Easter Weekend and our excited little girl

Easter Sunday we had Cailyn's BFF come over for an egg hunt and a ladies lunch.   These two are beyond adorable together.  The excitement to spend time together away from school and the love they have for each other is over the top!  Before Lily arrived the Easter Bunny was able to hide many eggs out in our yard for the girls to find.  And, in typical girl fashion, crowns were adorned for the outdoor hunt! 

Cuteness beyond measure! BFF's!

Hard to find eggs with these dang crowns!


The race is on!


Looking for eggs..

Ladies Lunch!

On Easter Saturday we went to a local Easter fair. With much hesitation and very deep thought, Cailyn worked her way through the emotions and rationalization of going on rides.  The first one was a mild jeep ride and the second was a roller coaster.  As I watched her on the roller coaster my heart pounded in complete and utter fear! Looking back on this I was crazy to let her go on this ride as it had a simple rope and two dog clips to hold her in...cheesy carnie ride.  Anywho, she enjoyed it an over came a fear. Cailyn is not the kind of kid who just does things - she thinks through it, understands the consequences and makes the decision based on what feels right at that moment.  Most kids just do it, not our Cailyn. 
Recently we took Cailyn to the new house for a visit.  We want to ease her into the idea that she will be in a new house soon.  The cool thing is that the room that will be hers is already painted pink and this kick started her over whelming joy with the new house.  Once she saw the inside, we headed out to the back yard and showed her that the big fence opens up to an amazing wonderland called a park!  She was overjoyed and beyond excited!  The current home owner, single woman going through a life changing moment - quit work, sold her house, bought a new house in the north and will have an online chocolate shop - bought Cailyn two dolls in anticipation of our visit.  Cailyn felt right at home as the home owner let Cailyn play with anything and everything in the house.  We measured a few windows and after one hour departed.  That night after a story, Cailyn put her tiny palms on my face and said "Mommy, no more story, lets talk about the house...its AMAZING!  Did you see my room, its pink, and there's a park, its AMAZING , I love it!!, I want to see the house video, get it on the ipad please"  This convo went on for almost 40 minutes when I finally told her night night. A couple hours later she awoke to talk about the house.  She its pumped to move and talks about the house a lot.  We hope that come day one in the new house, she feels the same excitement.  
Cailyn is excited to have three candles on her cake at the new house, with a Monster Inc themed party including a Princess Bouncy Castle and all her friends. It is had to believe that in three months, Cailyn will be 3!
Now that the weather is nice, our house is cleaner as we spend most of our free time outside.
