Getting Festive...Easter 2017

 We had a wonderful Easter filled with fun family time, sweet treats, and beautiful weather.  We started our day off with the kids opening their baskets, which in the picture below look a bit beat up but that was because it was the best I could get after they tore into them. 

After baskets we got ready, went to visit my Grandma and then headed to brunch.  The kids got to meet the bunny and no one was more excited then Sawyer, who after last year and not wanting to be in the same room as the bunny had come a long way!  Kinley on the other hand wanted nothing to do with him.

After brunch we headed over to our friend's house for a big egg hunt for the kids.  She also had the cutest mimosa bar and cupcakes.

"And their off!"
The kids wanted nothing to do with a family picture so this guy and I got one, just the two of us instead

Sawyer and I- he had the cutest outfit on and actually loved wearing it!  The bowtie and suspenders stayed on all day!

Hope you had a wonderful Easter with family and friends!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Getting Festive...Annual Easter Photoshoot

My girlfriend Vicky and I have taken pictures of our kids together every year around Easter since they were born and it is always a crazy, bribery filled exercise.  The themed photoshoot typically captures each of their little personalities perfectly and have been awesome to look back at each year. 

This year we were completely outnumber with four kids to two adults but were still able to get a couple of good pictures from the 100+ we took!

I'll be back tomorrow sharing pictures of our Easter!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

How I Spent...Spring Break 2017- Part 2

After our quick weekend in Telluride we drove back through town, dropped some things off, packed up a couple more things and then headed to Glenwood Springs to meet up with my girlfriend Clare and her family for a quick overnight to cap off our travels during Spring Break.e We stayed at Hotel Glenwood Springs and to say the place was kid friendly would be the understatement of the century.  The hotel features an indoor water park and while it is pretty small (only one large waterslide) the kids didn't mind at all and stayed for hours!

See... the water park really wore them out!
We enjoyed a yummy dinner at The Pullman and both had a delicious cocktail featuring ginger vodka, ginger beer, and champagne.

The next day we headed back to the waterpark before checking out.  After checking out our husbands dropped us and kids off before heading to play a round of golf.  We took the kids to a local park, then lunch at a great BBQ restaurant called Smoke, followed by candy and ice cream near by.  Once our bellies were all full, we headed to the train station and jumped on our train home.
About to board
They were happier than they appear.  I promise!

The lack of naps had gotten to Kinley

After arriving back in town we headed out to dinner before going home- didn't want vacation to end!
Lachlan was so worn out he fell asleep in his taco!
