Bab's visit

For my mom's Easter break, she decided to make a trip up here for a little visit.  We were able to celebrate Easter together and some fun thins.  We went to the zoo, had a picnic at the beach, went shopping and played at the park.  Max and Chloe had lots of fun playing with Babs.

I love how all kids love the swing.  I had to take pictures of Chloe because she was so happy to be in the swing.

We went to U of W to have lunch with Kim and Mira.  After lunch we walked around and saw the famous cherry trees that they have.  Everyone was taking pictures by these trees.  They were just so pretty.

Easter Day

On Easter Sunday, we went to church and then headed to Heidi's house for an Easter egg hunt and dinner.  Because we have church in the afternoon, Chloe always misses her nap, but on the way to my sisters house she fell alseep.  I woke her up, so we could do the Easter egg hunt before it got cloudy and cold, but I had to take a picture of her asleep.  She is just so cute.

The kids had so much fun doing the Easter egg hunt.  They found lots of eggs and other goodies.

Mira's first Easter!

Once again, I tried to get a picture of my kids together, but these are the best that I got.  One of  these I will get a picture of them together and smiling.

Hope everyone had a great Easter even though it was a couple of weeks ago.

Easter at the Church

The second thing we did to celebrate Easter was to have an Easter egg hunt with our friends.  Because we live in a place that rains all the time, we had the egg hunt at the church.  We hid Easter eggs in 2 different rooms, so the younger kids went to one room and the older kids went to the other room.  Of course the kids had so much fun and was able to eat lots of candy.

So about 3 weeks ago, Chloe fell out of crib.  She was crying like crazy, but the next day she was playing like normal.  Then a couple of days later, Paul notice that when he rubbed her wrist she would cry.  So I took Chloe to the doctors and found out the she fractured her wrist.  The docoter wanted me to put a cast on it, but the docoter at the hospital told me just to keep the brace on.  So for about 3 weeks she wore a brace on her right arm.

Pre-Easter Celebration

We did a couple of things this year to celebrate Easter.  We first started out celebrating at my dad's house the week before.  The kids got to decorate Easter eggs which Chloe loved to do.  My kids colored all 12 eggs in about 2 minutes.  After coloring we had an Easter egg hunt and then some lunch.  It was a perfect day.

I love this picture of Mira.

About a month ago, we headed to the Seattle Aquarium because I had to use my Groupon before it expired.  The kids had a lot of fun.  All Max wanted to see were the sharks for some reason, so he was happy that he got to see some in the big fish tank.  Kim and Mira decided to join us and it was a lot of fun.  It was also very nice to have an extra hand to help.  I hate going to places that are indoors with my two kids.  It is hard to watch them both because it gets so crowded and all they do is run from one thing to the other.  I can do anything that is outside like the zoo by myself, but indoor activities I just don't like.

 I was trying to get a picture of Chloe by the jellyfish

I love these pictures 

Mira loved looking at the lights and the fish

Really close to our house we have a little indoor mall.  It is nothing special, but it is a perfect place to go on a rainy day.  All through out the mall they have little rides for 25 cents.  So we always go in one or two stores first and if the kids are good then we ride the rides.  The kids have so much fun and I love that they only cost 25 cents.  I can put both of them on the ride at the same time.  I love it.  It's a perfect little outing on a rainy day.

I can never get my kids to look at the camera, but some of these pictures I just love Chloe's face.  She hasn't done this that often so she always had a big smile on her face.

Beach and Park Day

A couple of weekends ago, we had a nice and sunny day for once.  On Friday it was super nice and we played at the park with some friends. It was so good to feel the sunshine. So on Saturday, it was suppose to be just like Friday nice and sunny, so we decided to head to the beach/park to let the kids play and run around.  It wasn't as nice as Friday, but it wasn't raining so I was happy.  The kids had so much fun playing on the playground and playing in the sand. 

My kids love the swing, but what kid doesn't.  I love to see the faces when they go really high.  They always have the biggest smile on their faces.

Even though it wasn't hot, the kids still had a lot of fun playing in the sand. 
I was trying to get a picture of Max throwing a frisbee, but this was the best I could do.  Max loves playing with his daddy and he is really could at throwing it.

I think playing soccer is their favorite thing to do.  They could chase and kick the ball all day and the best part is that it totally tires them out.
