Happy Happy Easter!

(I know, I know! I have been a bad blogger lately! forgive me! I will catch you up, promise!)

We had a great weekend! On Friday, the Woods came for a visit and my parents came too! They haven't seen Alex in forever! I was so busy with visiting and chasing Alex that I didn't take any pics! Bad, I know! :( We went to the new Mighty Fine Burgers by Ikea and had so much fun! They have a really good playground right there so the little ones were having a blast! and we could actually sit and chat after dinner! Wow, what a concept! It was such a special treat to see my family!

The rest of the weekend was pretty low key, but much needed! We did some family shopping and got Alex some stuff for the playroom- a new rug and tent from IKEA. Travis just had to get him the tent and Alex LOVES it! We also got Alex some new "walking" shoes! Crazy mom has been squishing his feet in size 3 shoes when he is really a 4 and a half! Poor guy!

Easter was great! Just the 3 of us! We went to church in the morning and in the afternoon we went to the park and got snow cones! A special treat for me since I can't have ice cream (too much milk for Alex). It was raining in the morning so these are the only pictures I got of him dressed up. We were running late too (like always) so they are nothing fancy. His Easter basket was pretty lame. I can admit that because I didn't really do one. I got him a new Wiggles DVD and a Easter bunny rubber duck. Good thing Alex is easy to please and he seemed happy with it!

The grass is cool. Forget the other stuff.Hm, ok, let's see here.

Tastes good.
good for standing too!
Here is a picture of all the kids at playgroup this week. Kristen prepared an egg hunt for them. Alex was very confused and not that into it. He was hungry and didn't like the grass on his knees. He did like the treats that miss kristen so kindly put in the eggs. She color coded the eggs so that Alex would have his milk-free snacks- so sweet and a great idea!

Monday I took Alex back to the doctor to get his ears checked one last time . We are calling it an Easter Miracle! He got two thumbs up! Totally clear ears!! Wahooo!! I can't believe it! I am so glad we didn't rush to tubes- Amen, sistah!
