Spring time Friday fun

Today was a GORGEOUS day in Austin! It was 90 degrees and we had a fun, fun filled day! It started out with a 3 mile brisk morning walk around the Town Lake trail with Leslie, Savannah and Brayden Sheiner. After our walk, Savannah and Gavin played in the water fountain to cool off and played chase while the Mommy's caught our breath.

The afternoon sunshine brought out sidewalk chalk and bug spray. Gavin has been getting eaten alive by the bugs when we play outside so we stocked up on bug spray and didn't let the bugs stop our creativity on the sidewalk with our new toy. Gavin and I drew on the sidewalk while London slept in his swing in the doorway and supervised from the shade.

The fun continued into the evening with pizza and ice cream cones at the Parker's. We played in the backyard with ALL of Hunter's toys and came home with Gavin's clothes in a bag which were soaking wet and muddy. Ahhh, boys will be boys. London and Hudson were happy, snuggly little babies. I can't imagine what this crew will be doing a year from now. These boys are all bound to be good friends.

Good times in Austin! Thanks for the fun day, Sheiner's and Parker's!!

We had such a fun Easter since Gavin picked up on the concept of hunting eggs. We went to an Easter Egg hunt on Saturday where we saw the Easter Bunny, rode a mini train pulled by a tractor (two of our favorite things) and hunted eggs. When I say hunt I mean that 1-3 year olds and their parents ran around picking up eggs that were scattered across the grass. I am telling you, it was competitive and the eggs disappeared quick! We only got ONE egg and Gavin proceeded to throw it in the fountain! Oh well!

The Easter Bunny did not go over so well. Fear is the first word that comes to mind. Gavin was having nothing to do with the Easter Bunny and cried super hard and wanted as far away as possible. On the other hand, his cousin Sawyer couldn't get enough. Sawyer went back three times to sit on the Easter Bunny's lap and cried when they took him away.

Sunday we went to a nice church service, had a fabulous brunch that Kristen made, hunted eggs with Sawyer in his yard, and then moved on to our third and final egg hunt at the Bush's where there was quite the crowed and plenty of eggs to go around. It was great to see all of our dear friends and all of the sweet kids.

Thanks to Michelle Bush and Kristen Koester for such a wonderful weekend!
