So many times in my life I think, "why do I bother doing...." Looking at these pictures I guess the answer is, "so the kids can have fun".
Why bother driving to Colorado when the kids are just gonna get sick? And why bother going to Garden of the Gods when they are going to cry that they have to walk too far because they don't feel good?
Why bother staying up until 2:30 am (after driving ALL DAY home from Colorado) to sew towel "hoodies" for the Easter Bunny to hide when the kids only wanted the candy... (although, I must say that when Cameron told the kids I made them, Landon said it was cool that I could "build" a towel)
and speaking of candy why bother giving up chocolate and all the "good" Easter candy for Austin when he doesn't like jelly beans and gummy candy anyway?
Why did I bother spending all day cooking a turkey dinner for Easter when the kids only wanted to eat the rolls (at least I used Rhodes rolls and didn't "bother" making them from scratch) and why did I give up my yummy traditional ham and scalloped potatoes and deviled eggs so that I could make something they would eat? Special thanks to Cam for going to the store at midnight so I could make dinner - Cam why did you bother?!
Why bother vacuuming when the kids are going to have an Easter grass fight before I can even put the vacuum away?
and as long as I'm at it - why did I bother making egg free, non dairy choc. chip cookies tonight just so Austin could take one bite and say, "ew, I don't like it."
Hallalujah, I brought the nebulizer with us to Colorado. Zac spent a lot of the time like this and the rest of the time sleeping, except at night - go figure.
When we pulled into the parking lot Cam said, "wow you gotta take a picture of that." I thought he was talking about the beautiful red rock formations... but he was talking about this car. Seriously, that is where the kids get it from!
The kids got grass EveryWhere!!! Down the stairs and hall, in their room and in the family room. They cleaned it up piece by piece, and made a game out that. Two games in one. Pretty fun.
