Happy Mother's Day

For Mother's Day, Darin brought me some flowers (one of those rare occasions). We celebrated the previous day with a trip to Leo Carillo State Beach. We were on the road with the rest of Southern California...

The beach was beautiful with large rocks, tide pools and caves, but it was VERY windy.
We weren't so smart, sitting right out in the open. Others congregated near the caves for a wind break.

Us girls painted our toes for the occasion. When we got home Ava asked me to paint her fingernails, which I did...

She later decided to paint Avery's fingernails and this is the result... Happy Mother's Day to me!

Easter Revisited

I don't get much time to do this blogging hobby of mine, so I get a bit behind from time to time. I am just now getting my Easter pics up. We are still deciding what traditions to give our children. At the last minute I decided to give in to hiding the baskets, but didn't give in to putting candy in the eggs for the hunt. Maybe when they are older, but right now candy has become an obsession of theirs (thanks to Halloween) and I don't want them to associate all holidays with candy:) We were in Vegas on Easter morning, where we hid the baskets and later did an egg hunt. We did another hunt when we got home, as they loved it sooo much!
