Kaia's Kite

Kaia got a kite for her birthday and today was the first day we flew it!  
It took a few minutes, but we figured out the best way to fly it was to run with it.
 She also got it holding still!  It was the first time we've flown kites all year...we all had a great time!  Of course, I didn't think to get the camera out until we were almost done!

Burning the Tree

We went to Lake Houston Park to burn the tree that Jon cut down from our back yard.  It was a Magnolia that had been dead since we moved into the house in January.
 Kaia spent time playing in the "giant sandbox" (actually a tent site!) while Jon set up the fire.
 We've always liked a good campfire!
Kaia LOVING her smore...we also had hotdogs and juice.





Easter 2010

An Easter "Dream Fairy" in the woods on Good Friday!
Easter really began for us on Friday at the ward's Easter Primary Activity.
The activity was at a park...Kaia's making a cake.
When the egg hunt began we weren't sure why Kaia was skipping over so many obvious eggs.
Soon we noticed that she was only hunting for blue eggs!
Each kid was allowed 10 eggs...victory is sweet!
On Sunday we decorated boiled eggs.  Check out that concentration!
We all got in on the decorating action.
We used a kit with baggies.  You put the dye(s) into the baggie with the egg and swirl it around with your fingers until the egg is coated.  This is so much better than trying to get our new 3-year old to balance an egg on a spoon in a cup of dye!
And the baggies have lots of uses!
The dyes dried in minutes...check out the green egg's "hat."
I love this picture!
If you put an egg in just the right spot, it can block all the sun in your eyes!
Kaia was very happy when she figured out how to peel the egg-ies!
