Weekend Update

Sleeping babies. The biys like to fall asleep in our bed then we transfer them. Julia goes to sleep by herself. 

Relief Society visiting teaching motivational message before Steven played basketball.

My first time playing in the pool.
I had the girls make ice creal, a fruit salad, and messes.
Steven worked from home on Friday and bought me lunch. I like the saying.

Because the day before, I met a new friend who made the wait worth it at Tropical Smoothie Café. 
The smoothies were overloaded w supplements and were gross so I took the kids to a different one after school on Friday.
I got to go for a jog and smelled honeysuckles. So I stopped.
My parents took me to a play to see one of my young women perform. Briana was so good!

I stayed up until after 5am to finish a photo session.
The next day, Saturday, Steven took the boys to Soccer practice while I took the other half to Brynlee Vorwaller's 1st birthday party at the beach.

We jumped in the pool before going to Anthony, formerly known as Kyriakos's 1st birthday party.

He didn't taste his cake. He was confused and cute.

The Sound of Music made me want to have one of my own favorite things, "girls in a white dresses  with blue satin sashes."
Ti was a busy day at church. President Emery was released as the stake president and Bishop Bangeter was called to replace him. We parked in a ditch of the nursing home.
Now to make Dylan's litter bug school project...

Julia's Many Easter Dresses

Barbie took Easter photos of Julia and Clara with so many details including the perfect green grass and background, bunny ears, baskets, colorful eggs, hair bows, and she let Julia use one of Clara's dresses too! But that's not all...

Julia started standing by herself! And I don't mean standing by letting go of a table to stand for a second or 15 like she had the night before once, she can get herself from sitting to standing! Oh my goodness! 
Barbie sent me a text with a baby in a pink dress and bunny ears standing and I assumed it was Clara. I was at work so didn't have a chance to really look at my phone. Then I saw it was Julia! Wow! Then, after work, when I looked again, I saw it was a video! What a happy surprise. 
Still standing. Loving her Aunt Barbie. 
On Saturday, Daddy, Darren, Andre, and their friend Danielle won a volleyball tournament! We stopped at Martin's Farm right by there for some photos with baby chicks. Julia wasn't afraid at all. 

 They held a duckling too.

 The night before, it was already getting late/dark, but I wanted some photos in my mom's pretty back yard of Julia for Easter. So I had this dress.

 On Friday, I decided we should have our own Easter Egg hunt w/ church and other friends. It was a hit! AND Martin and Katy drove from Charlotte, NC to come too! They surprised our parents by walking in the front door at 6:30am that morning. (We had so much fun with them, running, egg hunting, playing at the beach, and hanging out with them at Mom's.)
But her real Easter dress is this one from my friend from work, Jessica. She gave it to me for Julia's baby shower. She doesn't work there any more, but I knew this was going to be Julia's Easter dress when I first saw it. It's perfect! In fact, this morning, I saw another like 7 year old wearing the exact dress for Easter! Her mom said it was a hammy down too. We went to the Botanical Gardens to take photos after the 2nd session of conference on Saturday evening. We got to stay after close b/c there was a wedding going on there.

And today, the actual Easter, I was out of ideas and we were just hanging at the park and inside watching Conference, and having dinner at my mom's, so she wore this.
