The Aquarium

We got a season pass the the aquarium and thought it would be fun to go with our good friends the Mabey's. The kids loved it, Addison's and Drew's favorite part was looking at the penguins. On a funny note, we went back a few weeks later, and when I got the kids in the car I asked Addison what her favorite part was. She then answered, "Eating at that place." We did eat lunch there, so she must have been pretty hungry, because that was the last thing that I would have remembered!

Easter Weekend

We had a wonderful Easter weekend. It started out Saturday evening with dinner and an Easter Egg hunt at my parent's house. The kids loved looking for eggs.

Then on Sunday the kids found their Easter baskets that the Easter Bunny left for them.

Then we headed up to Tremonton to Tim's parents house for dinner and some more egg hunts. I don't know what we enjoy more, the grown up egg hunt or watching our kids look for eggs. The weather wasn't that nice so this year we did the hunt downstairs.

It was a fun and busy weekend, but we loved it. Also I had found these glasses at my parent's and thought they were hilarious. Here is Drew sporting the bunny glasses. Happy Easter Everyone!!

Easter Eggs

This was Addison's first year decorating Easter eggs. I finally felt like Addison was old enough to be able to decorate the eggs all by herself. I found the above stamp kits and thought they would be perfect. I really wanted Addison to be able to do it all by herself and dying can be a little messy. She was so excited and couldn't wait to start decorating. She was even more excited to have her little friends, Madelyn and Audrey come over. I felt a little bad not letting Drew decorate some so I let Drew attempt to decorate the eggs. That was over quite quickly due to the fact that she would stamp it and them try to crack them on the table.

Addison's decorated eggs.

Story Time

Addison loves to haul all her babies and dollies around. She calls them "her girls" which I think is pretty cute. I noticed her the other day sitting on her bed with her dolls all lined up reading to them. Her favorite stuffed animal is her Hello Kitty that she got from her Grandma and Grandpa Shirley.

Nest Treats

One of Tim's favorite treats are cornflake treats. I hadn't even had a cornflake treat until I met Tim. Now we like to make them as a family. The last time we made them I thought they would be perfect to make into little bird nests. Addison is my little helper, and you might be wondering where Drew is. Well Addison and I tend to do our treat making while Drew is napping. Here is my little helper in action.

April Fools

We had some friends over for dinner and I wanted to do something fun for the kids since it was April Fools Day. We told them that since they didn't eat all their dinner that we made them something else to eat. The kids were a little confused at first but once they tried it they were surprised and happy to know it was candy, ice cream and a donut hole.
