Horsetooth Reservoir

We had a very beautiful weekend here in Colorado. On Saturday we took full advantage of the weather and went exploring. We ended up going to Horsetooth Reservoir, which was a very short drive from our house. Magnolia had a blast throwing rocks into the water and getting all muddy. There are huge boats that go on this lake so it was fun to see all of those. If we were big into camping I would definitely want to spend a night at one of the camp sites! The scenery picture that I am posting does not do this place justice, but at least you get a little glimpse. We also tried to get a picture of my baby bump!

Future Big Sister!

Magnolia is very excited to tell everyone that she is going to be a big sister! I am currently 21 weeks along and we are expecting our new little peanut to arrive at the end of August! We are so VERY excited!!! Magnolia already loves this little baby more than words can describe. She rubs my tummy, gives it lots of kisses and loves to talk to the baby. She is at such a fantastic age to have another baby! Each week we talk about how big the baby is and compare it to a fruit (this week it is the size of a large carrot). The drawing is one that Magnolia did of her and the baby playing soccer. How cute is that?!?! Such exciting times in this household!

Here are the rest of the pictures from Easter. For some reason I was not able to load these onto the blog until now. We had a lovely day. Scott, Heidi and Will came up for lunch. Magnolia and Will had an Easter egg hunt in the backyard. Magnolia had so much fun finding eggs that we had several more later in the day with empty eggs. It was a very beautiful and relaxing day!

Coloring Eggs

The 3 of us colored some Easter eggs on Saturday after the egg hunt. I should rephrase that... David and Magnolia colored eggs while I took pictures. I dropped a bowl of dye all over the wood floor last year so I stayed clear of the dye this year. Magnolia did not spill a drop so it looks like like she will get to do it again next year!

Easter Egg hunt

We took Magnolia to an Easter Egg hunt at a toy store in Boulder on Saturday. She had a blast and got more than her fair share of eggs. She even got to get her picture taken with the Easter bunny.

Grammy and Pappa

David's parents rented a house out here for the month of March and took Magnolia on many adventures. They went to museums, parks, the zoo, swimming and many other fun things. Magnolia also learned to eat lots of green vegetables so that money grew in her ears. Thank goodness only pappa has the magic to pull the money out or I think we would need to take out a loan to eat with our child! :) The past 9 days have been an interesting adjustment for Magnolia back into the world of only having mommy and daddy around and hearing the word "no"!
