"I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. What I can do, I should do. And what I should do, by the grace of God, I will do." -Edward Everett Hale

Flashback Friday

This morning, thanks to Facebook, I was reminded of a seven year old memory, 

So cute, so sweet, so little.

Then later on, I had to pause as I passed by a familiar scene...

Other than the mode of entertainment, not much has changed.

Still cute, still sweet, just a little bigger.

Children's Garden Getaway

With the threat of finishing spring break in the snow, we took advantage of a beautiful Friday and walked to the Children's Garden. It takes no effort whatsoever to spend hours in this little corner of the Arboretum. A whole day could be spent in the creek alone, and then there's the dirt, and the train, and... 

Aren't we glad it's practically in our backyard.

Meet the Lorax!

Today we headed downtown to everyone's favorite library for a special event to "Meet the Lorax!"

Getting up close and personal was a little scary for one, and a little "babyish" for others, but Lila and Easton were good sports. And when it came time for arts and crafts, everyone was all in...

Except for Levi, who quickly made his way to the computer station after listening to the book. 

But at least we knew where to find him.

Jump, Jump, Jump Around!

After spending a few days with Bobo and Bebe, we made our way back to Lexington.

But first, a stop at Get Air was in order...

Everyone loves the trampoline parks. Levi has been to three birthday parties recently at SkyZone, but he still can't seem to get enough. Both parks have their advantages, but I love the little kid area at Get Air. Especially since we have some "big" kids that look like "little" kids, so they can watch out for Declan and it all feels a little safer. SkyZone has a jumping area designated for little kids, but the foam pits are free for all. At Get Air, there's a jumping area and foam pit for the little ones. Get Air also has a variety of climbing walls and ropes for an additional challenge. 

However, the disadvantage to both parks is the limited jump time. 

But all good things must come to an end.

Thankfully, that doesn't include spring break...just yet.

Our Epic Easter Weekend

With empty baskets and hopeful hearts, we started off our Easter weekend with a Saturday egg hunt at BoBo and BeBe's house... 

And as usual, it did not disappoint...

On Sunday morning we celebrated the truth that Jesus is Alive!

We enjoyed a youth production at the beginning of the service, with the additional surprise of Piper being asked to fill in as an angel...

Then we were off to Bowling Green for an afternoon of food and family, and of course, another egg hunt...

Finally, we made our way back to BoBo and BeBe's house to spend a couple of more days. Because after all, spring break was just getting started.

"Snow" More!

It's not every Monday in March that we awake to a winter wonderland (thank goodness)...

However, we tried to make the best of, yet, another snow day. 

And as the temperature quickly rose, it was the perfect time to play, build a snowman...

And climb a frozen tree? 

It wasn't Easton's best decision of the day. I think this winter weather is starting to get to all of us.

Come quickly, Spring.
