Happy Easter!

JJ had yet another magically day yesterday and today! It is so fun experiencing all the fun holidays in life with JJ! I remember the magic from when i was a child and now it is so fun to watch JJ enjoy life to the fullest! It must be so weird to be 2! You have no idea from one day to the next what's going to happen. He has no concept that on March 31st it's Easter! All he knows is he woke up this morning and he had a bunch of "special treats" as he calls them in his bucket and eggs left all around the house for him to open and enjoy what's inside! This morning wasn't his first Easter egg this year so he knew what to do! As he picked up each egg he shook it to try and figure out if that one contained candy! Since i am getting so sick of all the candy in his life, i requested the Easter bunny do very few with candy and put other fun things in them instead.

We went to our new ward's Easter Egg hunt! It was really fun!

Yesterday he colored eggs with grandma. He took it very seriously and loved it! 

Best buddies!

Then JJ wanted to eat them! I think he assumed since they were colorful, that they'd be could tell he didn't like it but was trying so hard to! We told him Grandpa loved colored Easter eggs so he wanted to share!

We offered him salt and pepper to see if that would help the taste. You could tell he thought he was so big putting the salt and pepper on all by himself!

After he had put the whole egg in his mouth he couldn't fake it anymore, he hated it!

But he loved his egg buddy!

Happy Easter everyone!

Loving the nice weather!

JJ likes to walk to the school any chance he gets! The weather has been so nice we can finally play outside! We're all LOVING IT! 

There's nothing cuter than a little boy hugging his mommy! :)

And a little boy playing tag with his daddy!

Such a fun night together as a family!

Good Friends

Good friends are the best! My favorite part about good friends is you can go while without seeing them but as soon as you're all together again, it feels like you just saw them yesterday! These are some of our favorite people (Jon as well, he just happened to dodge having his picture taken somehow). I'm so excited for our kids to grow up together! We laughed about what it was like before kids, we'd stay up until midnight, now our outings end at 7 or 8! But kids are the best and I know no one regrets having them! They just add members to our parties and the more the merrier when it comes to these precious kids!

Zach is getting so big! We were trying to get him to show off his walking skills but he was shy as soon as I got my big scary camera out! 

Hooray for Play-doh!!

JJ's face is priceless! He couldn't figure out why Zach didn't like it!

We try to take a picture of the 3 kids whenever we get together, but this is the closest we could get last night! All three are looking so I say it was a success! :)

Elle loved the Play-doh! But when she kept trying to eat it, we had to take it away. She wasn't very happy!

Elle LOVED Starfall! She's going to be reading in no time! :)

Is she not just the cutest?! When we asked JJ who his girlfriend was, he said,"Elle!" and can you blame him?! Look at that face! Plus they both love Play-doh and Starfall, they already have so much in common! haha

We love our friends! Come and play again soon! :)
