I really, truly am trying to make time to write weekly, but life keeps getting in the way...that's a good thing, right?! We are too busy having fun and/or recovering from tantrums to have much time to do anything else, let alone write.
The last time I wrote we were about to celebrate Easter, which we did with Mom and Nic.  Ryder ended up getting sick again (remember his fever at Christmas?) This time he didnt' have a fever but he wanted to sleep all day Easter Sunday. He kept asking to go "have a nap."
He did perk up enough to find some eggs, but he hardly ate any of the chocolate and has not asked for once piece since then (don't worry, I've eaten all of it by didn't go to waste...)

Saturday, before he got sick, we colored Easter eggs!  Grammy always has the coolest egg decorating kits!
 Payton got into the spirit of hunting for eggs...kind of...mostly she was happy to just shake the plastic eggs and listen to them rattle! Adorable!!
 Ryder's stash! Every egg is full of chocolate..all of which I have eaten....LOL
 Marty had to work Easter Monday, but it was the start of my Spring Break and the sun was shining, so we invited Ryder's buddy Asher, out to the Farm to hang with Uncle Dirt and play trucks in the arena.  Payton is in there like a dirty shirt!!

 We have also been able to play in our awesome back yard a lot now that the snow has melted and the dog poo is cleaned up (Thank you Marty!!)  It's soo cute to see Payton playing with all the toys Ryder loved at her age like this blue wagon.  She prefers to put water in it and splash around where as Ryder wanted to push it everywhere, but they both love it!
The sandbox is always a hit. Payton has a plastic spoon out there that she literally scoops up sand with and feeds herself. I have given up trying to convince her not to do this. Now I just sit and watch as she shovels spoonfuls of CLEAN (is there such a thing?) sand into her mouth!
It's also fun to spend time out front watching for the other kids to come out and play!
Ryder has created quite a little mud hole in the front too, which has provided lots of good, messy fun!

Payton is only going to be content to watch Ryder bike for so much longer. 

 For now, Payton rides (in the stroller or back pack) while Ryder rides his bike.
And of corse, Scout gets to come on all bike rides!!

When it wasn't warm enough to enjoy outdoor adventures, we made alternative plans like hanging out at the Science Center...always an adventure!

My last day of break, we attended a Birthday party. Ryder insisted on wearing his "Batman" cape and mask to the party. I love that his imagination believes this is a Batman get up even though it's red.  Kids are awesome!
 After the birthday party, we hooked up with Asher's Family and headed to a campground out int he mountains. The campgrounds arn't open yet, so it's safe to bike all over the paved roads around the campsites!
Break time!
 Potty time!
 Bumpers up!!!
 Payton riding her "bike" aka: Daddy!
 This girl ADORES her Daddy!!

Monday was Ryder's first Soccer game. I signed up to coach, though I've never played real soccer before. I love kids and and figured I could offer my kid experience to the other coach, who thankfully is alot more skilled!
 Ryder is stinkin' adorable in his soccer gear!
Now that I am finally publishing this blog it is no longer "Almost May" it is May, so I'm going to sign off and try to write another post before June!!!
Kiss your babies, count your blessings and stop all soccer games to watch helicopters whenever they pass overhead.
