Easter 2011 (1 month late!)

This year we had Easter at our house.  We did a brunch and all the food was amazing.  After eating we set out all the eggs and began our Easter egg hunt.  It was fun to watch all the kids have so much fun chasing down all the eggs and seeing what was inside.  The weather was actually pretty nice and we had a great time with all the family.

April Kite Party

Every year my sister in-law, Chelsea, does a kite party for the April birthdays.  She always does such a great job and this year was no exception.  We had lunch and then headed to the park to fly kites.  The weather was actually quite nice this year.  There was just enough wind and it wasn't too cold.  We took our kite we had bought at the Oregon Coast and it was a lot of fun.  I couldn't get any kites to fly.  Every time I touched one, it crashed!

Spring Break 2011

At the beginning of Spring Break, I worked on getting my house cleaned and errands ran.  On Thursday of that week, we headed to Washington to visit Caleb's grandma.  We spent a day with her and then took a day and went to Seaside.  It was a short trip filled with driving, visiting family, and site seeing.  On the way home we stopped at the falls and IKEA.  It was all a great time!

It was beautiful when we pulled into Seaside.  As soon as we got out of our car, the wind picked up and the rain began.

When it was nice, we decided to buy a kite and go fly it on the beach.  As soon as we got the kite all put together, the weather changed.

We got so wet that we had to spend a couple hours in an arcade that was indoors to get ourselves dry!
