Easter 2008

Kaitlyn has been very concerned how the Easter Bunny would hide eggs in the snow, but he did it! The kids loved decorating eggs on Saturday. And Sunday morning they had fun exploring their Easter baskets, then going outside to search for eggs. Kaitlyn ran all over the yard picking up eggs. By the end of it she was having more fun running that finding the eggs! Tyler of course didn't get the concept, though he did put a few eggs in his basket most of the time he just enjoyed wandering around outside. Inside, Kaitlyn emptied all the eggs to discover what was in them. And Tyler stuffed his mouth with chocolate!
It was such a nice afternoon that we pulled out our rollerblades (for the first time in at least 7 years - scary!) so we could keep up with Kaitlyn as she tried out her new scooter.

Tyler Eats With A Spoon!

One more milestone for Tyler - he has learned how to use a spoon to feed himself. I just can't believe how big he is getting. He's a toddler now, not our little baby.

A Day at the Children's Museum

We took the kids to the Discovery Gateway for the first time. All I can say is wow, that place is designed for kids to play, play, play. Kaitlyn's favorites were the grocery store cash register and the water table. I think Tyler liked the cars/motorcycle the best. The only drawback is that the kids want to play much longer than the adults are interested in it. So next time we'll go on a day that isn't very busy and I'll just sit down somewhere with my book and let the kids have at it!
