We started the Easter celebration with an egg hunt at church the weekend before. Gage went to his class but Hunter helped Matt and I set up for the pot luck lunch that occurred before the hunt. We always enjoy helping out with that if possible.

(Little Miss Parker is 23 weeks now)

On Good Friday, I was off work and Gage was out of school so surprising Hunter and eating lunch with him was a must. Gage was beyond excited to go see him and to go to the "big school". He packed a lunch and was ready to go!

Love these two!
Our Easter plans got changed a lot this year. On Saturday morning Gage woke up not feeling well. The poor guy couldn't keep anything down. Therefore, we stay home and skipped out on the annual egg hunt at my aunt's house. Saturday night he wasn't feeling much better so we had to miss church as well. Wasn't worth risking getting other little ones sick. He woke up feeling a lot better but didn't have all of his energy back. We did make it to Matt's moms (no little ones) and hung out at the house.

Parker is now 24 weeks. She is getting bigger and bigger. Easter was a rough day.. she is growing so fast my poor joints and bones can't keep up :-)

Playing with the bubble machine was a must. It is hard to see in this picture but I don't know who enjoyed them the most- Kaiser, Hunter or Gage.

Baseball and more

Family pic with Parker being between 21 and 22 weeks. Not a very flattering pic of the baby bump.. I will do better next time. At this moment I was having a braxton hicks contraction so heck I was doing the best I could :-)

 My handsome and silly boys before school

Baseball games are in full force now. Hunter has games on Monday's and Thursdays mostly starting at 7:00. Boy we are going to be tired!! Doesn't he look handsome?!?

 Matt is helping coach again this year. He is such the best Dad.
Speaking of being the best Dad.. he took Gage on his school field trip to the zoo. I am so glad they got to spend this time together and I know it meant the world to Gage. They started off with a trip to Chic-fil-A and then off to the zoo for some fun. Love them!

Parker and Atlanta

Baseball season has started and Gage has enjoyed going to the practice field and playing. Him and his friend Sawyer keep each other entertained while we watch big brother :-)

Little Miss Parker's picture at 19 weeks. She is a major wiggle worm for the ultrasounds and loves to make it hard for the person to check on her completely. On this visit we got to see her in 4D and boy did that fill my heart. She is just precious and we can't wait to meet her. However, I am scared to death of those legs and feet the bigger she gets. haha!

During spring break for the boys we decided to take a weekend and get away to Atlanta, GA to visit Legoland. I think the boys were equally excited about staying in a hotel as they were Legoland. We were fortunate to find a very nice hotel with a pleasant experience (minus the noisy neighbors who didn't teach their kids manners on hotel etiquette).
Enjoying breakfast at Egg Harbor (don't quote me but I think that is the name of the place) Very good breakfast and service. Would definitely go back the next time we visit.

At the mall (well one of them) to go to Legoland.

The boys loved Legoland. They got to ride a roller coaster type ride where they had to fight people with light sabers, play with legos and build a race car and race with other kids. To an adult it was packed but the boys didn't mind one bit.

Happy 4th Birthday Gage!

Can't believe my little stinker is now 4 years old. It truly seems like yesterday we were leaving the hospital with him and wondering how we were going to handle two kids. We wouldn't trade him for the world. He loves superheros, picking on everyone, snuggling, riding the go-kart, strawberry milk, spaghetti, and anything his brother or daddy are doing. He truly keeps us on our toes but keeps us laughing at the same time. Hope you have a wonderful birthday Batman!!!

We started off the Saturday before Gage's birthday with pancake breakfast at Sylacauga High School, walked around the car show and museum for a while before heading to Hunter's baseball tryouts.

After tryouts we headed to Birmingham to celebrate Gage. He requested to go to Treetop and eat Japanese food so we went to Stix.

He asked for legos for his birthday so we decided to let  him have his present on Sunday after church  that he would have plenty of time to play since his birthday is on a Monday.

 He was so excited!!

 Happy 4th Birthday Gage!!! (time please slow down)

 The night of his birthday we went to eat Mexican (his request) with the grandparents.

 He is such a stinker. I could eat him up!!!
