April, In Pictures

Things are settling back down to normal around here.  Tax season is over and we're getting back into the routine of both Mommy & Daddy being around.  I do realize I haven't posted many pictures lately, so here's our April, in pictures.  Prepare for picture overload, and enjoy.

Paige in her Easter dress with Star the unicorn at the botanical gardens.

Paige and Daddy relaxing with books in the spring/ summer ready back yard.

The Easter Bunny was good to us.  To all of us.  First to Paige.

And also to Mommy, Daddy, and Grammy.  Mommy got the Kinder Egg, Daddy got a Perry, and Grammy got a selection of sugar free candies.  We all got bubbles.

Daycare had an Easter egg hunt and party.  We both took off work to make it and had a blast.

Easter Sunday was spent with Ronnie's Dad and Step Mom at their crawfish boil.  The drive to New Orleans was completely worth it.

Paige decided she wanted to learn to boil for herself. 

The weekend after Easter Paige needed a new bike.  14 inch?  Legs not fully extended. 16 inch?  Legs still not fully extended.  18 inch????!!!!????  Yep.  

That weekend was also Girls Day with Grammy, Aunt Glennis and cousin Nicole.  We made a trip to Bellingrath Gardens to see the azaleas in bloom.  Paige got to meet Aslan from Chronicles of Narnia.  To be honest, I'm not sure what the lions name is supposed to be, but that's what we've named him.

April 16th is my birthday.  We had a few friends over that Saturday.  Ronnie and Paige baked my cake, as usual.  This year I asked for a cake I had when I was a kid, R2-D2.  Same cake pan by the way.  It's a 30 year old cake pan and used sparingly these days.

Paige and Daddy planted me some pretty flowers for my birthday since they'll last longer than cut flowers.  They even planted my favorite- daisy's.

Most recently, Tia Patti and Uncle Hal celebrated their 15th anniversary with an awesome party.  It was an 80's theme, at the skating rink.  Paige started learning to skate.

I think that catches you up on our April so far.  We'll close out the month with Relay for Life Friday night.

Thanks, Beth. My Mom made the Easter dress and I think it's gorgeous! As for the cake, well, if Zoodle needs an R2 cake next year, let me know. I'll UPS the pan to you.
