Happy Easter!

 Life has been pretty crazy here lately but we got to have a nice Easter weekend.  Friday was beautiful and the kids dyed eggs outside.  (If it had been rainy I would have made them do it in the garage because egg dyeing is not going to happen in my white kitchen without a lot of stress.  This way we can all enjoy it!)

 We brought the cats out to see what they thought of the outdoors.  They weren't fans.

 This morning we got up much earlier than we normally do on Sundays so we could get to the early service.

 Looking good and out the door by 7:45!


 After church we came home and had resurrection rolls and Jack hid Hatchimal eggs for Alice to find.

We had dinner at Jay's parents' house--with an indoor egg hunt since it was in the 30s!

Happy Easter!

The Shiners Circus

I'm more than a month late in posting, but we went to the circus!  Alice had been asking to go so she was so excited!
 
We had front row seats!
 
Tigers

Trapeze artists
 


Spider-Man came and did some tricks.


Hula hoops!
 
Trick riding
 
Dogs!
 
Tightrope walkers!
 
During the intermission they rode the elephant.  You can see they were pretty excited about it!
 

My very favorite thing was the little dog in the elephant costume!
 

The cats were pretty entertaining, too!
 

Alice was looking forward to the aerialists, but I think they were a letdown after seeing The Greatest Showman.
 
It was a great time!

Share the Fun

 The first part of this year has been taken up with Share the Fun, the county 4H talent show.

Alice was Mary Poppins in our club's large group act.
 
 Jack was Mickey Mouse!

 Alice also was Alice in Wonderland.  Her Mary Poppins costume had velcro down the back so she could make a fast wardrobe change!

 The cast of the large group act!

 Mickey and Minnie were interviewed about their 4H club.

Alice and the White Rabbit
 

 They worked so hard on this and they did such a great job!

They won first place!

Wichita (Day 2)

 We started out our second day at the Museum of World Treasures.

 They've got just about everything there!

 Alice was really interested in the mummies.

 Looking presidential!

 There's just so much to do and see there!

 In the afternoon we visited the Sedgwick County Zoo.

 I'm pretty sure we took a picture with just about every statue they had!




 And of course we saw the real animals, too!


 I love watching the otters!
 




We made it home that evening, very tired!  We had a great time, though, and I would love to go back to Wichita and explore some more!
