Here are some pictures from our Easter adventures this year.  The first are of the boys finding their baskets and eggs at the house.  And the toys that they each built.  Then pictures from our friends house where we had Easter lunch.  I had to take a picture of the deviled eggs that I made - they took me long enough to peal :)!  Enjoy - hope you all had a great holiday too.

sorry that this one is so fuzzy!

Alex found two eggs but left the one in the bunnies legs for his brother - see below

Getting ready for the egg hunt - the big boys had to wait till all the little ones got a chance to go

The Easter Bunny even paid us a visit!!
Here are my deviled eggs - they have bacon and green onions on top - yummy!

Then for dinner we went over to another friends house - she made a yummy turkey!  Thanks Debby!!

Wamego Tulip Festival

Yesterday we went out to the Wamego Tulip Festival.   The boys had a great time on the bouncy castles - that cost a fortune, going through the petting zoo and riding a pony!  We also got to take a couple of pictures in front of the tulips!  Here are some of the highlights...

Another Soccer Game

Here are some more pictures of Alex playing soccer.  His last game was on Wednesday the 13th.  It was an emotional game for Alex, he had two hand balls and got called for them so that was upsetting to him.  He couldn't have avoided one and the other would have hit him in the face so he really couldn't have avoided that one either.  Oh well - it is never fun for them to take the ball from your team and give it to the other one.  His team did really good against the team - they played them last season and got beat like 20-1.  This time it was much closer - they only lost by one or two.  Here are the pics

ps- yes Mike, that is your favorite ump - but he was really nice to Alex when he got upset about the hand balls

Rodeo Day at UCC Preschool

Yesterday was rodeo day at Luke's Preschool.  Here are some pictures of Luke and Alex before school and then some of Luke and Ben (our neighbor) at the school.

 Look at my Handsome Cowboy!
 Luke wanted to share his hat with his brother.

 Ride'um cowboy!  Hay racing.

 Sitting by the campfire.
 Get the clothes on then race, take them off then race!  Luke won one and Ben won one!

Shooting the cans - Luke hit three out of three.
Outside at our house.

Soccer Games

Alex had his first soccer games of the spring season on Saturday.  He had a game at 10am then another one at Noon.  He did great in both games.  He has improved so much in the last year.  He scored two goals in the first game and one in the second!!  His team, the Wizards, won both games.  The team was so excited since they only won two total games in the fall.

Between the two games we went to the park and had a picnic lunch.   Here are some pictures of the two games and the park - Alex is number 4.  For the second game he was the "Captain" and got to choose which side of the field that his team would start on.

 The start of the second game.

Sorry that the pictures are from so far away.  Will try to get some more at his next game on the 13th. -
