Happy Easter!

 Holidays are so much fun with kids! The pure joy and excitement on their faces make it all worth it!
 Hunting for eggs in the backyard

 Taking a moment to check out the grub!

 Found a big one!

 Lucy was content to watch Emery find all the eggs this year. But I'm thinking that by next year she is going to fight him for that candy!

 The final review!
 Easter morning! One happy boy=one happy mama :)
 The Easter bunny may have brought candy, games, and a movie, but Mom and Dad got the kids a pool! After 3 or 4 inflatables ones kicked the dust, we figured we'd try one of these!
 And Lucy started walking all  over the place this Easter! We are so proud of her :)
 It was a wonderful Easter day!

Birthday Party!

 Emery was so excited to get invited to a Ice Cream birthday party! His friend Lily from next door was turning 4. We rushed back from Atlanta on Saturday so he wouldn't miss it!
 Ice cream, cake, and candy. Sound like a party!

Atlanta Temple Open House

 We went down to Atlanta this weekend to go to the open house at the renovated Atlanta Temple. I wish I got more pictures but it was just a quick trip and we seemed to be rushing a lot! We drove down Friday night and then back Saturday morning after going to the temple. It was overcast, but still so beautiful. Emery was very excited to be able to go inside the temple!





Here are a couple pictures from 4 years ago when we used to live in Atlanta.

 We lived in Midtown and used to look at this skyline every day! Don't miss it ;) Seriously, we are so much happier here in South Carolina! But it was fun to go back a visit for just a day!

What's up?

 Lucy is so busy these days. She does love to play toys with Emery, but her attention span is somewhere between 5-60 seconds!
 And Emery loves to take care of his little sister! On nice days we spend as much time outside as possible!
 She has hair! And enough for a little pony tail up on top! So sweet.

 I got some creative juices flowing yesterday and  this is what the end result was...
The Ruffle Pouch! Limited quantities available! Only $15! Let me know if you want one before they are gone! If there are any left in a few days, I'll try to get around to listing them in my Etsy shop!
