Easter Egg Hunt 2011

It was just the girls and I this Easter.  Daddy had to work, so I tried to make the day as fun as I could.  The girls did 2 Easter Egg hunts!  One in our backyard, the video follows and the other one following Mass at our Church! 

Pictures of their loot!
Kylie right before they opened the gates for the Church easter egg hunt, she's excited!
Lacey's ready, except she is beyond tired...but she didn't let that minor detail slow her down!
Found one!
Kylie's getting to be a pro at Easter egg hunts, she knew exactly where to go!

The girls had so much fun, they love Easter egg hunts.  So much so that after the backyard egg hunt Kylie took all of her eggs and hid them around the house so they could have another one.  The only problem was that Lacey didn't understand that the eggs she was finding in the house belonged to Kylie and that she had to give them back.  This resulted in a 'slight' dispute!  :-)

I decided to take out the camera

I think they turned out rather well.  :)

3 Months!

This little perfect baby is 3 Months old!

Why do they have to grow so fast?!

She is so fun to watch and talk to, she tries so hard to talk back. Ususally you get a huge smile from her when you talk and just last week she started trying to laugh! It's the best!

Kylie sings!

Kylie loves to sing. Last year Nana and Papa gave her a karaoke machine for Christmas. She loves to get the microphone out and sing and dance her heart out. It is so much fun to watch. Enjoy!

She was in a halloween mood, here she is singing to Ghostbusters!

And Monster Mash!

The girls and I went to a local kids museum on the first day of spring break. It's very a fun place, it's all about your health, and has lots of interactive exhibits. The girls had a great time, we spent almost 3 hours and I'm pretty sure they tried to do everything in the museum! Kylie had been there before when she was in preschool so she had an idea of what to expect.

This eye ball really freaked Lacey out, she would only look at it from afar. Kylie tried to encourage her to look at it by going up to it but Lacey was not convinced.
They had a plastic chair that was filled with lot of used cigarette butts, it was really gross at the smoking and lung exhibit.

Kylie's reason not to smoke....
Dr. Norton hard at work performing a surgery. Look at the concentration, even her tongue is sticking out!

Dr. Norton successfully removed her patients heart!
Her assistant Lacey removed the patients leg bone.
The girls playing shadow soccer. Your shadow is what makes the balls move, much harder than it looks!
Lacey's attempt at keeping up with the lights on the floor. Pretty difficult when you are just under 3 feet tall!
Kylie had lots of fun climbing the 'skin' wall.
At the supermarket, then Lacey went to the garden 'pick' her vegetables.
This picture speaks for itself :-)
Scientist Kylie discovering a new molecular structure.
At the dentist!
Lacey's turn!
And finally they ended their day by coloring a picture. Funny enough they both picked the same picture to color without even knowing it!
All in all it was a great day at the museum! What I love about this place is it isn't huge so when you take more than one kid they have a little freedom to roam without Mom hovering over them. Kylie loved that she was able to have that little bit of freedom, made her feel independent.

Kylie and Nana

My wonderful husband dedicated this video and song to our daughter Kylie who was so deeply hurt from the loss of her Nana (his Mother). Nana will always love you and I will be there to help and love you too. I wont let go!

Kylie and Nana had a very special bond. Kylie shares so many of Nana's personality traits, it is beautiful.

At the Zoo!

Lions and
Tigers and
Bears Oh my!

This is the Red Panda

On my last day off before I have to go back to work I took the girls to the Zoo. The Zoo in our town is small and doesn't have a huge amount of animals, but there are still enough animals to have an enjoyable day. The girls had a great time. Kylie was slighting disappointed that the petting zoo, pony rides, and the butterfly exhibit was closed until Memorial Day. I promised her we would go back when they all opened. I know Lacey would enjoy all of those things too.

This is the Playful Otter's exhibit. It is a new exhibit for this Zoo. They are so much fun to watch, seems like they never stop playing.
I thought the Tamarin's were cute, they were cleaning each other's backs.

It was quite warm outside, I believe the temperature got up to 84 degrees. It was one degree below the record high. Pretty warm for this area in April. It was great!

Black and White Colobus Monkey
We had a great day, even Katie enjoyed the outdoors. She was so good, she was just amazed at all the surroundings, very cute.
