First Up: Easter
We celebrated Easter in grand style with new dresses, lots of chocolate, thoughts on Christ and a visit from the Eater bunny.
Spencer has been asserting too much independence and the result is not pretty with lots of time outs.
And also concludes with most of his Easter Sunday photos with his hands in his pants.
Spencer (the best picture to work with….that kid….)

Next Up: Disneyland
We’d been budgeting and saving to go on this trip.
We wanted to surprise the kids so we told them the night before we left.
I got the video camera posed.
And they didn’t believe us.
Not even shouts of ‘You’re awesome!’
In conclusion, the reveal was pretty anti-climatic.
I, also, thought we’d make our own shirts.
The idea was to dye the shirts blue and the silhouette would remain white.
It didn’t work.
So now we just have “white shirts that I bought the week before we went Disneyland” to commemorate the event.
Bryce’s parents went with us.
We drove down Tuesday.
We stayed at a house that was more ‘ghetto’ than ‘vintage’ but did have an orange tree.
We did three days at Disneyland.
I ran into a friend from high school.
Which doesn’t seem impressive until you think about how big and busy Disneyland is, that she lives in Idaho and I live in Oregon, how many days and weeks are in the year and that our high school only had like 220 students.
We did not see any of the characters from Frozen, as the wait time was anywhere from two to five hours.
We drove back Saturday.
Bennett worked on cutting three teeth while we were there.
The Sunday after we got back I took an 1 1/2 nap.
Regardless of how exhausting the trip was, it was really, really fun.
And a series of pictures of our family with people in costume.
(Could my front backpack strap be in a worse location?)
Spencer is not in this picture.
He was not happy that Goofy ‘kissed’ his autograph book.
Hope your week has started out amazing, mine has: after I’ve cleaned the house done, six loads of laundry, put together some birthday presents, made homemade donuts and put Spencer in his room,
