Wesley spent the night in Pigeon Forge with a cousin that was in town visiting, so today we took the girls to the Fountain City duck pond. We had fun, and we even ran into some friends from church while we were there.
Emma is a huge fan of animals, so she thought the duck pond was SO fun!
She was even brave enough to feed some from her hand.
Ava wasn’t so sure about the ducks.
After the duck pond we went across the street to eat at Froyoz.
We missed our buddy, but we had a fun day with these two cute girls of ours!
Earlier this week, Wesley and I went to the movies together. We saw the movie Soul Surfer.
It was SUCH a good movie! Wesley and I both LOVED it!
It was a fun date with my handsome little boy!
Easter weekend was so much fun this year!
Saturday, we had an Easter egg hunt, and dyed eggs at my Moms.
I love this picture of Olivia and Wesley. She loves him so.
Ava enjoyed watching the other kids hunt for eggs. ( She also decided to taste some grass. Yum. )
Emma started out only putting pink eggs in her basket. She is so girly. Notice the cute Easter egg necklace that she is wearing. She made it herself.
Wesley is an egg huntin pro.
After the egg hunt, we ate lunch and then dyed eggs.
Emma thought it was SO much fun!
It was a fun day!
Sunday morning when the kids woke up, they came downstairs to look in their Easter baskets.
We had an amazing church service. We spent the rest of the day visiting family and ate tons of delicious food!
I was so thankful that we were able to get some pictures of the kids in their Easter clothes.
I love this picture that Eric took.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!
Even though she is almost 11 months, I thought I’d go ahead and do a 10 month post. I needed a name for this post anyway.
It is really hard to believe at the end of next month we will be celebrating her FIRST birthday! This year has gone by so fast! Notice that she is not wearing a bow in this picture. I haven’t been as strict about bows with her as I was with Emma. HA!
Now this is more like it.
At 10 months Ava…
- Has 4 teeth. All on the bottom.
- Is pulling up, standing and will stand without holding onto something.
- Wears a size 3 diaper and 12-18 month in clothes, and size 3 shoes.
- Says Dada, Bye, and Hi. Will she ever say Mama???
- She has discovered food! Yay! She loves eating now! She had cantaloupe for the first time today and LOVED it!
- She loves reading books and playing with Wesley and Emma. She wants to be where they are and do what they are doing.
I was hoping to post some pictures of the new bunk beds, but we still haven’t gotten the bedding. It’s supposed to be here early next week, so hopefully I can put up some pictures then. We have had some issues with Pottery Barn Kids.
Emma loves her “steps bed”.
I’m really excited for Easter weekend. We have a big day planned for tomorrow. We are going over to my Mom’s for lunch, egg hunting and egg dying. Here is a picture of Emma and Ava’s Easter dresses.
More Easter posts to come!
We have had such beautiful weather lately! The kids have really enjoyed playing outside.
Wesley has even been doing some of his schoolwork outside.
Here is the gazebo with the canopy on now. We love it!
Emma (and Ava’s ) beds will be here on Tuesday. We will ALL be so glad when they get here! The sleeping arrangements at the Reagan house have everyone exhausted. I don’t think anyone is getting enough sleep. I’m hoping that all of the bedding will get here in time to have it all set up so I can post pictures.
The bedding I ordered is pink and green. I bought these striped plates at Hobby Lobby for a dollar a piece several months ago, but wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them. Then, I found these cute monogram stickers ( also at Hobby Lobby) and I’m thinking I will probably hang them up in their room somewhere.
Heather’s wedding was so beautiful! I can’t wait to post some pictures when Eric finishes them, which will probably be a while. He is a busy dude. He actually just got back home last night from another work trip. I’m so glad to have him home! I don’t plan on letting him leave again for a while. We are going on a date tomorrow so I better get my beauty rest! I need it!
I can’t believe it’s April!!!
It was a really beautiful weekend! Eric was out of town for a few days last week, and we were so happy to have him home! Saturday he put together this canopy/gazebo thing that we bought last Fall on clearance.
He still has to put the canopy on it, so I will be sure and post some pictures, when he gets it all together.
Sunday we took the kids to Dollywood.
This was Ava’s first trip to Dollywood, and she had so much fun!
We all had a great time!
After Dollywood we stopped for pizza, and then some ice cream!
Emma’s ice cream started out in her cone, and ended up in the cup.
Ava had a sample of her Daddy’s ice cream.
Another thing we did this weekend, was order Emma and Ava some bunk beds. We had planned on getting Emma a big girl bed in the next few months, but realized we needed to go ahead and do it because she has been waking up in the middle of the night crying and telling us that “her bed doesn’t fit her anymore”.
This is where she has been sleeping the past few nights, and we told her that she could sleep here until her bed arrives.
I’m really excited about the beds. I can’t wait to post pictures when we get the room all set up!
