Grandma and Grandpa were here and help Lia find her eggs. The ants got a few, but mostly the kids found them before the ants did.
Grace enjoying the cotton candy. The neighbors that manned the cotton candy and snow cones are two recently returned military guys. We are glad they are home safe. They both looked like cotton candy after they were done, that stuff gets everywhere!
Besides all the candy the Easter Bunny brought, he always brings new swim suits. Lia and Ellie show off their suits with Berkley, our neighborhood friend.
I know Sam and Levi were there, although Levi announced this year he is too old to hunt for eggs. At least he is too old when his friends can see him participating. That didn't seem to stop him in the privacy of his own home. Sam was too busy bouncing and running with friends to sit still for a picture. The amount of sugar that day was amazing.
Swimming in now in full swings since we have gotten the temperature up. We've had a couple of 100 degree days already (yuck). Lia and Grace took their first round of swim lessons and had such a great time.
Lia swimming to the side. Yes, Miss Marci does let go and let her swim all by herself!
What a big girl.
What a big girl.
Levi has been enjoying using his reading time to read to Lia and Grace. Lia does well with a book or two then decides things are getting a little boring. This is what happened one afternoon after a long session of reading. Maybe the view was better from up there.
Read 'em Cowboy.
Sam was in church the other day waiting for Junior Primary to end so he could go in. I guess he had been well behaved that day because one of his teacher's asked him: "Sam, why are you such a good boy." Sam answered: "Because they give me a pill for that." All the teachers had to turn away to keep their laughter from showing. Ah, Sam. You truly make us laugh.
And lest you think our life is sweetness and roses all the time, let me leave you with a reality check of shopping with two toddlers. Walmart + no nap = fun for Mom.
