Our Little Ketchup Lover

Today Jon learned not to leave Lexi unsupervised with ketchup...

I think this goes beyond licking the plate clean!

Our (short) Trip to Maine

We went to Maine last weekend for a very short trip to celebrate the life of my late grandmother, Madelyn Benner. She would have been 85 this June and while we know that she is in a better place now with my grandfather, we will all miss her.

Here are a few pictures from our trip. I'll be honest and confess that I didn't take nearly enough pictures. While we were at my grandmother's house, we stopped by the ocean. I did remember to pull out my camera and snap a few there. Don't be fooled by the sunshine and beautiful views, it was about 55-60 degrees outside and the water couldn't have been much above 40 degrees.

Look out baywatch!

Cameron INSISTED on swimming. He gets his cold tolerence from his father.

(Yes - that's his tongue!) Can you tell Aunt Amanda was up in Maine at the same time?

Look at him jumping fearlessly into the icy water. Like I said - he gets that from Dad. Brrrr. We'll have to bring them back this summer when it's a little warmer. We'll make sure to pack swim-trunks next time. :)

Traumatizing Easter Pictures

As we've done every year, we took the kids to have their Easter pictures taken. Cameron was a champion. Smiling on que, posing and generally being a super-star. Here's how his pictures turned out:

Lexi on the other hand, was HORRID! Forget smiling, she wouldn't stop screaming! Here's the proof:

Terrible, I know. (In her defense, she was teething... 4 at the same time to be exact.)

So we took a few more at home... on a day when she wasn't getting 4 teeth in at the same time. They turned out much better:

We took a few more before church this morning. What can I say, I take a lot of pictures. (It's probably some sort of addiction really.)

The Easter Bunny stopped by our house this weekend and left a couple of things that wouldn't fit in their baskets. Cameron got a big boy bike with flames on the side and Lexi got a PINK lawn mower. The were both psyched! Here's Cameron on his bike:

With Grandpa around there was also an abundance of tickling! Grandpa is the BEST tickle monster! (He has had a little practice over the years.)

The Easter Bunny also brought a lot of bubbles and the amazing weather allowed for HOURS of bubble fun. Here are a couple shots of the good times:

The girls all went on a walk...

The boys contemplated going for a canoe ride, but decided to wait until the ice was out first... Maybe next weekend! :)

Hope your weekends were as fun as ours!
