Spring Break Flowers

The kids helped me pick out and plant flowers today. I think they made some beautiful choices!
We started with the front flower beds... Cade selected the red with light green leaves & Hudson picked red with dark red leaves...
Hudson's choice for the back porch flower pots...
 Cade's choice for the back porch flower pots... yellow = his favorite color :)
 Thanks, guys, for your help!! I loved doing this together!

Spring Break Fishing

Today, the boys had their "dream Spring Break day" - fishing with Daddy! The fish were really biting today, and they had an absolute blast! Hudson's comment at the end of the day was, "This is the BEST day EVER!!"
This isn't a great picture of Hudson, but I love that you can see Cade fishing in the background :)
Thanks, Dad!

Spring Break Zoo Trip

The kids always love a visit to the zoo! Cade has been asking for months to go back :). Well, it's finally spring break, and all 5 are us are heading to the zoo to see our "old favorites", and to check out some new exhibits, too!
"Cat Country" = our first stop. The new lion and one of the new lionesses was out. Cade was super excited! Here is a picture of one of the beautiful tigers...
 A "regular" jaguar, and a black jaguar...
 The 3 cutest kiddos I know!
 Inside the new dinosaur exhibit...
The T-Rex and Triceratops were very realistic! The T-Rex had "blood" on his teeth and claws from the "attack", and you could see the Triceratops' movement still breathing... cool!
 The grizzly bears have been in the pool playing - up close & personal :) - the last few times we've been. This is always a favorite stop...
 The camel rides are new, too... very neat!
 Hudson (7), Cade (5), Callie (2), Mommy
 "Daddy's Little Sunshine" wouldn't look at the camera for a picture :)
 The sea lions are a must-see each time we visit...
 One of the eagles was in the pool taking a bath!

Sesame Street Live!

This evening, we went to see "Sesame Street LIVE" in Memphis. Not everyone's pick of shows, but free tickets we couldn't pass up :). Hudson enjoyed the show as much as a 7-year-old can. Cade liked some parts, but not all. Little Miss Callie Jewel, though, couldn't take her eyes off the stage even long enough for a picture! This was definitely for her :). A good family evening out, nonetheless :)...

Cade's Trike-a-thon

Here's Cade... our trike-a-thon"er" at TCA's 2nd annual St. Jude Trike-a-Thon in honor of Lucy. Once again, the kids came out in full force and had a blast! The school ended up raising over 20 THOUSAND dollars!! Woah!! Not bad for a PK3-3rd grade school :)
It was a cool day, but nothing could slow down our Cade-o! 
 He's so careful out there riding with all the other kids. I am so proud of him!
Cade rode for 50 minutes of the allotted one hour time frame. Wow!
 Callie and I cheered him on the entire time! Go Cade Go!
 Close to the end, and I finally got a smile out of him!! :)

Pre-k Graduation Picture Day

Cade is having his preschool graduation picture made today. We're so excited! He's wearing the same shirt and tie that Hudson wore for his preschool grad picture. Doesn't he look handsome?!
