I love Spring.

The weather is happy, sunny, but not too hot (well at least for the next couple of weeks). But oh my goodness Spring does not like me!  I have had horrible allergies since about the beginning of March!  Nevertheless, we are out and about. Enjoying it while we can.  I started taking Collin on morning walks and he loves them! IMG_8113However he doesn’t look too thrilled with me for taking his picture .IMG_8114

The week before Easter our church had an egg hunt.IMG_8129IMG_8133IMG_8135IMG_8137

Collin met the Easter Bunny for the first time



Jack had an “oval” hunt with his PreK class. They had about 1000 eggs brought in between the two classes!  He supplied our candy bowl very nicely!!IMG_8162IMG_8156

On Friday, Hailey got together with her Daisy troop for an egg hunt.  First they planted a cherry blossom tree at the Girl Scout house on base. IMG_8170IMG_8166IMG_8173

Saturday night we dyed our eggs.  The kids were not as into it as I thought they would be…. but we got it done.  You would have thought it was Christmas Eve the way the ran to bed so the Easter Bunny would come!  I didn’t get pictures of them with their baskets :( Sunday mornings are so busy!  I’m already dreading Christmas morning before Bible School this year… I’m thinking we’ll wait till after church!IMG_8178

Hope all of you had a wonderful weekend with friends and family.  I’m so thankful to God for all of our blessings!IMG_8181

Papa’s Birthday

I posted these pictures and video on FB a while ago but wanted to put them here too….. So if you’ve already seen them just disregard.  But they are really cute so you just might want to look at them again!

For Papa’s birthday we had an angel food cake with strawberries and cool whip.  As you’ll see, Collin thought it was awesome!
