Garage Sale!

We have had a couple of busy weeks around here so even though I haven't taken too many pictures lately, trust me, we are still here!  One thing we have been getting ready for is the garage sale in Conrad that we wanted to take part in.  Saturday was a chilly day, but the rain stayed away and we were able to sell a decent amount of our stuff.  After the sale, Papa took Conner and Ben for a ride...

We also managed to get a little birthday celebration in on Saturday evening for Jennifer, Mikayla, and Kelly!

It was a great weekend and it feels pretty good to have that sale behind us now!  Thanks to Mama and Papa for all your hard work!

Monster Jam!

We had a surprise for Conner and Ben today... the four of us got to go to Monster Jam!  The boys couldn't wait to see all those monster trucks in action!

When we got to the Cellular Center, the boys both saw all the tshirts and decided they had to have one so they both got to pick one out!  They slipped them on and we got ready to head in to see what this Monster Jam was all about!

It was a pretty awesome show and the guys loved it!  I am very glad that we decided to go!  The looks on Ben's, Conner's, and Nick's faces the whole time were definitely worth it!

Roasting marshmallows was a great way to spend our Saturday evening!

Ben and Conner both wanted seconds.  Ben told us that his belly was begging for more!  The boys both did a great job roasting their own marshmallows and, of course, fit in some run around the yard time!

Happy Easter!

The Easter Bunny came to Nana and Gramps' house!  Ben and Conner were pretty happy!  After going through some Easter baskets, the kids all played outside.  Nana made us a wonderful meal and the kids got to hunt for Easter eggs inside and outside!  It was an awesome day!

When we got home tonight, the boys discovered that the Easter bunny had also left something for them at our house, too!  So, of course, we had to play with some of new stuff!  It was a very happy Easter!

Easter Eve...

On Saturday, we went to Bettendorf.  We all enjoyed the nice weather and the kids colored Easter eggs after dinner.  We also celebrated Aunt Jenn's birthday tonight.  The boys are looking forward to the Easter Bunny visiting tonight!

Spring Pictures...

The boys brought home Spring pictures from school.  I didn't order any, but I thought the pictures turned out pretty cute, especially with their glasses!  Ben has the blue shirt and Conner has the red.

Bunny Hats...

Ben and Conner are Bunnies today...
