Its been raining the last few days. The kids have enjoyed it so much.

We're loving how green the acreage is getting.

the acreage.

With everything going on with our Lethbridge house, its been so heart breaking to think of the possibility of leaving the acreage. I knew we'd love it when we moved out here but didn't know we'd love it this much. I love our evenings of all being outside working on the yard. I know in 10 years this wont be fun for the kids but for now, they love being out there with us and its so special. Last night I had to run into town and as I was driving down our driveway it was covered with pheasants and deer. Its been a year and it still seems so surreal that this is our new normal. 


We did Easter on Friday morning this year, so the kids could open up their baskets and see they got a hotel stay too! Of course it was such a busy morning getting out the door that day I didn't get any pictures of them opening their baskets, oops. We did just a really small basket since they'd be getting to go sleep over at a hotel and go swimming. So the boys got stuff for the pool! Lucy got some clothes.  Levi also got some books, I can't believe how well he's reading and how fast he's picking it up!

Leilani hosted Easter this year and it was so fun! The kids had a blast. She did so much for them. Scavenger hunt, easter egg hunt & easter egg decorating. 

We decided to try out a new hotel since it had a bigger waterslide, once we checked in and got to our room it was so far away from everything and only had an outdoor entrance. Plus it was so gross, so after cleaning up as best as we could Lucy's car seat explosion we checked out and headed back to our other hotel we like. Ahh it felt so much better!

Once settled into the new hotel we tried to get the kids to go to sleep. Will didn't crash till 11pm... oh vay! 

After a yummy breakfast the boys were so ready to go swimming! Also Will wore a swimsuit, he just hadn't changed yet.. 

 The water wings and goggle we got the boys were the smartest thing we ever did. They were so independent and happy!

They had so much fun, it makes the lack of sleep worth it. I think it'll have to be a new tradition to just do a small trip for Easter instead of big easter baskets. 

And I found this gem Dave took of Will on our way home... ha!

8 Months - Lucy

I just had to double check if I already wrote this post, because I swear I just wrote one. Time is going way faster then I can believe and this post is 10 days late.  

I was working at my desk and looked over and saw lucy doing this with her blanket. A ver good representation of her personality these days. She loves peek a boo. 

16 lbs 13 oz (still!)
4th ear infection, on the wait list for tubes in her ears.
pulled up on furniture for the first time this week
still haven't found a food she doesn't like, she's an eater
She started sleeping better but the poor ear infection interrupted that, ouch!

one of my favorite things lately is how bashful she is. I'm thinking she'll be our shy kid. she tucks her head away when someone she doesn't know talks to her. she loves to cuddle and falls asleep easily cuddling with Dave. 

Lucy has started this fake little laugh. Almost like a sympathy laugh at our crazy antics to get her to laugh. And this onesie is a pretty good representation of how we feel about her teething. oh vay!

Oh goose we just love you so.
