egg hunt

Our neighborhood has an annual egg hunt, and this year it finally worked out to go. We took 2 dozen filled plastic eggs over earlier on the week, so we were ready to go. 

There were eggs in the front yards on both sides of the street. It was fun.

There were a ton of people, so we didn't stay long....but long enough to grab eggs and a donut.

Baseball season is here! Kaden is playing machine pitch this year. They've had several practices, and yesterday was opening day. 

He is on the Phillies, and is having a great time.

There hasn't been anything new or super exciting lately, but here's life according to my phone. 

Grandma offered to babysit one night when she was here, so Kyle and I has a real date.

It was loved ones lunch at school, so Grandma came and had lunch with Kaden.

Some of our friends went to the PAC -12 conference basketball tournament in Las Vegas, and brought this sign back for Kaden. He was thrilled. 

My grandparents are in town, and came over for dinner one night.

They also brought a treat straight from the smoker.

We have been sick. Kaden had strep, and the rest of us have had nasty colds.

Bosten has been saving his money and finally had enough for a furby.  He's been playing with it a ton.

2nd grade program

Kaden had his school program this week. It is hard for him to be in loud, crowded spaces (and even more so when the crowd is all looking at him), but he did great. 

We were sad Mimi and Papa couldn't be there, but recorded one of the rehearsals to send them. 

We were so happy that Grandma was able to come. 

Way to go, Kaden!

life, according to my phone

Nothing new or super exciting going on. We've all had the nasty cold/flu-ish stuff that's been going around. 

Here are some random things from lately:

The Amazing Race started. Bosten likes it even more than I do. 

I think we are good on diet coke for awhile. Ha! Target had it super cheap, so I grabbed a couple...

I got my adoption swap package in the mail. It was a fun package.

Bosten couldn't bear to throw away a valentine he made at school until we'd taken a picture. 

Kaden got to try something new at his OT appointment. He loved it.

I got to read with Kaden for an hour at school for the district's read a thon. 

There's been a lot of wrestling going on lately. 

I love/hate canned food sales.

 I have no idea what Bosten got into, but he got a horrible, itchy rash one day.

We've been doing some more painting/changing out/organizing. Sometimes things get worse (as far as a mess goes) before it gets better.

Kaden had a birthday on the 17th. You already know that we did some celebrating early 
(Lego movie, dinner, games). 

There was no school Monday, so we had the whole day to celebrate. He came downstairs to Skylanders decorations (his request....oops, no pictures). 

He was happy and excited to open some gifts.

He is a lucky kid. We hung out and then went to see the Lego movie again...because you know,
it was Awesome. 

We met dad after work and went to Rumbi for dinner. 

Then it was home for cake. We had someone make the Skylanders portal, and it turned out so cool. 

Such a fun day to celebrate our favorite nine year old. 

On Tuesday, they celebrated him at school and we took treats.
