I love Spring. It's my favorite time of year. The warmer weather, flowers blooming, birthday time for our family, I love it all. I have so many things I want to write down for journaling purposes. Our girls are at such a fun wonderful age. I love them all so much.

The night before Easter we were all in Sams Club. The Easter Bunny was there to take pictures. Next to the bunny in the hot costume, there was a large fan blowing. Poor Lucy was getting blown away when we first put them by the bunny for the picture. Chuck turned it off for our picture so that you could see Lucy behind her crazy hair. Her hair in this picture is looking especially lovely due to the fan. It's gorgeous and chaotic all at the same time. I'm in awe of her hair every day. I'm not used to such volume and curls.
We had one of Leland's friends stay with us for a few days while her parents were on a little getaway. I took the big girls on an outing to Maymont. We went all over, starting with the Japanese Gardens. The tulips were amazing, the river otters were especially playful, and the girls were so much fun. We ended our fun day with Lucy tripping in the parking lot, falling off the curve and slamming her face against the hood/bumper of a car. Blood gushed from the inside of her lip where her teeth cut her. Nice.
We recently went to a birthday party. The kids had such a blast in the bounce house and on the tire swing. In the hammock is Leland and Kase. She has a little crush on him. She talks about them getting married. Back at Christmas he asked her to marry him, and she said yes. According to Chuck, he was taking "engagement" pictures here.
Chuck was having fun with the camera settings taking pictures of the kids on the tire swing. Check out Leland's face in the bottom right picture. We ended our fun evening with Lucy walking into the line of fire of the tire swing, catapulting her little body into the air, busting her treat bag open like a pinata. Luckily the only battle wound was a scrapped up arm. I was worried about her arm, because the entire way home she was screaming holding her arm. Poor Girl.

Charlotte and her talented tongue. Chuck went a little crazy with the close ups.

Wonderful things only a silly daddy will teach you.


  1. Classic Chuck- you know he taught that kind of stuff as a big brother too! Good to know he's still got it!:)

  2. Wow Leland! That IS a big pink booger! (; Love the photos at Maymont. How DID you get Dayne to smile and pose? She never does that for me!! And the segways? We think they are so much fun! I want to rent one for a whole day in D.C. They're awesome. Anyway, love reading your blog..
