Here comes Peter Cottontail

Decorating Easter eggs

We decided to check out a local "marshmallow drop" at a nearby airport. The idea was that the helicopter would fly over the airport and drop 10,000 large marshmallows. Then the kids would go out and collect them to exchange for an Easter goodie bag. When we got to the airport we stood along the side and waited. The helicopter flew over and as soon as they opened the door to drop the marshmallows, people started running out to collect the marshmallows. It was then that we realized how many people were really there. Very quickly we were all split up in the crowd. The kids were able to find a few marshmallows but when we saw how many people were in line for the goody bags we decided to leave. The kids enjoyed the experience!

Crazy Hair Day

Spring Break 2011

Last week we went over to Detroit to spend a couple days "away" for Spring Break. The first day we were there Matt was in bed very sick. So the kids and I spent some time at the pool and went shopping. We also got to have dinner with Papa Ron who is working in the area right now.

The next day we visited Papa Ron's work site, went to The Henry Ford Museum and ended the night at a Pistons game.

Carter's Realization

So Mom and Dad Hughes were here visiting for the weekend and Riley wanted to show Grandma where her school was. So we drove past it and Riley said "That's it. Roosevelt Elementary." Carter immediately replied, "Riley, my school has the same last name!!" It was so cute because he was so serious and proud of himself that he made the realization.
