The cousin egg hunt

Greta found the final egg!  For full photo coverage check out our dropshots link.

Easter with the Peters

On Saturday we went to Medford, WI to celebrate Easter 
with the Peter's extended family. We had such a nice time 
visiting, eating, playing and hunting for eggs.

Dave's cousing Laura was trying to show me how to use my camera, pulling out colors etc.
I thought these photos of our nieces Ava and Greta turned out pretty cool.

The neighborhood egg hunt

Our neighbors, Mary and John, graciously hosted a Saturday morning egg hunt for the kids.  It was lots of fun.  Zoey was thrilled to be wearing a dress.  As I look at these photos now, I can't believe how much more color has arrived in one week.  Easter brought the Spring this year and life is coming back.  We all feel stronger and thankful for rebirth.

Pennies and jelly beans were a fun find in the eggs.  Later, Zoey had me help her count her money.  She had dumped it all together with plastic coins and pesos.  She could not understand why "all" the money could not help her buy a changing table for her baby.
Dave has been looking for some ink on this blog.  He really is a very present dad and a great one at that.  I thought this was a great photo of dave and a funny one of Zoey.  We will most likely find the same expression on Zoey's face in a photo with her dad in 10 years.

Easter Preparations

                                              Dying easter eggs.
Spring on a plate.  
                 Frosting cookies intently.

I thought rolling out dough and cutting cookies would be an engaging activity for Zoey and the neighbor boys, Parker and Jack.  A few minutes in, Parker said, "when can we be done and go play?"  But, as you can see by the previous photo, Zoey took her job very seriously.

E-Trade look alike

             "Check it.  You just saw me buy stock."
     Really.  We could make a million or at least pay for college.

Eating Cheerios

Grady thinks he is the big diapers now that he has joined the ranks of babies that eat cheerios.  However, he thought the bowl unnecessary and discarded it quickly.  You might also notice Zoey's white dress... she LOVES dressing up in this "wedding" dress and would like to marry her brother someday.

Sitting on Hands

We went to the Eau Claire Children's Museum a week ago.  Zoey did not really want to leave and this was her last ditch stall attempt.  "Mommy, take a photo of us on the hands!"
