Easter time

We headed to Grandma Char's a couple weekends ago for a Sunday lunch and they had a ton of Easter egg coloring kits.  This was Chase's first try at dying eggs.  Like a lot of things it kept him entertained for about 15 mins.  He managed to get a couple done and than I got to be a kid again and do a couple eggs myself. 
The SLP's were there too and I think the girls enjoyed the decorating a little more.

Chase's 3rd Birthday Party

Last Sunday we celebrated Chase's 3rd Birthday with family.  The theme was pirate due to his love for the new show on Disney Jr.  Of course a lot of planning went in to the party by me (always over do it) and it all went very well.  He enjoyed his day and is enjoying all his gifts even more. Plus with all the clothes he got his summer wardrobe is pretty much complete.  Here is one of my favorite shots.  Hard these days to get a good smile out of the little guy. 

The kids enjoyed some fish sticks, popcorn shrimp, and ants on the logs (all pirate food) And of course some dirty punch. We sent the kids on a treasure hunt around the house to collect some pirate gear and a treasure at the end (their gift bags).  Of course I had the fancy camera set on the wrong setting for the hunt so no good pictures from that.  But did get some shots of the kids sword fighting.

Some other shots from the party.  Cake, cupcakes, gifts, and an attempt at a family shot.

Chase's 3rd Birthday Party weekend

Chase turns 3 on Monday the 18th and we picked this weekend for a family birthday party. Party is on Sunday and it's a Pirate theme. I've enjoyed hunting for pirate stuff for the party. Chase and I even have costumes but not sure if we will be wearing them all day. The kids will be going on a treasure hunt and of course eating cake!! Grandma and Grandpa made it down this weekend too so they can enjoy in the party fun!
It was 3 years ago today that I checked into the hospital expecting to have a baby that night. Little did I know it would be another day and half until he was born. A long day and half but oh so worth it!!
Here was one of our favorite pictures of Chase. He's about 3 months here.

Random shots!!

With Brayden never sitting still these days I find less and less time to blog. So here are a couple random shots of the boys from March and April. (picture above a common thing these days)
Hey look it's Paulie D from the Jersey Shore!!
Chase enjoying some classic Mickey Mouse episodes on the Ipad. He even got out his ears to watch.
Grandma Char got this shirt for Brayden. I put it on him last weekend and thought he looked like a little girl. It was so cute!! Might have to put it on him more often so I can get my little girl for a day or too.
It says I'm Cute, My mom is Cute, and My dad is lucky!!

Spring is here!

We hit the park the other Sunday for a little play time.

Spring Break at the Water Park!!

The other weekend we joined the Rislov and their 2 kids and the McBride's and their 2 kids for a little spring break in Alexandria. The Arrow Wood Resort was the water park we chose. We all took Friday off and headed up in the afternoon. Once we checked in it was right to the water park. Our only complaint was the kiddie area was a little chilly. The lazy river and basketball pool were warm but not that easy to hold 2 kids in those pools all day/night. Everyone had a great time. The kids loved the water park, pools, and slides. The boys enjoyed the arcade. The adults enjoyed the fact that we could have a couple drinks, play games, and not have to drive anywhere. All and all a great weekend. Here are some photos. This was my little swim mate all weekend.

Chase-Saturday no nap =out at the water park at 4.
