Camping with Grandma and Grandpa Parker

Landon loves to ride his bike around the camp ground.

Grandma and Grandpa bought Landon binoculars just like Diego!

We were blessed to be able to spend a couple of days with Grandma Kathy and Grandpa Larry up in Calaveras County. Kyle was working at Timber Trails raking Pine Needles and Landon and I had the days to spend with Grandma and Grandpa who were camping up at Big Trees State Park. Landon loves camping and had a great time. I enjoyed myself as well, but will not be making anymore camping trips until after these babies are born! I was worn out!

This Saturday we took Landon to the Build-A-Bear Factory in the mall to make Teddy Bears for his twin sisters. It was a fun experience and Landon enjoyed shaking and kissing the hearts to put inside the bears and giving them a bath. He then decided which one was for Olivia and which one was for Valerie. He has since slept with them every night and introduced them to his Teddy Bear that mommy and daddy made for him before he was born!

Easter Morning

We went to the Saturday evening Easter service this year to avoid some of the crowds of Easter morning. It turned out very nice because we were able to just sit around and relax Easter morning. Landon was very excited about his Easter basket and loved that the Easter bunny brought him candy! We had a simple breakfast of colored eggs, muffins and fruit and then headed out to the front yard to see what the Easter bunny hid out there! Landon loved the Easter egg hunt and we actually rehid the eggs and did several that day! It was a great Easter!

Easter Egg Hunt

The Saturday before Easter we took Landon to Fun Works for an Easter Egg hunt. He got to find 7 eggs and had so much fun! It was a beautiful morning and Kyle and I had so much fun watching Landon get so excited when he found an Easter Egg!

Painting Easter Animals

I found these ceramic Easter animals for Landon and he had so much fun painting them to get ready for Easter. He did a great job and they looked great on our Easter breakfast table!
