Fun Times

Today was a great day.  We hopped in the car this morning and headed out to see Grandma and Grandpa at their lake house.  It was a nice relaxing visit.  The boys ran around...and around, we did some fishing and though it was WINDY we were able to take the boat out for a bit.  The kids had such a great time, and Randy and I did as well.  Grandpa bought the boys LOTS of treats...donuts, ice cream and fruit snacks!  The funny part is, I think Grandma got all the it!  Haha!
Randy and I both commented how much easier it is to travel now that Nate is growing up.  No more bottles, diapers and toys to haul here and there.  It's nice. :)

Easter was a lot of fun this year.  It was a new experience for Nate.  He doesn't remember anything about previous Easter holidays, so it was like his first.  He learned about the resurrection of a  3 year old way of course, and he LOVED hunting for eggs.  The egg hunting lasted for many, many, many days after Easter. :)
This Easter was also a new experience for me.  This was the first holiday that  I actually had some family to to my house for egg hunts and an Easter lunch.  I have never been the one in charge of hosting a holiday, and I've NEVER cooked a holiday meal.  My lunch ran a little behind schedule, but it turned out really well.  I was totally shocked.

Good Times

We did a little fishing weekend before last.  It was the first time we had all been fishing together.  We had so much fun!  Zachary caught 5 fish and was thrilled to beat Mom and Dad.  Nate was scared to death of the fish at first, but that quickly faded!  Looks like it's going to be a fun Spring.
