Campout with daddy

On Saturday morning Scott and Ryan got up at 6:00 a.m. and headed out on their first campout with a few friends. They had so much fun and Ryan could not wait to tell me everything he did with daddy when they got home. The night before we kept talking about the "campout" and he couldn't quite figure out what he was about to go do, but he knew it would be fun. He kept asking me why they had to sleep in a tent.  Now I think he might want to sleep in one every night. Ryan caught two fish (which Scott didn't get a picture of), rode a 4 wheeler, made smores, built a fire, had a few races, played baseball, chased some cows and the list goes on. Ryan had a great time playing with all the kids, but there was one girl that stuck by him the whole time. Scott said they were holding hands a lot and as they sat around the fire she moved her chair over to sit next to Ryan. Ryan told Scott "Daddy, I like that girl, she is always following me around and she smiles at me." I think he was pretty smitten by her.  After a long day and night they are both exhausted, but cannot wait to do it again.

Easter Day

Easter was filled with lots of family, food and fun. We started out the day at Scott's parents church. The kids looked so cute dressed in the their Easter clothes. Although I thought they were adorable McKenzie was mad because she couldn't crawl in her dress and it took ALOT of convincing to get Ryan to put on plaid shorts. All the boy likes to wear is basketball shorts and a sports shirt. I begged and pleaded that he wear something new and yes mommy won, but of course not without a little bribery. After church we headed back to the house for lunch, Easter baskets and an egg hunt. The Haynes girls made it back in time from visiting family to enjoy the fun. We all had a wonderful time and are wondering what to do with ALL the candy. Ryan and Lilli had 4 egg hunts each during the week with birthday parties and school so the candy is everywhere. We are slowly trying to get ride of it without the kids noticing, but at times we find them in the playroom shoveling it in their mouths. YUCK!! I have been trying to explain to Ryan what Easter is truly about and he defiantly can tell me the story of Jesus, but not without an egg filled with something in his hand. My prayer continues to be that R & M grow up to know how wonderful our Savior is what an incredible sacrifice he made just for us.

Easter Playgroup

Last Wednesday we enjoyed the holiday by having our annual Easter Egg hunt. Most of these little ones Ryan has known since he was 5 months old. It is so much fun to look back on when it was just one and how that one was so little. Now our playgroup has double due to siblings and new little friends. It may be a wild and crazy day, but SO much fun. The kids first played at the park while I hid the eggs. After hunting for them all we had a wonderful lunch and a fun time just hanging out.

Ryan & Kenzie

Today we enjoyed playing outside while daddy worked on the yard. It is fun to see Ryan and McKenzie starting to play together. Kenzie was so cute trying to figure out how to get on the slide. She also enjoyed pulling up the grass. There are so many  new and fun discoveries once you are mobile.

After a day outside it was time to head to bed and McKenzie decided to go up stairs without us. We now know she can climb the stairs. As you look at the pictures you will see her in "boy pj's". Poor girl, they were the only clean ones and who knew we would have a photo session the day I put her in those. 

They do truly enjoy each other.

After a long day it was time to sleep just like the animals. Sweet girl!!
