So if you haven't noticed by now I am not the best blogger and I am still learning some of the tricks. Bear with me.
The evening of Easter Grandma and Grandad Owens had an Easter Egg Hunt for all 22 grandkids at their house. It felt like a mob when all the kids were finally released into the backyard to start the hunt. They had a great time. These are some pictures of them hunting eggs and Grandad with all the grandkids.
The Easter bunny came to our house and left baskets outside each of their doors. They had so much fun placing them there the night before they went to bed. Ethan kept saying the "Big Bunny" is going to come. The flashlights inside were a big hit. We have already been through two sets of batteries. They are waterproof so we can't wait to take them night swimming! Yes, for all you that don't live in Arizona. Swim season has begun. We have cousins who spent their Spring Break in the pool swimming. Crazy!

Our story continues with Ethan and his strange sleeping habits. We went in to check on him the other night when we found him asleep this time inside a pillow case. First the underwear, now the pillow case...we can only imagine what is going to be next. Stay tuned...
Each morning Ethan and Pierce love to be carried down the stairs by dad or mom for breakfast. But my most favorite is when Spencer is carrying both boys down the stairs and Ethan says to me, "Two boys, Mommy. It's your two boys." I love it.
I have to say that we have crossed a milestone. Ethan is now understanding that instead of Pierce being an annoying little brother that follows him around doing everything he is that Pierce can be a live-in friend to play with. This week they have finally started playing together. YEAH!!! for me. Now I don't have to be constantly entertaining them and I have two seconds to breath ALONE!
My two boys are also really into hugs. Ethan seems to have trouble remembering that we don't hit others. So we have made it a habit to encourage pats, hugs, high fives and the rock as appropriate things to do. So here is a picture of my two boys giving each other hugs.
