Basement Remodel, Harrogate Trip, Mikaiya's Birthday Party and Walker Family Easter....

We officially started remodeling our basement. My brother-in-law, Tony came over on a full day Sat and Sun to help Kory out. They two guys tore apart all the walls in our basement and then Tony built us a few new walls.

Living room area pre-remodel

Old doorway, pre-remodel

Wall that doesn't exist anymore, pre-remodel

To the left is our utility/laundry toom which remains unchanged, to the right is the old spare bedroom which is now smaller and lacking a wall right now :)

This is me standing in Kory's old office, looking into the living room towards the bedroom. All the walls are gone!!!!

Kory is working on electrical soon and then comes plumbing (for our new bathroom! YAY!!!) and then drywall. I can't wait to have the new space. It's going to be awesome. I really really really wanted to say thanks to Tony for all his help. And thanks to Kacey for letting us borrow Tony for an entire weekend :)

I kept Em busy while the boys were working downstairs. She loves her root beer! Thankfully the weather was totally awesome and we played outside a lot.

Just last week I had to travel to Harrogate, England for work and stayed at the most beautiful hotel. I had to take some pictures.  It was at a 300 acre golf course resort...just amazing!

Here is my bedroom - the hotel was Redding Park

My bathroom had heated floor, heated towel rack, a awesome stand-up shower with a rain faucet and a super nice tub too.
This past Saturday we had Mikaiya's birthday party. Hard to believe she is already 6 years old. I remember the day Cori called and said "Are you ready to be an Auntie???". I was like NO WAY! Mikaiya was born 4 weeks early, but thankfully she was healthy as can be! Love you Mikaiya!!
Here is Mikaiya with one of her good friends Ellie at the bowling party

Braenna and Emily - apparently Braenna is in an "eye closing during pictures" phase.....

YES! Em loved bowling!!
This past Sunday we had Easter with my family at Casey & Mike's house. The girls had a fantastic time at the Easter egg hunt!!
Here is Em finding an egg!

Mikaiya looking for eggs in the fence line

She stopped just long enough for me to snap a picture!

Emily found the lucky $1 egg hidden up above the door frame. Uncle Mike was pretty darn proud of that one :)

The three little girls. So cute!
Emily got sent home from school today with pink eye. So in our boredom, I painted her fingers and toes all different colors. She loved it!!

She wanted a silly picture
