Easter Baskets 2008





AJ Easter Egg Hunt










Every year, we attend the Easter Egg Hunt in Apache Junction the day before Easter. This year was the 20th year they've done it! As always, we had a great time and even though Easter was early this year, it was pretty warm.

Grandma & Grandpa sent the wonderful clothes for the kids -- isn't Lydia's dress just precious? Thanks again!

backyard Easter egg hunt














The Easter Bunny hid 58 eggs in our backyard this year! Every year, we leave the bag of plastic eggs on the back porch on Ash Wednesday so the EB can fill them up during Lent. Some years, there are new eggs added to the mix -- like a bunch of camouflage eggs this year! The EB filled the eggs with coins, candy and stickers.

The hardest ones to find were the ones in plain sight. I think the egg sitting on the swing was Egg #52 found! LOL! Lydia looked hard, but I don't think she found any this year. I'm sure she'll give the boys a run for their money next year!

Oh! And see Lydia's sleeper? It's Gerber and has a zip front. She really likes this style because they have no feet, and I like them because it's one piece. However, I can't find any more! I bought a pack on clearance and have been searching ever since for more. She needs 18m size in case you see them and we'll happily reimburse you. (And, no, she doesn't wear 18m yet, but these run small. She is wearing 12m in that style right now and will soon need the bigger size. She is just starting to wear 12m, but still fits in her 9m clothes just fine.)

on the move





Lydia is on the move! She is happy when someone leaves the pantry door open, but she was even more excited this morning when someone left the step stool there! She knows there's food in there for her and she's searching for that graham cracker box!

She's also speedy out the door when it's left open a crack. She has no problem crawling over the grass and rocks to find where her brothers may be playing.

homeschooling



One of the advantages of homeschooling is the ability to move outdoors and enjoy the sunshine and warmth while doing schoolwork!

2 Front Teeth . . .


He doesn't appreciate us singing "All he wants for Easter is his two front teeth . . . " but we find it amusing :)

Bo's Cruise





Some pictures from Bo's recent cruise to San Juan, St. Maarten and St. Thomas. I've tried to say more, but everything comes out snarky, so I'll leave it at that.

Zoo on March 4










We spent about 6 hours at the zoo today. Have I ever mentioned how much my kids love the zoo? Well, they do! They never turn down a visit, and rarely think we stay long enough at any one visit. Our annual membership pays for itself many times over during the year.

Hopefully Lydia will enjoy it as much as her brothers as she gets older. She had fun today, anyway!

Riparian Preserve









We discovered a new place to explore last week, and headed there again today. The Riparian Preserve isn't very far from our home, and I expect we'll make it a regular spot to visit.
