Easter Festivities...

Saturday morning the girls and I woke early to catch the annual egg hunt at The Dunes. The hunt was sort of a bust (Aiden had her eye on a sparkly green egg and was so heartbroken when another kid got to it first, that she basically just stopped and didn't know what else to do...), but the girls had a blast in the bounce house, playing at the playground, and posing for a picture with the "costumed" Easter Bunny (the girls informed me the real Easter Bunny was just too busy for pictures and even though they knew this one was just a costume they still liked him).

After the egg hunt, the girls and I ran a few errands...including a stop at Home Depot which resulted in the following fun photos....

Sunday morning was a little rough...Roo woke up with a blazing fever and it was raining. The girls and I didn't make it to church, but Uncle Dan came up for a visit and they absolutely loved the indoor egg hunt he and Doug put together for them. My camera battery was basically dead, but here are two photos I managed to snap that morning before it quit on me for good.

Hope you all had a fantastic Easter!!

Fun With Face Paint...

Who would have thought a quick trip to the grocery store would result in an afternoon of pure happiness for the girls? Note to self - a little bit of face paint equals a whole lot of FUN!


Catching Up...

Here are some photos of what we've been up to this past month...sorry for the mass posting, but time just seems to be flying by these days!!

Riding the bus to gymnastics, waiting at the bus stop, and just having fun!

Family photo time (Aiden decided to wear my glasses)...and some belly pics (this was me at 33 weeks)

More painting...first the ceiling in the girls' room then the kitchen (Doug also decided to paint my belly...nerd)

Last-minute decision to take the trip to Utah to cheer my sisters on while they ran the SLC Half-Marathon
Weird weather on the way up (yes...we had snow during the trip. The girls LOVED it!)
Cousin time after the marathon and me and the girls with Great Grandma & Grandpa Leach

Total, Complete Awesomeness...

In case I haven't previously mentioned it, I just want to put it out there that I have the most awesome sisters ever. This past weekend, four of my five sisters ran in the Salt Lake City Half Marathon. Em and I were there in heart and spirit - Em had a dance committment and I, of course, couldn't really run the race at 34 weeks pregnant. Fortunately, my ever-growing belly did not stop the girls and I from cheering my sisters on as they completed this amazing feat.


13.1 miles?! Shoot...that ain't nothing for these awesome gals!!

Dear State of California...

This is the first year we have owed taxes. Ever.

Needless to say, We are not happy about having to send you our hard earned money. I wish I could say I knew it was going to be put to good use...but, I know better than to expect that.

Enjoy the green. This will hopefully be the last (and ONLY) year you receive payment from us.
