Bunny hill and egg hunts

We had an adventure to Bunny Hill and got a cute Easter picture! This is a cute little park in our town and it turned out better than expected! Very springy!
We had several egg hunts and we had so much fun
My sweet superhero loved looking for eggs
Kaitlin had a great time
She was quite concerned about cracking the real eggs and Colin loved smashing the eggs. So funny the difference between boys and girls!

Kaitlin is already excited about next years egg hunt!

Spring is here

We are so excited that spring is finally here in Ohio. Flowers are starting to bloom and the grass is finally green!
We didn't even have to wear a sweater to church
Colin in his spring finest
I just think they look like spring
We helped with setup and our kids were so good while we worked
I think they also had a lot of fun!

Birthday week

We have had a very busy birthday week! Kory celebrated his birthday this week and we had a great birthday dinner!
We love the birthday boy!
Kaitlin is so grown up these days and it so amazing to see her as a little girl and not a baby
They studied bugs last week and was so proud her ladybug made the bulletin board!
Ice cream treat for a great week!

We had a wonderful Easter at church! Colin started crying walking into church so he did not last long. It was the second year for Easter in the car. I have so many pictures from the day and it was so special.
My sweet bunnies in their matching bunny pajamas!
Two kids looking at the camera. And looking happy!
Kaitlin picked out her dress and she was so proud
Our sweet friends from church had us over for an amazing lunch. It was so fun and really made Ohio feel a little like home for the first time! She went all out and made everything so special. It was such a blessing.
Tired boy from all the Easter fun!

Easter weekend fun

We had a busy weekend with lots of Easter fun! We saw the Easter Bunny on Friday! Kaitlin was thrilled to visit with the big guy. Colin wanted nothing to do with him!
Kaitlin and I dyed eggs and had so much fun.
She worked very hard on our eggs.
Sometimes your apron turns into a cape!
We also made some bunny cupcakes
Kaitlin was so proud
I saw in a magazine 15 years ago that grew Easter grass in a basket! I have always wanted to try it so I did this year and it actually worked! So easy and so festive!

We had a wonderful weekend with lots of family Easter fun!

Life lately

Life has been wild and crazy around here! It is finally spring in Ohio and we have loved being outside! It is amazing how fast this year is flying by and that Easter is just a week away!
It has been super windy and the wind brought a new friend to our backyard. The kids had so much fun with turtle! He has gone away now, the wind took him home but we need to buy a replacement friend!
Taking some time for hugs!
They love each other so much
Colin looked so big leaving school this week!
My boys before bed
We did some Sunday driving a few weeks ago and stopped for an early dinner! It was also kids eat free night. We rarely do things like this without planning so it was an unexpected surprise!
We got some ice cream at Graeters and it was amazing! They even made a special face sundae for Kaitlin with eyes, a mouth and a nose! It was so adorable and totally freaked her out! She removed it then enjoyed her icecream,

Can't wait to go back there soon!
