springtime fun

I'm just gonna say right now that this post is going to be picture-heavy. :) We've been having a lot of fun!

Annie got a beautiful Easter dress from GramE. Here she is before church . . . 

. . . and then with Teddy Bear, putting the bow in his hair

We threw a springtime birthday party for our friend Spencer. It was so great with amazing cheese fondue and yummy cake! I made a bread braid for the fondue and we had a lovely time with friends . . . I forgot my camera, though. So this is the only picture I have of that night, Annie's party outfit:

Here are a few other pictures from our sunny days . . .

Annie is getting to be very good at folding her arms

waiting patiently for Grandma at the gate

what our yard looks like most afternoons . . . 

So, today we went down to an Easter egg hunt in Reisterstown, MD, at the home where I grew up! It was so fun to bring Annie and relive a lot of my childhood memories. There were a ton of kids there, and they said that was only about half of their usual turnout!!

waiting with her basket for the hunt to begin!

working the crowd

and . . . GO!!

Annie picked up on the whole idea of hunting for eggs tremendously well :) See that competitive look in her eyes?

True to form, Annie picked up a cute, older boy along the way to help her with her loot :)

swinging on the swing--so many memories!!

Leisa and Sam were in town visiting, so we got to see them, too!!

Heading home, so happy

Happy Easter, everyone!

She continues to get more darling with every passing day! Thanks for sharing....we miss having little ones around here, Gary doesn't seem interested in dyeing or looking for eggs. :)

We have tons of Texas wildflowers in bloom down here, but seeing Annie sitting on the ground by the clothesline, I am grateful that you don't have the rough St. Augustine or FireAnts!
