Spring Breakers

We had so much fun this spring break. We packed in a lot more than I usually like to, but had such a great time together that it was worth it.

Playing dress up and a million other games of pretend
Oakley being creative with his pillow pet
Catching lots of bugs and snails. Oakley left them on the counter over night and quite a few escaped!
Brandt took Kalle on a Daddy Daughter date. She decided she wanted to walk to her favorite place to grab a bite.
You have to have a St. Patrick's day party when you are Irish!
We LOVE cousins!!!
Brennen and Oakley were pretty excited about their green hair (food coloring)
Sucking skittles with a straw and other fun games
Holding the Guinea Pig
The Zoo- on the busiest day of the year!



Brennen followed this goat around for a few minutes hugging it just like this:
Love you Sis!

More Please!

What happens when you take a 2.5 hour nap during the day? You can't sleep even though it is over 2.5 hours past your bedtime!!! So I thought I would update the blog.

After saving for almost four years, I finally got a Blendtec. It is a blender and so much more. We make green smoothies everyday- and LOVE them! What goes in our favorite green smoothie recipe? 2 C coconut milk, 4 C spinach, 1 C collards, 1 carrot, 1 T flax oil, 1/2 C yogurt, 2 bananas, 1 apple, 1 C frozen strawberries, and 1 C frozen pineapple, mango, and peach mixture.

It is an easy way to get the kids to get more vegetables and I always hear "More Please!"
