Week 17 (April 24-April 30)

The girls dyed Easter eggs on Saturday.  Caroline was really excited about Easter this year.  It ranked right up there with Christmas in her mind.

It was cold and raining on Easter morning. I heard them awake around 6 am.  By 6:45, Kayla had given Caroline a bath and they were both dressed.  The girls did a little inside Easter egg hunt before we went to Church.

 After Church we go to my dad's house for Easter lunch and an egg hunt with all of the cousins.  The kids always have such a great time together.  The egg hunt had to take place inside at their house also.  It was still cold and rainy.  I think Sue had around 250 eggs for the kids to hunt.  There are just not enough places in their house to hide that many eggs.  I was tripping over them just walking through the room.  They all got a ton of candy and little toys.  It was a great day.

This picture just makes me smile

Andy's parents came back up on Friday.  Kayla already had a dance thing scheduled so they got to go and watch.  I was excited for them to see her dance, but I wish they got to see her do her solo.  They did get to see her do two group dances (tap and hip hop).  They have not seen her dance since her very first recital when she was in pre-k.  We all went to Cherry Berry after the performance.  Yummy!
 And Caroline always insists on a silly face picture
We put them to work on house stuff for the remainder of the weekend.  We got a lot of work done while they were here.  I am so glad they were willing to make the 6 hour drive again to finish up some projects.
