Our Easter






We had a very quiet Easter but enjoyed it very much. We spent Easter morning looking (and eating) through the baskets and hunting Easter eggs. We then attended the morning service at church. It was a nice, relaxing day and it ended our spring break nicely!

Spring Break Day 5: Bowlin' it to You!





We took the whole family bowling yesterday! I helped (or supervised) Ashton while he learned how to "take turns" with the rest of the family. It was his first time bowling except for wii, of course.
Well, thanks for hanging out with us during our spring break. It was fun and I think the boys had a great week! Have a happy Easter everyone!

Spring Break Day 4: Zooing It

This is my 200th post! Wow!

We took the kids to the L.A. zoo yesterday. It was Ashton's first trip and he enjoyed seeing all the animals! It was a lot of walking and we didn't plan on Ashton's short legs not handling all of it so Derrik did a lot of carrying him. We all had fun!

Then we can decorate!

















Here are some emergency vehicles we created.

Spring Break Day 2: All Aboard!


We went to Travel Town today and got to climb on the trains. The boys were in their element and had a blast! Here you go:


Spring Break Day 1: Let's Go to the Farm


I promised myself I wouldn't do this again this year! But, the boys look forward to seeing their daily adventures on the blog and I love to make them happy so, here we go!
Day 1: We went to Underwood Family Farms in Moorpark and picked strawberries! They have a large farm, complete with animals and little rides for the kids. Check it out:






















Here is the "fruit" of our labor = STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE! Yum!

Date with Ethan


Derrik and I took Ethan out for dinner on his birthday. We went to Elephant Bar and gave him our last and final gift: the black Nintendo DS he's been dreaming of FOREVER! We included the Lego Star Wars complete saga game that he's also been wanting FOREVER! I'd say he had a great birthday. I know we're proud of him and so thankful that he's in our lives. And, it's official....he's 10!

Ethan's Birthday Party


We celebrated Ethan last Sunday with a party! We took several of his friends out to see "Monsters vs. Aliens" and then went back to our house for cake and ice cream. Did you know that nine and ten year-old boys make a lot of noise? It's true, yep. Lots of noise.
Anyway, here's a few pictures of the day:
