Egg hunt

Who doesn't love to hunt for eggs? I know this kid does!

We wanted to do something fun together the day before Easter. Nothing too elaborate, just something to spend time together as a family. We decided to pack up a picnic lunch and head to the park. It was perfect. I don't know why we don't do things like this more often. It really is the small things in life. 
It was about to start raining so we headed back home for our Easter baskets. I think this is definitely the most excited I've been about a basket. Ethan and I picked up this pull-string Woody at a consignment and we knew Nixon would LOVE it. I had been waiting and waiting to see his reaction and it was just what I wanted!
Pure joy. He hasn't stopped playing with it, and I couldn't be more excited!

Nixon's new do.

We decided to do something a little different this time around. I think this fits his personality perfect. I'm not sure why, but it just feels and looks right on him.

Double trouble

These two boys are so fun to watch together. Although we really do have to watch them because they can be trouble together, but it's also pretty entertaining.
I mean look at those faces. They may look innocent, but they can be sneaky!

Nixon and "Ryree"

These two love each other, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I would say he asks about Rylee at least once a day. I don't blame him though, she's pretty awesome.

My dapper boy

I mean come on!! Look at this kid. He oozes dapperness (Is that even a word? No? Yes? Oh who cares.) and personality. 
And how I wish I could claim it all comes from me, but clearly that is not the case. Be still my heart, I have the best two guys.

We got the chance to attend a luau put on by our church with a pig cooked in a pit, a photo booth and some Polynesian dancers. There were tons of people there, and the food was basically wiped out after 20 minutes. But it was dang good and who doesn't love a good photo op in a photo booth?
Unfortunately, I didn't have anything for Nixon to wear that was even remotely festive, so he rocked his stripes and jeans and still looked adorable.

My flight buddy

Nixon and I have been on many a trips together. Ethan is usually working or school when we fly so we've gotten pretty good at this whole handling flights together. I honestly couldn't ask for a better flier. I think of the 15+ flights we've been on together there have been less than 5 meltdowns. Our trip back home was no exception. What's even better? Getting on a flight, only to be assigned an upgraded seat and no one sitting next to us, allowing Nixon to have his own seat without having to pay for it! SCORE!!
