Happy Easter 2013

So Easter started a little early this year.  The girls had an Easter party at school on Friday, so I thought it would be fun to make some bunny crayons.  I think they turned out really cute.

Another fun thing we did this year was planting magical jelly beans.  It was a fun project that you ladies were excited to see.  It was really fun to check the containers to see what was growing.
While you ladies were sleeping the Easter bunny came and left some goodies.

Holiday's are so much fun these days.  You ladies are so excited and you talk about the holiday for weeks leading up to it.  We had a lot of fun this morning see what the Easter Bunny left.    We had to leave the bunny presents because we were going to breakfast with Grandma, Toni, Jason and Jennifer.  We had an impromptu photo shoot before we left for breakfast.

While you ladies were napping, the easter bunny hopped back to our house and hid the eggs that he borrowed last night.

 It was a fun hunt.  We went inside to scope out all our goodies.

What a fun day.  I found this quote and it really sums up today.

There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again.  ~Elizabeth Lawrence

Spring has Sprung

Today was a great day...spring has finally sprung.  Well I guess officially it sprung earlier, but it was during the week and today was a weekend and we took full advantage of this beautiful day.  It started out early with Daddy running in the 6th Annual Autism 5K.  Daddy had to leave early to go register so we met him before the race started.

We got there while the 1 mile race was still going on, so we got to cheer on the racers.

Once the 1-mile race was over they had a warm-up, and then it was race time.
headed into the shoot.

and away he goes.....

see you in 3.1 miles daddy :)

While daddy was running they had some activities to keep you ladies busy; facepainting and easter egg hunt and arts and crafts.

We went to wait for daddy, and then the storm trooper arrived.

almost there daddy

So after lunch and naps we decided to take advantage of this amazing day and went to the playground.  We had not been to this one, and it was a lot of fun.  There were all kinds of things for you ladies to do.
