Embarrassingly overdue

Hello everyone, I guess it's time to find out whose stuck with us through this long silence. I am sorry it's been so long, and because of that I will start out with our biggest news, that way you can just look at the pictures from here out.

Dan and I are expecting baby number 2 around Dec. 15th. Amusingly, my little sister is also pregnant although she is 2 1/2 months further along than I am. I just hit 12 weeks. I guess I just felt like I needed more of a challenge in my life :). I'm kidding, Dan and I are very excited and we actually did plan this!!!! OK, on to the star of this page.

In the month of April we brought Quinn to see his first performance, for lack of a better term, ever and his first movie (How to train your dragon, which he loved and is obsessed with). We brought Quinn to see Elmo's Green Thumb compliments of my mother. She won the tickets from a radio station. She has to be one of the luckiest people I know with regards to winning stuff. She actually won a car once?!?!

Here is the stage right before the performance.

And my son eagerly awaiting the Sesame street gang, although that's kind of funny because we don't watch sesame street. I think he was just so excited about the experience.


We had some popcorn.

And Quinn's first cotton candy ever (and last for a long time). He loved it, wouldn't stop eating the stuff. Although its pure sugar so why was I surprised.

A picture of the boy, very pleased with himself.

Getting ready to hunt Easter eggs, notice the Toothless Dragon on the floor. I never wanted to be one of those parents that feed into getting their kids merchandising stuff, but since it was his first movie I caved this time. We have Toothless pajamas, a toothless, and a toothless backpack....Sigh, but he loves it.

Let the hunt begin.

He found every single egg.

I was worried he wouldn't find all of the eggs this year and I would forget where I put some, so we used plastic eggs. Next year I think we are going to do hard boiled eggs, that way we get to decorate too.

We also participated in the Ronald McDonald house walk. Definitely a good cause to support.

There was so much to do there other than the walk. People performed, here is Quinn listening one of the children's bands.

They got everyone up dancing. There were also games, relays, and prizes. It looked like a good time was had my all.
One of Quinn's friends from school turned 5 and had he party at a bowling ally. Another first for Quinn. He did really well, he got a score of 47, I think I've gotten scores lower than that as an adult. I probably shouldn't admit that though.

He held the ball, he didn't want anything to do with putting the ball on the ground and pushing it.

Looking good my love.

Although, they didn't all look quite that good. In fact, waiting for some of them to reach the pins got a bit tiring.

But luckily there was food.

and friends, so it's all good.

Finally, we went to my moms school to cheer her kids on at field day. They actually had tattoos and face painting. Very cute.

And of course, Quinn wanted a Toothless dragon. Unfortunately, the girl had never seen the movie and had no idea what Toothless looked like. I told her just to do her best to make a dragon because he wouldn't see it anyway. He was so proud of it, until he got home and saw it in the mirror. I told him I loved it and it looked great. That seemed to fix everything. God I wish it would be this easy to fix things for the rest of his life. Oh well, I'll take advantage for now. OK, thanks everyone for sticking with us and I will update soon now that I'm out of school.

WHOA I am excited to follow this one too. Although Quinn will always have a special place in our hearts. He is getting so big and so cute. I love the dragon facepainting. My son is 22 and what I would give to be able to fix his disappointments so easy again. You are great Parents I can't wait to see all the new updates.

I agree that you should not admit you had such a low bowling score. I am very excited for the three of you to welcome a new little one. Now for Quinn my true love, he is amazing and I can not believe he is old enough to be having all of these experiences. I think he is the most perfect little boy I have ever known.
