April 2015

Sadie insisted on having the toy car on the way home from church. I can see why. It's clearly a very comforting toy...
I *think* we were going to dye eggs, so we put the little aprons on the little girls.

EASTER EGG HUNT! Happy Easter, with the Fitzgeralds.
This was a ridiculously wet spring. It was unlike anything I've experienced in Texas thus far. We've been in a drought since we've lived here, and suddenly, in  one spring, the lake is so full they have to let water out of it. Crazy. Anyhow, it was a soggy lawn Easter egg hunt with well over a hundred plastic eggs. Bring on the candy!

Cole started swim lessons at the gym through Safe Splash. I'm able to work it since I have a membership and can put the two little girls in the gym child care and then bring Tessa in with me. I have to be in there, and bringing the whole nutty tribe was not going to happen. Cole loves to swim. he has grown leaps and bounds since he's started, despite the many different coaches that have rolled on through.
 Mom and Duke, through lots of crazy events, finally sold their home in Preston, Idaho and moved to Texas! They moved in with us for a couple of months and then found a home about 25 minutes away, more in the country, and closer to the lake. We're so happy to have them here. Months later, and it's still surreal that we have family nearby.
My girls.
The Twin Tower missionaries came to dine. They are both very, very tall and their companionship made for constant commentary ...and probably a lot of talk about basketball. Here they are jumping not the trampoline after bouncing the kids on it for a while.
And then the longest body I've ever seen flip around. Impressive.
The bluebonnets. We took Grandma L and the kids to see the bluebonnets nearby. Paige had a fit and wanted nothing to do with them. I think she was afraid of bugs at the time. Ironically, while standing on the sidewalk, refusing to go back into the flowers, she got bit by fire ants. 
Then Sadie had a breakdown when it was time to leave. One crying until we left, and the other starts up because we left. Whatever.

The nature preserve by our house. So pretty.
 May 2, 2015 was the Belmont Stakes race horse. So, we donned our hats to watch it. Go, American Pharaoh!
