A lazy Saturday at home.

Uncle Scotty stopped by with his motorcycle this afternoon while we were playing outside. All the boys thought it was pretty cool to ride on it and try on the helmet.

Then I saw Emmett "riding" on this!

After playing outside for a while and in need of baths, daddy had the idea to siphon warm water from the kitchen sink, out the window, through the house and into the pool for a "hot tub!" It was a hit with our boys. (Best dad EVER!)
Emmett was the last one in and he could not get enough. He was jumping and splashing and lounging on the side.

Showing us his soap chin.

The Royal Wedding

I did not wake my kids up to watch The Royal Wedding, but made sure they didn't miss "the kiss on the balcony". I think I took this picture right before they kissed.

And here they are watching the planes go by. They really seemed to enjoy it.

The boys set everything up like this and asked me to take their picture. They won those little animals at the Easter egg hunt yesterday!

All ready to go to church. My mom knit their sweaters...amazing. And, yes the big boys are focusing on the T.V.

The family in front of Nana and Papas house.

Easter baskets!

Easter Egg Hunt

I have so many pictures of Jackson like this from this day! The kid is always having a good time!


Having a healthy snack amidst all the candy! He just decided to lay down on the floor!

No more room in the bucket!

A jam packed day with the cousins!

With everyone in town, sleeping at my parents house, I just couldn't resist! The boys and I slept over on Monday night and were able to enjoy the WHOLE day with the fam. There are a ton of pictures in this post because I just couldn't decide...and...we did a lot. We all started out with breakfast at the kitchen table.

Next stop, the Garfield Park Conservatory. Please note how excited Jackson is to be standing with Adeline!

Here, we added Charlotte. Sawyer is not included...sorry.

Not the best picture of Emmett, but this is how he traveled around most of the conservatory.

Always a plumbers butt!

Next stop, Mollies for cupcakes. There are swings at the counter for seats. These guys thought that was pretty cool.

Charlotte LOVED the frosting!

Next stop, Leamington for egg dyeing.

Yes, our children wore some of our old maternity clothes (that we had just gone through and weeded out the things no one will ever wear again!) as smocks. You can see that we used binder clips to hold them on...genius!

I loved the lighting in this one.

Emmett had some frozen blueberries for a snack. As you can see a bath was needed!

I love that face!!
