Trike-A-Thon at Sarasota Baptist 2013

Avery's preschool held their annual Trike-A-Thon last week.  The purpose is to raise as many donated diapers as possible for those in need.  The kids get to ride laps upon laps in the parking lot.  It truly is a fun event to watch and the kids really enjoyed it. I think what they REALLY enjoy are the popsicles afterwards.  We were super proud of Avery for all the laps he completed especially having been sick and layed up for 3 days.

Avery Alexander turns FIVE!!!

Somehow, our little man is growing up in front of our very own eyes!!! He turned five on April 10.  He was SOOO excited about his birthday.  His actually birthday was on a Wednesday, but then he had his party to look forward to whih was on Friday.  Unfortunately, Triple A was miserably ill on the 3 days leading up to his birthday, so when he woke up a bit more spunky we were all JUMPING FOR JOY!!! Happy Birthday A-train. 

Up and at 'em bright and early.  Ready to open gfts and have birthday doughnuts!!!

And.....After church we ventured to ANOTHER Egg Hunt

After our Church service we headed to our 5th....yes 5th....Egg Hunt of the season.  We headed to our Florida Family's house for the last of the hunts and to enjoy a tasty brunch.




The Easter Bunny Found Us!!!

Easter Morning at home!!!! The Easter Bunny found us and left baskets of goodies for the boys.  We were excited to wake up, see what the rabbit brought, snuggle over cartoons and coffee....and wait and wait and wait for it to get light outside so we could find the eggs that Peter Cotton tail had hidden in our back yard. Yes, we woke early enough (yawn, wipe sleep from eyes) that it wasn't even light out yet. 

Landon says "all done" going back in now.
Avery was a PROFESSIONAL egg hunter by now.  He was on a mission.
Landon leaves his bucket behind while Avery still searches.
Big brother supervises little brother while he slowly rummages through his basket.
Our little bunnies.....all warm in their jammies.
Breakfast anyone?  Avery indulges in Cinnamon Toast Crunch regardless of the basket of chocolate.

Right after the Easter egg hunt at church we headed to the church next door where we got to take part in ANOTHER egg hunt.  However, this church went ALL OUT.  They had a marshmellow drop from not ONE, but TWO helicopters, catch the cow games inside the church, cotton candy, bounce houses and of course....TONS of eggs to gather.


Hands in the air kids, time to catch the cows.
