Hoppy Easter!

Easter morning Cole was so excited to get in the bath tub, he ran past the living room without noticing what the Easter bunny had left. After his bath the baskets caught his eye and getting dressed was a little bit of a struggle. Payton was quite happy with the Easter Bunny--Lego Batman video game was exactly what he wanted!

Luckily, the Easter Bunny hid just enough eggs for both boys to fill their baskets!

Cole just wanted to eat all the candy as soon as he opened each egg. Payton wanted to crack the eggs and then count the candy.

The boys looked so handsome in their new Easter outfits for church!

No nap Cole fell asleep at 6:30 and didn't wake up until morning. What a day!

Coloring Eggs

Payton loves to color Easter Eggs! Sadly, Cole has yet to discover the excitement of it. Every year he seems to fall asleep right before the event. Payton is such a good big brother; he made several eggs with Cole's name and dyed them PINK just for Cole.

When Cole saw the eggs he was so excited! He didn't really get that they were fragile. He wanted to play golf with them!

Easter at the Park

Mountain Crest Park had an Easter Egg Hunt the day before Easter. The kids were so excited they got to see the Easter Bunny! The egg hunt was a little nontraditional. Different vendors set up booths; the kids went to each vendor got an egg and then went to trade in their eggs for candy. Kind of a crazy idea but the kids thought it was great!

The Fair

This year we decided to take the fam to the Clark County Fair. One of Payton's friends from school was competing in the mutton bustin'. Payton got to go early with his friend to watch and we caught up with him later. We watched the rodeo, ate lots of goodies, rode some rides and played silly games. Payton and his friend won matching dogs. They were so proud!
Cole loved all the little rides!

Brian is such a sucker for all the games at the fair! I was really proud of him for only playing three games this year.

Payton's 1st Field Trip

The kindergarten classes got to go on a fun field trip to a local children's museum. I was really excited to be able to go along and bring Cole. They had so much fun exploring and playing. Some of their favorites included the hurricane tunnel, shopping at the grocery store and The World of Clifford the Big Red Dog.

Payton had the most groceries of all the kids. You can tell where he learned to shop.
We all had a blast and can't wait for the next field trip!

The Big One

Brian celebrated his 30th birthday on March 25th. He was out of town for work so he sat in his hotel room and ordered room service and watched TV. I felt terrible for the poor guy! The boys and I were so excited to see him after a long week of him in Reno. We had a fun party with ice cream cake and presents! Happy Birthday, Mister!

Cole had to show Brian how much his muscles grew while he was gone! What a stud!
