Indiana Trip

Sorry it's been so long since we last blogged. The weather has been georgous, so we've been outside in all our free time.
Last weekend we took a road trip to Indiana to visit Kory's grandparents. We took 2 cars - boys in 1 car (Tom, Tony, Kory and Zander) and girls in the other car (Bonnie, Kacey, Teresa and Emily). It was super fun! Emily is potty training right now, so our car made the most "pit stops". LOL! Thanks to Kacey and Bonnie for their patience, and Emme did fantastic! Didn't have a single accident all weekend.

Here we are playing at Grandma Marion's house - she found all these old toys that Kory and Kacey remember playing with when they were kids:

We spent a whole afternoon outside at the farm. Kory was anxious to show Emily all the tractors and combines. Here they are - Em's first time in a combine:

Grandpa Randy had fun with both Zander and Emily in the combine. Too bad Emily wouldn't sit still long enough for us to get a good picture!! She was adamant that we close the door for some reason:

This was me being creative in my picture taking. It's Emme, Randy, Kacey and Kory looking out at the farm field:

Here is Daddy showing Emily something very important about that piece of dirt:

Grandpa even got the go cart out- so Emme and Daddy took a few laps around the house. Too bad it wasn't warmer, but we still had a great time:

This is at Grandma & Grandpa Miiller's house. Emily was happily blowing bubbles:

I can't believe everyone was looking!! Here's a fantastic picture of Grandma & Grandpa Miiller with Emme and Zander:

We had a really nice time and are glad we were able to go visit. We don't get down there as often as we should.

Easter Weekend

This year Easter was much more enjoyable since Em was able to get more involved.
We took a lot of pictures, of course!

This first batch is from Saturday in IL at my parents "apartment".

Here is Em in her beautiful Easter dress:

Opening her Easter basket from Grammy & Grampa:

Love this one of Daddy and Emme:

Emme loves giving Uncle Mike noonies. I am so happy I got an action shot:

Emme's Auntie CeCe:

Change of clothes for the first attempt at coloring Easter eggs:

CeCe helped her the whole time, so I could take pics. Thanks Casey!

After it stopped raining, we walked over to Harms Farm (my aunt and uncle's place) and checked out their pond. Emme was frog hunting!
This batch of pics is from Sunday at Bonnie & Tom's house.
We tried really hard to get a nice pic of Em in her Easter dress and Zander in his handsome outfit, but neither of them were too interested:
Here is Em opening her Easter present from her godfather Nathan:
Here is Z loving his Superman bouncy ball thingy:
Here is Em doing her Easter Egg hunt with Grandma:
Now she's organizing all of her treats and money:
We had a fantastic weekend. Thanks to both sets of Grandparents for making it so memorable. We really had a great time!

#1 Grandkids

There has been some discussion lately amongst the Marion kids about who the favorite grandkids are - I just wanted to post a picture that will give us all a final answer.
