This was our first Easter egg hunt with the prcoc. We went to squirrel Lake Park to hunt eggs and play. I was with Houston and Nathan was with Adron, more pictures of Houston then of Adron.
Houston had fun finding the eggs this time, opening them up and dropping the candy onto the ground. Didn't understand that he needed to put the eggs in the basket and he could keep going. By the end he was doing much better and wanted to pick other peoples eggs too.
Adron was done in 2 seconds because the limit was 20; I think Nathan and Adron had a hard time counting.
Houston makes the sweetest faces when he wants to; I had fun trying to catch him in the act.
We have had lots of Easter events between school, church and a road trip.
Adron had an Easter egg hunt on the "big" playground, Nathan came to join us because I needed to be with my class on the "small" playground and Houston is in my class so it worked out this way I could be with him. More picture of Houston that day because I had the camera but Nathan had his fancy phone. I had my kids practice in the classroom picking up eggs and putting them into your bag. They didn't really get it, or my expiations were a little too high. They didn't care about the eggs, they didn't have any candy in them any, all they cared about is they got to out to the playground again and ride bikes. Everyone got a little treat bag to take home that way it would be far to everyone. Love this idea, not so much candies this way and they put fun things in there like books and bubbles.
Adron had his candy ate by the time he got to me, I'm sure he had a little help from his daddy.
At the start of April we had a few nice days of sunshine. We breeze was somewhat cold, but it was nice just to see the sun so we could go outside. Last year in Charlotte it didn't rain so much and we had a drought forever. This year we have been making up for it and it rains about every 4 days or so. On this Saturday we got out of the house early to begin our adventures of the day.
Adron want to be a super hero these days and will get into costume anytime you will let him. Thanks to some friends he know has, Spiderman, superman, robin, caps (my mom made) and light savers... ect... He will wear these fancy outfits to the store, park, to ride his bike and mow the lawn. We are thankful that he is using his imagination and not wanting to watch a "show" all the time. He is also into guns, wipes, racecar drivers, we went to some yard sales together and have found some great toys and superheroes for a few dollars, and he’s a good shopper.
Houston is into drinking out of juice boxes, he makes the cutest faces when he drinks out of a straw. Anytime you open to door he wants to be outside with you. He talks really really fast these days to keep up with Adron and his superhero talk, which we can't really make out what he is saying. His favorite words are yep, no, cookie (he's really talking about a cracker) He loves chocolate, and yes to those of you who know me well your thinking I don't give it to him. He eats so well that he makes the cutest faces when you give him M&M's. He loves to eat bean, apple (and says it really clear) grape (when we are in Sams he goes nuts when he see's them) green beans (he calls them beans) still working on meat he will eat a McDee's cheeseburger any day, yuck! You can catch him hanging out behind Adron doing whatever Adron is doing. Houston is 19 months going on 4 he thinks.
