Cell Phone Pics

Decided to do a cell phone download - plus it is the only evidence of Val's trip too!

Cute pick of the family while I was shopping :)

Traveling back from Omaha

Aunt Val (as we call her) took one for the team and held Lucy's head so she could sleep without her head bobbing down. Seriously - how awesome is that!

Celebrating Val's birthday with a little Skyline Chili - I was hesitant to try it as - it looks just weird - but honestly, it was really really good.

We went to Fiesta Jalapeno for her birthday dinner and instead of dessert - they surprised Val with a shot of tequila!!! We have never seen them do that before!

We don't have a ton pf pictures from Val's visit but it was a good time! Other random pictures - like Lucy brushing her teeth on her own!

Last weekend we also went to the Natural History Museum which is always a good time!

We made a stop by the Hof Brauhaus in Cleveland. Lucy loved the onion rings!

The it was time for a fire pit. It's so nice we are back into fire pit weather! We had one with Val in town too - it got a liiittttllleee crazy -oops - I think we were just excited to be together and be able to be outside! I mean - who wouldn't be entertained by a nieghbor speaking pirate all night.  From now on it will be more mellow fire pits - just some smores and some fire that is it!

And fast forward to today - we went on some errands and the girls were too cute not to take pictures!

Time to go make dinner and get ready for the week!

Omaha Easter

I'm finally finding time to post the Omaha pictures! This trip was a little different - mainly because of all Omaha decided to come down with the stomach flu - geez! We avoided some people for awhile as well as I don't know if we were ever at full power. I feel like someone was always missing from being sick or whatever! By some miracle though, we didn't catch anything. I hope I didn't just jinx ourselves.

So my pictures are spotty at best. We start off at Bob and Lauren's rehearsal for their wedding. It was fun to see where it will all take place and run around.

Next was our first Easter - we were down a couple of people - but we kept going. The kids going on the scavenger hunt!

 Then it was time for hunting some eggs!

 We also celebrated Lauren and my birthday.

Next was Easter! Everyone ready in their Sunday's best!

We spent Easter at my mom's house as the Gonzales' were sick too! We lost Blake to the sickness but gained Kendall back!

 It was gorgeous outside - we spent most of the day outside! Kendall and Heidi did great at the Easter egg hunt...Lucy - was just being Lucy.

Blake, Christina and Carter finally felt good enough to join us in the afternoon. Carter is a cutie! He was getting over the flu and a nasty cold but still a cutie!

Onto our finally Easter that was postponed. Poor Grandma Gonzales was really under the weather but she gave the girls a wonderful Easter anyways!

 Lucy was once again - being Lucy - only grabbing like one egg at a time!

We also was able to have a play date with Ayla, Aubree, Anne and Dean. Also Dean's sister Marla was able to come hangout too!

 Yes - Anne has a selfie stick. Awesome.

 Our last day - getting all dressed up for Nana's retirement party!

Next blog I will dig through some cell phone pictures. I know I captured some of the fun trip back to Cleveland. Val rode with us - survived and we ran around Cleveland for a few days to celebrate her birthday!

It was great to see everyone in Omaha and we can't wait for Bob's wedding!
