Puerto Vallarta

Hola from Puerto Vallarta!

In Mazatlan we went on the "Best of Mazatlan Tour". The tour took us to a beautiful old cathedral, the cliff divers of Mazatlan, to a great little cafe for a margarita, to a show, and finally to a beautiful resort for some fun in the sun! The kids got a little antsy on the tour but they loved the beach and the resort!

Here we are in Cabo San Lucas playing with the local wildlife. YIKES!!!

Last week we took a cruise to the Mexican Riviera. We had a great (and exhausting) time! We cruised with Holland American Cruiseline which we highly recommend! The staterooms were great and their were a lot of amenities!
Here are some pictures from our trip! Enjoy!!!

Jaeda was in her school's talent show on Thursday, March 20th. The "Best Friends" dance group consisted of Jaeda, Hailey, Destany, Madaline, Alexis, and Chloe. They were so cute and they had a great time. Hollywood here Jaeda comes! :)

Joshua's First Baseball Game

Joshua had his first T-Ball game this weekend! He had a blast although he did spend part of the time complaining that he was hungry and tired :). He played outfield, catcher, and second base. Doesn't he look cute in her uniform?

Hello and Welcome

Hello Family and Friends,

Time flies and life gets crazy. Every day I look at my kids and I can't believe how fast they are growing! In my busy life I find it so hard to keep in touch! So I have decided to try a blog as a way to keep everyone up to date on the happenings of the Hyden 5! I will do my best to update it weekly with pictures and new info about the kids. Read it as often as you like and respond if you want! I hope you enjoy it and visit often.

So here it goes.....Jaeda is now 7 and in second grade. Her favorite subjects are math and recess! he he! She recently auditioned for her schools talent show and was selected. Her and five of her friends are doing a cute little dance they came up with. For those of you who are local, the performance is Thursday, March 20th at 6:00pm. Jaeda is also a Brownie Girl Scout and she recently started violin lessons. I promise not to send audio for at least a few months! :)

Joshua is 4 and as active as ever! He has his first T-Ball game this Saturday....GO CARDINALS! Josh is also getting ready to start kindergarten in the fall. He is so excited to go to school with his big sis! He spends most of his days practicing baseball, riding his bike, playing with his cousin Jedi and playing his favorite new role of big brother to his little sister Haley.

Haley is 16 months already. She is a great combination of Jaeda and Josh. She looks exactly like Jaeda did at her age (except the curly hair) and has her loving spirit but her personality and energy is all Josh. She is playful and goofy! She is walking and has started to talk. Her favorite words are Sissy and Josh, surprise. surprise! Haley is a ball of energy but lots of fun!

Matt is busy growing his business and business is good. Builders Marketing Group continues to re-invent itself as the market changes. They recently purchased a sign shop and now have the ability to sell marketing products to all different types of businesses. They also recently launched the New Home Map Guide which as an innovative new marketing tool for homebuilders. For more on what Matt is up to you can visit!

And as for me, I am as busy as ever! I recently went back to school to work towards earning my multiple subject teaching credential. On top of being a student I am on the PTA board at Jaeda's school, I am a troop leader for Jaeda's Girl Scout troop, team mom for Joshua's T-Ball team, and I have recently began to volunteer for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Wow! It's a lot of work but I love every minute of it!

Well, thanks for reading our little blog. We hope you like it and visit often.

I love you all and remember.....with the love of a good family, all things are possible.
