March Madness Party - SCHOOL BUS TIME

Now this is something I didn't see coming...we had a March Madness basketball watch party at our house and some college kids came to watch basketball and hang out.  Sarah had to work so Jason pulled up to our house..driving...THEIR SCHOOL BUS!  I know that's a crazy thing to type...Sarah's parents/family bought a little bus just to have for trips to see Christmas lights, take family outings, etc.  When he pulled up to our driveway in the BUS my girls thought it was just about the COOLEST thing EVER!

Even some of the college kids got to take a ride around the neighborhood in this was hilarious!  Picture our kids singing "The Wheels on the Bus" at the top of their lungs, bouncing around like crazy...GOOD MEMORIES!

The weather was awesome and we had fun all playing outside...the boys had a 7 ft. dunk contest...HA!

So thankful for GORGEOUS weather and a big ole' yard to play in!

Soccer and SEMO Track

Spring soccer was so fun!  It was so cool that the girls were all on the same team for both fall and spring because we really got to know the girls and their families and it was so fun cheering together!



Go Brynn!  We got this big circle sticker for her room and she loves it! She has really been bitten by the soccer bug and she's pretty darn good!

After soccer one Saturday, Ryan headed home to mow and work on the yard, and my dad and I took the girls to the SEMO track meet.  I used to go watch this with my dad every year when I was little and it's still fun to go today...and even better that I am taking MY girls!

It was so cute to watch the girls "doing warm-ups" and cheering for the Redhawks!

Coffee Table and Brynn's Wood-Working

We have had so much fun working on a coffee table!  Dad was AWESOME at building what I wanted, and then we all had fun distressing it and staining it!

Trying out different stain colors!

It looks SO GOOD in the family room!  THANKS DAD!

While Dad was working on building it, Brynn was getting a lesson in wood-working.  She kept adding boards and carpet and told us she was building something for her dogs.

And when we got home this is what she made!

Thanks Dad!  You are AWESOME!

Paddle-Boat and Paint Party!

We have had so much fun taking family rides on the paddle boat!

As a spring Bible study kick-off we had an awesome paint party with the college girls!  But man...painting this was WAY harder than I thought it would be!

Lots of fun!

Easter Sunday

What an awesome and beautiful Easter Sunday!  The girls were up and matching and we were ON TIME for church and even had time for a picture!  Church was WONDERFUL and I'm so thankful we are able to go and celebrate what Easter is all about.  Thank you God!

We headed to my grandparents in Oran for Easter lunch...which was amazing as usual!

Emory took a big nap and we all relaxed and visited and then after naps we headed outside to hunt Easter eggs!

 Granny put a little moolah in their eggs!

Easter at Pamaw's

On the Saturday evening before Easter we headed to Pamaw and Papaw's for Easter with the Hawn side.  Gigi was so sweet with Easter goodies for all the kids and Pamaw definitely spoiled the girls as well!  Then we got to have an AWESOME Easter egg hunt thanks to Aunt Kim!

The kids were INTO it!

Aunt Kim always trying to get some loving from Emory!  HA!

So sweet to see all these cousins and second cousins celebrating together!  =)
