Dinosaur Park

With the weather so beautiful, we decided to go to the Dinosaur Park for a fun activity. We had so much FUN!!! What a special time to be able to have four generations all together. Thanks for the fun!

Yes, the sign is correct and he lives in my house!

Popsicles to cool down before heading home!

I know that was a picture overload, but I couldn't decide on fewer.

Playing with blocks
The laundry basket was in the family room waiting to go back down stairs. Zach asked if he could dump his blocks in the basket while he was playing. I said that was fine, but when I returned I found him in the basket also. I am not sure that it would have been that comfortable sitting on the blocks but he didn't seem to mind.

Playing Mario Kart
He loves to play with his dad, but he also enjoys playing by himself. He is not very good but that doesn't stop him. He just keeps trying! And, at least, he hasn't picked up his dad's habit of playing with his tongue out.

Easter Evening

One last Easter post and then I will be done. Easter evening was spent at Aaron's parents house. We had wonderful Chicken Cordon Bleu for dinner, a big labor of love from my father in law Tom. Obviously I like holidays that revolve around food.

We watched home movies on the old projector. While Aaron was trying to get it set up, we were enjoying shadow animals and Tracy showing Maddie how Stephanie traced her kids profiles when they were younger. I admit that I was not excited about home movies, but it was really fun to see how our kids resembled their parents at a young age. To quote my husband, "I was just as obnoxious as Zach!" Plus it is always nice to see Tyler talk about Vanessa.

This is the dessert that I made.

Easter Brunch

Every year on Easter we have brunch with my extended family. It is one of my favorite gatherings. My grandma makes delicious biscuits and gravy, my mom makes the best homemade sweet rolls and bunny rolls, and then there is always more tasty food that changes every year. I love breakfast foods!

The running of the eggs!

"Cleaning up" the plastic eggs!

Easter Morning

Easter morning was so much fun!! Zach really got into it this year and had this wonderful smile every time he spotted a hidden object. He really thought the Easter Bunny was silly!! He also informed me that the Easter Bunny drives a special car to bring his Easter basket. (These pics are from the new camera, Ash.)
