chocolate and raisins

Hey everyone! I hope you are having a superb week so far! Mine has been extremely busy and hectic. I just started a new job and while it's been really fun and challenging, its also sucked up my spare time. But, it's never too late to share pictures of cute kids and Easter eggs, right?

This weekend we had some family come into town to celebrate Easter with us. Chloe and Elinor's cousin visited, so we were able to have a really fun Easter egg hunt and egg dying adventure. This year was probably the first one where we really went all out with the candy and Easter baskets. Up until now my kids were so young that they were equally excited about raisins AND chocolate, so I usually just put raisins in the eggs. This year there was definitely an excess of chocolate and sugar. Tis the season, right?

Have a good rest of your week! I'll see you around. 

Easter 2016


Well, here we are in the middle of the week, and I'm late in posting some photos from Easter! To be honest, the past weekend was a whirlwind of travel, head colds, and excessive chocolate. We drove to my parents to visit the new baby lamb (isn't Suzy cute?), hold some baby chicks, and see grandparents and cousins. It was nice to get back home and get ready for the week.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! It's currently rainy and dreary outside, but once the sun shines again, I'm sure there will be green grass and flowers everywhere! Here's to Spring!

the children are sleeping

Happy Sunday! I hope your day of rest and grocery shopping (at least in this house) is going well. As you might have guessed from the title, both of my little ones are sleeping.  And at the same time!!  In celebration I decided to share a few photos from our past week.

Happy belated Easter by the way!  We had a great time visiting with my parents in Idaho. We had an Easter egg hunt, painted eggs, and ate a delicious dinner.  My mother is an amazing cook, so the delicious dinner is pretty standard perk of visiting them.

Chloe had lots of fun hunting for eggs in the yard.  This year we actually put candy inside instead of the raisins she got last year. We are trying our best to keep her away from candy, but holidays are definitely the exception to that rule.

My parents have a small farm with a couple cows, two (pregnant) sheep, a horse, chickens, and some barn cats and kittens.  Chloe was over the moon about all the animals.  She helped grandma feed them every morning and night.

This was taken right before she headed out in the morning with grandma.

We found some newborn kittens up on top of the haystack!

Elinor got to visit some animals too, but she mostly slept through it.

The trip was a success, minus the fact that Chloe somehow managed to get the croup.  She has been suffering with a terrible cough the past few days.  Today she seems much better, so hurray for that!

We got to see some wildlife on our drive back.  These guys were right outside of West Yellowstone. They were only a few miles from Yellowstone Park, eating some of the newly budding grass by the side of the road.  It was pretty cool. Don't mind the bugs on the windshield in this photo (oops).
