EaStEr 2011

Easter for us begins on Saturday when we have dinner with the Finley side. Although Chad and I missed the dinner because our vehicle shopping took way too long, the kids were there to enjoy and be enjoyed!
They hunted eggs with everyone again and again! Nanny tells me that they were great and that everyone had so much fun!
I'm so glad we have such loving families!
Our Sunday began at church with Nana and Pops.
We had lunch at their house along with an Easter egg hunt with all the cousins.
(the race begins!)

Duke is SERIOUS! (He had already shed his vest and hat :( )

Molly hears the talking egg and is trying to figure out where it's coming from!

Molly finds the prize egg!

Duke checks out what he scored in his basket!

After Nana and Pops', we headed to visit Nina and Papa.
We had to hunt eggs AGAIN (the kids love it!) and then we all went for ice cream!
Our day couldn't have been any better!
(unfortunately I wasn't at Nanny's to get any pics and I didn't take any at mother's b/c she has a FAB new camera and took all of the pics.)
We love our families!

Turner Field and Pine Mt. Ga.....

Last weekend we decided we would head out for a night and do some fun things with the kids.
Our first stop Saturday night was turner field to watch the braves. We ended up getting there late, the 4th inning I think, so we bought the cheapest seats they had. Once inside we stopped at the restroom and while Chad and Duke waited on Molly and I, Chad was telling Duke to look out at the field and see how close we were.
An usher heard Chad and since it wasn't a crowded game, he told Chad that we could sit in his section. So we ended up in the first row of the out field!
It was really neat to be so close!

After the game, the Braves did a fireworks show and of course we stayed for that!

Once the fireworks were over, we headed to our hotel in Atlanta to rest up for Sunday!
Sunday morning we went to Pine Mountain Ga for some safari fun!

We (Chad and I included) L.O.V.E.D. it!!

We rented a zebra striped van and bought a few bags of food for the animals
and were on our way!

This is what we encountered as we entered the gate!!!

It took us about an hour to drive through the gated area and saw ALL KINDS of animals!

It was hilarious b/c I would be turned away from my window taking a pic of Chad or the kids and then I would feel something breathing on the back of my neck! When I turned around it would be a buffalo, or a zebra, or a deer, or some other monsterous animal!

They are completely harmless (as long as your in your van!) and just want to be fed! I highly recommend a visit to Pine Mt. Ga Wild Animal Safari!
