Baby bunnies

My cousin brought over two baby bunnies to my grandma's house today and the kids loved them! Maybe we will have to get some of our own one day. Here are a few pictures of my son Lincoln and daughter Trinity and their cousin Landon.

Commons playground

Had a quick visit to the Commons playground this afternoon. Love that place! Met a new friend and the kids had a great time.

Flower box

Here is an artistic picture of a flower box I had planted last year with the help of the kids. After playing with some special effects I came up with this fun image.

Transformer boy

Lincoln loves his new Optimus Prime robot mask (from his grandma Nini) so much that he actually fell asleep in it this afternoon. I guess Transformers are his new favorite cartoon!

Well, I am not on Facebook anymore. I don't know about you, but I have never been a huge fan of the site. Yeah, it's great to connect with people you would not normally come across in your day to day life, but in general - it drives me crazy. I don't think I have to go into too much detail as to why it drives me bananas, because I think most people can relate and have similar feelings.

It is just so hard to cut the cord, but I finally did and you know what? I really have not missed it. So now, if you want to get a hold of us or catch up, you have to look us up in the phone book or shoot us an email (and vice versa). And that's not too bad!


I love these little Candace Crocs I bought for my daughter Trinity a few months ago in preparation for the upcoming summer, but a couple days ago at my in-laws Easter celebration she lost one. We all searched the house over from top to bottom until my husband and I finally gave in and went home with only her right shoe. I contemplated going ahead and ordering another pair to get us by because they are practically the only shoes she will wear and I was convinced it would be awhile before the lonely croc would be found. Thankfully I did not have to follow through, because my father-in-law graciously showed up at our house this morning bright and early after finding her purple footwear out in the middle of their yard. How they ended up out there I don't know, but I am just happy to have the pair together again. Ah, life with toddlers, it is always something!

Peeking flowers

After living in our home for two and a half years, I am finally getting some flowers established. When we first moved, there were absolutely no domestic plants. None. Zip. Zero. Nada.

So, needless to say I am very thankful for family members who have shared their plants with me, which have proven hardier than the few plants I have bought and sprinkled throughout my newly laid garden plots.

Anyways, here are a few pictures of the budding flowers around our house.

Mushroom hunting

We finally made it out into the woods and hunted up some morels! My husband and I found about fifteen. It's a bit less than what we normally find, but this season seems a little sparse in our normal go-to spots. And the season as a whole has started much earlier than normal since our winter has been so mild this year.
