Easter Outfits

Here is our Easter family photo shoot. We did the matching family outfits again.

Can you tell Colton was not in a great mood.

He is still a cutie, even with an attitude:) His eyes look so tired. It was after church so he really was.

Dustin's Guy Weekend

Dustin went on a fishing trip last weekend and came home with these. Two beautiful Salmon! The largest was 18 lbs and the other 14lbs. Dustin fillet them and they are now in our freezer ready for dinners. Who wants to come over to Salmon!?


Easter Eggs

Dustin was gone the weekend before Easter so the boys and I got to dye eggs together. Last year they got bored quickly with the coloring process so we tried something new tie dieing eggs. It was so simple quick and turned out so cool. All you do is put the eggs in a colander and poor vinegar over them and drop food coloring drops on them color by color. The kids loved it and there was no mess!
Colton taking his turn.

Camdin chose blue (his favorite).

Here is our finished product.

Playgroup Easter Egg Hunt

The week before Easter we had our annual Playgroup Easter egg hunt. This year the weather was nice so we were able to have it outside in a friends back yard. The kids had a blast and loved all of the candy.

Camdin had to check out every egg:)

Easter Cookies

We headed over to our friends house on the week before Easter to make Easter cookies. Sugar cookies are not my favorite to make because of all of the steps. But when you have four little helpers and two adults it goes pretty fast. They ended up being the best sugar cookies ever!
All four of the boys had fun picking out shapes and pressing them into the dough. And we all enjoyed eating them!
We got a little fancy with the frosting. Cute egg huh?

Fishing Field Trip

Camdin's latest field trip for preschool was to Bob's Fishin Hole. It was suggested that this would be a good one for dad to go on. Unfortunately Dustin was unable to go, so me and my boys went fishin:) It was more fun then I expected. Bob did everything with the kids so I was able to stand back watch and take pictures. Here was everyone in front of the baby fish tank. It was actually a cool set up with fish eggs and little water slides for the fish to go on to get to bigger ponds.
All of the kids got to feed the fish. The fish loved that.
The kids got to take turns being the fisher and the net person.
Camdin had fun doing both.

Bob gutted the fish and bagged them up. The boys can't wait to eat them:)

Tulip Festival

On our way home from camping we stopped at the Tulip Festival. Since it has been a cold spring this year the tulips were not in full bloom but the daffodils were amazing! I love spring!
There were not may tulips but they sure were pretty.

It was a great afternoon after a great weekend.

Kick Off To Camping Season

Last weekend was one of the nicest weekends (weather wise) so far this spring so we took advantage of it and went camping. We tried a new spot up in Mount Vernon and went four wheeling and played for two nights. It was so nice to be out doors and away from the TV and everything electronic.

The views from on top of the hill were beautiful.

The four wheeling trails were fun!

There was plenty of mud to play in!

You can't go camping without having marshmallows and hot dogs:)

With all of the rain we have been having this year there were some really fun huge puddles. It was fun!

Playing With My Boys

Dustin was working some long hours so the boys and I had fun taking some adventures alone. In early April we took advantage of a dry afternoon and went to the beach. We had fun playing and enjoying the outdoors.
