whole class was full of performers. |
There was not a shy one in the bunch.
|Hannah's wavy hair and braids were courtesy of Jackie.|
|Hannah's class got to perform with boom-wackers.|
|Hannah was very intent on following her Music Teacher's instructions.|

|Great Grandma Shirley made the trip from Topeka to watch Hannah's program.|
|After returning from Colorado, we came home to all of our trees in bloom. The white mulberry was full of beautiful fragrant blooms.|
|The red bud tree was showing it's brilliant color as well.|
|We took the Cog Railway to the top of Pike's Peak while visiting Colorado Springs. We bought our tickets the night before which gave us some prime seating that day.|
|This was another of Hannah's picks for our Spring Break Trip.|
|The views were spectacular.|
|Mallory even enjoyed the ride.|
|Our train did break down midway up the mountain. After fearing that we would have to retreat back down and start again, the engineer proclaimed that the electrical problem had been fixed so we continued on.|
|Our view towards Colorado Springs.|
|It was cold and blustery at the peak. The temperature was 13 degrees with a wind chill of zero.|
|We had time to rest and adjust to the altitude in the gift shop.|
|Matthew and Hannah adjusted to the altitude much better than their parents.|
|Poor Mallory got very dizzy and actually fell down. She wasn't too sure of the awkward feeling at the peak.|
|Todd did buy some fresh donuts from the bakery.|
|Mallory and Hannah wanted some more proof of our venture to Pike's Peak.|
|Hannah with her scary bear face.|
|Here was our view on the descent down the mountain. Breathtaking!|
The 3 1/2 hour trip was well worth it!
