The Last Bluebonnets

So, last week when the Bluebonnets were at their best, I wasn't feeling so hot. It's still early, they'll last awhile, right? Um, wrong. So yesterday, when my friend, Chantal and I went in search of a spot to take pictures, they were all but gone. She did manage to find a few under some trees, so we decided to take what we could get. They're not exactly the scene I was hoping for, but I'll take cute pictures of my kiddos in any setting :)

Easter Fun

We spent Easter weekend with Ryan's family in OK, and the kids had a blast.
 Egg hunt at their cousins' church
 Bounce house slide!
 Tink won a door prize - a basket as big as she is!
 Then they got to go watch J's soccer game
 Another egg hunt, this time at Grandma's house with more cousins! There are only 8 years between the youngest and oldest of this group, so they have a lot of fun together. They even spotted two bunnies running across the farm and had fun chasing them!
Happy Easter!

Happy birthday, my girl! Mommy can't believe you're already four. You are smart, tender-hearted, and helpful. You love to sing and be silly, especially with your brother. You are a GREAT sister, always happy to help, show Bug how to do something, or play with him. You are very excited about having a new baby, and hope it's a girl, "because we already have a baby boy".You love to help me around the house (folding socks and wiping down sinks) and love to "do school" together. You're learning as quickly as I can teach you! You know all of your letters and sounds, the days of the week, months of the year, your birthday, and you can count to 20 and write your name. We are working on learning CVC words, our address and numbers 11-20. You also love to use the computer and Daddy's iPad! You are a Daddy's girl through and through, and ask about him throughout the day. You love church, T-Kids, and dance class, and have made some new friends this year. You are shy around new people, but have quite a lot to say once you're comfortable! You have a great imagination and though you play great with others, you love to read, play, and pretend by yourself. Mommy is so proud of you and is having a blast learning and growing right alongside you. I love you more than pancakes!
