We were excited to have Matt's brother (and Chelsea's fiance), Jon, and Chelsea's sister Lindsea visit for Easter. Aunt Chelsea and Uncle Jon gave Ian an early birthday present!
Ian loved meeting his two fish, Franklin and Francine. (Unfortunately, at the time of this writing, Franklin is no longer with us. Yes, Chelsea had to peel him out of the filter. Poor Franklin!)
On Saturday, we went to Windwood to play Frisbee golf.
Nice form, Kim!
Jon's scoping out his approach shot.
Ian is pondering how he can get Momma to pick him some more wild blackberries.
Way to go, guys! Ian enjoyed his treacherous ride.
One poor lost Frisbee was never found in the muck and mire.
But Jon was successful in rescuing these two!
Ian was excited to participate in the action and take a break from the stroller.
When we got home, Aunt Chelsea and Lindsea showed Ian how to dye Easter eggs.
Ian enjoyed every minute!
On Easter morning, Ian was thrilled to peer into his Easter basket of goodies!
Thanks for the cute Easter outfit, Grammy and Papa!
Momma and Daddy even let him eat some M&M's before breakfast! What a day!
Here are some fun Easter poses of our crew ...
Ian with some church friends, Christopher and Caleb.
Ian remembered from the church Easter egg hunt that there are sometimes things INSIDE the eggs. He wanted to stop after he found each egg to open it up.
He found one in his "house,"
and in the grass
and put them into the basket Uncle Jon held for him.
Ian was excited about the candy and the Easter fingerpuppets that were inside the eggs. (Thanks for the fingerpuppets, Brandons!)
Kim and Matt celebrate a job well-done on their Easter turkey dinner!
We enjoyed Chelsea's yummy Berry Delight for dessert.
After dinner, Ian tried on his ring bearer tux for the bride- and groom-to-be.
Lindsea did a great job of making Ian laugh.
On Monday, while Matt played golf, Chelsea, Kim, and Ian went to Space Center Houston. We took a tram ride around the NASA facilities,
including seeing some actual "Houston Rockets."
Ian thinks Chelsea would make a good astronaut!
Maybe he'll join her in space someday.
Today, Ian enjoyed using his new crayons to color in his Curious George coloring book. (Thanks, Grandpa and Grandma!!)
One Year Old!
