easter 2013

Easter seemed to come and go in a flash!  lily's birthday is always around (or on) Easter so it's a total whirlwind celebrating both at once in the same week or so time span.  Grady is a Santa crier and said "all done easter bunny" about 45 times every time we're at the mall.  The mall is about 7 minutes from our house so we're there a lot, which lead to the 45 rejections for the poor bunny.  But one day he saw Lily go up and give him a high five and hug and i could see he was intrigued.  He gave an air high five which means he was 100 feet away and they gave each other a virtual high five.  I gave up on the idea this year and hoped for next year a lap picture.  Buuuut, after a bunch of the trips to the mall, building up from high fives to hugs and walking by with lots of waving, circling back and forth, he finally said he wanted to take a picture with the Easter bunny.  I thought he'd back out last minute, but I was wrong.  Even the ladies who worked with the bunny were shocked because they saw the progression.  I seriously can't tell you how far he came in just a few weeks to get to this point!! Without further ado, tah-dah!!!...(u can tell i had no intentions of Bunny pics bc of their non springy attire but i had to strike while the iron was hot) photo IMG_1012_zps878ddf5c.jpg

The Bunny visited lily's school, but lily kept whispering to me that he wasn't real because he could see his hands.

An Easter show at school where she sang her heart out! She was pretty nervous beforehand so we were holding our breath hoping she wouldn't back out last minute or be a puddle of tears.  Wrong again!

and a time out in  the middle of the egg hunt....

I have 30 pictures like this where she puts her arm around him as their walking trying to guide him in the right direction and he usually says "all done back lily" but she keeps on trying.  She always wants to hold his hand too and she usually hears "all done hold hand lily".  Can you tell he says "all done" a lot.  it's his modern day version of "no" which we're hearing plenty of lately. photo IMG_1327_zps126694be.jpg

Lily went to the mall with Jen for a special birthday surprise at Build a Bear and LOOK who she got to ride in the elevator with out of the blue!!

Make sure you only use clean balls for playing on indoor simulator.
Nowadays with flight simulators you can have lots of fun out of these games and besides all this you do not have to spend thousands.
At this time, and in a good location, the leader
should set up a few anchors and belay the second
climber so he can climb up and hand off the equipment he has been recovering.
We would like to invite you to join our virtual airline
in Ireland if you have some time that you can spend with is to
fly online. In general, it is something manufactured, to pretend to be (or simulate), something else more valuable.
