Easter Baskets and Egg Dying

Tristan and his HUGE Mickey Mouse Easter basket and pillow pet!
With all the candy in this basket and from the 4 hunts we went on he has 3 walmart sacks full of candy!

Seth and his basket and pillow pet

Kayden with her basket and HUGE stuffed bunny!

When Tristan dyed eggs he preferred to chunk them into the dye!

So excited to dye the eggs!

Their finished product!

Easter Nest Treats

The other night I was browsing around blog land and I came across the most adorable Easter treats. So I had to make them. They turned out great and were delicious! Here is the link to the blog with the recipe. Next time I think I might use pretzels!

Norman Egg Hunt

Friday night Norman had their egg hunt at Andrew's park. It was fun HOT! Yes the temperature was in the 80's! Tristan found a golden egg and won a chocolate bunny!

Easter at the Sam Noble Museum

I took the boys to the Sam Noble Museum for their Easter egg hunt on Wednesday. Tristan got to see the Easter Bunny and have his picture taken with him. Then he got his face painted and took some pictures with the dinosaurs. The only thing I would change is I wish that the had more eggs for the kids to find because most kids only got 1 egg and some kids didn't get any!

Tristan Paints His Toes and Car Bed!

Tristan got ahold of our car touch up paint and painted his toes and bed BRIGHT blue!
Thank goodness for nail polish remover!!!

Random Outside Pictures

Swinging on the tree swing at Grandma Betty's!

Tristan's cousins Seth and Matt playing baseball!

He said "I pirate mom, RRRRRR"

He loves riding on the tire swing.

Yes Seth taught Tristan how to climb up the slide!

Alec Leslie Turns 1!

Not a happy birthday boy with all that icing on him!

Tristan and Seth loved the cupcakes!
We went back to Arkansas last weekend to see Alec (one of my best friend's April's son) turn one! He is so handsome and is about the same size as Tristan who is over 2 now :)   He had a spongebob square pants birthday and he loved everything except for getting the icing all over him :)

"Eye Hurt"

On January 1st of this year, Tristan sprayed himself in the eyes with some air freshener. Well, ever since then he randomly would grab on of his eyes and say "eye hurt" so we thought maybe he really was hurt. I took him to the eye doctor on April 13th and they dilated his eyes. Of course everything was fine and he has perfect vision! The doctor told me I have a drama kind on my hands LOL! Thank goodness I will take one of those any day over a kid with a bad eye :) He had to wear the "old man" glasses for about 4 hours and he did really good keeping them on!

Shriner's Circus

Back in March we went to the Shriner's Circus when it came to the OKC Fairgrounds! The kids had a ton of fun and Tristan's favorite part was riding the elephants! Of course we saw clowns and yes I thought I might have a panic attack but I did really good :) It was a good time and Tristan can't wait to go back to the the "F- fants"

The kids just had to take a picture with the thing I fear most...CLOWNS!

Aunt Renee bought the kids LOUD guns...Thanks Renee! :)

 There is a GREAT garden/waterfall/pond area in the housing addition next to ours. I mean it's beautiful and I am sure it would make a great backdrop for prom and senior pics! Contact me if you are in Norman, OK and I will direct you to this beautiful place!
Anyways, I decided that Tristan needed some new pics and WALLAH here they are.

I hope you enjoy his cuteness as much as I do!

Last week during spring break we went to the zoo to see the elephants. They had been gone a while and now have a beautiful and spacious new home!
Tristan calls them "ef fants"

Group shot of all the kids (Alyssa, Montana, Kayden, Tristan, Chas, Dylan and Shelle)
The Monkeys were Tristan's favorite part of the zoo. He kept yelling "oo-oo-ah-ah" every time he would get near one. The chimpanzees were is absolute favorite though! He loved watching them swing on their ropes and play with their blankets. I so wish I had taken my video camera that day just so you could hear the excitement in his little voice!
We bought the zoo cup a while ago and when you bring it back to the zoo you get $.50 refills all day! I made the mistake of sitting my coke down in the wagon and he latched onto it and I don't think he came up for a breath! He loved it! LOL
Before we left the kids just had to have some way overpriced dippin dots! Can you see Tristan's tongue? He couldn't get it in there fast enough!

We had a wonderful time at the zoo! It was perfect 65 degree weather and the kids had a great time seeing all the animals...we hope to go back many more times before our zoo membership runs out!
