very late easter pics

wow – i am a bit late with these! and really the pictures are terrible, thankfully the kids are cute!

yup, this is the best picture i had of our little man. bummer ’cause he looked so yummy with his tie on and his brown converse.

i put sponge curlers in the girls’ hair saturday night before easter. they love having “curlies”.

we did a little egg hunt in our backyard with our neighbors. lily was quite the hoarder.

a very late happy easter to you all!


bad blogger, BAD BLOGGER!

yup, thats me. i stink at this! i feel like i have so much to say at times that i don’t say anything at all. but i have another excuse: i’ve been busy! but a really fun busy. this week my sister-in-law and her 3 girls and a friend came up for a visit for spring break, then we were all joined by more friends (a family of 4!). we had quite the full house, all 14 of us! it was so much fun. shannon and her girls are so fun to be around and it was great to get to know the hamen’s better. here’s a few pics of our time together:

amber and ashley were basically my nannies for a few days! silas took a few naps on amber – great for me, not so great for amber’s back, i’m sure, although she never once complained – sweet girls. we even got to have a night out with all the grown-ups – so much fun eating “ridiculously good food”, laughing, and catching up.

we had a very busy day on thursday. let’s see…. we hiked in montana de oro (all the girls pictured above), ate lunch, napped, went to the beach, went to avila valley barn to visit the animals and get ice cream, went to cal poly to visit all the newborn horses, then topped it off with the famous slo farmer’s market. wow! what a day! we did so much, but it was all really fun.

we had a craft day one afternoon where all the girls made these balls coordinating with their bedrooms.

all in all, we had a very nice spring break! thanks shan and cathi for coming all the way up here!
