Easter, Orchids, and Butterflies

This is the best picture I could get of the two. Justin was anti-pink for this Easter when it came to the dresses. So we went in a different direction.

We also went to see a little orchid exhibit downtown. Who doesn't like being surrounded by gorgeous flowers?

While we were downtown we also went to the butterfly pavilion. They flutter about you minding their business, just be careful where you step....seriously.

My mom came to town for a visit...first to watch the little ones while Justin and I went to Boston. But then she stayed for almost a week to be with us all. I just have to say that I know there are a lot of great moms out there, but I have THE VERY BEST one. She loves me no matter how annoying I am and she loves my kids like I do. Thanks to my mother who worked so hard to do the right thing for me and my five brothers.

With baby number three on the way, we've been looking for a better car for the family. A Honda Civic can only work for so here's my new ride. I can now blend into the sea of minivans and feel confident that I can tote all our crap around the country with ease. I feel validated as a mother and am no longer "making due" when it come to getting around with the kids. Well, I'm sure I can come up with some errands to run. I'm outta here!

Justin and I went to Boston last weekend for a little kid free get away. We had a great time and hope to take that trip again someday. Thanks to my sweet mother who managed to take care of the little people while we were gone. She didn't just keep them alive, she took them to the movies and Chuck E. Cheese. They didn't even miss us.
