So this is what we have been up to lately
Potting flowers (because all the ones we put in the ground in the back yard get trampled by the doggies...but I still wouldn't trade them for the world!)

Playing in the backyard naked...I PROMISE I dress my children, but the only thing they ever want to wear these days is their birthday suits. I try and try again to put their clothes on them, but they immediately take them back off and it ends up just being not a battle I want to pick because there are waaaay to many others if you know what I mean.

Sweet Bella laying around being lazy. That is why we love her so!

Doing art projects inside when it gets too hot in the middle of the day (what happened to Spring?)

Spending some time at the zoo...they both HAD to have their maps when we walked in. Monkey see, Monkey do

speaking of monkeys

It was so hot they even got to get snow cones...BIG points for mommy!

Feeding some fishies

And some goats. Hunter LOOOOVED "grooming" them. I think he might be a train conductor and a zoo keeper when he grows up.

And ending our little outing with a carousel ride...can you tell they are veeeery sleepy?? But did they sleep? Nope. No pacie remember?

AND THEN...Hunter and Drake got a package in the mail from Aunt B!!!!! Just look what she made them!!!!!!! (Did I mention that in the last post, their Aunt Jenny made all the Tshirts that they were wearing with the alligators and cars on them, along with 2 others that I LOVE?? My sisters in law are soooo crafty and talented!!!! I am lucky!)

And not only that, but she also sent them this for giving up their pacies. They were soooo excited and we have now watched Toy Story literally about 10 times in the past 6 days. Thank you so much Brittny!!!! We all LOVED the package!

(one of many picture watching the movie)

And last getting haircuts yesterday outside. Both boys needed a good cut since it was getting so hot and we are about to go to the beach. Drake was starting to look like Grandpa Munster with his frizzy hair poking out the sides

Oh my heavens where has the time gone...Easter Post!!!

We have been so consumed with getting rid of pacies that I forgot to do an Easter Post! I am going to zip it and just post mostly pics.

Our first Egg Hunt

Drake waiting in line to hunt eggs and not very excited about it

Whereas Hunty was itching to go!

Drakers was a little hesitant at first at all the hubbub of Easter

Drake also looked up the slide???

Hunter was a pro egg finder

Hunty proud of his eggs!

Even after the hunt Drake was still a little hesitant about all that was going on.

But finally he found his friend Vivian and they went into the playhouse and sat and ate a bunch of candy..I caught them in the act!

The next egg hunt,
Drake was still not too excited.

I either held him or he stood perfectly still for the first 3/4th of it. But after finally convincing him that there was candy in the eggs he decided to look for himself.

Hunty really getting into this one!

Look at all those EGGS!!!

After the hunt, instead of playing, this is what my children did until we had to pry their baskets of candy filled eggs from their hands and make them go play with their friends (we are so mean!)

All the kiddos from the egg hunt. Hunter was NOT happy about having to take a group picture and started taking off his shoes and socks (I guess he thought "THAT WOULD GET US"!!!!)

Easter morning: This is the ONLY picture I got of just my 2 children on ridiculous and sad is that!

Drake with his flower to put on the cross

Mimi helping Drake put it on the cross

Hunty getting to find a high spot on the cross with Da..a great place to be if you wanna reach something high!

Picture with Mimi and Da

And then all the boys wanted to do was run around the fountain at church or throw leaves in the water...BOYS!

We then went to Mimi and Da's for Easter lunch. The Easter bunny at their house brought the boys some golf bags and clubs! (I apologize, Kyle took about 200 fabulous picture JUST of them playing golf)

Hunty cooking with Mimi

And doing one of his favorite things there...

Drakey thanking Nonny, his great grandmother, for the basket she gave him.

Hunty and Drakey with their baskets from Nonny

????? I think a little too much Easter lunch. Ready to go home and see if the Easter Bunny came to our house!

Oh we got home and he had come!!!!! Hunting for eggs the bunny hid.

And instead of baskets, the bunny gave them buckets filled with fun things for our beach trip coming up in a few weeks! How did that bunny know???!!!

If you are still looking at this post I am so amazed and inmpressed with your attention span. But here are just a few more pictures of going to see the Easter Bunny with our friends Drew (Hunty's best friend) and Dawson. Dawson and Drake were soooo terrified of the bunny and would not go near him, but Hunter and Drew couldn't get enough!
