Splash pad

My sister-in-law, Shannon, invited Wyatt and I for a little playdate at the splash pad. Wyatt was a little apprehensive at first, but once he realized it was FUN, he kept himself occupied...

Oh, and he found this random beach ball? Hahaha!

Oh hey! Lilly's head! Poor girl wasn't interested AT ALL in the water fun...and the other cousin, Jacob, was running around all over the place and having fun with all the other kids. I think Wyatt is secretly jealous that he can't run and keep up with them yet...maybe one day, but right now he's good all by his lonesome.

It was really fun, and I'm planning on going back sometime. Thanks Shannon for inviting us!

Easter Time

Happy Easter!

Today was a busy Easter Sunday. We woke up early to enjoy our own Easter traditions...

...and of course, sample some of the fine goodies the Easter Bunny brought:
(apparently it's acceptable to eat chocolate first thing in the morning...)

...and then we headed off to my parent's house to see what the Easter Bunny brought us there! Surprise, we got lots of goodies!! ;)
 While there, we enjoyed a waffle breakfast and went to church with my family...

...we also had a little photo session with Wyatt in his bunny ears...

...and Daddy tried them on too, which was WAY more entertaining...

...and then we headed off to spend time with Jeff's parents and family and eat dinner...

...and WHAT?? ANOTHER visit from the Easter Bunny?! Wyatt is one lucky kid...

(He must've eaten his weight in food today...)

He had the coolest little truck in his Easter makes noise and everything! He loves it.

And while there, Wyatt experienced his first Easter Egg hunt. I'm not sure he quite understood what was happening, but he eventually got the gist of it: find the eggs and throw them in the basket.

Cute, cute, cute.

I'm so glad our families live so close. It makes spending time with each other easy and fun, and we always love seeing them. Happy Easter everyone!

just Wyatt.

The kid cracks me up every day.

I'm all about color lately...

I haven't opened up a box of YEARS.

I decided that I should probably introduce Wyatt into the world of coloring...and I bought my first box of Crayons. I LOVE THEM. I love how new and unused and perfect they look. I love how they smell.
 I love how all these different colors come in one package.

And Wyatt?? Well...he hasn't quiet grasped the concept of coloring...but he does appreciate the vibrant colors and wanted to pull every one of them out and inspect it...

Wyatt's love affair...

...with the stofzuiger.

My dad vacuums...constantly.
Wyatt naturally was attracked to the noisy beast, and is now completely infatuated.
It's become his number one favorite toy he loves to play with.

my deco is limited

I've come to realize that Easter is probably one of my favorite holidays. I love springtime, and bright colors, and celebrating the Ressurection of Christ (and just how the Easter Bunny relates to Christ, I have no clue...)

I've also come to realize I don't have very many Easter decorations... with what little I do have, I decided to decorate a little nook in our entertainment center for now...

...and next on my wish list is a Christus statue...maybe that's what the Easter Bunny will bring me, haha!!
