Happy Easter

We had a fun Easter weekend spending time with family and friends. We went to church this morning and then went to eat lunch with Drew's mom, grandparents and aunt and uncle. It has been a beautiful weekend.

Avi enjoyed running around Nana's yard and picking flowers.

Yesterday (Saturday), we went to an Easter egg hunt in Blackhawk, MS, with Drew's grandmother's extended family. There were a ton of people there, and Avi had a great time. She was exhausted by the end of the day and slept all the way home.

Ahhh, the joys of being 2 and eating a cupcake. Usually Avi just eats the icing off the cupcake, but this time she actually ate most of the cupcake!

We started off the day with a fun trip to Jack Fountain's birthday party at Jumping G's. Avi was shy and not sure she wanted to participate at first, but then she got into it and started sliding down this inflatable. She had a blast, and she didn't want to leave when it was time to go to the egg hunt! Happy birthday, Jack!

Spring Break?

Well, we spent most of our spring break like this...on the couch watching Mickey Mouse. You may think that sounds like a great spring break, but unfortunately the Mickey Mouse watching also came with a pretty sick 2 and a half year old. My mom, Avi and I headed to Georgia to visit my sister on the first Friday of spring break, and when we got to Birmingham, Avi started running fever and she had a pretty bad cough. We ended up turning around and heading back to Starkville. She ran fever for 4 days straight and felt pretty yucky. We were glad to have our sweet little Avi back by the end of the week. So, spring break turned out a little differently than we had planned, but I guess that's just the nature of taking care of children!
