22: Brogan's first time on his bicycle with no training wheels! He just loved it, he finally said to Brian, "just let me go"! So Brian did and away he went! Only thing was he didn't know how to stop and used the curb to do so!
24: Easter Day! The kids hunted for eggs and just like last year, Jexa wanted to eat the chocolate instead of look for the chocolate. They were so excited, the Easter bunny brought them aprons to help with baking!

28: Morning Sound Farm- May, 2011 - field trip with Brogan's preschool- it was FREEZING out - we still lasted 2 1/2 hours and Jexa was so proud to go with her brother on his field trip. They had a great time even though they were dressed for winter.

64: Lots of fishing, sand, swimming, running, playing in the play structure and boat rides. So much sun, water and fun!
69: LOOK AT THESE MUNCHKINS!
72: Brogan was in boy heaven at Willard Lake - he got to drive Uncle Paul's boat, then he got to drive this quad - which he was amazing at and so proud - of course Jexa has to sit on the quad as well and thought she should be able to drive it - then Daddy let him drive the van out of Willard Lake when we left - We also had a rousing game of soccer and when we were finished Brogan's head was completely soaked with sweat!
73: On our last couple of days the temperature cooled down quite a bit so the kids had fun outside the water with bubbles, bocce ball, playdoh, crafts and soccer.
