My mom had a big birthday this year!! The BIG 70!! Hard to believe!! We celebrated by spending the weekend at her friend's beach cabin with her close friends, sisters, cousin and niece. The weather didn't cooperate that weekend, we had freezing temperatures come through so we didn't get to spend much time on the actual beach. We did take the golf cart out for a few spins, but they were short because it was so cold and windy. But, we had a great time hanging out and enjoying tons of good food and drinks and so many laughs. Perfect time celebrating my wonderful momma.

Jace's spring sing was absolutely adorable. The kids did so well and were all so cute. I was so proud of him that he stood there and sang his heart out and performed all of the motions. Best part for him was getting to eat cookies and lemonade afterwards.

Easter morning the kids went through their baskets and found their eggs that were hidden outside before we went to church. Not going to lie the Easter Bunny had a hard time finding things for Dane this year. He is getting to be a hard age to buy for. He's too big for all the cheap easy summer things that the Easter Bunny likes to pick up. He got emoji golf balls, bathing suit and a fun pool raft along with a few snacks that he likes that I don't normally buy like Dr Pepper cans. His eggs had money and a couple coupons to have more electronic time, stay up late etc. Jace's basket was filled with mess free markers and paper, sidewalk chalk, puzzles etc and his eggs were filled with dinosaurs and things like that. Our church had egg hunts for all the age groups after the service. We enjoyed lunch at La Madeline and then spent the rest of the day just hanging out. Jace made us hide eggs about 245 times throughout the day for him to find. All in all it was a good Easter.
He is risen. He has risen indeed!

It stormed the morning of the egg hunt at Jace's school so unfortunately the staff had to move the hunt into their classroom. The kids still thought it was fun to gather up their 12 eggs even though it wasn't much of a hunt. Jace enjoyed looking through his loot once he got home.
We spent an afternoon at Good Shepherd Methodist Church for their annual Egg hunt and activities. Dane is really getting too big for the events, but he was a good sport and enjoyed himself too. There was a fire truck to play in, food trucks, snow cones, cheesy games to get candy and egg hunts etc. We ran into lots of friends which was an added bonus.
Dane's friend Chris brought over several dozens of the cascarones eggs, and they had a little battle. Chris was sweet enough to let Jace break some on his head.
Jman doesn't like to get his hands dirty, at all. So, When I found an egg kit with little rollers I had to get one. He would carefully hold the egg and only paint one side so he didn't have to touch the paint. He was so proud of his one sided paint job. He got a little dab of paint on a finger and it all came to a halt until we got his finger cleaned up. Dane painted a couple and then was over it. Egg dying just isn't for these peeps I guess.
