Happy Easter

 Easter Morning at our house went well. I don't know how, but Blake forgot it was Easter when he woke up. Even though we talked about it right before bed and set out carrots and milk the for the Easter bunny. But that allowed us to let them play in Shawn's room while we got coffee, set up camera, etc.

 They specifically asked for a Scooby Doo and Mickey basket.  The only problem was they are super small and hardly hold anything.

Inhaling Candy

 Trying on their new masks
Tried the new color wonders bubbles from Crayola, seemed like a good idea and they are washable but we all looked like we were bleeding.
Beach Baby

All the boys made their own slide out of sand and floats
 Then they made a pool

 We took a break to go down to the club for their annual Easter egg hunt, it was raining so they were just hiding the eggs when we got there. Shawn and Blake were peeking, and laughing about it.
 With the Easter bunny, they wouldn't look up
                   The metallic eggs had real Sacajawea $1.00 coins, we got a couple, only at the Club, lol.
Playing games
Cousins playing trucks, they are getting along....for the moment

The boys playing football and we are running out of light

  1. Spend More Time With Your Children
    It does not matter if you work full time or part time. Maybe you stay at home with your children but you are working from home. Even if you stay home with your children, you are busy trying to get everything done. No matter who you are, you probably think that you are not spending enough time with your children. Quality time, that is. There are many ways to spend more time with your children.
    Your children do not need to play every sport or do every extracurricular activity out there. You could spend all of your time running your children from one practice to another. Pick just one or two activities that your children love and stick with them.
    Plan family dinners where everyone sits at the table, eats, and talks about their day.
    Make dinners special so everyone likes to spend time together while eating.
    Let your children help when you are working on things.
    They can help fix dinner, clean, and fix things. Children learn by watching and doing. Chores can turn into time together so that they are much more enjoyable.
    Do things that your children want to do.
    It is hard when the house is a mess but get on the floor and play with your children. Play games that they enjoy. Have a movie night and watch their favorite movie.
    Find things that you enjoy doing together.
    Arts and crafts can be a big hit. NightArt is helping bring parents and children together. You can design a drawing and watch it light up together.
    No one feels like they spend enough time with their children. However, you need to make the most of time spent together, instead of worrying if you are spending enough time together. Find things that you enjoy doing together, like NightArt. Check it out at It will bring out the artist in everyone, bringing families together.
