At our second annual spring extravaganza the Forrest family did not disappoint! Almost everyone turned up to celebrate Andy's 12th birthday and spend time together. I was also excited to meet baby Dallas for the first time! He is a Forrest for sure! The day was unusually hot for mid may, but then that seems to be the norm at our house. Every time we have a party, it's hot. Not sure if that's the universe trying to send us a signal or what, but anyway... The kids used the heat to their advantage with water guns, while the littlest ones played at the water table and in the baby pool. Livi and Emma stole my heart playing together and I ended up taking most of my pictures of the two of them. I feel blessed to be a Forrest and am already looking forward to seeing everyone again soon!!!

I'm not exactly an arts and crafts type of mommy. The main reason is because I am already thinking about the mess that will surely follow before the art supplies are even out of the closet. However, I put thoughts of disaster out of my mind and decided that we would try to dye Easter eggs this year. I felt silly when they did a great job and made almost no mess at all! And even if they had made a mess, this was so worth the smiles. This year we did our usual Easter stuff, starting with egg hunts in each of their classes at Calvary, the church hunt at Nana and Pop's house and then the Ezell family hunt on Sunday. We had a great weekend!
