Bear With Me..GRR

Hello, it's Brady. I have a lot to update you on and I don't have a lot of time before Mommy and Daddy catch me on the computer. I'm supposed to be in bed but that's lame and who can sleep when they have a lot to tell their fans?? Here it goes...bear with me...I'm going to jump around a lot...ok?....grr.
My friend Luke moved away last week so I had to get one more hug in.  Not awkward at all.

Layla and her (on again)boyfriend Marcus hung out.  I guess they share a common interest in biting things? Infants, I don't get em.

I took Layla to the gym and she was an excellent wing woman.  "Hey ladies, check out my brother!"

"Thanks Layla! Err I'm going to do a flip on the parallel bars since I am of great strength."

"Oh my gosh, he's so amazing!!!" Thanks Layla. I still won't let you play with my trains though, nice try.

Oh and then don't ask.  Layla wanted to be like mommy so daddy let her stuff her shirt.

I know Layla, mommy complains about them too.

Then Mommy and I were coloring one day and we heard the garage door open.
It's Daddy!!! He had a special look in his eye though and I knew we were in for it.  He went back to the bedroom, changed, zipped up his jacket, and whispered: "Brady, get in the car. Zoo time."  Nooooo!
It started out innocent enough.  Layla put on a cute cheetah outfit, we walked around a little and then it happened.  Daddy pulled me aside and said, "Brady. Tigers. Now."

And my worst fear happened.  He unzipped his jacket "his tiger"growled at the real tiger, and then made me take his picture.  Luckily the tiger was asleep, no one was around, and daddy didn't get arrested.

I was able to pull him away and we looked at monkey butts for awhile.

Layla was really into that.
Layla freaked out over some eel.  Not that cool, Layla!

And then mommy suggested we go see the baby lions.  Oh no....those are in the same building as the tigers....oh crap!!!

I saw that look in Daddy's eye again and this time the tiger was awake.  "Daddy, don't do it, don't do it!!"

"Noooooo!!!"  I will spare you the details but we won't be making another zoo trip anytime soon.

The Easter egg hunts were pretty neat. Layla didn't get it. She thought grass was the surprise in the eggs

I told you not to eat it Layla!

I did a chubby cheeks photo shoot for Layla.

She was the perfect model.

I think they're close to swallowing her eyes.

Then we went on a windy bridge and Mommy was having a bad hair day.  Layla at least had the sense to put her hood up.

Daddy and Layla are super jealous of my egg hunting skills.  Stink eyes much? Geez!

Layla brought her spoon with to the last Easter egg hunt. Like a chubby girl.

And then she got mad because she didn't want the "purple eggs". Gah such a girl.

We were sitting there opening our eggs when Layla got a wandering eye...."What's that? I want to go see that."

Oh hell no! That is the creepiest bunny I have ever seen in my life. Get me out of here!!!!!!!

Before I left I gave my neighbor friend Preston a high five*. *Also known as trading out candy we don't like while our parents think we're high-fiving.

And then I climbed on a tire.
Are you still there? If you are congrats on following the Brady photo hunt. You win nothing.  Goodnight everybody!!

Happy Easter!

First off, let me say how thankful I am to have Brian home for another holiday.  I don't take that for granted for one minute! We had a great day.  Layla said her first Easter was pretty fun. Her favorite part was trying to sing along with the choir at church and staring at the lady next to us who had a pretty singing voice.  Here are pictures from our Easter:
Even though Brady is terrified of the Easter Bunny, he still dropped off some goodies for the kiddos

Trying out the Easter hat. Brady's not too sure

He thought he looked pretty good!

Brian and I trying to get a picture in of us.  The wind kept blowing the camera outside

This was after 10 tries at least.  Oh well, maybe next year! ;)

After church we had some friends over for an Easter lunch. It was a great meal with great friends!  After that we had our own little Easter egg hunt, we played outside, and then we went to get ice cream now that my 40 days ice-cream free (Lent induced) is over! Suprisingly it was easier to give up than I had expected.  Hope that everyone had a wonderful Easter!

Easter Egg Hunt Galore!

This year we had 3 Easter egg hunts to attend and it was fun because Brady really had fun with it this year.  Layla enjoyed her first few egg hunts and just had fun playing with the eggs. Here are some pictures from our Easter egg hunts this week:

And he's off!

Easy peasy!

Then at our third Easter egg hunt: the Papillion Easter egg hunt (the city we live in)

Layla decided she understood and was ready to take part

I kept wondering why my pictures were turning out so blurry....I think Mr. Brady the photographer has been putting his grimy fingers on my lens!  After that, much better!

This egg hunt was serious business.  Note the people guarding the eggs. And this was for the 0-2 range.

Layla was ready!

She got some, she got some!

There were so many eggs!


Brady's basket was pretty full
And then it was time for the Easter Bunny. Brady is still deathly afraid so there are no pictures of him within 100 feet of any Easter bunny.

Layla, however, was willing to try it.  "What the heck are you?" 

She wasn't sure. But she didn't cry at least!

Yay for eggs!! It's safe to say we're all egg hunted out. Till next year! :)
