Happy Spring!

You know it's spring in Texas when the Bradford Pears are in bloom and the bluebonnets come out.
 The dogs love taking bluebonnet pictures.
The kids not so much.
 But they begrudgingly come along every year.
 I can even get them to hug.
 And sometimes there's a laugh.
Happy spring!

Zekers IS The Main Event

For No. 12 we grabbed a bunch of Zeke's friends after school and headed out to Main Event.
We had unlimited access to the ropes course.
We're learning the ropes. 
See what I did there? Ha ha.
 I got to do the activities with the kids. It was one of the funnest birthday parties I have hosted, and that's getting to be quite a few.
We also had unlimited laser tag.
I actually had the second highest score the first time (very rare for me). After that the boys learned what they were doing  I was always one of the lowest scores. Here the boys are looking at the results from one of the games.
 We wrapped up the evening at Mama's Pizza.
Zeke's twelveth birthday party was a success!

He Is Risen!

One afternoon near Easter Zeke and I 'egged' Daisy and Lijee. This note was taped to the door when they got home from school.
 DanFam5.1 went to Kansas to celebrate Easter.
 The weekend ended up being very windy and cold. That didn't stop us! Everybody is bundled and gathered, waiting to start the hunt.
Isabelle, Gavin, Elsie, Daisy, Zeke, Reika, Hailey, Eli
 Sunday was also windy and cold, but when the rain started Aunt Sharon suggested we hunt eggs inside the elementary. When you live in a rural town and 4 family members are teachers you can do that kind of stuff.
 The Daniels are Sing!ing.
 A few eggs were hidden in empty lockers. These kiddos decided to hide themselves in empty lockers.
My baby then...
and now.
 Thank you Jesus for dying on the cross for our sins.
