Don't you remember how great cold water from the garden hose was when you were a kid?

Happy Easter

Easter dresses have always been a big deal to me. I grew up looking forward to shopping with my mom for the perfect dress. I loved the car ride, I loved going to lunch, and I loved the alone time with my mom...not to mention a new dress and shoes. Normally I search and shop for my girls and do my best in finding what I want for a price my husband can stand. So, this year I decided to really win some points with my husband and not spend a dime. I pulled out some fabric I had and made these dresses that don't coordinate, that don't excite the girls, made me neglect my house and kids for the better part of a day, and my husband didn't to the cartwheels I expected when he learned I didn't spend any money. Lesson learned. Next year I'm going shopping, taking the girls to lunch and dropping a hundred bucks.

In other news, we tried to take a family picture yesterday. Blerg. Mark is a gentle blur in most of the pictures, Laura really wants to take her dress off, I need to drop some pounds, and out of it all I think we ended up looking kind of normal.

Chuck E. Cheese

Last Saturday we took the kids to Chuck E. Cheese's place to mend Alice's broken heart. Her second soccer game in a row was rained out. As you can see, everyone had a good time.

In this picture Mark looks just like my brother Doug as a toddler.

Mother, Daughter Date

Last weekend I bribed my girls into going downtown with me to see this years cherry blossoms. They'll do anything as long as chicken nuggets are involved.

What The...?

My girls never did this.
