Easter Egg Hunting 2010

On Saturday I took Kylie and Lacey to a local church for their annual easter egg hunt. It's more of a pick up all the eggs you can from the grass as fast as you can than a 'hunt', the kids love it. We were suprised to see some kids we know, a from Kylie's girl scouts, and a boy from her Kindergarten class!

I can't believe I actually got a picture of them together, its tough these days because Lacey is go, go go!

Lacey was so excited she got this ONE egg, that is all she cared about. The rest she picked up was icing on the cake. She loved it, it was all I could do to hold her while the announcer told the kids the rules of the hunt. Of course she didn't care about the rules she just wanted the EGG!

Kylie was very intense about her hunting...

Kylie, now a seasoned Easter egg hunter has learned to be fast. She filled up her bag and then worked on filling up Lacey's too! She did a great job!

They tried teamwork...
however as you can see Lacey didn't really see the need to put them in a bag. She just picked and ran!
They had a great time, although I was cold I don't even think either one of them noticed the cold. It seems like they are oblivious to the temperature! I know Lacey will be ready for next year now that she knows what egg hunting is all about!

The Park

An evening at the park...

Kylie loves to play at the park, love the smile on her face...pure joy

Lacey loves to swing and Kylie likes to push her, it a great combination!

Shhhhh, daddy...she was trying to sneak up on either a bird or squirrel, I'm not sure which one because I wasn't there for this picture.

See how strong I am!

Lacey and another little girl visiting at the park...this little girl was our shadow the entire time we were there.
They had so much fun, this is what they looked like when we left the park! Happy kids, love 'em!

Lacey's 15 Month Doctor vist

This morning was Lacey's 15 month doctor visit. Everything went great, she is meeting or exceeding all of her milestones! Lacey weighs 25 1/4 lbs (5o -75th percentile) and 31 1/4 inches tall (50th percentile). She is quite a little trooper, she received 3 shots and cried for less than a minute!
Her Doctor is very pleased with what she is doing and will she her again (unless she gets sick) at 18 months.

Spring has sprung!

I don't know what these flowers are called but they are always the first flowers of the season to bloom. Aren't they pretty?? I love this picture!

Tulips breaking ground...can't wait until they bloom! I have tons of tulips in our flower gardern that are so pretty when they bloom.
