Easter Weekend

Easter weekend started with a family day on Friday. Trevor and I both had the day off and wanted to do something fun with the kids. Since it was cold and wet we decided to check out Kiddywampus. This is a place you can bring kids to do art and play time. They supply you with everything you need and the best part is the mess stays there.

Ben took a few minutes to warm up but then he let the creative juices flow!

Olivia did her share of getting messy while making some beautiful art.

Easter Morning

What is Easter morning without Easter Baskets? The kids could not wait to see what the Easter Bunny brought them.

It took Olivia no time at all to get those eggs open and enjoy the candy inside. I could not reach her fast enough and she had not 1, not 2, but three mini whopper eggs shoved in her mouth.

After church we had a nice brunch with the Knight family at the Original Pancake House. Then we headed to "Grandpa and Grandma across the street" for the Easter Egg Hunt! But before the hunt the kids got more goodies. Apparently the Easter Bunny also leaves the kids baskets at each Grandparents' house.

Ben got this "Joe Mauer" outfit in his helmet basket and he has not taken it off since!

Ben loved the egg hunt. This year he needed little help to find all 20 eggs.

The hunt came to a sudden halt when Ben went running to his sister so excited to show her his latest find. I guess in light of the holiday he thought he could walk on water just like Jesus and into the pool he went! Luckily the cover allows only a little give and he only ended up with wet pants. As a side note his sister did the same thing about 20minutes prior to Ben's fall.

Last week Olivia had her first Freezee. I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing? When Ben was little he would ask for a Freezee at 6:00am as soon as his eyes were open. So in true big brother form Ben showed Olivia how it was done!

Olivia is very independent and does not like help with anything! So she did it all on her own and got every last drop.

YUM!! Can't wait for the next one!

Spring Time Fun

This is what happens when Olivia is left too long with her yogurt dish. Yogurt is her stand by food. If we can't get her to eat anything else yogurt will always do the trick.

Then it is straight to the tub!

Last weekend we had the Murray family over for a little play date and pizza dinner. We managed to get at least one picture will all 4 of them looking at the camera. Oh, how things have changed in the last 16th months.

With the nice spring weather the kids are loving the fresh air. We spent some time outside at "Grandpa and Grandma's across the street". Olivia loves the swing and just giggles the whole time.

Ben as always loves any running and climbing he can do and the faster and higher the better!
