monkeying around

This week we went to the zoo for playgroup. It was Leah (and Brinley and Avery), Ashli (and Nathan and Carter) and Angie (and Kelly and McKenna) and us. We had a great time. The weather was perfect - about 50 degrees and sunny. The only downer was that it was spring break so it was a little more crowded than usual for this time of year. But we still had fun! The animals were in rare form - and we caught some of the monkeying around on tape!

Easter Morning and Easter Supper

This morning started off great! The kids came down, excited to see what the Easter bunny left for them! They LOVED the easter egg hunt and Gavin helped Evelyn find her basket that the bunny hid for her (after he found his, of course). I posted some pics from "the hunt". Also - for all those Stoneboro Easter fans - I added a clip movie from Gavin saying...

"Thank you Easter Bunny"!

The rest of the day (after the whole York Peppermint Patties deal - see below post) was sort of yucky. Gavin was on the potty until 2 and then slept from 3-5. We woke him up to join our friends/neighbors for Easter Supper. Gavin was in a bummer mood until he got some grub in his belly...just like his daddy gets.

We had a delicious meal and enjoyed pretending not to miss home/family too much. Actually, I didn't really even think about it until after dinner was done...we were having a great time! Jessica and Hannah came by too which was so nice. And Angie (and gang) have a med student, Larry, who also joined us. So we had a big person table and a kiddie table to accommodate us all. We ate honey baked ham, sweet potato casserole, super yummy scalloped potatoes with corn flake topping, green bean casserole, bread and lots of desserts! I was (still am) so stuffed! Check out some of our cute pics with our favorite is Gavin hugging the girls (McKenna is licking his face!). I also love the ghost apparition crotch shot of Patrick (you know you all looked anyway!)

Thanks to Angie for hosting us - we are so fortunate to have friends like you!

Stupid York Peppermint Patties!

Yeah - they have egg whites in them. Not listed under allergy information - but they are in the ingredients (which I hardly ever read any more because it is REQUIRED to list them under allergy information). Oh well - I feel awful. I guess I can blame it on the Easter Bunny!

After the benadryl kicked in to keep his face from swelling even more, he had a horrible bout of diarrhea. Every 2 minutes it was back into the potty to pee out of his little 'ole butt. Poor kid. I have been feeling so guilty about it all morning. The pooh has slowed down - but he is still pretty miserable...
