Have I mentioned before that Morgan likes to get into EVERYTHING? haha I know I have, but it is true. She is a very busy girl, but I know she is a smart girl too and she pays way more attention to us than I thought. The other day I saw her get my Ipod out of the drawer and do this.
Morgan also loves music now. My favorite example of this is when I was driving around running errands and  listening to Weezer. It is a really nice day so I rolled down some of the windows. As I was singing along to the song, I look back to see her smiling ear to ear and moving to the music.

Growing up one of my best friends and I bonded over the fact that we know a lot of different lyrics, sometimes to the most obscure songs. He and I always had a bet that our kids would be stronger in this "talent" the the others. Although we were only (sort of ) kidding about this I watch Morgan and wonder if she will be interested in music like I was. My friend has since passed on, but certain songs make me feel like he is right here with me.

Easter Sunday

After church on Sunday Kevin's side of the family all met up at his parents house for Easter dinner. It is nice when the family gets together. Especially, because Morgan loves playing with her cousins and her grandparents dog, Sophie.

After we ate we drove around on the golf carts (they live on a golf course) and ended up among some citrus trees. One thing led to another and we ended up playing baseball with a stick and some fruit. We all took turns trying to bust open the fruit. Juice was being sprayed and chunks of fruit flew everywhere. It was all pretty fun, except the part where I scraped up my arm by choking up to high on the stick :(. We were also  bummed because no one had brought a camera to capture the moment.

After going back to the house for a bit we decided to head back out on the golf carts to feed some turtles and fish in some of the ponds on the golf course.

But then it quickly turned into Morgan's bedtime and she let us know. So...when we got back to the house it was time to go home.

I hope everyone had a happy Easter!

Egg Hunt

The day before Easter our church hosted a little picnic and Easter egg hunt. Morgan loved running around and playing with the other kids.
When it came time for her to hunt for eggs and knew just what to do.
She had so much fun that she crashed soon after we got home and didn't wake up until 8am!

I feel like I have been SUPER busy lately, but I don't really have much to show for it.  I  have been called to be the 1st counselor in the Young women's program at my church for about 3 months now. That means Tuesday  night activities, every other Thursday leadership meetings, and then I have to meet with the presidency of the class I am over. So...all that on top of trying  to keep the house clean, cooking, laundry, taking care of a child *read-spend quality time with her* , running all sorts of errands, and trying to get your taxes done (yes I know I am cutting it close here), it can start to feel like a lot after a while. I know that these things are good things to complain about, well, all except the taxes :(, but I just wanted to let you know that this is why I haven't been as good about keeping up with my blog lately.

I also wanted to share a few pictures that I hadn't had the chance to post yet.

I hope everything is going well with all of you guys!
