April 2015

Yay for making a post 9 days into the month. That's pretty good for me recently.

April was a quiet, but nice month for us. Easter was the beginning of the month this year and it was a beautiful day. The Easter bunny overdid himself with the kid's baskets, but made sure to bring them plenty of fun toys for spring break and the summer. The afternoon was spent at my in-laws' house in our 6th annual Easter egg hunt. The kids had so much fun hunting for eggs. Afterwards was our yummy Easter dinner. It was nice to spend a quiet relaxing day with family after the craziness of the past few weekends of home improvement.

Seeing their baskets for the first time

The kids enjoyed their Spring break a lot this year. I think it helped that they spent 4 days with people other than just me so they got to break up the monotony. I wish I could have spent more time with them, but I think I enjoyed having a break from the routine almost as equally as they did.

One of my favorite parts of April was the warmer weather, which meant it was time for grilling. I really miss this during the colder months because we grill so often during the summer (AKA, I don't have to cook). Todd was more than happy to get back to his grill and get the spring started.

We finally got to do our Easter/Spring pictures a few weeks later than usual. I love doing these pictures every year. Its so neat to compare them to the past years' pictures to compare how much the kids have grown since the past year.

And after multiple weekends of hard work, the floors were finally finished downstairs. It is amazing how much nicer it looks and feels. I am so grateful for Todd, his dad, and my dad for the hours they put into this project. The final room to complete was the playroom and it went really fast. Afterwards, I was so excited to finally be able to put our house and garage back together after 6 weeks of chaos and even happier to be able to park in the garage.

There are lots of happenings going on in May for our little family and I can't wait to share some big changes that are coming!
