2014 Kiddie Parade!

Apple Blossom is here!!
Rolli, Vivian, Mommy and Colter.
Waiting for the Kiddie Parade (officially called The Keyes Fibre Youth Parade) to start.

It was a perfectly sunny day to celebrate Col-T's half birthday at the parade.



Me and our observant 0.5er.

Parade high fives!

"It's L-Bow the Clown!!!"

The Princess float.

Rolli giving Mommy's old work ride the thumbs up :)

Marshall giving his old marching band the thumbs up :)

This is how Vivian feels about the marching bands.

"Yay!" for St. Paul's!
Rolli and Vivian saw at least 3 kids from school!
We told the kids we'd leave after their school float went by.
It was 2nd to last...

 Apple Blossom is never complete without a stop at the Food Fair.
Apple fries with carmel and whipped cream.

The best Food Fair food we've ever had!

Walking home with my boys :)

Vivian's favorite spot!

Now on to the rest of our afternoon.

Easter Eggs!

Rolli and Vivian helped me dye Easter Eggs using the traditional method.
Ready to Dye!

We started with the primary colors.

Viv doing her best to be patient while the eggs are soaking in the dye.

Very pleased with the colors!

All dyed and waiting for the Easter Bunny to hide them!


Date night with Daddy!
Daddy and his Ladies!
Marshall was the perfect gentleman on our date.

Me and Miss Queen Mae on our date.
Lil' Viv was so excited all week for our special night with Daddy!
She picked my clothes out and talked about what she'd wear too.

We had a nice, normal date with a very handsome man...
And after we got home Viv announced that it wasn't "fancy" enough.
Oh' dear.
I think she's already been deeply influenced by Disney.
Me and Marshall are going to have a challenge ahead of us.

Hugs loves Vivian

Hugs has been with Vivian since day one.
Baby Viv using Hugs as a pillow. 

Hugs and Viv.
Visibly worn and loved.
These 2 are still the best of pals at 4 years old!

Who's kid is this?!

I used to think that Rollin Von was a mini blond version of Marshall.
Handsome baby Rolli with his big eyes and blond/bald head.

Then I met Colter Lee.
Our happy baby Col-T!
The new mini Marshall.

The ever cute and kissable Marshall R.

I just love my boys!!
...and I'm sitting here cracking up as I look at their 3 baby pictures side-by-side :)

Tooth Fairy!

The Tooth Fairy, Vivian and Rollin

A few weeks ago Rolli and Viv got to meet the Tooth Fairy and have their picture taken with her.
Too Cute!
And Viv even remembers to floss her teeth most nights per the Tooth Fairy's instructions :)

Not too windy for ice cream.

My little flock and I where lucky enough to join 
Katie's pre-wedding day 
hike up Saddle Rock last Friday.
It was a beautiful day with BEAutiful ladies!
With my heavy load and Rolli's tired legs we lagged behind a bit 
but made it all the way to the top!
As soon as we reached the high point we were greeted with more wind than we could handle!
Too windy for our picnic.
Exhausted Rolli had to turn away from the wind.
Great job little hiking' man!

One quick photo with me and my motivation before being blown off the mountain.

Rolli, Vivian and Colter (me too of course)
did such a great job hiking that I declared we needed an ice cream treat!

Strong man Rolli Von with his well deserved ice cream.

Miss Mae with ice cream as sweet as her.

Me and Col-T.
If hiking with this lil' bird isn't challenging enough,
then he sure makes eating ice cream in peace even more difficult ;)

Love sharing a special treat with my hiking buddies!

We are art.

During our coloring session today Rolli said, "Mom , I'm going to draw a picture of you. Here's your long hair..."
Okay, cool. 
So, for the first time every Rolli drew a picture of me. 
Rolli with his interpretation of my face :)

Then he drew a picture of Daddy too.
Love these two!
