Andrew has really gotten into making all sorts of things out of Legos. It helped that we had a friend give us her son's old Legos, so now he has quite the collection of the colorful bricks. Here are some pictures of things he has created. His favorite things to create are spaceships and Lego City buildings.

Last month we ventured up to the Skagit Valley to see the tulip fields in full bloom. It was a gorgeous day! We ended up having a picnic in the parking lot of one of the fields before we headed out.On our way home we stopped by the Alderwood Mall to go to the Lego Store. And we found the cutest little potty in the mall's family bathroom. :)

Here are some pictures of us on Easter. Andrew, Caitlynn and Josiah Caitlynn in her outfit from Nana Caroline. When my mom gave me the dress and cardigan for Caitlynn I knew I wanted it to be her Easter dress. And I wanted a family picture of us on Easter, so I had us all match. I ended up finding a shirt for Micah and a skirt for me that matched perfectly to Caitlynn's outfit. And just because she is so adorable, here is another picture of our little beauty. We had a wonderful day celebrating the resurrection of our Savior. The weather was gorgeous! We spent the morning giving the boys their Easter baskets and getting some pictures, then it was off to gather with our church family. After church we headed to my parents' house where we had a wonderful meal with my dad's side of the family.

I love to make things, so here are some of the things I have made recently. Andrew has been loving Legos, but he wasn't too keen on the picking up of the Legos. That's when I remembered a tutorial for a Lego sack I found at Make It Perfect.
At the end of last month Andrew turned 4. We did many things to celebrate. Andrew got to go out on a Mommy and Daddy date where we took him to Kidd Valley for hamburgers and milkshakes. And then we went and saw a puppet show of three Eric Carle stories. We had lots of fun. On the morning of his birthday Daddy made him special pancakes, one even had a number 4 made out of chocolate chips. Then it was time to open one present (we saved the other little presents for his party). The not so fun part of his day was going to the doctor and getting 4 shots. But after that we had lunch at Red Robin, and enjoyed a nice time as a family.

Kerikeri was our last stop on our New Zealand trip. We almost didn't go up there because there had been a lot of rain, so much that it was flooding up in the Bay of Islands. (Kerikeri is one of the towns in the Bay of Islands.) But we called up our B&B and they said it should be fine; there was no flooding near them and all the main roads were now open. So we decided to risk it, and we are very glad we did. We took these two pictures on our drive up to Kerikeri.

Because of our delay in Queenstown, we only had one night in Rotorua instead of two. So we tried to pack what we could in our short time there. We walked around some of the geothermal pools and peeked in at the Bath House and Museum before we headed out to our Maori village cultural experience.
