Easter 2016

Despite the allergies and the pollen we had a lot of fun on Easter hiding eggs. 
This was the first year little W could really get into it.
And boy did he get in to it. We hid eggs for hours.

He even had fun helping his big sister.







He discovered just how fun bubbles can be!


What a lovely day.

Spring break- Azalea time

It's Azelea season in Louisiana, which means it's the perfect time to take spring pictures. This year we just popped across the street to my mom's neighbor's beautiful yard.

It's hard to get good pics of a wiggly moving toddler, but I did it!
Success!

My beautiful girl is growing up so quickly! 
9 years old now.

And in just a few months, this cutie will be 2!

This is one of my favorite pictures of them ever!

Joy is contagious.

We also took pics Easter Sunday in the beautiful church gardens.
How I managed to capture this perfect pic, I will never know.
He looks so grown up here.



So beautiful.

This is such a beautiful and peaceful place. I miss my this church. If we loved here, I think I would be in these gardens all the time.



And end with a selfie of my favorite girl.

Blessed beyond measure.

Spring break- week 1

Well it's been quiet here on the blog, but that's because we've been travelling! The kids and I headed down to Nana's house for a 3 week stay in the warm, green, pollen filled paradise that is Louisiana in the springtime.

It was my first trip travelling with two kids by myself and it went surprisingly well.

W is fascinated by all things planes, trains, trucks, and cars, so he was in HEAVEN.

Wearing him in my new Tula carrier really helped. We had a 6 hour layover and I even got a nap out of him with him riding on my back.

Spring leaves haven't yet started to appear in our little corner of Montana, so it has been awesome for the kids to be able to play outside and explore nature.


Both the kids are fascinated by insects. Entomology is kind of A's thing. She's even studying it in 4H. The rolly polly they found brought back many memories form my childhood. Spring days spent searching for as many as we could find.

Little W even loved having it crawl all over him! All boy right here, this one is.

I love my mom's house and her backyard and I always feel so at peace here. Sometimes a girl just needs to come home.

Seeing our lizard friends everyday basking in the warm sunshine brought smiles to our faces.

Even with her allergies bothering her from the pollen in the air, A still spent time outside and of course I found her set up reading.

W got his first taste of a Louisiana specialty....crawfish!
The look on his face was priceless!


They were so yummy!

A got into the act and ate a ton!

It was a perfect first week. We head home in the morning and I'll continue to share some of our amazing Louisiana adventures.
