Parker & Drew Bear

Yesterday Kelli and I took the boys to lake Fayetteville to try to get some pictures. A few miles and 45 pictures later, we got several good shots. These little guys are fast!

I really enjoy Easter. I attempt to make my life a celebration of God and His goodness, but I fail daily. Easter is a great time to really think about what Christ did for us. It's fun to eat candy, hunt eggs, and get together with friends and family. But it's really about Jesus dying for us so that we would be forgiven. Amazing. Now that I have a son, I can't even fathom it. What an awesome God.

This year, Parker was really interested in hunting eggs. He was more interested in eating what was inside of the eggs. He had so much fun! It took him a while to learn the word egg (he kept calling them balls), but he finally got it. We had a great time celebrating with our family and friends. Parker woke up to an Easter basket, which he really enjoyed. We then went to Uncle Gaylord's with my parents and Jason & Cindy to eat blueberry pancakes. Jason & Cindy had a little surprise of their own.....They're pregnant!!!! We are soooo excited. Parker has always wanted a cousin! After breakfast, we went to church (kids were in the service). I had spent an hour preparing exciting activities to keep Parker quiet, and I only had to break out the Diego fruit snacks and a book. He said Jaime's name about 10 times (she sat in front of us), but other than that, he did awesome!! He actually fell asleep during worship. I had two different people ask me if I had given him Bennadryl. I have to give credit to God, because it was a miracle! After a very short nap, Parker hunted eggs at our house. We went to the Davis's for dinner and more egg hunting. I'm still full from all the food that was consumed!

I have to give many, many props to my dad for building this custom sandbox for Parker. It has Parker's initials on it and a Razorback! I feel like I have a mini beach in my backyard! Parker loves to dig in the sand, but doesn't especially like the sand on his feet. I'm sure he'll warm up to it! Thanks so much Pop!

Mr. Monkey

Thanks to Gigi for this fabulous shirt! Notice the fauxhawk on the monkey. On Parker's really good hair days, he has a fauxhawk. On the back of the shirt (top left corner) there is a can of hairwax. How perfect!
