Summer is coming! It's getting hot! We got Drake and Kera a new swimming pool yesterday. Last year we had a baby splash pad, but Cori- our old dog... she chew it to pieces. We found this lovely pool!! Drake and Kera have so much fun in it. Now that my husband knows how to grill, I see many days this summer out in our back yard. About time, we've only lived here two and a half years!

Today has been such a busy day. This morning I went shopping by myself to score some deals, and to go shopping with my gift card my mommy got me for my birthday. Then we got up after nap time, and took the kids outside. We walked, we played with chalk, we played with the basket ball, and we washed the cars FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN OUR DRIVEWAY! Yeah that's right, we've been here almost 2.5 years, and it's the first time to wash our cars in our own drive way!! Meanwhile, hamburgers were cooking on the grill for lunch/dinner.That's right, my husband now knows how to grill!!! Woo hoo!! Not our traditional lunch, because Dane and I had a Free Dave Ramsey class to attend tonight. So DeDe came to watch the kids while Dane and I attended that class. It's been a long, exhausting day, but oh so much fun!

This morning we got Drake and Kera up and Kera was jumping like a monkey like she usually does.
While we change their diapers, they will go and read the books that we keep in their room for bed time stories. They just started a few weeks ago climbing up in the rocker :)
Before breakfast they ran straight to their Easter baskets. Kera loved Drake's car haha. They each had an egg of peanut butter m&m's before breakfast.
While they were eating breakfast Dane and I went to hide some plastic eggs in the living room to have a mini egg hunt. So after breakfast they looked for the eggs :). I love watching them hunt eggs. Drake would leave his basket on the floor and run to get all the eggs. Then he would come back and put them in his basket and off he went again. Towards the end when Drake had accumulated a lot of eggs, Kera went to Drakes basket and kept stealing his eggs putting them into her basket.
After nap time, we ate lunch. Then we took a walk to the park. They walked too, we didn't use their stroller. Along the way Drake and Kera helped Daddy press flowers into a book.
That was pretty much the extent of our Easter, it was low key, and I enjoyed spending it with my three loves!

Today after we woke up and ate breakfast we dyed some eggs :). Drake and Kera had a great time throwing the eggs in the dye. It went entirely too fast, and next year we'll have to boil a lot more than a dozen eggs. Ok, so we boiled more than a dozen, but we ate a lot of them last night :).
Kera loved dying easter eggs, and Drake thought the egg picker upper thing was a bubble blowing wand. :)
After nap time we went to Grammie and Pee Paw's house. We just hung out, Grammie gave the kids their Easter baskets - super cute, and then PeePaw, Uncle Green, and myself hid the Easter eggs for the kids to find. Drake and Kera were amazing. I didn't really think they would understand the concept yet, but they did! It was super cute watching them prance around, sure I had to help them, and say "Do you see an egg". They would look around and they would find it. Sometimes they couldn't reach it, other times they would grab it and put it in their basket. I love this age!
