Downtown Dallas

Last weekend we meet up with my brother and his family and went to downtown Dallas. There is a really cool park over the highway that has a lot of fun things to do. They have a big grassy area that you can play on, a regular park, splash area, and food trucks. We also went to the art museum, I think we made some of the workers nervous having 8 kids running around. Then to finish the afternoon we took the kids on the Trolly, that was my boys favorite part. I really like how Dallas is a really family friendly city.

Elizabeth @ 1 month

Elizabeth has been with us for a month now.
She's already smiling and talking and it's the cutest thing. 
There are days she refuses to be put down, I love the cuddles but it would be nice to get something done. 
Some nights she has longer stretches without feedings, but we still don't have a routine; I'm not going to lie I'm excited when we start having a regular nap routine but till then I will enjoy this newborn stage. 
Now there is a debate if she we will have blue eyes, Dustin thinks she might, I think they will go brown, but I will say her eyes are bluer than my other kids. Time will tell.
We love this sweet girl of ours.

We had a great Easter this year. 
Of course we did dye some eggs.
We did Easter baskets on Saturday, Oliver was the most excited, he woke up bright and early and he had to wait for his brothers to wake up.

Then we had an Eater egg hunt with family and friends.
I didn't get an Easter Sunday picture because one, Elizabeth and I didn't go to church and I ran out of time between making Easter dinner and we always had at least one kid taking a nap, so maybe next year...

Birth Announcement and Newborn Pictures

I had a lot of fun taking Lizzie's newborn pictures! Dustin's sister is a photographer who hooked me up with some amazing props and gave me a link of photography workshops, so the last few weeks of pregnancy I watched about ten hours of photography classes and I was excited to practice what I learned. 
Lizzie is growing so fast! She is one loved girl.
