Reflections and Egg Hunting

First of all, I want to take a second to reflect on the Slice of Life Challenge. I am sooooooo glad I participated! I loved reading other people's posts everyday. I also loved getting comments from other people! People who felt the way I did, or gave great advice, or shared their experiences with me. I think, as humans, we are all craving to make connections with others and this challenge has helped to feed that craving a bit. I also was able to get some things out that I have always wanted to say or explore and that was amazing for me. I WILL continue to blog, and can't wait for the challenge next year!

Today was a pretty great day. I was so excited to have some decent weather! I was able to get a few things done, thanks to my sister-in-law and her fiance. They watched the baby while I showered and took Mallory's 2 year pictures outside.

See more photos here.

John and his parents and brother did some work in the garage, prepping to drywall the ceiling. Afterwards, we went to a birthday party,
It was dinosaur themed. My girls are the last two all the way to the right. And no, I would not have put the mask on the baby if she had cried about it - which she didn't...she really didn't mind at all for that minute it was on, and she LOVED laughing at all the other kids with their masks on!
went out to dinner, had an egg hunt at our house for Mallory, and dyed some eggs. More of these photos here.

Sorting her loot.

 A very busy day, but lots of fun with Mallory. Marin was really just along for the ride.  :)


  1. Great pictures! Mallory looked like she had a great day.

  2. Such a busy day and so many fun things to do. I am glad you have made it through the Slice of Life challenge! I have enjoyed reading about the many fun things you do and the ideas you have about things. Don't forget that the Slice of Life continues through the year every Tuesday!

  3. What a day filled with fun and you have the pictures to prove it! Those dinosaurs are pretty cute!
