A boy and his Papa

Finlay loves his Papa.  He'll just sit on his lap and watch tv, snuggle with him and love on him.

Awful, yet perfect

This photo so captures the type of day we were having...one kids happy, one kid fussy.  Isla is really into different poses these days!

Isla's first solo adventure

Isla went to Holly for 4 days to spend with Papa and Grandma Boody.  She did so well, and we were so proud.  She tamed the barn tom cat and loved being around all the animals and family.  We'll be sending her down to Holly again soon!

Easter Sunday

It was a brisk Easter morning and the hunt was delayed by Isla stopping and opening every egg to have a candy taste.  The afternoon was warm and sunny, and we sat on the patio for hours enjoying margaritas with Kalyn. 

Easter/Engagement/Housewarming Dinner

We headed to Harrison and Leah's the night before Easter for dinner to celebrate their new house, early Easter and Jana and Erick's engagement.  Fabulous food, great company and happy kids!

Brunch with the Wu's

The day before Easter we hosted Harrison and Leah, as well as Leah's parents Jim and Bette, for brunch at our home.  It was a beautiful day, and we got to spend the morning outside enjoying our blood orange mimosas!

Easter cookies and egg decorating

The kids love to bake with me and be my kitchen helpers.  We had a fun time baking and decorating egg and bunny cookies.  Isla did the eggs solo and loved making them all sparkly and bedazzled. 

Birthday night out for Daddy

We headed to Wine Experience as a family to celebrate Zums' 33rd birthday.  We capped off the night with some homemade carrot cake at home.  Another year old, another year blessed.

Birthday for Isla's besties

Isla's best buddies Rowan and Bronwyn turned 3 on March 22, and it was a snowy, cold day but Cinderella made it to their princess party.  The girls were mesmerized by her.  Like always, Isla ate the frosting only on a couple of cupcakes!
