Autumn's Easter Party - MDO

Autumn had her Easter Party at school and the kids had a blast. Here she is before we left for school.

The kids came in from outside and were all flushed and sweaty. They were able to cool down and eat while a few parents and one of her teachers went out to the playground to hide the eggs.

This soccer egg was her absolute favorite. She carried it around all day.

It is so much fun to share these early events with her because everything is just so new and exciting!

March 10 - Rodeo Days at MDO

Her "catchup" that she made that day:

She was trying on an outfit that Gram had made for her last summer. Yes, her Christmas tree was still up. I think we took it down the next week when we were gone for Spring Break. She changed back into a long sleeve shirt and long pants.

Spring Break 2010, Part 2

One of the main reasons we went up to Grapevine during Spring Break was to go to the Fort Worth Botanic Garden to see the butterflies. We went to see Butterflies in the Garden. During these certain months they release a large number of butterflies each day. We got there in the mid-morning and had to wait in line until it was our appointed time. Walking in you had to pass under this huge blower that dispenses humid air. IT WAS SO GROSS! And it was loud, so Autumn was sort of thrown out of sorts for a bit. And there were lots of people so she just didn't know what to think. The whole habitat was really humid, so I was uncomfortable. Luckily, Dad took my purse, and Mom took Autumn. That way I could take pictures of Autumn and I wasn't as uncomfortable in the humidity because I wasn't carrying my purse. We stayed in there for about 20 min but it was really crowded so we had to wait for the people to get their fill and leave. Once it had calmed down a bit we could look around better. Unfortunately, Autumn got buzzed by a few large butterflies and she didn't like that. She did enjoy the butterflies from afar, though.

After the butterfly exhibit, we went outside to look at the gardens.

She had a lot of fun running around on the grass and looking at the different flowers.

Spring Break 2010

Autumn and I drove up to see Gram and Grandpa for Autumn's Spring Break. My parents had just had a tree cut down from the front yard, so Autumn wanted to play on it.

The itsy bitsy spider crawled up the water spout

Down came the rain and washed the spider OUT!

Out came the sun and dried up all the rain!
