Spring Time Fun!

Here is just a little bit of what we've been up to these last few weeks... as we try and enjoy our last few weeks here in beautiful Kentucky!

In no particular order...

We went camping with the kiddos for the first time this last weekend with some good friends of ours. We went down to Taylorsville Lake and stayed at the campgrounds there which were beautiful!
I'd say it was a success, although next time we will bring a blow up mattress and I won't be sharing my sleeping bag with my 7 1/2 month girly. :)
We made yummy tin foil dinners and had deliciously gooey, messy smores, stayed up late talking with good friends and left just in time to miss the rain.
Lydia LOVED camping and we will definintly be doing more in the near future!

As a belated Anniversary Date for me and my handsome hunk of a husband we got tickets to go see BLUE MAN GROUP at the Kentucky Center!
It was super fun and the show was AMAZING! We had never seen them in person before and they were hilarious as well as extremely talented and entertaining. I love how after any date that we come home from ( like perhaps once a month if we are lucky...) we always say to ourselves... "Man that was fun...sigh...we should do that more often..."
I love going on dates and spending one on one time with my hubbs. Hopefully in the near future we will be able to do more fun date nights. :)

We found this awesome red beaded limo parked on the street of downtown Louisville... Cool!
Eggs, Eggs and Ha Hogs! (Hot Dogs...)
Lydia has loved all of the Easter festivities such as egg hunts, Easter parades, candy eating, park going and BBQ's with friends that April brings. We had so much fun getting together with friends and having our own egg hunts and it was also more fun for us to watch lydia actually be able to find eggs this year. I think after she figured out there was candy inside...she was more than willing to fill her basket full of eggs. :)

A lot of us girls in the ward have just had cute baby girls around the same time and so we decided to get a picture of all the lovely ladies. I would try and name them all in order although I would probably butcher a few of them, so to keep things fair I will just leave it alone. But aren't they all so adorable. And I love how Emree is the Largest one out of all these cuties. That's my girl!
Another Egg Hunt!

Easter Parade!

I know some of you may be thinking to yourselves, "Self? Where are the matching Easter Dress Pictures?" Well...they will be coming soon..I promise!
We did a few other fun things over Spring Break and had a wonderful time enjoying each other's company. I just love my family!


  1. Your Girls are DARLING!!!!! It looks like a fun couple of weeks!!! I can't believe how much Lydia looks like McCall!!!!

  2. Oh my gosh Emree has grown up so much!! I can't believe it. Looking at these I got super excited to see you guys. Only a couple more weeks right? Also Lydia looks Jaedynesque in that first picture. If that makes sense. Fun that you got to go see Blue man perform. I bet that would've been great.

  3. I can't believe how Emree is getting so big AND she is SO dang cute!! Thats awesome you got to see the Blue man group! I've never seen them but would love to! Easter is so fun especially for little kids and when they find out there is candy in the eggs haha. Cute can't wait to see you guys!

  4. Oh. My. Cuteness! Those little girls should be the next Gerber babies!! Too adorable!

  5. Emree looks so much like Shelbs when she was little. Lydia looked like Shae and now looks like McCall so we'll see if that happens to Emree. Emree also looks alot like JD. They are both such beautiful girls.I love seeing all the pictures and hearing about the activities of egg hunts. Brings back memories. I'm glad you guys get out at least once a month together.I've heard the Blue man group is really cool.The camping looked fun. It never was with us but we did love love love the mountains until night time.

  6. Looks like they got their fill of Easter. and Shelby, for all the times you've been to Vegas, I'm surprised you never saw the Blue Man Group.

  7. Look at you guys going camping, how fun is that, and just with the looks of that smore I bet it was pretty messy sight to see. Emree is gettin so big and I just love her cute outfit and bow.

  8. Whoa! Youa re brave to go camping. It looked like a lot of fun... especially they smores!

  9. I spy with my little eye something I gave you guys for Christmas. I'm glad you are using it. I miss camping we should go when you guys get here. -Parker
