Griffin has been really excited about Easter this year, he remembers the Easter egg hunts in the past and couldn't wait to have one again this year. Since we usually have them outside and the weather isn't quite springlike this year, he asked if it was OK if we had another Easter egg hunt when it's nicer outside. I don't see why not!! :)

Griffin wanted to go swimming so badly, so we made a deal. He would learn how to tie his shoes, then we'd go. And, he did it! I was so proud of him--he worked through the frustration and did it!! We got DQ for lunch and instead of going to the Y to swim this time, we went to the local hotel. They offer day passes, so I thought we'd check it out. It was perfect! We had the pool all to ourselves for 3 hours....nice! Griffin loved getting his snorkel gear out, Preston loved splashing around and watching Griffin and we enjoyed making up tons of games.
We had an awesome time celebrating Mary Kaye's birthday! She does such nice things for all of us that it was nice to have a party in her honor. The table turned out great thanks to Jean's fabulous decor and the china that my parents gave me when we got married (it was a gift they received when they got married, and was antique back then!).
Griffin helped with some pre-party preparations! :)

We had a great day celebrating Jamie's birthday! We started the day being lazy at home, had kick-butt workouts, then headed out to breakfast. Later Corey and Kristy came out and we headed to Zorbaz, then Cory, Jen and the kids came over for a big crab feast!!
Corey and Kristy got to enjoy the nice weather and went snowshoeing and snowmobiling on the lake.
Making creme brulee!
The crew before our big crab feast....SO MUCH FOOD!
Griffin and I were snuggled up on the couch talking about our days....I'm amazed at how grown up he seems and what a great conversationalist he is. Then, we drifted off to sleep....
