Cute Chicks!

April 28, 2011

Somehow Tracy ended up being the one tasked with procuring baby chicks for Drew's kindergarten class.

This is not as easy as it might sound, and it involved a last-minute trip to Loveland to make it happen.

First our girls got to hold the chicks, and then they were manhandled by a bunch of kindergarteners.

The chicks ended up at a nice farm where they lived happily ever after, or so we're told...

Early in Aurora

We had an Easter Egg Hunt in Aurora today with Cousins Natalie and Evan. What a GREAT time!

We have lots of video of the hunt, but failed to take any still pictures. Oops.

Early Easter

April 16, 2011

After soccer today we headed over to Grandpa and Ann's house in Lafayette for an Easter "Egg" hunt (golf balls) and a nice Easter dinner.

Cousins Hailey and Wyatt were there to play with too!

Lots of fun as always.

More Soccer

April 16, 2011

More soccer games today for both Drew's and the girl's teams.

Drew is really playing hard and the girls are having a lot of fun. It's fun to see them all progress in their soccer skills.

Michael Jackson Hats

April 12, 2011

Mommy has been getting our kids into Michael Jackson music and videos lately.

While at Kohl's today the kids all found hats they thought looked like Michael's.

We thought they looked great, and we couldn't help but buy one for Drew, using his very own money.
