Ice Cream!

I know we're behind the times, but we took the kids to Farrell's for the first time last night- they loved it!  Duh, who wouldn't love getting a big ice cream "clown" sundae on a random Sunday night?!  It was our special 'last night of spring break' treat since unlike most of their friends, they didn't get to go on a fun vacation for spring break.  Ella has already declared that she wants to go back for her birthday dinner. :)

The kids DID keep us laughing all week- I really need to start writing all this stuff down because Everett in particular is so hysterical.  I think we may have a class clown on our hands.  The kids were being rowdy in my bedroom so I said, "who is going to be the first one in time out?", and Everett goes, "BYE!" but instead of leaving the room like a normal person, he MOONWALKS while doing that big truck reverse sound...beep, beep, beep, beep, beep.  Here is playing for the crowd at a birthday party. ;)

The Spring Haps

Not much going on lately...bbqs, birthdays and soccer mostly...

Everett started a soccer class with Sydney...
As you can see, Everett wasn't loving it the first time, but he did much better the second class!  I'm glad we are doing this before AYSO because I didn't realize how shy he gets in a new environment, so it will be good practice.

We had the twins' (our neighbors) first birthday party!

One of the best things about having a birthday party at your neighbors' house (you know, aside from being able to walk home after drinking of course!)?  Being able to sit on your couch and watch one kid in the bounce house at the party while the other kid naps!

This is Ella when I tell her something surprising apparently?

My beautiful baby boy...look at those lashes (and blue frosting)!

You know those rare moments when the kids are not fighting over a toy or who gets the bigger piece of cake?  I actually caught a few on camera!  These two were being so sweet this morning...heaven...

Easter 2015

We tried to put together a neighborhood block party/hunt, but Easter came so early this year that we couldn't coordinate it.  So the kids were super excited when one of our neighbors put together a last minute hunt for her grandkids and all the kids on the street...

This is how Everett arrived at the hunt...

First time Everett dyed Easter Eggs...

On Easter Sunday, we kept it low key with church, lunch at grandma and grandpa's house and another hunt of course!
