My sweet friend, Jen took me out to lunch for my birthday. I am so grateful for her!

I was so lucky to get to go listen to the Easter Cantata put on by the Carrollton Stake. It was BEAUTIFUL and I was sad that I wasn't performing in it! 
Jen, Laura, Amy, Angie and Katy
When it was over, I got to go to dinner with these wonderful women. (Fabian didn't stay long) I have loved and admired these ladies for many years and am blessed to call them friends!

Story time at the library became music time one day! Belton had a blast with the instruments.
He has discovered our bathroom scale lately and weighs himself all the time. One day he weighed Thomas!
Teeth brushing is funny business!
Belton loves it when he gets to watch a show in mama's bed while I get ready for the  day.
Trains have taken over our kitchen.
And puzzles have taken over our life. :-)
We love his hooded towels!
Cute boy before bed.
Crazy baby first thing in the morning!
He said, "Mama, pajamas off!!" I'm not sure how he got those off of himself. That was a first.
Laying with his favorite blanket.

Abuelos House

We went to visit Abuela and Abuelo on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. It was so nice to visit outside and let Abuelo enjoy the outdoors. 
 Four generations of Tovar boys.
 Belton and Emma had a blast playing together that day.

 It's officially spring!
We bought a lawnmower.
 And a weed eater.
 Fired up the grill for the first time!
 Yummy chicken!
 (Learned what NOT to do...)

 Tricycle rides to the park...
 And Matt's first time mowing our lawn!
This weather is beautiful! Please don't turn into summer!!

Neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt

 Our neighborhood had an awesome Easter Egg Hunt!
 Belton loved getting to see the Chick-fil-A cow and play at the park before the egg hunt started!

 Belton shook each and every egg before he put it in his bag. If it didn't make any noise, he didn't put it in his bag. Matt figured out that the quiet eggs were better because they had numbers in them that could get you prizes! Then we encouraged Belton to hold on to those eggs, too!

 Sweet boy loves his suckers!
 They also had lots of booths, a petting zoo, a DJ and a police truck.
 It was a good day!
Belton ALWAYS wants to get out and see the fire hydrants when we walk around the neighborhood. Sweet boy!

Fun with Claire

The Coopers came to visit during spring break and we got to celebrate Claire's birthday while they were here. Belton LOVED getting to go to Grandmom and Granddad's house and play with Claire and Dayton.

 These kiddos are so sweet!

 Love this boy.
 Sweet (almost) FIVE year old Claire!
Belton giving Mama a "sunflower". He always finds these flowers, picks them and tells me that he got a "sunflower for Mama". So sweet.
 We gave her this jewelry as part of her birthday gift. I think she liked it!
