Last week we headed to Stephen F. Austin state park and hiked some of the trails. It was nice to get out of the house and be outside. The kids enjoyed hiking and looking for animals and bugs. Hopefully, next time when we visit we will spend a couple of days camping.
That morning before we left we had muffins and fruit. (Thanks to Mary for letting us borrow some eggs :) ) Caroline was such a big help in the kitchen...

The kids loved these muffins. They are the Fiber 1 muffins. A box at Kroger's is almost $4, but at Sams a box with 3 bags in it is $1.91. I'm going back on Friday to stock up... I just hope there are some left.
Caroline loves to play with the boys sight word list from school. She looks at the words and says, "R, S, C" over and over again. These are her favorite letters of the alphabet.

The Hike...


The wild trio had a blast on Easter. They woke up on Easter morning to find baskets that the Easter bunny had left....

I worked until 11 am that day and then we loaded up and went to grandma Karen & Papa Daryl's house for Easter lunch and an egg hunt.

Grandma always has fun games planned for the kids. The winner of each game gets a prize.
