Last summer one of our neighbors sold us their little John Deere Gator for $15! What a deal! Last year she was still to small for it and couldn't reach the peddles. She can now reach the peddles but is having some trouble remembering to keep her foot on the gas and steer at the same time. I painted it a purpley blue color and added the flower decals I ordered on line. I cleaned it really good with 409 and used the Krylon spray paint for plastic. We'll see how well it holds up to kids jumping around on it.

Left the seats yellow because I thought they might not hold up to new paint. I ended up using lots of blue tape and plastic bags to tape areas off that I didn't want painted purple.

Last night was our neighborhood easter egg hunt. It was originally scheduled for this evening but rain was in the forecast.

All the kids on our street. There are a lot!

All the little ones under age four searched for eggs in our yard.

Violet did much better this year getting around. This time last year she was still not walking.


I posted the real pic of this last year. But here it is again. Chris did not like this bunny.
Happy Easter!

Yesterday was purple day at school. Violet was the coolest in her Batman tshirt.

Addi and Gillian got a new swing set so we played on it last night. At one point all the girls were sitting at the table, but I wasn't quick enough with the camera.

Jedi in training or jousting?

Chris came home yesterday from the Comic-Con with a lightsaber for Violet. Now let's see how long it takes before she's chasing after the dogs with it.
