Happy 3rd Birthday!!!

We celebrated Colton and Sulley's 3rd birthday as a family! After having cupcakes with family on Easter, cupcakes with classmates at school, and cupcakes at home, they were almost burned out on them! It was a great day though - we took them to McDonalds for play and dinner per their request. We hope to have a party at the end of summer!

As if we didn't have enough easter activities, we decided to add more more to the mix - easter egg dying. it's not easter unless you dye some eggs so this year we went with the good ole PAAS easter egg dye. nothing fancy schmancy and it was perfect for our little ones. The four of us had fun coloring the eggs and made a minimal mess!

Twas the week before Easter

The week before Easter was a fun and busy one. We started the week dressing for spring and then moving on with cookie decorating... our kids could have cared less for the sugar cookies but enjoyed dumping sprinkles everywhere!

Under the Big Top!

Our first trip to the circus was a success!! We got the tickets from a friend but still managed to spend at least $50 in concessions! The show was about two hours with a brief intermission and the kids did great. Sulley was obsessed with the clowns and elephants while Colton loved the motorcycle act. We're looking forward to going back again next year.

First glimpse of the elephants on the way to the show!

$12 will buy you cotton candy (and a free? hat)

circus cuties!

Fun with Gigi

A big thanks to gigi who was here all week and weekend! not only did she cook, but she cleaned and probably did one million loads of laundry. We've had fun having her here and look forward for her to return in a few weeks... hopefully with big D!

Swing Batter Batter Swing

Since the weathers been getting nice (for the most part) we've been enjoying playing outdoors. Colton and Sulley have been enjoying their tball set that we've had for probably at least a year. Both kids are batting with their left hand... we'll see if things stay this way!

New Guitars!

These days, Colton and Sulley's favorite toys are their guitars. Both love to sit and play their guitar but their most favorite thing is to watch a you tube video of Laurie Berkner and pretend lto be apart of her band - singing, dancing, and playing guitar all at the same time!
