Hannah Grace always loved seeing butterflies... so every time I see one, I think of her and her child-like amazement and curiosity with nature. She loved ladybugs too. I always see lots of butterflies at Silver Dollar City, so I snapped a quick picture.

I also saw a neat wreath at SDC that used some big metal-looking flowers, so I got on a mission to (try) and make one. I'm not very crafty at all, so this was a big undertaking for me. I realized that Hannah had some colorful flowers hanging in her room (the pink and yellow ones on the bottom left side), so I decided to make it a "Hannah" wreath- hence adding the butterflies. It's nothing great, but it makes me smile every time I see it... and we need all the smiles we can get in this life.

After swimming at "Mr. Kebin's", Mr. Kevin's bedroom floor is a good place for a nap, right?

Easter, etc (Wow, I'm so behind)

A lot to catch up on...

Easter morning 

Had a very yucky Easter weekend, weather-wise... so we had lots of Easter egg hunts in the house. As you can see from his face, he looooooved it! 

He had a great time racing for the cure... this was in April, and he will still tell anyone that he "waced por the cure". 

We actually visited E.B. the weekend after Easter (see above note for weather info.)... he had not a stitch of fear- ready to climb right on up there.
