Biomes Fun!

We love Biomes. There are always fun games, crafts and sealife to see and learn about.  During this visit, the girls learned about puffer fish and how they inflate and squirt people if they feel threatened! 

Biomes has such big open spaces and lots to do. The girls are never bored when we go! Thanks Gigi for stopping to play.

Hug Time with Daddy

Hug time with daddy is the best...
But kiss time is fun too! We love you Victor.

The Dentist

The girls had their last checkup with Dr. Gazzola in North Kingstown. Of course, their teeth looked great. 

Audrey is getting to be such a big girl. She doesn't need to sit on my lap anymore during her appointments. 
Sierra has two of her 6 year molars in already and should have two more coming in soon. 

Cuddles Before Bed

With Gigi sleeping in Audrey's room, we pulled out our inflatable mattress for Audrey in Sierra's room. I read bedtime stories with both girls cuddling with me. I was in heaven!  Good night to all.

Welcome Gigi!

Gigi arrived today to spend the week with us while the girls are on spring break. 

We are looking forward to lots of fun and laughter over the next several days. 

Today was a cold and rainy Monday, so we stayed indoors painting and playing dolls. Stay tuned for more stories in the days to come!  We are so happy to have you here! Thanks for making the trip.

Wednesday at the park!

Today was such a beautiful, sunny afternoon, Victor took the girls to Wilson's Park. They slid, ran, swung and laughed for hours with the other kids. 
What a wonderful afternoon!
Thanks dad!
We are sooooo happy Spring has finally arrived!!!

Sunday school Easter egg hunt...

In church this past Sunday, after being excused from the children's sermon, the fun began. We knew we were going to have a belated Easter egg hunt, but we were pleasantly surprised by the 3rd through 5th grade presentation of the last supper and other turning points in Jesus' life!

The kids were dressed in costumes and set up props to illustrate scenes from palm Sunday, how Judas betrayed Jesus, the experience of the last supper, Jesus' symbolic death and rising from the tomb. 

For the supper, the kids even served us all samples of the foods they are like raisins, dates, horseradish, salt, lettuce, pita bread, grapes and grape "wine" and explained the reasons behind the foods.  It was a glorious learning experience. 

After the play, they read "The Tale of the Three Trees," which was a beautiful expression of how God's gifts work in our lives! It was beautifully told and written... Enough to bring tears to my eyes during the reading!

I highly recommend it for any book collection!

After all the dramatic storytelling, it was time for the Easter egg hunt. Sierra and Audrey went first and got to find 6 eggs each! Sierra found a golden Easter bunny egg with extra goodies inside. Both girls were most excited about finding pennies inside some of their eggs! 

Learning how eggs represent "new birth" was a fun learning experience for both girls!

Happy Easter to all!

Our big day...

Today was a full day. Not only did Sierra have her rock climbing event. Afterwards, a friend of hers from karate, Kimmy, stopped by for a play date! 

Then at 2pm, we headed out to Michele's house to visit with Annabel and kylee.

The gathering at Michele's turned out to be a pretty cool event. Talking, roasting marshmallows, pulling trees down with a wench, building a fire! Tons-o-fun!

Sierra's rock climbing adventure!

Today was sierras first day of class at the rock climbing gym. She loved learning how to hook up and climb as high as she could go. She climbed higher than I've fever seen her go! Nice job Sierra!



End of Lent...

Lent is the season of penance and prayer before Easter.  At St. Paul's church, on the first Sunday after Ash Wednesday the entire Sunday school group was photographed in front of the parish hall where an arc entrance was built.  Notice Sierra kneeling on the front row with a sheep.

Holy Saturday was last week on the 4th, however, this Sunday St. Paul's is having their Easter Egg hunt!  We are excited to continue celebrating the joy of the season, and eating a little more candy.

Happy Easter Everyone!

This morning Sierra worke up at 6:30a ready to make Easter eggs...So we did!
Having boiled them the night before? Our eggs were ready for some flair. They took turns dipping and were even inspired to make artwork from the color drippings! 
Then at 9:00am we put on our best Easter outfits and went to church!
Our neighbor's, the Cushman's surprised the girls with the announcement that the Easter Bunny made a mistake and left eggs hidden all over their back yard!  So the girls rushed over to find them!
It was so much fun!
...with a wonderful view of the wickford harbor.
Happy Easter everyone!

Ladybug & Butterfly Headbands!

Gigi sent the girls the cutest spring gift package with two cute headbands, seeds, hair ties and pencils! What a fun surprise!  Thanks Gigi! We love you
