Easter Weekend 2014.

The girls love spending the weekend at Grammy & Bumpa's house... Bunk beds, showers in the giant shower, all their favorite foods, tons of toys, and dogs everywhere...

Sweet Holly.
Crazy Poppins.

New puppies at Project2Heal.

Mommy got them when they were all riled up.
Daddy prefers his piles of puppies to be sleepy.

Plus, for an extra special treat, we got all dressed up and went to church.
But we have the most fun when we're being silly.
Happy Easter!

Spring Break oh-Fourteen!

It was a low-key time this year. But there were sleepovers.
And a day at M*rbles, with arial acrobats.

And a trip to the bookstore, for books AND cookies.
And we all had a really nice time.

My cheering squad.

Mommy has spent the last five weekends at the yoga studio, training like a madwoman to become a yoga instructor. It's been amazing and fun and I've learned so much. But none of it would have been possible without my incredibly supportive cheering squad. Daddy and the girls have done all kinds of fun stuff while I've been gone from Friday afternoon until Sunday evening. And they have helped me and encouraged me every day, including practicing my class with me over and over again.

On the last day of training, they met me for a picnic lunch to wish me good luck before I taught my first ever class.
And when I arrived home I found this:

And these:

And they even took me out to dinner! These three people are amazing, and I love them so much and I don't know where I would be without them!

Becoming eight.

Oh my goodness, there's an eight-year-old in this house!
 Auntie sent Lily the world's greatest gift and the thing she wanted most, an American Girl Doll.
 There was MUCH excitement, squealing and jumping when Lily realized what was in the box.
A girl and her new best friend.
Lily decided that instead of a party or a present from us, she wanted to go skiing. So we all got to spend a weekend in the mountains! (Best idea ever, LilyBug!) We kicked things off by meeting Grammy and Bumpa in Boone for a birthday dinner.

Happy birthday, Dear Lily!
 (From a sweet little cabin in the mountains!)
We spent a whole day skiing!

The birthday girl had at least as much fun as she did in Austria. And she even skied a black diamond with Bumpa!
Happy, happy birthday to our favorite eight-year-old!!!
