Our Trip to Spokane

On Monday, we went to Spokane to see Uncle Frank and Aunt Wanda and get in some much needed clothes shopping for the kids. Do kids ever stop growing? Man, they are expensive!! While we were in Spokane, we decided to go to the mall and see the Easter bunny. I talked to Cooper before hand and asked him if he wanted to see the Easter bunny and he said yes. So, when we got there and he actually saw the Easter bunny, he kind of looked a little scared. I wasn't sure if we were going to be able to get a picture or not. Cooper hasn't been scared of the Easter bunny or Santa Claus yet, so I was still a tiny bit hopefull. So, when it was our turn, Cooper went up and sat beside the Easter bunny and I put Sara on the Easter bunny's lap. Now the hard part began, trying to get them both to look at the camera at the same time and with a somewhat of a smile on their face. We were able to get a decent picture, but unfortunately no real smiles. So, then we were off to Deer Park to see Uncle Frank and Aunt Wanda. What we didn't realize was Saturday was Renee's birthday. But, since she had been sick they were not able to celebrate. Therefore, they were having her birthday party on Monday evening and we got to be there for it. We had a great time visiting with Uncle Frank, Aunt Wanda, Renee, Cheri, Greg, and Renee's son and his wife. The last time we saw them was at Jeff and Lili's wedding so they had not met Sara yet. Anyways, we had a great time visiting with them and are already talking about when we should go up there again. (When it is warmer of course.) After we left Deer Park, we went to one of my favorite stores, Babies R Us! I could just spend hours in there looking at everything and wanting to buy all the cool toys and clothes. We did buy the kids some clothes and I am just hoping that they don't out grow them all before we go to Florida in June. So, if anyone has a secret on how to get your kids to stop growing, could you please let me know?

Wow, that bunny is HUGE. I wouldn't blame him if he was nervous! :) Yeah, no advice on the no growning thing...good luck with that!

Isn't it amazing how they grow so quickly?! One night they are wearing a size and the next morning, that size is too small! It's crazy!

I don't know the secret to keep kids from growing, either....but if you ever find out, please let me know!! Part of me wants my children to hurry up and be more independent but the other part of me wants to freeze time and keep them tiny. Ah, well...such is parenthood! I love Babies 'R" Us, too....good thing ours is kinda far away, otherwise I might be spending a lot more money! You have a beautiful family - so happy for you!!
