Another year in the books

Peace out Pre-K...Kindergarten get ready - after a summer full of fun Annie will be coming for you!

Annie was the Top Female Pre-K runner in Running Club (ran the most miles through the year).  Way to go!


Color Run and other fun

The second weekend in April was a fun one.  We started by doing the Color Run in OKC with Philip's family.
Annie wasn't on board for a picture at this point, clearly.  In her defense, it was early.

It was also packed full of people and just like their promotions say it is actually The Happiest Run on the Planet.  There was music, bubbles, and of course lots of color.

Philip ran ahead with Mackenzie and her friend Declynn while the kids and I kept pace with the younger littles in our group.

Denver ran all of 20 feet but it was a strong sprint.  Good thing he went back to being carried too because look at all of those people he was beating - they didn't have a chance! :)

Unfortunately about 2K into the run it started to rain but that did little to dampen the spirits of the kiddos.

Then on Sunday after church we went to see the Oklahoma City Dodgers play.  

As you can see Denver thoroughly enjoyed the corporate perks of the club seats.

Taylor and Annie had fun too

Afterward we played at the park downtown before heading home.

Give it up for weekend fun!


Easter - the day after Disney

Easter was the day after we got back from Disney.  We actually made it home about 8:30 the night before so after unpacking, starting laundry, and showering it was after 11 before we got to bed.

The Easter bunny still hopped on by.

Easter morning there was a lot of stretching and yawning because well, TIRED, but the kids were still excited to go through their baskets.

and re-discover the joy that is confetti eggs.

We then went to church and I once again failed to get a picture of them in their Sunday best but rest assured, they were cute.

After church we pulled through a drive thru and got some chicken because as mentioned previously TIRED.

The kids changed after lunch and hunted some eggs and eventually just began cracking confetti eggs.

We had a pretty low-key day of transition from vacation mode to life as we know it. Overall an uneventful but very enjoyable holiday.


Fairytale Ending

Our final day in the parks at Disney we went back to the Magic Kingdom.

We started our morning out at the resort with breakfast and some coloring while the adults finished their Mickey Waffles, of course.

Then we caught the shuttle to the park - I believe my general appearance would be considered haggard at this point 

When we got to there everyone knew the lay of the land now so we started hitting up all the things we wanted to do again or make sure we hadn't missed.

By now all the kids were loving rides so we did a lot of that.

Denver's size prohibited him from riding a lot so he got on the train with Nana and Papa went a couple of times around the park.

Which wore him out.

We ate lunch in Cinderella's castle and enjoyed a fancy feast while hob-nobbing with the princesses again.

Afterward Denver took Papa on a walking tour of the whole park drinking all the Coke he wanted and Wyatt and his Dad got some riding in while the girls got princess makeovers at the Bippity Boppity Botique.

They were so very pleased with the results.  (Contrary to the look on Brynn's face which could have been there because Annie playing the typical big sister role informed her that her Ariel outfit was "inappropriate" due to it showing her tummy.)

We played around some more and met Tinkerbell 

then finished the day with prime viewing of the Main Street Electrical Parade.

The next morning we ate breakfast and caught the Magical Express to the airport

Luckily there was a pretty perfectly timed nap for this guy

and a play place where we had a 3 hour layover.

The Disney World trip was every kind of wonderful and gave us all memories that will last a lifetime, and even if those memories fade, we'll still have the fond thoughts when looking back that allow us to realize what a great gift family and time spent with them is.
