Connecticut: Part One

Last minute, as in Thursday night, we decided to go to Johns Brothers house Friday.
I think the last time we were there was when Nellie was 6 months old just before Aunt Kathy went on her mission.
So a trip was LONG over due.

On the way up we went the usual way, up through Baltimore (the girls LOVED the tunnel), Philly, on the New Jersey Turnpike, NYC, then off to Hartford. 
On the way there was a huge accident involving a double decker bus and closing all the north bound lanes of traffic.  It took us almost 3 hours to go from Baltimore to the Delaware state line.
Only to find out that the accident had really been cleaned up and all lanes open just about the time we got off the Freeway. 

Charlotte tried for a good 30 minutes in frustration to put Nellies pants on while sitting her the car seat.

As you can see she was unsuccessful, and very upset about it.

Nellie on the other hand was an angle, happily doing nothing..

We rolled in at about 5:30 this evening from a last minute trip to Connecticut.
We all had a great time, except for maybe butter...
The first thing Charlotte did when let out of the car is go to her bike.
She LOVES her bike..

Me? I went to the couch.. 
John? He went to basketball.
Nellie? She watched my little pony.

It will be nice to sleep in our own beds, although that was probably the most comfy couch I have EVER slept on.

What to do

We are ready for summer.. FYI...

Boredom has been plaguing our house.

Charlotte putters around the house with her head down, kicking her legs, and making strange noises. 
She screams every time I put her in the car. 
Like I am playing some mean joke pretending I am going to let her play outside.

We are all ready for summer..

The weather has been AMAZING!  We ended up at a park with some friends on Friday.
The girls enjoyed it.
Me? I am not so sure.
All Charlotte wanted to do was pretend she was going to jump off the top..
I was on one side and a stranger was on the other to help me out.
My friend was busy taking care of her little explorer Mia.

{isn't she adorable?}

Nellie and Ellie are great friends.
As are Megan and I.

I am grateful for friends who put up with me and my crazy opinions and comments.
I don't think they are crazy, but I am sure others do..

Egg coloring was a big hit!
We only cracked a few.
Charlotte thought she wanted to eat one, until she did then she decided she didn't like it.
Nellie on the other hand kept asking for one, and once we got home she ended up eating them all.
Which I found totally strange since she doesn't like to eat anything..

The Discovery

Charlotte discovered that inside the eggs are treats.
She then became possessive of her eggs, and sat as happy as can be eating all the candy. 
Making sure NO ONE came close.

Party Party

Over the weekend I was asked to take pictures at Cami's  second Birthday Party.
And since I wasn't paid, I wasn't going to boss people around, and with all the grandmas also taking pictures I figured one of them would get some pictures I didn't get.
I was also in competition for the blowing of the candle picture, which I am not sure either one of us got a good one.
It was a super cute party, and Cami looked adorable! 
Miss Cami wanted NOTHING to do with getting her picture taken, so I did the best I could.
Nellie was still in her princess dress for the party before, and all my kids had eaten that day was cake...  
And popcorn...
There was an Easter egg hunt and all the kids had a BLAST getting their eggs.

Happy Happy Birthday Cami!
