Easter Weekend

Easter Weekend was a fun busy one! We went to the Zoo on Saturday for an Easter egg hunt! It was our first trip to the Zoo and we loved it!! The Flamingo's were pretty, they were bright orange. Sorry the picture doesn't do it justice!

This monkey was so funny! When you would point the camera at it and say "Cheese" it would smile. The monkey liked all the attention. It stays right on the fence and moves to the biggest crowd of people.

We caked Kennedy with 60 SPF sunscreen and kept her in the stroller most of the time. She still got a little tan. Jimmy on the other hand is bright red like a lobster!

We watched the sea lions get fed. Kennedy would clap and shout every time the crowd clapped. It was cute!
There was this big park in the center of the zoo. We stopped and ate lunch there. Afterwards we hid tons of eggs. Kennedy liked her egg that she found.

The only thing she wanted to do was put the egg in her mouth. She didn't even care about the fruit snacks that were in the egg.

I hid the egg really hard. But Kennedy's sharp eye found it with no problem! :)

On Sunday we went over to some friends house for an Easter dinner and another egg hunt. This time finding the egg was a little bit harder for her. She never wanted to look up!

Kennedy enjoying some time in a big Easter basket.

Sunday morning we dressed Kennedy up in her Easter dress. Jimmy's cousins, Mark & Amber Hoopes, were blessing their baby that Sunday so we went. It took us about 1 hour to get there. It was good to see Jimmy's Aunt Myrna and Uncle John.

Kennedy liked her little Easter Bunny.

Grandma & Papa Visit

My Mom & Dad came to visit this week for Spring Break! They spent a couple of days here and we really enjoyed having them. Mom was so excited to realize that Kennedy remembered her! I could tell Kennedy really enjoyed the extra attention. We decided to head up to the top of Sandia Crest and look out over Albuquerque. It was so cold up there and it started to snow. Unfortunately when we got to the top the clouds came it and blocked our view. Every now and then the clouds would part and we could see the city. However the clouds only parted long enough for us to get the camera up to our face. Every time we tried to take a picture the clouds would close in again. After freezing for a little while and not really seeing anything we headed on down the mountain. When we got down we could see that the clouds had moved on and it was perfectly clear on top of the mountain! What a Bug!!! O well I guess that means that we will have to do it again some time.

All in all we had a good time! It was fun having them come and visit! We can't wait to see them again soon.
