Spring so far in pictures

Heath had friends in town a couple of weeks ago, so we spent the night at my parents' house. We were spoiled - GiGi and Collins and I went for pedicures, and Pop Pop entertained the other 2 hoodlums for the whole day. Thank you Gigi and Pop Pop! We even squeezed in a visit to sweet Nanny!
A few weeks ago we went with our buddy Hughston to the park in Leeds. It was really fun!
Check out the 3-story slide!! I went down it twice (all in the name of "helping John Burke") and it was really fun!!
John Burke cuddled up to this lady - her name was Angela. He is shameless, and I was feeding the baby, so he took matters in his own hands and found a chaperone for the merry-go-round.
This is Angela's daughter, Savannah (we met them at the park that day, but I know their names because John Burke thought they adopted him and let Savannah carry him around the whole park and play with him. Win/win for me - he was entertained, and I was able to hold and feed the baby!) Funny moment when Savannah's mom told them to be careful getting off the merry-go-round because they were going to "act drunk." Hmmm...
Look who has started smiling all the time - I just can't capture a very flattering picture of it!
Our sweet friend's sister was taking bunny pictures in Trussville last weekend, so we were all over them!
They loved the live bunnies!
John Burke as Mona Lisa with a bunny
She got to hold the bunny too - not that she notices anymore. I found her in her carseat today with a Woody doll (from Toy Story) and a chainsaw from John Burke's toy toolbox
Then Aunt Stacy had all the cousins over to play with some baby chicks in the spirit of Easter
Seconds after this picture, John Burke loved the chick a little too hard. It pooped (a LOT) and then laid lame. Eventually I saw it hold its head up, but Stacy and I thought it was dead, which of course Kate tuned in on. But, I checked with Derek yesterday and he couldn't tell which one it was, so I am hoping it made a full recovery?! The kid is a destroyer. But he really is not mean spirited - for the most part, just too ROUGH for his own good!
Some shots from the car the other day. Turner is WAY obsessed with anything Toy Story - here he has a Toy Story shirt on, while holding Buzz and Woody. I hear quotes from the movie all the time - yesterday he was standing in the laundry room saying "You've got the wrong Buzz" over and over again.
"Oh no you won't take my picture!"
Since being outside a lot, John Burke is OBSESSED with animals. He loves geese and yells "Hey geese geese!" every time we see them. (He also loves to point out any kind of body of water. He calls them all ponds. It took us a while to figure out what he was saying because he gets so excited and screams "POOOOOOOOONNNNNDDD!" until you acknowledge it.) So, he was in heaven when we visited a local pond the other night and saw these - we also saw turtles, swans and ducks. He was LOVING it!
We love having a street that we can play on and room to run around at our new house

Collins plays football, too
And we are trying to master riding a bicycle (still with training wheels)
A few pictures from Turner's spring program at school
He sang a little bit more than he did in his Thanksgiving program - we didn't let him know where we were sitting, and I think it made him participate more. He loved hiding behind the other kids more than singing, but he was not shy.
Tried to get a sweet picture of the bumblebees Turner and Hughston - and then one of Turner next to his artwork
On Good Friday, Pap came to visit. The boys waited by the door screaming his name with such glee until they saw his truck pull in the driveway. They LOVE their Pap, and he made their day when he continued MeMe's tradition of bringing them Easter baskets full of their favorite things!
Here were their Easter outfits - still so weird to have a dress in the mix! It was like dressing a baby doll!
Their Easter baskets
I didn't have it in me this year to make a bunny cake like I usually do, so I tried these doughnut bunnies instead for our Easter lunch.
Attempt at Easter pictures

Not sure what she is doing here, but I was just glad they weren't screaming or crying!
Grandkid picture at GiGi and Pop Pop's house for Easter lunch
Makeshift Easter egg hunt
Still trying for a sweet Easter picture (and I just realized I spent hours trying to find an Easter dress and didn't even get a picture. Oh well - not too sad about that!)

And we finished the Easter celebration with a nice Jeep ride
The true spirit of Easter...
Matthew 28:6 - "He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come see the place where he was lying."


  1. Definitely imagine that that you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the easiest thing to understand of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed whilst other folks consider concerns that they just do not realize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and outlined out the whole thing with no need side effect , folks can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
