Easter Egg Hunt and random other things

First of all - I would like to start this blog off with a moment of silence. There has been a death in the family. My trusty Polaroid. While not the most high tech fancy schmancy camera on the market, it has done its job for well over a year now. Today, it met it's match. Rock. Hard unmoving, rock. We shall miss our trusty camera. Ok, moving on.

Last night Grandma Freed came over and we colored easter eggs. Bentley and Chloe had a blast. As you can see, Bentley was as methodical and precise about painting Easter eggs as he is about every aspect of his life.
















You can literately see the concentration on his face. He did make some beautiful eggs however.














Chloe thought it was fun the splash the eggs in the water. Typical.














Today the whole fam damily went to Rockville for the annual Easter egg hunt. We had a blast.
Here's Chloe in the pack and play. Aka - baby jail. She was only in there for a matter of minutes before she decided it was no fun and she wanted OUT. She even went so far as to try to climb out.















Megan has an adorable picture of her with her hand on her cheek with a look on her face like..... hmmmm how am I gonna get outta here?
She did love the four-wheelers though!















And the water bottles.....
















The definite highlight of the day was without a doubt the Easter Egg hunt. The Easter Bunny sure did get some good non-chocolate candy this year. Last year he must have learned his lesson! Since this was Chloe's first year being involved it was a ton of fun.














Bentley really got into the swing of things and ended up with an entire bucket of candy. Wooo weeee!
















On an entirely unrelated note- here an adorable video I was telling Megan about today. As I was telling her I needed to show her she said " Why don't you blog it?" DURRR.... its very dark, but it was taken with Jesus' cell phone. Listen close because its super cute!

This week we went to Salt Lake for a little getaway. We Stayed with my step-sister Niki and had a blast. We were able to go shopping at the Gateway which I had never been to and LOVED! We saw Chelsey and went to dinner with her and Niki and Lindsey. We went to Bucca Di Pepo, an Italian restaurant we had never been to. And of course we had to hit the Zoo! Bentley was talking about it for days before. He kept talking about the monkeys, elephants and owls. Yeah, I know.... owls. Whatever.... weird kid. The weather was overcast and a bit cold for us "St. Georgeians" but over all it was a good trip. Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure!

How do YOU measure up?






And just because I can - my belly. I am roughly 15 weeks right now. Can you see the belly or is it just looking like fat?
