My Prego Belly

A friend and I were heading to the park the other day and she mentioned she needed to take some pictures of a pregnant Mama for a church assignment and she wondered if I would be her victim.  I was a little hesitant but agreed.  She took a few shots while we were at the park.    I was pleasantly surprised with the results.  Not that I questioned my friends talent, but that I wasn't sure I was going to be excited about pictures of my pregnant belly.  I haven't been as diligent about taking photos this pregnancy so I am happy to have these.  Here are the rest of the photos.

Easter Egg hunt

We went to a pancake breakfast and Easter egg hunt with Ellie's cousins on Saturday.  The hunt went so quickly we didn't even get a clear shot of Ellie until after it was all over.  This is the best we got before the battery died.  But she had a fun time hunting for eggs and eating candy at 9 am.  She was happy to see her cousins again. They had been out of town for a week visiting family and Ellie continually questioned me as to when they were going to return. I think she feared they were never coming back!  

Her hair...

So the other day I got out of the shower to realize Ellie had been busily working on her hair for some time.  This is what she had come up with.  She is rather particular about what gets done with her hair these days. Haircuts are out.  Growing her hair out to match the picture with the pretty long curls is in.  "Bows are for babies."  Hair clips are a maybe.  "The headband with the pretty things on it (jewels)" are a sure bet yes.  Any other headband is definitely not ok.  

Seattle Children's Museum

On the last day of spring break our friends invited us to head to the Seattle Children's Museum with them.  We hadn't been in a couple of years and were excited to try it out once again now that Ellie is a little bit older.  She loved it!

Curious George was the traveling exhibit at the museum right now and Ellie couldn't have been happier.

Bouncy Extravaganza

Last week was spring break.  In the beginning of the week when it was a surprisingly sunny and warm we went to the park, the park and then the park some more (living in Seattle.. when the sun is outside... so are you!).  But later on during the week when the weather changed we headed indoors for some fun.  The Seattle Center had their annual Bouncy Extravangza.  Ellie and her friends had a great time jumping, bouncing and sliding the afternoon away!

Easter Eggs

Last weekend Ellie had sleepover at Grandma & Grandpa's house. One of the many activities they did while together was decorate Easter eggs!  

Ellie was so excited to tell me all about the colors they created for the eggs.  Most importantly pink and purple.. her favorites:)
Oh my! :)

The finished product!

Thanks for the pictures Judi!  And for the great weekend :)  
Brandon and I had a fun weekend and Ellie obviously had a great time at your house!
