Spring has sprung....and so has the rain!!

I am always so excited for spring...the gorgeous flowers and the warmer weather and walks in the park. 

But wait, all we seem to have around here is a bunch of rain!!! I know the saying goes:  April showers bring May flowers, but enough already. I think cold rain is the worst weather.

Well despite all this rain we have had, we have also had a couple of sunny days. Luckily Easter was one of those days, which is the only way to have Easter. Annalise has loved all the Easter Egg hunts that we have had, mostly because of all the candy.
 She will eat and eat the candy until she can't see anymore. 

On Tuesday at our mom and tot group we had a little easter party. Everyone brought food and the kids got to make a little chick! 
Then we had and easter egg hunt...ate some candy (for an appetizer)
and then we had some lunch. 

Then on Saturday Kevins sister and Mom came into town for the weekend and we all attended the ward Easter Party that night.
 Annalise, of course, mostly liked eating the candy....oh, and stealing everyone else's easter baskets. 
It was a great party!
 Annalise loved having Auntie Amy here, she showed her a fun website which has a lot of cool alphabet activties, which annalise now begs me to turn on every minute of every day!!

And she got to go Shopping at Davids Bridal for a bridesmaid dress (for Amy): 

 Annalise was pretty worn out by the end of the day!
It was fun having Kev's family here, and Annalise always loves the attention she gets when other people are around. She is going to have a rough week with just mom around this week. She has been spending a lot of time with Oakley and Carter lately,..... so we will just have to have a lot of play dates this week or create a sibling....hmmm. 

Well, I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter Weekend, here are some of our pictures from Sunday!

I love the curls! That girl is just too darn cute. I agree with you, cold rain is the worst! We'll have to take the girls on some walks when the weather gets better! Those leggings are super cute too.

Hmmm...what exactly do you mean "creating a sibling..." Are you trying to tell us something! Annalise looked adorable on Easter Sunday. So glad Kevin's family was here to celebrate with you guys. Looks like you had a yummy dinner too.

Sound like a great holiday! I think you're right, it's time to create another sibling. Look at how grown up Annalise is!

I cannot believe how old Annalise looks. It is like another little Caitlin. I can't wait until the kids can play together this summer.

I Love the Easter pics! And even though I fully support the creating a sibling idea, I am also happy to do more play dates. :) I know Carter loved every minute!
