So sorry these are late in coming, but I just picked two of them up at the studio. The rest I took on my iphone. Kyrie's ballet recital photos!

We finally finished our chicken coop! Yes, Brian did most of the work, but I am proud to say I made the door and cut all the trim! We are now the proud owners of 3 chickens. Kyrie loves her puppy and chickens and said "So we're pretty much farmers now right?" Not quite Kyrie.

Kyrie's First Grade class went on a field trip to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. I don't know which Kyrie was more excited about, the park or the bus ride over. Kyrie has never ridden the bus and she was so excited to sit with her friends and she kept going on about not wearing a seat belt, apparently this was a very big deal for her.
Posting a little late, but here are some Easter pics. Our Court rallied together for a rather over the top Easter egg hunt. I think the total egg count was around 900, for 7 kids. Yep that's right each kid got about 128 eggs. Kyrie said about half way through, "Mom, my back is really starting to hurt bending over for all these eggs!". Wow, life is rough!
Above the girls, working up a sweat.
Before and after the Easter egg hunt we had a talk with Kyrie making sure she knew that Easter wasn't about eggs or the Easter bunny. I know this must be super confusing we were literally throwing eggs at the poor girl all day. But she told us she knew it wasn't about the eggs. We talked about how Christ died for us and how He came to life again on the third day, what we now call Easter. I know my Redeemer lives! I love Him and know He loves me.

Our backyard was a pile of dirt! Kyrie would occasionally rally her friends and take the bikes and her sand toys to the backyard only to return covered in mud. We loved working with Robert from Integrity Landscape, just had to give him a shout out!
We love our backyard! We have an orange tree, an Avocado tree, a lime tree and a tangerine tree:) I'm also loving my planter boxes and we've already roasted marshmallows over the fire pit for s'mores.
Every time Brian would grill he would pull the BBQ out of the garage onto our driveway out front. But no longer! We now grill on our back patio, as it should be. So for our first backyard BBQ we invited the neighbors to join us.
