Patrick, Katie and I went to Omaha for Easter. Emma and James come up from Missouri and Patrick and Shelby now live in Omaha very near to Matthew and Melinda. So we were ALL TOGETHER!!!
It was just wonderful. We had an Easter egg hunt outside and Melinda cooked a delicious dinner! We went to the zoo and Patrick and I nearly died. The children ran circles around one another as we panted and whined and worried about the huge crowds. Actually Patrick did not whine...until we got home. I whine in real time.
We celebrated Emma's birthday out at an air bnb that Emma and James stayed at. River seems most interested in Silas. Babies are funny like that.
It was a beautiful weekend! I taught Asher how to play HORSE and he promptly beat me. We gave Matthews family a corn hole game for Christmas and they pulled that out to play on the driveway!
I look for benches. That is what I was on the hunt for.
We went to the Henry Dorling zoo on Friday. Melinda said she has never seen it so busy.
It was just a gorgeous day!
Cocktails with Katie.
It's a thing.
River enjoyed toddling around with all the activity. She likes to stay close to Emma and James. But we were able to pick her up from time to time. She loves when we sing to her. And she loves to oink!
James with the babies. Silas and River.
Lorelei had tons of fun with her cousins!! She is a sweet, happy girl!
Our four. 2021.
Zeke has his dad's exact cowlick. What a doll he is!!!
Special cake for Emma's birthday! Melinda wondered if she should just have a half a piece, and I stated emphatically, "You deserve to have your own piece of cake."
You can quote me on that.
It's hard to pin this busy gal down!!! Bright, funny Dottie!!
Loves blueberries, does not love to have her face wiped. haha
I took family snaps of each family. I will have something for Christmas cards this year!
I didn't think to get a picture with all the grandchildren until it was too late. So here I am with the first three ;o)
We are so happy you are in the area!!
Hello smiley Silas!!!
Emma and James just celebrated their third wedding anniversary.
In which, I take pictures like a goof.
Happy Siblings Day!!!
Encourage one another,
