KC Royals

We decided E might be ready for his first team sport and he chose t-ball. He is doing a fantastic job staying in the game and being "baseball ready" at all times. The games are pretty much cuteness overload watching these little guys figure out which way to run and throw!

Preschool Graduation

 E and his favorite little lady and carpooling buddy, Liliana!

 E and his favorite teacher Mrs. Davis. 

The graduates got a surprise show from Roscoe the clown after the ceremony. They were mesmerized and loved every minute of it!

It happened, E graduated preschool! In all honesty I never really wanted this day to happen. I secretly hoped I could keep him little forever, but just like Caleb, he went ahead and grew up much too quickly right before my eyes. I think back to registering him for preschool a little over a year ago and how shy he was and how much he didn't like the idea of preschool. Wow, how far he has come! E did a fantastic job in school this year. The teachers spoke so kindly of him and his sweetness and also shared how much he came out of his shell and started to enjoy himself and even be goofy with the kids at times. He is such a smart little guy and my prayer for him is that he will continue to learn and grow and gain confidence in himself. God has great plans for you E!

Sea life MI Aquarium

I'm becoming very aware that my days spent with this little cutie all to myself are drawing to a close soon. So I decided we should do something special and take a little field trip together to the aquarium. We went on a weekday and pretty much had the whole place to ourselves. E was IN LOVE with the touch tank and in particular the pencil urchins. We visited the touch tank twice and spent so much time at it that we experienced 3 different workers rotating through and enjoyed talking with them about the creatures. Once E found out that the pencil urchins will "hug" your finger if you place it between their spikes E was hooked! He was counting the hugs he was getting and was so excited. Such cuteness! This little guy might be my marine biologist one day. One things for sure, he has my heart for all the days!

DNR Adventure Center

Aunt Jodi came for another visit to MI. Thank you Great Lakes Coca-Cola for footing the bill! E's t-ball game got rained out so we decided to take her on a little adventure down in the D! We visited the DNR Adventure Center and had some fun exploring and playing inside on a rainy day.

Chopper Daddy

D volunteered to bring a Blackhawk out to the Chesterfield PD community day so we headed over to get in on the fun. We got there in time to see the helicopter land and then got in lots of yummy food, bounce houses, time with friends, spring sunshine, and lots of appreciation for our local heros that do so much to keep us safe and protected. It was a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Easter Eggs

We got a fun invite to dye eggs with our friend Gabby and her Mom. I think us Moms had just as much fun as the kids. We really got excited about the plastic shrinking wrappers and glitter! E loved the snoopy wrappers and stickers. I hope he never grows out of his love for all things Snoopy. C loved the challenge of getting stripes on his eggs. Our finished products were just beautiful!

Egg Scramble

My Easter cuties!

 C getting his brave on and touching the snake!

 E is ready for the hunt

The boys and I enjoyed a morning at Stony Creek park for their Egg Scramble. C is getting a bit old for this sort of thing, but was a great sport for the sake of his brother. Because there weren't many kids in C's age category for he egg hunt he got lots of extra candy filled eggs so he was pleased with that!
