Spring Break

I took a couple of days off during the kids' spring break and ended up with a nice four day weekend. We were invited on a play date with Ray's cousin, her son, & his Aunt ... so we all headed to the zoo together!

It was a perfect zoo day ... the weather was awesome!

Looks like the giraffes agreed!

Turtles in a half shell ... turtle power!

Mr. Elijah Boo ... he's SO cute!
Heading down the slide
Pushing himself down the slide, lOl
His hair looks like he stuck his finger in a light socket

The munchkins dined on a gourmet picnic lunch [aka PB&J's] @ the zoo! It was a nice day ... I'm sure we'll be headed back sometime during the summer!

Gosh, Easter already?! This year is flying by!

Keeping with tradition we dyed Easter eggs with the kiddos the night before Easter! I think Justin had the most fun and I am pretty certain he cracked all of his eggs!
Justin put all of his eggs in one basket ... hahaha!

I didn't even capture a picture of all 3 dozen finished eggs ... big fail! But, here's a few finished beauties!
These are a couple of Dae~Dae's!

After the munchkins hit the hay that night .. the Easter Bunny got to work. He filled their sandbox up with sand and gave them new sand toys! They all go new swimsuits, shoes, beach towels, a pool, a couple of new movies, and a few other goodies!
Another big fail ... all of the Easter baskets aren't in the pix! Dae's is to the right!
After the kiddos finished their Easter egg hunt [smart bunny hid the eggs inside because it was cold that morning]! Then off we went to get ready and go to Ray's families house. We stayed over there for a couple of hours and the kids did another egg hunt. And then off we went back to our house just in time for my families arrival and the the kids third egg hunt of the day

Here's Damon not wanting to take pictures! Booger!
Love him! Such a lil stud muffin!
He's getting so big and handsome as ever!
Gorgeous lil lady!

Pretending to be warm!
Think he's spotted an egg!

Finally blogging about ... Jen & Hef [aka Hugh] getting hitched on 1.30.10! It was so much fun aside from the major butterflies I had prior to the speech I had to give! I was the maid of honor, so giving a speech was one of my duties! Yeah, I totally don't do public speaking, but some how I made it through with out fainting ... and the rest of the night was TONS of fun [possibly a lil too much fun]!

The day before the wedding Jen & I decided we would do a spray tan. Right after we were done the tans looked great. A few hours into the tan, however we looked like we belonged on the "Jersey Shore". We were freaking out slightly! Luckily, after we took showers our tans toned down a bit. Jen has pictures of us lookin' all "Snookie~ish", but I still have yet to see them!

The beautiful bride

There are more, but I put them in a "folder" that I can't find at the moment!
