Feeding ducks and flying kites

While the Matthews were in town we decided to go to Salem pond to feed the ducks and fly some kites. Well either the ducks had been fed all day long or they didn't like our 85 cent bread, what ever it was they didn't eat two slices of it and we got SIX bags...oh well the kids had fun!

Cassi and Morgan posing with the bread

I think that the kids ate more of the bread than the ducks did Ü

It was pretty gusty that day, we could get the kites up but then they would suddenly fall to the ground...

Owen thought that he was pretty cool with those sunglasses on!

Reagan preferred the playground to flying kites...who can blame her!This was Bailey's 'Winnie the Pooh' kite and Owen's 'Spiderman" kite

Sleep over with Cousins

When Kim and Brent came to visit we decided to have all the big girls have a sleep over in our computer room. So we took out the recliner that was in there and put in 3 twin mattress in there, they fit perfectly and the girls had so much fun!

I am sure Bailey will be mad at me as soon as she sees this picture...Ü
Morgan sound asleep
Sweet Madi
Cute Cassi
Did I mention that we turned on the light for this picture? Yea they were deep asleep!

Easter egg hunt

The kids did four easter egg hunts this year and boy do we have a lot of candy! Well at least we used to have a lot of candy Ü
This hunt was at Grandma Beardall/Grandma Peterson/Rachel and Albertos house...

On your mark...

Get set...

We had a lot of fun, but the best part was that Kim, Brent and family came into town. Even though the visit wasn't nearly long enough we had a lot of fun.

Happy Easter! This is Easter morning the kids are opening their Easter baskets. We have church at 9:00 am, so I asked the Easter bunny not to hide the Easter candy and toys this year. Bailey and Morgan both got sidewalk chalk and teeny tiny kites, Owen got a spiderman ball and a spiderman kite and Reagan got a cute pinwheel. They all got TONS of candy! Bruce and I also gave them Easter clothes, the older girls got shirts and a dresses, Owen got a dress shirt and a couple of shrits and Reagan got a dress and two new outfits.

Bailey really is happy here, just really tired!
don't you like her farmers tan?

Morgan got a little sun the day before from all the hunts! She sure is getting a lot of freckles, I love it!

Owen was most impressed that the Easter bunny got him crabby patties...silly boy!

Reagan figured out how to pop the eggs open and proceeded to open each egg and dump candy all over the floor!

We had a great Easter, I hope everyone else did too!

I forgot to get pictures of all the kids in their dress Easter clothes...hopefully next Sunday I can get them to wear the same clothes and snap a picture!

Splish, splash, we were takin' a bath!

These two are my water babies! If they hear me turn on the bathtub they are running full force, stripping as they go, so they can get in the tub.

They LOVE to splash and I usually end up soaked by the time they are out of the tub!

Owen is so happy in the tub until I try to wash him...I think he knows that when I pull out the soap tub time is almost over Ü

Reagan is washing her face...

And now she is washing the ducky

I just love these kiddos, they keep me on my toes and keep excitement in my life!

New Hair cuts

My awesome cousin Cami is going to school at Evans to become a hairstylist. We went there the other day to get our hair trimmed.

Bailey got about an inch or so taken off then she got layers...

I got my hair trimmed, layered and I decided to try out some side bangs...I am pretty much used to them now, the first couple days they got annoying but now I like them Ü

And Morgan was the biggest change, I have always thought that she looked so cute with short hair so we did a slight a-line with stacking in the cute!!! We love it!

Thank you so much Cami! We love our hair!
