Gramps Birthday weekend

Last weekend we met Kevin's family in Florence, AL for Gramps birthday. We stayed at the Marriott Shoals Hotel & Spa and it was so nice! We really did not have a plan we just did whatever. Saturday we went to the Spring Park in Tuscumbia and just let the kids play. Unfortunately, the battery in my camera was dead and I did not get to take any pictures while we were at the park. We all had lots of fun, we got to ride the train, the carousel/merry-go-round, and there was even a roller coaster! I can not forget that there was an indoor pool and that is where the kids wanted to spend most of their time. Here are a few pictures. Happy late birthday Gramps! Hope you had a great weekend.

Easter 2009

Here is a quick recap of our Easter festivities! Friday Aunt Jeka came over and we went to the shops at Brickerton for the 9th Annual Giant Egg hunt. There were so many children and at least 10,000 eggs to find. Drew was able to find 10 all by himself! We walked around for a little while and saw the Easter Bunny and then left. Sunday morning we woke up got ready and went to church with Mama D. After church we went to Mama D's had lunch and then started dying eggs. Drew had so much fun. He was not sure what was going on at first but he soon figured out he could make a mess! He had blue hands for the rest of the afternoon. When we were done we hid the eggs outside. He got to have his very own egg hunt. We then went to Aunt Anna's to dye more eggs and have another egg hunt. Well, Drew was so tired he slept through most of the dying and hunting. We did save him a few eggs to dye so when he woke up his great aunts could see him dying eggs for the first time. Well, I will just share the pictures now. This is just a few but you will get the idea.
