Preschool Open House

Emma had another great year at preschool. She had a lot of friends and we absolutely LOVED her teachers. Back at the end of April, we visited Emma's class to view her work from the past year.

Of course we had to have the treats!

Easter 2012

The Easter bunny found our house and left some treats! The kids woke up to this:
You may notice a theme: Disney! We had been keeping our upcoming Disney trip a surprise, but we kept slipping and mentioning it in front of the kids. Luckily they never noticed, but we decided to tell them anyway. I carefully curated what I put in their Easter baskets, and they still didn't notice! Not quite the effect I was going for...
 Yeah, they didn't get it. But they still loved digging through their baskets.

 Later we tried to get pictures in their Easter finery. This was the best we got.
 Most of the pictures looked something like this...
 Then we tried outdoors, but Andrew tried to crawl away.

 Success! Mostly. Except for Maddie's creepy smile. Hey girls, give Andrew a hug, let's see how he likes that...

From April: The Heard

Back in the Spring, we didn't see Dave a whole lot. In fact, there was one stretch where he worked 6 Saturdays in a row. So when he actually had a Saturday off before Easter, we jumped at the chance to do something fun and headed the Heard Natural Science Museum and Wildlife Preserve.
Of course we had to check out the Mickey Mouse geode, in anticipation of our trip in May.

Andrew had fun!

Checking out bugs.

I was there too, and I even made it into a picture!

Maddie can't do anything without a snack.

Ta da! We finished the 1/2 mile trail!

Andrew Explores

At the beginning of April, Andrew's crawling really kicked into high gear and he started exploring further afield than the previous confines of the family room. His favorite quickly became the kitchen, where he could make out with a towel.
