Riley, Tyler & Brody wresting together.
The same Sunday, we decided that Nathan's hair was just getting way too long and maybe we should give him a buzz. Since Auntie Erika is a pro, buzzing Jeremy and Riley once a month, we let her have the honors. She was also the one with the fabulous idea to give him a lollipop to keep him occupied during the process. This was the greatest trick ever! He sat still and content the whole time. He could have cared less what was going on, on top of his head.
The following Saturday, we held our annual neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt. The kids had a blast despite the cold, winter-like March morning. At least we didn't have to hide them in the snow. And whatever will we do when the neighborhood actually finishes construction and we no longer have an empty cul-de-sac.
Waiting for the rest of the kids to arrive, about 50+ in total.
Cameron, Lizzy & Gracie getting cheesy for the camera.
Tyler & Nathan matched all the boys in the neighborhood.
It's official, The Children's Place is where to go for boys Easter clothes.
Nathan hammin it up in his new digs.
Gracie & Tyler's coloring "egg"stravaganza
Two weeks ago Gracie participated in the Spring Dance Concert for The Dance Club. Many hours of regular practice, dress rehearsals, tech rehearsals, etc. paid off. She did a great job and kept a smile on her face through the whole performance. She had a great time dancing to "Roller Coaster Ride" from Lilo and Stitch. The boys really struggled to make it through the concert. They made it through her dance and then Dad dashed them home. Even Mom and Gracie weren't able to make it through all 3 hours, even though all the dancers were fantastic, especially the older "company" dancers.
