Spring Break with Bubba!

Carson, or as Lily calls her brother, Bubba! was here for a little over a week for Spring Break! We really had a great time! Lily absolutely loves her brother! She doesn't want to take a nap or go to bed while he is here because she is afraid she will miss something. Some of Lily's favorite things to do with Bubba are throw balls at him, do "this little piggy" with him (she loves it when he goes "weeweewee all the way home!" and tickles her and just be a constant shadow to him!

Carson is a good big brother and try's very hard to not get annoyed with her (they are after all 7 years apart!)

We had a lot of family time this trip and James got to have one on one time with Carson too! Our favorite thing to do as a family is crawl into bed together in the mornings and try to relax...which is nearly impossible because there is a 1 year old and 8 year old jumping all over the place and making lots of noise...which we absolutely love!


For Easter we had a busy weekend! Now we all know the Easter Bunny isn't real...but it sure is fun to find eggs and eat candy! Carson and Lily went to Papa James' company egg hunt at the Sheriffs Department on Saturday Morning. They separated the kids into age groups. Lily was not too sure about finding the eggs, but she quickly got into it! Especially once she found out there was "Canny" in the eggs! The fun quickly ended for her when she saw the Easter Bunny come into the room...she was a little petrified and wouldn't let us put her down again!

Carson had a lot of fun too! Him and his cousins searched for eggs then had a fun time searching for money in a hay pile! I think Carson ended up getting about 5 bucks for his effort!

We ended the day having a final egg hunt at Gramma and Papa's house! This is the third year we have done this and the kids LOVE it! Gramma does an awesome job getting prizes and Papa hides the eggs!
