Going to the beach

I took Bekah to the beach the other day. It was a little cool but so pretty out there. We hung out in a little make shift fort. Bekah loved the sand so much. Here she is looking out at the ocean.

Snacks covered in sand are really yummy. Bekah kept trying to walk with her cracker in her hand. She would fall down and it would get covered in sand. Then she would eat it if mommy didn't feed it to the seagull quick enough.

When we arrived at the beach, Bekah got a foot off the parking lot and was enthralled with the sand. It took some work to get her to the ocean. Once there she picked up handfuls of sand and threw them on the logs and on my jeans too.

Bekah rested on the blanket for 2.57 seconds. Such a busy girl can't be stopped to rest.

So tired out.

My Best Easter Ever

We got a nice family picture after church on Easter Sunday.

My parents came down to visit and had a wonderful time seeing Bekah.

Before we sat down for Easter dinner, we had everyone gather in the living room. I had some big news to share with Bekah. After everyone was quiet I told Bekah that she was going to be a big sister in a little while. Little by little everyone got excited as they realized that I am pregnant. It was great news to be able to share with everyone. This is the picture taken right after I told everyone.

I found out that I was pregnant when we got home from church. I was so excited. I told Chris right away and then everyone else before dinner. Tuesday I went to my OB and got to see my new little baby. The baby looks just like a jelly bean with a heart beat. My doctor said the baby looks around 6 weeks but is too little to measure. That would put me due around the middle of November. Perfect!! In two more weeks I'll get an actual due date. Just wanted to let you all know.

Elyse, Alex and Chase (our tenants) joined us to celebrate Easter.

When we started the Easter egg hunt Bekah had no idea what to do. We told her to go find the eggs. She went over to one of them, picked it up, looked at it, threw it down, and walked away. She did catch on quickly after that though.

Bekah kept trying to pick up the carton with the eggs. She would walk a few steps, then fall and spill the eggs. Nana Laurie helped her pick them up.

Brittany and Jessie

Jessie helped Bekah find lots of Easter eggs.

Here's another one.

Where do I put the egg?

We had lots of family here for Easter. It was fun to celebrate with everyone.

A Little Jedi Knight

The kids were playing stars wars after school. Bekah had Jeremy's underwear on her head. It was so funny watching them run around and play with each other.

Such a Bubbly Personality

Bekah loves to play in the sink. I put some water and bubbles in the sink and she played there for an hour. The kitchen was covered with suds when she was done playing and she was soaking wet.

She knows that the water comes out of here, but can't figure out how to turn it on.

Bekah's Lightsaber

Kevin decided to build each of the kids a lightsaber. He bought the parts and put together the electronics and such. I think he did a great job! At first Bekah really didn't know what to do with hers but as you can see from the video she figures it out pretty quickly.

A Trip to the Park

I learned a good lesson today: Don't take kids to the park after it rains when they have a white outfit on. You can see what happened to this outfit. Bekah kept sitting on the wet muddy grass and scooting around.

Fortunately, the stains came out with some liquid laundry detergent and scrubbing.
