Story Book Walk

With the kids getting older, it is a lot easier to go out and do different activities with them. The local Park and Rec had a story book walk a month or so ago, so I took the kids to that. They had a lot of fun. You basically followed a map around the park and at every stop did an activity. The walk was based off of an Eric Carle book From Head to Toe. So every stop you acted like a different animal.
Brileigh and Rylan worked together to stomp around like elephants.
Brett thought he could manage on his own.

Every child needs to know how to walk like a penguin don't they?
And the best part? We won one of the Eric Carle books the library was giving away! The kids love reading the book and playing out all of the animals at home.

Egg Dying

One of the activities I did with the kids lately is dye Easter eggs. They were so excited talking about it non stop after we bought the dye kit at Wal-Mart. As most of you know, I'm a bit of a neat freak, so giving my kids spillable glasses of colored dye was a big deal to me. Especially in the new house! After a lecture about how we were going to NOT spill, splash or break our glasses, we began.
Of course the kids thought they needed zero help from me, but I managed to assist a little. 
They all picked out their favorite colors to start with, Brett's was blue.
Brileigh's Pink
Rylan's Green
By the end they were masters of the process and only needed a little help removing the eggs from the dye.
All in all our Easter egg dying was a huge success!

I know, I know....

It has been FOREVER since I've posted. I know! Maybe one look at these cuties and you'll forgive me? This is from the Easter egg hunt last weekend.
This one is from 2013
and 2012. We caught up now? LOL
Oh what have we been doing? So many fun things. In the fall we started school! They were enrolled in a pre preschool, just 2 days a week for a couple of hours. They've enjoyed it so much (so has mom) I can't believe they have less than two weeks left.
 We also trick or treated for the first time this last year. Now that they are in school, I can't ignore these things anymore, they're totally on to me.
All in all we've been having a ball these last two years. I guess the biggest change for us, is that we have moved. We spent the last year building a new house. (pics to come later, as we are still getting settled) The first night here was the first night the kids didn't sleep together in their whole life. They did amazing. They never cease to amaze me.
I plan on getting back into the upkeep of this blog as it helps me get important and not so important things in our life documented. If you follow my other blog, you've seen the kids these last two years as I've been scrapping them all along. If I seem to lack in my posts in the future, feel free to give me an email kick in the butt, I need it some days!
As always... Until next time
