Easter Day

This year we carried on the tradition from last year and hid clues in Easter eggs that would lead to their baskets. The clues led out to the garden and the goodies made their way all over the back yard soon after.  After the morning fun, we made our way over the Aunt Tina's as we always do on Easter for brunch. The crew is getting so large that we finding ourselves splitting the Easter Egg hunt into two parts: younger and older kids.

After nap, we had the Neins and Kama over for dinner. I never get any pictures when they are over and it really makes me sad. I can only guess it's because it's usually towards the end of day and I am too tired to remember to pick up the camera. These excuses just will not do. Next time, loads of pics.

Orlando with Kama!

For Christmas, Kama got a trip to Disney with the kids! She has never been able to go with us before so this was a special trip. To top it all off, Meredith even came. We headed to Hollywood Studios with hopes that Liam would finally get up the courage to watch the Indiana Jones stunt show. He kept refusing until he got to meet Indy and see the set when it wasn't being used. After that, it was on! It ended up being his favorite part of the day and we all got to see Meredith perform in front of the whole audience. The girl was made for the stage.

I think Livi's favorite part was showing Mickey and Minnie her Minnie dress. After meeting Minnie, Livi was upset that she forgot to show her her dances so I told her we would show Mickey and Mickey would pass it along.

The next day was mini golf, ice cream and movies. The weather was great all weekend, the company was superb and I think Kama had a really good time which was the whole point.

St Patty's Day

I'm well aware that St Patrick's Day is not a real holiday, but these kids will take anything you give them. It just so happened that family was in town because of a birthday and baby shower and hell, I'll drink to that!  So we wore green, drank beer and dyed Easter eggs! Ok, I know that part may seem a little odd for St Patty's Day but like I said, family was in town so we might as well squeeze in all the holidays any way we can.

Renaissance Festival

Not sure why I didn't think of it before. The Renaissance Festival is like.. the perfect place to take my kids. Liam is so into knights and castles and Livi loves princesses. It never crossed my mind to bring them until my brother said his family would be visiting the next day. I am so glad we went. Not only did we get to spend time with family, but the kids had a fantastic time.
