Spring Break and Happy Easter!

Spring Break and Easter just flew by! We had a very enjoyable stay with the Danzes and the Harkins. On Saturday Eli and I drove to Austin early early early so Emily could hopefully sleep the whole way (which she did!). We went to Lake Austin—it was gorgeous day to walk not only because the weather was perfect, but the trees were in bloom and smelled beautiful. From there we went over to the Barton Creek Resort pool to give Emmy her first swimming lesson. To our amazement, she loved the water and was kicking her little legs.

That night Olivia and Marty graciously offered to babysit for us so we could go downtown with Fred and Cliff…and we had a blast! The next day we all met over at the Marty and Olivia’s for Hejjo’s 2nd birthday. Sheri and Chris came in from the rock and it was so nice to visit with them. Felix is growing so strong and looks like he’s almost ready to start crawling. Hejjo is just as sweet and active as can be, and has learned how to say “Emily”! So cute!

On to Bastrop to see the Harkins—the Hyatt built a resort out there called Lost Pines that is so cool. There was a great big slide that flowed into the “lazy river” which circled the pools. The place was great for kids and adults…we had fun playing water volleyball, roasting smores, playing shuffleboard, and rafting down the Colorado. We hung out until Wednesday and then came on back to Dallas for Easter.

UD had a beautiful Good Friday service with the entire passion sung. On Easter Sunday Emily was so quiet in mass…my heart just melted seeing Eli hold her in her Easter bonnet. The Easter Bunny left Emily some goodies, including a scavenger hunt for eggs (filled with bubbles) and some rice cereal which we’re going to try out this week! We had our first “friends” holiday with a Holy Saturday meal at our apartment with David and Nichole and Easter Sunday dinner at the Kanes. So much fun!

Emily surprised us this week by rolling over! And she’s starting to take the pacifier!!! Good job Emily! This will make naps and going to bed so much easier!!!!!
