I know I am a month behind, but it would be sad if I didn't mention the two birthday parties Addy attended this past month. First, her BFF, Micah, turned 2. Addy & Micah were the only toddlers and I think everyone enjoyed watching their interactions. I know they make me smile.
Such hams...and color coordinated too.
Brody also had a birthday party. Renee & Cyndy did an awesome job creating a pirate themed birthday, complete with themed food, games (like walking the plank), and pirate hats for the kids to wear. It was one of the cutest little boy parties ever.
For Tim's 30th and Dennis' 60th birthdays, we decided to take a family trip to Disneyland. There were eleven of us total and I think a good time was had by all. We were able to go for two days and spend the night in a very nice hotel (thank you Alison!!!). And Addy got to meet one of her favorite characters, Mickey Mouse. We also caught the great new show, World of Color, in California Adventure. While I am not sure they do justice to the trip, I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking.

Addy is a dancing queen. She loves music and coming up with her own dance moves. Her favorite Pandora station? Disney Soundtracks Perfect for "Princess Addy" as she calls herself when wearing her Cinderella dress-up outfit. (Thank you Lisa!!) I love every minute of Addy's dancing and thought I would share a video with you. Please ignore my giggles and the camera shake. :-)
Have I ever mentioned how lucky Addy is to have such great friends??? She is beyond lucky that I just happened to be working with Heather & Lauren, who just happened to be pregnant at the same time as me, and who just happened to be cool. :-) I love that Micah, Charli, and Addy get along and are all fun to be around. They are just so fun together.
A couple of weeks ago we decided to take advantage of Legoland's Teacher Appreciation Day and take the girls for a free day at Legoland.
When I asked Tim what he wanted to do for his 30th birthday, with no hesitation, he told me he wanted to go to Palm Springs. A few conversations later and we decided to invite some of Tim's friends from work and make it a laid back family trip. Tim choose a great hotel for families, Palm Mountain Resort, which had a huge lawn for kicking a soccer ball around and Adirondack chairs to lounge in. We were also lucky to have beautiful weather (it started raining the day we left). Overall, another successful trip out to the desert.
Marley found the most eggs

Braylen is cute too!!
And Brawley is going to be a lady killer with those eyes
More than a month late, but better late than never, right?
The day after Alison's wedding we all gathered at the newlywed's house for breakfast. It was intimate compared to the night before and we were able to rehash everything from the day before, hide some eggs for the kids, and decorate the getaway car. It was a good couple of hours of family, food, and some beverages.
Looking for those eggs

Tim's parents & sister were here for the festivities so we all drove to see the Temecula Manberts. Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures. :-( But we did have another egg hunt (thanks Rob) and hung out for a bit.
Overall a successful Easter!
Addy was definitely worn out by the day's activities
