More fun with grandparents...and embarrassing pictures!

Grandpa and Grandma Anderson came to hang out for a few days in early March.  

And gave Addison her birthday present...









Giggle time with Grandma!!!







These girls had us rolling on the ground laughing.  They came out and "struck a pose."  Brylee was absolutely hysterical trying to copy Addison.  I'll apologize to her later for posting these pictures.

Almost Spring...but still winter days

At the end of February and beginning of March, we suddenly had a lot of snow!  We took full advantage of the snow...sledding, snowmen, and shoveling!













Bottom sliding...
Belly sliding!

Grandma and Grandpa Anderson came in just before the huge snow. 



Woohoo....Daddy got a snow day!!!!  No school! 
Grandpa is pretty amazing at perfecting a snowman...complete with custom made pieces!
Shoulder rides from Mr. Snowman!

Thanks, Grandpa for the help. ;)
High five!

Addison's 4th Birthday Fun

Oh my...almost gave up on the blog, but will try to do catch up again.  Picture overloads...as few words as possible!  

For Addison's 4th birthday we took her to a fun indoor water park about an hour from our house.  It was SO much fun.  The girls had an absolute blast and became little fishes in the water!  

Sporty Addie in her new outfit.

Who's excited to go swimming?!?!?!
All by herself!

Didn't mind going under at all!
Addie got more and more confident during our couple days there.

Happy birthday girl!
She was big enough to do the big tunnel slides with Daddy!



4 fingers!
"You wait there.  I can do it."  And off she went through the water maze.  Love seeing the independence and confidence develop more and more!
She did all the big slides by herself...no fear!  yeah!

A total gift...she fell asleep on me part-way through the day, as she is used to getting her nap.  The water was clearly exhausting!  It was extra special as I realized that she was asleep at the exact time she was born, 4 year prior!
We had a little party when we got home with Grandpa and Grandma Painter.

Strawberry/pink cake...by request.



Goofy hat time with Grandpa!
A lucky girl to have such amazing grandparents!
