Climbing trees, riding bikes, exploring new parks. Oh, I am so glad for spring! Life is good today.

Kendra's Birthday Party

Sneak Peek at Kendra's Birthday Party on Saturday! The girls had a blast and were so good! Still, Martin and I are so thankful we don't have five kids. So, so thankful. I have lots more pictures but I just haven't had time to go through them all yet.

I can't believe Kendra is seven! She is getting so grown up and independent already. We're very proud of her and all the things she has accomplished this year especially. We are so glad she is making new friends and having so much fun.

Happy 7th Birthday Kendra! We love you very much : )

Easter Weekend

Both girls were excited to dye Easter Eggs last week. I don't think we did them last year at all. Neither of them eat the hard boiled eggs too much (one is plenty) so Martin gets lots of Egg Salad sandwiches this week for lunch.

The kit came with some gold paint so they looked metallic and **sparkly** my favorite. Martin made a very nice rainbow one- and he claims he isn't artistic??? I call BS : )

Kendra went with her mom for the weekend so we just had Lily- but still had fun visiting Aunt TT's house Saturday for dinner with family. Then off to Poppa's Sunday for dinner as well.

We did a little egg hunt for Lily at Poppa's. She loved it so much she went and hid all the eggs a second (and third) time to get to do it all over again.  Lily woke up very early Sunday morning at our house and found all the eggs before I got up *but* she didn't actually touch any of them. She just *found* them. Silly girl. Then she told me that the Easter Bunny didn't hide them very well. I'll make sure to let him know for next year.

I've been keeping quite busy with all the stuff we've had going on- and I know we're only going to get busier since the weather is finally taking a turn for the better. It was so nice to be outside on Easter and take in the warm sun and fresh air. We're hoping for a nice summer so we can make sure to have more outdoor adventures.

Birthday Invitation

Kendra is **BEYOND** excited for her birthday. I just hope it will live up to her expectations!

PS. I got another mirror for the girls to have in their room. It lasted one hour. Then it *broke* mysteriously. At least I didn't pay much for it. This is the 2nd mirror Lily has broken in her lifetime. Double bad luck for her!
