First we hit up the Easter Egg hunt with our cousins. What? You don't go egg hunting in your lion beanie? As we were leaving in the morning I called out to Myer, "Ok Myer let's get ready to go!" and he came running out of his room "ready to go" with that beanie on. Classic Myer. But his cute cousin Navy showed up in a tutu so apparently it was a costume party as well. I love this age.
Then of course Easter Sunday. Myer got some train tracks and Lennon got a doll. We found the eggs the Easter Bunny hid (which was only 6) and somehow made it to church on time.
And p.s. I didn't know that our tree outside our bedroom sprouted flowers in the spring time. I wonder what other surprises we'll see this spring in our new place. Happy Easter!
Called Fiore. This kind of pizza is my happy place. I am thrilled to know that it is on a moving truck that comes to my city every weekend. Or am I in trouble? It was a hit for the whole family so yes, we'll be in line again this coming weekend. Forever customer!
Just because we're not in school or work full time, doesn't mean we can't have our own Spring Break. We went on bike rides, played at Farm Country, had a picnic at the park, and a playdate with our cousins. And we got our first sunburns for the season. I'll chalk that one up as a successful spring break!
The big news of our family is that my sister and her family moved back to Utah! They'll be living at my parent's house until my brother in law finds a new job and we, especially Myer, are excited. We saw them on Sunday, and it was the best seeing the little cousins united again. Maddix is so grown up and his caring personality makes a great leader for the three of them. Navy (her hair!) is just there for the party. She is game for anything. Myer calls them his "friend cousins" and asks to play with them every morning. Let's hope they keep playing nice.... Oh, and I finally held my niece, Elodie. She is a chunker but a very chill chunker. And she smelled so good. Yummy newborn smell.
I'm so glad my nieces and nephew are living close again. We've missed so many things-- birthdays, playgroups, babysitting, etc. that we've got a lot to make up for. Because who knows how long they'll be in Utah. We hope Mike finds something quick but secretly we hope he finds something here. We love our "friend cousins".
Myer has been taking gymnastics for a few months now, and his cute little showcase was on Saturday. It was a grand total of 15 minutes but goodness he was sure cute. Showed us what he had been learning and even showed us his "Right teacher". I was a proud-videotapping-mommy. He got a cute little medal at the end, and it was all I could do to not to let him wear it to church the next day. But of course he couldn't show us that he was completely thrilled, so hence the lovely serious faces below. Proud of my Myer Man.
So I'm that crazy mom who won't let her babies go to church before they're 6 months old. (Germs love church). Luckily, Lenni passed the 6 month mark so she got the green light! It was crazy with two kids, but I finally got to sit next to Jake after 6 months of trading off Sundays. I think our new ward thought we were having marriage issues...nope just an OCD mom. Welcome to church Lennon.
