I also admitted defeat and had to update my blog template so I am missing some of my "extras" that I will try to add again later.
I am FINALLY going to download our Disney pictures so I can see them for the first time too. I will get them online soon to share I promise. There has been lots going on too that I will share. I am all hunched over typing this as I hurt my back again so I can't promise it will be a speedy update as sitting in the computer chair really hurts it.
I've added the follower link and a subscription link to the blog now too.

Get ready for TONS of pictures and videos though.
The kids are so excited they can't stand it. The weather is supposed to be high 90's there this weekend, I am sweating already.

Spencer reminds us that every Saturday is "family game night". Its actually a lot of fun. We turn off the tv and play together as a family. We do games or puzzles or whatever they want. Tonight and we played cards and whack-a-mole. Then the kids decided they wanted to comb my hair and put makeup and nail polish on me. Then they slathered me in moisturizer and rubbed my feet. I LOVE my kids. lol
When the show finally started the rain had subsided a bit and it was just mist blowing in and not sunami like waves of water.

The little ones had their Easter party and egg hunt at the daycare today too and told me all about it. Since its a daycare its not really a parent volunteer kind of day. I think there is more candy now than there was at halloween.

We had a busy, but great day today. We started by going to Home Depot for their children's workshop and made bird houses. They are really neat as you can suction cup them to the window and one side is clear so you can see the birds inside. We'll just have to wait and see if we have any takers now.
Then we headed to an Easter egg hunt with my multiples group. The kids had a ball. They got to see the Easter bunny and even hold some real bunnies. They are all asking for a bunny now, I have been thinking about it for a long time. Those of you that know me will know that I NEVER jump in to anything and have been researching this for a while and still haven't decided. lol
We then headed to do crafts at Lakeshore Learning, they adore Miss. Kristina the woman that does the crafts. Caden who is usually so shy and won't talk to anyone and even hides behind me always runs in to give her a big hug.
When we were done there we went for a picnic and then a walk. The park was was too crowded so we saw a nice place beside the lake with NO ONE there so figured it would be a good spot. After we got all set up the security guard came out to tell us that we weren't allowed to be there. I figured there had to be a good reason why it was empty. She was nice enough to let us finish our picnic though. After she left Sydney said she was happy that I didn't get arrested. I am sure glad too. lol
I decided it was too early to go home so we headed to another park and did some more walking on some trails. The weather was great and aside from the little princess aka Peyton saying that her legs were tired it was great. She would rather walk the mall than go on a hike. ;)

Spencer performed in his first grade school play today called "Stone Soup". He was really disappointed that he didn't get a "solo", but did great anyway. He was just so cute and sang his little heart out.
He is the one in the orange baseball cap.
He says he wants to act in a play and have the lead. He has always been so outgoing and NOT shy.
I asked Caden if he was going to sing in a play next year for kindergarten and he looked at me and said "NO!" He apparently got the shy genes in the family. lol

Luckily he didn't hurt himself and did get right back on the bike to try again.

Caden is VERY afraid of heights so he only went half way up before he got scared. Peyton only made it about halfway too before she wanted down. Daddy even climbed up and did really good.
Spencer was standing behind me rubbing my shoulders just like a boxing coach does and was telling me "you can do it Mommy, come on!" The other kids were telling me it was my turn too.
Well I guess I was bullied in to trying it, plus I couldn't let Bob show me up. The guys running it were mean though and wouldn't let me climb the kiddie wall.
I started out really well and went up quite a bit before my arms gave out.
That's what I get for thinking that it looked really easy to do. I told them that I couldn't go any further and I needed down. There were 3 guys about 20 years old in there and they wouldn't let me give up. They told me to hang there and take a break.
I wasn't sure the girl that was holding me could hold my butt up there, but she assured me she was OK. So I shook my arms and got some blood circulating again and made it up a few more feet. It was hard now as the wall was jutting out and I had to use my arms to hold myself against the wall and pull up too. I told them that this time I really couldn't go any further, I could barely feel my arms. They would NOT let me down, I thought I was going to have to call the police with my cell phone, but unfortunately it was in my purse. They kept yelling for me to put my foot on the yellow rock and push myself up. There was a TINY little spot to put my big toe on the rock and they wanted me to push myself up?? Have they seen the size of my butt? lol
They finally let me down after watching my feeble attempts with NO success to get any higher. I couldn't even push the tab to release my helmet because my hands were so weak and shaking.
Once I got down I realized how close I was to the top, no wonder they kept trying to get me to finish. I will have to try again another time if my arms ever recover. Maybe this time they will believe me and let me do the kiddie wall ;)
