Being a mommy is so much fun! I'm so proud of my little man! Wylie is finally jumping on the crawling bandwagon...well, sort of.

After church we went over to their house for an easter egg hunt and yummy lunch. The weather was beautiful and we all had fun. As soon as we got there, we took a quick family pic cause Wylie was super tired and fading quickly!
Here's a picture of all us girls, outside watching the kids play. Grandma Mary was there too but somehow she didn't make it in the picture :(
We bought Audrey her first "BIG GIRL BIKE" this weekend and she has had so much fun learning to ride it! Of course she was most happy about the fact that it is pink...her favorite color. She really hates wearing her helmet though cause she says it hurts...even though I'm sure it doesn't. So we tried to entice her by making her a little jealous and having Wylie wear it...it didn't work. He just ended up looking like a sissy boy ;)
The group was able to build this small home, from foundation to stucco, in 4 days! Amor, the organization that they worked with, had 20+ homes being built in that same area last week. I am so impressed that all of these kids would give up their spring breaks to do all of this work!
Here is the group of teens and a few adults from our church (Community Christian Church)...along with the family that they built the home for. The blue structure to the right was their current home, so now the family will be able to use both buildings.

And then of course, Michael and I are going out on a date tonight and going to dinner...I'm sure that won't be healthy! Ick! Good thing nursing burns 500+ calories/day!
Maybe I should start exercising!
My mom brought a lot of fun things for her and Audrey to do together. We all built this cute little bunny house. Audrey was very specific and precise about where she wanted each peice of candy to go (hmmm, wonder who she gets that from!)
My dad was very busy the whole time they were here. He, along with our friend Jacob, built 4 alters and a communion table for our old church. They turned out beautifully (wish I had a picture to show!) Audrey had fun out in the garage, playing with papa's pile of saw dust and building towers out of the scrap wood.

Oh, I have to mention something that Audrey said recently. She said "When I grow up I'm going to marry daddy cause I love him SO much!" and then she went on about how she was going to wear a pretty pink dress and a princess crown. I didn't think it would be very nice of me to break the truth to her by saying, "Sorry chick, he's mine! Find your own man!"
So, I've mentioned before how Wylie thinks that Audrey is the funniest person ever. So when I saw this yesterday, I just had to grab my camera and capture the moment. Man, I love my kids!
Remember to keep Michael and the rest of the group in your prayers throughout this next week while they are in Mexico. They leave tomorrow morning and are hoping for no rain. After reading Zach's blog (our youth pastor) I've found out a little more about who they will be builiding the home for..."The Salomon family lives in a home primarily constructed of used lumber, a dirt floor, and a roof made out of tarpaper. If you’re not familiar with tarpaper, think of a really thick, large role of construction paper that preschoolers make crafts with. You can imagine that won’t protect well when it rains even a little. They do not have electricity, drinkable water, a telephone, a car, or a refrigerator." I'm so proud of Michael and everyone else who is giving up their vacation to go and help this family!
